A few months back a GW designer jokingly said something about the Xenos being added so that the Space Marines would have more opponents than just other Space Marines. Does anyone remember the exact/correct quote and who said it (and when/where they said it). I know we had a thread or two on the quote but my searchfu is weak tonight.

It is on a rumor post from a games day around the fantasy forums I believe. I remember what you are talking about, I just don't remember details :)

It says that now with tyranids, eldar and orkz under his belt does he mind being GW's resident xenos freak. "Not at all", says phil. "I've found my niche and I'm happy to fill it. After all, the space marines need something to fight against, and it can't always be chaos!".

Oh beaten to it.
