Calas Typhon

Typhus, also known as Typhus the Traveller, originally the Space Marine named Calas Typhon of the world of Barbarus, is the Herald of Nurgle, the Lord of the Death Guard's 1st Plague Company, and the host of the terrible plague known as the Destroyer Hive. He is a Champion of Chaos and the former First Captain of the Death Guard Traitor Legion. Typhus is also the most feared of all Chaos Lords to command one of the legendary Plague Fleets.

Calas Typhon hailed from the Death Guard's toxic homeworld of Barbarus. Typhon possessed the blood of the mutant psyker warlords that had ruled the planet before being defeated by Mortarion, the Death Guard's Primarch, who had been exiled to Barbarus through the Warp from Terra by the Dark Gods. As a child upon the toxic planet of Barbarus, Calas Typhon was troubled by nightly phenomena over which he believed he had no control. Objects would shudder and smash around him whenever he was frightened or angered, and plants would wither and die under his gaze. These phantom powers troubled him greatly, but he resolved to turn them to his advantage. By the time Typhon reached maturity, he had learned to master the psychic energies that resonated within him each night; a feat of will that impressed his elders mightily. With this act, Typhon became stronger in his resolve to succeed than any of his peers.

When the Emperor reclaimed His lost son Mortarion from the poisonous mists of Barbarus, and reunited him with the the superhuman warriors born from his gene-seed, Typhon was amongst those chosen to join their ranks. His clan's citadel had been visited by the Apothecaries of Mortarion’s new Space Marine Legion, and during their assessments, Typhon's inner strength had shone through.


This drawing has been made as a reward for the Daemon Prince patron on my Patreon. This tier contains a monthly drawing by patron's request.
I will mainly do portraits and chest-up as rewards unless it's a character I've been wanting to draw for a long time. Then I might go as far as I went on Typhus.
If you want, you can support me on Patreon to get a bunch of extra perks:

My favorite 40k character...:o (Eek) 

So heretical. I think no Astartes (not Primarch) except maybe Erebus has done darker things to doom his legion, like him. 

And finally, he has a face. Thank you very much. Hug
