Today's installment of fan-made awesome might be a fitting one for Veterans' Day, since it involves some familiar characters made re-imagined as battlefield heroes of another kind. I was lucky enough to find a smorgasbord of amazing fanart featuring some familiar characters (The Avengers, of course) remixed in another favorite style (the also-beloved art of Guild Wars). This treasure trove of awesome comes to us from Malaysian artist Daniel Kamarudin.

His art was recently featured on DeviantART, and I'm bringing you that collection here. dA was so impressed it made them wax a little poetic, and they included a classic poem along with the feature:

It seems only fitting that we recite the Charge Of The Light Brigade when imagining these otherworldly and battle ready warriors from alternate realms transformed by Daniel’s imagination as they prepare for war. “The Charge of the Light Brigade” a 1854 poem about the Battle of Balaclava (Crimean War) by then Poet Laureate Alfred Lord Tennyson.

I won't type up the entire poem here, but it's a good and appropriate one - and here's the first stanza to set the mood and get you feeling the epic battlefield energy:

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
“Forward, the Light Brigade!
“Charge for the guns!” he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Now I'll let you enjoy the rest of the awesome. As always, if you're on DeviantART (or tumblr, Kamarudin has an official blog full of more amazing art), show the artist some love! If you like their art, you gotta let them know! That way, they're more likely to keep giving us cool things to take in with our eyeballs. Thanks so much, Daniel Kamarudin!
