Space Marines is a science fiction miniatures wargame created by A. Mark Ratner. There were two editions. The first was published by FanTac Games (1977) and the second by Fantasy Games Unlimited (1980). Both versions include artwork by David C. Sutherland III.
The FanTac version of the game included conversion rules for the original Dungeons & Dragons and Metamorphosis Alpha. These were later removed in the FGU edition.
Stan Johansen created a line of 25mm figures for Space Marines, some of which are still in production as of 2011.
The Space Marines universe became the background to FGU's Space Opera role-playing game.

Famous quotes containing the word space:
“True spoiling is nothing to do with what a child owns or with amount of attention he gets. he can have the major part of your income, living space and attention and not be spoiled, or he can have very little and be spoiled. It is not what he gets that is at issue. It is how and why he gets it. Spoiling is to do with the family balance of power.”
—Penelope Leach (20th century)
