So did you ever watch a movie see a character and scene and say that reminds me of 40k!
Please don't say the Lord of the Rings. Space Hobits...I wish rattlings were not represented on the tabletop and just in the fluff...
Anyhow, let me get started...
Pumpkin Head- I am not sure if that is the title. This is a crap horror movie form the 80's. The monster in there looks like a minor daemon.
Jude Dread- Judge Dread of course is an arbites in every aspect. The bad guy even looks a like a pit slave. Very 40k indeed.
Iron man- Remember the first suit he made in the cave. I saw it and was like wow...ork mega armour.
Hulk 2- The Abomination, if he was red that would make a pretty good deamon prince of Khorne. Especially, when he was hold that anchor.
The mutant Chronicles- Terrible movie...the opening scene was definitely an imperial guard scene with all the siege warfare and what not...then all of the sudden these deamonette looking monster kills them all. They even had the bone sword and all...except they were dudes, stupid and not too fast.
Anyhow...please share if any movie you remember watching was 40kish.
If you are into lighted-hearted fun where enjoying a game has priority over power gaming then go ahead and try BLOOD BOWL. You will be presently surprised.
Star Ship Troopers - Tyranids + Guard.
Event Horizon - Chaos + Warp travel without a Gellar field.
And Ewoks the caravan of courage –Jungle / woodland warfare on a epic scale…...
I AM BOOMER!

Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
I think that you will find that most of these references are backwards. GW is famed for its ability to cannabalise existing ideas for its armies and models. I think you should have asked people to identify which movie or event a race in 40k or model came from.
Alien, easily precedes the tyranids etc etc
Aliens my hive tyrant even looks like the alien queen without conversion. Any war film involving ww2 imp gaurd versus ?
Genestealers with implanting the geneseed and all that are very Alien like, but the Tyranid race in its current inception is:
*nothing* like Aliens from the movie
Nids & Guard
GMail = MVBrandt
Zulu- Praetorians vs... Feral Traitor Guard? or maybe Orks.. due to playing style, not aesthetics.
