Refugees WIP by TD-Vice Refugees WIP by TD-Vice
These kids' parents were all in the PDF when the military and government of their planet declaired their world independent from the Imperium. They quickly got rid of the remaining Imperial cults and governing bodies and prepared for the immenent assault. The Planetary Defense, however, didn't stand a chance agains the Mordian Iron Guard that had been sent on the planet to decapitate and destroy the rebellion. In a war that engulfed most of the world's Hives, these children lost parents, homes and by a lucky chance had avoided the same fate - the loyalists intended to burn out the whole planet to bare earth, and it would happen, if the Pact, always attracted to war, hadn't joined the battle in support of the rebels.

Most were afraid to ask for food from the notorious Pact, but some battled their fear and, firstly showing off the symbols of alliance, went to the camps to beg or trade for food and clothes.

Nidhok, being a Valhallan, always had a soft spot for children as his culture valued and protected the youth, so he hadn't been needed to ask twice to share some of his ration with the kids. Blind, remembering his days of scavenging on Savlar and being unpleasantly reminded of it, still shared too.

This is mostly finished lines, coloring will be next.

Comments and crit welcom especially on child anatomy since I suck at it.

the third kid to the right looks light a midget physique, not a child's physique. Otherwise gret.

the center cultist has this look of being far away, and looks very tired, i would think one would be when making enemys with your own race...i think this shows lots of emotion the normal codex's describe chaos with i think this should be new canon.

Very touching sir very touching. Love the look on the tallest boy, the look of fear and desperation. I love their gear, looks just like what a refugee would wear. Is the third boy from the left blind? poor little thing. Very well done, a side of 40k even Chaos not seen a lot, they do need somewhere to recruit from right? this is where it starts. Such a brave girl (?) to pet the wirewolf's chin. So cute :) Really inspirational, Love the detail. All in all....a beautiful piece.

I was surprised seeing bloodpact-pictures like this. They didnt seem being friendly to imperial kids, when they started shooting at the children in the manufactory in a Sabbat-World novel. but anyway, its an amazing drawing.

sry for bad english.
