k guys this might be a wierd idea, but im thinking of altering my Space marines, and terminators to look like the marines off of Starcraft? wat u guys think
I love how people all the sudden get crazy conversion ideas. Oh Oh Oh! I wanna make my imperial guardsmen look like sesame street characters what do you think? Oh Oh Oh!
Starcraft actually copied its space marine look from warhammer 40k space marines. Why copy an imitator when you already have the real thing?
I remembered hearing something. I was never a big Starcraft fan (Age of Empires 2 is much much better IMO) and I always remembered them looking like Space Marines in this game. Or similar.
I've heard theories that Starcraft was originally supposed to be a 40K RTS game.. marines = marines.. Toss - eldar (except cooler of course, more kickass, less crying and whinging about their sadness with hankies).
Then you just have to compare gaunts with zerglings, or RAveners with Hydralisks.
Hydralisks even shoot out of their chest cavity, exactly like raveners do.
Meh.. neither company pays me to protect or be loyal to their IP, so I personally really like both.
If the war by heavens gate released desire
In the line of fire someone must have known
That a human heart demands to be admired
Cuz in the center of the universe we are all alone
if you look at the title screen of starcraft, it has a GW logo on it (so I've heard, from an employee. It's been a while since I've played the game) and blizzard pays royalties to GW for being so similar.
in all honesty, putting a exposed marine face with a small clear bubble dome on him would look kinda sweet, and there's NO denying the SC Gauss Rifle looks sweeter than a Bolter..(LOOKS, not IS)
I think opinion is pretty split on naked faces and masked faces.
Personally, I really liked the masked ones. I tend not to like GW's naked face sculpts and the plague marine gask masks are undeniably clean.
The Gauss rifle is incredibly coool.. but, I dunno.. the bolter is kind of iconic
lol convert a chaos terminator with heavy flamers into a firebat =)
