Ah, with this new job for school I have alot of gaps of spare time with nothing but a pen, paper and a head filled with weird ideas that I pen down.
My latest (some call this idea sick and others call it downright awasome...) idea is a cross over between Warhammer 40.000 and the Lord of the Rings. I've seen both movies and though the director rapes the books and adds in the dwarf bashing and elf-fetishes, they are quite enjoyable.
After seeing two particular scenes* in the Two Towers I got the idea of the cross over.
Thusfar I've come up with these concepts, most of these might sound stupid, or, dare I say: Sick!
Replace the hobbits with hive gangers (Most preferably Delaque or Orlock.)
Bilbo Baggins: Ol' chem head Bobo
Gandalf: Priest and lateron a Saint
Aragorn: Rogue trader or a Inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos
Gimli: 13th Company Space Wolf
Legolas: Eldar Ranger
Gollum: Some minor chaos fiend
Elrond: Eldrad Ulthan
Boromir: Imperial Commissar
Riders of Rohan: Cadian mechanised infantry
Goblins: Mutants and zombies
Orks: Chaos cultists
Uruk Hai: Black legion space marines
Uruk Hai siege troops: Iron Warriors
Uruk hai berzerkers: Berzerkers of Khorne
Eomer: Colonel 'Snake' Stranski
Treebeard: Venerable Dreadnought
Ents: Dreadnoughts and Titans
Theoden: Lord Castalan Usarker E. Creed
Gamlin: Jarren Kell
Faramir and his rangers: Catachans!
Grima Wormtongue: Agitator Colonel Crimae of the Volscani Cataphracts (A.K.A. Traitor guard!)
The Ring: This is a toughy... but I'm thinking of turning it into a ring(no big suprise here eh!) with daemonic powers.
Horses: These are sooo outdated! Chimera's, Salamanders and Leman Russ tanks for everyone!
Wargs: Ehehe, every story needs some green, thus these will be Ork Speed freeks! WAAAAAAAGH!
The Ringwraiths: I'm not sure as of yet... perhaps some Necron Nightbringers or something sinister like that.
Isengard: This will most probably be a forge.
Helmsdeep: I've redubbed it to Kasr Sonnen to keep with the Cadian theme
But! I'm not going to Dwarf bash anybody here! (or in this case, space marine bash!) This will be based around humour and the gritty violence of the forty first millenium!
*The scenes are: The last march of the Ents, which almost made me cry of the beauty and the background music used. I've started to imagine what it would be like if Isengard was attacked by Dreadnoughts and Warhound titans...
And Forth Eorlingas, where the Riders of Rohan charge in their thousands to rescue Helmsdeep. (Rohans are a cool concept: Norsemen on horses with a celtic background. I know it sounds hard to understand for all you boltbrains out there! :D) Anyhow, I really liked the way the King charged out outnumbered and how Gandalf appeared on the hill, then the commander and then his legion. In a 40k manner it would be like this: Saint Gandalf on his Rhino, Colonel Snake in his chimera and a thousand Leman Russ battle tanks roar up behind them to charge the Iron Warriors... Beautifull!
