Fore we are Man's Divine Blade!~

I had always wanted to try a painting on the mighty Space marines of the Warhammer 40k universe since I was first introduce to them when I started work in IFS. How else but to start with the mightiest amongst them, the Grey Knights.

I had the most fun during the research and studies of the chapter, and it really lifted my mood during the the entire period.

Hope I did them justice, no pun intended :p

P.S Forgot to add, 666 is the Chapter number of the Grey Knights for those who don't know :p Forgot to mention it, half assuming everyone is into 40k here :p

No it's not.

The original Warhammer literally refer to the warhammer used by the First Emperor of men in the Warhammer Fantasy.

As in the emperor's hammer.

Holy frik, that guy is a Juggernaut. I mean, just look at him! He's carrying that huge amount of armor and it's almost nothing to him! And that Star Wars rip-off.. it's just cool.

It's not a rip off. WH 40K has nothink in common with star wars.

Purge the Daemon! Let none stop the power of the Ordo Malleus. The Wrath of the Grey Knights shall slay the un-holy filth and banish them from our realm. FOR THE EMPEROR!
