"Hey, see anything?" Tur whispers to his comrade; the stillness of the night meant that even a wisp of sound seemed louder than a Basilisk firing.

"Eeyup." Reth says casually while peering through his binoculars across the long bombed out field full of craters and mangled green bodies. "Looks like some Astartes are coming this way. I guess Mittvoch finally got through to the Governor-Militant." Reth hands the glasses to Tur who instantly snaps them up to his own eyes and looks in the direction Reth was.

"Those aren't ours." The statement is flat; without conviction or fear or worry. Just emotionless. Reth instantly casts a glance at his comrade and grabs the binoculars.

The Astartes are large; two or three full heads taller than even Goethers and seemingly as wide as a man is tall. Their armor is a grayish black that seems to absorb the early evening twilight. The crest etched onto their shoulder pads mean they're of the Dark Angels chapter; a sword piercing a wing. Reth spends a full minute looking at the helmets the Astartes have: The eye slits seem to radiate a menace that Reth can't understand.

The movements of the marines are the most strange. They're jerky, as if they were puppets and pulled by strings. The legs rise up quickly and come down even faster; not walking, but stomping like a mad child. The weapons in their hands swing around like a drunken man aiming at anything that moves and occasionally firing. The heads bolt around constantly scanning the horizon.

"They're gorgeous if a touch terrifying." Tur mumbles before grabbing his lasgun.

The lead marine's head snaps around to gaze in Reth's direction before raising his weapon and firing.

really surprising, as it does for effect, I guess you do the whole drawing black and white and then color them

Wow looks like you've gotten quite the hit here man with this latest masterpiece, for the glory of the Emperor you've really outdone yourself sir. o0o

Considering your love of Space Marine and 40K business already was waiting to see what you'd throw at us and damn lad really stress again how much level of heart and devotion you must have poured into this.

Literally could have seen this from a cover from the one of the damn books how you show off their presence all power, faceless in a way and coming out from the darker and twisted mist, lovely job there.

From even the way their purple eyes from their helmets just barely light the image, draws you well into the way cold and heartless look of each of them, even more than the usual Space Marine armor would!

Speaking of armour, think you need to pat yourself on the back there lad. From the way looking in so close like before can see the many wires, the lettering to even the symbols and battle damage/bullet holes that make its battered look, outstanding!

Like best the one in the middle, like the leader of the group and all eyes draws to him and his gaze. Even seeing the way you take wind of the skulls and their bare white nature to show off, once again they do deem the name Fallen Angels.

Just the same love looking at your other work from the articulation in the near mechanical joints of the hands/fingers, to the tubes and even the glaring impression and terrifying feel of the skull emblem on their chest, its all there. o0o

Last quick note like that added touch of the other two firing away and event he sky itself seeming like the heavens are falling and so much dreary/grey nature to their presence, goodness ChrisZuron you really dropped this crab's jaw here. *standing ovation*

Thank you very much! I'm glad to see someone zoomed in enough to see all the numbers and lettering on the armor. I did put a lot of work into this and strangely I'm actually happy with the way it came out... I usually end up hating my own work but this time I feel like it came out even better than I had originally planned.

Oh please lad, your taking the time to add such incredibly fine points of detail, oh Emperor, what's the hardship in hitting the zoom button? ^O^

Think that's a good thing not just for your artwork but you as an artist learning to love the work that you do. Had times where had a pic was so proud of that it didn't get any attention and ended up hating it even though there was really nothing wrong.

Learning to praise your artwork and even crediting yourself is nothing wrong, only if you sit there like some deviant I know and turn it to an ego trip, then you got some problems going, lol.

Rest assure think you deserve the applause and cheers for this brilliant and godly pic Chris, pretty amazing how somethings can work out far better then you expect eh?

Wow thank you!

hmmm.... an imperial star destroyer... that would be a huge project considering how massive and complex those beasts are. I'm really busy on a lot of stuff at the moment and I've made too many promises as it is... but I am a huge fan of starwars so I'll try to tackle that at some point. Just don't expect it to be next week. :)
