I don't really have anything to write about. I am curious as to why "beakie" Space Marine helmets are so much cooler than regular Space Marine helmets. I'm sure there is a formula for it, but as evidenced by my previously-posted mathematical struggles I am at a loss as to what it would be. Probably some sort of inequality. For those who aren't aware of the difference between a beakie Marine and a regular one, the second picture in yesterday's post shows it fairly well. The beakie Marine is the second from the left. They're called beakie Marines because the front of the helmet projects out into a point, like a beak. Fluffwise I believe they are from the Mk 6 armor style, while the majority of the helmets currently are a newer Mk 8 style.


  1. Funny... "Beakie", well the pronunciation of that word (not exactly the spelling), is what we used to call your wife to distinguish her from Beccah Leipold, whom we called "Bakka".
