Were they created using the virus mentioned in Storm of Iron that also infects and corrupts a tyranid ship?
... No. Re-read your CSM codex.
"It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"
yeah, its explained right in the codex
They are just space marines who meld into their armor, and a whole lot more, with the help of a deamon.
dam obliterators rock! their fluff is great too.

I thought that they were just marines who stayed in the warp far too long, then changed into a being of the daemonic, with the memories of how the weapons of his reace works, he has ultimate power in any game, no matter the circumstances.
Then how come it is said that the Iron Warriors created them?
I dunt hink they did but if they had created em, then they must have released a daemon into them or somethin like that.

The initial 3rd ed fluf stated that Obliterators were just ordinary space marines which were infected with a machine virus transforming them in living machines... able to change thmselves to mimic any weapon they choose.

There's two ways of creating an Obliterator. One is to have a Chaos space marine stay in the warp for too long and mutate; this creates the Obliterators we use in games. The other way is to use a techno-virus, maybe it normally does the same thing, but in Storm of Chaos a modified version is used. Anyway, this is the 'forced' way.

IW created? no they have a "special" relationship with them....got to be IW to love something that size with that much firepower, once weapon for every situation...
thats why IW can have more of these guys then any other chapter...and yeah...
seems to think *i got to buy more Obliderators*
i cant tell how many times my Black Templars got kicked by IW because of these
and yeah, they are Marines that stayed to long (since some fluff about IW indicates that at least some marines where from the pre-hearasy days, id say these guys are to, beeing in the warp and maybe never left there as normal marines) and problably to close to the center of the EoT so they grew bigger and got fused with thier power armour, making them into huge slow moving things with loads of weapons, created from the memorirs of there days as SMs.
