If they ever make a film (unlikely in the extreme), it simply has to be based on the Eisenhorn trilogy.

If there was a 40k movie I would wet myself, but only if it was good. I don't want no cheesy fan flick, but an epic. Think Peter Jackson films. As for plot, I have no idea, just make sure every race gets screentime. Perhaps the introductions showing battlefronts across the galaxy, so even the armies not mentioned in the film get some CGI warfare.

They could do one based on the Horus Heresy easily... Afterall, it is one of the biggest events to of happened in the 40k background. Although Eisenhorn would be a good movie too

As for each army getting screen time would be impractical in the extreme, as there aren't many times when all the races are included, and the story would suffer trying to be a reason why all would be fighting. Although it is a valid point, I'm just saying putting them into one movie would be a bit extreme, but in a series of inter-connected ones would be a good idea

I was going to point that out... but.......


Personally, I would LOVE to see a 40k movie, not only does it have the potential to be one of the BEST films of the year if not decade if it were made, but it also provides non-40k players an insite into, not the game, but the fluff of the game. And it would explain how some of us got into the game, and possibly provide a few new players(sure, they'd just be playing the armies that they saw in the movie, but it would be a shot)

My gaming group agrees that it should be the Horus Heresy (well, except one guy who wants some IG stories told).


I would love to see the Alpha Legion in all of their tactical glory.

When I asked for all races I didn't mean for them to all be major pratagonists, as that is impractical. Many movies have an 'introduction' with a narrator and some scenes. I suggested them create such a sequence, giving us views of battlefronts across different worlds, with an omnious voice describing the current situation in the 41st Millenium (There is only war... etc. etc.). Then the story can begin, about Inqusitors, or Space Marines, or whatever. :P
