Crynn's Corner - The Lord Inquisitor

The Lord Inquisitor

So I just wanted to make a little ‘spot’ on this blog for myself which I intend to mainly use as a space to write Warhammer 40k related tactica articles. Occasional I will throw in a personal modelling article or even something miscellaneous that pertains to 40k, which is what I want to quickly discuss today.

So I am sure we have all heard of the 'Ultramarines' movie and for some unfortunate individuals you may have actually sat through it. Whilst the movie was for lack of a better term, abysmal, even taking in to account the budget that it was made on, I’m sure most people would agree the world of Warhammer 40,000 would make a fantastic setting for a CGI film. It’s just a pity no one is trying to take our beloved hobby and properly bring it to life in CGI right? Wrong? Enter 'The Lord Inquisitor'.
'The Lord Inquisitor' is a CGI short film still in production and due for release in late 2012 - early 2013. This project has been pioneered by Erasmus Brosdau who for the greater part of this project, has been single-handedly working to create the movie in his own spare time for no other reason than his for love of CGI and of course the world of Warhammer 40k. Now heading a team of eight, he has managed to put out a fantastic short trailer for us all to salivate over (click the ‘lord Inquisitor Link to watch it). Also on the website are some short animations he has been working on for the movie such as a Thunderhawk landing and opening its front ramp. The quality of work is remarkable especially when you consider this project has no official funding and is obviously completely unendorsed.
So go have a look for yourself, watch the trailer as well as some of the clips and see what you think. Hopefully we can spread awareness of this project to others so that it gains more support and a larger following. It really is great to see an independent doing something GW could not and doing is so well. Who knows, maybe one day we will see a full length 40k movie on the big screen!
