It is not your duty to leave this ship, and airlocks only encourage such foolish behaviour. All airlocks have been removed in this sector to discourage frivolous use of the Emperor's void suits.

The new void-doors are guaranteed airtight when closed. If a leak is detected, burn candles near the door and alert the nearest Techpriest.

Any citizen who opens a door will be shot. Do not suffocate before justice has been carried out. Any citizen who suffocates before being shot will be shot twice.

Lol I think i would have kicked him out.

T1868 (Guest), December 8th, 2008, 5:40 am

i would hve shot him and blamed it on the tech-priest

and thankyou for the little word bubble of encouragement.

Z-Axis, December 8th, 2008, 6:05 am

'Eyyy, thanks!

Battlefleet Gothic players might recognise the Mars class battlecruiser, albeit with cargo holds placed in front of most of the guns and fighter bays. This is because I knew I would be hunted down and killed if I postponed the comic any longer to construct an entirely different spaceship ;)

Why is the ship so similar to the Mars? ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

ELnicko (Guest), December 9th, 2008, 11:02 am

It makes sense that since they have landed nose down that they are walking on a wall instead of the floor, how they did not notice I will never know, but why is the sign about the airlocks sign still right side up? Or is it that all space craft are configured so that their floor is twords the bow?

Z-Axis, December 10th, 2008, 9:41 am

In my head, the artificial gravity in the ship is still working, so while on board the ship, the floor is still 'down'.

The Captain, though, has been pushed out of the artificial gravity, so now the plane'ts gravity is going to pull him down towards the floor - from the adjutant's point of view, he's going to start falling sideways.

That explanation might not be very clear, so here's an illustration of how floors and gravity are arranged:

Now then, from that picture, I realise I've probably done the shading wrong. Oops.

T1868 (Guest), December 11th, 2008, 3:32 pm

i could care less which way is up or down as long as he goes splat

Z-Axis, December 17th, 2008, 3:51 pm

So, the other Smackjeeves 40k comic, Commissar: Kill That Man, has just come back from a huge hiatus. Reading it would be... sensible, citizen.

A Concerned Citizen (Guest), December 19th, 2008, 7:26 am

I think people care more about the actual story and comic, than the quality of the art. Otherwise you're going to be spending a month on each comic, by which time people will stop checking their bookmarks.

Z-Axis, December 20th, 2008, 7:09 am

Advice taken, Concerned Citizen (Gordon Frohman?) - my plan for the next one won't require much messing about in Blender, anyway.

Next comic may appear some time this weekend.

Kais246 (Guest), January 6th, 2009, 6:15 pm

OMG LIES!!!!!11one!


I think Frohman is right, arts nice but actual work being submited is more important in my opinion.

Z-Axis, January 10th, 2009, 4:22 am

I quite agree, which makes the exams even more vexing.

Thankfully, they're over on Tuesday. Apologies to everyone who is still waiting ;)

Rutskarn (Guest), January 31st, 2009, 4:47 pm

13 Now, see, we just NOW this isn't gonna be the end of it.

t1868 (Guest), February 2nd, 2009, 5:58 am

ive been thinking sabout this comic. x-axis i swear to god if you make this current comic a scrubs flashback i will wHip you with a power whip, yes they have those.


Z-Axis, February 3rd, 2009, 2:07 pm

This weekend... blood may be seen. It may not.

Flashbacks definitely won't be. 13 comics... far too early to do a flashback, especially at the rate I post stuff.

(Unrelated note: I'm also going to recolour the doors in this strip, since the bright orange is, well, bright.)

Apart from that... yay, comments from Rutskarn! Thanks for going through and commenting all the strips :D

Rutskarn (Guest), February 9th, 2009, 9:41 pm

Seemed equitable.

t1868 (Guest), February 16th, 2009, 6:39 pm

blood....bloood...BLOOD FOR THE LAZY GOD!

Z-Axis, February 24th, 2009, 4:38 pm

This weekend, there will be BLOOD.

... there may also be a new En Guard.

T1868 (Guest), March 8th, 2009, 8:48 am

Ultimatium (Bringin back some good ol' T1868 motivation)

Z-Axis, March 8th, 2009, 12:00 pm

Movtivated! Don't press that button!

Agouri (Guest), March 18th, 2009, 8:15 am

Good work Nice job ripping off OOTS' style of drawing

And no ciaphas cain reference = no fun. You cant have fun in the 41st millenium without Ciaphas.

t1868 (Guest), March 19th, 2009, 6:46 am


weelllll im sorry it came to this but you need to hurry up.

Z-Axis, April 3rd, 2009, 5:05 pm

Hopefully not 'ripping off'? That sounds rather negative...

Ciaphas Cain, awesome as he is, will likely not show up in this comic.

Speaking of which, the holidays are here so I should be able to draw some En Guard, with a little luck...

Kais246 (Guest), April 23rd, 2009, 2:47 am

Erggh Yeah i must say your doing a good job at keeping up to date so far....

t1868 (Guest), May 4th, 2009, 3:44 pm

for god sakes man give us something!

Asbjørn (Guest), June 17th, 2009, 10:24 am

Your comic rocks. I do play warhammer and i think this is warhammer worth

Asbjørn (Guest), June 22nd, 2009, 12:55 am

could you maby make some more battles?

asbjørn (Guest), June 28th, 2009, 2:26 am

how often do you make a new page

asbjørn (Guest), July 3rd, 2009, 12:29 am

i think you should take a look at this soon

Z-Axis, July 5th, 2009, 5:40 am

Er, oops?

Asbjørn, the comic updates... well, rarely is perhaps the most accurate way to describe it. Sorry about that. (Also, thanks for the kind words).

t1868, I intend to do just that... but you've probably stopped reading this long ago, so whatever.

Kais246, I know, right?

T1868 (Guest), July 14th, 2009, 10:31 pm

I'm still kicking I'm still here I just need to see some updates or atleast progress. Don't make me do more motivation!

Asbjørn (Guest), July 18th, 2009, 1:27 am

Okay. And which country are you from since you can write ø

t1868 (Guest), July 18th, 2009, 11:00 am

copy and paste land?

Z-Axis, July 20th, 2009, 5:40 pm

Asbjørn, I'm in England. I can write ø by copying the character either from your post or from the character map in Windows (presumably most operating systems have an equivalent?)

Setting to work on the new comic... (and wow, I'm impressed at your resolve T1868 :D)

asbjørn (Guest), July 21st, 2009, 12:40 am


asbjørn (Guest), July 21st, 2009, 12:44 am

do you play warhammer

Z-Axis, July 22nd, 2009, 1:19 pm

Yeah, but rarely at the moment. I play Imperial Guard.

(Unless you mean Warhammer Fantasy, in which case no... 40k is expensive enough as it is)

T1868 (Guest), July 22nd, 2009, 11:41 pm

Glad to here progress. I ussaly check this every 2 or 3 days but now that progress is beeing made I will be checking in more frequently. Keep up the good work and thanks.

Z-Axis, July 28th, 2009, 1:31 pm

Sorry about the lack of comic; the power supply on my computer broke preventing anything comic-related from happening over the last few days. The update's still coming!

Asbjørn (Guest), July 30th, 2009, 2:07 pm

So.... imperial guard huh? they´ve got a new codex, is it good?

T1868 (Guest), August 24th, 2009, 11:07 am

Asbjørn (Guest), September 5th, 2009, 2:23 am

... more "En Guard" am I right?You havent made a new comic in about 2 years and 2 months........
In case you are reading this I just wanted to say that misleading people is bad.This comic had great potential but you let it down.I hope you are not hapy,because if you are the whole objective of this letter is ruined.Seyonaras non-amigos!
P.S.I dont really know if I wrote it 1/4 correctly so excuse me.

libarata (Guest), October 9th, 2011, 2:21 pm

hmm I have a feeling this project is a goner?
