Hey guys,

Here's a piece I did last year for Fantasy Flight Games. This illustration was used in DeathWatch: The Emperor's Own.

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...

I think that's an Alien artifact and not Chaos. They're Deathwatch, after all.

Hmmm....what kind of Xenos artifact, though? Something from the Halo Stars? Or perhaps one of the minor Xenos races...

Zeredek Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2013
Either that or Necron.

TravellerZwei Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2013
Or a piece of Necron tech - or maybe even from Chaos worshiping humans, or humans that stole Xenos technology and adapted it.

Could be Eldar or Dark Eldar.

Those gits have been known to have tech that could touch the Warp.

I have a feeling the Space Marines are about to find out why that particular piece is not in use anymore.

That's exact;y what I was thinking. Especially as it's a Librarian that is falling to Chaos.
Reply
:icontravellerzwei:
TravellerZwei Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013
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.

:iconconorsheehy:
ConorSheehy Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013
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. 

That's some strong voojoo right there.

:icontravellerzwei:
TravellerZwei Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013
Well, I can understand what you mean by the strong training. But the strong training is BECAUSE they are suspectable to Chaos influence. I'm just sayin', despite all the training, there is a risk.

Or maybe it's an artifact from the Halo Stars region? Those really affect pyskers and navigators.

@ Object from the Halo stars: Quite possible, relics have some nasty tricks in their design.

Glorious!  The detailing on the armour is magnificent and the gesture sells it.
In particular the rearmost figure.  ;)

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 :)

I thought Exorcists could never be posessed again.. Or is it different for the Librarians they have?

Either way I think this pic is AWESOME!.

As a Librarian he should know better than to look into any suspicious items. Better to destroy it than to risk loss of one's soul.

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
Fantastic work!+fav
