A fan made Warhammer 40,000 video has gone viral as it showcases the ruthless efficiency of the God Emperor’s elite soldiers, the Astartes.
The video is the fourth installment of the Warhammer fan film project which has been churning out the videos over the past year.
This fourth installment shows the elite Astartes taking down a pair of Psykers using well-planned battle tactics and sheer determination.

“Wow thank you for all the positive feedback guys! And a huge thanks to the supporters helping make this possible! If anyone has questions, I’ll try and keep on top of this thread and answer what I can. You guys rock! Cheers!”
