If I am to be honest I had long given up on there being any half decent looking Warhammer 40k movie after the abortion that was Ultramarines. A shame as the wealth of backstory and imagination behind the entire franchise is absolutely huge and begging / deserving a good… nay, great conversion to the big screen; or at least youtube.
Having given up all hope of this every happening, I was randomly trawling through the tinterwebs last year when I stumbled across a fan project called ‘The Lord Inquisitor,’ A 40k fan film being made AND (the most important thing here) endorsed (or permitted anyway) by GW; to the point that they actually gave TLI team a Black Library writer to help out, in the form of Aaron Dembski-Bowden.
I followed the news on their website, facebook and youtube closely; hoping and praying to the God Emperor that it would do the franchise justice.
It was then, after many teasers and garbled messages, seeping through the warp, that a new teaser trailer materialised in real space….
Granted the voice over isn’t the best but it looks absolutely superb and if the finished product ends up anything like this, then I will be a very happy Warhammer Geek.

Another insight of The Lord Inquisitor project created and directed by Erasmus Brosdau. This teaser shows a glimpse of the space marines called “Grey Knights”, which will have an important role in the full movie.
Also this teaser marks a new era for independant film making as the whole sequence was entirely rendered in realtime using the not yet released CryEngine Cinebox.
