Let's say Games Workshop ignores their Jewish heritage for a while and actually funds a major motion picture.We're not talking blockbuster here, but it's still big enough to warrant coming to a theater near you.What would you like to see most? Not even army-wise, but as a plot? Actors and actresses that would fit the roles? Would you go below your country's equivalent of an 'R' (18+) to reach a wider audience and bring in more money to GW?I personally would like to see a story about a powerful psyker hiding out in the underhive of a large spire, trying to eek out a living with his fleshshaping, acting as a healer to keep the mob from killing him.Then a chaos cult springs up and starts making sacrifices, drawing more of the Warp's ire to the planet. Now the locals think he's in league with the heretics, the Adeptus Arbites want him dead even more, and the cultists want to use him as a sacrifice to open a tear in reality, allowing Chaos Undivided to storm through.It'd focus for a long time on how horrible the 40K verse was. Arbite raid kills his parents and goes overboard finding him, he pretty much lived in the sewers his entire life to avoid capture, demons claw at his mind constantly, the works.And then the Eldar show up to make sure he doesn't get killed by the everything that wants him dead. So the Imperium calls down the guard to deal with the Eldar. Then Chaos deamons, pouring out from the underhive, warrant the Space Marines, and it all spirals out of control as everyone wants to find this unlucky psyker, and he just wants to not to die.Just another day when you're Epsilon level.>picture unrelated if we're talking about good movies
I would watch that.Question is, though:would the GRIMDARK be over-the-top to comedic proportions? Or would it actually try to be depressing?
>>20031654So, Damnatus, but a few million dollars behind it?
Sisters of battle
>ignore jewish heritage>funds motion picture.........That's not just antisemitic, but it's also paradoxical.
>>20031654Seconded. Though nobody would like it. Most people don't appreciate a story where the protagonists fail miserably and die, resulting in the population of an entire world being wiped out.40k is only done properly when there's no good guys. Most people don't take morally ambiguous films seriously if they're wearing the trappings of adolescent sci-fi wank. If you want to do silly 40k then you'll end up with something like Heavy Metal, and that's a cult film at best. It's just not going to work.
>>20031666Oh, I'd be depressing as hell. It makes the "HELL YEAH" moments shine all the brighter.And of COURSE he helps save the hive majorly and isn't executed, though he is finally taken to be sanctioned. So it ends with a little upshot.Most of the movie involves him bleeding from the eyes and being hunted down Salem style, though. Chaos cults and Imperial guard use human wave tactics run rampant.I even had a though that when an Eldar warp-spider jumps near him to try to keep him alive, they don't exit the warp for a good while while the Warlock has an OH SHIT moment.Then he phases in at the destination, screaming blood murder with about a 1/4 of an Eldar hanging on to him.
A mockumentary about some minor conflict with IG involved, you know - for propaganda purposes. Then out of nowhere grey knights/eldar/chaos, and they want the crew dead. Handheld filming, shaky camera and cheap jump scares.
>>20031699Don't the kikes pretty much own Hollywood?
Thete is nothing original or compelling in 40k, you can't make a motion picture that isnt 85 minutes of visual fan service. It would be about as quality as john you are the demons then john was the demons.
>>20031730Thank you for outright stating what the guy you're quoting was implying.>>20031742Or if you do anything original with the material anyone uninitiated in the audience will be totally lost. And the fans will shit themselves over it being unfaithful.
Ciaphais Cain is the best option for a big league movie. Plenty of normalfag appeal, not overly depressing, large pre-established fanbase.Get Steve Buscemi to pay Jurgen.
If they ever wanted to expand their public by making a movie, they would have to use what most popular about them: Space Marines. Probably vs Chaos Space Marines. Ultramarines would be the stars since they seem to be the least offensive (kinda good roman guys) vs Black Legion (typical bad guys and the more they mention Chaos Gods the better).Maybe some GI Joeish Guardsmen, kind of like the army was in the transformers movies. No Sisters since religion and fanaticism are offensive. Eldars only if they're more like Lord of the Rings Elves while Dark Eldars get more generic "dark reflection" style with no mention of their depravities beyond the fact they love evil and look like Sauron.No Tau unless they team with Ultramarines as the good guys and there are no mention of them being kind of communists.No Tyranids until the sequel where they work like Aliens.Necrons are man sized Egyptian Decepticons.Orks are comic relief that enjoy fighting but don't kill people, mostly busy with physical comedy in their scene a'la Three Stooges.Add Michael Bay as a director and PG 13 rating, receive millions of dollars.
>>20031742You mean like the Doom movie?
>>20031644http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TGm9o37BNjM&noredirect=1Replace black people with orcs and white people with humans. No other changes are needed.
>>20031789I don't know why I didn't think of that! A movie with Cain, I definitely would watch. The opening narration could pretty much tell you what the setting's like or what commissars here do. Simon Pegg would make a cool Jurgen. Broklaw could be Kevin McKidd. Hmmm, an actress for Amberley Veil.
I want a shitton of slaughter.Make it a movie about a bunch of Orks fucking shit up and being hilarious and over-the-top.This will bring money and fans, leading to possible sequels with different races as focus.
>>20031644I don't think Jewish means what you think it means.
>>20031789Actually, this. It could definitely work as a mostly serious 40k film. Not outright absurd, but with enough haminess to stop it from taking itself too seriously.
>>20031666It actually depends, Satan.If they're fighting Orks (and maybe tyranids) then yes. If not, no.
>>20031821Simon Pegg seems too neat to be Jurgen. Sean Pertwee definitely needs to be in a 40k movie, however - incidentally, he voiced the protagonist of the Ultramarines movie, but he's leagues better in the flesh and perfect for the 40k atmosphere. I'd advise seeing the Mutant Chronicles movie just for him, even if the movie itself is terrible schlock.
>>20031644Wouldn't the obvious idea be an Inquisitor movie?A rookie Inquisitor ends up in the deep end, when his Master gets kill while investigating a Chaos conspiracy. He has to stay alive, clear his name, and STILL save the day, while assembling his warband - Including a Bounty Hunter, a hard-as-nails Arbites, a Rogue Psyker and an Astropath. The show pretty much writes itself.
Just take a bunch of action movie actors and let them slaughter their way through two hours of action.Basically, the Expendables. (I'm talking about premise, not quality. Haven't seen the movie)They could be of any faction. They could be a bunch of marines or a band of Orks or both competing against each other.What I would also like would be scenery porn in form of hive worlds and Titan.s
>>20031874>hard-as-nails ArbitesI just want to thank you for not writing "arbite".
Horus Heresy directed by Peter Jackson
>>20031867What if Pegg's that Valhallan Captain that idolizes Cain? The one Cain goes out of his way to avoid? The one who would be ready to take on a Hive Tyrant with a table leg rather than let Cain down?
>>20031888Trips have never been wiser
>>20031669How about you don't ever mention the rancid hunk of shit that was Damnatus ever again
>>20031880That'd be the approach for a Deathwatch movie. That'd get the fans who wanted xeno-killing in 'Prometheus'.
>>20031816Words cannot express how much I love that movie.
>>20031887I honestly think that we should steer clear of excessive aliens, monsters, daemons, whatever. One Space Marine should be an incredible "HOLY SHIT!" moment, not an entire army of CGI creations re-enacting a heavy metal cover. It'd hurt the budget less, is what I'm saying.
>>2003181210/10 would watch if we get lots of Ork comedy.
>>20031900But the doom movie was bad at fan serviceIt was pretty cool though
I think Ciaphas Cain would be adaptable. Maybe not one of the books but a proper movie script.I think someone like Liam Neeson would do a decent job of Cain Not sure who would do Amberley but Jurgen I would go find the hairiest ugliest looking Russian actor because no one else would fit
It should be accessible, so not to much mixing of races.Actually, avoid stuff like Eldar entirely. It would take way too fucking much exposition to include the Eldar properly and even then the viewers likely wouldn't care.I remember my first time playing Dawn of War. Before I even knew 40k.It felt... Lacking. Like it was a part of something greater but didn't have any content in itself.Now I know that's actually the case, but a 40k movie could run into the same trap.
>>20031903I see what you mean. I'd also like to see an action/comedy starring the IG and Orks, I imagine it to be pretty much Starship Troopers with a 40k skin.
>>20031821Need to think of an actress for Regina as well.And Rakel and definitely Sulla.Maybe even Divas just so they can get as many recurring characters as possible introduced to save time in the sequels
About the Cain movie:Aren't Valhallans basically the Red Army in space?I don't know how well a movie about space soviets would work with most western audiences.
>Ciaphas Cain movieCan't we basically make it Blackadder 40K?
>>20031981Well they are red army in appearance only.Their organization, MO and everything else is closer to American army.>>20031789>Steve buscemi as jurgenI hope you fall into a bin of Lego.
>>20031918 >Liam Neeson as Cain or Gaunt
>>20031903>>20031880These ideas! Put them together!The team get hints of unexpected help (i.e. bad guys killed by weapons too big to be anything man-portable) and we keep hearing references about "an old friend".And in the climax when the warband are getting their asses handed to them, BAM! Killmarine.
OP's idea was good, until the Eldar and everything afterward really fucked the focus of the film. Believe it or not, I think a 40k film could work, but it'd have to be done in such a way that even if 40k didn't exist, the film would stand fine on its own, certainly couldn't plaster the 40k logo over it. That would mean plot and characters first, with setting details helping to build that, rather than being the focus. It would also mean not adapting any of those churned out pieces of literary dribble that fans 40k seem to devour for whatever reason called Black Library.
>>20032005I see Neeson more as Oktar, tho'.
Oh god I'd give my left testical and right eyelid for a Gaunts Ghost movie series with Liam Neeson as Gaunt
>>20032001So it would be Saving Private Ryan but with space Russians instead of the US army and Orks/CSM/Heretics instead of Germans
>>20031644A film about Squats.
>>20032005The idea mainly came from seeing him In the A-Team which makes him a much better fit for gaunt.The guy who did Face in that would be awesome for Cain as well.>>20031888Good idea but Jenit Sulla is a female character sadly, Pegg could do Divas though>>20031880The expendables was actually a decent movie, it was just a very streamlined, little bullshit action movie for guys to watch and get a hardon overIt could with a few changes to the script work as a group of storm troopers being dropped in to take out a planetary governor and need nothing else changed
>>20032032Ditto. Shit would be cash.
I'd prefer a traditional Warhammer movie, over a 40k movie. Some fantasy epic, maybe even Gotrek & Felix. G&F could make a great movie. One of their first stories, where they find the slanesh cult that's been kidnaping children, could easily be stretched out into an hour & a half. Work in a little bit extra back-plot, and it's set up to be the first part of a series. Think about it: A series of movies, one adventure per movie, about these guys going around & saving the day. An undercurrent plot about their two respective long-term objectives and BAM, Hollywood gold.
>>20032060The lady who played Tonks could be Kasteen. The lady who played Brienne of Tarth could be Sulla. And Divas! That's his name! Thanks, neighbor!
>>20032073Get Peter Jackson on the line!If there's anybody who specializes on fantasy films about little people it's him.
>>20032046squats are the lamest thing ever
Here's what we do,A Cain movie but we slaughter the books' storylines.It begins as the first book, Cain is thrown into the two reformed regiments and has to get them cohesive before they arrive. When they land though, it changes over to Caves of Ice except without the necrons (or we could keep them, just might be a bit overwhelming to new people to have orks and necrons). Orks would provide comedic relief by doing stupid thing.Plus we would have that wonderful moment after they land for the first time and Cain over dramatically pretends to have been shot to lure the orks into an ambush by the Valhallans.
>>20032073Guy Ritchie for "Gotrek and Felix".
What about a Rambo III like movie about a Catachan or Raven Guard marine who is sent unto a Tau occupied world to save some high ranking Inquisitor with the help of local resistance.
>>20032073Maybe they could even do a movie where Gotrek finally fucking dies.I like the series but it has dragged on far to long
>Imperial Guard/inquisition based>moral ambiguityGames Workshop would never make a 40k movie focusing on that.The protagonists will be heroic Space Marines, the enemies foul Chaos and Orks. Just like the Ultramarines movie. The uninitiated viewer will see heroes in power armour killing greenskin hordes and spiky evil mareens. Guard will feature in a supporting role as fodder that gets slaughered by Orks/Chaos until Space Marines arrive.
>>20032100Suck Ogryn Dick.
>>20032144We aren't looking at making a porn movie yet.
>>20032141so its going to suck, which is why i hope they never make a (another) movie
>>20032141That's why this is a "what if" thread not a "what will" thread
They made a short movie called Inquisitor in the 90's. Very short run on VHS. It was on Youtube for a while, but Games Workshop took it down again.
>>20032141Huh. If you think they believed in the good guys, the setting wouldn't be so grimderp.
>>20032180Found it. Sorry about the German subtitles. Also, the movie is awful.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6l1AlK5JZ0&feature=plcphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55tZty1ygyk&feature=plcphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEzLboSCC1c&feature=plcp
> Edgar Write / Paul McGuigan> Caphias Cain
>>20032112I find this idea interesting because of subversion potential. As the movie begins, the Tau are portrayed as iron-fisted communists, what with sterilising the humans and all, and the resistance movement wants Freedom, Liberty, and all that Hollywood jazz. Only toward the closing acts, when the audience has felt all "humanity, fuck yeah" at Tau tyrants being butchered, do we get the larger view of the Tau colony society, which is ordered, practical and liveable, all things considered. The 'freedom fighters' are actually more about the freedom to worship the Emperor and go back to a properly feudal and authoritarian social order - which the Rambo character gives them and wholly supports.
>>20032219Wow. Just wow. That's how a twist should be done...
>>20032109> I"ve heard the name, but what has he done lately ? > Google > The Sherlock movies > he did Lock, Stock and Two Smoking BarrelsGuy Ritchie for G&F or Cain.
>>20032219I think the part about the Tau society should be only very minor. I think it would work well if we don't know much about the Imperial society at first and only by the end of the film when the planet gets liberated we get to see that the Imperium is actually not much better then the sterilising Aliens.Something like at the end the Guard moves in and start rallying everybody who is considered a sympathiser. Those people are then all executed, kind of like the scene at the end of the Guard campaign in Soulstorm where you see a pit full of Cultists and more getting executed by firing squads.
>>20032256Gotrek and Felix have this feel to them, sorta Mumbles and One-Two of the Wild Bunch from "Rock'n'Rolla".
>>20032284I know man. But it's actually the Holmes movies that make me think he'd also be good for Cain. The tone of those films, what shifts from passive-cheekiness to breath-holding-tension would be ideal.
>>20032320And if anyone could bring 40k to a wider audience it is him,
>>20032105Which would be great and all till the audience finds out that his entire world crumbles around him and basically 90% of the cast is murdered
>>20032361If it was done well I think there might be more fans than if everything turned out well.That's what I actually liked about Eisenhorn in the first place, his life sort of collapses around him due to him trying to do the best he could for the universe and it isn't just done as a "how shitty and grimdark is this" plot point but as an actual result of his actions.
>>20032333I hear that. Maybe Wright too.
What about the Helsreach novel? It has decent IG units in it, yet the Black Templars are the true heroes. The enemy is Orks and Yarrick the Commissar rips off a power klaw from one of the Orks and uses it to rally the humans once more!It has a really grim outset, but the ending is sort of HUMANITY FUCK YEAH! oh and bigass Titans!
>>20032399I would like it so long as they retconned all the bullshit with grimaldus being a whining bitch for the majority.That's the one thing that ruined the whole book for me.
>>20032386You've got to remember something here buddy: about 90% of people, they're idiots. There are people who honestly believe that dinosaurs never existed, and NASA made up space. People read the Watchmen and go, "why did they kill Rorschach?" They watch JC's "AVATAR," and think it's deep and original. The general public not only thinks that the Twilight books are acceptable litterature for growing minds, but there are in fact grown ass people who think it's enjoyable writing. Have you ever wondered why next to no movies have 'bad ends?' The general pubic defaults to hating a movie if it doesn't have a 'happily ever after,' ending.
I'd like a story of a hive world family that gets thrown out of their home into the lower levels for their debts.What debts? The costs of executing their deserter father.
>>20032409Yeah, I think it would be alright to have him whine until the siege starts, which shouldn't take too long. Basically having Grimaldus state that he knows he will die on Armageddon and being furious when the rest of the chapter leaves him to defend the hive city. After that, he mans the fuck up and starts kicking ass and taking names.
>>20032418That's why I stipulated "if done well"For the most part I think it would do about as well as any movie that isn't the good guys win foreverThose reasons that you listed are why I hate people in general and the media industries which pander to that school of thought
>>20032420>Implying the family wouldn't get executed for being related to a traitor
Of one thing I'm sure: A Warhammer movie(both fantasy and 40K) will be made before Blizzards finishes it's Warcraft movie.
>>20032434> it would do about as well as any movie that isn't the good guys win foreverThose movies don't do well enough for most honest producers to fund them, let alone GW. I'm going ahead and fessing up to never having read an Eisnehorn book, but I'm going off of what I do know: the movie industry. "Bad End" doesn't sell, because most people today haven't experienced enough loss to appreciate endurance.
>>20032437Nah - they're usually fined the costs of the execution and sometimes also feed and uniform.
>>20032418>enjoyable writingBut it is. The passive-agressiveness of the characters is an awesome trainwreck.
>>20032483Okay, let me point this out. You like it ironically, they like it legitimately. They're honestly captivated by the 'drama.'
>>20032494Well, I did like some of the concepts.Then again, I'm a concept fanatic. I like Space Siege because I love the concept, despite the game sucking balls.
>>20032418I'd like to point out that this is all total bullshit.The reason most films are shit isn't because people are idiots, but because producers ASSUME people are.If people don't like happy endings why is Scarface so popular? The Godfather?
>>20032450Well it is a mixed ending.His love interest who is a blank falls into a coma that she doesn't wake up from in the current novels.He loses one of his oldest friends to binding a daemon after it was set loose and then uses another one who betrayed him causing the death of third friend to rebind it as a daemon host.He beats a great evil who may actually have been on the verge of saving the imperium.And his soul is tainted from the knowledge of warpcraft that he learnt in order to protect everything he held dear.He starts off as a rather moderate Puritan psyker I should add.Those of his friends that survive ( around half ) go on to have pretty good endings given 40k and the inquisition.A major theme of the books is that he sacrifices himself in various ways to try and save others but the more he sacrifices the more he realizes he needs to sacrifice because the threat is much greater than he understands.
Antonio Banderas as Pedro Kantor defending Rynn's World against and Ork WAAGH!, with Penelope Cruz in the role of a Sister Hospitalis.
>>20032530If 4chan taught me something, then that humanity is a lot better than you might deduce from seeing the world the normal way.Often it's not that everyone is an idiot but that one guy is an idiot and shines a bad light on everyone else.Like the movie example.Not to mention that mainstream movies are far from being the horrible shit hipsters make it out to be. Many overhyped classics are pointlessly simple bullshit without any logical integrity.
>>20032551>Penelope Cruz in the role of a Sister Hospitalis.I see what's coming... And maybe Banderas as Cortez instead.
>>20032418>>20032450I think people are more intelligent than both you and the movie producers give them credit for.Which is why there are always, without fail, heaps of complaints about movies that have been dumbed down to pander to this supposedly vast majority of idiots.
>>20032530*don't like unhappy endings. Sorry. To atone for my sins I will read the Kaldor Draigo fluff.>>20032558This man is a bro.
What about an adventure movie about a young Space Wolves recruit. The movie could work as mix of the young boy becoming a Marine and your typical Viking movie with lots of drinking, singing and punching. After the boy becomes a proper scout news reaches him that his village was sacked by and unknown force, everybody died except his love interest. The Wolves assume it were bandits or giants beasts but our hero get suspicious and starts looking for clues. In the end he finds out it was done by the Thousand Sons. Nonoe of the older Marines believe him so he goes out on his own to find the 1k Sons warband. This leads him off Fenris and unto a desert planet where the Sorcerer rules over a Cult of Tzeentch. Together with a Salamander he saved earlier from the Sons and his old Mentor (a proper Marine) they fight the Cult and the Sorcerer. In the end the Wolfs triumph and Magnus is pissed once again.
>>20032739Unsurprisingly, this is how it might turn out, inaccuracies and all.
>>20032739And we shall call it "Wolfing of the wolf wolf: The wolfening, the movie, the game."
>>20032750Main Cast:Protagonist: Sam WorthingtonSalamander: Samuel L. JacksonTousand Sons Sorcerer: Christian BaleLove interest: ?Mentor character: Liam NeesonLogan Grimnar: ?Big Cultist & voice of Rubrik Marine: The Rock

>>200327392 problems:1) Space Wolves are not Ultramarines, nor do they want anything to do with the Codex. It could skew views on Space Marines for newcomers, so when the less interesting chapters come along, everyone would whine that GW ruined their own marines.2) The script, based on the latest Space Wolves codes, would be something like this.>Wolf Lord Fang: Pack-brother, how fares your hunt?>Scout Wulf: We honor the great wolves and our Primarch Russ with our wolf pattern attacks, Wolf Lord.>Wolf Lord Fang: And out Longfangs, Pack-brother?>Longfang Fangwolf: They were a good hunt, but our spirits were as strong as the Fenrisian wolves, Wolf Lord Fang. You could say it was easy as rutting with a hive-worlder like a wolf in heat.>Wolf Lord Fang: So would you say the heretics got it...Doggy style?>Assembled Space Wolves: HA HA WOOF WOOF HAH!
>>20032826>implying that would not win it an Oscar for best film writing.Honestly though there isn't as much wolfing the wolf wolf with their actual speech and actions.The novels are a good example of how they act as opposed to how their chapter names everything
>>20032788Ork chieftain: Arnold Schwarzenegger
>>20032826Just have the Mentor or Grimnar tell the recruit that the Wolves are special and different from other Marines. Later Samuel L. Jackson could say something like "You guys fight like beasts! Ever heard of the Codex?" and the Mentor would say something like " We spit on the Codex and the Ultramarines! HAHAHA! We fight the way we want!"
Iron Hands would be a bro chapter to do a movie on.
>>20032873Iron within! Iron Without!Imaright guyz!But in all seriousness GW probably forgot they even exist by now or the confuse them with the Iron Warriors.

The story of Creed. Starting from when he's found as a small child, culminating in the ascension to Lord Castellan of Cadia in the face of the imminent 13th Black Crusade.
>>20031644Something on ArmageddonTo me that's the highest point on 40k
Just do Rynn's world. You'd have to be a complete dumbass to not think Pedro Kantor wasn't the baddest motherfucker that lived and that Termie SL who guarded the tunnels and was cracking jokes. That is Hollywood Gold. Even has that "Oh shit he's not gonna be a dick moment" that makes you root for the Spess Mureens.
>>20032942Could be interesting. Although the humans in the movie will look funny,purple eyes and all.
>>20032890They've a new book in the "Space Marine Battles" series out. Don't know if it's good, though.
>>20032971Reculshiarch Tomasi was a total bro too. Happens during the chapter's founding day. Naw, you get it all. Fuck, Rynn's world was so damn well-written.
>>20032971We already had that >>20032551But we can refine the idea of a Rynn's world movie. But you'd need a lot of Spanish and Mexican actors for that movie.
I like the idea of keeping it relatively low budget by making it similar to the hand-held cam idea mentioned earlier (think Chronicle or Blair Witch Project). But here's how to do it easily: the camera is in a Servo Skull. First scene is an apprentice finishing it, the Skull wirring around, testing etc, for maybe 3 minutes before being given to an interrogator. We follow them on whatever adventure happens to happen. If at all possible make it a trilogy, the first one is pretty straight forward where they have discovered some kind of chaos artifact which they decide must be destroyed/captured. The entire movie is about getting it. On the way they clash with Orks and maybe Eldar trying to keep the artifact out of human hands. Chaos is mentioned vaguely, never specifically talked about, just mentioned as a corrupting influence. No Chaos Space Marines, no Daemons, no traitor guardsmen or anything even makes an appearance. Once the artifact is recovered, study starts, and the Inquisitor forbids anyone coming near for fear of corruption. Everyone, but him.
>>20033006>Implying they'll keep to the fluffSame goes for the guy with the Creed idea. people will be regular eyed.
I vote the third war for Armageddon.Cue intro panning across the alkaline jungles and the ruined plains of the planet, with brief flashbacks to the hordes of Angron and Ghazgull as they are mentioned, War of the Worlds style, setting the history of Armageddon in a five to ten minute flashback.Then start running the main story revolving around the invasion, the fall of the orbital defenses, Yarrick coming from retirement to play the big hero, and then the coming of the space marines. Plenty of space for huge ass battles with gargants and unending hordes of Orks, but focus the film around the perspective of maybe a small handful of characters, who lived long enough to see some of the major shit that went down. Gives you the chance for some personal level heroics when the good Commissar gets involved, or when the guard do their thing, or when the space marines show up and start just destroying the fuck out of the bad man.Or, alternately, same setting, but have the whole film following one of the two deathwatch kill teams that was present during the war.
>>20033022Second movie starts out with a lot of boring paperwork and our young interrogator basically being bored out of his mind because of all the bureaucratic bullshit the chaos artifact brings with it. Finally his Inquisitor takes him with on another adventure, apparently in order to destroy the chaos artifact it must be brought to a certain point in space, if destroyed elsewhere it will release a terrible evil, bla bla bla, we know this kind of story. They fight their way to wherever they need to be through Daemons, Cultists and even Chaos Space Marines (that turn out to be loyalist). The Inquisitor grows secretive and we see him being corrupted. Interrogator helps out, kills Inquisitor, but alas the damage has been done and some rift opened/daemon released, whichever. The Interrogator looks upon the ruin and despair as another Inquisitor takes him into custody for questioning.Third movie is our Interrogator proving his innocence, using the footage on the Servoskull. The Interrogator continues his training but quickly becomes an Inquisitor due to circumstances giving him quite a reputation. Now our Interrogator turned Inquisitor is mopping up the mess any which way he can, which involves ancient forbidden practices. He might deal with the Dark Eldar, regular Eldar, or maybe even Necrons in trying to close the warp portal/banish the daemon. At the end it is revealed the daemon is banished into an artifact and starts whispering to the Inquisitor. For a moment the Inquisitor pauses before placing it down in a tunnel/mine and collapsing the entire thing. He has learned from his master's mistakes.
>>20032931>BjornOnly if it's about his happy end as a Blood Raven.
Bill Murray as Ciaphas CainNick Frost as JurgenAre people not tired of Sig Weaver fighting every alien in existence, or is she just the only recognizable actress to appear in more than one sci-fi movie? She'd make an okay Inquisitor, but it would mean no 'nids allowed.
>>20033038He would be a very very very minor character in that film. Probably just a cameo showing a Dread so that the fans won't complain about missing Dread and non-fans see a cool talking robot in the film and then he gets repainted and sent to the BR.
I just want 10 minutes where Ken Watanabe arrives as a White Scar, raises hell, and leave
>>20033113Not a Mongolian, can't be White Scar.
>>20033037Interesting idea, but I think it can be done just as well without the Skull.
>>20033126>Implying Mongolians look different enough than the Japanese to America
>>20033098>No NidsWhy?Does Sig refuse to star in movies with Alien resembling aliens(damn that sound stupid).
>>20033126you say that like most know the differences between Japanese and Mongolians
>>20033142Fine, if we have a Japanese playing a Mongolian I demand that Jackie Chan be in the same movie as another White Scar.
>>20033103>>20033038The film is a comedy about Commander Vanilla Ice, Thaddeus and their company (who were stranded in the warp by kyras untill he ascended, and by then it was too late to help) and Bjorn.They know the chapter is dangerously undermanned so Gabe sends them on a mission.In order for the new recruits to survive as long as possible, they must get the very best wargear for them to wield from all four corners of the galaxy.By any means possible.Vanilla Ice is the secretly competent comedic bad/stupid boss.Thaddeus is the long suffering second in command who gets shit done.Bjorn is the cranky old bastard mentor.
>>20033152Mongolians= Awesome conquerors on horsesJapanese= Shitty conquerors on boats
>>20033164And they sometimes meet Gorgutz who pities them and allows them to duel for loot.
>>20033164Later they pick up Captain Boreale. Also Bjorn and Thule have a dick waving contest the entire film. Eliphas could be a comedic relief villain, who always tries to stop them yet fails every time.
>>20033171>>20033163http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCtuZ-fDL2EJust change the horses to a motorbike, the samurai armor to a power armor, the Katana to a Polearm and make the Charge Succeed and then you have the perfect White Scar charge
>>20033180If Brian Drummond reprises Gorgutz, I can't imagine enough money that would be enough for me to give themwe now need to decide if the antagonist is Carron who is now a Chaos dreadnought and driven insane by being trapped in a metal box, or if he's just the sidekick to someone else
>>20033201Fuck, it could be an awesome whacky comedy with routine slaughtering of Xenos.That would actually work quite well to emphasize the centuries of experience the Marines have.But at the very end, there's this huge-ass battle where all jokes end and the protagonists become serious. And then you see them shine in their awesomeness.
>>20033215Antagonists: Carron in a metal bawks, Eliphas and his nagging wife Neroth.
>>20033216>>20033201These ideas combined are just awesome.To reflect the games, Bjorn and Thule would go on nigh unstoppable rampages while everyone else just sits back with a beer and watches.Alternatively, Thaddeus and V Ice find a way to constantly abuse the invulnerability gaining charges and troll the fuck out of Eliphas.

>>20033146No, it's an audience thing and bound to be a restriction placed by the exec's in charge. You cannot have an actress who became famous by fighting H.R. Giger aliens star in a completely unrelated movie fighting aliens strongly inspired by H.R. Giger. You're going to confuse the FUCK out of the audience.That would be like having Christian Bale play a billionaire whom doubles as a costumed vigilante, and defends Chicago from a druglord who wears a potato sack over his head. The audience is going to see that and say, "well this was the worst Batman movie ever."But that would be the cost of having an immediately recognizable actress like Sig Weaver play an Inquisitor.
>>20033216Despite their best efforts they get cornered and it seems they will lose the final battle AND SUDDENLY VANCE MOTHERFUCKING STUBBS AND 100 BANEBLADES ARRIVE!
>>20033252>"So that's where they were"Anyway, I think a movie using DoW canon would be the best bet due to being very accessible.
>>20033252All Tactical Genius'd in by the combined might of Eldrad and Creed. (Played by Kyle Gass and Jack Black, respectively.)
>>20033270And then, at the very end, they lose everything because of a classical Eldrad dick move and have to start anew.Gorgutz will put his hand on Vanilla Ice's shoulder and tell him to take it easy.
>>20033252alternatively, after stealing the armoury of 15 different chapters, the other Space Marines form a vigilante group to stop the blood ravens and end up unwittingly saving the day.When the final Metal box went down, they let loose a titanic cheer! the renegade chapter was no more!"Captain! we have found this data slate!""let me see it brother"Dear Brothers, our thanks for getting us out of that little pickle, and our most heartfelt thanks for your generous donation of all your battle barges."… BLOODY MAGPIES!!!!"then cut to VI/Thaddeus' grins and roll credits

>>20033291Turns out it was all really a move being shot from 1970.>Directed by M. Night Shyamalan
>>20033312Directed by Joss Whedon.But don't allow him to change any of the visuals. His removal of the triangle from the Iron Man suit on the grounds that it "looks like ass" shows that he's got no fucking clue about visual design.
>>20033307I wonder if they would keep the Salamanders black or if they'd change that?
A movie about Orks being Orks. Make it about a Warboss gettin the WAAAGH together. The movie would be equal parts band movie, road trip movie, and hyperviolent war movie.But seeing as no one likes anything nonhuman, an IG movie would be cool, I guess. Maybe something with Commander Sturnn so they can have him be played by Clint Eastwood.
I can imagine a movie scene combining Cain and the Blood Ravens.Cain is legging it to the armoury and bursts in on the Blood Ravens stealing everything not nailed down.after a tense few seconds, Cyrus says"we didn't see nothin' if you didn't"

>>20033341It's tough, because they're not really "black" anymore. Their skin is literally jet-black, and their eyes burn red. Something something flaw in their gene seed and the sun of their home worlds.It would be more visually accurate now to cover Steve Austin in shoe polish, or use frame by frame editing to change the skin color. Basically no matter what you do you'll have publicity problems.
>>20033387The Squats are actually canon once again, along with Catgirls.
>>20033404Does anyone know if Vanilla Ice is capable of acting?
>>20033385That's what I meant. Maybe a movie about a nob who's warboss' WAAAGH failed so he's surviving by pretending to be an Ultramarine.

>>20033312Pilot for the TV seriessetting is similar to >>20033164but follows a newly promoted Blood Raven battle brother.The story follows him as he finds out his chapter isn't all it seems, and the plot of the first one is a load of pissed off Marines from other chapters trying to get their gear back.he saves the day by detecting their ambush check in point and warning Vanilla Ice, who proceeds to unleash some wacky hijinks to distract them long enough for Thaddeus to stash the wargear in a drop pod and fire away for collection later.
>>20033458And it sucked.http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/nostalgia-critic/11980-coolice
A mockumentary about a bunch of Orks going on a WAAAGH. The story is that they find a human with a camera, and decide to spare him and let him come along so he can record eveything they do. The film is mixed between shots of Orks fighting, footage of what the Orks do when they're not in a battle, and interviews with different Orks in the WAAAGH like the mekboy or painboy.
A movie about the IG vs. the Eldar would be cool. Eldar's often inscrutable motives + disregard for human life would make a nice comparison to the Imperial Guard, who also don't care too much about human life (but a lot more than the Eldar).But we all know that an official GW movie would be about Space Marines fighting Orks until Chaos comes along and overrides any pre-existing plot.

>>20033457not that I have anything against Diesel, but since Gorgutz would probably be a VA role, couldn't we have Brian Drummond to reprise it?I can't see why he wouldn't, the guy clearly had a lot of fun with the role.

Personally I would just like to see Gitz row made into a game rather than a 40k movie.I would have much more fun playing the crazy ork boy trying to become a boss and lead a WAAAAAAAAAGH than I ever would by watching it
>>20033506>>20033538there would be a moment where he's watching the Mekboy tinker with his Shoota, muttering "moar dakka, need moar dakka!"so sir, what happens when you have enough dakka?At that point, every Ork eye snaps towards him.scene jumps to him seeing the Painboy.

>>20033620Shouldn't Wiseau be Abaddon?>Chaos, you are tearing my arms apaaaaaart!
>>20033620You're tearing me apart, Khorne!
>>20033603I'd say they are usually a funny group of people who become serious as soon as the fighting starts.
>>20033633+1 Vote on Danny DeVito for Khorne
>>20033641Morgan Freeman as Tzeentch and Griffin Keyes as Nurgle.
>>20033603How about this:Total whack comedy, but everything is actually completely dystopic.There's tons of gruesome slaughter in the background, with the foreground being really fucking hilarious, at least for combat scenes.The protagonists don't really care about any of the dangers due to their routine.You see the bad lives of people in the Imperium, etc.Only at the very end does the tone shift towards being really fucking serious and everyone being really fucking awesome.Afterwards, it goes right back to hijinks.
>>20033636I'd see them as a whole company that are like Legolas and Gimli in the movies.When fighting small bands of orks or traitor guardsmen they'd be playing games of "Toss the Ork" or how many Guardsmen they can kill using nothing but a toothbrush.however when the shit hits the fan, they suddenly become a wall of bros that fight to the end.
>>20033636I would prefer having fights as just another Tuesday.There's no reason to be serious when this is the two-hundreth year of fighting cultists. Your body should be moving on its own already.
>>20033653I was thinking kind of like a less serious Pulp Fiction with gratuitious violence in the background. Like, they're just casually sauntering through a horde of daemonettes raping a bunch of guardsmen and Sean Connery's just going "What do you mean you lost 100 baneblades? How does one even accomplish such a feat?"
>>20033663This is what I had in mind for them, we could have Martellus act as the Aragorn of this version, being the most serious of the lot.

>>20033687Bjorn is mowing down Orks in the background while Ice is saying"I already have Rhino Insurance!, stop calling!yes, I am aware that Stubbs has been seen in the area, I'm covered for it! How did you even get these vox details anyway?!"
>>20033698Yeah, that could work.He's always offended because of TECH HERESY.Just imagine:The fight starts, everyone is ready to do their thing...And Martellus stops them because they forgot to pray to their chainswords. And then there's this huge-ass discussion while the cultists are ripped apart with bare hands if they dare come too close.
>>20033736"I'm just saying, they were working fine before you pointed that out""That's not the point Captain! we have to revere the machine spir… one second""AUGH MY SPLEEN!""anyway, if we don't revere them they'll breakdown!""I see what you mean Martellus, but maybe the rites from last time where-""Behold the glory of khorne foolish slaves!!!…*AHEM* I SAID,""We heard you the first time! piss off, we're having a conversation you rude bastard!"
The only thing that could really get across 40k as a thing that makes it distinct from other big budget action films is if they went with the inquisition as a focus. Space marines would be dull as a main focus, and guard would be something we've all seen before and just be another war movie. But the inquisition, that's the one thing that could actually focus on a group of characters in a way that lets the setting do it's own thing.There's more things I would be sure to not want to see than specifically would. Mostly such things that fans would love but would over-complicate the core of the movie which should always be to tell a coherent story. So no adding in tons of different factions, keep down the fantasy references by avoiding orks and elves, have a single strong opposition to the main character in the form of something understandable, such as a chaos-corrupted inquisitor and have the story gradually reveal the horrors of that. A relatable protagonist through which things can be explored without the dreaded as-you-know scenes where two characters tell each other things they already know for the benefit of the audience. Keep it simple, keep it gritty, remember the black humour and don't make it about fucking space marines. Include one as a secondary character if required. Image unrelated.

>>20033725Gentlemen, now we must come up with a consensus on what to give this glorious series a proper title
>>20033831Strangely enough, I think Patrick Stewart would like that role.He's never been averse to acting like an idiot for the lulz.plus he's bald.
>>20033783I could imagine there being quite funny dialogs between Eliphas, Carron and Neroth as well.
I would suggest perhaps a mix of IG and marines, fighting either tyranids, or cultists and CSM. The IG the main characters for most of the movie, and in the end just before they are going to be overwhelmed space marines deepstrike using the maneuver steel rain and save their asses. Soon after being saved the movie ends ambiguously, the Guard forces have been saved, but they have still practically lost the battle, just being saved by the marines.Depending on the guard regiment I would suggest the following actors or types of actors.CatachanSchwarzeneggerStalloneOther bug guys that look like they belong in the regimentCadianGuys that look lets say prettier than Stallone in the like, like they are part of a well organized regiment.MarinesVin DieselThe RockOther dudes that are bald and not depressing
>>20033846Let's go simple:Warhammer 40.000: The Blood Ravens
>>20033846The looting Magpies
>>20033795A movie about the Inquisition could be like a James Bond film to be honest. Have some suave Inquisitor solve a mystery by shooting, slashing and fucking his way through all opposition.
>>20033877That's elegant and kind of hilarious if you look at the plot.
>>20033871Could be similar to Starshiptroopers. But it would work and as a debut film it's pretty safe, fine and is most likely going to generate money.
>An Ork movieA Deff Skwadron Movie!
>>20032205thanks for posting this anon. While the movie itself isnt so great, it had some great little details that stood out.The fact that the astropath's eyes were sunken in made his face skull like and eerie, I loved the chaos marine/lord's toothy headdress and I simply adored the gothic finial design around some of the marines helmet grills.
>>20033914The series could revolve around the Blood Ravens arriving on a different planet every episode/film. That way you could add jokes about the life on Cadia, Catachan, Krieg, Mars, Macragge or even Terra. A funny episode would be the one where they steal.. I mean get gifted a set of Custodian weapons and a peace of the Golden Throne.
Everyone wants a Horus Heresy Trilogy.First Founding/Great Crusade for the first movie, Horus heresy for the other two.Multiple points of view, from the lowly guardsman to the primarchs.
>>20033939In the Season 1 finale they take Creed on Holiday and go around stealing Titans.
Honestly? With a 40k movie, I would go full on Space Opera with a Rogue Trader. Have it open on a primitive world, and the characters are running from palace guards armed with muskets. They're cornered, and before they're murdered? Boom. Teleportarium'd out.Failing that? I dunno. A Last Chancer's movie, I guess? Though GI Joe-ish IG might be interesting, especially if you show that the IG has little regard for human life.I would avoid doing anything with space marines.
>>20033846WE ARE THE SPEHSS MUHREENS.And the tagline would be OUR ENEMIES DIE
>>20033939Every episode is them trying to pull of a heist, in the style of Ocean's Eleven:Gabriel: "Step 1, gain acces to the emperor's throne room"*cutscene showing VI and Boreale knocking out 2 custodes and taking their armour*"Step 2, reach the golden throne"etc. etc. etc.

>>20033969>>20033939I like these Ideas, especially the part where they talk about/visit Cadia, Catachan, Krieg, Mars, Macragge and Terra. Makes the series less in an intergalactic scale and more about the planets/people themselves.Also an idea for an episode, They go to a planet (can't think of one) and there's a race to win a grand prize (The grand prize being a relic) and there are orks in red bikes, a white scar on a bike, Doomrider, one of the main protagonists as well, and of course Eliphas.

For all the people suggesting robert pattinson for captain vanilla ice, can I please propose a replacement in David Tennant? He at least has some acting chops

>>20034116>Creed: Occasional Mentor for the Blood Ravens whenever they want to pull off some epic thievery and need tactical guidanceShould be hammy as fuck, never giving straight advice. Instead, inspirational speeches with indirect hints.Tends to appear out of nowhere.
>>20034154Actually, I read that Robert Pattinson is a decent actor....Let me guess, you only hate him because of Twilight, right?Maybe you'll like him more when I tell you that he hated his character and tried to portray him as a drug addict. He only played the role to score with the female main actor.
I for one would like to see an exploration of an aspect of WH40k that I think goes unloved by the video games and animated film: The shadow war of the Inquisition fighting the force of heresy and corruption. A film about a single cell of Acolytes in an Imperial hive city, desperately trying to combat cults, mutants, and rebels could be very compelling if done right, and address themes like security, freedom, and control, which I think are very relevant in today's society with our concerns over terrorism. But we're more likely to get Chest-Thumping-Bravado-and-Heaving-Boobs Action Film #23214234.
>>20034154I don't mind Either Tennant or Pattinson.this anon has a point >>20034201Pattinson realised he can say whatever the fuck he wants because he's irreplacable and has stated his contempt for the series and his attempts to play the character as bad as possible (while still getting under the radar) on a few occasions.
>>20034154nope, I've seen his other stuff, like water for elephants and based my opinion off of that. I tried reading the first twilight book and couldn't stand the thought of subjecting myself to that drivel. I think the man has been plagued with some crappy scripts; I'm sure he could really impress me with the right film and script- but I'd rather see an actor who is somewhat consistent; if that makes sense.

Macha:Aside from her virgin issue, she sometimes sees visions of the Emperor.It's not clear if it's a transmission by the Emperor or just her being schizophrenic.
Anything that does not show Space Marines without helmets or talking in anyway, it cannot be done well.Otherwise, I do not know, Inquisition shenanigans probably
I'm thinkin' make a movie series based on the Horus Heresy. Make the first motion picture about the Ullanor Campaign. Call it a prequel. And because it's pre-heresy, it won't be too grimdark. Also, you can't focus on the primarchs, they'll need developing.

Never ever the fuck say Horus Heresy. The story needs to be self-contained and require little setup. No, 40k does not require the Horus Heresy as setup any more than Star Wars required the clone wars.Would a war story be good? No, probably not. Probably it would be a flashy pile of dick. Make it a noir about an inquisitive adept getting in over his head when he investigates a paperwork error, or a planetary lord trying to quash a rebellion without drawing the Imperium's attention to his highly inefficient planet.
>>20034371The Horus Heresy would be terrible as a movie series. There are too many characters, too many events, and too long of a time period.It would make a fantastic HBO series though.
>>20033831No, Morgan Freeman should be providing the smooth, dulcet tones of Slaanesh.>"It's been a hard life and nothing ever gets easier does it? You wish there was a way out? I thought so and I can help. First I want you throw out everything in your house that annoys you, go ahead I'll wait.">"Felt good didn't it? Now put on some comfortable clothes and buy yourself a treat, you've earned it. Feeling better? I thought so. I also think it's time you told your neighbor exactly what you think of him.">"There you go, not having that on your chest is a great feeling. You know what else would feel good? A stiff drink, maybe even two. Yeah, that hit the spot didn't it? Go on have another, today's your day.">"You want to keep that feeling flowing don't you? Of course you do; here, smoke this crack. You feeling it? Yeah, you feeling it. Now get in your car and hit the highway, really open her up and put the pedal to the metal. It doesn't matter if it's safe, I'll take care of everything."
>>20034612>Now get in your car and hit the highway, really open her up and put the pedal to the metalholy shit, this would be an awesome way of portraying Slaanesh without the "lololololsex! XD" vibe some people tend to take
We now have a pilot. Unfortunately, it would probably be like those SciFi Original Movies. I smell suck. Whether it's Manos: The Hands of Fate suck or Rocky Horror Picture Show suck depends on the quality of the writer.I guess part of the problem with the Horus Heresy would be that the episodes would have to be a bit long. I don't know if you can fit in one piece of the story into a 40-minute block.
>>20034612ALL OF IT
>>20034612>"All this traffic is sure slowing you down, isn't it? Just zip between them and pass them all. Go on and drive on the shoulder, that's what it's there for. Don't worry about that bump, I'm sure didn't hit a guy on a motorcycle. Trust me.">"All that speed got your thirst worked up, good thing I know a little bar at the next exit. Just pull on in and have yourself a beer and some nachos, maybe a burger or sandwich. It's your choice my man.">"You see that guy next to the Jager machine? He's giving you the stink eye, after all you've been through why would you still let someone do that to you? Don't worry, just play it cool and grab the ketchup bottle.">"Now act like you're headed towards the restroom and club him in the head with the bottle when you pass. Don't worry, it won't break. Hoho, that go everyone worked up didn't it? Be cool and grab the beer stein on the counter.">"Now just smash it into that burly guy's face when he comes at you; that's it, take the big guys down first. See that nice little piece of jagged glass left? That's your money maker. Now cut open the face of that bitch on the left. She ain't gonna be pretty no more."
>>20034798> So now the bar's burnin' nicely. Heat feels good on your back, don't it? THAT's got the blood pumpin'.>Get back in your car and take a left out of the lot. Firefighters will clean up the mess. They've gotta earn a paycheck, too.>I know the signs don't say it, but Reno's 600 miles thisaway. You should have a good time, you've earned it.

A romantic comedy involving a Necron Tomb Lord looking for love, and a strong independent Admech priest who don't need no heresy.
>>20034950Oh goddamnit I remember that, didn't even keep up with that, how did that even end?>>20034922Now that's the part that confuses me. Don't like daemon princes never die or something, just like be reborn in the warp after being slain or some shit? Though he did count as a sacrifice as you mentioned, so maybe you're right despite his ascension. Forgive my ignorance, haven't really looked up on how daemon princes function.
>>20034612Along with this, why the hell is Danny Devito Khorne? The only one less qualified to be Khorne is fucking Gilbert Gottfried. If anyone's seen It's Always Sunny, you know his gurgly frank voice should most definitely be Nurgle.I mean, fuck, watch this and tell me those groans are more Khornate then Nurglitic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTZ_ZPIEqBw
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.htmlUpvote this shit, boys.
I have the perfect plot, ok, so the orks are attacking a planet, then the imperial forces are sent to save the planet. It turns out it was the eldar who sent the orcs b/c they were trying to stop chaos. Then chaos comes and the imperial forces fight chaos. Then a space marine captain defeats the demon prince/warlord in single combat and leaves the planet. Then exterminatus happens.
>>20034395Carron is a mad Chaos Dreadnaught. He hates metal bawkses and will never stop complaining about them. This constantly annoys Eliphas and leads to more bickering between him an Neroth. Carron could also work as a nemeis for Thule seeing how they both where in Soulstorm and are both Dreads now.
>>20035153Thule was Dark Crusade, not Soulstorm.
>>20035171Ooops, I confused him with Boreale. Sorry.

>>20035247This series need a 1d4chan article. Will the thread be archived?
>>20035242>>20035247All we're missing is Sam Jackson as the token Salamander.

Needs to be IG vs. Tyranids, just as campy as Starship Troopers. Have the marines come in and save the day at the last minute. Either that, or have it be based off of Caiphas Cain, Hero of the Imperium.

While this thread didn't go in the direction I hoped, it was brought a tear to my eye.I'd also be totally up for a tsundere Taldeer Wraithlord that's trying to get into Blood Raven power-armor-pants.
>>20035679I sense a Bjorn/Davian/Carron/Taldeer romance subplot…
>>20035776They are METAL BAWKSES!
>>20035679>>Taldeer WraithlordWouldn't that be, like, a Wraith... Lady?
>>20035828Doesn't one of the Imperial Armour books have something called a "Wraithseer"?
>>20035776>>20035788This can't end well....You know what?How about having the entire movie take place in a single battle?So instead of having scenes inside and outside of battle, with the battles being used as humorous backdrops, it's CONSTANT BATTLES.Why? Because there's only war in the grimdark future of the 40th Millenium.
>>20036136I support this notion.
If there was a 40k movie it needs to end with a sweeping shot of the golden throne with the emperor sat in it. just before it cuts to credits his hand twitches and grasps his sword.
Fuck, we need drawfags to create the storyboard for this movie.Is there a drawthread active right now?
bumping to attract drawfags
>>20034127>>20033871So basically ˜Mercenaries˜ with Aliensi'm okay with it>>20036684That's one focused drawthreadit makes no sense to request anything of this thread there
>>20036264I support this, but GW will never let this happen.
So... Let's work on a script?New thread? We only have four posts until autosage.
>>20037074Better start a new thread. Maybe we'll get a drawfag.
