Since the trailer dropped in June of 2021, fans of the Warhammer universe have been patiently (ok not at ALL patiently) waiting for the debut of the stunning production of the Fratres fan-film to complete. It isn’t often that we are given a glimpse into the goings-on of the 30k storyline, and this week we’re finally here celebrating the release of Fratres- a Warhammer 30k Live Action Fan Film!

The Truth Behind the Cosplay

While Warhammer lore is rich and well represented through minis, playbooks, cosplays and more, it isn’t often we get to peak into the goings-on of the Warhammer 30k storylines. Creating a cosplay is time and skill-intensive enough as it is, but to combine that with video production to create a fan-film is an entirely different beast. The production crew of the Fratres fan-film have dedicated months of their lives (if not years) into lovingly creating a gorgeous adaptation of Dark Angel lore that any Warhammer fan can be proud of. One week ago, the fan film was finally dropped live on YouTube for audiences to enjoy.

The story tells of two brothers of the Dark Angels, following them from childhood through to their service to the Dark Angels themselves. The film is well worth the anticipation, bringing characters to life in a cinematic journey of incredibly high caliber. Was this produced in Hollywood with a budget of millions? No. It was created with loving attention to detail from fans dedicated to the cause, and it is worth every moment.

It’s really exciting as a cosplay writer to see a project of this depth come to fruition. Not only does it promote the health of the cosplay genre, but it ties together cosplay and the Warhammer universe. Both require an insane attention to detail and more money than Midas to properly master, and it’s SO worthwhile to see this film completed. We hope you enjoy this Warhammer 30k Fratres Live Action Fan Film Feature!
