“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…

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.

hi, dont know if your gonna read this... but your flame animation is good...

however it is not a good representation of the /type/ of flamer used by space marines,

they use a liquid prometheum flamer, look at the flamers from episode 8 of "the pacific" by nbc, thats the effect... like a water hose but with flame... the petrol like prometheum can be seen to arc like a liquid, following the path of a water hose would on low-ish pressure (adjust path to fit the expected range of said flamer) with the stream of liquid on fire (although not reaching the ground)

look here for an example of a WW2 flame thrower in action (there are other videos linked in the youtube sidebar)

keep me informed yo!
