With BFG making a return, I am definitely down to picking up another Space Marine fleet.

And running a Space Marine fleet in the game on Steam, but that's another matter

I think I'll go Imperial Navy, and say that they're in cahoots with my IG force.

You know you want to write up some terrible guard fluff about how a Space Marine chapter is indebted to your regiment and agree to ferry them between battlefields aboard their battle barges.

Why yes, I think I do know...this.  8)

Please, the proper way to do this is to write terrible Guard fluff involving a paradise planet that's also a Forge World that has its own armoured companies, titan legions, and billions of elite troops under arms that's so important and wonderful it also has its own naval yards and sector fleet. Perhaps throw in a Marine chapter or two that wish they could recruit the Guardsmen from this planet.

And don't forget that it is the long lost Tanith 7th regiment that is also lead by a Colonel-Commissar and how he has the affection of a certain older Commissar.

However, I am hoping there will be more expansion fleets in the future. Tau would be a highly unlikely long shot but there's always hope. All depends on how well the launch goes and feedback on gameplay.

It'll be interesting to see if the old rules out of the Armada book will be compatible with the new rules when the game comes out.  That would allow people to still use the various fleets like Tau; Space Marines; and, as much as it pains me to say it, Necrons.

Necrons, like Space Marines, just didn't have much variety in ships. There's that one, that guy, him, and yeah. Even *Tau* had more ship types. Really hoping that's changing else said fleets will be very bland.

Space Marines did not have a variety in capital ships, but they had access to their own escorts as well as the ones from the Imperial Navy.  The issue I had with Necrons is that they really didn't have a weakness.  They were as hard to hit as Space Marines while being more survivable, and faster than Eldar.
