Bloodlust by CELENG Bloodlust by CELENG
"Treat them with honour, my Brothers. Not because they will bring us victory this day, but because their fate will one day be ours." -- Astorath the Grim, Blood Angels High Chaplain, referring to the Astartes of the Death Company

to be honest, i'd rather face a full company of deathwing terminators than one of these guys in combat

i made this for a promotional poster in a local shop (which sells GW stuff obviously)
the owner specifically asked for a death company astartes picture.. still can't figure out why he wanted that though.

i'm open for more commission work
MSG me for details

So much cooler than vampires. Except for maybe a couple actors who played Dracula, like Christopher Lee and Leslie Nielsen.

he's a death company space marine, soldiers like him have fallen to "the Black rage" making them little more than blood crazed killing machines. The black rage comes from an imprinted memory of Sanguinius' death on horus' ship, driving them mad, a progressed version of the red thirst, which blood angel space marines and blood angel successor chapters fight to keep under control each day, lest they become a death company space marine. due to their rage death company marines are able to shrug of wounds that would instantly kill normal marines(headshots or plasma rounds would still put them down).

the astertes who are as drenched in blood as the world eaters, are cursed with two sides of a violent coin, the black rage or the red thirst. Incredible art, just awesome.

I agree with facing some deathwing terminators than this guy. This dude will tear you apart and you'll feel every ounce pain he'll dish out lol.

Good job mate, I really like the atmosphere and the vibe. This is why I play Warhammer 40k.

Like I said, this depends if the Deathwing take you alive or not. If they do, then you will be begging for death at the hands of an interrogator chaplain.

it is great that some people remember the genetic flaws of the Astartes, not only regarding the Blood Angels, but the Salamanders and the Space Wolves as well

from my experience, people tend to forget or ignore such details that make the WH universe so amazing, and in most cases, so addictive

superb pic!

That is a very nice show of talent mate, but why is the space marines neck so thin? That's not really anatomically corect for a guy who has muscles that would put the best body builders to shame
