In what sort of a situation could a Space Marine ever be caught without his armor and weapons? Let alone an entire Deathwatch kill-team?

I'm going to GM a less than entirely serious DW game the next week and I had this idea of cultists attacking them while naked and unarmed (the Marines, not the cultists), and could use for some ideas on how to make this work.

Also, if I had a couple cultists steal their armor and weapons and clumsily try using them against the Marines, would they have to destroy all that stuff for the taint they got afterwards, or would it be enough to give them a good wash and scrubbing and perhaps a prayer?

....yeah, going to have to ask you to step off of the internet now.

Power Armour can be produced pretty easily, it's just a slow process largely because they ritualize it. Remember that they give Power Armour to near all Sisters of Battle as well as a whole ton of inquisitors, they're not just for marines.

Terminator Armour is harder to produce, and a lot slower, only a couple of forgeworlds have the STC's working so whilst they can produce them, most marine chapters don't have a steady access to treat them as the most sacred of relics.

Blow up their armory.

Power armor isn't cheap, but its available, and anyone can use it.

Witchhunters codex, regular human inquisitorial storm trooper (compare to imperial guardsman) one trooper may be a veteran for +10 points (veteran imperial guardsman) and be given any equipment form the witchhunters armory.

Witch hunters armory, power armor.

Terminator armor is more expensive, and vastly more rare, it also used to be available to regular old human dudes as "artificer armor" in the OLD deamonhunters codex. Iirc, they can even get teleporter homers.

So, the armors and equipment are treated as sacred directly relevant to how hard they are to replace, but by and whole any idiot can pick them up and use them effectively.

So all the above are entirely possible, but would be rare or unique circumstances.

Untrue. Astartes have initiative 4 because they are Astartes, -not- because of their power armor.

There -are- power suits built for astartes to accomodate their special body, however its the same 3+ power armor everyone else gets.

It isn't special at all guys, the marines themselves are.

AT BEST, you are within your rights to rule that -most- suits of power armor are -tailored- for astartes size.

The same way their weapons are a bit bigger and heavier.

In Example. The bolt pistol I give to my commanders is identical in fluff stats and function to the bolt pistols used by space marines.

The only difference is the person using it, and, possibly, the tailoring.

Or maybe something like one of them stupidly messing around with a finicky old Plasma Pistol, and screaming bloody murder when his arm melts. (This would be especially likely with the dodgy, old pattern ones Chaos Marines have. A human that suffered a mishap with one would not be happy.)

Things like Noise Marine weapons, and Power Weapons also generally seem to have a real potential to me for mishaps. The first because they might say, shatter your eardrums and possibly most of the bones in your arms if you didn't anticipate the vibrations, or adjusted it badly/couldn't take the NOOOISE, and the second because Power Weapons are a lot like Lightsabers in terms of the mistakes you might make. (The most prominent image for me is a Cultist displaying his bravado in the same manner as the Arabic Swordsman in Indiana Jones...

As far as I have read in fluff sources, I can say this seems more or less true. the Inquistor and Dark Heresy kind of background stuff tends to suggest that the main dividing line is just that Marines are so bloody tough. you can punch through the armor maybe, but they don't care. You do that to a Sister or relatively normal inquisitor, he probably dies. The marine gets annoyed and punches your head off.

In the Eisenhorn novels, for instance, Eisenhorn throws down with an inquisitor with Power Armor, and the guy is relatively invincible except against stuff like a power sword. When he got nailed decisively, he died,but small arms did jackshit.

I remember reading in an old WD short story about the Ultramarines that the 4 hours of sleep wasn't even required by the Codex. It was simply something Chapter Masters did as a sign of kindness to their brothers.

And the 15 minutes of "free" time they get a day is considered to be frivolous and unnecessary by most Codex-following masters.

Basically.

Now depending on the space marine in question, their armor may be entirely too large for "stealing" it to be even feasable. But thats a judgement call.

Does power armor automatically fit itself to whoever is inside? Is it easily resized and calibrated? ETC are all things to think about and tell your players what are cans and can'ts.

ALSO, i read the armory, and a previous anon was right, artificer armor =/ terminator armor. However. Non Astarte humans -can- wear terminator armor. Specifically some inquisitors.

So an astarte with terminator armor, versus some special marine with power armor engineered to 'plug into him'. Would be about the same as comparing a guy with a ford superduty, and a guy with a mercedes benz.

I'm positive there is armor that gets tech priested for the comfort of some marines, but it comes off the assembly line standard. Mind you, it would be plus size standard, but still human standard.

That would be very clumsy, most cultists would probably die inside that armour before even touching a marine.

Very little canon actually backs up that claim.

Their weapons can be large, but pack the -exact- same statistical and "fluff-wise" punch as their counterparts.

In example, i read a book about an ithikan(sp?) snake, and this lady he was with commented that his pistol was about half as big as one of her arms.

Heavier, yes. More sturdy so that it can withstand the rigors of enduring the kind of combat a space marine sees, yes. A shotgun to her, what was a pistol to him? Yes.

Break human limbs to use it? No. Its the same bolt bullet, the same pneumatics. The same exact -power armor-.

It is not "space marine power armor"

It is just "power armor" that a space marine is wearing, and made in his size.

And while they are -all- big, most of the fluff is exaggerated, and when -actual- dimensions are listed, they average to be 1.5-2x the average human in mass and size.

Which means a human whos just pretty big, may be compatible, on the scrawny side of a space marine's body type.

It even goes on to compare that sisters of battle -who also wear power armor- don't recieve the same benefits because they don't have this same -organ-.

The carapace itself, is special. The armor, is not.

There is no Speshul Spess Marheen power armor. A space marine simply uses the same power armor everyone else does -better-, because of his own personal organs.

I take it to mean that both are special. You need special power armor to interface with the special implant. It's 90% similar power armor, but it's still a little bit different.

>> No.15431289

how about:
Freshly implanted Alpha Legion Cultist, soon to be space marines, need to capture their own set of armor as a rite of passage. Tricking the marines into some sort of ritual where they need to be naked/unarmored (bathing/hunting, like described already), meanwhile the wannabe alphalegionairs capture the armor/weapons.

Is actually a brilliant idea. Have the players RP their characters getting their first shot at real sleep in a long time for whatever reason. Then, hand them pre-made character sheets for a motley crue of the best the local chaos cult has to offer. Then drop the marine equipment in front of them and queue up yakkity-sax in the background as they kill themselves without even waking the regular PC's up.

What the fuckity-fuck-fuck did you just say?

You made a point and then contradicted your same point with the said-same point?

Marine Power Armour IS DIFFERENT for the simple fact it can interface with the Black Carapace. It MUST interface with the Black Carapace.

Normal Power Armour does not interface with the Black Carapace as no one who would or could wear it will have Black Carapace.
So it will not have the systems to interface with the Black Carapace because they will never be used.
And so, it'll have a different method of interface.

So the armour will be different.

It isn't that hard to understand.

tl;dr, SMPA is different.

Space Wolves can sleep as long as they want as well, they have ZERO responsibilities after becoming blood claws when not on duty. Seriously, they don't even have training, first thing Ragnar and Sven did after becoming blood claws was go yeti hunting for the fuck of it.

No mental conditioning besides basic Imperial knowledge and how to use their implants. One of Ragnar's fellow Blood Claws accidentally killed himself while cleaning his bolter because no one bothered to tell him to unload it before trying to take it apart.

Not everyone has common sense, I was once handed a broken gun to repair, I repaired it, then the guy came back, checked it out a little himself (taking the time to load the fucking thing), then had me prove it was fixed, while it was still loaded, and I was in my living room. I was half-tempted to simply shoot the guy for being so stupid.

Perhaps after a long campaign where all their wargear has been sent to the forge for repairs?

Especially this, as there's likely to be Sisters of Battle bathing on the other side of that wall, that may likely break in when the combat is loud enough, to preserve their peaceful springs and not to see if the Astartes are properly proportioned as rumored... Honest.
