Renegade by OEVRLORD Renegade by OEVRLORD
This is a Chaos Space Marine renegade. I was reading Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness, and noticed the pictures of 'Chaos Armour,' particularly the one on page 252.

I don't know what went wrong, but for some reason, Games-Workshop abandoned the organic, almost Giger-esque looking armour in favour of plain looking armour with spikes on it. I bet it had something to do with Jervis Johnson. Chaos is a strange power, and the gift of chaos armour should reflect the extra-dimensional essence of their deities.

This one is of the World Eaters legion, who according to the old fluff, still viewed themselves as righteous. It was the 'False Emperor' and his other chapters that have sunken into decadence and depravity.

Stunning attention to detail, you've really captured the essence of rogue trader era csm and married those features quite well with contemporary armor elements.

well, ive been told of your art for quite some time now by crazyjay, and now i have proof of your awesomeness. praise be to you good sir.
great work of art here.

2 other things: #1 did you do the "rake their backs" joke?
#2 the chaos star in the upper left is wonky... you can ignore that bit if you want though...

Thank you kindly. I am honoured.

Yes, I made the 'Rake Their Backs' joke. However, that was done a while ago on my old, rubbishy DA profile that I made in high school. I know the star is a bit wonky though. I just wanted something to put there. It seemed a bit bland otherwise.

Thanks for the comment.

Now THIS is something to be proud of, mate. Although I suggest you extend the arms out from the body so they're not as hidden by the detail.

Thank you! I wanted him to seem more 'hunched-over' sort of, like how the old miniatures appeared. Like, you could imagine him (shuffling?) down a narrow spaceship corridor.

Haha, no worries! I dunno if I could imagine him even FITTING down a corridor, he looks pretty massive.

Favourited.

This is fantastic. Looks like it would pretty much fit right in on the pages of the RoC books. By GIMP I presume you mean you've just corrected the contrast or such?

I do like the current spiky GW style, but I too wish they'd kept the old style around. Chaos marines should come in all kinds of bizarre forms IMO, some to the point of even being unrecognisable as such.

OEVRLORD Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks very much. I completely agree that chaos marines armour should look warped, and unusual. It really depends who we're talking about.
I think the current style really suits legions such as Iron Warriors, but maybe legions like the Emperor's Children should be warped in reflection of Slaanesh's own warped nature.

Some of the older miniatures used to have similar appearance, but they just changed unfortunately. And thank you very much for the watch :D

Hmm, I saw something a bit similar, but your's better =)

btw, I wonder, do you familiar with :icontorture-device:'s work?
Also, check this out: [link] (it's not official, of course) Haven't read it yet, but it looks interesting

You're welcome =)

Just wondering =) I really like his works (btw, I heard that he is really a girl, but I can't believe in it)

Have you ever heard about renegade Chaos God, Malal?
Reply
:iconoevrlord:
OEVRLORD Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Malal is the 5th Chaos God, isn't he? There's not a great deal of information regarding Malal, or the Sons of Malice, his dedicated legion. All I know is that he's the best at chess! :lmao:
Reply
:iconbossofnod:
BossOfNOD Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2010
=)
Here about SoM: [link]
Malal is god of anarchy, hate and anger, he wants to destroy absolutely everything, other Chaos Gods and even himself.
Now he don't exists because GW lost rights on him, so instead of Malal there is Malice, but this one is much weaker than Malal.

btw, my current avatar is made in Sons of Malice badge's style =)
