Real Steel by NicklausofKrieg Real Steel by NicklausofKrieg
just thought i'd do a full drawing of a steel legionnaire (since the first time i did draw one it was only a bust) to finally establish a design for them, it's not that different from the original GW stuff but this is just an initial design of course so i might come up with some more stuff for them

so here's a steel legionnaire

by the way how many people do you know use the term "steel legionnaire"? 'cause last time i called them that someone thought i was talking about a space marine chapter

I gotta ask, what program do you use to draw? Photoshop? Or some other industry standard software?

Panzer-Grenadieren vorwarts-furs das Gott-Kaiser!

I've always called them Steel Legionnaires, Ork Fodder, Not-Norts and Hive Scum due to their conscripting of gangs and other low lives from the hive cities :D

Awwwwww come on. What they lack in recruitment strategies and an actual city, they more than make up for that with massive experience with fighting Orks, that and they are pretty much look-wise, long lost cousins to the Kriegers. Lest they save us from the ugly tide known as Cadians...

I don't doubt their ability to fight greenskins, I just question the wisdom of handing gangbangers military equipment-perhaps its just my snooty attitude towards the poor or distrust of anyone with more hive tattoos then teeth but I shall always look down on Steel Legionaires until they start recruiting more desirables! You don't like Cadians?

Eh, they know how to fight Orks better than any Guard I know, and that's all I care about. And Cadians look too basic and generalised, more or less their armour looks to be made out of Lego and provides the same protection, flak armour meant for shrapnel isn't going to do much against a mass-reactive round. Overall generic Guardsman like the Cadians don't have any interesting about them, aside from the fact that they have to defend the Imperiums worst idea of putting colonies on a planet right in the face of the Eye of Terror...

What about the stiff upper lipped Praetorians? They did pretty well against the Greenskins during their existence. Their armour does look pretty generic but I don't think its fair to criticise the crappulence of it when most Guard wear the same stuff just in different styles (as in they all get flak armour). Well they get Kasrkin, their pretty awesome.....

True. Kasrkins are the epic. But as for the generic armor, you can say some don't even look like they wear it in IG. But the only thing that's somehow less than different than other Guard is the Armageddon Legion's Officer, looks like Darth Vader, have a look on the Collections tab on the GW site, you'll see what I mean.

True, the Death Korps have one shoulder pad to the common footslogger and the Steel Legion don't even get that (perhaps thats why the models were discontinued-in fluff terms they were all killed!).

Hilarious!
He is just standing there and do nothing, even the arms are normal.
But he screams Orks!
That looks so funny! xD
