I read a handful of gaming blogs, many of the warhammer 40K. One thing that I see again and again is Space Marine Hate. Oh they are cheesey, over powered, blah blah blah blah blah. I will say this up front I play Space Marines, Codex marines in fact, I have never walked over my opponent due to a cheese filled list. Why? Because I am not a douchebag. I have seen other army lists that are so cheese filled they should come with crackers but I notice these don't get the same amount of hate because they are xenos lists. The popular theory that Xenos is harder to play. I cry FUCKING BULLSHIT! You know the difference between Space Marines and Xenos, Space Marines are well rounded. They do nothing amazing and everything OK. They are the Mario (ala Mario Kart) of the 40k universe. I have noticed that each Xenos race has a specialty and is devastating as long as you use their strengths. Dark eldar hit hard, fast and often but have shitty defense. Tau have AMAZING ranged capability but suck in hand to hand. The list goes on.
I feel that players of 40k in particular really want anything else to blame their loss on than their own playing. It wasn't my fault the dice hated me, it wasn't my fault that army was OP and cheese, or it wasn't my fault that army is just stronger and more bullshit. Grow a pair and shut the fuck up and play better next time.
Also I am not defending cheese lists, what I am saying is hate the douchebag moron who created it, not the army itself.
Space Marines do not create cheese, bad players do.
Till next time, cry havoc and let loose, well me!
