Default Some new Rumors. Planetstrike, Scenario Book, and DoW II-like movie??

From BoLS on LA gamesday:

Quote:
LA Gamesday has come and gone, and the following tidbits have dribbled out. I'm sure there will be more to follow throughout the day:

Planetstrike
Phil Kelly is working on this supplement that has been rumored since last year. ~There are no timelines on it, but earlier rumors placed it sometime in 2009.

Plastic Valkyrie
This long rumored kit is still said to be a possibility, but not definite. Phil kelley said that GW has the technical know-how to produce the kit, and that there is simply a business case to be made for putting it into production. ~Earlier rumors had placed the Plastic Valkyrie alongside Plastic Stormtroopers as part of the upcoming IG release schedule.

Scenario Book
With the dearth of mission vairey inthe 5th Edition book, this one seems like a no brainer. GW is considerering a scenario book with additional missions and possibly a campaign system. No production work has begun. ~This is a very old rumor that has reared it head again after many months of silence.


40k Movie
Black Library in response to an audience question replied (paraphrasing): "Well, hypothetically, there could maybe be a direct to DVD release of some kind of CGI movie with Ultramarines next year. Maybe." The quality of said effort was described as being on the same level as the Dawn of War II cutscenes. Essentially the Black Library presenter made clear that something is in the works, while issueing no guarantees as to whether it would ever be finished, or released, much less an actual timeline.

~That is a lot of good stuff in there guys, have at it. I'm not going to jump up and down yet in regards to a 40k movie. We have all seen these efforts come and go inthe past, but I'm happy GW is still pursuing the overall concept.
Some of this stuff I'm taking with a bit (or handful) of salt, but sounds nice.

Yeah, the movie would just be funny.

I had heard some where that there was going to be a Horus Heresy film. But if there was GW woould go bankrupt. Just like they almost did with Lord of The Rings.

A Horus Heresy film series, done right, would be the lightning strike to make the company's profits soar.

A Horus Heresy film series, done wrong, would be the death of Games Workshop and annihilate everything they and we hold dear.

So, what you're saying Circus, is...

Let Peter Jackson handle it?

Or Lucas. It'd be destined to be successful with Lucas at the helm. Not necessarily *good*, but successful.

Peter Jackson for the good, yeah.

And whose voice talent would we want in it?

I want Tom Baker and Brian Blessed back voicing Space Marines. Best part of Fire Warrior by far.

I was at gmesday but id not get any new rumors. Wow planetsrike is sitll alive. a secnario oboks seems really intersting. I kind of wnat it. Seeing as we only really have two balanced misisons and three deployment types. I think they may decide to put kill team in the secnarios book which has been rumored to come out.

I like the Emperor played by Patrick Stewart, although the idea that he would have the same voice as Captain Picard is somehow creepy.

Any idea who the Marines might be fighting?
