Reinforcements by LordDoomhammer Reinforcements by LordDoomhammer
The Orks attack one of the remaining bastions of imperial forces. When all hope seems lost, hope comes in form of a squad of crimson fists arriving at the point of defeat, to turn it into a victory. The remaining forces defended the line with the help of the Space Marines, managing to push back the enemy´s attack.
A heavy price was paid, but this victory lies not in the numbers, but in the morale of the people, for they can once more hope for survival.
But another threat is already on its way. Heavy thunder echoes across the wide desert and a new colossal enemy arrives. Without heavy artillery or Titans, the Imperial Guard doesn´t stand a chance in fighting them. The Adeptus astartes however decide to take the initiative, to make an assault, which one could describe either as heroic or just stupid. But it is just a matter of time whether they will win, for the Salamanders are on their way to join up with their brothers, or this world is lost...

Finally a continuation! And good news: the next one is already underway ;)
As always: I used reference for the Space Marine from the video game with the same name^^
Well...


The story goes on here:


Hope you like it! :)

You do the Imperial Guard a disservice, the Guard always, and always will: HOLD THE MOTHERFUCKING LINE. Space Marines just exist to steal the IG's glory.

I understand your point of view and you're absolutely correct about the IG the hold the line, but I think it's too harsh on the Astartes, despite them getting all the attention. Glad you like it nonetheless! :)

Nice piece! Though I'm honestly not so good with people yet, so there won't be anything like this from my side in the near future ;)

I know, right? Guard does all the heavy lifting, wears the enemy down while taking damning losses, rally, and push them back. Then a fucking drop Pod dicks out of the sky and lands on the enemy warboss and they call it 'A glorious SM victory.'

here you see the space marine.
just ignore the fleet of imperial guard tanks behind him.
the space marine is more likely to survive.

cool drawing anyway :)

That is some exceptional work! :)

I really like the proportions of the space marine's armor, as well as the highlights, chips, and other details you did to it. Same goes for the tracer fire and the perspective on the Leman Russ tanks.

The Fists could do with some Guardsman support after all since they take the brunt of the 41st millenium.

Wow! Very cool, man! Especially very good job with light and perespective. The proportions of marine is good also. He seemed to just come out of the Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine game, but it isn't bad, conversly actually. 5/5 man!
