Striking Scorpions 1 by SkyWhiteFox Striking Scorpions 1 by SkyWhiteFox
My mega time consuming personal project... drawing some manner of epic battle set in the Warhammer 40k universe!

Striking Scorpions seen here battling(and probably massacreing) Imperial Guardsmen(Cadian, from the looks of the uniform). In the back, you see a Striking Scorpions Exarch armed with chainsabres engaging an Imperial Commissar in close combat. Further back, two Eldar Vypers come out of the clouds and starts to strafe the ground(presumably at other IG units) while one gets real lucky with a Lightning kill using a Brightlance(I repeat, REAL LUCKY).

I, however, think I murder the pict with a crap background xD

I particularly enjoyed drawing this picture though, especially the Striking Scorpions(and it's Exarch). I'd still like to get criticism, because, frankly, my drawings never reached this level of epicness before. And I sucked at gore xP

All soldiers and stuff seen here are copyrighted to GamesWorkshop.

I did not based this drawing on anything. It all came out randomly, without the knowledge of how that cover art of your mention looked.

Anyway, thank you for the crit.

Looking at this pic, I just wish I'm lucky enough to even slaughter that many troops with my scorpions.

xD Do you often go up against swarm type armies?

Actually, I went up against Tyranids once or twice, but I was slaughtered both times, and that was before I added more to my seer council...but then again I found an army that I should be hating more than 'nids, seconded only to the Tau, and that is the Necrons!

Booyah, the Necrons. Of course you should fear them, though they may be losing their WBB special rule, being replaced with an augmentable Feel No Pain.

I really hated it when those necrons came back to life...it was a good game though, but that didn't change the fact that I hated necrons from that day forth.

At least I didn't face any pariahs in that army...no, all my opponent had was a monolith, 4 destroyers, a lord, about 9 scarab models, and about 30 warriors. No immortals or pariahs...that would have sucked.

Yeah, you are lucky. A good Necron commander with sufficient Immortals could own the battlefield.

'The hunt was over. They had stalked the mon-keigh for days, as little more than shadows in the dark. They had been patient long enough. The ancient mind of the Exarch sent a single impulse to his fellow hunters, and instantly they fell upon the human rabble with all the fury of War itself.'

That is ridiculously cool. But then, they are Striking Scorpions. Cool is what they do :D

Yeah, despite their striking green colour of the armour, they can manage to remain undetected. How much cooler can an infiltrator unit be? xD
