So how can you make a space marine laugh...

I think seeing a swarm of Grotz being forced to run through a mine field would probably make even the most hardened veteran space marine laugh

Space Marines do not laugh, I wouldn't laugh if I were sterile why would they?

Phhh... marines use guardsmen for the that... until some *high* ranking officer gets messy, that is ( after all they can't affort messing with the IG who has endless reinforcements )

If you want a marine to laugh, tickle it :angel:

Yes and having the same squad of grots reapear in turn 6 and kill Commissar Yarrick will make orks laugh.
Incase your wondering what the point is; sissy space marines take themselves to seriously to laugh.
Try ORKS we know how to laugh. You see we dont war we just have friendlys
and kill a bit here and there.

Makes IG laugh too... because grots strike after him ( grots are not worth using the power claw ), only hit him on 5s (1/3rd), only wounding on at best 6s ( 1/36th ), and he has a 4+ armour save + 3 wounds + iron will. I guess the fact that grots ( not more than 14 can count as fighting ) manage to take that $(number of attacks)/1296 chance would make me laugh ...

EDIT: Well marines laugh at me when I dice ten ones in a row for my bassilisk shell that crashes into the middle of a BT formation...

:p

Something about Orks screaming 'frieeeeendly!' that made me lmao. Also makes me feel like painting some Orks in Tie Dye Cloths with Peace signs and well you get the idea.

How to make a space marine laugh, tell them the imperial guard all got a pair and are now able to stand up to the enemies of the imperium with a flashlight (lasgun)

telling him that the war to save the imperium is over and the human race owns the galaxy and all is peaceful...

that would make them laugh.

My Terminators in the old Space Hulk PC game laughed once in a while. It was usually after shouts of "Incoming!" and several bursts of Storm Bolter fire.

Swap the oxygen in his squad Sergeant's suit for helium.

(Of course, he'd have to be one of those rare Sergeants that actually wears a helmet...)

Somehow I think SM would laugh more like a "Muahahahaha" than a friendly chuckle, when their opponent begs for mercy.

I know how to make a necron laugh, shoot a lascannon at a space marine...
or rapid fire a plasma gun from marines at him over heat of the second shot kills the marine but the first shot kills the necrons but we'll be back saves him... YES I KILLED ONE!!! ohh i killed myself 2, oh well 1 for 1 is good i guess *comes back* NOOO!!!

I agree, they probably aren'y going to laugh, unless it is at someone else's expense.

I agree with RobbyJamal, but still... try sending Nagash against them to make 'em laugh... (Whoops, forgot it wasn't fantasy. :P)

I just got a a mentle image of Nagash sitting surrounded by skeletons laughing their heads off in a comical out of control way.


How to make a space marine laugh?

Show him the pictures of a sisters of battle shower room. Did you say laugh? I though you meant aroused.

To bad they have been neutered.

if you want a space marine to laugh just whisper "boobs" in a praying session and get louder each time, sure you'd be killed on sight but one HAS to crack a giggle and he'd be killed too.:D

DoW indicates they will chuckle evilly when encased in Terminator armor as they note the enemy "do not have a prayer" ;). I imagine they would still be human enough to die laughing if the enemy does something unbelievably stupid, preferably along the lines of blowing themselves up before they even reach the Marines.

I would imagine space marines would be jocular enough when training and resting, just as soldiers at any time are. they may come across as having an odd sense of humour to normal people, given their very different upbringing but it would still be there, probably more of a martial bent (making fun of each other's combat practice results, their enemies etc rather than jokes about their family or their commander). but still all done in a somewhat reserved, martial way and generally respectful way.

in a battle situation though, they are all business. I think in combat a marine would only open his mouth wide to: shout an order; bite you; spit acid in your face.

Do as you please.

You're kidding, right? You know nowadays weapons wound human like soldier like armoured targets better than 50% of the times and also don't care if armour dares to interfere unless the target is insanely lucky, do you? A marine should fear nowadays stuff....

How to make a Space Marine laugh?

Watch a Fire Warrior charge into close combat...
Watch a Chaos Guard squad immolate itself with rapid firing plasmaguns...
Watch a guardsman hit on a Sister of Battle... :D

How many Space marines does it take to screw in a lightbulb...
Two one to Screw in the light bulb and One to Scream for the Emperor... probably wont make a space marine laugh but maybe a guardsmen... who will then be shot on spot if heard by an officer

Unless it's my fire warriors who inexplicably kill everything that assaults them. Then the Marine would cringe in fear!

Considering that they join their Chapters at 12-14 on average, and live a fairly cloistered, locker-room style life of training after that, allowing little opportunity for personal growth as a rule:

Fart jokes.

Lol that made me laugh :p I can just imagine space marines doing that :p I think a space marine would laugh if someone farted when they were all praying..or is that just me?
Oh another is to slap the SM sergeants head :D most of them are bald anyway and that should make some chuckle and embarass the sarge :D
