As everyone knows, Adeptus Astartes (read: Space Marines) of Warhammer 40,000 are awesome. They can probably beat up any of your favorite game heroes without so much as a rev of their phallic chainswords. And if there were any game about revving phallic chainswords, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is it.
Unfortunately for 40K fantatics looking for real flavor in their armored space fascists, the single-player campaign of Space Marine stars Captain Titus of the Ultramarines, a stoic, dispassionate and utterly dull chapter of the Astartes. They’re the beige in blue power armor, if you will. Wouldn’t you much rather play a Dark Angel, Space Wolf, Imperial Fist, or even one of Relic’s own Blood Raven Space Marines instead? I would.
Thankfully, this mod allows you to do just that for Space Marine‘s singleplayer campaign, allowing Captain Titus to be stoic and dispassionate in the power armor colors of your choice. Even better, the mod allows you to put a helmet on his damn head! What use is all that master-crafted gear when a single stray bolter round could cave your skull in, right?
If you’re looking to inject some more character into Space Marine‘s characterless characters, you can try the mod out. Just remember that you’ll have to turn it off once you’re done if you want to play multiplayer. Console players need not worry, though, because only PC players can use this mod, naturally.
In the meantime, I’ll be working on ways to “recruit” Captain Titus into my own custom Space Marine chapter: the Day-Glo War-Men. We serve the Emperor…and our imagination.
