40K: Aborted 40K Flash Game

Several years ago, as I was getting back into Warhammer 40,000 after an extended hiatus, I encountered a flash-animated battle report that I thought was so cool - I just had to try doing something like it.

As I began playing around with Flash and learning more about it, I thought 'Why stop at a battle report? Why not just make a game?' So I started working on a 40k Flash game during the abundance of downtime I had at my job at the time. The story was about a Dark Eldar Talos that had been captured and deactivated by Space Marines, only to be remotely reactivated by a Haemonculus to fight its way past the Marines and even, due to classic True Kin backstabbing, Dark Eldar forces.

I didn't get too far into it before I changed jobs twice within two or three years and could no longer focus on it. I still think about it from time-to-time.

So, having dug it up and dusted it off, here are the animations for the Talos:

As you can see, I never quite perfected getting the shooting and assault animations to run at the last position & heading of the figure.

I also have animations for a Dark Eldar Warrior w/Splinter Rifle, Tactical Space Marine w/Bolter, and a Space Marine Sergeant w/Bolt Pistol and Chainsword - maybe I'll put them up, provided anyone is interested in seeing them.


  1. um, I'm interested in seeing them! The animations look great, it's a shame you never finished the game!

  2. Thanks! I'll try to get them posted when things slow down a bit.

    Maybe someday I'll come back to the game as a whole - but despite what progress was made, there is still a lot of unexplored territory to the process (mainly ActionScript-related).

  3. The animations is cool but you have to finish the game buddy !!!

  4. Part of the reason I decided to post it was as a sort of reminder to myself. Only time (or the lack thereof) will tell if I can make something of it.

    Thanks for reading!

  5. IT SO COOOOOOOOL i will think :O}of it

    To improve your mental game, question resolution!
