I haven't seen a thread yet discussing the new Space Marine 2 trailer. I'm not an expert on Ultramarines lore, so I have some questions that I am hoping folks can help answer:
1. Is Titus wearing Mark X armor now? The helmet looks to me like Mark X armor.
2. If he is wearing Mark X armor, does that mean he is now a Primaris Space Marine?
3. What is the significance of the chains on his right arm? I thought chains were typically a Black Templars thing (also, Khârn and other World Eaters, but that's clearly irrelevant).
4. What is the significance of the red and white stripes on his helmet?
5. He used to have two long-service studs, and now he has four. I can't make out the colors so I can't tell if they are gold or silver. Does anyone know how many years have passed between Space Marine 1 and 2 based on the number and color of the service studs?
Feel free to add any other questions or insights as you discuss. Thanks!
