I think that the reason so many folks dropped off is that this HAS become a
defacto E40k list...

It may be CALLED the Space Marine list, but check the message traffic and
draw your own conclusions.

Still, there's a goodly number of posts that cross the SM-TL/E40K boundries
- stuff like modeling terrain, painting figures, some strategy discussions.
It's true that I'm not interested in the problems with E40K, but I figured
it was worth sticking with the list for the positives, and I make damn sure
that anyone who wants a SM/TL question answered gets an answer!

As always
