Praetorian Life Guard by jeenhoong Praetorian Life Guard by jeenhoong
early concept

A centurion

----

personally i hate the pith helmet like those wear by the british copper or the colonial armies, looks like honest man being paid to wear a tit on their heads. changed the the fething thing into a phrygian helmet, now all me troubles seemed so far away, lalalaal~

----

Praetoria is a hive world deep in squalor and degradation. All materials planetside have been rationed, including oxygen. But population keep on rising, and thus the planet keep churning out cannon fodder to feed the emperor's crusade across the stars.

life guards are ruthless and couragous, disciplined beyond reckoning and led by their officers, have earned their names in the annals of the imperium.

lastly +100 against orks.

I am sorry, but i can't help myself given his name and expression

His Thoughts-"Goddamn it i should be on the front lines, not making sure some lousy civilian gets eaten by a Bladeshark or drowns at the beech"

I'm a long term fan and collector of Praetorian's, I don't think I can really add anything that has'nt already been said by others. None the less I've got to add, that this is a fantastically gritty and charactful depiction, I absolutely love it.

Dude, that's purely awesome!
I personaly love the pith Helmets, but the idea of putin' a prhygian cavalry helmet is just brilliant (I don't know if you make some figs, but it had to be cool to convert like this !
And the graphism is just brilliant, like ever !
Thanks for such a stylish exercise ! :#1:

As a collector of the Praetorians, I may have to find a way to add the plume to the helmet. Jolly good work old boy.

All hail Praetoria! I especially love the glaring eye you're giving him. Though really I think their victories are due to their shere amount of hate for xenos races, their loathing of their existence and how they're inferior to Praetorians and for that matter all of humanity.
