40K Neotube - 8/25/10

It hit earlier this week, so for many this isn't a rare find or a hidden gem.  But it does look like someone over at the Ultramarines Movie production team did some research and figured out how to make a trailer.  While it doesn't really reveal anything, it does show more of the Marines then a guy lost in thought about whether he left his stove on or not...before the attack that may or may not be going on around him.

So yeah, this is a far better trailer, and it has recaptured the excitement I know I had going into the reveal of that first trailer.

Dawn of War II - Retribution Announced

Okay as much as I don't have time to post anything right now, I cannot pass up this news.  THQ has announced a new Dawn of War II expansion, Retribution, to be released March 2011.

Taking place years after the events in Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising, this title allows players to choose their perspective with the first multiple-race single player campaign in the Dawn of War II series. The first race to be revealed is the savage Orks, but no matter which race is chosen players will be taken on an epic journey through each story arc, revealing the answers to many questions left open in previous Dawn of War titles.
As well as the single player campaign, RetributionTM will feature new multiplayer units, maps and an entire new playable faction when it ships.
Let's just soak this in.
  • Multi-race Single Player campaign, hopefully similar to what we had with Dark Crusade
  • New Faction (I'd love it to be the Daemon or Witch Hunters to tie in with the Blood Raven story line, but I'll take whatever).
  • New Multiplayer Units
  • Answers
2011 can't come fast enough.

Hit the jump to see the Debut Trailer, and head over to the Dawn of War Community Site to see the press release.

40K Neotube - 8/18/10

So it's been another crazy week at work.  And another crazy week at home.  And so my 40K time has been almost nothing.

What that means is I was so thankful for the Ultramarines Movie guys to take pity on me and release this video of the director and artists discussing the work that's gone into this movie.

40K Neotube - 8/11/10

My apologies for no Neotube updates last week, but it was just a really shitty crappy week.  I was swamped at work, and my time at home was busy.  This week is no easier as my lovely wife has decided she wants a bigger house which will give me more room for miniature modeling, but will crimp my time getting our current house "sale ready" and then, assuming we can sell and buy, then I'll have redecorating and moving.

However, my magnets from the free magnet day at came in, unfortunately they charged full price, and I have not been able to talk to somebody there (though I have left messages).  So while I deal with that I also have magnets which is something I wanted/needed for my Ork Trukk.  So in honor of the Ork Trukk I have no time to paint, here's a video about Ork Trukk usage.
