Default Movie ideas :)

Well with the onset of the new "Ultramarines" movie I got thinking about what kind of movies they could actually make aswell. Based on COUNTLESS fluff and many stories I have compiled a list of what movies they could make based of stories and history of 40K:

A) Horus Heresy (make a trilogy, also most obvious choice)
B) After Math of the Horus Heresy (Marine Legions split into chapters and age of Imperium Begins)
C) Battles of Armageddon (any 3, personally first one maybe the best :P go Grey Knights)
D) Attack and Destruction of Prospero (Space Wolves vs Thousand Sons)
E) Fall of Medusa (Might be fun)
F) 13th Black Crusade. (That would be a long saga)
G) Battle for Macragge (if the ultramarine movie doesn't do it already)
H) Battle for New Rynn's world (cause I love Crimson Fists :P )
I) Battle against the Volskani Cataphracts (Creed leads Cadian 8th to victory just before black crusade)
J) Age of Apostasy (Maybe trilogy aswell)
K) Nimbosa Crusade (good Black templar and tau time)
L) Iron Cage incident (Imperial fists vs Iron Warriors)
M) Fall of Gryphonne IV (good tyranid movie there)
N) Fall of the Astral Claws (You know, the marines who plowed their barge into the necron world engine and sacrificed the entire chapter or 99.99% of it :P)
O) Story about Commissar Yarrick ( haha watching shoot his own men as much as killing orks).
P) When Karn Becomes the Betrayer ( When he fights the emperors children and gets Aulma'd off with his own men and burns them to death)
Q) When the Eldar Craft World "Alaitoic" gets invaded by the tyranids.
R) Sister of Battle story (Maybe how a lowly girl becomes warrior, hero, saint, martyr)
S) The Gothic War.
T) When Commander Farsight goes renegade. (maybe have shadowsun chasing him haha)
U) Brother Captain Stern hunts for his daemon Arch-Nemesis.
V) Siege of Vraks
W) The Damnos Incident, Necron vs Ultramarines (the one where Tigurius and Sicarius took part in, and they evacuated the city before it finally fell to necrons)
X) DeathWatch movie (could be pretty snazzy that one )
Y) Istvaan IV Drop site Massacre (just have a movie on this event and subsequent after math) .
Z) Time of Ending

Just for laughs: Just a big y'xa'uk off war that is the 41st Millenium :P

That's called the Damnos Incident.

Funny that that you've focused on SM vs Zenos/heretic for all those suggestions but *sigh* it is most liekly what GW would do.

But this...

I'd totally see in the cinema, even if I had to book a week off from work to see it.

Well not all are SM vs someone else. But ultimately SM are GW's main playing card to get everyone into the realm of 40k because they the Iconic Protagonists (or antagonists in other peoples view, and even neither!) of the universe in the story that is the 41st Millenium.

I think Nids Invading Iyanden would be awesome. It has everything that works, big ugly aliens, heroes that try their hardest and are loosing, only to be saved by the sacrifice of the abandoned hero. It works well for absic storyline.

But horus heresy would probably be the best, or maybe a love story between an ork and a gretchin, and how their love can never be.....

Or a movie about the blood angels, but make them more vampiric, ya know sparkly and shit.... Wait those aren't vampires, their douchebags!

Actually, the codex said Yarrick DIDN'T shoot anybody, because he was so inspirational to other men.

Id like to start at the beggining. The Old Ones vs the Necrontyr, the coming of the C'tan and leading to the War in Heaven.

Maybe base a movie on Gaunt's Ghosts since some of those novels are amazing, also could do something about WFB since The Time of Legends novels are also very interesting and I think a film based around those could be great viewing too.
