Black Templars - High Marshall Ludoldus by Greyall Black Templars - High Marshall Ludoldus by Greyall
High Marshall Ludoldus of the Black Templars. The Templars' fluff speaks of two Crusades lead by Ludoldus, but separated by many years, which would make the Marshall around 1.500 years old. Another one of 40K's mysteries.

This is my last drawing of 2012 (unless some miracle happens). One hell of a year in the artistic department.

Thank you very much to all of you, guys. Hope you like this guy.

PS: The overall design and specific elements like the sword, chains on the wrists and left shoulder pad belong to the friend who requested this fellow.

A 1,500 year old space marine wouldn't really seem out of place, in my opinion. Hell, Bjorn fought alongside the damn Emperor and he's still kicking around with the Space Woofs, albeit in a dreadnought.

Theoretically, they can last and fight for millennia, there's just too high a bullet-per-minute ratio for them to do so :p

This does service to one of the most awesome High Marshals ever.

Templars are a pain to draw, but the end product is worth it.

His battle-barge might have spent four weeks travelling from the first Crusade to the next, but have actually come back out in realspace a few hundred years later. Warp travel is like that, after all.

Hmm, my only gripe is the pose. It's not bad but it looks...uncertain. I don't know if that makes any sense.

The details are crazy, although the boot looks a little plain... oh well :shrug:

Another well done piece.but have you put pupils in? because there are dots in the eye area that give him a really wall-eyed feel. Everything else holds to your usual quality, its just a little detail I can't unsee once noticed

They are like Popes, they take the name of a favorite predecessor and name themselves this and undertake a crusade

:) Just like the Emperor's Champion where the champion loses his given name to become simpky the emperor's champion. I would say it's normal for Black templars to lose their identity for the profit of the crusade. The oldest Marines are The blood angels and the Space wolves. Logan is now more than 1000 years old ( around 1200 now ) and he's been trained by Ulrik when Ulrik was already a grizzled veteran with white hair... Safe to assume that he's 1500+ years old. Dante is already known to be 1400 years old now. But both of these chapters have very pure Geneseed. The rest of the chapters had their geneseed corrupted when Alpharius stole the Primarch template Gene-coder. Even if it was sabotaged first there was still harm to be wrought on the Astartes geneseed.

^_^ I'm getting beside the point now... Have a happy new year and keep those amazing drawings coming in 2013.

They provide me with the inspiration and universe to draw these, I couldn't do that. Plus, what can I teach to Jes Goodwin? ;) Thanks, mate
