It's a good time to be a Warhammer fan right now. In a recent Warhammer Community post, a whole bunch of new animations based on the franchise were revealed, as well as two new shows that we've never heard of before. The animation most focused-on is going by the title The Exodite, but will primarily focus on The T'au Empire.
Warhammer Astartes Becomes Official As Lead Of New Warhammer Shows
In the latest update from Warhammer Community, no less than 4 brand-new animations were revealed, as well as a brief teaser for 2 new shows to go along with the other shows we already knew about. The new animations are primarily works started by fans, including the fan-favorite Astartes animation by artist Syama Pedersen. The Warhammer animation team will be working with Pedersen to turn Astartes into an official Warhammer project. The other 3 new animations follow a similar trajectory.
The Exodite by Lost Legion Studios, Primaris: The Last Templar by PaxelArt, and Iron Within by Codex Film are all projects fronted by outside studios that are now becoming official Warhammer products. While not much is known about the content of any of these animations, we do know that Primaris: The Last Templar is going to be a series, rather than a one-off. We also have a teaser trailer for The Exodite, but other than that the contents are surrounded by mystery.
What is clear is that there are going to be even more Warhammer-based media on the way. Towards the end of the post, even more collaborations were alluded to, and two full shows were even hinted at, albeit with a total lack of concrete information. We'll just have to wait and see what's coming for now.
