Dark Heresy: Gregan Hephastus by BluntieDK Dark Heresy: Gregan Hephastus by BluntieDK
My current character in our Dark Heresy (Warhammer 40.000 rpg) campaign, an Imperial Psyker. His face is initially based somewhat off of a picture of the actor portraying J.F. Sebastian in the movie Blade Runner. Since I made the character, he's the look I've had in mind for Gregan.

Hello there.

Could it be possible for you to make a similarly-styled drawing of a fellow Astra Telepathica psyker? :)

Not much to say, just a great painting. Realistic, while still capturing that key 40k grimdark look.

This is the best painted psyker image I've laid eyes on yet. I absolutely love the complexion, the details, everything looks so beautifully executed. This is inspiring.

I also really like this because psykers are my favorite class to play in 40k. I'm currently playing a psyker in a dark heresy campaign. She has 28 insanity points, and 39 corruption. She has a mutation, summoned a demon once, and almost was possessed by one, which is what gave her so much corruption, and now is tainted and uses sorcery and will likely die within the next couple of games as her teamates are likely to discover she's a heretic shortly. But until then, her evil twisted ass is real fun to play. x]

Freakin' Psykers! (That's a frequent curse amongst the Acolytes in our party, as our Psyker tends to jam our guns at very inopportune times.)

That being said, AWESOME representation!

Oh come now, you gotta love psykers. Nothing to pick up the mood like a bit of walls weeping blood or slithering tentacles growing from the air. And that's not even mentioning the whole head-splody thing. :D

Our Psyker DID manage to make it rain blood when our cleric was interrogating a prisoner, which made the GM forgo even a basic Intimidate check. I do wish he would stop sticking Post-It notes (his focus, LOL) in our mouths, though, when we get injured. They taste terrible.

Funny, I saw Blade Runner again sunday evening, and when I saw your picture it immediately made me think of Blade Runner, however, it reminded me as much of Sebastian than of Roy.

Awesome work. The Emperor truly guides your hands. May He continue to be your inspiration.

Hope you enjoy DH, I know I had fun with my Psyker during playtesting - just don't roll Perils - and am enjoying my current game too, although without the psychic powers.

Perhaps when they are done you will be able to use the Emperor's Tarot cards as an in game assist.
