Ah, weekend! After working too little and eating too much yesterday, I made it to freedom at long last. It was a very stressful workweek, and I am quite content to put it behind me and get on with the weekend.Speaking of which, due to posting about new releases, the next stop in the power armor countdown has arrived, and showcases the return to Warhammerville.
Adeptus Astartes Power Armor. Pretty much all of the stuff I said way back when we did the Adeptus Sororitas power armor post applies here, except instead of Space Nuns, it now encases hulking genetically augmented Space Marines. Game stat wise, they really rank about the same as Sisters of Battle, but a little stronger, tougher, and better in a fistfight.
A little bit outside the purview of an armor ranking, though something I do consider, is that the Marine himself adds to the effectiveness of the suit, and is also armed with a Bolter, essentially a type of super Gyrojet rifle. Plus points for genetically augmented walking tankism, minus points for being way less hot than space nuns.
