I took a liking to these here guys as soon as I saw them.

They're the Heralds of Light, created by this most talented gentleman:

Love it. Your work is amazing. How long does it take you to do one of these?

Thanks, mate. =)

Hard to say, I can take more than a week to finish it, or leave it due to lack of inspiration and pick it up again after a month. In terms of hours...about 5 or 6.

the 8-pointed star of chaos, other marines and imperial agents would shoot on sight at someone bearing the heretical symbol. No artificier would create such a blasphemous weapon or armor and if somehow the chapter gets away with all that Im sure the Inquisition has them under surveillance and suspicion for that symbol alone. but since its fan fiction you can do whatever you want.

I side with you on this one, mate. I saw this and was like: Can't tell if loyalist or HERESY! *BLAM*

It's clearly made to resemble a glowing star. That, along with the chapter's flawless service, should prevent outright hostility. As to being investigated by the Inquisition or whatever, everyone is.

I take critics pretty well, but there's a superior tone to many remarks on my 40k (a universe in which most things are arguable) drawings that gets harder to take with each new comentary. I pride myself on knowing the Warhammer 40000 setting, to an extent, so don't talk like I was an ignorant. The minimal nature of the majority of the mistakes I make should be enough to remind you that.

Aye, but they're Imperial Fists successors and on the "Courage and Honour" side of Space Marine Chapters.

... Anyone else notice that their Sun symbol has eight points as well? Not saying this chapter is cursed or anything, just that every chapter that had an eight pointed symbol at one point or another has gone renegade is all.

You'll have to ask their creator, but my guess is that these guys are as clean as a baby Ultramarine's behind.

Hence the U shape on the chest?

:icongreyall:
Greyall Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2011
Well, no, that was a purely aesthetic choice. I wanted to add the chapter's symbol to the chestplate, but I thought adding too many circles could take away the "grim" factor.

I see, kinda makes him look like a "chaotic" ultra smurf though. Please tell me they're armor isn't blue.

Thank you, good sir.

I just thought it was a little unorthodox to have a round weapon in a grimdark world but I guess you're right: once it starts swinging around and leaving orphans behind, everyone stops laughing.

Cheers =)

Are they Chaos Marines or what?
Reply
:icongreyall:
Greyall Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
No, mate, they're pure-strain loyalists. Their symbol is just a "spiked" halo. Like the iron halos space marine commanders use.

PS: And he didn't kill the half-guy next to him. That's a teammate of his.
