This is beautiful and the Marine looks like he knows he has already won and is just swanking his way around curbstomping the enemies of Man.  As befits Pre-Heresy, his armor’s fine details come togethet to make it look a lot more advanced than current powered armor and his weapon is a fittingly confusing mix of what is clearly bullets and a barrel that looks like it implies some sort of energy manipulation.  Like an Astartes sized, two-handed macro-stubbed (a powerful Mechanicus infantry weapon).

amazing work
and not to sound cocky but you say its a Pre-Heresy Death guard
then how come that he has a Star Phantoms chapter symbol on his shoulder and a death specters symbol on his knee
and a blood raven Banner in the corner? xD

i love the picture though

Not cocky at all. I'm happy to admit that I messed with canon. I was free styling across chapters. It started as a fairly pure PHD and went off the rails in a hurry lol.

Beautifully done. Is that from Warhammer? I never git into the game. D&D was a more affordable opton for me back in the day.

All I know is the few people I know that are in to the Warhamer game. They spend a shit ton of money and time on it.

Really impressive minis though. ;)

Awesome and BADASS!!! But it's not a Death Guard, the symbol on the shoulder pad and knee guard is wrong. Those symbols belong to the Star Phantoms or the Death Specters Chapters. Also the colouring is wrong.

Yep I know. I appreciate the pointers. And I knew I was getting it mostly wrong partly right. No disrespect to the universe which of course is phenomenal. I do however need a very strong visual guide whenever I dive into this property for just these reasons otherwise I just kitchen sink it and put in whatever I dig.
