Personally I am looking forward to this game (please don’t bring the complaining to this thread) and for me the icing on the cake would be to have our Space Marine armies wearing the marks of armour that we choose rather than just Mark VII and Mark VI for assault squads, Mark III is my personal favourite and I don’t think it would be difficult for a few of the model and texture artists to make four bodies representing Marks II-V, three jump packs (Mark II and III share jump packs and power packs, MK V uses the MK II jump pack but not power pack) one chainsword, two bolt pistols, one flamer, one plasma gun, one heavy bolter, two lascannons and four bolters. I would be willing to buy this or a Horus Heresy skin pack as DLC if it also converted all the vehicles to the relevant marks.
Also an interesting feature would be randomised armour sections (shoulder pads, helmets, purity seals and so on) much like various mods have done in past dawn of war games, many portrayals of space marines in illustrations always strive to add little parts or differences to their armour that marks them out as unique in what I think is a symbolic attempt to prove the point of space marines as the “one soldier per thousand worlds” army (also please don’t complain about “Relic doesn’t care about the lore” there are hundreds of other threads to say such things on)
In any case I wish the Relic team the best of luck with the game.
What are your opinions on unit customisation or even Marks of armour?
