Space Marine tactics basicly revolve around raping the enemy (AKA lightning strike).
A lot of sense.
As my SM army's name changes to The Rapists...

Flayed 0ne Astarte "was" a godess of war...Adeptus Astartes would basicaly mean "Gods good at making War"...its not astarte's (plural)....its astartes (title)...the "s" transforms the "name" into a "likeness"...not a literal translation...

Baron Spikey I'd imagine it would be extremely rare for Astartes aspirants to not be virgins, considering the ages at which they're recruited the opportunities (or even inclination with how young some are chosen) would be few and far between.

zas240 Well didn't Lukas the trickster once "share 12 beds in one night", and such earned him a "near legendary status among the women-folk of Fenris"...so probably not a virgin.

Hooobit They are drawn from the best warriors amoung the population of the chapters homeworlds, so i'd say maybe not.

Giant Fossil Penguin I think it's got something to do with virginity as well. I could be very wrong, but Astarte was a virgin (?had something to do with virgins) as well as a goddess of war. So, the Adaptus Astartes are the Emperor's legions of virgin warriors. Avlong bow to draw, but not outside the realms of possibility

They probably got the name from some random name generator or something...
