I find it interesting that it's an Exorcist who's being tempted by that sphere. How ironic - one of those supposed to be near invisible to daemons and be great daemonhunters themselves is being tempted by the very thing they supposedly could never fall for...
Well, the fact that it is a Librarian falling to Chaos isn't so surprising; they are more likely to hear the whispers of Chaos, you know, despite their training, simply because they are psykers. They have to touch the warp every day in using their powers.
Yet Librarians would expect to hear the whispers of Chaos, hence their rigorous training. A space marine Librarian has proven himself capable of withstanding the warps influence and sturdy enough to accept the adaptations. Plus, as you said, he is an Exorcist meaning he's almost a grey knight through the sheer amount of conditioning he has undergone.
And still despite all of this, he is falling to chaos.
Amazing work here. I love the idea behind it, the marine aiming his bolt pistol at the Librarian's head thinking he might be corrupted or already has been. The look and details on the Librarian's face only furthers this. Look forward to seeing more of your awesome work.
Both space marines in this drawing is part of the Deathwatch which is the Ordo Xenos chamber militant space marines from all chapters may serve in deathwatch if they show potent skill in killing xenos space marines that serve in the deathwatch gets their armor painted black except for their right and left shoulder pad the right shoulder pad carries the battle brothers chapter icon and colors while the left whoulder pad is painted silver and carries the Inquisition's insignia some marine also show their chapters iconography on their kneepads which is where i noticed the imperial fists logo
A librarian of the exorcist chapter, now that's pretty awesome! And I like his 'My Preciousssss' face. XD Also, really liking the gold filigree against the black armor. I wish I could somehow paint my models that way.
Between this ironsides11.deviantart.com/art… and the Templar here, I'm starting to think that the Black Templars always take it upon themselves to deal with corrupted Deathwatch marines, sort of like informal commissars. XD
