Hehe, I actually first thought that was the toyota logo on his chest, but it's not actually all that similar

This is great, it looks amazing and the slightly Greek style works really well. That said, look at this guy's smug, punchable face, I really hope this is the one Russ destroyed, because the thought of Russ punching this guy in the face makes me smile. Amazing work though

I've seen a lot of second legion primarch ideas, but this was the first that made me smile.

That puts it ahead of the others.

It's the expression.  Something about it just amuses me to no end.

looks cool and all but he doesnt really look much like a primarch. More like a captain if even that. Hes not very grandiose as all the other primarchs are.

:iconsimiteen:
simiteen Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Ironically, I find that very fitting, since Alexandros has typically eschewed the grandiose to interact with the everyday citizenry.

Well one must follow the concept brief :(  the original sketch had a bigger armor with a lot of things going around in it (ornament, skulls and stuff) but the client chose this direction and he liked the final result, so that what counts I guess :P
But yeah when I work on my personal Primarchs I have more freedom to experiment.

Why aren't there pictures of Primarchs doing mundane tasks like eating or fixing armor?

It ties into how they were originally just figures of legend back when Warhammer 40,000 first started. Even in all of the Horus Heresy books, you won't find the Primarchs doing a lot of simple stuff. The one example I can think of is Fulgrim, Primarch of the III Legion, experimenting with artistic adventures.

Great work. Now that I think about it, the primarchs don't usually have shields in play. A missing niche there.
Reply
:iconsimiteen:
simiteen Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Indeed. When I first started creating him, it was the first time I noticed no other Primarch uses a shield as part of their standard gear. So, I decided to take the ancient Greek/Spartan warrior and bring that archetype into the 31st millennium. I'm satisfied with the results so far.

I think because they don't need a shield, but it doesn't look that bad and I think it works with the short sword.

what is his story??
Reply

simiteen Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Alexandros Darshan VonSalim is the Master of the II Legion. The third Primarch found after Horus and Leman Russ, he is one of the most powerful psykers, specializing in the disciplines of Telepathy and Divination. Unlike most of his brothers, Alex is less concerned with conquering in the name of the Emperor and more focused on Humanity's protection. As such, his legion is one of the few that has a mastery of defensive warfare, utilizing shield walls, support psykers, and a veteran tank commander corps. 

He also likes to tell jokes in his spare time.

That's just a brief summary. I've written a companion story for him that can be read here: heresy30k.invisionzone.com/ind…

Am I missing something here? There's no Primarch called alex as far as I know.

He's a missing Primarch. In the canon, there are two legions/primarchs that are left completely blank for fans to fill in. Alexandros is my attempt at the II Legion and Primarch. If you want to read his story (which is nearing the length of a novella), here's the thread: heresy30k.invisionzone.com/ind…
