Ok, I know is not what you grew accostumed to, but time is expensive in the computers here. I had almost no time to scan and process it. And all i got was a pair of hours to draw and ink and the microsoft paint as main software. If anybody wants to colour it, go ahead
So, today... as the Johnson`s epitaph... "Memories", second part!.
The black carapace is implanted directly under the skin. Imagine it like the neuro-link that those guys in the matrix had...well exactly like in this picture. What you are referring is the black abrasive shirt that you saw sometime on other comic of W40k. To be honest I never knew what the hell those shirt where.
As for Darius, Nice work there. Hope japan is to your liking.
I wonder if he kept the Stormbolter and the Power sword that's stuck in the X8's leg, they're the only Space Marine weapons Johnson has left. I mean since the Tau can pretty much reverse-engineer any weapon they come across, creating ammo for the Stormbolter would not be difficult.
Err...In the what's happening section, it said that our favorite marine died. Now True_darius post one of Jonh memories as his epitaph...I-iiiii think he's dead. But he might still live in texas like elvis, who know's...
