Richard Boylan : Hey Guys, sorry I haven't been as active in the comments lately. I got hideously sick towards the end of making part 10 so I've been laying face down in bed since then in a puddle of my own filth. I get asked frequently how people can support me, and the answer is to just keep watching! (Unless you happen to own Netflix or something, then gimme a call.) Anyway time to rest up and then it's on to part 11!

Chapter Master Valrak : Richard, please. Stop this! There is only so much awesome I can take, brother!!!!

Tyler Mathis : Way I look at it, the beginning of this was a dream, or memory. Hazy at best, the lines and colors of reality blurred. As the series progresses the memories are fresher, thus of higher quality, until finally it is in the present day, clear as crystal.

timeninja888 : I actually love how it comes more clear as it goes on. It’s like Grimaldus’ haze and dark mood fades and he comes to clarity as the war begins.

Cato Sicarius : GW hire this man! We want 40K animated movies

LordMatt48 : Better than Last Jedi

Vindicare : ✠ ✠ ✠ No Pity!No Remorse!No Fear! ✠ ✠ ✠

Nazar Stepounuk : Oh no... Sir, do you realize that you just have killed the whole whine-stream of "There is no good 40k film"? What am I gonna whine about then? PS: And seriously, this is amazing! This is what everyone should do instead of whining - get up from their asses and make quality themselves. I respect you for your awesome work and wish you well. The Emperor Protects!

Darkrunn : Semi-spoiler... "This is a magnetic field stabilizer housing." "What does it do?" "It houses the stabilizers for the magnetic field generator." *>___>*

Raziel Uchiha : Why can't creators like you be the real stars of YouTube? The universe is ruled by chaos indeed, but, for the Emperor, we march on!


TF Allspark : This is beyond awesome. This is some of the greatest fan productions have had the pleasure of seeing!

SamZappo : Freakin love Grimaldus and the Templars. "You're objection is noted...and duly ignored."

Tom Eis : 1:10:45 hahaha - This is a magnetic field stabilizer housing - "What does it do?" - It houses the stabilizer for the magnet field In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only ... stupid questions!!

Green Bananas : "I lost interest when the numbers went past what I could count on my fingers" That is the most truly infantry thing I've ever heard in fiction.

Primarch Roboute Guilliman : Titan Sounds at the end are a definite improvement. :D

kubzos : I like how he is not removing his helmet every 5 second

1509Freeze : I just dont understand... Netflix & others are running around throwing money at shit stories and producing IP after IP searching for original content when there is something like this available. Doesnt need to be about SMs, i would be perfectly fine with IG or something else (i guess cgi marines would be way to costly for a series) BUT DO IT PLEASE!

Yaldabaoth : I just had a one hour twenty-eight minute long orgasm. When Grimaldus gave that speach... I wanted to volunteer for the Imperial Guard.

S Blair : This is why The Emperor gave us days off, popcorn and beer.

Drive Thru Games : Hell yes! I been meaning to ask if you would create something like this. I know what I'm Casting to my TV tonight.

Valerius Wolf : HAVE YOU SAW ME TODAY GRIMALDUS? Yes.. it's impossible not to see you IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO KILL ME AS WELL

parker maisterra : 01000110 01101111 01110010 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01101111 01101101 01101110 01101001 01110011 01110011 01101001 01100001 01101000 00100001

Zack Nemo : This needs a theater release. Everywhere. On everything. And a netflix deal.

Tom Fahey : This is legitimately the most amazing thing I have ever seen on Youtube, ever. I watched the Falcon Heavy launch on Friday and it's not even in the same league (for me - a W40K obsessive - personally. I'm making a personal statement of truth, not a general one - before the trolls jump in). The fact that it's been done by one person, alone, just...I'm lost for words at your raw talent. I could go on about how everything was absolutely perfect, whether it was the art style at the beginning (which I think was absolutely brilliant and just as good as that at the end, only in a different way), the subtle movements of the characters that conveyed the kind of personality, character and emotion that other 40K visual depictions NEVER manage; the uncanny, meticulous attention to detail in the characters, armour, vehicles, buildings, rooms and landscape; the balanced, carefully picked music and sound effects that made it feel every bit as professional as Hollywood blockbusters, except without the hundred million dollar budget. You even managed to overcome the cardinal sin of pretty much every depiction of Orks I've witnessed, where they take the dark comedic relief aspect to them and keep running with it till they're reduced to big, stupid, green, angry clowns, rather than the feral, crude but cunning, savage beasts you authentically depicted them as. Honestly, I don't think I've even finished comprehending all the things in this that have just blown me away and I could probably spend hours attempting to do so, so I'll summarise it with this: You've taken a world that I spent hours, days, weeks, months and years, reading and imagining when I was younger and made it that bit more tangible and real in a way none of the other games/machinima have ever come close to. Thank you.

Daimon X : HELSREACH: The Movie Vol 1. Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Drokk yeah!

Hypno-Thorax : Well... This is a pleasant surprise.

EmoDuck13 : This randomly came up as a recommended video. Probably the closest thing to a miracle I've ever experienced.

SirSkidPlank : This is what YouTube was made for, original content. They are few channels that make stuff like this anymore. Keep up the good work.

Primarch Roboute Guilliman : Thanks Richard! You and Aaron DB are better than Hollywood! <3

Tahkos : By the Emperor it's beautiful

SerMalifact : Games Workshop NEEDS to hire you

Jacob Upon the Stone : I am a 40k fan. I'm also a veteran. Please continue your work. It is profound and inspires me even though it is fiction. In fiction is an echo of truth. Fiction is often inspiring in it's truth. I know I'm bieng cryptic. But please. Keep it up.

76HabeasCorpus : Man, 40k fans have been screaming for this kind of thing for years and finally we get a taste. Truly an amazing job and I can't wait to see what's in store with the rest of this series. Bravo Sir, Bravo.

DethKnightKrieg : Thank you Richard. You are doing the emperors work.

Aidan Bayliss : This is truly one of the best warhammer 40K series ever produced thankyou so much for your time and effort it is greatly appreciated

paaatreeeck : I think Clint Eastwood could pull of the Role of Commissar Yarrick, couldn't really imagine anyone else

ottis whit : This is way better than that tripe I payed for called Ultramarines

RafterMan : I have read on many 40k forums that a 40k movie or series would not be great unless told from a humans point of view. I think what we have here, what you have made is a testament that not only are they wrong but also that they do not care for the universe as much as you have Richard Boylan. What you have made is a true work of art, this not only showcases 40k as a universe ripe for the mainstream but as a universe that deserves to expand beyond the obscure market of miniature table top gaming. You have also shown that story telling for a 40k series/movie is as easy as animating scenes from the books. I believe that 40k should get recognition from the mainstream, it should get the Netflix series treatment and I also believe that this here clears any doubt in the minds of the fans and of potential sponsors for such a thing. Also wouldn't hurt for anyone with connections to Netflix/etc to forward this to them.

Max Hentai : Just awesome. Thanks man for doing this.

terrorkind : Hands down: i would have payed to watch this in a cinema. Incredible work. Absolutely gorgeous.

Giant Dad : I only have one "gripe" with your series (or the latest episode at that) I loved the "drawn" artstyle and missed it from Episode X, however I like that you returned to black and white, I feel like it fits the series better. However I think that it is positive that you are experimenting with the art styles and it shows that you get more and more experienced with the editing :)

Ryan Smay : If Games Workshop actually made movies or shows, and they were as good as this, I would be broke.

TheDeceptiveMoss : is it wrong for a man to love an animation more then he loves the emperor?

Lord Surge : This is by far the best 40K film ive ever watched, everything was perfect, even watching the animation evolve from start to finish makes me wish some director would grow a pair and create something this amazing in live action. My hat goes of to you for this great piece of work. I was blown away, during the moment the Astartes knelt before the dying soldier, and she looked up at him, almost like she was thinking how fortunate she was to look apun one of the emperors angels, before she died.

ELGlorto01 : T H E B E S T W H 4 0 K M O V I E E V E R ! ! ! ! ! ! ! You managed to capture the ambience of the wh40k universe perfectly. The art is infinitely awesome and original in my opinion. Whatever You do...keep doing it man!

Rylan Woodrow : Man, there's so much to love in this! One of my favorite artistic nods is at 23:31, when the servo skull floats over the massive imperial aquila in the background, briefly giving the impression of the Space Marine imperialis. While everything about this series is amazing, it's those sorts of loving details that really uplift it into something magical!

The Last Knight : "This is a magnetic field stabilizer housing."--- "What does it do?" ----"It houses the stabilizers for a magnetic field generator." ----Rolls eyes.

kevin noonan : This series has made me buy so many models...

Imperial Guardsman : By the Emperor.I can not say more to you my friend.You have made the absolute best of 40k videos.May the Emperor bless you and your work.
