This is very impressive piece, the Guard have always been my favorite faction in 40k. There is just so much diversity and the fact that they go into battle with little more than a pop gun and a flak jacket just makes them more awesome to me.

To be honest I've always wanted to see a regiment based off WWII Imperial Japan, I think there could be a lot of potential there for fluff and art.

"a regiment based off WWII Imperial Japan"

So widely and wildly incompetent?

If that's how you wanna think about then you can go right ahead, however "incompetent" is the last word I would use to describe the Japanese as a whole at any point in history.

Then you don't know their history in the Second World War.

This is an idea who will be exploited if we can in the future.

I think it would turn out really well, I will look forward to more art of any kind in the future though.

That's an incredible picture. Belongs on box art. Is there a higher res version available?

Have you done any pictures of the Tanith 1st?

Actually not, Tanith 1st represents a big work on the history (for campaigns) so not ye but maybe in the future.

Have you read the books?  Dan Abnett's description of their uniforms doesn't quite square with artwork and 'Eavy Metal paint jobs.  I have to admit, I prefer the artist's style.  But I love that the book has them using halftracks, attack cycles and the odd non-Chimera APC.

I gotta find a way to make cheap and decent conversions of those guys, and represent them in the current rules.  I once heavily converted Catachans.  Kitted them out, shaved the arms down, added hair and gave them shin puttees.  They still stood out a bunch.  Wish Forge World would give them a little love.

 Darndest thing is, I can't field all the characters.  There's no point where all the heroes and major supporting characters from the books are together.

I think.

We have all the book but only first one is finished. Victoria lamb Miniature is a good alternative for Tanith.
