New image[edit]

I think it's time for a new infobox image. Anyone have any suggestions? I briefly looked and I feel like this one could be decent, though I would prefer one with more Marines and maybe some of their vehicles. I will continue looking. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 21:34, 4 January 2016 (EST)

It could definitely use a change. Personally, though, if we're looking for them wearing the armor seen in Halo Wars and Halo 2 Anniversary, this one is a better representation. However, I actually think it'd be a better idea to get a more recent, post-war interpretation of the Marines, like the ones on Infinity - something like this, without the blur obviously - but there aren't really any decent images of the Marines going around right now. --Grim Looters (talk) 08:36, 5 March 2016 (EST)
This one with its background removed is my suggestion. Imrane-117 (talk) 08:42, 5 March 2016 (EST)
The quality isn't too good on that one. I wish we had an image that isn't a scan. --Jugus (Talk | Contribs) 11:56, 6 March 2016 (EST)
Oh, would you look at that, the quality of the images I linked messed up. Nice. Anyway, can we have some sort of consensus here? I'm getting real bored of the current image. --Grim Looters (talk) 22:35, 11 April 2016 (EDT)
I make the assumption that your silence is telling me it's good to go. Well, I'm changing it to the image of the Marines in Halo wars - the one in the foreground with the M90, the one in the back with the MA5B, wearing the brown heavily-plated combat armour in the opening cutscene. I think it better represents the Marines for two reasons - A) They provably have used that set of armor for the majority of their known operational history, including in the Insurrection, Human-Covenant War, and up to the New Pheonix incident in Spartan Strike - well into the postwar period. B) The M52B armor we see now was only used towards the end of the Human-Covenant War and ceased to be in service afterwards, as far as we know. It probably evolved into the postwar designs we see on Infinity, as I'd imagine it would've been experimentally manufactured to test durability against Covenant weapons or something. Change it again if you like, just don't change it back to that blasted Halo 3 thing again. --Grim Looters (talk) 19:31, 21 April 2016 (EDT)
Changed it again to a picture from the epilogue of Halo 4, which I think is a much better representation of them in the postwar era. Sorry for changing it so sporadically. --Grim Looters (talk) 19:46, 21 April 2016 (EDT)
