Warhammer 40k Fan-Made Film Unveils Epic Prologue

Erasmus Brosdau — a senior 3D artist, filmmaker and now in the running for “World’s Biggest Warhammer 40k Fan” — has created one of the most incredible fan-made films of all time. The current art director at the video game company Crytek began looking for a new challenge in 2010 and decided to make a short film set in the Warhammer 40k universe. Beginning with a blog, he started to garner ideas, render up a few 3D models and the fan base for the project started to grow exponentially.

In 2011, Brosdau and his team released a short trailer on YouTube, which shot to a million views in no time. Cue six years of work designing the characters, outlining the story and then ‘porting’ it all to CryEngine Cinebox (a real-time rendering powered engine for cinematics) and voilà — an epic homage built by experts and powered by passion was born.

It’s said best on the “Lord Inquisitor” website: “The Lord Inquisitor is a project for the fans, by fans, setting the grim-darkness of the forty-first millennium to film.”

The full-film is scheduled to be released next year and it’s likely to blow the minds of Warhammer 40k fans and non-fans alike.
