Sanguinius - Primarch of the Blood Angels by Greyall Sanguinius - Primarch of the Blood Angels by Greyall
First of all, I want to apologize for not detailing the wings. Here's the reason.

I sketched a pose for this guy about six times.

I started him about four times.

I am effing sick of him.

I think I've done a reasonable job, I'm happy with him - oh, the muscle pattern is all wrong...goddamit.

I love you all.

I think the wing armor was pretty creative and all the details elevate Sanguinius to a whole new level of awesomeness! :)

Well, before the Emperor started the creation of Space Marines as we know them, he created 20 Primarchs. Born from genetic engineering and a bit of Warp (magic), the Primarchs are basically the pinnacle of a human being. Super strong, smart, powerful. They are to a space marine what a space marine is to a human, in terms of abilities.

While the Primarchs were still in embryonic state, the Chaos Gods scattered them across the Galaxy, forcing the Emperor to look for them everywhere.

In the meantime, he used the Primarchs' genetic material to create the Space Marines. As there were 20 Primarchs, so did the Emperor form 20 Legions of Space Marines, each Legion's warriors sharing some genetic traits with their Primarchs (Space Marines refer to their respective Primarch as gene-father).

Hope that helped. If you can, do read more on the subject, this stage in Imperium History is awesome.

Cheers =)

I can send you the file, if you want.

What about the downloadable version? I think it's a little bigger than the actual drawing, isn't it usable?
