Warhamster 40K: Black Templar

By ursulav
3K Favourites
I made a Warhamster 40K crack over the weekend and thought it was a totally obvious joke. Then I went online and discovered that yes, yes it was, but I figured what the hell, I'd illustrate it anyway. (As my friend Kit says, "It may have been done before, but YOU haven't done it yet!")

My boyfriend's a Warhammer 40K nerd, and kindly loaned me his books on painting space marines so that I could get some approximation of the armor right. (And by loaned I mean "flung at me with disturbing enthusiasm.")

Original is 8 x 10 or thereabouts, mixed media--I have no idea how people paint those little fiddly miniatures, so this is as close as I'm gonna get.

Original is going to Anthrocon unless somebody hits me up for the original first, and prints are available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

This explains why the Imperium is so messed up, it's run by Skavens.
