More Warhammer armor

This one's a study of lower body power-armor. I haven't made it as massive as the standard Warhammer 40K visualization, which is too elephantine for my taste. I just can't imagine even a superpowered Space Marine moving quickly and evasively across a space while wearing huge armor, even though the authors assure us readers that it can be done. If I design a lighter look to the armor, it will not be "canonical." But I'm not playing the game, so I don't have to conform. I've done a number of parts of armor, next time I'll try a full set.

While I'm a fan of the bulkier armour, I like your designs all the same.

The Warhammer texts describe many different types and weights of armor, so I have the option of working on either light or heavy models.
