Commander Shadowsun by DiegoGisbertLlorens Commander Shadowsun by DiegoGisbertLlorens
I think it's safe to post this now that the Tau vs Raven Guard releases are out. It causes me emotional pain to depict Tau beating up Astartes.

I love the tau because of the fact that they have great tech and are the closest to noblebright 40k will ever get.
I must ask, though, why is shadowsun there? She's from the t'au sept, but all the other tau here are vi'orla!

Well, If they were perfect, it wouldn't be 40k.
Plus, it's not like the ethereals don't believe in what they teach.

To many 40k art depict space marines kicking ass, it's good to see the ass kicker getting the ass kicking.

Yes, I agree. It's kind of bidimensional when they are always protrayed as epic and invincible killing machines.

I do like how you included bodies from both sides. It makes the battle feel two-sided.

Ooosh. Why are The Raven Guard fighting an open-grounded battle? That has all the strategic value of Tau charging Orks.

Because apparently they were outmatched by the so-called greatest military mind of the Tau Empire.

The brief actually stated that, even though the Tau were to be winning, it had to be somehow unclear.
