Watch: 'Guardsman' - A Gloomy Live-Action Warhammer 40K Fan Film
"The Emperor protects!" Nothing like a visit to the dark future that lies ahead. Guardsman is a fan-made short film based on the Warhammer 40,000 game series from Games Workshop. This very, very dark short is about a trooper named Guardsman Raines who ends up deep inside of enemy territory in an abandoned Imperial guard training facility. If you're a fan of the Warhammer 40K series, you know what to expect - and a Space Marine does show up to help him out. That's when this gets good, real good. Guardsman stars Erik Steffens, with Terry Skrinjar in the armor, and Pete Beaumont as the voice of the Space Marine. This is very short and I do wish there was more to it, but it's impressive they made it without much to work with.
Thanks to io9 for the tip.
