Yesterday i went and saw the new Narnia movie, and it got me thinking. It was very LOTRish, i think alot of that was due to the fact that Tolkien and Lewis were aparently good mates. I was also amazed at the battle scene, and i started thinking again. I know that the chances of GW acculy translating the movie into a game is very very very very unlikely, infact, i know it proberly wont happen. But i just thought it would be cool to be in charge of an army of Minators and creatures lyk that. With Aslan by your side taking down the evil creatures as he charges into battle. I was just wondering if anyone else thought it would be a good idea, or even would consider playing it, if it ever was developed. I think it has enough room for expansion aswell, i think there was 8 or 9 books in the series, i dunno exactly.
Its unlikley,LOTR Movies were like 90% WAR.The Narnia movie only had 2 sides,and that concludes to 2 available armies that dont have many different units.It seems to be a creative idea but GW needs to focuse on their main products.
The movie wasn't that great. I feel asleep the second time I saw it. I highly doubt there's enough material to make a miniuature range from, and even if they did, I wouldn't play it. Playing a minis game with someone else's characters isn't appealing. I'd recommend instead, firing up a game of D&D, as it allows for more flexibiliy and customization. I'd rather GW just drop LOTR and focus on what needs to be done in WHFB and 40K.

First 7 books, the first came out 1950 (4 years before lord of the rings).
Anyway, I cant really see narnia as a table top game. The Story is not about war in the same way as the move lord of the ring is (the book is not about war eider...). Then there is the fact in Narnia donâ€™t have that many different sides. Sure there is more then the two showing in there the first move. You have the "Calormen"* in the fare south, Persian like. And "Arkenland"*, the country that is south west of Narnia as well. Maybe you can throw in a army of giants as well...
But still thatâ€™s only 4 (5) not that much to build on. Well this is what I think any way.
*I donâ€™t know the names in English :tongue:
Well since they were published as childrens books one would expect a certain amount of childishness. I personally enjoyed the movie alot, though I would have a hard time seeing it as a minatures game like 40k though maybe there might be a scenario based mordheim skirmish type game they could make out of it. Though again I can not imagine it would do very well really.
yer i supose it was abit childish, but i really like the CG work and the battle scene. I didnt think it was that best idea, but id just love to control some of those units that were on both sides of the battle, and to see an army of them painted up. Some minitures that could be created out of them would be brillant
I saw the film last night and didn't that it was all that bad and I didnt really see the Religion in other than the son of Adem and daughter of Eve bit as fro the aslan being Jesus WTF is that about he is brought back because the witch can't sodding read (there is an incribtion on hte alter that says a willing victim will be brought back to live). Battle wise was ok the tueran sorry minotuers where great but the only blood i have seen was when Edmund was stabed by the Ice queen.
And one other thing Peter was such a puff he was holding that sword so that had anyone actualy attacked him it would have flown acroos a football pitch before landing and there where about 4 or 5 five times in the film where you could tell the wanted some forbiddenlove with the girl playing his sister.
Yes people i know that my spelling and punctuation is awful but I am product of British teaching pollicies so what can I do about it?
Wow, khazad varn, you have got to learn to puntuate and spell. Sorry to bust your chops, mate, but we try to uphold a high standard for posting here on LO.
I don't see a Narnia game flying at all. Most GW enthusiasts don't even like LOTR, and The Chronicles of Narnia is even more directed towards young children.
As for the movie, I thought it was pretty good. It was clearly very family friendly (well, its Disney, for crying out loud), and the battle was completely bloodless, but it was still very entertaining. On many levels, the movie was more "fantasy-orientated" than the LOTR films, which really tried to make the world very realistic and believeable. Narnia is fun, and in some ways more enjoyable than LOTR, but just don't expect too much from it.
Finally, for anyone who saw Narnia and got the ancient battle vibe from it, try out Warhammer Fantasy. You could easily make an army similar to the ones seen in the film. If you want an army of Minotaurs and similar creatures, go Beastmen, and voila. If you want to field Griffons, unicorns, and other fantastical beasts, there are WFB armies that can do that.
