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 manīs 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:

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
