Just :iconawesomenessplz:

:iconimevilplz: Now no-one can my Guard will just be cheap Death Korps knock-offs!

This is outstanding man, even better then what I had envisioned-I bow to you and your ability to draw creases! Mind if I stick it in my gallery with some background text and a hearty congratulations to you for doing such an amazing job?

well that was always been the problem with these guys wasn't it?

i'm glad it went beyond expectations (though i'd say that's an overstatement) and yeah all this time drawing uniforms and cloth really got me used to creases, now all i need to practice on is armor

sure stick it on your gallery if you like it would attach well the lore you're going to write

It was-while I blame GW for already doing the WW1 Germany "thang" with the Death Korps I didn't exactly try too hard to seperate my Guard from then, something I shan't be doing again.

:D I can't draw creases to save my life, it always just ends up as wiggly lines on the clothing like somebody snuck leeches in them.

Thanks!

Have you asked Corporal-Yakob about a history for these guys?
being a fluff-fiend, I MUST HAVE BACKSTORY.

I like these guys, the design of the goggles and face bandana mask thing reminds me of :iconviviplz: for some reason.

Oh Iron grip, thought it looked familiar

any chance we can see some Valkyria chronicles troopers in your art style?

perhaps, though sometimes i find them too pretty looking for a setting based off of WWI and WWII

it's strange how upbeat and happy it looks when you've got things like Penal Battalions, Commissars and Death camps in it
