With the trailer out now for Dawn of War – see above – the folks at Awaken Realms were so overjoyed that they put their noses to the grindstone and painted up this brilliant looking tribute to the cinematic experience.
This piece shows an Imperial Knight smashing its way through the stomach of a Wraithknight from the Eldar faction in Warhammer 40,000. Just like in the sequence the Blood Raven Space Marine stands beneath these titans and watches them fall.
This is a great looking diorama that explores plenty of interesting techniques. We have glow effects, explosions, weapons, weathered armour, amazing scenic bases and more. It would be neat to see them do some more work based on Dawn of War in the future.
I never thought that an Imperial Knight could be that nimble to be honest but it was good to see them moving around in the trailer. As well as that it was nice to see the Wraithknights – effectively great big Eldar – gracefully moving about and then getting cut down.
What do you think of their duel?
