    Power Armor was all over Terra at that point. Wasn't sealed, and the legs weren't powered. Pure combat for melee.

    IIRC there was some lore in the past (might have been one of the Horus Heresy novels actually) that stated that it was actually bolters that were invented specifically to fight Orks (in any case it is established lore that Space Marines originally didnt use bolters, but Volkite weapons - sort of thermal blasters that are also shown in the Mechanicus game - along with assortment of other weaponry, bolters became standard issue only some time before Horus Heresy).

    I wouldn't stick to lore so religiously. Every time GW wants to sell new miniatures, they will not hesitate retconning the events.

    There's mention of power armor being around well before the current iteration. I can remember specifically mention of older variants being used by Thunder Warriors during the dark age of technology/age of strife (or something like that).

    *edit*

    It was during the unification wars:

    https://warhammer40k.fandom.com/wiki/Thunder_Warriors

    So nothing to do with Orks, and instead used by Man against mankind. And I believe there's mention of power armor as well before that from the old Techno Barbarians prior to the unification wars:

    This and the King Arthur game give me hope that there are still companies that can make good games. Not sure about the latest Pathfinder game, but this feels like going it's in the RPG turn based direction I was hoping we'd see after DOW2.

    The whole setting is basically Gothic Europe but in space. Obviously the power armor is just a knight's full plate armor you don't need to invent stupid lore to explain why it exists.

    Power Armour in WH40k was invented to give an edge to Emperor's troops over various warlords ruling the post-apoc, but pre-Imperium, Earth. It was called Thunder Armour then, and wasn't fully environmentally sealed.

    You'd think people attracted to a 40K game knew the basics of 40K.

    Mhm. Not sure if Mary Sue fits, but them being (virtually?) impossible to corrupt certainly removes a feature that can be extremely important for creating tension in this setting.

    (Unless with "grey knights are fucking 40ks mary sues" you mean they have sex with some sort other characters that can be described as mary sues, which would be news to me as well).

    they should use the faction relations system from chapter master, being buddies with the inquisition will unlock their special troops but will piss off another faction of the imperial imperium etc.

    Grey Knights have far too many problems to be Mary Sues.

    The main Mary Sue faction will always be the Ultramarines.

    Well, I do hope the gameplay is decent.
    But it really looks like a slightly expanded mobile game. And the colour palette is atrocious.
