THE EMPEROR'S FINEST by kingmong THE EMPEROR'S FINEST by kingmong
This is my most ambitious piece yet and I was really driven to make this piece happen.

This has been a long way coming, I have finally done a competition piece for Games Day and made up my mind to fly over to England and submit this.

With the Emperor's grace, I have been rewarded for this effort. I won the competition.

I must say that was one of the proudest moments of my life, being able to share my works and crafts with the artists that has inspired my all these years. Meeting your heroes and seeing them appreciating your efforts meant alot to me. It was a very rewarding and fruitful trip indeed.

Do hope you enjoy this piece as much as I had while working on it. I would like to thank all the folks that has given me great support to see this through, you lend me strength to continue striving.

Done in Photoshop.


THE EMPEROR PROTECTS.

THQ look more into Blood Ravens, but actually the best chapter of the emperor space marines are the Urtalmarine. (and I like the colour of blue) =D

If you can do this with the Imperial Fists you could do something purely unique for Black Templars. Or if you are tired of SM I'll bet a Striking Scorpians or Black Reapers scene would be amazing. Like having a squad of Striking Scorpians moving out of the water without a ripple, off to hunt down the feeble minds of their enemies.

Rogal Dorn himself taught us, there is no place that an Imperial Fist cannot fortify and defend against all enemies, including the galaxy itself!

Neutral?

From imperial armies Imperial Fists and Blood Ravens (to bad Deathwatch isn't a chapter) while from chaos armies Khorne Berserkers and Thousand Sons.

But I like eldars the most.

I have a real strong affiliate toward scimitars and swords and of course swordplay and eldars (banshees&scorpions) are masters of these... And I just love their aesthetic armours!
