After being disappointed with how Explode Harder was received here on Newgrounds, I made this over the course of a few hours. I'm not expecting anything great; it's just something I threw together for fellow Warhammer 40k fans.

For those wondering, this is based on one of the worst voice acting performances it has ever been my pleasure to laugh at. In Warhammer 40,000, Dawn of War: Soulstorm, the Space Marine commander has this atrocious voice actor. I ripped the audio from his scene in the game and put it to appropriately crude animation. This is also somewhat inspired by ZekeySpaceLizard's Mega Awesome series more than Egoraptor's actual Awesome animations.

If you have played Soulstorm, you know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, hope you enjoy this. It's stupid, it's silly, and that's why I made it. Once in a while it's okay for a good author to make a little spam.

I respond to all reviews. Especially the bad ones.
PS: Add to Awesome collection if you care to.

Pretty good

A humorous twist on the campaign. Keep up the good work.

Wird...Oh yes...In fact it was funny too... I would like to see better animation while the commander is talking (his mouth was like lightspeed or semething) and of course the legs (a little better drawing). All in all, I love Warhammer and I loved this one. Good score so far...Let´s make it grow :D Thx for some fun!!!

Battosai810 responds:

Well, the art and animation are purposely pretty terrible, whether it's the lazy lip syncing (that's an understatement) or the 2 frame animation stick legs.
Anyway, glad you liked it :)


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


it was... ok it was wierd. I actually play the 40k miniatures game and have played all the DoW games (and yes I know I'm complete nutcase) the art was indeed crude and I really am not a fan of n00b writing. Overall though it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Battosai810 responds:

Don't worry, you're not a nutcase. I've played all the DoW games and I play tabletop too. I'm working on my 4th army for god's sakes.

What would you qualify as n00b writing? The short snippets of text, or the actual dialogue and voice acting? If it's the latter, that's purely the fault of Boreale's atrocious voice actor, and that's Iron Lore Entertainment's fault for hiring him.

ummmmmm, this was ok i guess, the story was decent, anamation was bad. just a suggestion for next time, work harder on the flash and if you do tags again make sure they're on screen long enough for the viewer to read

Battosai810 responds:

Yet another reviewer who completely missed the point. Please read the description before reviewing.
As for the "tags" those were only to be onscreen for as long as the words they were making fun of were onscreen. Just for added emphasis, really, and it's not like the words were hard to hear.

I dunno. Felt like leaving you a review bro. Lovely to see something outside the SRM universe for once!

P.S.; Needs moar Necrons.


Battosai810 responds:

Always good to hear from you!

It gets a little constricting working with SRM 24/7, and if you've noticed most of my flashes this year haven't been SRM centric. It's nice to break free once in a while and make things like this and Milk and OJ.

Hey, at least I included Necrons, even if they were just the robot cat sprite from Hitler's Strawberries! Thanks for the review man :)
