Warhammer Plus: DEATHS HAND (Hammer & Bolter)

Games Workshop’s new service WARHAMMER PLUS has officially launched! Im incredibly happy to finally announce my latest television projects and my original scores for both ANGELS OF DEATH, as well as the Warhammer anthology series HAMMER & BOLTER.

DEATHS HAND was the first episode that I scored for Hammer & Bolter, and in many ways it set the tone for the series as a whole. Dark, mysterious, sometimes unsettled, paired with great action sequences!

The inaugural episode features a unique tale of an Inquisitor who is obsessed with the Imperial Tarot in an attempt to see the future, and he doesn’t like the results he keeps receiving. Can a man cheat death? Can he change the likely future? When an old friend arrives he finds himself facing uncertainty- who’s dangerous? who isn’t? what is the threat that he can’t see or even anticipate?

This episode has fantastic twists and turns set against the backdrop of an evocative atmospheric setting. It was immensely fun to score this one!

On a related side note, all of the amazing artwork shown in this episode was based off of a limited set of cards that the great John Blanche had illustrated years ago. I happen to own a set of these limited decks, which made scoring this episode all the more fun.
