Hey /tg/

I'm looking for powerful Warhammer 40k pics. Images that inspire and motivate and make you go "damn right!" and then promptly go out and and play the game.

>pic related

Preferably Space Marines, but I'll take whatever you got!

say what you will about the space smerfs, this pic is fucking bad ass, one of the very first i ever did see of space marines, even though people say he has a severe case of tiny head, i do believe it can be justified since he lost most all his body in the war against the nids and that he is more machine than man now, so he can be damn well any size.

They are wearing armour which adds width and height. Also pauldrons. Out of armour a space marine is meant to be 7 foot tall, armour makes them 8ish foot. A Primarch is meant to be about 10 foot tall UNARMOURED, and dah Emprah is even bigger. Because he says he is.

7' tall is average. There was an ongoing joke in the studio about how the 'average height' for marines seemed to steadily increase amongst the fanbase. 7' has canonically been the average height since they began the whole 'marines are super-modified super humans', with 7.5' being uncommon, and 8' being rare. But players have continuously added more and more inches to their average height over the years, with 7.5' being considered 'the average', to even now where most players seem to think 8' or even 8.5' is 'average marine height'. As a light-hearted jab against this odd fan-driven phenomenon, Jes Goodwyn drew a life-size sketch of a marine that poked fun at it. The marine's head is at the 8' mark, which players are quick to jump onto and shout about how 8' is their canonical height average. But they never notice the sole of his boots are at the 1' mark...

The artwork was not posted in WD, but rather in the Jes Goodwin's artbook compilation. It had other bits of interest like the original concept art for the necrons (including the current destroyer concept art), as well as the Hrud (which were originally intended to be space-skaven).

The reason it always gets called out as 'inaccurate' is because it doesn't mesh with the perceived cannon of the fans. Hell that's half the reason the life-size artwork was done that way, was to poke fun at that fact. There have been numerous cases where players have asked developers at GamesDays about what the average height of a marine was, only to sit and argue with them when they were told it was 7' and not their expected 7.5' or 8' answer they were sure they would hear.

Pic related is the scanned image from the artbook.

>> No.22716534

you are arguing over how tall a space marine is, which is the exact same as me arguing over how much a chicken weighs on average

if average is 7 foot, then by using a simple bell curve you will notice that some are OVER it and some are UNDER it

not quite sure how common a 6 foot space marine is though

It's been in a White Dwarf though,in the issue where the Space Marine Tactical Squad won the hall of fame that image is used.

Glad to find out the origin for that image though, works much better as a poke at the fans rather than a simple mistake.

When GW describes a Space Marine as being over 7' tall that implies the average is over 7', not that only some of them are.

The lack of full sentences and punctuation makes you look less intelligent, much like writing in all-caps.
If you're fine with that then more power to you, I however tend to mostly ignore posts like that.

>> No.22716603

Average SM height is around 8 feet, in armor, Primarchs are about 11 so Emps would be somewhere around 14-15ish I suppose. (Eldar are roughly 8-9, Necron Immos towering over everyone else are like 11-12)

>> No.22716625

considering your post, the latter part of this >>22716395 would seem more likely.

>> No.22716627

The emperor is never given an actual height, and there's too little information available about the custodes beyond the "even more powerful, and less character than marines". The Emperor could very well be just a super-psychic 6' tall dude in bulked up armor. But it's more likely that he's about the same height as the primarchs.

Yes, I understand that. In fact, that is exactly my point. After 15 years of using the same design, do you or do you not think GW will update it at some point in the future? If so, what changes will they make? If not, what do you think they want to preserve?

The reason they've stuck with it is probably because it either is iconic or that they want it to be.

The Space Marines are very iconic though. They've changed them to being more grimdark and got rid of the beakies but I doubt we'll see any major design changes to the basic marines. Maybe some with the specialist units in non codex chapters though.

I think a lot of it has to do with it being iconic. And it meshes better with the out-of-proportion heroic-scale miniatures the game uses. Kind of like how the official design-template look of the IG is still out of proportion to that of an actual human being.

its from a smaller persons perspective!


>> No.22716789

Actually, it's not. Like all armor (personal or even vehicular), the amount of armor varies greatly depending upon the location. Marine power armor is thickest in the shoulders (due to pauldron-syndrome) chest/torso, and thigs, upper legs. Namely due to 'center-mass' being the most commonly aimed at part of the body. There is no need to have 6" of armor on the soles of the feet, let alone the top of the head. Hence why there isn't.

This... would be painful for the dude with the powerfist. The fluid covering his eyes would instantly vaporize and because vaporizing lowers the temperature his eyes would instantly freeze, blinding him. It wouldn't happen in his mouth if he keeps it closed, because his body would give it some pressure, but the moment he opens his mouth, it too would freeze completely and probably kill him.

Not true. Heat is transferred (or removed from something) primarily due to convection. Since space is a vacuum, there is literally no convection taking place. Space is still REALLY REALLY cold. But the temperature will not drop anywhere near as fast as common sci-fi would have you think. Indeed the biggest issue will be the fact that your eyes, and blood vessels, will try to burst out of your exposed flesh.

As canon as that is, it really just amounts to being a derpy hand-wave to make marines even more special by allowing them to survive the vacuum of space for prolonged periods of time. The fluff explanation is pretty much on par with saying "I have a lead-pendant, therefore I'm immune to radiation poisoning". It works in context of the setting, but makes little to no sense in context of reality.
