    RUSTED - A warhammer 40k comic...

    Salutations to all...
    My name is Aerion the Faithful (well, it's not actually my REAL name, but you get the idea), and have been lurking for a while here on Warseer. I was a member of the -now defunct- Bolter&Chainsword forum, and was introduced to Warseer by my_name_is_tudor. So, i came, saw, and now i'm posting to have your opinions on this. What you are about to see is a comic made by myself and my associate FreakForge, based upon his award-winning chapter the 'Iron Souls'. It was originally intended to be a serial, but since we didn't have anywhere to post it, we delayed it for a while. I hope that it finds a place here on Warseer, and, who knows? If people are interested in it, maybe we'll continue with it.
    Now, a note on my style: since i first began posting on the B&C, my style drew the line between those who loved it and saw real potential and originality in it, and those that felt it had nothing to do with W40K. What i believe is that my style gives a fresh look to the characters that we all love and like, and despite it not being the 'official' GW aproach, you'll see that somehow it fits the 40K theme. So, please, be kind and prepare yourselves for something new.
    Of course, being a 'noob' here, i might be breaking size restrictions or something, so the Moderators are free to call my attention.
    Comments and critiscism is always welome and encouraged: the only way to improve is by listening to advice.

    So, here you have it, and i hope you enjoy it:

    Lucky me!, clicking the S&A section after a long time and finding this.

    Aerion, you seem to be an experienced comic drawer. The action inside the panels is well defined, plus you have an interesting style and the story is very 40k universe style.
    I don't see why your approach would be considered "wrong" (as far as the drawing style is concerned). If the GW has its own stye that doesn't mean that every fan art should look the same.

    Anyway, do keep drawing, I'm very interested in how this turns out.

    I'm guessing that's a deliberate choice to put a more human face on the narrator. If it is, it works.

    I can honestly say that this comic alone has made me interested in 40K again. Not the game, you understand, I'll never give a crap about that again - but the backstory.

    There's a slight inconsistence in the story, now that I think about it more. Namely, I don't think piloting a Sentinel and shooting the Marine in the chest would make the youngster "promising" in the eyes of that Marine. The lad would have to do something more... impressive, IMO.

    Afterthought: I didn't know whether to post this or not, 'cause fluffwise it just might be enough, depending on the circumstances you had in mind. But I did it anyway, in hope you'll explain the situation further.

    Re: RUSTED - A warhammer 40k comic...

    First off, let me say... WOW!... And second: THANK YOU! I'm actually shocked at the great response this comic has had, and i thank you all who have had so many kind words towards my art, and the story. I'm really excited , and of course, this will bring me back to the drawing board on the W40K subject.
    And to answer some questions: Velkyn Kill - The logo might seem a little blurryish due to the scanning of the original. Sometimes scanners are the death of an image. But i'll try to pay more attention to it.
    Lord-Warlock - 'Empire', instead of 'Imperium' is deliberate as Bubble Ghost so keenly deduced. FreakForge and i are trying to bring not only a more 'human' side of the story, but also to shown that being a citizen of the Imperium isn't that great. Most of the time you get killed for it, or because of it. After all, humanity is in constant war. And yes, i'm a fan of Frank Miller, and i believe that this sort of colour scheme gives much more mood to the story, and makes it more gothic (wich is what the 40K universe is all about).
    And, before i go, i want to credit my partner FreakForge for writing this fabulous story, that will now have to go on, or we will be assasinated . I'll tell him to come by and drop a few words.

    Thanks again, and keep those comments coming.

    I was just posting when you wrote this Yerpo, so i'll answer you: the fact is that the 'Iron Souls' are a succesor chapter of the Iron hands, but have some particular beliefs about what happened to their Primarch Ferrus Manus. This has sort of set them apart from the many other Space Marine chapters, that see them as religious fanatics (yes, even when SM are already fanatic, so you go figure). As followers of Ferrus, they price strength above all things, and the fact that a youngster showed that he could go as far as dying to kill one of them, is very promising. But 'promising' is not the end of the story. Our character went through a lot to prove he was worth REALLY something. And hopefully you'll see it on the following issues... Thanks for your interest. And if you have any more questions, shoot (but not to kill )...

    Until soon
