I'll join, I actually did a bit of groundwork for one a while back but abandoned it with all the ideas deep in my brain, nothing on paper.

One thing I would like to do now, though, is to decide:
1) Will it be based on each weapon and units capabilities in it's own setting?
2) Or will it be compared to the rest of 40k for statlines?

This will prevent, hopefully, another firefight like the one that broke out over Codex: Halo.

In the meantime, I'm off to start cooking up stats.

I would like to make the Protoss side.

Heres my ideas for how each race should work:

Protoss:

. Powerful Units.
. High Point cost
. Low Numbers
. Very Mobile
. Powerful in each units job (Anti tank, Anti Power Armour, CC Guys, etc)

Zerg:

. LOTS OF GUYS
. Low point cost
. Weak Units
. Powerful in CC
. Few Shooting guys, but are strong.

Terran:

. Very Mobile
. More Balanced then the other two races
. Easy to use
. Marines good a/g Zerg, Firebats good a/g Protoss, etc

Comments?

It seems pretty much spot-on, but Firebats are more a horde-killer IMO - not so much use against Protoss advanced armour.

Let's get started .

Protoss would have 3+ save. They got armour thats like a Wraithguard AND a shield!

The reason Firebats would be good a/g Zealots because of the mass of shots it puts in. And Also 1 Zealot can kill 4 marines, and 6 lings! Almost like a Space marine!

They are not WS6 - not by a long shot. That's reserved for Fenix, Infested Kerigan and the like. And the statline of a battlesuit?! Please. The rest seems about right, I was thinking FoF because of their bionics upgrade. We could just give them Powerblades and up their cost, since essentially that's their armament.
