If i was going to be in a space marine chapter it would be the space wolves. Because they dont take any crap from any other chapters. Very cool picture.

Wow this work is fantastic, I actually praised it aloud when I saw it. The marine really lives up to the idea of a powerful space warrior/viking bedecked in armor crafted by others like him. Men whose lives revolve around the exclusive fraternity of the battle brothers of the Adeptus Astartes. 

It isn't hyper detailed and so busy that a viewer would miss the work put into this picture, yet small touches like the wolf image on the bolt pistol are excellent and imaginative. 

Furthermore, this marine actually looks 'realistic' his features are proportional and suggest the sheer bulk of the armor that he is wearing. This image is excellent thank you for posting it.

Fantastic work, Nicholas! :clap:

This is probably one of your best Space Marine pictures yet. I really love the work you did on the marine. Both in terms of detail, damage, and sense of form and presence (meaning that when I look at the armor plates and bolt pistol, I feel like I could reach into the picture and be able to get a feel for their shape and weight).

I also really like the shade of yellow you used, not to mention the work you did on the gemstones.

There's really far too much I could call out on, so I'll suffice to say "great job" again. :)
