My 40K FOR 10 K. by DESTRAUDO My 40K FOR 10 K. by DESTRAUDO

Something old, something new, something borrowed something tau. XD

Will probably come back in a few days and tweak it.

I wanted with this to try and paint up in detail a moment which is less likely to have been illustrated officially in the 40k canon. lots of pictures of epic violence, far less so of eating a space burrito.

Thanks 40k for all the pageviews and comments you have given before this, and may the emperor of mankind rise again or rot depending on your personal belief preference. XD

I believe that there may be a slight mistake in the details.  The enlarged shoulder guard should go on the left shoulder, should it not?  Since 99.99% of people are assumed to be right handed shooters, that lets them put it between the enemy and themselves when they assume a shooting position.  Left handed shooters are certainly not out of the question as I am one myself, but I thought I would point it out.

This is quite impressive, however, and I do like it a lot.  There is a very nice contrast between the hardened veteran and the fresh from training rookie.  His armor and weapon are faded and scored with damage, while hers have not a scratch.  And I bet the burrito is quite tasty.

Tau should paint their stealth suits purple. Ork kommandos paint themselves purple and it works.

Very nice. I like these calm moments in the Warhammer 40k universe. It's also very well made - the detail, the lighting, both excellent!

You can almost feel the fear/confusion the rookie is dealing with in his mind - nervously playing around with his helmet - like no one ever told him what its really like to be on the battlefield. The veteran knows exactly what that rookie is going through. I like to think the veteran goes "he'll get over it... eventually" in his mind. - atleast thats the way I feel about this picture. Very well done - and it feels so alive - immediate favorite!!

A rare relaxed moment in 40k. They aren't screaming with their eyes bulged out with about 10 000 of their buddies (larger ones slightly farther off in the background) charging 10 000 of some other group doing the same thing. I really like the bit of story in it, the new reinforcement and the old worn veteran, and the absolute disdain some people are able to communicate over a space burrito. An amazing piece, all round, you're very talented. I wonder if I commented on this before.

Wait... That facial breathing slit... Is the younger fire Warrior a female? I seem to recall the Y-shaped slits being feminine.

Also, I really love this. 40k is a very over-the-top universe, but I've always loved people taking realistic approached to it, imho, this is where things like the Tau Empire and the Imperial Guard shines. :D

I can't help but to think how uncomfortable those neck-sleeves are though - reminds me of wearing a balaclava while exhausted back in the army - it creates an effect where you feel you can't breathe properly.
