World Eaters - Kharn by Greyall World Eaters - Kharn by Greyall
"You thought you'd have time to carry out your plan...you assumed, as easily as one does a hound's behaviour, that the brave morsels you set in our path would keep us occupied. Perhaps we would've skinned them, drank their blood. Dance around their pieces...

Listen to me, Ultramarine, and at least in death you might be enlightened:

Our days as bloodhounds of the Emperor are over. No longer do we start blindly for the first prey we're pointed at. No longer do any but our Primarch receive our obeyance.

We are the Eaters of Worlds, whelp, for us first blood comes after the most blood. What matters is that we feast on our terms.. We came for you and, as predictable, you armoured your throat, thinking we'd gnaw and snap at it while you killed us.

Do you think we'll let your Legion get to some sort of safe haven while we eviscerate the stragglers? We'll sweep over you and cut your routes. We'll maim those of you who retreat and kill the ones who try to face us. In the end, you will all burn..."

Khârn, Captain of the World Eaters

This wasn't supposed to be Kharn, when I started but, at some point I just said to myself ' One day you'll have to have the guts to draw him again'. And so I did. And I'm happy with the result =) I tried to incorporate a bit of Angron's miniature on Kharn's vambraces and leg armour.

Hope you like him, mates. Cheers.

PS: I tried to give him a facelift from this earlier representation. [link]

Oh my, do I love Pre-Heresy World Eaters. I really like this one, pretty axe. I suppose it's the one he used before he was given Gorechild (one of Angron's chainaxes).

Nice rendition of Kharn...I'm assuming that's him before he became 'the Betrayer' considering that his axe is not a chainaxe.

Your rendition of Kharn has supplied me with heady inspiration to build your creative design of Gorefather. Its always a pleasure to see the next and newest piece you come up with, and Eye constantly find myself coming to your work for bits of influence or to find some form of reference, as each and every piece is always grotesquely intricate and ornate in the most masterful of ways

The ax blade has an interesting design. From the quotation, it seems this shows Kharn shortly after the Heresy took off. Is this before Angron gifted him with Gorechild?

As always, you surprised me! Every time I see your arts, and I think you'd better not be. But no! You're doing even more amazing art.
P.S. Now I can not choose what art to take in order to make the figure. Take Kharn or Sintaur?

The most brutal and maniacal Astartes ever known. But you know? Even then and even after, Kharn was a gentleman. Strange, illogical, cruel, horrid and heinous type of gentleman, not those hypocritical ones from Old Earth, bot warrior-gentleman.
No double-gaming, no hypocrisy, no soft words. Only bitter reality of dirty and bloody side of war.
Kharn isn't knight in shinin armour, his armour white, blue and blood washed...
Strange, but this combination - white-blue armour and red blood - just as Russian flag - white-blue-red...

:icongreyall:
Greyall Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
Your observation on the Russian flag's colours is interesting, since he is shown to have either an Eastern-European or Arabian accent, in the audiobooks.

Well said, mate, completely agree.

I love pre-heresy/heresy Kharn. As bloodthirsty as he is, (especially in the modern era) it's always interesting to know that at one time he was the calm and collected voice of reason to Angron.

Indeed, mate. I too share the love for Kharn. Can't wait for his shows of badassery to begin in the Heresy novels.
