Default The last stand against marines.

We all know marines, both loyalist, and chaos are the bread and butter of 40k, they are like bacteria-they're everywhere. they are by far the most popular army out there. thry get the lions share of everything- cool powerful rules, fluff, special characters/ units whilst the rest of the races pick up the scraps. its disheartening when the whole game-system is slanted in their favour, to the detriment of other army lists.

For one, i am sick of it. In general, i dislike marines as a whole. the only two exceptions are Space Wolves, and Salamanders, who have great fluff, and style in my opinion.

I have decided to make a stand. though i have space wolves, i may decide to sell them to a friend. i have decided not to buy into any more marine armies. we don't need another marine army. we are already saturated with them! its as simple as that.

So, i am going to do my part, and make a stand against the marines. no more for me! its the xenos threat from here on in.

I am curious, if any other board members would feel the same as i do. would you do what i propose to do? or will you just smile, nod and walk away. or are you not interested in it.

So, discuss:

They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

I'd burn them for the greater good! > Seriously though I would ac accept them as a nonchangeable constant in our minute futuristic Galaxyand socially discriminate them in my free time. If I had SMmurfs would sell them for what their worth and buy some Tau or Eldar. The bottom line is, is that I would say " you guys aren't cool enough to hang with Commander Cool, or be a part of the greater good. So scram!"

boycott the marines. the only cool chapters are the dark angels and the raven guard. just force a teporary boycott of SMurfs. i only play guard and tau anyway so in already ahead of the game.. the more people boycott SMurfs the more that the money will be equally displaced towaers a more deserving canidate.

Boycott the SMurfs!

I have a Grey Hunter unit, I used the custom bits from the SWolf sprue beceause they looked cool. The others are about to become poor mans' wraithguard with an alarming amount of tinkering.

Well Deadnight, After years of playing Marines and IG, I have left the fold for the Tau. I won't be buying anymore Marine/IG models.

Seems to me, the logical next step in your crusade against Marine armies is an all out war against Space Marines. Challenge every Marine player in your area and school them in the folly of their ways. Make it your business to beat every Marine army you come across. Then, and only then, will you have peace. ;D

Seriously though, I'm not buying in to the whole "space marine" cult anymore. It's Tau for me now. I'm with you Deadnight.

Thing is, with a site like Tau Online, by default the demographic here in all likelyhood consists of people who aren't adverse to Xenos armies anyhow. I bet the average joe-schmoe marine player doesn't even go online, and just plays the game and takes advice from over-eager GW employees. ^^;
