Nothing like real life video to show how impractical power armor from games like 40K and starcraft actually is.

Well, when it's an un-powered, and presumably heavy construction meant to look like Power armor, sure. The "real" thing would be much more maneuverable and, well, powerful. At least, it is in my imagination...

And likely draw and quarter you as it doesn't actually fit any real physiology.

I'm amazed that they spent, what I can only assume was a LOT of time, making these, and yet they all have identical numbers and vanity paintings on them. Perhaps they're digitally doubling them? It's hard to tell from the video quality.

I'm also amazed at how many people with what seem to be incredible artistic talent spend so much time, money and effort on making something from somebody else's mind. Not even necessarily borrowing and modifying as artists will do, but out right copying down to the tiniest detail. I've seen this with Star Wars, Halo, etc. etc.

If I had that sort of talent I'd be making my own stuff. Each to their own.

Artistic ability and talent doesn't necessarily translate to creativity, or the ability to realize "ideas" without a concrete reference.

Which is why Space Marines are so BIG! Duh!
