Consecrators Assault Captain by Greyall Consecrators Assault Captain by Greyall
Hi, everyone.

This here is a gift for Captain Semper, a really nice chap at Bolter & Chainsword who helped me with the Greek in my Asterion Moloc depiction.

He asked for an Assault Captain of the Consecrators, one of the Dark Angels' successors Chapters - [link] These guys have been granted some the former Legion's best artificer armours.

Semper wanted a character who looked both archaic and ruthless. He gave me a choice between Mk.2 and Mk.5. I chose the first. While Mk.5 (my favourite of the two, as well as Semper's) is outright badass and ruthless, it also is more 'cliché' in both those senses. I wanted to make this Captain more of an 'unstoppable force', an impersonal killer of the Chapter's antiquity. In terms of facelessness and impersonalization, Mk2, with its robotic style, is king.

Now, ruthlessness is not something the Unforgiven Chapters outright convey, so this guy had to show it in acceptable ways, namely through a few skulls (Unforgiven carry those around), and trophies taken from Fallen Dark Angels, such as bones and that cloaked skull up there. Hey, he just told the Chapter Master the scum fought back.

I'm very proud of this guy. Sure, there are issues with perspective here and there, but it came off nicely, all things considered. And he was a blast to draw.
