SS Kimono Crysis by NicklausofKrieg SS Kimono Crysis by NicklausofKrieg
just some small portraits i've worked on trying out some new design directions

the first one is a Death Korps Stormtrooper (assault trooper basically) with a more WW2 SS look rather than the usual modern designs i do the next one is an Eldar Farseer again i used an older style with a more ancient sci-fi look ditching armor for more robes and then there's a Vindicare Assassin (since i haven't drawn assassins in a while) nothing too different except i gave him a MOLLE chest rig for a more modern spec ops feel than the tight-suited superhero look most Officio Assassinorum guys are supposed to have

No. 42 Waffen SS Division "Kimono" commanded by Obergruppenfuhrer der Waffen SS Reinhard Crysis.

Shut up it makes sense.

Now I really like the Death Korps trooper's camo pattern-he looks like he just stepped out of the Ardennes in 1944!

:D It is quite fun, especially when you end up creating an out of character background for something.

I knew it! Even without a seeable face I knew it-its the belt of rounds and SS camo :D

i'm thinking about making a story about the death korps after thier little civil war and how they spread across other worlds but i'm not sure about what they look like, recently i have looked at your drawings and have been extremely impressed. if you have the time i would like to see more, would you be able to create more?

to call it a "little civil war" is a severe understatement my friend

but i think you're in luck, recently i've been planning some drawings illustrating how soldiers of Krieg looked like through its history so i think it'll help you out

perfect, i just need something like a cover really, something that shows who the death korps are.
also sorry for not saying this sooner but there was some problems that were to much of a high priority to ignore like e-mails and passwords and usernames hense the change in my username on this site, hope you don't mind.

Seems like the Farseer is about to say something sarcastic. Just me.

Also, hello!

The Stormtroopers camo reminds me of the Fallschirmjäger camoflauge. Very nice. Love the stick grenade too.

Right now I'm imagining the SS paradropping into a hive-city, his parachute getting caught on a spire, and then he cuts the line to his chute and drops on top of a chaos guardsman....Oh and then he could throw the knife at another heretic who spots him

I lept for joy when I saw that you posted new stuff. Now on to the piece.

Stormtrooper looks nice, great job of on the camo. Got the colors perfect. Makes it really look and feel like actual late WW2 Waffan SS. His gasmask is distinct from the others you've drawn. Not too modern, not too old, just inbetween.

The Farseer could have form fitting armour under those robes, and is merely wearing them for show. Whatever the case, I love the mix of red, rose and white. The headress seems odd to me, but strangely fitting for Eldar.

The Vindicare doesn't have much going for him, but the line work is solid and coloring fits. I wouldn't spot him 2 and half clicks away at night.

thanks :D

well i have been inactive for under a month so i guess it was a surprise

yeah i kinda made his gasmask much more modern with the glowing eyes, black rubber and side filter all the only old style design to it is the tube not that many modern gasmasks use tubes anymore

yeah that's basically my new idea for Eldar armor i'd imagine them wearing light and flexible skintight suits with minimal solid components mainly relying on the wraithbone's psionic effects to generate a limited power shield this will allow them to have decent armor without sacrificing speed

originally i was gonna have the Vindacare wear something similar to the Nanosuits in Crysis but i thought i'd study the design more before going with it so that's why he's looking pretty simple

and also it's "Klicks" not "Clicks" it starts with a K for kilometer :)

Oh silly me. I'll make sure to type it as klicks from now on.

Looks very impressive - but I can't help feeling that the Assassin needed moar detail. IMO Great Job!!

well at first i wanted to give him the same muscular design as the Nanosuits from Crysis [link] but i just thought i'd study the design more thoroughly before doing so
