Obviously this is a bit (read 'very') Fluff Nazi but if i see another bearded blood angel model i will off myself. Facial hair makes space marines look too human and aside from the more feral chapters beards should be the preserve of the rugged imperial guard. I am not even sure it is in the fluff TBH but i imagine the space marines either genetically have no body hair as it wastes hormones or that they ritualistically shave themselves, as is common with warrior cultures in history.



In addition to being wrong about "warrior cultures" not having facial hair, you need to relax as you pretty much have no proof whatsoever and are generally pulling this out of your ass.

I have to say im not liking any anti beard sentiments, every man has a right to grow some face fluff!

Am i right in thinking that the original poster was suggesting only 2 chapters out of 1000 should have beards? Surely the origin/culture of the chapters recruits should have an impact on wether they grow facial hair or not.

Personally ive given loads of my marines plastic marauder heads and they have all kinds of bum fluff.

The galaxy is the Emperor's, and anyone or anything who challenges that claim is an enemy who must be destroyed

Real men have beards, and the Space Marines are the Zenith of real men.

All Space Marines should sport beards.

This is why Squats rock. 99% of GW staff are tall white nerds who MAY hit puberty when they are 40, so in their jealous rage over Squats having full, 3 foot long beards, GW nerds in charge destroyed them.

It's kind of ironic that you say that, because when the Squats were actually out, Jervis Johnson himself not only had a beard, but looked the very epitome of a real life Space Wolf. IIRC, others of the studio also sported facial hair in those woebegone days.

Space marines are all based on geneseed from the primarchs who are men, men all have facial hair some men choose to shave... others dont ?. While some chapters may have aesthetic tendencies to trim it short and pull of a rugged look (blood angels), there may be situations where they cant pull out a razor and shave i.e if there in a long drawn out conflict. Not to mention its not like its written in the codex astrates though shall not grow thine mustachio, its really only a matter of personal taste.

Battle-Brother Freeman and his Power Crowbar of Doom. Glasses and beard included.

Must have a proper color scheme to match.

He just walks up to the enemy and says "I am Morgan Freeman", and the enemies all fall over in a swoon of awesomeness. Sam Elliott has personally conquered many planets back for the Imperium using this method.

Anyway, if we're talking about epic beards, someone needs to make a Lincoln bearded Marine.

I've made a couple of Lincoln-bearded guardsmen before. Of course, guardsmen look way cooler with beards that marines. Probably has something to do with the universally agreed upon fact that guardsmen are cooler than space marines

I second the gordon freeman with power crobar, and I want to see one now.

Otherwise I will be forced to buy a terminator and make one for myself, complete with an Orange Box assorment of other goofballs for an army that does not make any sense.

EDIT: On the note of no sense whatsoever, I will be adding beards to all my genestealers.
