I've just installed Chaos Gate on my computer successfully (I think; it's an old, temperamental game) and have created this thread for two reasons: 1) for people to volunteer themselves to be a Space Marine in my campaign playthrough, and 2) for people to discuss the game in general (any advice/tips are welcome).

If you want to become one of my Space Marines (and quite possibly suffer a humiliating, painful death as a result of my command), just post letting me know. Give me a name for your character (mine's Justimus Davimus for example) and what position you would like to fill (as well as preferred weapons). You can also provide a character-profile for me to use, such as you wanting to be running upfront, sniping from the rear, healing teammates etc.
There are 5 Tactical Squads (incl. heavy or special weapons (so flamer etc. or lascannon etc.) trooper), an assault squad, a devastator squad and a terminator squad. Each squad has 5 Marines including a sergeant and 4 marines; some of whom can have heavy/special/fancy-close-combat weapons as desired.
I'll update the thread with your achievements, kills, awards and even deaths (I can respawn/recreate you if there's space).

I'm afraid we're all full-up and can no longer accept new recruits, apologies! Feel free to watch the thread and join in the fun nonetheless, though.

If you don't know what Chaos Gate is, it's an old (1998) turn-based, squad-based game where you play as a small force of Ultramarines fighting Chaos (Word Bearers, Cultists, Daemons): think of it as a more customisable, more personal/close-up Dawn of War, consisting of 5-20 Space Marines and occasionally a vehicle. This video demonstrates the gameplay of one of the missions: skip to 1.32 to view the squad screens, which is basically where I'll customise/create you, then from then it just goes through the mission.

I don't know how loadouts go, but power sword and storm shield sounds about right, but if shields aren't allowed like that a bolt pistol will be fine.

This seems fun, maybe you could use game capture to post the missions for us all to watch?

I'll take the Devastator Sergeant position, someone has to bring up the heavy guns after all, can't kill those chaos spawn with the "little guns" can we?

Sergeant Caninus Securim Fulmen

Heavy Bolter & Melee Weapon if applicable, though I don't think Devastator can take any given they are burdened with their Big Guns, but if not that's fine.

Also can you give them any other options, like an Iron Halo?

Dreadnought's don't appear for a while, so I've thrown you in as a standard marine in the Devastator Squad. Here's to hoping you die a particularly gruesome death in the meantime...

Narp. I'm afraid - beyond the assault squad and grenade options - options are fairly limited. Don't think I can give you both the heavy weapon and sergeant position, so you'll need to choose one or the other methinks, apologies.

Don't happen to know of a free game capture-thing-a-me do you?

Updated the OP: thanks for the volunteers guys.

Part way through the second mission, no casualties yet, although Otto Von Swanzstucker III has been wounded.

Silver, you signed up too late to be given a heavy weapon I'm afraid, but you'll get one next mission. I'm not sure I want to give you such a weapon though - I'm pretty sure you've not hit a single thing yet! I've moved you to the point man to at least catch some bullets!

Rasputin was given a heavy bolter (usually to be Silver's) this mission and has been racking up the kills. Maybe not entirely fairly though...
I threw Doctadeth into Tactical Squad II until his squad is filled up and he was lucky enough to find a missile launcher at the beginning of the mission. With which he proceeded to shoot some... BARRELS! TWICE!

More in-depth updates to follow later, I've been taking notes as I go, whilst - of course - leading from the front (much to Securim's dismay it seems).

Whoops. Looks like I forgot to give Swanzstucker a heavy/special weapon. He's still been getting some kills though.

Vortigern just caught a frag grenade too.
