Default Do space marines...

...Always wear armor? Or can they have a bit of relaxation time in normal loose clothing? Do they SLEEP in armor, I mean, I know they don't need sleep... but are they wearing armor 24/7?

There was an article about space marine daily rituals [the GW's interpretation of paparazi articles] it describes loads of stuff.

Yes, they get out of it, for resting, perhaps preaching while in the stronghold and most importantly, repairing it.

Also, in the past Tyranids codex, there's a small description of an space marine beign healed without his Armour, so i guess that the armour is specificaly like an uniform.

The only wear the armour when they are going to war (most of the time) or on duty.

There is a lot of art around the place of marines out of there power armour, chilling out or what ever it is that the do on their half hour down time.

The art to. Plugs all our them matrix' styles.

I've read the daily rituals and saw the pics (The marine getting his armor on looked awsome lol) the reason I brought this question up, is because in the books it seems they're always in armor. In the ultramarines book, nightbringer..... Um, how can Marneus Calgar pick up anything with those giant gauntlets?!

Agreed... In the space wolf books it has them always in armor, exept in the first one when he had that unitard thingy on. But when they were drinking in the mess hall they always had armor.

Did anybody ever try converting a space marine without armor, or a Space marine without armor getting the gene-seed in him? That'd make a sweet (Yet disgusting) diorama.

Scouts already don't wear power armour so that is taken care of.

Gene seed implantation though ??? I think I might try that if I get the spare time.
