Default More Marines!!! Curses...

Is it just me, or are there more marine armies than ever before? with the release of the new codex, they've become even more popular, (and hideously nasty) and it just leaves me bored. you never see any of the "good" old bad guys, (eldar pirates, 'nids, orks, etc) just more and more variants on marines!!! is it the same for everyone else? :-\

everyone and their monkey plays space wolves here, or chaos space marines. vanilla marines are a rare treat!

Still, as much as we loathe marines, they are the biggest seller in 40k, and do have the most iconic imagery, and fluff to back it up. It seems to me that other armies are a secondary army to your first army, that being space marines.

*shrugs*

It would be nice though to see more armies that were not varieties of smurfs, or starcannon laden eldar forces.

and nids are becoming fairly popular now, with their new codex. there's plenty hivefleets around.....

I have noticed a lot more marine armies being called in my group. (Dark A. Iron Hands, Black Templers and Space Wolves already taken) but everyone pretty much relizes that one smurf is pretty much the nex smurf, so thougth our second army is smurf, we really just focus on our main army.

am back... what i'm saying is that it just isn't much fun pasting chapter after chapter of marines any more, i'd have thought that with the amount that us tau have killed, there wouldn't be any left, and the imperium would only have remembered them as a legend/myth.

This isn't a chat room, think of it more as a pinboard. You pin something up, then someone else will. The point is you don't have to be here the whole time, you don't have to let us know when you leave. Hope this clears things up a bit.

Yeh I wish they were a Myth
All 5 players that I've played have been Space Marines, and I got an invite to play another! Honestly, I'm quite sick of smushing power armour finatics, I'd prefer to fight a good Ork army (go Aun'Shi!).

Everyone has a marine army now. The Ork Player here just went and put togethe a huge Marine army. It is now very huge and well painted, but it's another marine army.

I now only bring my Tau army, I feel sorry for my pups but that is how it goes. I think I try something new with them. I might have to make about or 6 drop pods and just go crazy with em.

I have a Marine army, but like with my others I do the damn best I can to be origional and playing a unique style - the first incarnation of my Eldar army had no Starcannon below 1500 points, which is a bit of a clue where I'm coming from.

The new Marine codex has only two functions - magnetize n00bs, and force them to buy a rulebook.

Personally, I think marines are a good way to go after you have played with the tactically challenging forces (Tau and Eldar in my case), rather than a vehicle for brand-new morons who couldn't fight their way out of the Tac Squad box with another army.

the reason for this is that people are put of tau due to snooty tau players,
like me
i collect almost everything so i know why we get what we do,
for me it was because they are cool to make and play

It's funny that in see a lot of people compaining about how many people play SW. I am one of only 2 that play space wolves at my local GW. Ones a complete noob, and I am a veteran. what I see most at my store is either Tau or Korne. Tau which can take quite a bit of skill to play. Khorne which take no skill.
Thats what I see at my store.
