cronevald is a actual GW artist he gave us permission to use this one piece as it's not one he did for them.
It's a Savlar Chem Dog

Nice image - very clean (a little too clean for a chem dog!). Almost renegade if not for the imperial eagle!
@Rhuntar: The Savlar Chem Dogs are an imperial guard regiment mentioned in the previous IG codex for having very poor discipline, looting the battlefield and generally acting more like a penal legion (if I remember correctly).
From the Warhammer40k Wiki...
The Savlar Chem-Dogs are Penal Legion regiments that serve within the Imperial Guard. They draw their recruits from the prisons on the inhospitable penal world of Savlar by the promise that they will be allowed to keep anything they take from the battlefield, as well as the chance to get away from Savlar's highly toxic environment. Though these Guard regiments are primarily composed of immoral, desperate cut-throats, they have been forged into an effective fighting force, and are some of the most hard-bitten, tenacious and outright dirty fighters in the Imperium of Man.
"You can keep that, mate! Won't fetch me more than a few credits on the market anyway. All this death-and-glory crap isn't really my business. I'm in it for the loot."
— Sergeant Joto of the XXII Savlar upon receiving a medal for bravery after the bloodbath at Trenia

I thought the acolytes of Khorne were supposed to be warriors, not a bunch of pansies.
— Commissar Ciaphas Cain, to a Khorne Berserker, during the Chaos attack on Adumbria

@Laney I guess actually looking things up is one way to go....

That's a great little snippet from the wiki. A toxic world makes the rebreather/respirator in the picture make sense. Sounds like an intriguing modeling opportunity....
