Hey, jubjubjedi! If you're planning to draw a Emperor's Shadow Chaplain you can draw him like this guy: wallpaperstock.net/total-war--… Just so you get the idea.

Wish they'd gotten more attention. Would've been awesome to see a Librarian or Terminator design for them. Or even Imperial Knights! The closest I ever found were these:

In the Grim-dark future of the 41st Millennium, there's always room for more sci-fi samurai.

Thanks!  I've always thought that samurai themes make good pairings with Space Marines.

Thanks!  It's not my idea, but I'm surprised the concept hasn't had more traction in the 40K universe!

Thanks man!  Granted, most of the design work was done by Victoria Lamb from these series of miniatures that she painted and converted: www.coolminiornot.com/71469

I'm so glad you decided to follow through with another related piece! That was fast!

I see you really wanted to do that captain, you did a nice job of adding that Oriental/Samurai flair. So much great detail here, both with the armor and the lighting/effects, I think everything works here but any more smoke or haze might occlude the overall intention of your work! Never the less, the captain as a strong central focus is really well done. Amazing to see an actionn shot like this all from a single squad that inspired someone else. Fascinating how works of one artist impact another.

Great work sir! :la:
