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.

More! More!

Loved it. Wish there were more gags unrelated to the Boreale speech. Love your thunderhawk, and the humorous take on deep-striking. I'm a huge Warhammer 40k fan who has played every 40k RTS produced by THQ/Relic. Many more flash spoofs of the universe would be welcome. How about choosing an Imperial Guard comissar ( pre-Soulstorm ): they have a fantastic voice actor. Keep it up.

The Commissar voice actor is pretty good, I agree. I'd just need a nice package of audio wrapped up, like Boreale's goofy ass speech. I'm a huge Warhams fan myself, and it's great to know a fellow fan enjoyed my Flash, even if it was done to mock Boreale's terrible voice acting.

Thanks for watching!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

funny thing

They actually talk like that with all of the background fluff they ever put out for warhammer. All righteous fury and such, granted the voice actor for this could have been better...

Battosai810 responds:

Trust me, I know. I'm an avid Warhams player myself. A lot of the things Boreale says would sound awesome with a good voice actor. However, that was clearly not the case when recording dialogue for Soulstorm. Thanks for watching.

Hell that game kicks ass! You made a nice parody out of it. Good job.

But what scene was that supposed to be? I can't quite remember..

Battosai810 responds:

It's the speech that the Space Marine commander Boreale makes before his base gets assaulted in the campaign. It's a monumentally awful part of Soulstorm.
