Let their deeds be made known by Blazbaros Let their deeds be made known by Blazbaros
For the :iconeye-of-terror:'s Unsung Heroes and Rebels contest [link]

Apothecary Fabio Cambrian is carrying a heroic guardsman who sacrificed his life for Forge World Hephaestus, interring him into a memorial tomb or hall of glory. Cambrian did not know the guardsman name, rank or anything else about him, but he fought along side him, vigorously for the Emperor and against the onslaught of the Necrons. For that, at least, Cambrian believes he should be remembered.

Who are we to declare the brave's sacrifices are meager?

Who are we to belittle those who give all they have, when even they are but so small?

You know, this picture and the story behind it, for me at least, brings to mind the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" in Ottawa: [link]

In HIS name, may their deeds be remembered. For HIS glory, let their example be followed. In HIS path, may we fight forever!

Very rarely is a Guardsmen remembered. There are so many different types and various styles that there is no way to keep track of them all.

If you read Fifteen Hours by Mitchel Scanlon, you will see the life of an average Guardsmen and how little anyone cares for them.

Though there are Space Marine Chapters out there that go out of their way to help humanity. Take the Salamanders for example, they have sacrificed whole Companies of Marines to hold the line while the Imperial Guard regroups.

So with all of that, I salute you sir for making a picture that captures what the Space Marines were really made for, safe guarding humanity and making sure the average soldier is remembered.
