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.
i could make this one only need some tau, space marine and guard parts and some cuting and i should be able to make the armor but for the gun i am not sure maby replace it with a storm bolter but il try to make it
WILL SOMEONE MAKE A FIGURE OF THIS, I will literally devote the rest of my life to the table top game if this guy was made into a figure could someone tell me if such a guy exists or is it possible to achieve him?
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.
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.
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.
yeah....we have the dreadnought tho' and we have drop-pods to get our terminators in close with chainfists on your baneblade XD or we could just use a demolisher squad. but im sure you could do sumthin similar. XD IMPERIUM OWNS ALL!!
