Warhammer 40k BARBIE

Girls??! Fighting in the grimdark future of Warhammer 40k?!

I made this thumbnail as a parody of anti-Woke youtube and then discovered there is an entire subculture of dudes who are perpetually enraged about Woke Warhammer.

Oh well, I guess people will figure it out.

I’m making these unedited vids at the moment because I’m working on 2x video game scripts this month, and don’t have the creative energy left over to do anything more involved.

My zeitgeist antenna are also starting to tingle at the mention of Warhammer. It’s not just having Henry Cavill as a fanboy. Warhammer has been lurking just outside mainstream consciousness for decades now, and I have a feeling it might be about to get a lot more attention.

Thoughts on why in this vid.

Once the fanboys see Mattel’s new Warhammer 40k BARBIEs I’m guessing female space marines will suddenly be lore actually.
