Should we really be using this name (Angry Marines) and color scheme since its was established by somebody else already?

There is a face book site, codex and Marine Armies painted up for Angry Marines already.

Kinda feels like we are just ripping them off to me.

No- we aren't ripping anyone off. You're not getting where the joke is from.


Angry Marines is a joke that they came up with on a forum called 4-chan. It's a bunch (like, a ton) of different people who all helped come up with it over time, no one in particular. Many, many different people contributed funny artwork to the idea to keep the joke running. It's just an internet joke among 40k players. The codex is a total joke in the same way if you read it, and is just tongue-in-cheek with some of the artwork compiled into one source. The facebook page for them is the same thing- it's for people who are in on the gag from 4chan and like the artwork. They have many other running gags, like the vindicare/farseer love story or Kharnn wearing a commisar's hat.

Our league name is basically the 40k equivalent of a pertinent pop-culture reference.

Ah, ic.

Yeah, I didn't read into it or see the joke. I just saw that when I googled it that there was a lot of hits with pre-existing content under Angry Marines.

If it is just a running internet joke then I take back my statement of us ripping them off, as we are just adding to the running joke.

Thanks for clearing it up for me.

Just finished reading the Wikipedia article on the angry marines. The "day in the life" is riotously funny.

Oh and I'll take one of those adamantine sack of doorknobs.
