Training to be Spiders by ukitakumuki Training to be Spiders by ukitakumuki
EDIT: Its been such a long time!! Updated the pic with their usual standard operational loadout :D Do hope you Eldar fans may like it better! some tiny edits such as the eyes have also been made.

PS CS2

A sketch of Eldar Warp Spiders [(c)Games Workshop and Warhammer 40,000] during their training phase, my last piece before i go into the army tomorrow :(

For this particular training run, they are only armed with arm blades (to use as picks if they really fall), and have to do their teleporting jaunts in quick succession to avoid falling to their deaths. Truly elite :D

You really get a sense of momentum with this piece. I like the way that you depict them warping in, much cooler than the way DoW II's trailer shows them. It looked too much like they were just cloaking on and off to evade shots instead of jumping through the warp like this shows!

I've got to say, I'm not even a big fan of the Eldar but this is my favourite piece of 40k fanart in existence. Good job.

Exarch- 'Now remember, be aware of your surroundings at all times, less you bring ruination upon yourself. Also never-"

Warp Spider- 'Canon Ball!'

Exarch- 'I hate you.'

xP. Epic piece, but I have to throw the commentary in there.

Awesome; Star Wars and 40k. This one's a beaut, of course. Some of my favorite units right here. Have you ever considered drawing the Ubese from the SW universe?
Reply
:iconukitakumuki:
ukitakumuki Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
No, but there is the off chance that one day I might :) Is that the same disguise Leia wore to get into Jabba's cantina? Or did I get my shit wrong. Not much of a SW fan other than for Boba and the Empire :)

Side note: I really dig Tusken raiders! With the long rifles and all.

:iconlevyathyn:
Levyathyn Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2011
Yeah, Tuskens are awesome. And Leia's disguise was that of an Ubese bounty hunter, but there's a lot more to them in the Expanded Univere stuff. Anyway, good work and all that.

Thank you! I like him the most as well. I always find the background characters a bigger pleasure to conceive and execute. Come to think of it I like how it looks like he probably miscalculated a jump point and in a few moments will not live to regret it.

I was actually talking about drawing :P

Your drawing of these guys is simply astounashing!

As for the WH40K universe... I didnt payed it much attention until I played the dawn of war games. Those sparked my attention for the game, but I actually didnt get into the miniature thing. Playing on the PC is much more fun in my opinion :P

Not that I've played a single tabletop game with the miniatures myself - but I think I'd have to agree with you - playing the electronic version(s) so far seem much more appealing to me. :)

I've played Space Hulk, Chaos Gate, DOW... all brilliant.

Ahh... but if they are in their training phase...why does the dood in front look like an exarch?

And why do they have spinners when you said...arm blades only...?
