Does anyone else find themselves not being able to actually like space marines? No matter what I do, I end up finding myself feeling like they are kind of overdone and cheesy, especially when I try to think out what kind of list I would make if I had to make an army out of them.

I always end up going back building ideas for what I would do with the Imperial Guard, my hands down favorite faction.

Maybe its my aversion to paladin archetypes. I always prefer the normal guy fighting for what he is worth, and possibly dying, to the holier than though indestructible warrior.

So, IG pics, will dump a few. Its a flashlight.

I keep wanting to make a hammer and anvil-esque army to start building, focusing on a command squad and two vets in chimeras meant to camp points with flamers, with air support and tanks or artillery to pound things to dust while my troops defend the point / cower and cry for their mothers. Problem I keep running into is making it small enough to be a good starter list that wont cost too much (At least by this games standards) and that uses units I like. I made one 1850 I like, but its rather to big and expensive for me to start at, so not sure how to go lower.

Nope. The only thing that ever gets me about:

>overdone and cheesy, especially when I try to think out what kind of list I would make if I had to make an army out of them.

is the use of named special characters in army lists. Dat shit drives me bonkers.

Getting a LR Demolisher in the mail soonish, and then I try my hand at painting, option one, is I fail, or hate painting, and then relegate it to a book-case ornament, or I find it find, and start buying more. Then I have to finalize a list, but at least I can still change stuff until I actually have the models.

While they use bastardized Latin to represent High Gothic, and English for Low Gothic, they're actually nothing like the languages they represent

High Gothic:
>It derives from the common tongue of the time, an assimilation of English, European and Pacific languages which developed over many centuries in the American/Pacific region.

Low Gothic:
>Low Gothic is a bastardised version of High Gothic, combining additional elements from several of the oriental languages of ancient Earth. Over the millennia it has changed greatly, and now bears almost no resemblance to the tongues from which it derived

To me, that's their big appeal. But then again I don't take the setting all that seriously, not /tg/ levels of silly though, that's almost as awful as super srs 40k.
