THQ has released a copy of its E3 2004 trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, an ambitious PC RTS game currently under development at Relic Entertainment, a studio the Nickelodeon-loving publisher recently purchased.

The 40MB QuickTime format movie is available right now from Eurofiles, and features about a minute of in-game footage, showing off the gloriously detailed unit visuals and various clashes in battle.

If you thought the Total War games chucked around some serious visuals, just wait until you get your beard around this little lot - space marines turning over and cocking their guns, Orks banging their weapons on the ground, and vast armies and dreadnoughts stampeding towards one another.

Dawn of War should be out before the end of the year - in October in fact, according to THQ's press site.
