I’m a big fan of this painting by Adrian Smith. To me it does an excellent job of capturing the sort of thuggish mutants that would be drawn to the banner of chaos. No wonder the Imperium purges them. I don’t fancy that poor Guardsman’s chances much in the next few minutes, and going by his rather hang-dog expression neither does he. Well that’s what he deserves for failing in his duty to the Emperor. Obviously, as a treacherous heretic myself, I’m rather fond of all of them, but on this occasion the one I’m particularly interested in is this good looking chap.I’ve been wanting to improve my greenstuff skills recently and spotting his ugly mug in the rear ranks of this image gave me just the inspiration I needed to add another chaos marine to the new squad.
Possibly not the kind of chap you’d invite round to meet your mum but I’m rather pleased with how he’s turned out. As ever your thoughts are welcome.
