Only thing you're missing is the Astartes symbol on the front.

Nice scale. Great to see upsizing the shoulder pauldrons to XXXXL.
Good job.

I like that the armour looks functional and 'industrial'  ;)
Bravo!

This is how I picture the various Neo-Astartes Commanderies in this.

What i love about this pic, ist that  this version looks like it can move quick in combat and even move at all. If you take a practical look at the original armor, you will see that it would dramaticly reduce a man´s mobility.

Their title really bugs me. o3o

They're called Space Marines, but they don't act like marines at all. They act more like knights and such.

The Imperial Guard look way more like Space Marines, so it's like they both traded titles and it stayed that way, and I kinda find that stupid. :c

I think the Space Marines should be called the Imperial Guard, and vice versa.

S'why I like the Tau more. c:

Atleast the Tau aren't a bunch of filthy Xenos that popped up on the Eastern Fringes of the galaxy for no EMPEROR-FUCKING REASON!

Well, they actually are properly reffed to as Astartes and call themselves Astartes. I've always found the whole flaunting of 'SPEEES MEEHREEN!' to be fairly stupid when they don't primarily refer to themselves as such. It's also why GW attempting to copyright the term 'Space Marine' is bullshit when they have a much more original and cooler name than a terribly generic title as such.

As for the redesign, I love it. I makes the armor look modern without the extremeness of some redesigns where it makes them look like MJOLNER armor from Halo. The classic ceramite plates are still there, as are the wonderful pauldrons, but the stuff that previously didn't even look that good (the pipes on the torso) is vastly improved. Fonte's got another thumbs up from a stringent follower of the canon. You need to draw more of this stuff.  Post Above

This is what Mk. IX Power Armor would look like if the Imperium's technological prowess hadn't stagnated for ten thousand years. It looks Tau inspired almost. Freaking awesome.

Nice, sci-fi-ish design. Direction of just "fantasy battle in space" is horrible simplification if I was to state my opinion

I like seeing more of the workings of the armor.
The shoulder guard seems off to me... the height to width ratio seems awkward. ;p But that's just nitpicky.

I love that you reigned in the crazy 80's shoulders and this armor feels like it has more "crunch" to it, could actually see this in combat. He looks like he'd be able to lift his arms over his head AND turn his head. Bonus.
