The Colour Of Thunder by ukitakumuki The Colour Of Thunder by ukitakumuki
a update on my first posted rough, [link]

Freshly deployed Ultramarines. The company banner got uh.. stuck in the thunderhawk's access ramp >_>

I hope you all enjoy it :) Warhammer 40k is one of those things that grabbed me as a kid, and never let go! Too bad my wallet is too shallow to fully enjoy this brilliantly creative hobby T_T

PS: more GW stuff to come! :D

As wonderful a job as you did with the Space Marines in the foreground, I think my favorite aspect of the painting is that missile explosion in the upper-right, mainly because it's rendered in such a detailed manner; the way the missile's trail is clearly visible, adding a sort of story to where the blast originated from, and conversely, the way the building is in the midst of crumbling and being split apart, suggesting what's about to happen.

Thanks so much! You know what? That also happens to be my favourite aspect of the image as well. Painting physical effects has always been a favourite of mine for numerous reasons; and I often lose myself in those wonderful areas in the image, trying to capture a sense of story, as you rightly put, in that frozen moment. Funny how we find story in things normally taken for granted :)

Wow. Although the marine in the center to the right is quite uncharacteristically gracious for a space marine. His glancing right hand reminds me of the Eldar.

my only complaint would be that the bolters (guns) look a little bit wimpy, but meh the picture is amazing.

thanks, well to be honest, i don't and will never 'get' what it is with the BFG culture that doom generation inspired. I dont mind 'a specialist bfg' such as an anti-matter weapon to take out squiggoths (lol) but if every armed force member is toting something that looks heavier then themselves.... :D

And yes, technically they are kinda smaller than the bolters u have in the 40k universe.. but it also makes the marines look bigger ;)
