About Space Marine
You are a Space Marine, one of humanity's elite warriors, the last line
of defence between mankind and its enemies. Through extensive genetic
modification, psycho-chemical conditioning and years of rigorous
training that would kill a normal man a Space Marine becomes superhuman.
When one of the industrial 'Forge World' planets where humanity creates
its greatest weapons comes under attack and the thousands of imperial
soldiers stationed there are overwhelmed, the only thing standing
between this planet and its total destruction is your Space Marine. For
