LordOwlingtonIII Wouldn't he just be a vanilla Space Marine with an above average WS (seriously, ONE hit with the rifle butt deals more damage then the ENTIRE magazine!?)

Hooobit Brings back fond memories of Tsavo highway, a troop carrying warthog and a couple marines carrying all kinds of hurt....... Good times.

Stella Cadente if master chief was in 40k shouldn't he have a special rule like
"why do the bastard NPC marines keep doing better than me"
with any force that contains the chief and marines (not space marines) the marines automatically gain +3 to hit and wound/penetrate, while the chief suffers and equal minus

thats based on the fact that once you give a marine a sniper rifle or missile launcher or whatever, even a frelling pistol even if your driving at warp speed they STILL manage to never miss a target, or while your in a major firefight about to kill the last enemy a marine will almost always get the last shot, leaving you standing there over a dead body you failed to kill like a sponge

Cyleune I read the stats and immediately thought "End of 40K?"

Stop playing games on "easy", lol. But even I found the campaign to be a bit short, almost similair duration to gears of war.


When you compare the books (so the actual Spartans and not the player controlled version in the games), the Spartans seem to be more acurate in shooting and have more prowess in combat than the average 'nilla marine. The iniative should be high because they seem to have a much lower reflex time than the Space marines.

you should always use the books (maybe Halo:wars aswell)as the base for the UNSC units because in the books you have the halo universe and characters as bungie wanted them to be, not controlled by players of different skill and playing style.

That would depend on whether you are looking at a SpartanII in the vid or a Spartan in the books, but, again, they wouldn't be better or worse than a marine, they are different.

I did take the stats from a UNSC Fandex i made, Spartan 2's were a 0-1 elites choice, ODST's were akin to storm troopers, marines to veteran troopers and UNSC army was the regular guard type.

I might actually post it.

Where as space marines come across more like a broadsword, big, heavy armoured, hard hitting and designed for conquest/ war.

Both are super soldiers but both have different roles to fill. They would work pretty well together if given the chance.

something more like this seems right,
BS-5 WS-5 S-5 T-4 W-2 I-5 A-2 LD-10 SV-3+/3++

If you consider 4 hour single player with 4 maps for multiplayer, for a different game no less, a blessing I have a bridge to sell you.

I would also play some of BorderLands. $10 DLC that added anywhere from 4-20 hours of gameplay per DLC. There were 4 of them. Maybe they should have sold them as $60 games as well.
