Wh40K: IG Command Group by StugMeister Wh40K: IG Command Group by StugMeister
I recently finished this as a commission for Epic-UK. It was one of two pics used as prizes for this year's Epic Grand Tournament.

This pic took me probably about four hours in PS CS1.

Imperial Guard officers discuss their next move after reducing the Ork-held hive city Roanoake Secundus.

The trench works are fantastic! I just wish the map was noticeable upside down because we all know the majority of IG commanders are incompetent. I mean there are 3 there trying to read the map :P

Agreed. But I think the Orks are far enough away.

Once again you have captured the spirit of the IG with perfection. The background is just as interesting as the the fore. I like this one quite a bit.

Very cool. Shouldn't there be a fog of war which obscures the ground a little more? What with all the weapon discharges and dust being thrown up by such a large engagement. Still, I love what you did with the craters and such.

I get what you mean about adding fog and smoke; it was something I tried as I finished the pic, but I felt to obscured too much of the detail.

RedZealot6 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011
Makes sense. But, then, wouldn't the fog and smoke also be considered details?

:D The giant stove-pipe hats inspired that impression anyway and with the variety of the Guard you can have all manner of stiff-upper lipped British regiments: like the pith helmeted Praetorians!

Ah the Praetorians - I remember them well. In fact, I bought the original boxed set when they were first released as a special edition. :)

The proportions of the city seem off when compared with the tanks, but it's a nicely composed piece nonetheless.

How'd you mean about the city? The size of it?
Reply
:iconhenskelion:
Henskelion Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010
Should be much bigger, I'd say, since unless I'm mistaken, the Imperium only really builds cities like that if they're huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge.
