The Creeps by NicklausofKrieg The Creeps by NicklausofKrieg
it kinda donned on me just a few days ago that probably the reason the death korps of krieg are my favorite regiemnt is because i can kinda relate to them 'cause just the other day my bro mentioned to me how his friends were quite freaked out by my quietness when i met them just last week which didn't really surprise me since everyone i've ever known besides my absolutely close friends or family were also quite frightened by me due to my silence but i didn't really give much thought to until recently

which has got me asking what's so scary about quiet people? i mean i've never been the least disturbed by quiet people i myself am quite used to silent company


so here's a quick poster styled drawing featuring imperial guard regiments with krieg being shown as quite distant from the rest of them

and also i dunno why but this drawing also makes think of some sort of band poster or something

I've usually preferred the utterly unquestioning and cold professional sort of attitude in most fiction- Death Korps seems to fit that to a tee, even have the kickass gas masks going on. Seems really odd in retrospect that I haven't looked into them more. 

I guess it's since I always find myself gravitating towards Astartes... and they're anything but quiet and cold. Professional in their own way I suppose, I guess I just like the touch of religious fanaticism and knightly/crusader vibe thrown in more.

I really like this.  It's almost as if the Death Korps of Krieg are the outsiders of the Imperial Guard.  Awesome stuff!

The Steel Legion regiment guardsmen also wear gas mask.

But Kregers don't talk unless they are given a official "Permission to speak" form from there Commanding officer or a granted Temporary permission to speak from there Watch officer or higher rank.

that or they are taking the Emperor Mercy from a Quatermaster

of course, Kasrkins are also usually seen with gasmasks too, but they are quite loved rather than feared.

it's more a case of character.

How about the Salvar Chem - Dog. They are nothing more than criminals who were made to fight for the Imperium.

the fact that you said "nothing more than criminals" already says that they may be looked down upon, and maybe even seen as a ragtag lot of screw ups, which some people do see them as. they're criminal scum, and that comes with a set of expectations, they're very readable that way, forget the gasmasks.

the things about the death korps is their cold demeanor you can't read them, and the knowledge that they came from a hellhole, raised to kill, welcome death, and come with an unflinching willingness to do anything to win makes them all the unpredictable, who knows what they'll do to achieve they goals? or what goals they set for themselves?

You sure love the Death Korps, don't you? I didn't know this much about the regiment before.
