Lantern Marine by DavidSondered Lantern Marine by DavidSondered
This is for a commission.
Lantern Marines are Dark Angels successors, Monastic but with a Tiki/Polynesian native origin that shows in their armour.
They have Lanterns hanging on their backpacks that can, if nothing else is available, be used as powerweapons.

This was all in the brief (though I shortened it down).

They also have sort of a metal-rock theme going on, which explains some flame-motiefs.

edit: 
as there are still people asking:
I did not invent the Lantern Marines, hey where invented by someone ese.

Here is a write-up

Do the lanterns (power-weapons, you said) hang on chains that extend from the backpack-rig? Or is it a question of shouldering his opponents with them?

they hang from chain-feeders, making it possible to weild them in your hands.

Though I did not create the Lantern Marines and their weaponry, this is one of the items I spoke to the commissioner about.
