Default Poll: Do you collect Space Marines, want to, or avoid them like the Plague?

(note: this I put in general just because it would be better to do a poll like this here, since most people who have no intenton of collecting marines wouldn't visit the marine forum in the first place)

I am just curious about the general concensus of the players of this forum when it comes to collecting Space Marines. Obviously they are GW's flagship seller, and so much fluff has been directed to them compared to other races its not even funny.

Anywho, vote away, and discuss if you like.

I used to be those 'rine boyz but no, I got tired of the emperor mumbojumbo and went Ork, we don't need no stinkin' king, we just fight to live and live to fight! Right ladz?

I now avoid them like the plague, unless they're chaos.. I plan on going chaos with my current ultramarines, making them more sinister and an evil color scheme.

Where I play there are waaaaaaay too many space marine armies. It is seriously lacking in variety, and is making the game a bit boring at times. Whenever someone shows up with Orks, I'm like, "Pleeeeeease let me play against something besides space marines!"

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

I wouldnt collect a Marine army if my life depended on it but i am currently buliding a scout army. I despise Power armour in all its forms (even chaos although i do have some but it just seem to strong). My scout army does not even have a shread of power armour in there at all. As a matter of fact not one save is better then 4+ lol.

I would Like Marines more if they were more gohtic, less angel like, and the models reflected this with robes and icons actually engraved on da armour, you can do this yourself but you need skill many dont have

I have a lot of respect for the marines. I also know that they can suit many different styles of play. The thing is, I have a bit of a penchant for individualism. There are simply too many marine players for me.

Also, I considered myself a bit of a tactician long before I played warhammer, and I wanted a race that would reward strategy to the extreme. I didn't want something forgiving, I wanted a sword that would cut me just as easily. I don't care so much about winning, as style and satisfaction ^^

I'm considering playing Dark Eldar. Possibly but less likely normal Eldar. That will show what kind of nutcase I am. : (teasing, of course)

If I wanted to set up my pieces and just roll dice, I would play Monopoly or risk. :
