Alleluia! May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest,
Alleluia. The Choir of Saints have found the well-spring of life and door of Paradise,
Alleluia. Weeping at the grave creates the song: Alleluia. 
Come, enjoy rewards and crowns I have prepared for you.

Pre Untiy song, unknown. 

This is the project I worked on over the Christmas break. I knew unless I painted it then, I wouldn't have another long stretch off my work load until next year. The inspiration for this piece came from Master of Mankind, an offhand comment by the Bringer of Sorrows to Arkan Land describes Baal's culture resembling that of the Holy Roman Empire. Little details like this provide a context to explore the artwork and develop pieces like this.

Those large open space on the carapace cried out for some form of freehand and mapping it proved to be troublesome. Lots of time was spent just getting the proportions right to begin the paint work.

Enjoy the weekender guys! See you there.


  1. That is nothing short of art.

  2. ... JUST ...
    Art of the month (year?).

  3. I never would have thought of putting Byzantine art together with the Blood Angels, but what you've done here shows it's a perfect match.
