False Hope Sharpshooters by jeenhoong False Hope Sharpshooters by jeenhoong
Another illustration bound for my upcoming codex.

When the jagged and ancient stone formations on shrine world Salamis burst into life and revealed several webway portals, with numerous Alaitoc craftworld eldars pouring forth for reasons unknown; the Imperial authority there was dying to know their motives for this unexpected visit.

False Hope Phantom VIII was one of many regiments fighting over the world from the grasp of a Ork Warband in the southern coastal continents and isles.

When the starstriders moved into their area of operation, the False Hope commander have as much suspicion on them as the Imperial Tactica high Command. Wasting no time, several sharpshooter units were dispatched to observe the Eldars on remote jungle isles and atolls.

Unit 39, Corporal Markus Roper & Pfc. Balin Salem had meet their elusive foes, perhaps too close for comfort.

Alien versus predator (in human form) ^^

Human Sharpshooters:
Cunning +4
Semi auto rifle +3
0 armor

Alien Rangers:
Psychic foresight +5
Needle Rifle +2
Wraithbone armor +4

any bet? ^^"

Hm the humans might not make it out of there considering the odds (even though it's quite that those don't mean that much in real live if low enough)

There is no shotgun, do you see a shotgun, I don't see any shotguns.

Great work though, their expressions are very lifelike.

One aspect of this image that I like particularly is how the Eldar genuinely have their alien characteristics emphasised. Yes, they're Space Elves, but most of DeviantArt represents that as "kawaii anime" pointy-ears rather than the unearthly elongated forms depicted here, and it's a welcome change of pace and more suitable for your realistic style. I also appreciate how this picture isn't just a static pose but has a sense of narrative as well - you can see how the Rangers have stolen up on the men, with the middle Ranger studying one of their muzzles as if to say "Heh. Cute."

One criticism would be the rifle of the right-hand man - it has a strange perspective, and appears flat with inadequate depth. That's only one small blemish in an otherwise fine picture, though.

-INSTA SAVE- Its finally out and goddamned does it look Glorious! All I can say for its epicness is mmm mmmmm mmmmmmmmm. I also say the Snipers have got the advantage over the Xenos. Though the Eldar have Psyker abilities and better agility the False Hopers are great Stealthers and the moss camo is a great help too. Seems its time they slit some Eldar throat. Oh and according to a certain DA member's review of the new Rulebook: "Eldar are the mysterious Assholes."

Oh this is epic, I'm really glad that you did render the foreground and background differently so the planes don't mesh. Great job overall.

As for the outcome, hmm, dunno, can be anyone. But watching loyalists and eldar kill each other is always an intriguing sight. I'll go for the popcorn)
