For the Warhammer 40K fans out there – and those who look forward to when grunts wear armor that will power itself instead of weighing you down.

Typical of all 40K armor models. Body proportions are not realistic. Thought it is a Cool recreation of Tactical Dreadnaught armor, in the game the wearer is a massive human mutant. Thereby recreating a 1:1 scale armor you end up looking like a terminator with a disability!

Yeah, you have to go back to the old lore (early rulebooks, citadel journals, and issues of White Dwarf) where it actually states that Adeptus Astartes were over 8ft tall. Space Marines should tower over non-altered Humans by over 2ft, and Terminator Armor should put them at nearly 10ft tall.

Obviously they need to use lighter materials in this costume as it is clearly too heavy to walk around in and not look silly.

Or you could dial down the geek just a little and think that this is a hell of an effort on the maker's part. The suit looks fantastic, lots of clever little details and if you're into the background (and I am) then extra kudos for the Imperial Fists stylings.

I'm surprised to see silly stuff like this on Kit Up!, but it's a lot of fun, so good job fellas.

That was a pretty awesome remake. Imagine having a company of Astartes in Afghanistan today with dreadnoughts and land raiders and terminators

Can anyone tell me where to find the story arc on the WH books? They look like an amusing way to kill some time, but I (really) like to read series in order.

There are so many story arcs in Warhammer and 40k its not even funny haha. I think anyone would appreciate the Guants Ghost series though, which so far there are 3 Omnibus' containing 3 or 4 books in each one. Its a really great way to start off, or you could go with how everything got fucked up in the 41st millenium and start off with the Horus Heresy series which takes place 10,000 years before everything else. I love either one. Gaunts Ghosts starts with the omnibus "The Founding" and the Heresy Begins with "Horus Rising"

Having been a fan of "Starship Troopers" ( the BOOK….the movies are an unmitigated piece of KRAP!) I'd like to see the flying suits and the energy weapons….and….the 'Talking Bombs'. Now I will vent; my impression of the 'Starship Troopers' movies is this. IT is as if a Hollywood producer was walking through a book store, saw the title…and then said "That's a GREAT TITLE for a movie"….and then never read it. COME ON! 23rd century and the movie guys are ON FOOT! Firing rifles the size of a tree trunk!? The BUGS fire plasma balls out their ARSZES….make NO allowances for trajectory relative to the planet's rotation….and knock spaceships out of the stratosphere?

apparently the director never actually finished the book so take from that what you will.

If you want a really good book on power armor and the relentless intrigues of war; then I recommend Armor by John Steakley. http://www.amazon.com/Armor-John-Steakley/dp/0886

Very good book that puts it all into perspective. The theory that every weapon/system is equaled by another weapon/system is in full play.
