That space marine guy has obviously got the same ideas of war as most marine sergeants 8Y. Wear huge, near impenetrable armour over your entire body yet leave your head, one of the most important parts of the body, fully exposed to firepower and shrapnel :rofl. Always seemed a bit weird to me heh.
It does look pretty awesome.
That Space Marine dude would be trouble though - he couldn't hide behind anything, given the likely bulk of that armour.
But I guess it wouldn't matter, as we wouldn't be able to feel any of the hits either!
Which I guess just means everyone would have to aim for his head, further supporting Seasonreaper's point. I've never understood the no-helmet policy either.
With paintball you don't generally want hard things in places where you are likely to get shot. Hence most tournament players wear gel filled elbow/knee pads etc. This is to encourage bounces as they don't eliminate you. A suit of power armour (no matter how cool looking) will cause practically every ball that hits you to break and thus put you out of the game. So in a strange paradox power armour gets you killed quicker in paintball
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
ohhh...never mind. I always thought W40K + paintball gun = Apocalypse
