these guys make the IG remotely playable in the first dawn of war game. never liked IG in tabletop. using these guys to leap-frog your troops across the map. takes forever, but minimizes losses, especially if you use them as the back leg (providing 'covering fire' of sorts) for snipers, Ogren and other heavier infantry.
Main thing DoW1 suffers from is tiny, tiny maps. the maps are beautifully detailed, but those details keep any movement from being smooth.

Anyway, this piece is great! i really like the colors and also the authenticity of their expression. the gunner in particular looks pretty without-hope.

With that color scheme, they looked a little like Gue'vesa at first glance.

They have a similar colour scheme to an Imperial Guard regiment I'm working on at they moment; just make the green fatigues red and they'd be basically the same :)

That is one dismayed looking heavy gunner, reminds me of this classic Simpsons clip: www.youtube.com/watch?v=z--oPg…

"English instructions ruined, must use High Gothic side! "Pullius Triggerius" What the hell is that!?"

the funny part is when the space marine walks by and just picks it up...with one hand.

Yeah and then he just walks off with it, using up all its ammo to boot: "Hey hey hey, that's not your bolter! Oh come on demigod, we needed that...."

And thus, the Imperial defense of Graia was doomed by one greedy Ultramarine.

Yeah but the Ultramarine pretty much won the war for them afterwards....so in the end you had an Ultramarine with badass shades smoking a cigar, while some Imperial Guardsman grumbling and serving him huge carvings of meat.

"Okay the manual said to put the belt feed on this but why does it feel like it should be on the other side...."
"Trooper! Just pick a bloody side or I'm going to hit you with one of these heavy ammo hoppers which I'm very sure are heavy as hell."
"I'm going.....just need to put this scope I stole from some Tau on..."

Using forbidden technology on your heavy bolter will give you a bad time....

"Nah, bullets don't fit."

I would say that being an Imperial Guardsman offers you plenty of reasons for being sad :D

truth!. IG: making the space marines look just that much better at anything a normal person could possibly do (except dying, which IG are the best in all of the emperor's many worlds at doing)
