IMPERIAL GUARD Blood Of Heroes by IADM IMPERIAL GUARD Blood Of Heroes by IADM
My first depiction of the Warhammer 40.000 universe...

The backbone of the Imperium.
The nameless heroes.
The Imperial Guard

Specifically the Cadian 42nd Mechanized Cavalry Squad 144.

"Any Cadian who can't field-strip his own lasgun by age ten was born on the wrong planet." Anonymous

This is a commission for *DarkKnightCuron

So...What do you think?

I really like the cammo.:salute:

Oh! I almost forget it. Here´s the soundtrack for this one Megadeth. Blood of Heroes.[link]

Oh hell yes. Your style really fits the universe in my opinion, I'd like to see you illustrate for a 40k comic.

Id like to do that but so far no one has commissioned me something like that... If you know someone please let me or them know and we can work something out.

Thanks for the comment Dimitry. I just did what the client asked for, this was my frist depiction of the IG and I wasnt very informed about the whole thing.

Well, this is a great shame, Warhammer 40.000 universe is very diverse, and deeper understanding of it would certainly be useful to you as an artist who delves into realm of Sci-Fi.

Well, yes i know Dimitry but Im not much of a war gamer myself so Im not very used to it. I know what Ive read doing my research and what my friends tell me about it.

Always with an extra "i" in the beginning...

Beside, knowing such things doesn't force you to play the wargame. Lexicanum, for example, is a great source of information of such kind.

Lexicanum is where I do my research.
Thanks for pointing it because its a great site.

Great job, although it would have been nice to see what guardsmen were fighting rather than just seeing them shoot a lot.

Well, the job was IG centered. Thats why there are no enemies there.
This is what the client wanted and clients always have the last word.
