6th Edition - Aztec Style by Greyall 6th Edition - Aztec Style by Greyall
What if the 6th Edition Rulebook for Warhammer 40K (amazing artwork inside, by the way) had starred the Rainbow Warriors Chapter?

PS: The Aztec interpretation for the Chapter is not my idea, credit goes to Phillip S. and Aquilanus, a good mate from the Bolter & Chainsword forums.

Hope you like it, mates. I promise to be more regular with my submissions, from now on.

But first, a piece for the woman I love. =)

Took me long enough to get around to making a dA profile (I'm not an artist, so I feel like I'm infiltrating here *lurk* )

Whilst Greyall has credited Phillip S and I with their Aztec theme, I can't take too much in the way of credit - there have been a fair few Rainbow Warrior armies in the last few years before my interpretation and quite a few are in a similar vein. As many will know, I do have a seriously difficult time shutting up about them as a Chapter and this artwork.

However, I do want to say this - Greyall hit the nail on the head for certain when he did this.

It's been sometime since he did this piece and whenever I look at it I STILL have to hold my jaw shut.

Kudos mate, kudos ^_^

A pleasure to see you here, mate, welcome.

And thanks a bunch. I was going for a bit more comedy, but then I looked at yours and Phillip's work and the Aztec Marines' power hit me.

So credit is certainly not overdue.

I agree with all the Mex's here this is truly awesome Aztec's, it would be awesome if you built up on this to make an army.

This is an idea I have flirted with for years and about the only way I'd ever consider playing marines.

My eyes are singing in joy ! You seriously need to have your personnal flag placed on the Hall of Eternity, that work deserved to be Emperor-approved ! Even though the name 'rainbow warrior' feels off to me ... maybe it's because my country sank greenpeace's boat :X

Blame GW. But the name comes from some mythos about warriors from the world of the dead traversing a rainbow road. It's more awesome than it sounds =)

Thanks a lot, my man.

Hey, Greyall, this is an extraordinary piece you've got here!
Check out this article from 1d4chan, [link] , perhaps they could be members of the Blood Jaguars?

Yeah, I caught the mythos part in the other comments, but I still think GW epic failed on this one.

As for the praise, it's no problem. [THE INQUISITION APPROVES]
