Death Korps of Krieg: Tribute by Howard-33 Death Korps of Krieg: Tribute by Howard-33
The Death Korp of Krieg are interesting Imperial Guard units from Warhammer 40,000. This is my attempt at a crest style image for the Death Korps.

hello Howard-33

i am working on a very important project, it is a novelisation about the death krops.

I am currently looking for a cover which would suit the storyline perfectly, i am very interested in your art and was hoping that you would provide me permission to use this image as my cover, i am hoping that you will accept and reply as soon as possible

Try telling that to one of them XD

Very impressive. I could totally see this as a regiment banner. Although, the right head of the Aquila should be blind, it's eye closed.
Howard-33 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012
Thank you. You're absolutely right about the eye. I wasn't thinking about that when I created the image. Over all though, I'm still pretty happy with the work.

I once made a single Death Korps soldier out of a Cadian Command Squad sprue. I took the body wearing the trenchcoat and filed off the shoulder pads. Then I gave him a Cadian head with a helmet that had shades on it, filed it down until it looked decently like a Death Korps helmet and put a gasmask over his mouth.

He looks pretty cool, but I don't know exactly what color the DK color their uniforms. I've seen different examples, do you know if this look is pretty typical of an officer?

BeowulfDoomhammer Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
This is awesome! The Death Korps rules!
Howard-33 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2009
Thank you very much. It's been some time since I last upped an image,that's do more to issues with time management rather than interest.

I do hope to get back to it before long as I have already done preliminary work on character creation for the next couple of images I have in mind.

Hopefully, when they are completed and posted they will be ones you find interesting as well.

Oh yeah, DeathKorp rule! :headbang:
mrmilner Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2009
wow the rendering on that is truly amazing!
MouseDenton Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2009
I like it! I really like it! (at first I was thinking along the lines of WWI but then I saw the ALICE harness system)
Howard-33 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009
Thank you very much. This has to be one of the best pieces I have created, based on responses alone.
Big0Jack Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2009
Haha, I like how you gave him ALICE webbing instead of the WWI-ish belt/suspenders.

I have to admit I used this image as the excuse for using ALICE webbing for my DKoK cosplay. :p
Howard-33 Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2009
I'm glad you liked it. When I was putting the image together, it just looked right that way.

NexusElite Featured By Owner May 31, 2009
Amazing 3d work there, i would definitely buy this mesh if it was up for sell.
Skitarii Featured By Owner May 14, 2009
The most fucking badass regiment (besides the Elysians and Steel legion)
VAFeuerstein Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2009
very nice work

I really like the way you set this up, it's a fine way to depict these masters of the trenches (and WW1 troops in all their grimdark splendor)

I'm looking into playing death korps too, if only the models weren't so expensive (forgeworld is a blessing and a curse, no?)

Howard-33 Featured By Owner May 12, 2009
Death Korp are a very interesting army. I will definantly be revisiting them at some point for more images.
Corporal-Yakob Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2009
Simply amazng...and my favourite IG troops as well!
Kristovich Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2008
Ah, I like it! A tribute to Achim Jagg and company, might it be? ;P
Howard-33 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2008
I am actually really digging the Death Korp series that Richard Marsden is writing over at [link] This was actually created before his series, or atleast before I read it, but it can still be viewed as a tribute to his well written characters.
Kristovich Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2009
I know about the DK-series all right, I go by the name of Kristo over on BL.

Ah, so that's how it is... Still a very nice job! Just a quick Q if I may, what softwere (if any!) did you use?
Howard-33 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2009
Thank you for leaving a comment. Sorry I haven't responded before now, but I'v been caught up with other hobbies for abit. I used Poser7 and Photoshop in the creation of the image.

Fine poster! It would make a perfect propaganda recruiting poster for the Korps.

Wow... Saying this is awesome is an understatement, this poster of the Death Korps of Krieg is incredibly well made =)
BenWolfe Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2008
This is a spectacular piece, but isn't the Imperial Eagle supposed be missing its eyes on one of the heads?
Hendrickspro Featured By Owner May 24, 2008
Victory or Death, The Death Korps Way!

Awesome Work, have you thought about giving them the spike capped helmet, similar to german design?
Kampfhamsternine Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
