Attention Wargamers! In a last-ditch effort to raise some more funds, we've gone crazy and slashed the prices on all of our hobby-related perks! So contribute to the greatest Wargaming Doc that will ever be made, and get some sweet gaming swag in return!



Way back in early 2011, DAVID HIATT directed a 17 minute student documentary, THE HAMMERS OF WAR. This documentary (see below) focused on TERI, NATHAN, and KYLE - three extremely dedicated Warhammer 40K hobbyists - as they executed a large-scale 40K tournament in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This documentary went on to receive an overwhelming amount of praise from the local Warhammer community, because of its humanistic and respectful representation of Warhammer players.





Skip forward over two years to today. With the full support of Teri, Nathan and Kyle - the stars of the original HAMMERS OF WAR- as well as the good folks at IMAGINARY WARS, THE JADED GAMERCAST and SCREAMING HERETIC PODCAST, now is the perfect time to make a feature length documentary!

THE LOVE OF WAR will take the same approach as HAMMERS OF WAR, but on a much larger scale. We see the passion and dedication players have for this game, and we can't wait to share it with the world!

Which brings us to our IndieGogo campaign. We are currently seeking funding for our feature-length documentary, THE LOVE OF WAR. With your support, we will have the resources we need to make the best feature-length Warhammer documentary ever.

We need your help to complete this project. Please take a moment to look at our IndieGogo campaign page. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated, and you'll get some sweet rewards in return. It's a win-win for everyone.

We are tremendously grateful and humbled by your support. Thank you!


We are hoping to raise $30,000 in order to produce the film. Shooting is expected to take place over 9 months to a year. As such, we need to have access to gear at a moments notice. All of the money raised will go to purchasing better camera gear and covering travel costs.

So take a look at our perks, find one you like and buy it. We can't tell you how much we appreciate your contributions!



We understand that not everyone is going to be able to contribute to the campaign, but if you think our movie is a cool idea, we would be extremely appreciative if you share the link to our campaign on your Facebook or Twitter, or any other social media site. We need word of mouth almost as much as we need money!





We've recieved an overwhelming amount of support from several Wargaming Titans, and we can't even begin to tell them how grateful we are. We'd love to thank these guys for everything they've done and continue to do for us:
