Dude, this artwork got me into War Hammer. I went to a library years ago now just browsing books on the Sci-|Fi corner, my gaze stopped smack on this out of a host of other books - the motion, and desperate chaos O_O - After staring at it for a long time I went home to figure out how to get into War Hammer. Alas I only got as far as Eisenhorn and the Space Marine books - but I ended up actually making a sketch of this image, it's on my channel.

Years later, I can't sleep - I come browsing Deviant Art and look what I randomly stumble onto whilst stalking through random artists Favourites. Serendipity my friend. Thank you for your work.

Pretty sure that's Calhoun from Wreck-It Ralph. She looks amazing.

Thank you for clarifying.
This art is what inspired me to read the Shira Calpurnia series and it is definitely one of my favorite Warhammer novels. Found her staring out at me at a Barnes & Noble and was immediately curious as badass ladies in sci-fi are a huge draw for me. So glad someone linked me here from Goodreads, your work is amazing, really love that mix of sleek and gritty. The work has so much attitude and character, not to mention a sense of dynamic motion that seems to carry through much of your work. 
I believe you have captured the spirit of this particular occupation, not everybody wants to be an enforcer and often times the position is thrust upon the individual because for lack of more capable candidates he or she will have to do.  Whatever drives the enforcer is truly  a force that is almost elemental, whether they are armed to the teeth, masters of the martial arts, or just old fashioned get-this-job-done old schoolers, there is no substitute for them.  Beautiful piece!Teika Looks Away Icon

Awesome! As someone else said, I really love her face, also the sheer dynamism of her pose. This looks great!

Love the background and the characters outfit is very strong. I'm feel the character needs a bit more masculine features. The color of the lips a more gray then purple to give that tied look. Perhaps chin a big more square then sharp. Just to get that feminine look out unless that's what you were going for, assuming this is a male character.

She is the Sister of Battle?

Based on her weaponry, I'd say Adeptus Arbites instead.

You made this?!? Holy crap I did not know that! I really enjoyed the Shira Calpurnia omnibus. I didn't realise Games Workshop commissions other artists before, probably cause they don't like to publicise anything but themselves...
