I can relate to this. Unfortunately the more recent versions of 40k make marines much more
powerful. Netepic and Space Marine epic from which it stems view the eldar and marines as they
were perhaps in the earliest version of 40k, rogue trader. Where marines weren't that tough,
but eldar were relatively very powerful and with a decided edge in tech. This view has been
watered down over the years and marines have closed the gap.
