Tau in the movies…well almost!

December 4, 2012 ·

I picked up a cheap DVD, Hunter Prey (actually in Poundland, everything is £1) over the weekend, it turned out to be a great little sci-fi movie, clearly made on a “micro budget”, but well worth picking up.

The main reason I am mentioning it here on Warhammer Tau is that the make-up design of the aliens in the film bares a strong resemblance to the Tau.

Hunter Prey - Look familiar?

Hunter Prey - There certainly is a resemblance...


What do you think?

Man I saw this film a while ago and considering the budget it was pretty good. Did anyone else notice the AI technology and plasma based battle rifles, each time I watched it I saw anther similarity to the TAU. We spread our knowledge to the stars and do as our leaders instruct without questioning

I picked this film up a while back. Yes, the similarities to the Tau are uncanny. It's slow to start, but once it gets going, it's actually not a bad film!
