Tanith Trench Warfare by Goottipoju Tanith Trench Warfare by Goottipoju
Long time no Tanith so here's one :D Been reading Straight Silver these couple of days. cant remember how many times i've read the books but I just cant get enough of them :D

Anyways inspired by Straight Silver here are some Tanith grunts fighting the shadik forces in Aexegary. :)

Thank you Dan Abnett for writing these awesome stories <3

PS. Careful while reading the comments if you haven't read the books! Might contain spoilers.

I'm guessing those are the regular Ghosts and not the scouts since they aren't wearing forage hats. Also if I remember right the regulars sometimes wore kepis.

I know one of the characters says:
"TRENCH WAR IS THE STUPIDIST KIND OF WARFARE!!"

I really love how you have tracers just everywhere. Really gives a chaotic feel to the battle scene. I also like how you have that chaos renegade's chest being dismantled by what lookes like auto-gun fire. I've not read the GG novels, so I'm not sure as to what type of weapons the Tanith use. Just doesn't feel like las, or look it.

Thanks :D

Yeah the Tanith use lasguns which have nalwood stocks. And the ones who were added to the regiment from vervunhive use a shorter version of a lasgun that has a wireframe folding stock. If my memory serves me right :P.

Honestly I've never put too much thought to the design in these pictures. I've tried more to concentrate on the mood of the picture and to get the feel of combat across.

You certainly achived your intention. The feeling behind the firefight scenes is powerful.
