Tank hunting by jeenhoong Tank hunting by jeenhoong
False Hope veteran squad ambushing 2 Tau hammerhead gunships near the outskirt of a secluded village on the planet of Khaldo, eastern fringe.
The medieval planet of Khaldo had always been considered as a part of Tau territory due to 3 main reason. 1-the Tau sees the neglected imperial world as a fresh source of guevesa soldiers fighting for them on various Tau borders. 2- the Tau wishes to convert the dark age planet into a heavily militarized outpost for further dominance over the sector 3- The Tau earth caste recently uncover a rare mineral in Khaldo which is 3 times more effective than their current plasma catalyst, they wishes to take over the world's mineral trade and denied its use to the Imperium.

words spread fast. sensitive Guard tacticians uncovered the truth and regiments began to deploy on Khaldo to counter the Tau threat. False Hope Phantom XIV, a new regiment founded out of the remnants of False Hope Phantom XI, which is decorated for their exploits in killing many Tau during their 2 campaigns; had been deployed to the eastern quadrant of Khaldo, as well as other regiments like the Mecurian Heavy, the Nafiz Greyguards, the Cadian 555th, the Gazzarian grenadiers, etc. on different parts of the planet.
the war for Khaldo had just begun.

as with the previous art, the Tau letters of the hull of the gunships mean something. Kudos to whoever that find out. ^^

correction:
color tone, contrast and gradient balance

I figure if the guy on the far right jams that charge into the air intake on the side of one of the tank's engines (not the part blasting fire, of course, but on the side of the nacelle) he'd have a good chance of knocking it out. That would make the other tank stop to cover it while the crew gets out and tries to fix the problem. The riflemen in the trees could pick them off pretty easily from that point on. Wouldn't even have to disable both tanks to kill their crews.

God I love ambush tactics.

Sounds rather advanced for being the imperial guard.

Catachans specialize in such tactics mind you, and almost any imperial guard regiment can implement such tactics given the right situation

Oh yea, hes just gonna chuck the bayonet at the HammerHead head on, and its going to somehow end up in the Plasma core (or whatever they use to power those things), and its gonna go nuclear. nothing wrong with that :D.

Indeed, but that all depends on where the explosion is and who its engulfing.

Oh man, the background just kicks ass!! Those trees, rocks and houses, they're so superbly and realistically drawn! Great Hammerheads as well, and the characters are nice too - I like how you put individuality in them, the expressions as varied and believable.

I support Stadno's words, you really improved on this piece - I see some nice atmosphere perspective, and the planes on the picture are separated as they should have. Everything's readable, and the composition is quite good, no more meshing because of the same level of detail.

+fave :D
