THE STORY
++Today, I will teach your kind the meaning of wrath. I will kill

a thousand of your filth-breed before your blood

dries on my gauntlets.++

++Gabriel Seth, Chapter Master of The Flesh Tearers++


Other bucketlist items I had to do for my inner 40K fan, hope im not pissing any hardcore fans off:
-"Oh my god... its full of stars... *kssshh* ...nope they're just tracers-"
-"This is Rhino 2-9 to Titan! Please advise on subsequent plasma trajectory...previous strike danger close-"
-Trying to stay faithful to the concept of Bolter rounds on impact.
-A friend kept saying how much he loved 'Beakie' helms.
-Re-purposed harness for Assault marine into webbing for extra ammunition/gear carrying capacity
-I loved gargants, and so I had to throw one in as tribute to how Epic 40k captured my imagination as a window-gazing kid.
-Crowd surfing marines, because when you're armoured like a tank, fighting eye to eye is so last millenium...


Big shout out to Karen Miksza at Black Library for being my producer/art director on this!

There's simply so much going on in this picture in so much detail that it makes it hard to really say it's anything less than a masterpiece.

This is absolutely epic. I've never gotten round to actually playing Epic 40k but the sheer magnitude of the game always drew my attention. You have rekindled that spark. Thanks, this is amazing! Watched, favoured, blown away.

Woah! awesome! Brings back memories from the days I used to play Epic. Love the "gritty foot soldier" -point of view in great battles. Keep it up!

Ya'know, out there is a funny story about the loyalist and the heretic Astartes Chapters, their names, and the confusion in a multi-chapter skirmish/battle.
