Thread for art, official or not, and lovely looking minis.

Does anyone have the one of a couple deathwatch marines taking cover by a wall, one holding up his fist in a 'take cover' gesture?

>> No.37285088

Well, there are only so many space marine marks. I believe the one they use right now is Mark VII or some shit, and they all share the same basic design with small variations. If that's what you mean.

>> No.37285108

>> No.37285113

By 'faction' what do you mean? Different units of space marines?

They're all composed of the 7 major designs with different decoration and fiddly bits tacked onto them.

>> No.37285115

Oh. That never really bothered me before, and now that you mention it, it does. Huh.

>> No.37285172

like i said, i really know close to nothing regarding the universe. by faction, i mean like grey knights, etc., all of the space marine armor looks practically the same to me aside from colors and embellishments. why isn't there more variety? such as no shoulder armor on one side, and a large piece on the other, or drastically different helmets, etc.

>> No.37285345

Partly because in the grimdarkness of 40k, tons and tons and tons of technology has been lost, and innovation is heresy which is a big fucking no-no. The armor design they use now has been in use for literally thousands of years (I believe mark 7 was invented shortly after the horus heresy 10,000 years ago).

Furthermore, it works exceedingly well. There's little reason to improve something that's so tried and true. Removing one pauldron just for looks means you're vulnerable on that side, for example. Your helmet can't be -that- weird because it has to work. This being said, there are certain helmet designs that are rather unusual - I recall some ultramarines with a sort of eagle-design there. Think of ours soldier's helmet design. The one the US marines wear today are actually quite similar in design to the ones the germans wore many decades ago in WW2

Lastly, if you want variation, look to Chaos. They have a bit more variation, because Chaos is, well, chaotic and it literally fuses the armour with the warrior within, warping them both in the process. This usually means spikes. Lots and lots and lots of spikes.

Hope that answers it.

>> No.37285412

cool. thanks

>> No.37285425

I'll try to post some more pics of the different models, they are more different.

Modern space marine armor is mostly Marks 6 and 7, while 8 is a prototype that's just an improved version of 7.

Here we have Mark 2 'Crusade' armor, the original model of power armor used by the Space Marines ten thousand years ago.

>> No.37285476

Here's the Mark 5, 'Heresy' armor, a rushed design made to be very modular and able to be built and repaired with almost any parts.

Used during the Horus Heresy when supply lines broke down, usually built my Space Marines own production facilities rather than the actual forge worlds because they couldn't get reliable supplies.

>> No.37285516

Mark 4 is considered to be among the best still around, built at the height of the Imperium just before the Horus Heresy, and has many advanced systems that have since fallen into disuse, it is the most common of the pre-heresy armors still in use today, despite the fact that only a very few groups still know how to make them.

While still very effective, it has mostly been supplanted by the new designs by weight of numbers.

>> No.37285584

Mk 6 is the much beloved 'Beakie' armor, its real name is the 'Corvus' pattern.

Prototyped during the Heresy and deployed in limited numbers, it was standard issue for some time after the Heresy, but is now only a limited run production.

>> No.37285601

I thought the Corvus pattern was in production before the heresy.

>> No.37285632

Mk 7 is the modern day standard issue, and is the most common production. When a new production facility for space marine armor is set up it's almost always going to be tooled for mk 7, though the older patterns are still produced to different degrees, mostly 6.

6 and 7 have many similar parts and the helmets are interchangeable without modification. Marks 6 and 7 are the most common of all power armor suits.

>> No.37285640


Just before I think the Raven Guard got a limited run of prototypes, during the heresy it was being deployed by the major forge worlds while the ones more distant had to make do with 5.

>> No.37285663

Here's what the next pattern was going to look like until GW decide nah.
I think after the Raven Guard tested it, it was sent to legions in limited numbers. I remember that Garo fellow wearing it.

>> No.37285688

MK 8 is the latest suit, just newly designed. It's basically a simple upgrade of Mk 7 intended to solve some of the problems that suit possessed. However despite being nicer in many ways it is still only built in very limited numbers and usually relegated to squad commanders.

To clarify, 6 was being designed during the Heresy, prototyped before, and deployed during. The Heresy went on for a long time, it wasn't a short war.

I hope this was useful anon! There are several other smaller designs, limited run, and designs specific to a single world, especially helmets.

Where is the MK1?

>> No.37285802

Mk 1 'Thunder' armor isn't actually space marine armor.

It's a totally outdated design used on ancient earth, isn't environmentally sealed and was used by the thunder warriors, the emperor's original gene-engineered warriors. They were basically proto-marines.

It was later renamed mk 1 to remember their actions, but was utterly inferior to everything that followed.

Although the model is clearly GW, so you could easily stick it in a Marine Army (particularly as a Veteran/retinue member of an officer/CM and be golden.) They are rarely used as ceremonial armor or heirlooms for a chapter, or at least as prized components of composite suits of armor that are actually more effective.

One might also say "Oh, yeah, well, he got sucked into the Warp, and came out now. So yeah.".

While one would think that ceremonial armor might not be used on the battlefield, stupider things are done by Marines and Non-Marines in terms of well, everything.

You could also say "Oh well, it LOOKS like Thunder Armor, but that's a conceit. It's Artificer Armor with an archaic theme, for Reasons." Or it could be Thunder Armor with Artificer stats because of gradual upgrades and repairs, or because it was the bestest suit if Thunder Armor ever, worn by the highest ranking Thunder Warriors.

That would work, thunder armor is basically semi-powered carapace armor that doesn't even have proper support for the legs, the pic I posted is probably a top-tier suit honestly, they're noted as being maybe better than scout armor but not much, those who still have them either venerate them as ancient relics, or only wear them in non-combat ceremonial situations.

Better than shirtsleves if you absolutely must use it, but nothing you would want to use if compared to any of the other marks.

>> No.37306424


The term 'Blackshield' first popped up during the Horus Heresy as units of marines from traitor legions painted their armor black and renounced their former legion names, calling themselves Blackshields and fighting alongside loyalists.

Therefore it's highly likely that the Deatwatch began as an amalgamation of loyalist marines who's legions had turned traitor, giving them a new purpose. This is a larger scale of what Malcador did with his Knights Errant, and considering the Knights became the Grey Knights over time, it's also likely he created the Deathwatch for a similar purpose.

>> No.37306460

Custodes aren't unkillable - they were present during the Siege of Prospero and several were killed by the Thousand Sons - and those are the Ghal Vorbok (or however it's spelled), the first and most powerful Possessed the Word Bearer's produced. So, quite a way from a "shitty brainwashed chaos marine."

I'm in two minds about the 3.5 edition codex. It was one of the most flexible and customizable books GW has ever done, with loads and loads of very flavourful units and options, but it was easy to abuse and pigeonholed the Legions into stereotypes which they're still trying to escape to this day - just look at how many people think Night Lords are "the Legion with all the Raptors" and not "the Legion that focuses on terror tactics".

The current book certainly has it's flaws, but I don't think it's nearly as bad as a lot of people think, especially when it's combined with the Daemon codex.
