Au'Bry - Salamanders Firedrake Sergeant by Greyall Au'Bry - Salamanders Firedrake Sergeant by Greyall
Here's the Salamander Terminator

I wanted to give him a "walking tank" look, so I did little in the way and decoration but gave him those riveted plates...I think the effect is there.

The hammer is called 'Hellbender'. I went with a 'patched' look to give the impression that it's so powerful it's on the verge of cracking.

The shield was supposed to be anvil-shaped, but I couldn't come up with a way to make it look...well, badass.

Oh, and that's a Dark Eldar Incubus about to get owned.

I meant to do some civilians cowering near the column, but time didn't allow.

Hope you like it, Konrad Curze is next.

Isn't he .....too big?
Incubus ir about 2m height

The Incubus is assuming a low posture, imagine him standing up and he'd be close to the Terminator's height.

And it is called Tactical Dreadnought Armour ;)

I like my Marines extra large, anyway.

He may be a waling tank but the pure agility of the eldar of the dark will win him this combat =D.
And yes a dark eldar especially a Incubus will run laps around this hulk like a tactikal dreadnought armord marin.

Cool but I think he, even in Terminator armour, is a bit too big. Eldar are almost as high as Space Marines and the Terminator armour only ads about half of a meter to the Space Marine.

Still think it is cool.

I see your point, mate, but don't forget the Archon is crouched, add the upper leg (which might be a bit too big) to his height and you'll see he's not that far from the Terminator's size.

Also, I like my Space Marines in monster-size. They're a dominant force in the galaxy, let them show it.

Thanks =)

True, and there are some Chapters with extraordinarily large Battle Brothers.
And not to be mean or anything but that is a Incubi, but I guess it could be a Archon with a Klave. :)

i think the line work for this is just incredible if you ask me! i like the shape of the whole marine and i think the simplistic armour you intended does a lot to suggest a raw brutal power so i'd say this guy doesn't need a fancy decal covering him to smash a hole in somebodies face!

i like how impossing u made the salamander look compared to the Dark Eldar Incubus

how do u draw these, traditionaly or on the computer?
Reply
:icongreyall:
Greyall Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012
Traditionally, mate, then I just clean some pesky lines or dirt on the computer, as well as darkening the lines.

But IMO, I think he doesn't look that patched. >_<

I don't think I've ever felt such pressure about drawing a character as I'm feeling about Curze...this is one I mustn't slack on at any point.

Honestly though, another wonderful piece! If I could do decent coloring I would do it for this piece in a heart beat!
