Hey everyone!!!

I'm happy to share this new piece with you all. Rather than go Imperial for my third piece, I decided to pursue both Chaos and Xenos, in this case Slaanesh and Eldar.

This was a pretty intense piece to finish and definitely ended up being pretty glam-rock-tastic.

I'd love to hear your C&C, so please leave a comment below!

Awesome sauce! This has got to be one of the best 40k pics I've seen.

Considering that KoS looks like Zarakynel, this is an entirely effortless murderous stomp in her favor.

However, the more likely outcome is they bang and Khaine finally gets rid of that several million year pent up rage................................................And THEN Z steals his essence.

I think this is one of my favourite pieces of 40k art ever. I clicked on the 'buy the print' link and it didn't go anywhere, which made me sad.

thanks! I can't sell 40k themed prints, since I don't own the IP. :-/

You're welcome. I think I like the Keeper the best. Glad you didn't go with the goat/tentacle-faced bondage fan style. The more 'human' one looks really nice. I swear there's just a hint of exuberance in her as she leaps.

To steal a joke from the Nostalgia Critic:

An avatar strides into a darkened chamber. A voice purrs from the shadows. "Knock knock."

The avatar's voice is like molten rock: "Who's there?"

The Keeper leaps from the shadows. "Zuul, motherfrakker!"

...I'm a huge nerd, I admit.

It's a shame about the lack of prints. Ah well. Just wanted to give you a thumbs-up for whatever it's worth.

i agree. But it would have been funnier if it was the goat/cow/backwards-duck/tentacle/bondage style one.

As much as I hate Slaanesh, I just can't get over seeing one of the Dark Prince's servants take on an Avatar without flinching. Plus, that Avatar looks like a true badass. Well done, sir. Very well done.

Agreed. Khaine could probably use a roll in the Psychic hay. :)
