Spike the Imperial Guard by johnjoseco Spike the Imperial Guard by johnjoseco
Out of all the sketches I did at Equestria L.A., this was my favorite. Spike as a Imperial Guard from Warhammer 40K.

So cute, though it'd really suck for him to go expendible like all the other human guards.

Good. Keep that Xenon Spike ABSOLUTELY out of the army. Pull him out as soon as feasible.

That sort of dragon potential is way too useful to risk in such an expendible way as a Guardsman (Guardsdragon?).

He's an abhuman and therefore even more expendable than regular line Guardsmen.
Oh he gonna die.

Or he survives long enough (not unlikely considering his sheer luck) to either become an officer of his regiment, or some Inquisitor thinks he makes a good fire-breathing assistant (he can instantly send letters in a non-warp related way, which Inquisitor could resust that?). He's also a small target, which adds to his chance of survival.
Give him a flamer or a melta, and he's ready to kill xenos! Just make sure he gets appreciation once in a while.

Question
May I crop this and submit it to use as a banner for a browser based game?
The game is a pony style political nation building game, most of it is text based. Most of the people are sperglords from /mlp/ and /anon/, but it's genuinely a very fun game
Heck, I don't even watch My Little Pony and I still play it!
It's called clop.us

The Banner will look like this

It is a term used for a certain type of futuristic soldier who uses heavy exo-skeletal armor and other future weapons introduced in War Hammer 40k and Star Craft.
