Pushed back?

I don't think they ever gave a date, or claimed it was closer than a couple of years off.

Looking for a friendly wargaming club on the Isle of Wight? Drop me a line.

Well, Marines kinda have to be part of it, or they are throwing away an entire faction IE CSM.

Yes Maarines are playable, I don't see how this ruins the game. It's not like they are going to be a true marine statline. Even if GW made marines as should be they woul have a 10 man squad take up all your points.

I should change my name to Number 1. Not because I am conceited but because thats what I always roll at inopportune moments.

i dont have an issue with them being in it, they just should not be playable, A marine would not just do the MMO things, going awol from the chapter to loot a dungeon would get them renegade status im sure.

From what I understand it is so far restricted to one system at start, and the only footage of the Marine faction has been of the Black Templars.

As to marines running around sending one to a planet isn't unheard of, or running kill team missions for a mixed bag if it ever gets that far.

All of THQ's games have only used the 40K source material as a guideline - they don't stick to it too closely, so in THQ's version of the 40K Universe it'll be perfectly fine to run around killing Grots, delivering their hats to the Company Captain or something along those lines.
