Default IMAGE: Dreadnought Ambush

Wasn't sure where to put this and I know this is the text section, there's just not an "image" section other than possibly Enclave and that didn't sound right.

Anyway, here, I made this today:


By frozenfoxx at 2007-07-16

It's a chop of this image http://fr.games-workshop.com/40k/spa...readnought.jpg and this image http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4.../gallery/8.htm.

I made this as a crazy idea I had of a Kroot Carnivore crashing into a Space Marine dreadnought before the rest of his/her Kindred also slammed into it. I've tried to change the tone of the original image which featured the fearsome might of the Space Marines mowing down the Orks to one where the Orks' allies stage an ambush of unprecedented speed and heroism.

This version does not feature text. I am planning on making another version or two with text.

Kroot, Space Marines, Warhammer, and Warhammer 40,000 are property of Games Workshop. The two images used to make this were freely available from their website. Created with the GIMP.

I can go into a list about what's been done to the images (like extension and modification of smoke) but I figure most people here probably just want to see it. Enjoy.

I dunno, I'm putting money on the Kroot's Kindred right behind him, no doubt about to topple it with sheer numbers.

Besides, it looks like the Dread's got his hands "full."


I'm glad two people like it. I'll see if I can do another one sometime or put some nice text on this one.

Anyways, sounds like fun, great to see the end job.

Heh, I like it.


I think the orks will hold it up long enough for the Kroot to slice up the rear armour

Very nice, and it's from a harsh critic
Maybe you could blend the Shaper into the background a little more, especially on the Dreadnought.
