Well as i was saying i was thinking about makeing a 3.5 million dollar movie about tau vs marines and i just wanted to hear your guyses feed back and maybe idea for the script plot and any other thing i should add since you guys really are the experts on warhammer 40k but keep in mind that the budget will hopefully be 3.5 mill thx.
Even if you made it GW will prevent you from releasing it.
Honestly sounds like a quick battle. Marines won't show up until tau have done something major, then Marines drop in a few pods to the heart of the battle and slaughter the etheral and retake the stretegic point.
That and GW won't let you unless you paid them quadrouple the cost it took for you to make it. Plus a ton of the profit

Yea as everyone said if you tried GW would kick down your door and slaughter your children. But personally I always thought that the best movie would be one about the primarchs and the Horus hesery.GW is only going to put out a movie as a last stich effort to save itself should money ever get really tight, as for now I dont think they want to ruin their stores atmosphere by having each store packed with ten year olds who want to play cause of the movie.

EDIT: OK let me refraise that, GW will not let you make a $3.5 million dollar movie because they have a policy against it, and if you sell it on DvD, blu-ray and whatever else we have, and just one employee see's a commercial for it: you will be sued for using copyrighted material and not giving 99% of the income to games workshop and would go to jail with a $100000000 dollar fine with no bail!
but you could make a cheap flash movie that's extremely accuret (unlike my typing) and fluffy! *that means unstoppable movie marines!*

I am pretty sure that GW has a problem with fans making movies to now.

Edit: Well, I read some of the legal and it seems "cannot" is appropriate. It seems to have something to do with retension of trademarks.

hey, what I want to know is where you got 3.5million, and why you want to blow it on making a movie.
And listen, you give me royalties, and you wanna make a movie for 3.5 million- you and I will get together online sometime and I'll set you up a pretty good story (got one or two written for giggles and such. they're book form, but you could translate them)
