Wow that's pretty cool.

*sigh* I have to point out that despite what you see in games, lasrifles win wars. Just because lasrifles suck at killing superhuman killing machines in power armor does not mean that they are bad weapons. You are shooting them at the wrong targets. The most common enemy the Imperium faces is lightly armored humans armed with lasguns or autoguns, NOT SPACE MARINES.

Those are neat, a bit washed out but still cool. I would love to see some WW2 pics like this.

Thats really weird to look at, you kinda have this impression that its all dark and gloomy for that whole war but you forget it wasn't. Very cool to see.

Hmm those look very interesting. Question is, are those real, or are they fake? (people with costumes and such).

I've seen one of them in a history book, the one of the French soldier in the trench line. Not sure about the others, either way...very interesting

I've seen some of those pictures before on a documenatry by the BBC.
Somehow they make the whole thing seem more real, as stupid as that may sound.

i dont think that sounds stupid at all, it does give a more... realistic feel? Always feels different in color.

Wow, it's so nice, I could have sworn they were pictures of dioramas! These pics make my history book look stupid now. Thanks for the pics!
