I know the knights of Caliban had lots a training all tehir life but they are teenagers. It just seems off to me and I cant put my finger on it, you know?
Space Marines recruit from worlds where children are taught how to fight before they learn how to walk.

40k's 14 is our 21. For Astartes, anyways.
