I would like a 40K movie to DVD regardless, I just hope taht if the story blows they do a good job with the graphics. Orks will be the most likely adversaries, But I could see them doing the Nids, or Eldar too.
Before you start ranting about how great any of the novels are think about the majority of the populace. Most people have not even heard of Warhammer, And those that play warhammer I'm willing to bet a good portion do not read the novels, like Myself (don't have time). Yes I know the stories are great I ahve read a total of 2 in my life. However they want the movie to appeal to the masses.
If they are smart they will captivate teh audience with a good story line of the basic "we know who is good and who is Bad" (Orks, and Nids) When that does good they can start introducing more movies possibly prequels to cover the Horus Heresy.
Yes Starshiptroopers and Aliens we have seen Gaurd and Nids, Lord of the Rings we have seen Orcs and Dwarfs and Elves, people can identify these creatures easier. It would be easier to sell people these ideas than possibly alienating the populace by have Satanic (chaos) beings in the first movie as teh main focus.
Also because they have Black Reach as a box set, granted it would be a year out from release, the newly converted will have a cheaper way of getting into the game.
I really want to see the scenario book asap!!! And of course anything for more campaign promises to go south is good too! (***shame on me***) :- (
my 2 cents
The footprints made in the sands of time are not made by sitting down... Unless your playing Warhammer WAAAGH!
New times calls for new Records:
Orcs & goblins (3-1-2)
Imperial Guard (0-0)
