Hey everyone,

More Warhammer 40,000 commissions, hurray! But seriously, I should have some non 40k stuff coming up soon.

This image features a terminator of the Emperor's Shields space marine chapter as he stands before a demon-infested plinth to the Chaos god Slaanesh.

Absolutely awesome artwork man! Love the way You've painted it, and it's so wonderful that actually someone used the Tartaros Terminator amor for an awesome picture!

I think this is your best one, though all your pieces are excellent.

Wow...This is amazing! Do you do commissions?
NicholasKay's avatar
I do, but I can't do pieces featuring GW IP.

Damn, that's right...They're clever about concealing loopholes, too...Well, that's a pity; I really like your work!

The Terminator armor looks like the Heresy era, which either makes this piece before w40k, or the wearer a mighty hero of the Emperor's Shields.

What's up with the highly decorated aircraft?

Space Marine: You believe in god?
Tau: No.
Space Marine: *shoots* Yes!
*turns*
Space Marine: You believe in god?
C. Space Marine: Yes.
Space Marine: You believe in my god?
C. Space Marine: No.
Space Marine: *shoots* Yes! My god has a bigger dick than your god.

It's funny since Space Marines do not believe in Gods...

Now that you mention it, I actually hardly recall them saying, "God-Emperor of Mankind"

But it makes good humor.

Beautiful job, I like the hammer and helmet especially.

A formidable warrior indeed! Something about the helmet makes him look mournful, which I find altogether appropriate. ;)
Especially nice detailing in the shield and hammer.

That's incredible. The tentacles-ground is a stunning concept, and the way the terminator is streading through it in all his contemptful glory makes it even more awesome.
