"Every librarium-borne swordsman will tell you the greatest warriors make their weapons an extension of themselves...Yet arm themselves with unyieldy slabs of metal or mauls whose biggest purpose is to be better at killing than all the other banner standards.
As ever, the answer is to be found in our instincts. For if my very blood burns for me to vanquish every traitor of Man with my hands and finish their life with the purest contempt, then those shall be my weapons."
Arslan Namdai, The Granite Lion, The Khan's Scribe
My first character in the Champions of the Heresy series, a grizzled White Scar veteran.
The powerfist is called The Paw, in keeping with Arslan's leonine theme ('Arslan' is mongolian for 'Lion'). I also tried to make the fingers look like thunderbolts.
Namdai's other weapon is the Spiteful Gaze, a ceremonial blade used in the sacrifice of deserters and dishonored warriors. It is not a power weapon, but its blade is made of an extremely dense metal, which means that, even against power-armoured opponents, it excels in its duty: delivering pulverizing finishing blows.
Loved drawing this fellow. Hope you like watching him, as well. Next...here be dragons.
Update: ShadowEngine has done a good job in bringing this old coot to life. Behold: [link]
