On the user control Panel you can choose an avatar, that's all cool.
But 1 of the avatars is a space Marine? Did I miss something or is there a space marine in the game?

Hehe, that was part of an April Fools joke, we released the Space Marines as the "would be" thrid faction. But we like him, so he's still there as an avatar.

Space Marines comprise the bulk of the Space Marine Galaxial Confederation Forces. Generally equiped with HA-4286 Combat Power Armor-suits and PL-239 Assault Machine Guns, space marines are a threat to anyone that stands between them and intergalactic conquest. Protected by 5 inches of turbosteel plating, space marines stand practically invulnerable to the axes and blunt objects their Viking and Aztec enemies might confront them with.

The backbone of any successful planetfall, the Ion Canon is deployed high up in the atmosphere. Specifically designed to soften up any forms of resistance that could oppose the first wave of troops. As the ground assault unfurls, it also doubles as a highly effective artillery weapon.

Boiling down through the heavens, this concentrated particlebeam rains destruction wherever it smashes into the surface. Punching a nicely carbonized hole through any armored opposition with ease.

Originating from the orbiting weapons platform UF Valkyrie, this spacebound menace can strike anywhere on the globe within seconds. Making it as fast as it is deadly.

The power required for such devastation results in long recharge times before the weapon is ready to fire again. This turns the deployment of the Valkyrie into a more strategic choice rather than a blunt instrument of obliteration.


Would've been a pretty unbalanced fight though.. fun.. but unbalanced :D
