Space Marine Betcher's Gland by The-First-Magelord Space Marine Betcher's Gland by The-First-Magelord
A part of the Anargo Sector project that is a couple of years old now. These designs were made in collaboration with 5 other fellow fans. I drew heavily from the biological and scientific backgrounds of Tynesh and Kage and had the work edited to blend correctly with W40K canon/fluff by CELS, DAZO and Malika.

I will add a Gene Seed every month if I can with the next one coming out in October.

If anyone has any second opinions concerning the science/fluff/canon of my art Great! Keep it to yourself! Everyone of these designs has been rung through the kind of scrutiny that would cause most people to jump out a window and frankly I don't care to hear anything further on it.

If you have a problem with the way I drew something then draw it yourself. Post criticizing the canon will be removed. Post criticizing the art are fine.

No wonder these maniacs control most of the galaxy. They can bite the head off a bloody necron.

Good job for making these illustrative facts. :3

Also, the Betcher's Gland is the reason that Space Marines are able to digest anything.

So they can drink promethium when they are thirsty?

Anything.

Besides is Promethium closer to something like napalm than nitroglycerin. A regular human could eat it, but it's a tremendously stupid idea and they'd end up with digestion problems for a while, but yeah.

I hope I'll have other options before that, even a combat knife sushi would do.

The Emperor was crazy prepared about every single conceivable situation that his space marines could possibly have been involved in when designing the Space Marines.
