THIS. There has always been a need for more art like this, Space Marines actually directly saving lives. It humanizes the Astartes and shows that, in spite of the grim darkness of the 41st millennium, most of these guys are still heroes, and that a simple human life is still worth fighting for. Also the Deathwatch is badass so bonus points there.

Well, it highly depends on the chapter after all. Most of them, even the space wolfs, can sometimes directly save lifes in the middle of the battle, giving a more human side to them, but despite this, some of them still think that "mortals" are waste of their time, even among those chapter. And some chapters are just true asshole, like the malevolent chapters.

PRECISELY. This does happen, but there is virtually no art work depicting it because cool poses or huge battle scenes seem to be more popular.

You know what I would like to see in a good fanart one day? The scene in the novel "Helsreach" with the reclusiarch Merek Grimaldus inside a bunker, talking to a little girl. Grimaldus talking to the civils inside about the imminent lockdown of the bunker, when a little girl of 7 with her plush get close to his feets, he kneel in front of her with her face close to his helmet and she ask "My father said that you are a hero. You're going to save us ?" and despite the truth to be that the Orks are going to invade the place outside and certainly kill him before attacking the bunker, he swore that no Ork are going to arm them, because he will stand to protect them.

By the way, whose chapter this Space marine come from ? I'm ashamed because I can't recognize his coat of arms, even if I first thought about the Deatwatch, is it a custom chapter ?

Yes, its Deathwatch. I didn't specified marine's particular capter, because he can be from any chapter (but most likely Ultramarines or successors)

"They shall be my finest warriors, 
these men who give of themselves to me.
Like clay I shall mould them, 
and in the furnace of war forge them. 
They will be of iron will and steely muscle.
In great armour shall I clad them 
and with the mightiest guns will they be armed.
They will be untouched by plague or disease,
no sickness will blight them. 
They will have tactics, strategies and machines 
so that no foe can best them in battle. 
They are my bulwark against the Terror. 
They are the Defenders of Humanity. 
They are my Space Marines 
and they shall know no fear.."
Holy words of God-Emperor Himself.

Is that an indicator that shows a record of their own age?

It indicates years of service. Depending on design they represent 10, 50 or 100 years of service.

As a fan of Warhammer, you truly have captured the good side of SpaceMarines. They're aren't just war machines but they are soldiers fighting for the Emperor and mankind itself, they're saving individual lives!

Folowing common sense the power of the jump jets has to be adjustable to reach the heigth you want. No need to expose youself to enemy fire by jumping 50 meters to overcome a 10 meter obstacle. This also means that on the descend they can be used to slow down speed. All in all even an untrained human can handle up to 4 or 5 g. And you do not need to accelerate that much to get airborne for short jumps.

Or just check this.

I like Ultramarines so I belive that he is Ultramarine. But in fact it is no neccecary to know -- that is the pint. The only thing that matter -- is that he is the Emperor's Finest, protector of Humanity! :)

Ultramarines, Salamanders, White Scars, and the Raven Guard are the only "compassionate" "humanitarian" Chapters I know that would do something like this.

Love the picture mate, nice to see the human side of a Space Marine once in a while.

Blood Angels are compassionate as well. Also: Space Wolves went as far as to defy the Inquisition for the sake of imperial citizens.

Good to see the more... human and caring side of the Space Marines, it's kinda cute. And to be honest, reading and seeing nothing but uncaring, dogmatic SM gets kinda boring after a while, even if it is fitting for the theme of Warhammer 40k. That's why my favourite Marines are people like Garro, Torgaddon and Loken, the individuals. :D

Saving a girl's life, and striking a fabulous pose while he does it! :D

Love the detail on the Space marine, could use a little bit more going on in the back though, like some more buildings or a hive fleet hovering above. Also, this is more of a personal thing, but I can't imagine the common citizen wearing jeans and hoodie in the 41st millennium. Thematically speaking, I thought they should wear either victorian-era clothes or medieval germanic stuff.

Still, pretty good effort, I like how the paint streaks on his power armour are done such that they indicate motion as well. :3

That's interesting. I had no idea what common imperial citizen should wear, so I just draw something random.

Thank you!

Of course I'm no expert on the matter, I only suggested since the aesthetic for 40K tends to be described as a kinda gothic/cyberpunk hybrid. I tended to imagine the citizenry to be in plain rags or ornate part renaissance/part 1930s/part fantasy gear.

But I digress, Games Workshop was never really specific on details beyond military stuff. :P

Hope my feedback proves helpful! :)
