I was only being sarcastic

Having said that, I'm not too keen on the theory of copyrighting generic words, names and Ideas, capitals or no. Especially in this case, copyrighting "Space Marine" seems a bit like copyrighting your father's name and stopping him from using it in public.

Or copyrighting your last name and preventing your sons from using it.

To be fair, if you just call the guys in your story Space Marines as the actual name of their legion, then you should be punished for being stupidly unoriginal. So I guess they're actually doing us a favour by encouraging originality... by taking ownership of an unoriginal they used... *head explodes*.

Using the term "Space Marines" to refer to infantry who fight primarily in space isn't very creative, but suing someone for doing it because you did it first is complete and utter bullshit. Doesn't GW make enough cash screwing over their customers?
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

I have been boycotting Games Workshop for years. At first just to save money, but I've found more and more reasons over time.
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

Wow. glad I stopped buying Warhammer years ago. I wish Heinlein was still around, he'd smack those bastards into their place real fast.

Because, if you look really closely, the Ultramaroon in the OP is not real, but Computer Animated.
