SPACE MARINE

From Black Crusade Core Rulebook
The most impressive fighting force of the Imperium of Man, these Angels of Death are the most feared warriors in humancontrolled space. The corpse-emperor created the Space Marines to take his Great Crusade to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, to push the boundaries of human-space far beyond anything attempted previously. To lead these soldiers in their eternal warfare, the Emperor created the Primarchs, clones of his own genetic material and warriors of mythic proportions. The Space Marines themselves are genetically modifi ed super-soldiers whose genes have been enhanced by those of the Primarchs. As a result, Space Marines possess incredible strength, vigour, and refl exes. In addition, they have endured rigourous psycho-conditioning to make them fearless shock troops, merciless and unquestioningly loyal to their Imperial masters. Now the Space Marines, bereft of their Primarchs and their Emperor, their legions fractured into mere chapters, hopelessly guard the floundering masses of humanity from the teeming threats of the Void.
In addition to their training and genetic modifications, the Space Marines are outfitted with the finest wargear, weaponry, and armour. Their iconic power armour is the epitome of Imperial armour-craft. Worn as a second skin, the Space Marine moves swiftly and comfortably in his armour, as if it were little more than sackcloth. The reverence with which the Space Marines hold the boltgun is a sign of their intensive training. The boltgun is an indispensable tool in the hands of the Space Marine, used to protect mankind from the manifold dangers of the galaxy, without as well as within. The Angels of Death are skilled in all manner of warfare, in every theatre of war, in every style of engagement. They toil endlessly within their fortress monasteries and battle barges to prepare themselves for every possible combat scenario. As a result, the Space Marines are adaptable in the extreme, capable of changing their tactics at a moment’s notice to overcome any situation. There are few threats more dangerous to a Heretic than a Space Marine.
