Figuring that some people ought to have gotten their copies by now I was thinking of hearing what they have to say about it. Thinking about buying it but just want to make sure it's not totally fertalizer.

My search-fu didn't show any existing threads on this topic.

Check in the News and Rumors thread, starting at about page 66(?). Here is a link:

Personally, I enjoyed the movie a lot. It is definitely low-budget looking, but it is a lot of fun and the fight scenes seem pretty rewatchable to me. I have a larger review near the end of the linked thread.

Probably because it was manufactured in the US. At least, that's what the sleeve says.

Ultramarine is a glorious first attempt and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but left me unsatisfied and wanting more. Abnett delivered a good suspense story with several crowning moments of awesome. Even if the captain's return did make me think of Optimus Prime and the attack on Autobot City.
HOWEVER. I hope the next movie - AND THERE BETTER BE A NEXT MOVIE - is written by McNeill. Suspense is good and all, but it's just not quite mindless enough for what I want from a Warhammer movie. Suspense movies is they really lose effect if you're not really watching them - painting or gaming at the same time ruins the effect. Not so with warporn. Compare Pitch Black to Chronicles of Riddick. Same characters, same universe, totally different tone to the movies and a totally different experience. Abnett delivered Warhammer's Pitch Black. That's good. I enjoyed it. But I want the next one to be Warhammer's Chronicles of Riddick.
