The Heroes Of Aurelia? by NicklausofKrieg The Heroes Of Aurelia? by NicklausofKrieg
just a compilation drawing of some of my characters grouped up in a similar fashion as the imperial guard hero cast in Dawn Of War II: Retribution i decided to do this after i noticed that they all looked so much alike

mind you all these characters were made before the game was released let alone before i played it

the veteran sergeant and commissar were characters i made roughly 3 years ago during my very first days here on deviantart while the lord general is probably the most coincidental one due to his fancy mustache and bionic arm (though i never envisioned him shooting two handed weapons with it) while the inquisitor's similarities are pretty obvious

I love how the Commisar is sorta just popping in like "Hai Guys! Anyone need morale boosting through summary exectution?"

the lord general is actually believable, The inquisitor, well, good luck finding a heretic amongst the Death Korp, and the sergeant lass, does she enough boom/dakka, and well, words don't need to be said about the commissar, I'm worried he'll shoot me for being a polytheist.

I believe that the canonical ending was a mixture of the space marines, imperial guard, and eldar; the ones that didn't result in the end of the Blood Ravens and of sub-sector Aurelia. So Gabriel Angelos is chapter master, the imperial guards survive (at least the important ones), and Taldeer's soulstone is recovered by her brother, Ronahn. Oh yeah, spoilers.

i'd like to believe it was the imperial guard, but popular opinion says it was the Eldar or the Space Marines or a mix of both endings

well there is a mod that turns the guard into Kriegers. (It came out before the DLC)
It works in campaign too.

You know you've ascended to the honourable status of veteran of the Emperor's Imperial Guard when everyone makes you carry their gear. Then again, trying to protest this holy honour in the presence of 3 individuals who are so high above you in the chain of command that they can't even remember that far down the ladder is probably a bad idea :D

Excellent drawing as usual, incredibly cool Imperial German Krieg!

There'd be a Imperial cartoon network for showing the necessary propaganda for little minds to grow in the right way but I doubt the average child has a TV down at the manufactorum.

yeah i was thinking about redrawing him to fit in with everyone else (and i might do that)but i thought putting him in just like this gives the drawing more variety and character

plus the commissar lord's my favorite commander unit

well if i were to do a similar drawing like this except with chaos characters the chaos lord will probably be the only chaos marine in there (since i hardly have any astartes character to use let alone chaos ones)

My favorite is the Commissar Lord.

I get the feeling here that they had all started to pose for a group photograph when suddenly the Veteran Sargeant was called away so she is yelling over her shoulder, "Hold on don't take the pict Im jus-"

And the Commissar Lord has at that moment poked his head and said: "WHats going on here!?"

And the camera took them all.

well in retribution the plague champion has an ability which makes enemy units upon death reawaken as zombies so i guess if a situation like that arises they'd be fighting zombies

Simply Great.

I like your Lord General better than Castor, plus he might have a German accent.

The Inquisitor much better looking and actually has hair.

Veteran Sergeant. "BRING THE AMMO!"

Commissar awesome. XD

well in my opinion the original cast is cool in their own right :)

and while maybe my inquisitor is better looking Adrastia DOES have hair you just gotta look closely (it's tied up in a bun)

and of course though i like orginal commissar's half burned face my commissar's skull mask is pretty cool too it's got its own style of intimidation :D
