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!!!!

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

Gianni Pinotto : good idea

Damien Casoni : I'm just discovering this fantastic work today. Can someone please tell me why the Adeptus Mechanicus has to be convinced to go to war with the armie?! I didn't get this part. I'm (kind of) new to this universe and English isn't my first language too so I think I miss something here.

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!

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

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

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

WarGamerGirl : This was Amazing!  Great job =)

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.

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

Tahkos : By the Emperor it's beautiful

LordMatt48 : Better than Last Jedi

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

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.

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

The Pilgrimz Project : This is superb, Bravo Sir. The Emperor smiles upon you.

AtticWarrior1994 : Why does Helbrect sound like he's Space Waluigi?

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 :)

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!

erik larson : yes, an outstanding yes

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.

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!!

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!

SerMalifact : Games Workshop NEEDS to hire you

jaylaw83 : F*****G AWESOME!!!

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

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

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.

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

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.

Sailing Waffle : You are doing the entire book 🤔

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.

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

Cro martini : Bless you Richard. You are a real saint

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.

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!

James Garratt : By the god emperor this is intense ! And most importantly in 40k universe the is the average tuesday across a hundred worlds... And that is why 40k is so great

ABorder Prince Warhammer Lore : Fantastic work man keep it up I wish I was as gifted :) pure imperial glory

Robert Ruby : again greatest thing ever...would love to see a space hulk version...

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

Andrew Ziegler : Thank you for putting these together. This entire series has been EPIC.
