By any other army a Space Marine scout would be counted as a hardened veteran, yet he has still to reach his full potential.
Realy love how you brought that out here. He is carefull, yet not overly cautious. He is wary, but not anxious. Whatever is in there will face one of the Imperiums finest. Still, will even that be enough, concidering others before him clearly have failed?

Well I think you have to check the Deathwatch book " Rites of Battle" wich for this art was done. Maybe you will find the answer there, but I cant say for sure. In any case, thanks for your comment. I really appreciate it.

awesome. But its typical of the imperium to try to weed out space marines at this stage simpley for honor. But then again space mariens exist for honour
