No Retreat, No Surrender by MajesticChicken No Retreat, No Surrender by MajesticChicken
Colored up this apocalyptic pic of Imperial Guardsmen & co. trying to hold back the Tyranid swarm.

Original artist I think is John Blanche.

hey if you mange to hold out long enough and not loose too many guardsmen you might just buy enough time to let the astrates take all the credit.

The only thing in the Universe, that is more incompetent than the Imperium?

There are far more incompetent things than movie Stormtroopers. Signs aliens come to mind for one.

WOW! I wonder if this guy realises this is from the IG omnibus. all it is is just with more color and less picture

MajesticChicken Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
I am well aware of that, which may be why I said I only colored it in the original description as well as not claiming to be the original artist.

Provide proof? because I have yet to see any proof regarding your claim, where I do have proof because I got the Codex.

Well, they're being assaulted by tyrannids, most of the in a normal situation should have had a awfull death even if the aftermatch was a imperial victory. Is logic.
Reply
:iconmygoodgovernor:
MygoodGovernor Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
Well your 'Logic' is about as important as an ant is being stomped on.

You have failed to provide any proof on how many deaths there were, you have failed to provide any evdience that they did not win the battle.

And you have a biased Anti-Guard mentaility.

So anything you have to say is nothing more than the ravings of a Troll.

I bid you good day sir!

I actually like the guard enought to corrupt them and field them my friend. And no, I'm no troll, I just know that a human life is weak and frail and many of the man in that image should have fallen to the tyranids because that's the way the guard win battles, pilling corpses of their own. They are no better than butchers for their own men, and that's a fact. That's the way most of the officers in the guard play they "chips", and many times it works. Like in the immage of that battle, the nids have reached their lines, many deaths, even in victory, that's the way the guard is.

Once Again your 'logic' is flawed and is that of an obnoxious toad, you gladly focus on The Guardsmen's deaths or turning them Evil. Your so called 'Logic' and 'facts' are nothing more than the ravings of a Biased Alien Lover

And who says your my Friend? We are not friends,

Nothing sickens me more than 'your' type of people, Those who either Hate or enjoy fucking with Humanity for thier own twisted mind, and get a kick out of thier suffering.

yeah we are done here. Xeno Loving Toad. >:(

Glad ya dig it, I find old-school GW pics to be the toughest to color, can't figure out why, so thankfully I don't run across em too much.

What a magnificent piece of artistry. My compliments to you, master colorer of art. I should have the link set up by tonight. To quote an old proverb made famous during Pearl Harbor, "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!" In other words, keep up the good work.
