like the pic, just that you got some facts wrong. first of all space marines dont smoke scout or not, second i dont think any current modle of of bolter has a stock as it would be akward to even use a stock because of there bulky armor. dont get me wrong i think your a good artiist just that it kinda bugs me that the facts are wrong.
seems people have took to talking complete crap on the same page as your sweet picture, as i am thinking about drawing up some space marine terminators myself this is a big inspiration. great work mate, now i shall check out your other pics
Space rine: "What's that jr.? A CIG?! BLAM THAT PIECE OF CRA-" Tactical Schwarzenegger Armor guy: "HERESY!!!!"
This rises a question... is smoking a heresy? Or do they even use those in the imperium... well, there are quite a lot of planets with varying levels of technological states... could be from one of those devolved societies.
The Imperium refers to cigarettes as Lho sticks, its in the slang guide at the back of the Imperial Guard codex. Space Marines would be immune to the negative effects but likewise would get no benefit from the nicotine so there wouldn't be much point to their smoking, but I'm sure that the occasional flamboyant SM does.
For some reason, the smoking scout seems a bit... odd. Space Marines are warrior monks turned up to 11, trained and augmented almost from birth to be the finest warriors of the Imperium, both mentally and physically. It just strikes me as odd that a space marine, after all that physical and mental conditioning, would willingly ruin his lungs like that - something a Guardsman would do, sure, just not a marine.
