Default Help me create characters!

Essentially, what I am asking here is for heretics to assist me in creating a cast of 40k based characters for a comic strip I`m working on. I had begun brainstorming ideas myself, then realized it would be a lot easier if I had some input from the creative minds of the other Heretics. I figured 40k Fluff would be the best place to ask.

General Outline:

Basically, the comic is intended to be a pisstake on 40k. The primary setting is a tavern on the outer fringes of the galaxy where patrons can go to unwind and get away from the fighting. All politics are left outside, meaning fights seldom occur within.

The Imperium is unaware of this place, so there will be No Imperial Characters!


What I need from you is basically a general outline or idea for a character. The funnier the better.

Here are some ideas I was toying with:

A dark eldar haemonculus. I was tipping either this guy or an ork painboy to be the barkeep. Maybe both.
A termagant struggling with an eating disorder.
A necron flayed one. Figured the running gag would be that he can`t pick up a glass.
A tau stealthsuit stuck in stealth mode. Joins conversations unexpectedly and scares other patrons unintentionally.
An eldar farseer as the doorman. Two wraithguard as the bouncers.


Anyone got any suggestions or ideas? I`m taking suggestions for new characters, names, plot devices and all. Once we have a decent list of twenty or so characters, I`ll open a poll and we`ll decide on ten or so.

You could have a suicidal Plague Marine that cant die

I myself am planning on making funny comics (mostly involving the Chaos Gods) but I am wondering how to start. Should I draw it first and then scan it on a computer? How are you planning on doing it?

The only comic I have doodled is the two missing primarchs reading the newspaper that says IMPERIUM FUCKED

then the one looks to the other and says, "It's a good thing we quit."

Maybe we could even work on some stuff together :p

A lost baby Tyranid that eats random items around the place, and guests too.
An shady ork Gretchin that can get anything you want. (Four Candles anyone)
An Ork wierdboy with multiple personality disorder.
A dark eldar who wants to be good and crys alot.

I may have a few more but wanted to get in quick.

I was gonna basically sketch and ink the originals and spruce them up with photoshop. It doesn`t need a lot of work because chances are I won`t take the time to colour them. The hard part atm is just character design.

And I like your primarch line.

You ninja`d my above post, so I`ll double.

I really like the shady gretchin idea, will definitely include that.

The rest are pretty funny as well, especially the DE!

well thanks lol
Yeah I was originally planning on drawing them and then scanning it but I've never done it before. Once on the computer I assume you can color fill it in and add like you said photoshop stuff.

I just wish I was a beter artist

A khrone berserker who acts nice and one small mention about his anger issues, he blows up and trashes the place.

A retired Eldar Autuarch who is sarcastics and likes to comment on every little thing even when he's not part of the conversation.

Chaos Sorcerer who is a fortune teller. :D

A Philosophical weird boy. Like confucious and tends to talk in riddles.

hmm... Thats what i got so far. xD

Using inks lessens the work needed because you have solid lines to work with. I only intended to use Photoshop to clean these up, but once I have some other stuff done up I`ll post them on Heresy and dA.

Abbadon himself shows up without his arms, usually depressed because he can't get squat done for Chaos.

A Necron who's always trying to hit on a Demonette, but because his C'Tan master hates Chaos, he usually winds up literally hitting her and then proceeds to get all upset later. Communicates entirely through pantomimes and sign language.

A Squat geezer who tells a lot of crazy made-up stories about things like "Zoats" and "Malal" and other silly things that never have and could never possibly exist.
