Kayvaan Shrike, Captain of the Raven Guard by Greyall Kayvaan Shrike, Captain of the Raven Guard by Greyall
A reimagining of Captain Shrike of the Raven Guard, whose current miniature is not very stealthy. This version was thought out to be all in black, with silver details. Oh, and I tried to give him a pair of Lightning Claws worthy of having belonged to a Primarch.

Lots of fun drawing this guy.

Cheers, all

Thanks, man, I was afraid it wouldn't be very "Raven Guard-like" to wear trophy helmets, but it goes along well with terror and sabotage tactics, methinks.

I think it works perfectly for what you stated. Terror tactics are very effective especially when he comes out of the shadows with heads on his belt :D

Aye, a Wolverinish system would be lighter on the user...meh, go figure. It does look more awesome this way.

yeah but it doesnt makes sense...
powerfist = heavy,slow.
powerfist+claws = fast!!!

isnt he a shadow-captain?
Reply

Greyall Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013
Aye, something like that, I think. He's a master stealth-warrior, that's for sure. That's also why I thought of him as black and dark metal, taking away the very unstealthy white.

I especially like what you did on the tips of the gauntlet's and feet. Really reinforces the idea of talons.

Pretty awesome piece, one snag and forgive me for saying it. The right lightning claw looks a tad bit to small compared to the left.. I'm thinking more Depth of Field and foreshortening terms rather than proportion. Apart from this it's a great piece, very detailed.

Angron's daemon form is cool, I've actually been considering taking on him. We'll see. Thanks, mate.

Have you read "hunt for voldorious"?
it has white scars and raven guard working together
Kayvaan Shrike and Korsorro Kahn are two of the main characters.
At one point in the story, shrike gets swarmed by cultists and traitor militia and he methodically cuts his way through them.

Nothing proves the value of Lightning Claws like fleshy cultists (or Imperial Guard). Is he an interesting character, in the novel? Never read it.

kayvaan shrike's a little bit angst-y but so is his entire chapter.
Shrike and Korsarro Khan wind up representing two of the ways that loyal space marines look at the galaxy: Shrike sees the absurd amounts of death in the galaxy as really depressing while Khan and the White Scars use their honor system to console themselves over the deaths of others
