ITT we discuss plot lines for an inquisition movie.

Do we take the extreme grimdark approach and have a world be cut off from support by the inquisition in the face of invasion for the simple sake of ease of planning?

Or the more subdued from of inquisition corruption being purged by Ordo Hereticus

>> No.18504624


That's actually an important quality, I think. I remember Plinkett making the point in his "Phantom Menace" review that a movie set in a weird space fantasy world generally needs to have a main character who's just an ordinary guy for the audience to connect and empathize with. And despite GW's hardon for Mehreens, I doubt they'd be able to fill that role without seriously altering their established lore.

The protagonist would ideally be from some backwater world where few people have even heard of Tyranids/Necrons/Daemons/whatever-the-movie's-villain-is, who either gets drafted into the Guard or gets chosen to serve under an Inquisitor after he passes some secret test of character or something.

Could be fun.

>> No.18504628


It could follow the heroics of a local guard general defending the planet and holding the xenos at bay only to have contact cut off from the supply chains from local worlds and have the inquisition inform him of their decision and the lack of ships to evacuate the populace.

Then everything goes to chaos, which is why the eldar show up.

>> No.18504642

Only if the story itself was one worth watching.

Live action or not, if the film is something I can watch without having turn off my brain and just be entertained by shiny things moving on a screen, then it might be worth it. The last film certainly was nothing but a waste of time, so there's not exactly a good track record from the official side of things.

>> No.18504647

40k, as a setting, is epic, there;s no other way to describe it, everything is enormous, million-man charges, titans the size of skyscrapers, countless trillions of citizens.

In order for the film to be good, it has to stay true to this, so it has to be epic.

And that is fucking expensive, there'd be an outrageous amount of cgi, and that will have to be very high-quality, the costumes would also require high levels of detail, also expensive, power armour etc. has to be made out of expensive materials, you'll need hundred of extras, so on and so forth.

All this shit? Expensive.

The film follows a young boy or girl as they try to survive in a hive city. The Main character is followed around by his imaginary friend or conscience, who helps them make tough decisions etc and overcome hardships/rape/ohmygodhivecitylowerlevels

The film also includes clips from the view of an Inquisition team who are trying to track down a rogue psyker.

The MC manages to survive through luck and bypassing troubles in their path then it gets all 'happy end'-y.

Then they're executed for Heresy. Suddenly all the 'I run/get away safely' scenes with the MC are turned into horrible massacres as they speak in tongues and kill people with their mind.

Turns out imaginary friend is a daemon, inquisition cleanses entire lower levels of the hive just to make sure.

I think the inquisition is probably the best angle to work when it comes to 40k, since the major thing it has over any other one to go with is that it is distinctly 40k.

A story for a general audience (or even not particularly general) set in the universe should justify it being set there by making use of it. That with 40k means delving into the who and why of the insanity that's going on. And the inquisition does that well, any story set around them pretty much has to go into justifying why the badguys are apparently the ones we're supposed to root for in the story by showing the horrific things going on, as well as easily making use of aliens, varieties of humans and their outlooks on the events.

Plus it'd be easier to set up the stakes involved, and have there be more to it than straight up fighting. A war movie is not something making the best use of the setting, despite the 'only war' tagline. There's not enough to easily set it apart from other sci-fi war movies without delving into the crazy shit that is going on around/that is the cause of the fighting.

You should only have the space marines show up and be viewed remotely but the experience would be communicated with awe. That way they are accurately portrayed.

Like guardsmen fighting a losing battle for the last 3-4 days and having a squad of marines show up and completely annhiliate the enemy that's attacking but the guardsmen only see that happening in the distance.

Ever see Fire Warrior's cutscene involving the Space Marines gunning down all those unarmed Tau?
Do that, from the perspective of a Tau civilian who is killed by a contemptuous swat. Have it start with basically a normal day, the Tau doing normal Tau things, then a drop pod smashes through a building and the killing starts.
Then show the Marines storming a Tau brainwashing center and/or concentration camp. Two sides to every story.
It's easiest to do that kind of thing with the Tau, because even the Eldar Exodites are too warlike for the Marines to seem as monstrous.

I was actually discussing this with my brother recently, and that was exactly how we'd want to do the murheens.

Have them mentioned as legends and hinted at, then at some last ditch moment when all seems lost, the sky blackens with drop pods, and have the previously dangerous foe be absolutely obliterated by the sheer fury.

Make it completely take the violence and action to the next level, like, previously it was a gritty semi realistic sci-fi, then suddenly hits maximum awesome.

Then yeah, have them suddenly be all well spoken and monk like afterwards.

Also, think something like this would be a good opener for a 40k film, sets the grimdark scene well, opening on exterminatus.

Let me cuntpaste from Wikipedia.
>an "illustrious Victorian soldier": experiencing many 19th century wars and adventures and rising to high rank in the British Army, acclaimed as a great soldier, while remaining by his unapologetic self-description "a scoundrel, a liar, a cheat, a thief, a coward—and oh yes, a toady." Fraser's Flashman is an antihero who runs from danger or hides cowering in fear, betrays or abandons acquaintances at the slightest incentive, bullies and beats servants with gusto, beds every available woman, carries off any loot he can grab, and gambles and boozes enthusiastically. Nevertheless, through a combination of luck and cunning, he usually ends each volume acclaimed as a hero.
Seriously, he was pretty much the worst person imaginable (they forgot "rapist"). Yet he's written as really witty, so it's actually darkly humorous.

I'd like the movie to be something like this..

During the prologue, we see a young man growing up on a standard imperial world. No sound to it, instead we hear the standard 40K narration.

It will show him growing up, it is harsh, but doable. But then.. war comes to his home, Rebel forces. Among them we see the gigantic forms of chaos Space Marines, defilers. Flocks of lesser daemons in the sky. Destroying and demolishing everything. He flees, losing friends and family.

It cuts to him joining the PDF. More desperate fights. We see him in a trench, fighting mad heretics. A daemon shows up, preferably a bloodletter. The old kind, with a dog's face, and a huge axe. Carving it's way through his squad. But in the end, our hero manages to drive it back, and finally destroy it with a grenade.

During that flash the title will show.

When he comes to he is in an army hospital. Nurse-sisters running around. Our character will be under guard, and soon after he wakes up, an interrogator walks over to him and explains that since he showed enough strength to kill a daemon. He has been 'chosen' to join the Inquisition.

Then there will be a few explosions and stuff, and the forces of Chaos attack the military camp. A squad of raptors would be cool here. The Interrogator leads the retreat of his squad and our main character, through lines of guardsmen holding the line... to an aquila lander and two escort fighters. Which takes off, and we'll see just how badly it has gone for the guard and pdf when it zooms out.

They fly off, and during the flight the Interrogator talks over a vox to someone about that they have probably gotten everyone they can salvage from this warzone, and it is time to end it.

Cue leaving the atmosphere, to see enormous imperial warships. And the burning wrecks of chaos ships. And they glide up to present broadsides... and starts firing.
After that it'll be more of a hunt-the-arch heretic story, with the team of acolytes. The inquisitor he works under is a radical, but not a bad one. An istvaanian, or so. A character sitting on the fence between anti-hero and anti-villain. As to fit the setting.

And we follow this grunt throughout lots of gritty fights, death and dark plots. Involving lots of daemons. Preferably a daemonette or two.

Because it's a bloodletter that stands out. I personally consider those Bloodletters to be basically the oldest and best of the Bloodletters, since everything is canon unless explicitly retconned.

'Beauty, wonder and horror beyond imagining' is basically what every greater daemon and most lessers sans perhaps nurglings should evoke - or barring that, at least intermingled horror and awe.
Kind of like that page quote for the Fair Folk on tvtropes.

After all, many greater demons started as deities in their own right, with all that implies.

I'd like something that captures this essence, where these demons aren't just fancy cgi, but like that Balrog in LotR, something wiith a *presence*

>> No.18505979

Only if it was this

If it was all about SM it would look bad since the actors would move weird in that armor.

Maybe if it was done in really good CG so that the SMs looked real and their faces were copied off real people but just plain real with no FX for the SMs. No it would look awkward.

>> No.18505990

Hmm... I'd say the acolytes on an Inquisitor would make the most sense.
A decent group of weirdos, with their own radically different personalities, facing cultists, aliens, and daemons.

I mean in that there's unrequited love, "office politics" leading to sneaking into the Ordo Malleus' offices, assassins, guardsmen, and the warp.

>> No.18505996

I once dreamt of my perfect intro sequence for a 40k movie.

It's a trench in a wet, muddy and foggy wasteland. Some bunkers. All the guardsmen are in the trench, waiting, trying to pierce the thick fog with their eyes. Te commissar is, naturally, not in cover, but he walks atop the trench, holding a speech. I forgot what the speech was like. Then suddenly... Suddenly you hear them coming. From beyond the impenetrable fog, the earth-shattering WAAAAAGH of a thousand orks, and insane amounts of gunfire. The guardsmen do their best to return the fire, heavy stubbers roar as they fire into the grey mist... Then the charging orks, green monstrosities wielding weapons the size of a man, finally appear. There's too many of them, and the trench quickly turns into an onslaught of both guardsmen and orks. The commissar still stands upright in the heat of battle, shouting orders and blamming orks. But they keep coming. And this is the moment when the commissar grabs the vox from the dying sergeant by him, and screams into it, barely audible over the sounds of battle: "CONCENTRATE ARTILLERY FIRE ON OUR POSITION!"
He then drops the vox to the ground and continues fighting, until the whistling of approaching artillery fire is heard. The commissar, knowing the time of sacrifice has come, screams "FOR THE EMPEROOOOR", before the huge blast of the first artillery shell consumes his form. Then artillery shells begin raining down upon the position, blowing thousands of orks and what little remains of the guardsmen to smithereens, covering everything in smoke, mud and debris. The last orks are fleeing in terror. This is not the fight they expected.

>> No.18506002


Once the smoke clears, only craters, ruined bunkers and the dead remains. And our two protagonists(?), two guardsmen that not only survived the onslaugt, but even the bombardment, still shocked and deafened.

And they still hold the line.

If daemons are used, I'd say go for Nurgle or Tzeentch.

The other two are probably too regular, and the Bloodthirster would be accused of being a Balrog rip off (and not unjustly so).
A Lord of Change on the other hand? Something part avian, part angelic, part dragonic, and part humanoid.

I'd love to see the Fall of Iyanden done as a movie.

Start off with the banishment of Yriel, leading to the winding plots about the rise of Yriel as a Pirate Lord, and how the Craftworld starts getting omens of destruction lasting decades.

Then Hive Fleet Kraken starts appearing, destroying many of the agricultural worlds of the Craftworld, andcutting off their lines of support which arn't via the webway.

This would of course culminate in the huge battle where even the dead of Iyanden are forced into battle, where their greatest seers fall, and eventually Yriel would return, to take the Spear of Twilight, and save the craftworld from utter destruction.

It's solid but generic, so 40k it up. Add in a bunch of that 'Gothic Craziness' that makes the Imperium the Imperium, and not the Federation or the Galactic Senate.

You know those old marching war chants soldiers used to sing and such? Have the guardsmen quail under the roar of the orks, until the commissar and a priest or two pulls them together with The Litany of Saint Whatshisface III. Remember, commissars are fanatically faithful, but they're not frothing idiots. They know how to motivate soldiers without yelling and blamming every two seconds.

The singing picks up in volume as the orks approach, two competing masses as the lasguns and dakka flies. Then the lines collide. Bayonet-thrists and point-blank lasfire keeps them at bay for the first wave or two, until the guardsmen begin flagging.

The commissar looks at the officer in command. He gives a curt nod of understanding, and quickly relays a set of co-ordinates into the vox-transmitter. The commissar gives a rallying speech, and the voices of the guardsmen pick up one final time, grim-faced and singing glory to He on Terra as they disappear in the white-hot flashes of a large bombardment on their position.

And chainsword-porn. Lots of it.

There should be a psyker in it, at least one. He'd be the crazy defeatist guy on the team who's always panicking (Think Private Hudson from Aliens) but he's capable of pulling off amazing shit if he's properly motivated.

He goes daemonhost near the end, maybe the Big Bad decides to use him as a sacrifice or something.

Also there needs to be a sexy assassin girl who's set up to be the love interest but either A. dies halfway through act 3, B. turns out to be a blood-crazed psycho and drives the protagonist away, if she doesn't outright betray the team, or C. decides to call off the relationship because it's not professional/too dangerous.

Cain, frankly is the best possible anchor point for any 40K movie.

He's the one character in the 40K universe most people could relate to on a regular basis, and Jurgen makes perfectly good comic relief to boot. ALL GRIMDARK ALL THE TIME wouldn't do the trick.
