Greetings, been a while. Mostly I've done some work for various publishers of games and books (Fantasy Flight Games amongst others) but I also moved between countries in August and we are just now beginning to settle in proper.

Here is a little piece to remind you of the season coming (that of snivels and flu's)




Benares didn't know when he had succumbed to the plague, all he knew was that he wished to spread it,,,


Personal piece, Wh40k fanart.

~5hrs
Photoshop CS
Wacom Intuos4
Belgian Beers and Belgian foods

Plague Marines, Nurgle and Warhammer 40k are all Intellectual Property of Games Workshop.

id alter the skin tone to look more unhealthy but that apart it looks extremely well done!

has a nice adrian smith vibe to the style. well done.
only critique I'd have is that the top of the foreground shoulder pad is a bit flat between the trim and the ceramite

really cool, i like that it doesn't look like a normal plague marine (zombiefied) but really freaky and lots of small nurgley details. I'd agree with the above comments though just as minor points really, it looks great as is but would be interested to see if it would look even better with them added, hope you post more stuff

Thnks, I think that it'd be safe to say that I wont add anything more on this, if I only spent 5 hrs then it's safe to say that it is something I made inbetween painting for work.

This comment intrigues me though... how do you propose the skintone looks healthy right now? :confused:

I always get jealous when I see someone with this sort of skill :p

Great work as others have said, but you may want to include more greens and nasty bits when doing Nurgle. Right now he looks a tad Slaaneshi.

This is great stuff. Any chance we will see some loyalists in the future?

Though there are only greens and fleshy-reds in the entire image... And I thought the Nurgle iconography (that sits almost all over the entire armour) would sort of give away this demonpossessed marine...

Yes!

You might, I done alot of loyalist in the past though, might go for more renegade and heretical for a while now...

His armour is pretty good, I was talking about his face... the beady eyes, gaping maw and relatively unmarked skin remind me of the traditional Slaaneshi depiction:

... rather than the usual Nurgle look:

okay, sorry.
Never did like to go the traditional way with things and it shines through... I'll not give the face eyes aking to the facetted fly or a mouth that is a variant of a fly next time... Ill just go for bloated green moosh with cycloptic eye and...all them images that allready exist ;)
