Oh, let's not forget that Space Marines are mutants themselves - albeit sanctioned ones. And the Imperium accepts abhumans readily, so do they accept cyborgs - as long as you're within a broad definition of 'human' (not veering too much from the Holy Human Form), you're fine. They only hate xeno & heretic scum :)

With so many unsanctioned psykers around, the Inquisition might not agree with that. And, it is very suspicious that you deny the presence of demons.  ;D

In either case, I think it unlikely that even an entire chapter of Space marines could pull an Exterminatus on Earth. It's just a thousand men and some ships (albeit powerful). Their space tech is certainly better than Star Gods', but still, they don't have a real war fleet.

Pfff... it only takes a hundred space marines to subjugate a planet. Everybody should know that! If you have Black Templars, you can even do it with 50 ;D

Also, Exterminatus is just some kind of bombardment, you don't need many men for that, just a ship capable of it. Of course, Exterminatus by chainsword would require many space marines, or, equivalently, again, 50 Black Templars  ;)

Yeah, keep believing the propaganda of the Emperor's dogs. The Emperor is dead! Long live Cha... or well, nevermind. :)

It's not necessarily a bombardment, it's the procedure of cleansing the planet of all life - by any means. My point is that Space Marines probably don't have such power; their chapters have little ships besides battle barges. They are meant to not be a threat.

lol I should have said "if often just delivered by bombardment" I still maintain that it isn't a manpower intensive procedure, and it is indeed something that marines are capable of carrying.

As to the "real" capacities of marines, that is indeed a tricky one. Pretty much all accounts have them performing feats well beyond what their numbers should allow, with little to no explanation as to how. It is very much preference that makes one decide if they are the bulwark (or the scourge) of the Imperium, or a relatively fighting-wise insignificant bunch of poster boys meant to inspire the humans doing most of the work. But that's not a debate for this thread, which we are happily derailing.

Back sort of on topic: I would love Dioxine to find a way to include them in Piratez as he did for other factions (if he hasn't already, but I don't know, and please don't spoil it!)

Black Templars' Emperors' Champion can do it alone - the other 49 are there just to make sure he's running in the right direction :)

Looks like a perfect replacement for the More Dakka Custom Shooty Gun. :P

Warboy recently allows to add more than one Ufo to Terrain Script but
how do you add more craft ?

Two brothers lost against a single Muton?! What heresy is this?!
