Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine contains the melee Chainsword, Power Axe, and Thunder Hammer from the beloved tabletop game Warhammer 40,000, and the Space Marines in that game are known for carrying the iconic Chainswords. These are swords with chainsaws on them, naturally, and they are weapons so dangerous that even the replicas can hurt you. In fact, it's doubtful that Marcus Fenix would be a carrying a chainsaw-enabled Lancer if it wasn't for Warhammer.
THQ has released three new melee videos highlighting these awesome weapons, and showing you why a Space Marine needs to use every tool at his disposal to dish out hot death to Orks and Chaos alike. Check out the Chainsword video above, and then head on beyond the break to take a look at the Power Axe and the Thunder Hammer. The Chainsword might look awesome, but personally I'd just like to airbrush "Thunder Hammer" on the side of an AMC van and drive around town playing a lot of Whitesnake on the sound system.
