Techguard Vs Tyranids by StugMeister Techguard Vs Tyranids by StugMeister
Yes!!! I've finally finished this pic!

It's taken far, far too long as I'm sure you'll all agree. I don't know how many hours it's taken to be exact, but if I were to hazard a guess I reckon it's probably about 6-8hrs?

There's lots I'd like to improve in the pic such as the texture in the foreground and tidying up some of the details but otherwise I feel its as finished as I'm prepared to make it!

Either the Mechanicus runs out of bullets or the Tyranids runs out of biomass

That Warlord looks to be in trouble. Sure, it looks like he's about to kill the Biotitan, but he's taken some decent damage. Plus, we have reserves.

Yup, the tracked guys in the background are the Skitarii.

Although this pic was in fact done before Titanicus came out, so all the details are based on the fluff available before then.

sorry for say it, but they are looking more equal to tech-priests!
tech-guardists are high-modified for battle, they might even have some extra limbs and other things useful for fighting, and they are more armed than with a plasma-pistol or other handguns.
And they wear no robes!
Robes are worn only by tech-priests, the so called magos, or higher ranks of the Deus Mechanicus...
non the less a superb pic, quite amazingly showing that even a high-tech folk could not resist the hunger of the hive-mind!
Epi man, thats for sure!

so those are the techpriests, they're mentioned a lot in DoW2 but i've never seen one. cool.

StugMeister Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think you can find them in one of the DoW1 games? But I think they're Engineseers rather than full-blown AdMech Techpriests.

Cheers for the thumbs up! :ahoy: :)

The TG are going to be eaten... At least the tyranids won't find much food in their augmented bodies. If it's any comfort.
