So, Just a quick question for you fa/tg/uys. If a space marine was walking around without his weapons and armor, would he look like a normal human being? For instance, if one of them came here through the warp, and had no way of returning, would he be able to blend in (for the most part) or would it be obvious he was different?

No because the majority of space marines are above 10ft, that is some kind of dorf chapter mutation.

The website the image comes from was a basic attempt at coming up with 'realistic interpretations' for everything in 40K. So, that involved shortening the Space Marines a bit.

Typically, they average at around eight to nine feet tall.

If it was just their size they might pass for human, but they have so many body modifications, even assuming no bionics, that it'd immediately be obvious

The first thing you would notice would likely be the size and the distinct acid/chemical odor emanating from its sweat glands and breath, possibly even the thundering steps caused by its enormous weight. Next you would likely notice the unusual nature of its bone structure in that many of its bones are very different through either fusing into interlocking plates or just being larger, denser, and made of ceramite. Closer inspection might begin to reveal unusual structures in most of the parts related to senses, vast amounts of scarring, slight variations in the marines skin pigment and coloration depending on light levels, mechanical augmentation, and nodes/plates jutting rudely from beneath its skin.

Black carapace is the last implant to be put in and it's put in when the Marine is fully developed, after which he joins the ranks of the chapter.

And to add the (generally pointless, space marines eat brains to learn memories and all that) common sense approach; marines have to interact with regular human stuff all the damn time, from cities to spaceship corridors. Being gigantic above and beyond their listed 7' average height to the point that fans inflate them to would just make it a complete arse to do anything. It'd be like Scotty banging his head on the bulkhead in Star Trek 5, constantly, but with more structural damage. And no-one wants to be anything like Star Trek 5.

Marines are 8 ft tall. 9ft in armour. They are
proportionate for their size and would hulk over any imperial citzen. Their manner would be completely different as well. They would be alert, un-talkative and very pious when they do talk. They would probably be very arrogant as well and very smart. They would also be supernaturally strong and supernaturally quick.

It would be immediately apparent that a space marine was not a human.

i agree with that not every space marine is a humongous giant some are allmost human sized but on the taller end of the spectrum.

if we take all human species that are accepted as humans into account we still have ogryns that are even larger than space marines and ofc the navigators that are capable of trumping most space marines in height

but when you compare the regular guardsman with a regular spacemarine the guard will reach up to its shoulders without armor.

Space marines have special organs that generate synthetic hormones and suppress (among other things) Testosterone. This is a small part of why they must start getting implants so early, although it's not something that, in the past, they couldn't overcome (they have no real idea what they're doing anymore).

Yep not in hell. There's never any actual reason to fight with a chainsaw instead of your handheld auto-firing mini-rpg launcher. It may work in-game but it's dumb.

Even if there were,
1. Being a smaller size means you get more power/cross-section and less power is expended on supporting the body. Smaller creatures make better lifters and jumpers. Since there's absolutely no reason to have massive leverage when they use power weapons that disrupt enemy armor structure and chainswords instead of just big chunks of metal, the former would be better. Slow is never better in actual combat and big is slow by definition since muscle contraction takes more time and does not provide more power/weight for longer muscles.
2. Even if you wanted leverage you could add it by giving your weapon a shaft instead of making the guy a massive target. Or add another layer of armor and artificial muscles/engines which is more efficient even by 2014 standards instead of putting on human muscle.

Sometimes marines have to power down their armor (EMP hazards for example) - unaugmented non-marines could not move in _full_, _space Marine_ power armor (don't bring up Sisters).

Marine reflexes are crazy-good, which makes their strength necessary to make the most of it.

Also, they need the endurance and energy storage of such powerful muscles. Sus-an alone probably requires such bulk to make long-term survivability (with usefully short reanimation times) possible.

There's more to muscle mass than just being fukhueg.

Endurance -> cardiovascular condition. When did you last see a marathoner who was the size of a barn door.
The insane amount of muscle actually consumes more energy and puts more demands on their limited energy supply.

Also if their armor weren't so stupidly huge it might be movable without being insanely huge, or you could just drop the pauldrons, or maybe they could put in some faraday shielding.

No. Muscle contraction happens by successive sarcomere units shortening. Adding more in the longitudinal chain does not actually increase the force of contraction. That's why muscle power depends on cross-section only while creature mass depends on the cube, and exactly why smaller creatures have more power per unit of mass. This is the real reason why insects can lift something equivalent to us lifting a house.

Yep this is in a fistfight situation. There the only armor you have is your own muscles and bones and having such as heavier arms counts for a lot. They're also very likely in different shape.

In a situation of ballistic combat and powered armor this is completely different. You have as much weight and power in the armor as designed. The power/mass ratio is greater for smaller units making them more mobile by nature. Furthermore the ballistic characteristics are better for smaller units: compare how difficult it is to make a breastplate vs a helmet. Not to mention the innate being a bigger target and smaller people being easier to maintain in general both medically and nutritionally.

Modern military doctrine favors mobility. We could easily make heavy armor for soldiers; this is not done not for cost reasons (every lost soldier is a big deal these days) but because they actually reduce efficiency and combat ability. Historically the age of knights ended when they changed into hails of arbalest and later gunpowder fire and died unceremoniously.

For a futuristic space marine mobility, defense and speed is an even bigger deal. Close combat shouldn't even be considered. Using it to break armor? Phooey. The US bunker buster program's plan is not to drop a chainsaw on the enemy bunker, ffs. Shaped charge explosives deliver so much more force there's no comparison.

Any real military would want clones of the Master Chief (disclosure: I don't play Halo, just know the character) rather than a Space Marine, given equal weapons technology.

"I say, old chap, I'm asking for permission to use our tanks inside the hold of this ship, since it's overrun with daemons." [paraphrased]

GW stated SMs are at least 7'0 without their armor. This is taking account that men react differently to the changes the gene seed instills and this many SMs are gigantic compared to their brothers, like the chapter masters of the Salamanders and Minotaurs.

I honestly would enjoy a work if two chapters with completely different views concerning the value of life were forced to work together for a mission in a rebelling planet with loyalists and traitors on each side. The conversations of civilian causalities, human rights, cultural differences, oppression from a greater force, torture and exterminatus would be interesting to hear. I can one chapter feeling sympathetic to rebels if the Imperium did screw them over, while the other chapter is all about duty above all and would absolutely merciless to the enemies of mankind.

The precedent is of course zombie movies, which are usually about everything but the zombies. Not that I necessarily endorse zombie movies being soap opera bullshit, but it at least demonstrates that the idea is workable.

The human drama of ogryn vs ratling vs psyker vs commissar vs NCO vs CO vs grunt vs POG, just in the IG, is itself at least as interesting as the actual fighting.

I can't relate to SM too well so there probably has to be at least either some fighting or inter-chapter interaction going on, but the Librarium, as a place where the outcast psyker-mereens interact with the mortal psyker freakshows, sounds like an interesting place to me. Then you can deal with the librarian(s) not being able to fully form a rapport either with the humie psykers or the other merenes, and so forth and so on.

And of course, the motley crew of a Chaos warband, RT operation or Tau & Allies clusterfuck provides unlimited fodder for entertainment.

Since apparently CWE, corsair, and DE have functional relationships I can imagine something like that vaguely working, sort of, although I can't really imagine anything involving Dark Eldar being pleasant or uplifting (they are, afterall, "pure evil in their most elemental and sickening form)... without people deciding its an affront to canon, anyway.

A space marine would look like a very fit average sized human with modifications (and maybe a bit on the short side). Warhammer 40k humans are stunted, puny and weak from starvation, exposure to pollution, and genetic mutations. 8' in 40k Imperial measurement is closer to 5'5" in modern feet.

If Orks or Tyranids or anything without tech invaded modern earth, we'd tear them limb from limb.

>would he look like a normal human being? For instance, if one of them came here through the warp, and had no way of returning, would he be able to blend in (for the most part) or would it be obvious he was different?
I'd say it'd be pretty obvious that they are different due to the black carapace and basically looking like an amped up version of Frankenstein's Monster in general.

No, your crotch is where humans balance. A lot of martial arts like akido/judo etc, work by slightly tilting the center of balance. If their crotch is disproportionate to their body, it would probably throw of their center of balance.

Seriously, if you ever see somebody looking like that just talk to him and see how much of your preconceptions are correct.

You never see them without their armor, and for the most part their faces are like those of other humans, but for the rest, unless they have been badly injuried they should look like something out of matrix humans.
