|Apostle||SonOfStan, on your last point I completely agree, if GW and their BL writing team are successful we will all be twenty years older before they finish the Heresy. As I business owner I understand lasting as long as you can. However I know if for some reason GW starts having financial issues they will fly through the series to make more money. That's how nearly all companies work. Sadly the final battle of Terra is years and years away, I would bet thousands on that.|

I'm honestly glad that 40k isn't any more depressing. I don't want to read 'Game of Thrones in Space' (although it'd be interesting if Martin wrote for the HH, if only to find out that Horus and Sanguinius were secretly lovers the ENTIRE TIME) I like how the whole series gives you the feel of the Imperium constantly in the midst of a 10,000 year long last stand. Lots of heroism and bravery, surrounded by constant lost and a general sense of inevitable doom.
I often find myself wondering how on Earth they'll ever wrap the story up. No business will last forever, and some day in the grimdark of the far, far future GW will have to close up shop. Will they tell the end of the story before then? Or will there be some kind of apocalyptic intellectual property rights battle that prevents anyone from ever letting us know what the effing Hell was in that book on Mars in 'Mechanicum?'

|Beaviz81||Well 40k. tries to pander to everyone (just look at the Tau blatant pandering to Asian stuff). And I think they do that well. I mean they know who their main buyers are that's the group 12-20 male.|

I know I sure as hell am not part of it now. I'm about 30 years too late for that.
GW was never my "gateway".
GW was never my "only" gaming experience, nor was it ever an exclusive arrangement.
I started playing 40k when I was 19. I stopped for a few years in my mid 20s and then got back in for about 8-9 years in my late 20s. This time period was also way outside the demographic for the game.

Don't get me wrong, I think Space Marines are the most boring part of the entire Warhammer 40k story as they are as "bling bling Paladin" as they can be, but I can understand the reason why GW takes the stance on them that they do. If they outnumbered everyone, or were even on the same level numberwise, they would be nothing special. It's the fact that they are so few, that gives them their "heroic stance".

Not only that but are we really expect to believe that a single company can overcome an entire planetary system with billions of folk fighting it, a Space Marine Company, even a Terminator Company would not last more than a few weeks in combat here on a circa 2013 earth, a few tungsten/ceramic core anti personel rounds would kill one in a minute.
