A question

Can i ask why does the Backpack of a Chaos Space Marine Power armour differ from that of a regular Space marine?

Does it have something to do with the type of armour the Traitor Legions were equipped with during the Horus Heresy, if so does that mean they have kept that design and further manufactured it?

Endeavour 19:09, 23 August 2007 (CEST)

The traitor legions have not changed the armour they wear since the Heresy but technology in the Imperium has changed, so the loyalist armour has evolved. Most likely that the warping effect of the warp prevent a lot of them from even removing their armour and those who can I would think would not want to despoil themselves with the 'traitor' armour, as they would see it. As to whether they continued manufacturing, most probably, as we know new marines are being created (by Fabius Bile) and as such a continuous need for new armour is required along with the constant demand for spare parts to fix armour damaged in battle etc. Hope that helps :) --Jonru 21:12, 23 August 2007 (CEST)

Pictures

Sorry, but some of the new versions of the pictures look, well, a little nasty. Coloured pics is a nice idea, but not esp required if the article is about equipment where colour is not relevant and may in fact hinder the clarity of schematics. Replacing a Jes Goodwin design pic with the seemingly ubiquitous B+C colour template is also questionable. Thoughts? --Mob 16:22, 8 February 2009 (UTC)


I just did what was suggested.

Wait, what?

I noticed some inconstancies here... The article says that MKIV Armour was designed after the Great Crusade, but the Horus Heresy series clearly shows people (specifically mentioning Sejanus as having worn MKIV) wearing it during the Crusade's last days... So, um... Should someone fix it, or what...?

Or did the article mean what I said? I thought it meant after it was over.

Updated information from Imperial Armour Volume Ten - The Badab War - Part Two

It has come to my attention that most of the information about the Astartes Power Armour is outdated. Most of it comes from White Dwarf 129 (UK), which was published in 1990. Imperial Armour Volume Ten - The Badab War - Part Two (published in 2011) contains updated history of the Mark 3 through Mark 8 armour variants. I plan to change the descriptions of these armour variants using this updated information. As a side note, a Black Library representative directed me to this The Badab War book for updated information on Astartes Power Armour.
