It seems I'm back on a Warhammer 40k bent.
I did the lines for this late last year and only today got around to coloring it. One of my 40k story ideas involves a guerrilla war raging through the lower levels of an upscale hive-city. For this, I wanted an Imperial Guard regiment dedicated to city-fighting.
These guys are typically armed with a snub-las repeater. It's got adequate medium-range accuracy when set to single-fire mode. In auto-fire mode its accuracy is horrid, but it's able to absolutely fill a confined space with las-fire, and when sweeping through alleyways and clearing buildings, that's a must-have feature.
On top of their standard fatigues and soft armor, they wear a series of ballistic plates, shaped specifically to deflect solid projectiles away from vital body parts. It's also capable of deflecting at least some of the force of las-rounds, but it can still be burned through if a las-round hits it square-on.
Also, does anyone have a name for the planet these guys come from? They still need a name.
