Warhammer 40, 000 – Space Marine

Words can simply not express how excited I am about the new Warhammer 40, 000 video game: Space Marine.

It’s…just…so…GLORIOUS! So far I’ve made sure to get every notable Warhammer 40K-title for the PC, including Dawn Of War (with expansions) and Dawn Of War II, and also Fire Warrior. Space Marine will not be an exception. The action and graphical style seems to be extremely true to the Warhammer 40K universe, just like we, the fans, want it. I only have one thing to criticise from the trailer: “I do not fight for victory,…”? Whaaaght??! To admit defeat is to blaspheme againt The Emperor!

I understand what they mean, but a Space Marine just wouldn’t say that, especially not an Ultramarine. They have undying faith in The Emperor and the survival of the imperium; to admit that they are fighting a losing battle would be considered heresy. That’s all I’m saying. Will I care if that quote is transferred to the actual game? Hardly.

And we’re off!

Finally the time has come. The funds gathered through years of agonising labour (and the occational lawn-mowing) has finally paid off. Paid off in the form of a respectable amount of plastic and metal miniatures, to build not one, but two Warhammer 40 000 armies. The proud and zealous Black Templars and the sinister metallic army of the Necrons are both about to get just a little stronger.

This is pretty much what I got:
Black Templars
Commander, The Emperor’s Champion, High Marshal Helbrecht, Terminator Chaplain, Command Squad, Terminators Close Combat Squad, Black Templars Venerable Dreadnought (Forgeworld!), Space Marine Battleforce, Space Marine Combat Squad, Scout Squad, Devastator Squad, Land Speeder, 2x Space Marine Bikes, Land Raider Crusader, Black Templar Chapter Upgrade.

The Nightbringer, Necron Lord, Pariah (just one so far), 3x Immortal, 3x Flayed ones (6 models), Warriors Squad, Necron Battleforce, Wraith, Destroyer, 2x Tomb Spyder, 2x Heavy Destroyer, Monolith.

Not bad, but I still need some more transport and heavy support for the Templars and more elites for the Necrons.
