A wise man said, "We are the tales we tell." From what do you get your inspiration? What elements of things you've absorbed make up your character(s)?

This is a thread for 'unsanctioned' works related to our favorite universe, but not written by anyone currently employed by any of Games Workshop's iterations.

Here is a Warhammer 40k crossover with Neon Genesis Evangelion. The author tried to reboot it and apparently disappeared, but his original work is still crazy awesome.

Aaaand I just found this lovely nugget.

[REDACTED] CONSPIRACY WAS POSTED?

SHIT

also I thought Shinji&Warhammer was p nice, though it gets a bit pretentious with the writing and jokes near the end.

[Raises hand] I feel impossibly wanky posting my own work in this topic, but here's a long-running IG story with occasional crayon illustrations:
https://mordian183.wordpress.com

Not really updated since mid-2015, but after chatting about it last night, I'm throwing the full thing back up.

I haven't really read a lot of 3rd party fiction, so I shall stare fixedly at this topic. :D

Rodbob, in a nod to you and your praetorians, I recommend To Do And Die by Patrick Mercer. It's a great account of the Crimean War and would probably add some flavor to draw from as an additional source.

I would also recommend Band Of Brothers (HBO adaption and the novel by Stephen Ambrose).

I really liked a lot of that Krieg stuff, especially the first few and the one that's like 'sometimes you feel very alone'. I know that they don't look exactly the same, but I can't help but think of the spitalars from Degenisis.

They actually look pretty close to a krieg trooper, imo. o3o (Also apparently tts now have trailers, because shush.)

Additionally these are the pictures that inspired Makarovs homeworld. Less impressive than the video there, but still something that inspired me.

I am not, sorry. I'm from the US. I do think that Spain is super pretty from what I've seen, but I didn't know that those pictures were of Spain. I just found them on tumblr.

I'm of Filipino-Spanish-Irish descent, but the inspiration for my army, if it isn't readily apparent, is Greco-Macedonian. I'd been greatly inspired by the accounts of the wars of Persia and Greece, and the reign of Alexander the Great. Generally, I watch the movies 300, its sequel, and Alexander when I sit down to paint.

Fun fact: Aislyn won't get promoted to the Pezhetairoi and the Phalanx until he uses his sword in close combat.

A Krieger bunker. The Germans inside that bunker lived, if memory serves.

Military history, the Imperial Guard Codexes from 2nd Edition through to 4th (and to a lesser extent 5th and 6th), various Forgeworld tomes, the Gaunts' Ghosts, Ciaphas Cain, and various Imperial Guard books (particularly 15 Hours). I also get inspiration from other players - the All Guardsman Party RP is hilarious, for example, but a well built army can be just as inspiring. It's also worth reading stuff like The Good Soldier Svjek, and All Quiet on the Western Front, or Her Privates We, too.
