Here are the people in the story -from left to right-
Thirteen: Special operations/ explosives
Steven: Fire team leader/ heavy gunner
Scott: Sniper/ marksman
Jerry: Close quarters/ vehicles
Oh and keep on drawing amazing pictures.

A sturdy line of stalwart men, looking death square in the eye and laughing in the face of decent equipment.....

Nice touch on the Catachan's jacket, they've gotten away with looking like Rambo for too long :D

well isn't that how all guardsmen are like? heh i'm glad they look tough and scary though i wanted to give them a feel to show that they're more than just average guardsmen:D

based him off of Stiller [link] something about the way they looked in tropic thunder made them look like your quintessential head-band wearing 'Nam guys but at the same time there's a hint of realism

plus the Catachans are way too lacking when it comes to body armor especially considering that that style of flack jacket is as iconic to the Vietnam war as head-bands and grungily ornate helmets

Well not the ones who run away ;) These guys definitely look more hardened then the average grunt :D

Guardsman Ben Stiller: :iconawesomenessplz:

Definitely-all that muscle flexing and posing as ARD MEN just makes me laugh at the Catachans, if they want to be taken seriously they need to look more like jungle fighters, not American action heroes.

From left to right: Doesn't really need a commissar, Commissar will end up dead, Commissar will mistake for someone else in squad, Commissar will be a glory-hound and get too many killed.

It would be fun to see these guys struggle to work together
The tallarn and catachan would piss each other off
the kriegian scares everyone
and the cadian can decide who to agree with.

I really love these portraits. These dudes have quite a bit of character. I especially like the design of all of them , though the cadian and catachan(?) stick out in my mind for being particular cool.

i sometimes like expanding on or doing my own renditions of what other people think up of it's a nice challenge to see how i can translate it with my own twist and kinda refreshing to do something new instead of whatever comes out of my own head
