I think space marines and impierial gaurd, since they are the main races in dawn of war, and also include chaos and eldar. THEN tyranids and dark eldar (both problums to all) and Then necrons and tau. So what do you think? Any ideas for a plot and setting? :beer:
if anything it would be some conflict between the imperium and chaos like IG space marines V chaos
no no no......see here is how it wuld go....the movie wuld haf the exact same plot and settin of dark crusade...necrons awakin.....eldar go to stop them...space marines foloow....tau are there for the greater good......ect.... and show like a big battle between all da races
good plot but if they made a movie they wouldnt base it of a warhammer game they'd make there own plot cause ppl would say great movie but lazy on alrdy taking a plot so if anything it would be my idea not braging but think about it if somone did make a warhammer movie they'd want the most common and favorite races IG and Space Marines Vs Chaos in some conflict were Chaos Ingage some imperial vessal or planet thats the imperial guard are controling and defending then the space marines would run and try to get there to save them from invation or instead of chaos orks and chaos are plotting somthing on the imperium while the Space Marines and IG's are being held off by orks and the imperium is destratced then Chaos attacks somthing very important to the Space marines maybe like there cruisar and try to destroy the gene seed they have and then the rest is self explanatory i think my idea would be the closest to what they'd make its kinda like the first Dawn Of War campaign but diffrent SM chpater and diffrent plot just same kinda details again im not bragging.
This has been discussed in many forums many times (Generally just plain 40k in general, no DoW, but same point), and it boils down to this: Any movie that would attempt to put all or most of the races in would be a very poor movie. Think of it this way: There are 8 different races: Imperium (SM, IG, Sisters of Battle, etc), Chaos, Eldar, Dark Eldar, Orks, Tau, Tyranids, and Necrons. Your standard movie is around 2 1/2 hours. That means about 15 minutes to introduce each race, with 30 minutes left over for the rest of the plot. and you are going to need more than 30 minutes for general plot and not introducing races.
The best way to do a movie with all of the races would be to have a TV show beforehand, introducing each race. There are usually upwards of 12 episodes in a season, so you could easily introduce each race in a very good manner, and even have the imperium factions separate. This way you wouldn't be cramming so much stuff down the throats of the people trying to watch it, because most people watching it will not have the faintest clue what 40k is.
the eldar did not go there to stop the necrons they were being chased by the space Marines and landed there and the necrons just happened to be there
no they are goin there to stop the necrons just like in wa they didnt just happend to randomly land on a planet with necrons on it.
Eldars NEVER do random stuff.
they were being chased by the space Marians and were forced to land there.ok?
A tv show dose sound nice, but we dont have to introduce them all. Like I said, since IP and Sm's are the main races we should go with them first. Then they suddently meat the chaos space marines.We dont need to explain mutch about chaos. But i agree a tv show would be good. but since many people dont know what warhammer 4000 is, Games workshop should make a cermercail, I mean it, it will work, so when ever people walk into games work shop, they dont say "huh? whats this place?" and leave.... Even tho makeing a advertising warhammer would be hard an expensive, it would work. Plus one GW probably makes allot of money, based on warhammer prices. and beetween it all its a great idea. Get it?:nodding:
