Distant Daughter by NicklausofKrieg Distant Daughter by NicklausofKrieg
if there are three things i've heard Krieg is known for it's the Death korps it's war factories and opera music

and on that note i drew representatives of all those three so here we have a Death Korps general along with his Grenadier guards (i drew most of them as representatives of the death korps to symbolize it's dominance in krieg society) an arms factory foreman (with his adeptus mechanicus badge) and an opera singer

this also features :iconraven913:'s inquisitor character on her trip to Kreig when she was still an inquisitorial acolyte

she was born on a warship to a pair of Death korps soldiers on their way to their deployment when both of her parents were killed in action she was left on the doorstep of the nearest Adepta Sororitas monastery where she was taken in and and raised by sisters there

so besides checking out her genes it's pretty hard to tell she has any relation to Krieg

Is the opera thing true I can't seem to find information on that at my usual sources? If so where do you get your fluff? The books themselves I guess, since I am too poor to play the tabletop game.

Being a freakishly tall owner of a gas-mask myself, I immediately relate to the officer at the back, just towering over everyone else.

This is an incredibly cool picture and I think you've done a superb job of capturing Krieg society (or at least the upper echelons): the arms factory foreman in particular is a good representation of what I imagine Mechanicus personnel "going native" and eventually blending into the populace of the world they are stationed to after so many centuries would look like - perhaps a distant descendant of a full blooded Techpriest but now more Krieger then bionic.

Funnily enough, the only thing I can't wrap my head around for Krieg is what the underground hive cities would look and function like.
