 Hi All,

I'm fairly new to RT and WH40K, and am curious: What exactly would be a good example of carapace armor? I own all of the RT books, so a page reference would be cool. I did try a google search, but I just couldn't seem to find a clear cut "THIS IS CARAPACE ARMOR" link. Something like that would be cool.

Right at the start of the armour subchapter of the armoury. there is the one guy holding a hellgun and a power sword wearing carapace armour. Hes your standard Cadian Kasrkin (Stormtrooper).

This is an an example of the older and generic stormtroopers:

The carapace armour, doesnt necessarily have to be a bulky and clunky affair.

Thanks, this is very helpful! I probably should have gone to the wiki, but didn't think of it.

For storm troopers, I suspect a lot of the armor is under the fatigues for camo purposes. Try looking for pix of arbites they wear their light carapace with no fatigues.
