It is always interesting to find a random cross section between our hobby and the larger world. If you are a child of the 80s or 90s you should remember a band called Megadeth, with its lead singer Dave Mustaine, a guy who was kicked out of Metallica for being too crazy. Well as it turns out, Megadeth hasn’t gone anywhere and still produces new albums to this day. With new music comes music videos and a few recent ones have a odd intersection with Warhammer 40k.

The music videos are off Megadeth’s latest album Dystopia are animated/cel-shaded and tell some post-apocalyptic story. The videos are filled with typical teenage angst, but what makes them relevant is the main villain is none other than Phil Kelly, senior designer for Games Workshop. The guy who made the videos is a good friend of Phil and put him in the videos.

Here take a look!

Phil isn’t new toacting or video production being featured in his brothers videos years ago.

Anyway, it is pretty cool no matter what to be in a heavy metal band’s music videos, and a band close to the stereotypical idea of what a Warhammer player would listen to.
