Very cool looking armour. I reckon this would work better in an alt-iverse of WH40k, rather then normal backstory.Whats does the gun represent if you use normal WH40k rules?

Probably heavy stubber. The armour could be a planet-specific version of carapace armour.

I like that idea :D The current Carapace armour is just Flak armour with a few extra plates afterall :P

Have you considered sending this off as concept art to a model making company? I reckon lots of people would their IG to look like this. :D

I'm glad you like my idea, but that's not my art. I just responded to your question. I'm not the artist, just a fellow viewer. Also, GW might not go for a different model of carapace armour when the Imperium is technologically-stagnant, because of the lore and maybe because it'll be harder or more expensive to produce more models for various vanity-pieces. If the artist wanted to do it, he could, but he should be ready for rejection for canon art.

Yeah, that too. Provided, of course, that the Adeptus Mechanicus accepts it and doesn't see it as heresy.

Now this is a great piece of tech! Seems he got for himself some Carapace armour and an Autogun. Comparable to the hellguns used by Storm Troopers, so thats some accurate use of firepower there.

His skin looks real too, reminds me of an Ogryn too, so perhaps he grew up in a similiar heavy gravity enviroment? Which would explain his great size and strenght thats for sure. :)

And for even more attention to realism and detail, the arm holding the Autogun appears to be a bionic - very good choice there, as the recoil level of an autogun often negates the weapon to mounted on vehicles, but with a bionic like that? Nah he can carry one himself.

Excellent piece of work with this one. :)

Now I would like to ask you a tremendous favour. I am writing a piece of fiction titled, Das Boot Imperialis, based off Warhammer 40,000, and I was thinking of introducing a heavy weapons expert of some kind. Your Imperial Guard Veteran here, would fit the bill perfectly. So may I please attach a link to my fiction that leads to this pic and use your characters likeness in my fiction? I wont mind if you refuse, it is your right as the creator of this piece. Thanks hey.

further note:
I think the new IG codex rules allow for more personalized upgrades for vetran units table top wise, I don know about a full power suit but you could probably make a heavy armor squad.

interesting, just tooling about and found this, hmm I would say minus the built in vulcan this light power armor design could be more then feasable. In any case kick ass design and pic.

Gotta pity this guy if he ain't got the power pack; it'll be heavy carrying these stuff.
And yes, if you want them to be stronger, you can equip them with the stronger but more expensive power armour.

You should commission the idea to Forgeworld and Games workshop. Even if they don't like it as a carapace armor design they still don't have the new IG codex for 5th edition out yet, maybe we can get a last minute "battle-armor" addition to the list. It would probably be twice as expensive as carapace armor and still only make us half as good as marines though haha.

Awesome design.

Who knows......maybe somewhere a very rich and well off IMP company actually has access to these armours.


That is before they are looked into for techo heresy and what ever else they might get that screw them.

Incredible design, its too bad that Imperial Guard can't wear anything like that to even the odds with Space Marines or Choas Space Marines. Its a pretty good pic though.

That looks more like Astartes armor, especially with the arm mounted assault cannon. DoW doesn't accurately represent all the various choices a guard army has available to them. The ones in the game just have lasguns and flak armor. If you want to see Guard with better equipment, try reading some of the books.
