I like the chad on the left, even tho his missing a leg he still keeps on shooting


Turk3YbAstEr

"brother, I don't need my legs to aim my bolter"


Hookilation

I saw another animation where an Iron Fist Space Marine lost an arm and kept firing his gun.


Imperium_of_Me

He doesnt need to reload after his bolter runs out if ammo, he can simply bludgeon them with his severed arm.


UltraCarnivore

Angry Marines confirmed Sons of Dorn


loafpleb

We just call them Black Templars


GMAN25639

"I haven't lost an arm brother, it's right over there"


CyclopsAirsoft

There are techniques for reloading a rifle 1-handed. You use your leg while kneeling to hold it still upside-down and use your 1 working arm to change the magazine. Some militaries practice this so that a soldier can still use their weapon even if they suffer an arm injury.


bob_s_hat

Iron fist? Are you sure it wasn't an Imperial Fist?


Hookilation

Yep, it's Imperial Fist, my bad.


bleeters

The sodaz siege animation? I miss it. Like I know I can watch a reupload but it's just not the same somehow.


bob_s_hat

Np man, I know that one, it's really good!


Peenutjuice2

The [Iron Fists](https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Iron_Fists) are an Iron Hands successor chapter, for what it's worth.


bob_s_hat

Yeah, I know but I had suspicions that I knew what video he is referencing and I was correct! (It's siege by SODAZ if you're interested)


YouDumbZombie

I too have seen the movie Predator lol.


Jehoel_DK

"It's just an arm. The Emperor saw fit to grant me with a spare"


Chaotic-Entropy

Lose an arm, gain a club. Silver linings.


_Sausage_fingers

Unless you want to be shit out of a gaunt in a couple hours you don’t just get to tap out for losing a limb. Shit, look at Calgar, he went full [Black Knight ](https://imgur.com/a/IzQP6tu) and had to keep at it.


Cazadore

you dont get shit out of a gaunt. you get shit out of a brood chamber as at least 3 new gaunts... tyranids dont eat, everything dead gets recycled.


evilinsane

There's a cool bit at the start of Galaxy in Flames where a Son of Horus is hit with a magnetic wave that crumples his gauntlet in upon itself, crushing the hand down to a stub. Later, a character speaks to him on the vox and asks about his hand. "I got rid of it," is the reply, "it was slowing me down." So badass.


nuttyjawa

Carton de Wiart A chap who was shot many many times, one time his hand was injured and doctors refused to amputate his fingers, they were giving him so much bother he bit them off...


interkin3tic

Wasn't clear to me from u/nuttyjawa's post but that actually happened, this is not WH40k lore. Also it was artillery, not bullets. [Source](https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30685433)


nuttyjawa

I never mentioned bullets messing his hand up, but thank you for adding the other bits, I think I accidently truncated the first sentance where I had said that it's possible he was insperation for characters like the above


interkin3tic

Of course, your post wasn't wrong at all, just easy for me to misread before coffee! I assumed bullets, wanted to clarify for anyone else that it was way more badass than that.


Spikes_in_my_eyes

Same line is used in Horus Rising.


Mr_Vulcanator

In Flight of the Eisenstein (I think that’s the title) a Death Guard loses both his arms fighting xenos. He proceeded to kick things instead. The book doesn’t say if he lived but considering how much of the legion was present he probably got help.


greymalkin1955

for the emperor !!!

Could you imagine if they were Dark Angels? ["Brother I have fallen! Might you assist me up? Brother?"](https://www.deviantart.com/ruoyuart/art/Brother-I-have-fallen-749338912)


countcomelord

Oi you bloody wanker!!! You got a permit for that animation?


Nuwave042

No? *I'll have you beheaded*


sexyyodaLOL1985

What’s this clip from? It’s awesome!


Curiordis

I believe it's from the Astartes 2/astartes project teaser trailer ~~that appeared in the astartes finale?~~ Edit: I was only partially correct pls stop upvoting me


sexyyodaLOL1985

Brilliant thanks mate I’ll look that up.


xboxwirelessmic

Watch astartes and have seen the most awesome thing you ever will. Then search for astartes with doom music and blow that out of the water lol


YouDumbZombie

Another good one is Godzilla with doom music.


Alpha-Senpai

No, that scene was a single Astartes advancing into enemy fire, then dropping out of frame to reveal an APC/tank-type vehicle behind him.


meekles

Right, it is from the Astartes guy, but it’s a separate teaser trailer. https://youtu.be/yDuRYxj1TdA


Curiordis

Ah for some reason I blended them together.


Tuggernuts77

This scene is also at the end of the final episode of Astartes, I'm not sure if they changed it after putting on the warhammer website but on YouTube with the original owner this was in the last episode.


Nightman67

No this was from his Patreon to tease future projects. Before being picked up by GW


Tuggernuts77

It might be, but he added it to the end of the last episode as well.


HimOnEarth

No, he didn't. Just the one dude firing his bolter, getting some (I believe Eldar) return fire, he jumps down, a Predator tank rolls up behind him and fires two shots. Black screen, text about helping the Astartes project, video ends


Tuggernuts77

Right, that's the edit after warhammer got him. Before that, the ending included the new work he was working on including this clip, the lamenters fighting orks, the storm lords(?) Leaving a rhino and some others.


SeriousSpy

No, it isn't. I have an original version downloaded from Youtube, this is not in it. This was from his Patreon, it was never added to the original version of Astartes.


CorranHuss

No it was a patreon only clip for the next phase before he got bought by GW. The clip was part of a longer WIP video


BlackViperMWG

Nah that's not it, there wasn't tyranid scene


Weaponized-Potato

Too bad its creator is working for GW. Not that I’m complaining but I’d rather pay the guy so I can see his awesome masterpieces instead of putting up with GW’s bs. The Astartes project is definitely out of the window (God Emperor please let me be wrong) but we may yet see Syama Pedersen’s works in the upcoming Grey Knights game, its trailer looks so much like the original Astartes series.


Josiador

Astartes 2 was in the Warhammer + announcement trailer, it's absolutely happening.


Weaponized-Potato

Well fuck me, I’m glad I’m wrong! By the Emperor, you got a link, mate? Never mind, found it.


Josiador

I can't find the video specifically, but I remember it was on one of their livestreams. It definitely had Astartes 2, though we didn't get any new footage unfortunately. Honestly, I'm happy. I'd rather we get it with official approval, even if its behind a pay wall, than not get it at all.


Peenutjuice2

you... do realize GW is paying him more than his patreon would, right? lol


Weaponized-Potato

Well, that I’m not sure of; but if he’s getting paid a hell lot more then, good. He deserves it because he single-handedly made whatever animation GW produced before acquiring him look like trash (excluding certain game trailers such as DoW3’s). I was overly negative in my previous comment about Syama working for GW. Guess I was pissed that his series got modified and removed from YT, along with what happened to Sodaz. I just hope Astartes 2 is as good as or better than the original.


Peenutjuice2

> Well, that I’m not sure of Well, seeing as how legally he'd soon be facing zero dollars, I'd say I'm correct.


Weaponized-Potato

Yeah, and he would have a team helping him with stuff so that’s much better. Also, no copyright troubles now that’s he working for GW.


Capuch3

It's actually the trailer he gave to his patreon before beeing integrated in GW hivemind


JustHereForDrama

[here](https://youtu.be/4aTFVoAGQBI)


tehwubbles

It's from \[REDACTED\]


Josiador

Astartes 2 trailer.


DekkerDavez

That is something we will never get.


Board-To-Dead

What chapter are these boys?


SpiggitySpoo

The guy who made Astartes used a homebrew Imperial Fists chapter for the first series, I think this is another similar chapter for this new one


Da_GentleShark

Yeah, though in a teaser where you see asartes one by one he showed the black dragons so maybe one day we´ll have our weird boys.


smb275

Death World Australius. "For the Emperor, ya cunts!"


Stuffman1861

That's just Catachan


davsheep

Isn't Catachan not *loosely* based on Vietnam?


Comprehensive-Fail41

Africa is closer with its jungles and ACTUAL megafauna. Australia just got spiders and snakes, which Africa also got


killerpythonz

Hahahahahahahhahah. Go jump in the water in northern Queensland, or off the ocean in South Australia. We also have the most dangerous octopuses, shellfish, birds and marsupials in the world. Marsupials ain’t generally gonna kill you, but the first 3 mentioned are. In fact, the only thing we don’t have the most dangerous of, is mammals. Excluding humans.


Beardywierdy

And kangaroos are still pretty fighty bastards when they're in the mood. Just lacking hippos and a big mammalian predator really.


obscureferences

Hic Sunt Sick Cunts.


lookstep

Unroll the second pair of socks. Shake out the boot. We're good.


YouDumbZombie

4 seconds of Astartes is still better than any movie I've seen since Mad Max Fury Road. I would die happy if in my lifetime I see a 40K MCU style movie universe.


killerpythonz

I thought fury road was way overhyped. Good, but not holy shit this awesome. Kind of like Black Panther. I agree though, most films have been meh in the last 6 years. Thor; Ragnorak is one of the only movies I’d put in my top 10. However, depending on what you’re into, Logan Lucky and Knives Out are definitely better than Fury Road. They’re amazing.


YouDumbZombie

Black Panther was okay, it's a Marvel movie so it has a formula. Fury Road was the best action movie since Terminator 2. There's so much love and artistry in that movie. Seeing all the cars they really built and all the cool world building stuff. You can pause the movie on a lot of shots and parcel out the details of little things like shifter knobs, gas pedals, steering wheels, etc. Not to mention all the incredible stunt work. They set a record for most car flips in a car crash filmed when the Black on Black gets destroyed in the beginning and that big rig flip at the end was insane, the behind the scenes on that is great. It's also a film that uses barely any CGI, only during the sand storm and when the big rig explodes if I remember correctly. Those pole dancer boarding parties are all real stunts too! I loved Knives Out! but it's not comparable to Fury Road, completely different films trying to achieve completely different things. Ragnarok is definitely one of my favorite MCU movies with Winter Soldier still being at the top of the list.


killerpythonz

But, to be less argumentative, if you liked Knives out, dude Watch Logan Lucky. It’s equally as what the fuck?, good.


YouDumbZombie

I'll check it out thanks for the recommendation.


killerpythonz

Black Panther was definitely good. Unfortunately it suffered from yeah. Hold, the, fuck, up. Between ‘91 and ‘15, there multiple movies that are far greater than both. Gladiator, IMO, is the single greatest movie ever made. I’d argue it’s as much as action as it is historical. The Patriot is shitting over most. Action and historical, but still. Is the Lord of the Rings an action movie? It’s that hard fantasy/ action. You weren’t comparing movies either, you simply stated ‘any movie.’


killerpythonz

We lost a war to Emus, you’re greatly overestimating our capabilities, it’s much more run and hide from the terrifying bug.


condog2211

You've never been face to face with one of those... Things. Not when they are getting closer, not with bodies lying next to you. Never forget. Death to the emu's, glory to straya


UltraCarnivore

Hivefleet Emu is coming. Resistance is tasty.


Easy_Mechanic_9787

Glory to the Emperor and for the God-King and Country


solarus44

What people forget is that it was just three dudes, one gun and a truck, emus are very fast and durable, and that Australian farmers then achieved the 'objective' later


killerpythonz

I don’t think anybody forgets that, it’s just hilarious that the first ‘war’ went so ridiculously badly, they trolled it even back then. > ‘The machine-gunners' dreams of point blank fire into serried masses of Emus were soon dissipated. The Emu command had evidently ordered guerrilla tactics, and its unwieldy army soon split up into innumerable small units that made use of the military equipment uneconomic. A crestfallen field force therefore withdrew from the combat area after about a month.’ > ‘If we had a military division with the bullet-carrying capacity of these birds it would face any army in the world ... They can face machine guns with the invulnerability of tanks. They are like Zulus whom even dum-dum bullets could not stop.’


gudbote

"Emus are very fast and durable" - go on, Inquisitor Kryptman, I'm taking notes..


AjaxAsleep

Out of curiosity, has anyone tried to match that orange? I like it, but I'm not sure how to get it.


greensike

try searching for a burnt orange or ochre if youre trying to match it


Mejormayor

Try Jokaero over a black base


Cool-Champion8628

Australia is basically an Astartes recruitment world.


Comprehensive-Fail41

Nah. Australia is overrated. The true Death World is Africa, which in addition to lethal snakes and spiders also got actual mega fauna, like hippos, rhinos, elephants, lions and so on


Drachos

Its a bit unfair comparing a place 3 time the size. Especially when the African megafauna evolved with us. Ppl seem to forget that. We killed it everywhere else cause to Australia's Thylaco leo or the sabertoothed lion of America we just showed up one day. African wildlife knew us when we were monkey's. So of course evolved countermeasures back when we were homo erectus.


Comprehensive-Fail41

Said countermeasures being long sharp sticks. Meanwhile, Australias ecosystem gets wrecked by anything from outside cause it evolved in isolation for millions of years.


Iwantmahandback

Except we have to use bolt action bolters


Princess_Kushana

Oi! That's my mate Bruce! Real night on the piss that was.


GrimzagDaWikkid

Can confirm. A number of my mates have had the black carapace installed. They won't give an Ork WarBoss like me one though. I am already too tough!


CambionClan

Can’t be Australia, they have guns.


jkamen3193

Getting rid of huntsman spider nests seems to be getting harder and harder these days


killerpythonz

I used to have a truce with Huntsmans. You’ve got your room, I’ve got mine. Out of site, out of mind. Saw one that my hand couldn’t fully cover. And I’ve got big hands. It was in the spare room, completely opposite to my room. He’s stays in his room, I stay in mine. 3 nights later, 1am, went for a piss. Feel something on my foot. That fucking cunt. It’s been war ever since


Marconius6

Isn't it actual lore the Emperor had trouble subjugating Australia during the Unification Wars and basically left it last?


TiredOfBushfires

if this is true id love to Di some reading


Comprehensive-Fail41

Eh, Australia IRL is a bitch to conquer. You either land on the east coast where all the population is concentrated... along with all the coastal defences. Or you prepare to trek across the entire fucking continent through a very harsh and unforgiving desert


killerpythonz

Even on the east coast it’s hardly concentrated. South east coast sure, but in Qld, the further north you go, the further couple of hundred of kilometres further north the next town is.


Drachos

Yeah but then you have to navigate the great barrier reef. You try to bring a battleship through that, see how far you get. Australia's north coast also has a lot of cliffs which makes landing there difficult to.


killerpythonz

You know, the Great Barrier Reef is nothing compared to what’s happening on the other side of the country. I shit you not, you hit Ningaloo and there’s fish the length of you, swimming around you after a couple of steps. It’s fucking amazing. The GBR however, is doing fuck all to stop a battleship. We also don’t have a lot of cliffs. We just have a shit tonne of nothing relevant, indirectly making us one of the most powerful guerrilla forces in the word.


OldMateCob

Can confirm fighting off huntsmans this size is a weekly thing.


TTThatguy90

Footage of Australian troops fighting in the emu wars circa 1932*.


DepravedDebater

So what you're saying is all the Tyranids need to do to defeat humanity is assimilate the Emus. Because Australia got it's ass kicked by a bunch of fucking Emus and lost an actual war to them. Emps really didn't think one through.


RurikTheDamned

So how does that explain the antimasker pansies?


Heavenfall

Some people have fought Tyranids, Necrons, Orks, Traitors and Tau. Doesn't mean they know shit about fighting papa Nurgle.


RaptorJon

Ironic


Hypatiaxelto

They are here to test our resolve to purge the heretics...?


RichardBlastovic

Considering the 15,000 anti-vax protesters we had in Sydney yesterday the plan is not working.


AussieMaaaate

Cancel the cenno payments of everyone at that rally. That'll wipe out most of the cunts. Cane toads strapped to angry emus will mop up the remainders.


solarus44

Yeah cause fuck their kids and those that are dependent on them!


AussieMaaaate

Calm down snowflake it's a joke.


RichardBlastovic

He's got a point, mate. Actually didn't think of it meself. Still reckon they're dumb fucks, eh.


killerpythonz

The biggest joke of our nation, people that have kids to claim cenno.


RichardBlastovic

I reckon most of them are actually employed. All the people I have known who have to take Centrelink payments have been intelligent and decent folks down on their luck.


AussieMaaaate

Definitely. How these mouth breathers can hold a job is beyond me.


Vengeful_Dropbear

They work for companies owned by Scomo's mates that dont have to compete for their contracts because theyre corrupt

Why do you think marines from Prosperous have an Australian accent?


mrsim20

why cant we get a Netflix show already


Fattdogg5

Am Australian, can confirm


WWDubz

No bears tho


killerpythonz

Hahaha, mate, you ever heard of drop bears?


Emperor-Orcy

This is true, currently fighting off hordes of Cassowaries to initiate into the Astartes


killerpythonz

As a child reading the most dangerous animals in Australia, I grew up fearing a cassowary encounter far more than I should’ve.


SunnyChow

Astarte is just a mispell of Australian

As an Australian I fully agree. Though where are the crocodiles,spiders,sharks and jellyfish


guutarajouzu

Yeah nah, it's the small bugs you really gotta look out for. I'd much rather have a face-sized huntsman in the house than a redback or a funnel-web

MoshedPotato93

Yo is this new Astartes animation? Is there more?


Marvynwillames

It was a teaser he posted on his patreon, before being hired by GW. The animation preview showed an Astartes 2, maybe he finished it.


MoshedPotato93

Thanks to GW I doubt we'll see it unfortunately


Zawisza_Czarny9

Poland:you sure about that?


Own-Second1739

The creator forgot to make it so that everything in the video was also on fire.

Idk what everyone is complaining about. They're just the little ones.
