The hugely popular tabletop wargame Warhammer 40,000 is set in the far future and played with 28mm miniature figures, that at times are supposed to represent Space Marines - 7-foot-tall superhuman warriors. In preparation for Comic-Con, a few fanboys decided to build life-size, wearable replicas of the Space Marines' power armour. To find out more about this awesome project, click here.
What I love about this video is that it gives you a proper sense of scale - showing how awesome 8-foot-tall armoured warriors look next to mere Homo Sapiens - and is something I shall bear in mind next time I'm writing a story about the Space Marines.
Unfortunately, not all of us have the means to create life-size replicas of power armour, but anyone can now experience what it would be like to be a Space Marine by taking on the role of Brother Nabor of the Imperial Fists Chapter in my new Warhammer 40,000 gamebook HERALD OF OBLIVION.
