“The Space Hulk was spotted at the outskirts of the Segmentum Obscura. It was identified as a Genestealer-infested Hulk and was codenamed the ´Herald of Anguish´.

The Hulk was a unique combination of technologies. Its origins spanned over galaxies and millennia. Intact it would yield an enormous value to humanity and its Emperor. Therefore, it was decided to carry out a boarding action to secure the hulk. However, nuclear scans indicated that it was infested with thousands of Genestealers.

The honour of boarding the hulk was given to the Blood Angels Chapter. It was decided to launch a first wave of one hundred Space Marines, all clad in full Terminator armour. Their task was crude and cruel: capture the Hulk and rid it of its dreaded cargo.”

Welcome to The Herald of Anguish blogg. The Herald of Anguish is a non-profit project aiming to make a 3D-animated clip of an intense fight between a squad of Blood Angels Terminators and hordes of genestealers onboard a Space Hulk.

This project is carried out by four friends working with 3D graphic design. Our inspiration is the classic board and computer games “Space Hulk” by Games Workshop. This web site is completely unofficial and in no way endorsed by Games Workshop Limited. The project is just for fun and our tribute to the world of Warhammer 40K.

Our blogg will continuously be updated during the production of the movie.

Please feel free to post any comments.
The Premiere is planned sometime in the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, at a Youtube channel near you…

Painted Terminator 3D-Print

It's been a long time since last post and you probably wonder if the project has been forgotten. Due to heavy workload during the later part 2010 the motivation to start to work on the project during evenings has been quite low, but progress is still made and hopefully we can get something new for you to look at sooner or later. In the meantime you can take a look at the 3D-printed model that Creative Tools was so kind to print for me. During the Christmas holiday I got some time off and painted it. It’s a side-track but I hope you like it =)

Herald Of Anguish on Creative Tools Blog

One of Herald Of Anguish's 3D-models was part of Creative Tools weekly 3D-Printing lottery and fortunally won this week. Creative Tools printed the model with their 3D-printer and the result is this. I'm exited to see it in real life =)

Fire and Lighting test

As we are getting closer to animation and rendering we have committed some tests to determine the look of the animation. Below you can see a fire and lighting test featuring one key character with heavy flamer.

Herald of Anguish on YouTube

To collect all clips and previews in one place we have created a YouTube-channel dedicated to the project. All clips will of course be linked from this site but be welcome to subscribe if you don’t want to miss anything.

Heavy Flamer

A Terminator Squad is not complete without some sort of heavy weapon, our project will feature a Terminator equipped with a heavy flamer and will definitely bring havoc while fighting the genestealers.

Terminator Rig

the Terminator has gotten a fresh and new rig! We also did some animation tests to see if the rig would stand up to our needs. Below you can watch a quick walk cycle test. At this point the materials are only roughly setup and would require some adjustments further in to the project.

Space Hulk - Corridor system

the Herald of Anguish has been assembled bit by bit into a network of corridors and rooms. We based the layout on a mission from the Space Hulk rulebook called "Suicide Mission". The Hulk is completely rigged and all doors and lockers are controlled through a series of sliders which are packed together. The next step in the production will be to add lots and lots of pipes, terminals, lights etc. to make the Space Hulk as narrow, humid and inhospitable as we strive for.
