Ahh, the humble Space Marine, unyielding servant to the God Emperor of Mankind. This is the hero that I have the most familiarity with – to sum up the Space Marine in a word? The tank. The Space Marine has a good selection of wargear to emphasise that role, with various regen or health bonuses. They can also equip wargear that lets them taunt the enemy, forcing them to attack the Space Marine, or another which causes lesser enemies to flee when used. In the higher up levels, you’ll get an amazing dreadnought to equip, and in terms of combat, you can go either ranged or melee. Another useful item the Space Marine can get is the Jump Pack, which gives them more mobility to get around the arena. Most of the Space Marine’s weaponry is aimed at single target stuff and non-counting abilities (Plasma gun giving hellfire grenade), the only weapon they have that’ll give you decent AoE ability is the Plasma cannon – not something I would recommend taking unless you are playing with an Eldar who has group teleport equipped.
