Friday 40K Blogging: Space Squids

At long last my camera is back in action, and we can celebrate with the unveiling of the first two of my Space Squid marines.

Note how they stand guard over a tiny island in a tranquil ocean (which I probably should have hoovered first). Presumably the rest of the squad are still underwater, laying down some sub-aquatic smack.

Also, you'll notice I've decided to put my money where my mouth is and make the Krakens of Greyjoy a non-Caucasian chapter. It's nice to have some variety.

Don’t Space Marines have that weird organ add on that controls the pigmentation of the skin dependant on the level of radiation hitting them? So they are pale when in space or fighting underwater but dark skinned when in the hot sun?

That's the melanochrome. It causes the skin to darken in the presence of bright sunlight, and protects against other forms of radiation as well, but there's nothing to suggest it keeps the skin pale at other times.
