Called Eisenhorn, the show will be a collaboration between Games Workshop and Frak Spotnitz’s Big Light Production (they’re the peeps behind The Man in the High Castle), and will blend, fantasy, sci-fi, and crime drama as it follows the titular Gregor Eisenhorn (who, I understand, is a very popular figure in Warhammer lore) and his team of investigators as they hunt down aliens, heretics, and daemons who want to bring down the glorious Imperium of mankind.
The series will be based off a collection of books authored by one Dan Abnett, who will also be working on the show. He had this to say:
"Gregor Eisenhorn is a relentless force in the dark future of the Warhammer universe: A destroyer of daemons and a purger of heretics, implacable, powerful and dedicated. But the appeal to me, from the moment I started writing him, was his complexity. He is not the simple, ruthless hero he appears to be. His battle with the Warp leads him into dark places and forces him to question his duty, his understanding of the Imperium, and his own identity. With Eisenhorn, it’s not just the adventures, and they are certainly vivid: it’s the journey he takes to the very limits of what he is and what it means to be loyal."
…alright, I have to admit, that kind of makes him sound like more of a cliché than before, but people seem to like him and I’m 100% behind anything that brings the messed-up Warhammer universe to broader audiences. More people need to be exposed to this awfulness.
