Floating weapon pods would be great about here... (Weapons Platforms)

Kill it...WITH FIRE
Where are the flamers? And the molotovs? And the flamers with molotovs' launchers?

Bah, that happens when you discard the imperium's "primitive" tech.

3rd panel
It looks great. Excellent composition. A chaotic battle condensed into a few impressions.

(Just a tiny flaw: The lining used to draw the Hormagaunt at the bottom of the panel is too thick. That switches the style back from realistic to comic.)

EDIT: And the arm of the guy in the 4th panel is way too short.

Immitation.... the highest form of flattery.

"You elders like to use ranged combat but have terrible armor? Cool, we got an adaption for that!".

IMHO the Tyarnids of Warhmmer 40k are the scariest foe imaginable (on level of the Borg from Star Trek):
Because they combine the lack of value for life of a swarm.
With a adaptability that makes humans look creatively sterile in comparision.
And the mind of a great tactician with galactic ambitions.

That's a good use of the harpoons!

I agree with what others are saying: The battle is fantastically represented ^^

Well, thank you, everybody.

Personally, I always hated the nids.

But that's because I always hated the concept of biological (organic) superiority over manufactured. In RL, you'll never find anything even remotely like that. Metals and focused technology outperforms organic matter in many areas, most notably durability and stress tolerance.

Bone swords vs. power swords?
guns vs. acidic spit?
Armor vs. carpace?

No contest. Ever.

Thats why they have the numbers.

Biology is just manufacturing on a nano scale, with some inherent self repair.

Our bones are not harder, because at our gravity we don't need them to be harder. They are not overengineered as the stuff we can manufacture.

But a species that mastered biotechnology could overengineer thier bodies.
Even the smalest nyd is highly overengienered compared to a Eldar or human. After all there is no need for any reproductive organs. "Can't reproduce" is a serious flaw for any lifeforms design, but can work if it is part of a swarm.
