Power armor is armor that walks for you. Literally. It has a power back and synthetic musculature that walks for you, which is why when it powers down it requires enormous strength to even move it.

 

I would argue that it is not a vehicle because it doesn't move for the Marine of its own volition. The marine walks and it walks with him. Granted, at this point it is just semantics. If you want to use it as a vehicle, then use it as a vehicle, dog. I am just letting you know my opinion to the contrary.

 

Cheers.

 Thats all fine and dandy, and i get what you said now and before, but the simple fact is: you run you will get tired, you put on a suit that has legs that walk for you and it cant be considered a armour, but something that gets you from point A to point B (a.k.a. a vehicle) if you think you can make it an armour, try cuz honestly i think its easyer this way.(I mean wearing armour over armour, lol)

YO DOG, YOU NEED ARMOR ON YOUR ARMOR. PIMP OUT THAT ARMOR.

 

 

My legs get me from point A to point B... I have never considered them a "vehicle" until this moment. SEMANTICS.

If you put armor on your legs that walks for you and moves your legs in the process, your legs are going to get tired at some point.

i dont think the warsuit uses leg movement, but to be honest i have no idea how a space marine in power armour fits inside the warsuit

If I remember correctly....

 

The Space Marine folds his arms across his chest and steps into the suit. As you can see, his legs do not fill the suit legs

Or not....sorry folks

Yeah, it's not working. Using the 360 from GW website but obviously I can't copy the URL. You can always visit their website and check it out yourself:

In TT, it functions as infantry with a Wounds score of higher than 1.

 

If you want to convert it in the way that FFG has always done for such things (see: Tau Battlesuits and  Nemesis Dreadknights), you want to treat it as adding Wounds to the wearer. In general, FFG has converted TT Wounds in excess of 1 to RPG Wounds in a 1 : 30 ratio. So, IIRC the TT rules for this silly suit correctly, it should add 30 Wounds to the wearer.
