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:

a rare sight, seeing a death korpsmen without his gasmask.

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
