They have their Ba staffs so they are well in with the gods..... This illustration attracted me to the book.

Amazing... I love the intricacy, and I actually got to visit Egypt a while, long ago, so I've been to the pyramids... I have to say, you absolutely nailed the look, it's perfect I feel like I'm standing there again.

I can see U.S. soldiers looking like this 30 years down the road.

I give it 80-100 before everything you see is operational for the form it was intended.

this is really an amazing piece you did, without the use of words I can feel the epic nature of this universe, the unnamed conflicts, the history of violence that this world is steeped in to such a fantastic degree... shaping it into a cynical, throwaway sort of reality. Yet it is not without hope, there is still humanity within this world shaped by ever growing conflict and military complex.

Without knowing anything about the milieu I can see a very anachronistic styling to the more exotic weapons... reminds me of stargate: sg1.

End of Gibbering.

those helmets and headsets are super cool. You should use them in another painting.
