Ordo Xenos InquisitorIdon't know about you guys, but Eisenhorn as a 40k film would be fantastic... Anyone agree?

Chew ToyBe better a made for TV miniseries, you would cover more material that way.
I'd rather have Michael Bay direct a film of it with creative advice from Matt Ward.
Needs moar friendship.So you want every other character of relevance to be an Ultramarine?
Grandpa DreadnoughtThey can't. They're dangerously undermanned after the Blood Ravens
Only a cat of a different coat, that's all the truth I know...

Bigfoot PuncherThread necro! It's cool. I'm the OP. So anyways, I had this idea, which would make, if not an interesting film, then at least an interesting fanfiction, and it explores the concept of despair in the hopeless universe of the 41st millennium. Yes. Nurgle will be involved. So there's this Hive City, and this young boy is living a terrible life. He watched his family get executed by Imperial troops in the aftermath of a rebellion, but he escapes notice. He joins the gangs. He spends a miserable early childhood. He grows to become a major Straw Nihilist who hates the entire world he lives in for making life so terrible. He vents this rage on rival gangers, but his own gang also mistreats him, and one day, he snaps and attacks them. After a great battle, he slaughters everyone who faces him. This catches the attention of a Space Marine chapter, and he is recruited against his will and after some grueling Training from Hell, he is accepted into the ranks of the chapter. However, all that training failed to stamp out his massive Wangst and misanthropy completely. After a century or two of combat against various enemies of the Imperium, his company arrives at a Hive World to put down a Nurgle-backed rebellion, and during combat with a Chaos psyker, the psyker gets in his head and he suddenly remembers all that horrible shit that happened to him in his past. This reawakens his deeply buried hatred of humanity and the Imperium, and he goes rogue. Not sure what happens in between, but he eventually ends up becoming a Nurgle sorcerer (specifically the servant of a Great Unclean One who wins him over by showing sympathy for his plight), goes back to his homeworld and casts a spell that makes the entire population feel all of his Wangst in revenge for his horrible life. The entire world sinks into depression and guilt as it is cut off by Warp storms for a few centuries. When the storms subside, the Tau arrive and try to annex the world. The depressed population responds well to the Tau's ideals of egalitarianism. And that's just the backstory. The meat of the story revolves around Imperial forces trying to win back the world in a three-way battle with the forces or Nurgle and the Tau in an epic clash of not just military might, but ideologies. During all of this the backstory will be revealed. I think the Nurgle sorcerer and the Great Unclean One ought to be using the Tau in some way to lure Imperial forces to the planet so that the sorcerer can have his revenge on them. And the main characters will be Space Marines or Sisters of Battle or something who have resist the Chaos daemon's temptations to fall in to despair. Anyways, it might be shit, it might not be, I dunno. It's the first time I've ever tried creating a story based off of someone else's IP.
A fistful of me.
Crazed LawrencianSomething about Space Marines and private gardens occurs to me. About the passing of time, and how a man at war still makes time for the small things in-between battles.
