This Is My Happy Face by NicklausofKrieg This Is My Happy Face by NicklausofKrieg
Death Korps Grenadier Lieutenant 658244-526455 Krauss of the 1267th grenadier company volunteered his platoon for a near suicidal mission smashing through Eldar lines and continuing their assault deep into enemy territory in order to kill the Eldar's farseer and the seer council

the operation was branded a success by death korps high command and though Krauss and his whole platoon was presumed lost they succeeded in claiming the lives of the farseer and most of the seer council

a more serious note for all you people who wonder how this ended up [link]

This is brilliant stuff. The reference to the Unhealthy rugged look of the Eastern Front soldiers is great. Love it. :thumbsup:

yeah kinda a rare sight people hardly ever really draw them without the masks so besides written descriptions i don't really know how they look like

so here i pretty much used pics of german soldiers during WW2 in the eastern front as reference to really capture the unhealthy rugged look kriegers are described to have

First time I see a Krieger without the mask!
...
......
Err... Maybe they wear it because it's less creepy than their own face?

By the (web)way, fantastic work man. :+fav:

May I ask you a favor though? Why are your awesome guys ALWAYS killing Eldars? I know we are a lot (HA!)
but there are uncountable heretics out there... May we have a truce? :surrender:

i have bee kinda doing that quite a bit haven't i? sometimes i just can't help it really what with Biel-Tan just outsied Krieg's backyard and all that
maybe i'll just pick on the Tau this time they've always pissed me off

and also it's quite a coincidence that you mention a truce i was actually planning a drawing depicting a Krieg general and an eldar farseer negotiating on actually

Wow... I gain a foreseeing piont for this :D

I've been thinking a bit about this, and I concluded that Orks, Nids and Chaos guys are quite hard to draw, so many people have their "good" characters killing Eldars, Tau and renegade Guardsmen. :shrug:

also i kinda prefer the imperium's war against xenos (especially advanced one like eldar and tau) because the conflict is mainly racial and or political whereas wars with chaos is about religion and wars with 'nids is basically pest control to the extreme which are things i can't really relate to or find interesting

I think that the war agianst Eldars and Taus are the most stupid.
I mean, fighting 'Nids, Orks, Chaoz guys, Necrons and Dark Eldars is fighting to survive, but Eldars and Taus? It's a "Hey that's my planet" story. What the hell? Can't we just sit at a table and talk about it?

:iconheresyplz:

Probably not. Fair too utopian.

:iconnicklausofkrieg:
NicklausofKrieg Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012
well it's basically because i prefer wars with enemies who have a similarly reasonable and deep rooted ideology rather than someone who is just out to kill kill kill, i believe it shows more character to know what they think of each other and how they see the world

plus skewed politics and racial ideologies in a story can be quite grimdark, whereas fights for survival are usually very simplistic and uplifting... or grim but still simplistic

Well, that's not totally true. Necrons are waking up to restore their empire. Dark Eldars go on raidings to survive, and have a very complex ideology (racial superiority complex?), you only need to take some time to understand it. And some Chaos guys do have a reason to fight the Imperium, and don't make trips out of the Eye of Terror only to kill, maim, burn.

:iconnicklausofkrieg:
NicklausofKrieg Featured By Owner May 4, 2012
aren't the Necrons just mindless soul harvesters for the C'tan gods? as for the dark eldar i guess they do have just as much racial ideology as the average eldar, but sometimes all this talk of "pleasure" drowns it all out for me and they just end up sounding like a bunch of BDSM party animals gone violent

while for chaos like i said i don't really relate much with all the holy wars and god talk, too religious for my blood

maybe you're right and if that's true then i better brush up on drawing Orks 'nids and chaos guys

"What the Warp! Now I'm pissed! This is the third time we try to warn Humans of Demons and they kill us... C'mon guys, let's return on the Craftworld, there's the Pancake Week"

Some Eldars are not heartless killers, and now I'll demonstrate it to you: come here!

:tighthug:

Oh no! I did it again... :noes: :p

What? Err... Yes, a-hem!...
Well, my Craftworld's army spare their lives (if they aren't dead by the Fire Prism, the Wraithlord or the Banshees) and we take them to the nearest Imperial colony. (either if they are Sanctioned Psykers or Space Marines Librarians)
But this is pretty rare because we fight mainly Demons and Chaos Cultists/Marines, and when we are in battle we all go berserk, so I've met living imperial psykers only 3 times...

:sarcasm: Ha! I'd like to see you try and explain THAT to a PDF commander.
After getting a better look at you, I'd say that you are a harlequin eldar.
*Checks xeno-identification-scroll*
Yes, you probably are. So that's why prisoner-disposal policies are non-existant for your army.

he's the lieutenant who lead the grenadier platoon during the operation he's also the grenadier featured here [link] where he personally dealt with the farseer

Yes.... I admit that I give you a bad question and I didn't read the description thoroughly enough.

But remember how I recommended music for your pictures?
I'm doing it again, this time for your Lieutenant: [link] It's "mumford and sons" if you've heard of them.
The singer (who you will hear at 0:27) sounds like how I'd imagine the lieutenant would sound.
Best of all, the lyrics support the idea that the human and eldar are not dead
