Another Girl Another Planet by NicklausofKrieg Another Girl Another Planet by NicklausofKrieg
"we couldn't help but celebrate the arrival of the imperial guard relief force that just made landfall yesterday even if they were such grim looking folk"

just some death korps grenadiers receiving warm welcomes as they pass through a town on their way to a hivecity to relieve its PDF garrison

whenever i read about people's reaction when the death korps arrive on their planet it's always full of fear or they're freaked out or spooked all of a sudden and just look at them with awestruck faces don't they feel that some warm welcome or appreciation is in order?

but then again where the death korps walk hellholes follow

The Krieg at the left and right is like "Nope, not interested"

There was one other piece of work with the same theme. Death Korps troops marching in all their silent and grim glory when a girl rushes forward from the silent crowd and attaches a flower to one of the korpsmen's coat (Or gave him a flower?), but her grandma calls her back and call her suicidal.

This is oddly heart warming, however after reading the Novel Dead Men Walking I still wouldn't try to warm up to a Krieg >_<

I can imagine the Death Korps being totally freaked out. Or, just to be contrary, have them being understanding and grateful and fight harder than ever before to protect those who could look past their frightening countenance...
Of course, GrimDark demands that they will inevitably fail, probably due to treachery that will destroy the Hive from within while they are busy crushing the last of the Xenos opposition. And then they come back, and Chaos has taken over, and...

"They WHAT?!"
"Launched a crusade into the Eye of Terror, sir. Apparently they had enough of 'those damn Cadians pussyfooting about like some pre-Schola juvies-'"
"Alright, that's it! Cadians! Tonight, we dine in the Eye!"

The firs part is GrimDark, true enough.
The second features Ass-Kicking of such EPIC levels that Kamina himself will cheer them on.

Once the Catachans heard about the party they had to join as well, naturally. Last anyone heard of them they were renovating Nurgle's forest of plagues - something about "showing them what a real jungle looks like". Word is Sly Marbo found some pretty lady being held hostage by a fat bastard, so he rounded up Gunny Harker and Ol' Iron Hand Straken to rescue her...

Side Note: You know that Grey Knight who's been wanking around in the Warp for Emperor knows how long? Yeah, between him being AWOL and swinging around a re-forged Daemon blade, the Kriegans declared him Excommunicate Traitoris and had him summarily executed. Turns out psychic wards don't help all that much against anti-Titan weaponry.

Grand Master of the Grey Knights, Lord Kaldor Draigo, Warhammer 40K's very own Canon Mary Sue.
I would say "may he burn in the Warp", but the twits over at GW has him running around all over that place with a freaking extinguisher...

I love the concept of this; it's the kind of realistic thing that most Warhammer art tries to smother under all that 'trying too hard to be tough' style. :meow:

It's always good to see someone take a different approach to the Grim Dark Future of the 41st Millenium. Love your work. Also, what is that Krieg Guardsman thinking about that girl with the flowers?

All of your works make great use of black and white. This is made all the more potent when you have two drastically different characters as the opposite colors like the Kriegs and the Girl here. Also, I like the ammo pouches. They look like more modern versions of WW2 German ones.

i always like portraying contrast with my black and white style
and considering it's the 41st millennium they just can't be using the EXACT same gear they used in WW2 so i give their gear a bit of a modern twist like how they wear their ammo pouches on a chest rig rather than on their belts like in WW2

I don't know why but this piece speaks to me a lot, just the idea that these men, who may not have even seen a woman before, or at least not one who wasn't in a position of authority, meet this girl who is celebrating their arrival, seeing happiness in what they see as a grim existance.

I'd like to write a little something inspired by this, is that alright?

Just wondering though, do we have any canonical material that shows how a Krieg Guardsman acts? or talks? or the like, as I can't find anything about the people anywhere that isn't fanmade.

Typically if the Death Korps are called in, they need to do some hard grueling and above all bloody work that no one else wants or can do.

Like shelling a rebellious hive city for 6 years to kill everyone inside. Or manning trenches against Orks. Or capturing Eldar. ;)
