Mordian Ironhearts by jeenhoong Mordian Ironhearts by jeenhoong
Mordian is the embodiment of the Nazi and 3rd reich in 40k setting. Being racist, pure blood, uniform, jewsterminatus, hitlol, yadda yadda and awesome weaponries and discipline~

the hive world is a highly regimented society, its subjects separated by a caste system of high spire, mid spire, lower spire and underhive inhabitants. Majority of Mordia citizen are conscripted into the guard as imperial tithe, it is a tradition, of martial servitude.

but of course, as you would guess, a low spire soldier could not become lord commander, even if he is blessed by the emprah. the caste system is both a political governing body of the masses as well as a tool of discipline. Officers only came from the top spire and men of lower tiers are to serve them without questions, or it is heresy. With this, throughout millennias, the reputation of the Ironguard as a ruthless, discipline and effective martial force is forged.


Ironhearts is senior veterans of the low spire, (mid spire can buy their way into junior officer while underhivers is cursed with a lifetime as levy troops and cannon fodder) their years of service marking them as heroes of the regiment they come from, but could not promote any further into officer school due to the caste system. Thusly, created the storm-trooper/elite role where they serve out the ends of their lives. Younger Mordians look up to them as grandfather exemplars, legendary hero figures, the old breed, the soul of the fighting regiment and they rally around them. Ironhearts are as much as a spiritual core as well as a fearsome fighting machine. Skills honed throughout a lifetime of war and carnage, these men are cold blooded killers who said farewell to mercy and compassion along with the foes they have slayed along the way, long time ago. what is left is just the honor of serving the imperium till the last day of their life. Most have serious augmentic surgery and holders of the prestigious Iron Aquilla and Macharius Sash.


Just need to finish this, been put too long away and skill level is so different now it is hard to finish.

ps: greater good illuminated, with imperial steel~

More than nazist propaganda, watch the WW1 propaganda and photos: the bigger part of GW's "inspiration" comes from that grim war where people actually died without great results.
Every european army had its "commissars" during that war.
Anyway, great job with these veterans!

I am a big fan of the technology the germans had during the war,but not a fan of what they stood for, or even what they did for that matter. Cool illustration mate. Is it on paper, just wondering.

I think Mordians are closer to WWI Austere-Hungarians.

Or even Franco-Prussian War Prussians.

Scratch that, ESPECIALLY Prussians.

When I first saw this picture, I thought it was a WW2 era Kuomingtang-themed Guardsman.
