Its going to be pretty much like that for dude in power armour they wont be able to see behind themselves much either, you think with the helmets visors been the way they are and the large power pack.
So i doubt termie armours visual performance is much less then power armour and when you have a primarch in termie armour i can imagine them been nigh unstoppable, they're nigh unstoppable in power armour let alone termie, plus termie seems far more intimidating
Which might be why so many marines fight with the helmets off.

the visor of the power armour helmet is irrelevant they can still turn their heads to look around, something that is totally impossible to do wearing terminator armour, if your turn your head you simply stare at the inside of your armour, turn your head in power armour and you look over your shoulder. And i sincerly doubt that Primarchs armour is even comparable to Power armour, Jonsons armour was made by the Emperor himself, you can gurantee its better than terminator armour. And again if Terminator armour is the be all end all of armours, why wouldnt the Emperor and all the other Primarchs use it

exactly, some of the marines in the books iv read have taken their helmet of for exactly that reason

the visors arent irrelevent, they will still restrict peripheral vison somewhat. its like in 300 towards the end where the main dude(always forget hes name) takes of his helmet because it narrows his vision even tho he can perfectly see out of it and can turn his head, its the same kind of thing
and iv already mentioned that each primarchs armour would be vastly superior to reqular power armour

Maybe because it doesn't suit their fighting style- I agree that any armour made by the Emperor would be better than it's more mundane equivalent but I don't think Power Armour created by the Emperor would provide more protection than Terminator Armour, why would it?

Ok irrelevant was a bit much. And sure it probably does mess your peripheral up, point is you can still look left and right with a regular helmet on.

And i dunno, your probably right, originally my point was just the vision issue thing. I get that they all have this 6th sense and armour sensors, but ther still quite alot that goes on that this 6th sense and sensors wouldnt feasibly be able to pick up, and again i just always though Primarchs especially ones like Horus would personally want to know whats happening around them at all times without having to rely on sensors. But thats just my opinion, im not saying evryone else is wrong or even that im right, its just what i think.

End of the day aswell i think they put Horus in terminator armour purely for the look of it
