>Space marines just as overpowered in crunch as they are in the fluff
>however this is mitigated by the fact that the horus heresy destroyed so many marines and splintered the chapters so much that only one or two space marines can attend a war at any time
>monstrous combat unit on tabletop, operating as unit grind/distraction carnifex
>Imperium's main army is IG with Space marines as combat heavy terrifying HQ

It will never happen, but i can dream can't i /tg/?
>>
When I first encountered 40K I had the same thought. Marines as elite and hq options.

>needing to buy tons of useless mooks

So why didn't GW do this? It fits their MO.
>>
>>43101945
Hey i'm not saying it'll happen now of all times, and i don't think space marines deploy only to help IG i'm just saying when there's one of them they would have to

I just had an idea, relax

What a cancerous meme.

Just call it lore, since that's what it is.

>>43101996
>Semantics

I'll just call you a faggot, since that's what you really are.
>>
>>43101996
Go back to /v/ you moron.

>Fluff and crunch

What is the opposite of lore then?
>>
>>43101961
It's a stupid idea.

While a lot of it simply is inter service rivalry and elitism. I think officially they just simply don't get along well because they are simply two different in they abilities and MO to really be compatible together. Not too dissimilar to real world special forces and rank and file folders.

>>43101959
Because they already do that, except the mooks happen to be called "tactical marines"
>>
>>43101870
In fact, I thought about this for Chaos marines and traitor regiments, considering real traitor legions and chapters are supposedly low on logistics and twice as overpowered than regular space marines, so they only show up when a chaos incursion reaches its peak.

>>43101945
Oh hey look, some fucktard who doesn't like the Guard.

>>43102995

These. It was in White Dwarf wasn't it?
>>
>>43101870

Good job, you just bankrupted GW and killed 40K, faggot.

On the other hand, then we'd get to play grimdark USNC Marines, ODST, and get Master Chief for our LoW.
>>
>super-overpowered in infantry combat
>borderline invincible
>expensive

Represent spacemarines just like the fluff: as a weak-to-ordinary IFV/APC that happens to walk on two legs and fit through large doors.

Seriously, everything about marines can be copied by stuffing a couple ordinary soldiers in a light vehicle and refluffing it.

And for that reason, I don't think they need to be downplayed.
>>

Light vehicles would get rekt by Daemons, Chaos Space Marines,Tyranids, or Eldar.
