Rockin' image. Kasrkin are kick-ass and this drawing makes them more than justice. Pro job.

wow cool, the kasrkin are one of the most coolest looking units in the game especially compare to marines.

whats more their wargear is kick ass in a way I mean who else can be equipped with a primary (hellgun or spec wpn) pistol and cc weapon ate the same time in all your squad? just 5 of them can dish out 10 hits, not bad for a sacrificial unit

I'm pretty sure Kaskrin is pronounced with a Eastern European accent, "Kahss-kreen".

Either way this is damn sexy.

*looks up the Kasrkin spelling*

Conflicting sources on the spelling. Now I'm confused >_>

very nice. excellent drawing and very true to the models, like that you've exchanged the common hellgun with a shotgun ^^d

Kasrkin are the storm troops of the Cadian regiments. Cadia being a fortress world, that makes them pretty mean.
so they are consittered some of the most elite stormtroops the IG has to offer

great job man....this is a great example of what IG Stormtroopers should look like.


...my only gripe is with the armmament. but this is a good thing. for you see, if they were actually given extra niftyness in the Tabletop game, they would be a lot better.

Oh man. This picture...its just...awesome. The colouring, the way its drawn, it just fits! And I love how you've drawn the guns and his equipment. I'm a fan of Warhammer, and an even bigger fan of Imperial Guard (Guardsmen > Marines :D) so for me this is just great. I came, I saw, I favoured!

By the way, I think it is pronounced "Ka-Sir-Kin." As in Cadian cities are called Kasr, and they are brothers in arms, hence "kin" as a result, "Kasrkin."
