Hive-Gorger Murciel by Greyall Hive-Gorger Murciel by Greyall
Ordo Malleus Channel 88349-Auron: Inquisitor Lord ########

Source: Agent Theta/47 - Sergeant Arriaga, Inquisitorial Storm Trooper Squad 759

Priority: High

My Lord ########, we've completed the interrogation of the survivors of Hive Rasgus. All 35 of them, sir, every single one a husband and father, most driven to irreparable madness from witnessing their families' slaughter. Pardon the excessive detail, Lord, but it matches the hive massacre we've been investigating for the past six months in Bolvantus, down to the number, gender and marital status of those left alive.
And again, retrieved pict-data from the Hive's internal circuit shows a single attacker. Lord, I remember well your reaction on Bolvantus, but we've put every capable servitor to work on this and every cross-hour and visual analysis results in the attack having been perpetrated by a single fiend. That it seems like a traitor Astartes in Tactical Dreadnought Armour does little to quell the astonishment, Lord.
The first attack was on the Hive-Governor's facilities, and with no relevant material damage to report, which explains the late aid-request to our fleet. From there, the traitor Astartes stalked various sections of the Hive across the following two months, always with the same emphasis on psychological warfare: taking hold of the bloc's audio circuit to broadcast a constant, bass laughter that chills the spine even with the data's bad state. From then, he...We have almost a million dead in two months, Lord - not counting the Bolvantus situation - and without the use of a single explosive or any weapon of greater power than a heavy flamer...
Shock and unrest are starting to take root on some soldiers, something I've done my best to put down, even resorting to exerting exemplary discipline upon Corporate Georgos.

+++FOR INQUISITORIAL EYES ONLY+++

Dammit, #####, we've fought alongside each other for years, you know I trust your judgement more than I do mine. I'm fully aware of how much you risk in requesting reinforcements from the Ordo, but we can't put this monster to the blade with just our men. I beg of you, listen to me, before we lose far more.

End of Message

Ravagas Murciel, Night Lords Terminator, second of the series. I think it shows I've recently bought and liked the Vampire Counts Armybook.

Hope you like it.

This dude looks completely Gothic, and his backstory is terrifying as well.
I think you should consider posting short stories in the 40k universe. You're a good writer. :)

Oh, I would too =) But they're doing fine, methinks, the newest Chaos minis are cool, if a little full with bling. The Dark Vengeance one, though, now those are awesome.

Somehow that's scarier than doing it for the Gods of Chaos.

Aye. To think of a 3 meters-tall, one ton armoured psychopath - one armed with a greatsword and a heavy flamer - being capable of sneaking into cargo ships to travel from one planet to planet and murder whole populations must be one of the worst nightmares of an Inquisitor. And then there's the question of what to do if the killer chooses to engage the Inquisition's forces. It's got thousands of years of experience on terrorizing people, I'm sure he's found a couple that work on Inquisitors.

Crazygoblin21 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2011
I think he is more of a monster because he's achieved it without the favor of chaos or mutations. Yeah I bet he can mindrape inquisitors, no psyker powers needed. In combat I can imagine him setting fire to everything and everyone then going about chopping anything that still stands.

Ave Dominous Nox!

The only constructive criticism I have is that it looks like the hands are small, is that just the armours hugeness or am I seeing things?
Reply
:icongreyall:
Greyall Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2011
I like deviate from the "huge-hands" style, sometimes I take it too far, but in this case, I think it's fairly proportional. Smaller arms and hands make the overall figure more elegant, in my opinion. Thank you, mate. =)
