Greetings all
This is the result of a collaboration work with :icongreyall:
~Greyall , I loved his armor designs and line work, as of you all :D , so we decided to add some colors to the mix.

Original Line art here:

I went with a comic style for coloring the design, I didnt want to lose the quality of the original. I hope you like it.
This is hopefully this is the start of many more to come.

C&c are more than welcome.

Just nitpicking, but when you are so ridiculously fortified that you look like a five-year-old trying on his dad's armor, do you really need the shield?

more armor doesn't heart

Well sort of, yes. But unless that shield is made of some sort of super-duper hard "contrivium" alloy, way harder than the rest of the armor, than it's almost completely pointless! Real armored combatants of old didn't usually wield shields, simply because they didn't really need them. Of course, there were the uncommon instances where men in armor bore shields to defend against blunt weapons like maces and hammers, designed to cave in armor. But this guy already looks absurdly well protected, and he even has the range advantage with that big bad bardiche he's carrying! So what purpose is that little black dinner platter really going to serve?

You know, besides looking badass. It does do that. Shrug

Intimidation can win the battle before it even begins.

Your philosophy is not without merit. ::):

I could just picture this, 12 ft piece of godliness starring over the Persian Armies, "Where is your god now?"

Wow! You and your friend have made an amazing work!
Combine the fighting potential of a space marine with the resistance of a terminator armor is terrifying!

I think the work on the armor design is superb; although quite inaccurate regarding the Custodes' actual pattern, it is indeed am powerful reimagination halfway between a cataphract armor and a roman plate. Awesome work, the only thing missing in my opinion is some fitting background, but otherwise... perfect.

Thanx :D
Well I promised Greyall with another collab, so if I got the time I shall color another one of his awesome drawings

Moloc is a jackass, making him one of my favourite Astartes.

That being said this picture is beautiful and does a great job of portraying the rather ornate nature of Terminator Armour, I love the greek overtones though I never 100% got it from the Minotaurs. Nevertheless it fits Asterion perfectly, though my only complaint being that I would've personally rendered The Black Spear a little differently, mainly to incorperate the one-shot las-weapon built into it. Overall this is an incredible picture and one I would personally frame on my wall.

Specialty: Killing Space Marines. Moloc you glorious bastard...

Thanx a lot for the comment, Yeah Greyall is a great armor artist. I hope we could do some more collab in the future :D

your colouring is what makes it stand out, though. This feels like it should be a page in a comic, the lighting and style compliments Grayall's design and this looks as though having speech bubbles and action effects around it would be quite natural. I really look forward to more collabs from you guys. Heck if I wasn't poor I'd commission a Minotaurs comic, considering how well this picture turned out.
