Yes, when i first started i said "OMG space marines they are teh sex, but my first army was tau as i started gaming as soon as they came out. Then i had necrons who seemed invincible but were actually really dull. Now SPACE MARINES ARE AWESOME in plastic and metal form, i are love my dark angels.
Also i figured out, a few months ago, why ultraQUEERmarines where all over the place, because they don't actually have a codex, they have practically no special rules. Whereas, dark angels, blood angels, black templars have loads of exclusive stuff, the ultraPOOFmarines have a special tank, a guy with two power fists and tyranid hunters. But don't feel sorry for them, they're too busy with all that man love they have to do.
