Honour the wargear of the dead.
"The spirit of this Astartes and the spirit of his armor has been left unatended long enough. Come Brothers, let us take our forefather home so that they both may rest in the halls of the honoured dead."

I feel like he should take the armor. But I also feel the dead should keep it.

The knight of the god emperor was filled with tears as he saw what remained of his past brother. An old dilapidated suit of metal with the eyes of the void of emptiness and the reek of the death...

First power armor "Thunder armor" was made 23k and "Iron armor" was made during the Great Crusade which began around 30k. Oh and when you say Iron men, it refers to servitor robots with über-high-tech-AI, during the Dark Age of technology, which then rebelled agains mankind.

I don't think they rebelled.  Looking at a Gaunt's Ghost novel with an STC spewing out chaos corrupted Men of Iron, I think that is what happened during the Iron War.  Think about it, the Men of Iron were defeated by psykers.  Psykers were then given free reign to develop their powers unhindered.  Those psykers then became warp portals for daemons during the latter part of the age of strife to ravage countless human worlds.  Then chaos tainted men of iron are discovered popping out of an STC.

Just As Planned.  Guess who could have done that?

Men of Iron thought themselves to be superior since they did everything for humans hence rebellion against inferior beings. And that STC had been in a Chaos-tainted plant for 1000 years. It too could be that Chaos gave a little subtle nudge to Men of Iron.

Plus the Emperor said that it is a tabu to use artificial technology!

Emperor made it taboo after the rebellion. Now they are replaced by the modern pre-programmed servitors, those creepy half man half machine thingies.

You can tell that marines been dead a long time. I like the age you gave the armour and the dust-like particles floating around, which gives the impression there's nothing left inside that armour.

Amazing! My interpretation of the scene: the Astartes are exploring a derelict ship dating back to the great crusade, and stumble across the remains of one of their ancient ancestors.

Amazing work, as always :D
