Blood Angels - Givon Furiosangr by Greyall Blood Angels - Givon Furiosangr by Greyall
On Signus, while Sanguinius lay in the ground with his legs shattered and at the mercy of Ka'Bhanda, Givon Furiosangr was on the other side of the battleline, crushing a Slaaneshi beast's skull. Later, when the Angel recovered and brought the fight to the Bloodthirster's cathedral, the Company Champion of the 8th Company was about to turn on his brethren.

On Terra, while the Angel was being throttled by Horus, Furiosangr was defending one of the Palace's entrances against the Iron Warriors, despite his pleas to accompany the Primarch.

It is no wonder, then, that the man that came out of the Horus Heresy was vastly different from the humble, down-to-earth and good-humoured warrior who had served in the Blood Angels for nearly four centuries.

Darkening his armour and donning a tabard, Givon became a crusader, often being called the Vermillion Templar. Now shunning the company of most of his brethren, he fought with the cold rage of one who knows no amount of traitor dead can ease his own sense of failure for never being there to help his father.

As such, and though it was Givon's chainaxe, Tyrannus, that spelled the doom for thousands of heretics, it was the Angel's shield, The Wall of Sorrow, that became a relic for the Sons of Sanguinius. As detailed as a painting on the halls of the Legion's cathedral, the great shield depicts Furiosangr's view of the Blood Angels' responsibility for the death of their lord. Though the artificers of Baal claim no responsibility on it, the shield seems to exhude an aura of sorrow and despair.

So glad to be back to Power Armour. This is, so to speak, 'my own Astartes'. At first it was going to be a Black Templar, but then I figured I felt closer to Blood Angels.

I'll be finishing my Eldar next. Cheers, thanks for viewing and commenting.

Does the IOM still make chain axes?

Yeah, plenty of chapters use them, like the Space Wolves or Flesh Tearers. Chaos Space Marines just have more of them because they were much more prevalent in the imperium when they fled to the Eye of Terror, AFAIK.

Nice, chain axe! I still do not understand why it is so rare to see loyalist with such a great weapon. It seems that technical specs of chain axe is better then the chainsword has. And at last it is brutal!

Greyall Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
Aye, I fully agree. It seems the chainaxe is related to World Eaters and brutal Astartes, but then you see an Ultramarine with a big power axe and suddendly it's fine. Sure, the chain version splatters gore everywhere, etc., but so does a chainsword, even if to a lesser degree.

Yes, but the chain axe has bigger weight and power supply in my opinion. It makes axe better in penetrating through the heavy armor. Am i right? :confused:

:icongreyall:
Greyall Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013
Aye, I think so too, though some novels state that a chainweapon always has a hard time biting through power armour. That doesn't seem to apply to Khorne Berzerkers, though, but they're strong as hell.

Yup, it seems to be a problem of all chain weapons...If only somebody will not invent the power teeth technology for chain weapons. This will be a mess. =D

Aye. Though I can't understand why, the demoralising effect of a chainaxe alone should make it a weapon of choice. For everyone.

this is just so good! as a blood angel player myself i'm glad to see you really did the chapter / legion proud both in the drawing and backstory. my only (small) criticism would be that shields aren't very blood angel-ey, but with such a beautiful design it fits. great work!

He's a Champion, though, so they like to use shields. Also, he's become a crusader, so it's pretty apt.

Thank you very much.

Brutally sorrowful and morbidly moribund Blood Angel - not a light, joyous, cheersful and merciful angel, but somewhat cruel, darkly-hearted, sorrow-crazed, no-hope, psychotic, shatterminded, disillusioned type of fanatical angel-crusader, forever lost in painful grief and unredeemable state of mournful rage. Cold as void, furious as raging core of star, loyal and ferocious.
But... sometimes... I even hear his muffled groan - "I... will not... die... as... monster!"

I actually forgot to say anything about the Red Thirst, but he's actually pretty discreet about it, since he's always coldly furious and more than willing to slay some traitors in order to achieve justice...

Aye, he started like a Black Templar, hence the tabard and shield, but I like the concept of a crusader a lot, so I tried to make it work.

I just enjoy searching for the tiny details that add more to your work, like the dual angels depicted on the shield, the winged skull motif on the powerpack and the chain axe, and the winged Imperial icon showing a skull and two eagles :D

I'm guessing he's up against Black Legion Chaos Marines :?

Aye, though I imagined them as Sons of Horus, still, so wearing their sea-green armour. Actually, though, I don't know what colours they wore during and immediately after the Siege of Terra, so...

Absolutely fantastic image as always. But I'm a little confused about his post-heresy story. Did he go off completely on his own? On a first read I thought he'd become the chapter master for his own chapter, The Vermillion Templars.
