The Ancient by NicklausofKrieg The Ancient by NicklausofKrieg
just a colored redrawing of an old death korps lord general character of mine

some would consider him to have lived way longer than any krieger should be allowed to live, but he's just real damn lucky he fights just as much as any death korps general is expected to but he's always come out alive even after a few attempts at martyrdom, he's also one of the few kriegers who was able to actually visit krieg again after a tour of duty

he's 130 years old, way old for death korps standards

Is it it only me, or does he look like otto von bismarck?

The only thing missing is to find out his name is Ludendorf.

He is a lucky guy. The prade uniforms of Kerig are like the uniforms of the german army durring WW1. Verry nice pic.

thanks :D

as much as i think it's evident that krigers are based off of gerans i think they could still use a bit more of a germanic nudge

"Heil dir seigerkranz, Herrscher des Vaterlands!"

I have a feeling the old Prussian idea-"The men are scum, theives and villains all but we shall make them into an army to fear!"-would be right at home behind that impressive Kaiser-tache :D

yeah i'd imagine that quote would be quite fitting during the times of turmoil during krieg's civil war just when the death korps was being created :)

Definitely and probably continues to this day-convince the soldiers that they are worthless scum whose only way to win the Emperor's love is to martyr themselves gloriously. Not like those pansy Tanith and their "respect" for each other!

though as much as i think he's not that tolerant to such slack behavior i'm sure he's a pretty patient guy i mean he's lived quite long and the death korps specialize in long siege warfare

Looks like he has a few enthralling war stories to tell... being a Krieger he probably wouldn't say much, but still, I'm sure they'd be epic all the same. As ever, great work on the uniform and ornamentation!

yeah i'm sure he can tell and entire generations worth of stories

i always thought the original designs for the lord general really lacked sufficient indications befitting of someone their rank
