Codex Pictures Plans To Bring The Popular Warhammer 40,000 To Animated Life!

Oh my watch out, the World popular gaming franchise Warhammer 40,000 and a personal favorite of mine is to be made in animated glory. First one of the most gaming sensations of our time, then comic books, video games etc, now this read more here, exciting stuff...

Warhammer 40,000 Movie Brings Space Marines to Your Screen from Codex Pictures, plans to do the same for popular tabletop game Warhammer 40,000. Who knows what they will use? Ultramarines, Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Dark Angels (Hopefully all four and more), There's so many Space Marine clans, aliens etc, that the Warhammer Universe is as vast as any Star Wars or Star Trek's the idea's are endless!

All that is know is it will be Computer-animated and Space Marines and Orks will do battle in their own DVD movie. A sort of in the future Lord of the Rings if you will to those not too clued up to what Warhammer 40,000 really is. Heres a little history below .

Warhammer 40,000 (informally known as Warhammer 40K or simply 40K) is a tabletop miniature wargame produced by Games Workshop, set in a science fantasy universe. Warhammer 40,000 was created by Rick Priestley in 1987 as the futuristic companion to Warhammer Fantasy Battle, sharing many game mechanics. Expansions for Warhammer 40,000 are released from time to time, often to facilitate a certain sort of game, such as Cities of Death, Planet Strike and Apocalypse, which give rules for urban, planetary siege and large-scale combat, respectively. The game is currently in its fifth edition.
The Warhammer 40,000 setting is used for several related tabletop games, video games, and various works of fiction, including licensed works published by Black Library, a subsidiary of Games Workshop.

Players can assemble and paint individual 28 mm (1.1 in) scale miniature figures that represent futuristic soldiers, creatures and vehicles of war. These figurines are collected to comprise squads in armies that can be pitted against those of other players. Each player brings a roughly equal complement of units to a tabletop battlefield with handmade or purchased terrain. The players then decide upon a scenario, ranging from simple skirmishes to complex battles involving defended objectives and reinforcements. The models are physically moved across the table and the actual distance between models plays a role in the outcome of combat. Play is turn based, with various outcomes determined by tables and the roll of dice. Battles may last anywhere from a half hour to several days, and battles may be strung together to form campaigns. Some game and hobby stores host games periodically, and official tournaments are held on a regular basis.

Warhammer 40,000's gothic space fantasy setting spans a vast fictional universe. Its various factions and races include the Imperium of Man (the human race 38,000 years hence), the Orks (similar to Warhammer Fantasy Orcs), and the Eldar (similar to Elves in Warhammer Fantasy Battle). These races, along with their playing rules, are covered in the game's rule books and supplemental army codexes, along with articles in the Games Workshop magazines, White Dwarf and Imperial Armour. Lines of these miniatures are produced by Citadel Miniatures and Forge World.

LEEE777 - Codex Pictures brought Bionicle to animated life, so this really is exciting news, hopefully one step away from becoming a Live Action movie, now that truly would be epic. A cross between Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, who wouldn't want to see that on the big screen?

Warhammer truly is a fantastic world and if you get a chance go and read some of the graphic novels and comic books from your local comic book store, you wont regret it. I cannot tell you what good news it is for this to become a animated feature, cant wait! ; )
