Here’s a fantastic transcript, detailing the origin of Games Workshop’s Space Marines.

It is a court transcript from the onoing legal case between Chapterhouse and Games Workshop.

Follow the link for Bob Naismith’s deposition. Thanks to Andy Chambers for this link.

Bob Naismith had a hand in designing the very first metal and plastic Space Marines such as RBT01 and RT01.  He also designed many of the original Rogue Trader miniatures such as the Adventurers series.
