Swedish Terminators by NicholasKay Swedish Terminators by NicholasKay
Hey guys! For those who have been following along in my live streams, here's the final version of my "Swedish Terminators" painting.

Here are the live streams for this piece:www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

Without:www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEXlGx…
Tutorial: www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8vG22…

This piece was commissioned by an ultra cool Swede who wanted to see he and his brothers depicted as some uber badass Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Terminators of their own custom chapter (what's not to love??).

If you're interested in commissioning your own 40K or Fantasy themed portrait, feel free to email me at artist@nicholaskay.com for more info. I also do portraits in other settings (D&D, Skyrim, whatever you can imagine) so please don't hesitate to reach out.

All the best,
Nick

Nice touch with the Södermanland Coat of Arms even though I live in the Uppland parts of Stockholm myself. :)

I like how the ground is just welling up around their feet and crumbling, unable to sustain the weight of a terminator in a charge.

Really cool image. Course, now I have to link to this song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnAvNd…

Sabaton is a brilliant band, and their latest album, Carolus Rex, encompasses the history of the Swedish Empire, with a special emphasis on Charles XII. I had to play a few of the songs seeing this image. Long Live the Lion among Pots, and pity whoever is in the way of those three.

Strange mix of equipment, but I LOVE the detail. It's a pity, really, that we don't see many of these guys out on the streets here in Sweden anymore.

Hello fellow Deviants. I want to recommend a pencil drawing course that I have been follow for some time, the lessons are easy to follow and really improve my overall drawing skills tremendously (see my avatar!) --> [link]

All of them from Södermanland, but I spy Gotland in there. Can't place the dragon rampant vert on white field though.

Kickass job nevertheless!

Amazing work. I'd have thought that a Storm Shield would be a lot heavier-plated, though. Isn't that what the one on the left has?
