How are you not getting this? In the spirit of facetious hyperbole, yes.So, let me see if I get this right.
"Space knights, blue with gold trim" = generic and uninteresting
"literally just some Russian dudes/brits from the 1880s, but with ray guns" = totally original and they hypeist shit ever.
The vast majority of black library novels are space marine wankery written by no talent hacks, so no surprise there then.A distinction without a meaningful difference, and in the case of the vast, vast majority of the books, entirely wrong.
Not saying that GW should abandon Space Marines, i'm arguing that if GW hadn't pushed a decade of Space Marine bias onto their IP maybe their other lines would be just as successful.Sure, it could be, but it also might be an expensive bomb, and companies don't like risk. Given that other factions that get newer models and more support have yet to topple marines from their position, your position that they could do so if only GW threw yet more resources into them and this time it will work seems ill-founded
Abbaddon was first captain of the Sons of Horus and one of four members of Horus' super secret club/ council.And Calgar's model was just as old, as were the ones for like half the marine special characters, and both of them have gottten new ones made recently. Your point?
And Horus didn't choose Abbadon to lead the black legion, Horus had been dead for centuries by the time no-arms got around to founding the legion. I'm starting to doubt that whole "no, I've been playing since 2e" claim of yours.
And which Calgar model are we talking here? Because there have been three in the same period Abbaddon had one.
For the record even if i didn't play in 2nd ed. my points are no less valid.
SureSure you did. Every army's players always say they have the crappiest and oldest models and need an update, and you're all full of shit since you're not the SoB players, who actually have the claim to that title.
Seriously though, 2nd ed. metals are better than 3rd ed. plastics.
P.s. i don't play Chaos either.
P.P.S. careful, you're getting a bit mad on the internet.
