And a millisecond later he wasn't thinking it was such a good idea, because it's hard to think after being punched by a Tau battlesuit and having been effectively squished into a tank hatch like jam into a jar. :P

He realized that he should have simply turned the storm bolter around and mowed the stupid battlesuit (who thinks it can close-combat) down.

Oh well!  Sucks for him.

I doubt that storm bolter would achieve more than some dents and scratches and hazardous ricochets against that battlesuit.

Fluff-wise bolters fired from too close for the explosive to arm still punches straight through Astartes armor, through the Marine and out the otherside and keeps going.  I'm pretty sure that is sufficient penetration, especially when combined with the extreme rate of fire of a storm bolter.

On the other hand.  If I were that guy, I would have made sure the power pack for my laspistol was overcharged for a hotshot.  Not enough in this case, but still.

Then again, that battlesuit isn't astrates armor. :P
But ok, let's say it could achieve something if he fired that storm bolter at it, he still doesn't have enough time to turn it around and get off a good salvo before he's reduced to the likeness of minced meat.

You're right it isn't astartes armor, but think: If it can go fully penetrate and keep going through a space marine, would it not penetrate and get lodged in the Tau inside?

That would depend on if he even managed to fire it anymore, not to mention if it would hit somewhere so it would not just go into interior machinery rather than the pilot. Oh and if the Crisis Suit has a shield generator, then that too. :P

Either way, the guardsman is dead. Also, that doesn't look like a heavy stubber, heavy bolter or even a regular bolter. More like a box with two barrels, it doesn't even have an ammo feed!
