Anybody else remember the horrible ultramarines movie they released a couple of years ago?

I have seldom seen such a complete screw up as that.

Minute 24:25 - The Banner doesnt fall!!!! Thats what 40k is about <3 That 10 seconds of movie gave me the chills
also, it has a great soundtrack

It was Dan abnett who wrote the script.

Still don't get the plan that a single chaos Prince would charge macragge, seems a tad suicidal.

He doesnt have to charge, but think about it

A demonprince, tarned as a astartes, simply walk into the chapterfortress of macrage and can do whatever he want.

open a warprift, destroy holy relics, even cut the lifeline of Roboute Guilliman himself!!

That is a quite good tactic, one deadly blow right to the heart of the enemy without him suspect something.

Not really, he would be discovered the instant he got near Tiberius. And as I recall it he pretty much got figured out the instant he talked to the chaplain.

you have to remember that we talk about astartes here.... i dont think tiberius or other high ranked "staff" is sitting around in the fortress all the time. They are space marines, their duty never ends, so it is quite possible that the major part of the chapter will be on epic quests all the time.

second:

Ultramar are around 500 worlds. he doesnt even have to go to macragge itself. in a space marine costume he could go from world to world spreading chaos inside the empire.
And i dont think that PDF forces would raise arms again an ultramarine before them. as long as he holds himself a bit in the shadows, he could do serious damage

I thought it was still made up of 11 worlds. But yeah no where near the 500 that existed during the Horus Heresy.
