They look pretty good, as others have said would fit very easy as tau something or other.

Why exactly would a bipedal, anthropomorphic race evolve to have a protective carapace, but not one that protects the most vulnerable portions of their body and vital organs, lol.

And then not wear any kind of supplementary armor over it?

If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

Ah, another futile attempt to impose real world rules on a fantasy setting.

If I remember rightly from the original kickstarter, they were adapted to living/working in cramped caves and caverns - the armour was meant to be more to protect against the low walls and cramped spaces than against predation.

No idea why they haven't developed actual armour to go with it, though :p
