There's no 30K section but the main thing I want to discuss is 30k space marine scouts I hope they look like the ones from the original lost patrol, that'd be awesome, modern scouts look gay, any thoughts?

There actually is a 30k section. It's under The Horus Heresy in the 40k section of the forums. I can move this thread there if you'd prefer? Otherwise it would probably fit just as well under General 40k, not General Warhammer.

EDIT: I have moved the thread to the appropriate section and edited the title to reflect the topic at hand to help attract more relevant discussion.

Heresy era scouts are a bit different to their 40k counterparts. Unlike in 40k, 30k scouts are not new recruits who have yet to earn their power armour and become full members of their respective legions, but instead veterans who excel at recon. In 30k they are known as recon squads and can either don modified power armour or recon (IE carapace) armour.

My guess is no they do not, though I'm having a tougher time finding the models your talking about. The images I do find of the original lost patrol, because GW remade and did a limited release in the last year, give me more of a Catachan vibe than space marine scouts.

How so?

I think I have some of the old mohawk scouts in both metal and plastic that came in the advanced Space Crusade box many years ago. They did look much better.

Not sure the new ones look "gay", though. Is there a strap-on or gay pride badge I'm not seeing?
vintage 40k always looks cooler Mohawk scouts are the best no question.

I just noticed that the scouts in that cover pic are from various different chapters. I never noticed that before, and I owned the game at one time.
Space wolfs wearing red? as well as the dark angel, blood angels always try to convert people to their vampirism:threaten:

Not entirely sure where your seeing Space Wolves in that picture. Its a mix of Blood Angel and Dark Angel scouts and possibly an Imperial Fist scout.

Also, like I told you before, not vampires.

The most central scout with upraised blade has a wolf head on his belt, and pelt around his waist.

Wasn't there talk in one of the White Scar HH novels of a central training depot from which initiates were posted to their Legions? I think it was Torghun wanted to go to the Luna Wolves, and was pissed he ended up with the scars. Something like that might explain it.

Ah yeah, there it is. I saw what appears to be a blood drop on his chest and completely missed the wolf sigil.

Blood For the Bloo...er...For the Emperor!!

Tell that to GW, every BA face with an open mouth these days has fangs. New BA Tacs, Assault Terminators, TDA Captain (Karlaen)...it's a sad state of affairs.

The Blood Angel reveals himself he's an insidious Khorne fanatic, looking to infiltrate and weaken the Imperium's resolve! You'll be hearing from the Inquisition...:threaten:

Easy tiger, I said it was a sad state of affairs. BA with fangs makes it easier for the uninitiated to think they're vampires.
they drink blood exclusively to the natural cannibalism of the space marine, nosferatu has fangs he's a vampire true blood angels don't have an aversion to sunlight or garlic but still.

Nope, they don't, they only drink blood on ceremonial occasions.

to the natural cannibalism of the space marine
Natural cannibalism? What? They eat the brains of their enemies on occasion as a way of gathering intelligence, and possibly surviving off the carcasses of their enemies on a prolonged campaign, but cannibalism suggests they eat their own. They don't.

exactly that's what I said.

yes they do and only orks eat brains, how is a khorne fanatic supposed to know about issues of the imperium, traitor?

I'm sorry but what the fuck are you on about?
don't swear at me the internet isn't one giant New York, besides my statement was clear enough blood angels are a type of human vampire.

What are you gunna do, build a space-wall around Baal and make the Sons of Sanguinius pay for it? :laugh:
He must of sent in a spy to steal the info from my captains log... :mad:
