Space Marine was subtitled Epic Conflict in the War Torn Universe of the 41st Millennium, released in 1991 and brought the setting into the standard era of Warhammer 40,000. It radically revised but still fundamentally retained the same system, unlike the latter version of the Epic range. The new edition included Orks, Eldar and Titans in the basic rules. These and other new races were greatly expanded in the latter supplements.
