 Raven Guard Auxiliaries? Cool. I guess that explains such high tech gear for a Imperial Guardsman. Since their homeworld of Deliverance is a advanced forge world.

us far as I know Auxiliary squads (like solar auxilia or legions army auxilia) was an elite forces, unlike regular 40k guardsmen

Well, actually not quite the case. The Imperialis Auxilia (or just Imperial Army) was the direct predecessor to both "current" Imperial Guard and Imperial Navy. Their regular ground infantry were pretty much like M41-era Imperial Guard (Astra Militarum in high gothic) infantry - with rank-and-file troops, NCOs and lower officers using the same lasguns and flak armour as standard. The difference was in that Imperialis Auxilia have unified command chain for both ground troops and space vessels. Imperial Army was organized into Battle Groups, each under a general or an admiral, that had direct command over both captains of space vessels and commanding officers of ground troops' regiments. 
There was actually an elite division, called the Solar Auxilia. Its troops donned void-sealed carapace armour and wielded Kalibrax-pattern lasrifles, with superior range and power over STC-standard lasgun (that was known as "Mars-Tellurian MKII lascarbine" in M31 and as "M-G Short pattern lasgun" in M41).
However, the trooper on your magnificent drawing could as well be not a regular Imperialis Auxilia grunt, but rather a serf (human servant) of the Raven guard astartes legions. And by virtue of being auxiliary trooper for the Astartes legion he could have access to advanced weaponry like the hellgun in his hands.

That is the face of a man who wishes he was dead. Should have joined the Death Korps.

Well... I asked if these guys are Therion Cohorts because they are the only Imperial Army Regiment that fought alongside Raven Guard Legion.

And this guy here has Raven Guard symbols, so he must be from 
Therion Cohorts. Correct?

Found them in less than 2 minutes on 40k wiki.

But granted, they don't have any official art yet.

Очень брутально, реалистично и аутентично. Такая смесь Имперской готичности и современного внешнего вида - редкая штука. К тому же артов про Имперскую Армию до Ереси почти нет. Прекрасная работа! Clap

I like the design though the aesthetic doesn't necessarily fit with the future/medieval vibe of 30k and 40k. Still awesome job though. Wish 40k had more of an aesthetic like this.

What medieval aesthetic are you talking about?
Reply
:iconcromwell300:
Cromwell300 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
The entire imperial culture is very medieval in how it is portrayed. Space marine armor is very similar to knight's armor, and if you look at the imperial army units on Forge World they look very dated or renaissance ish

Like I said I like it. 40k's medieval aesthetic does got a little over the top some times, and its nice to see you adding a dash of realism with this depiction

Интересный взгляд на "реалистичный" образ ИГ. 
(Хотя к бэку и эстетике пре-хереси отношения не имеет совершенно отношения, но не слушайте гундёж фаната-задрота))

На самом деле очень интересно бьіло бьі узнать, потому что я искал о полках сопровождения и солдатах Имперской армии времен Ереси но нечего не нашел (кроме разве что Solar Auxilia, но это элита а идея бьіла изобразить рядового воина)
Так что если можете помочь знаниями буду благодарен Thank you! Thank you!

Пожалуй что да, каких-то официальных материалов по Imperialis Auxilia и Imperialis Militia практически нет. Скорее я к тому, что сеттинги 40к и 30к практически не допускают "технологичность" или "современность". Это в значительной степени ретро-футуризм на смешении с "фентези-в-космосе".
Даже "технологичный спецназ", Tempestus Scions, носят вполне фентезийные кирасы, совмещённые с хайт-еком типа визоров с ЛЦУ или диспенсеров гранат.

Впрочем, всё это моё мнение, а вам лучше продолжать радовать обалденнейшими артами, будь они ближе к истине или дальше :)
