Tyrant of Badab

Long time no see chaps! Here’s a little something I’ve been working on lately. An iconic character with the coolest backround – And my all-time favorite Champion of Chaos.


Huron Blackheart and Hamadrya



With my take I’am aiming to  create a more realistic version that shows his formidable bulk of corrupted astartes physique. Bound to machines and re-constructed from charred flesh, combined with bionics and ruinous powers to stand and command once more.


Armour of Pride – Warp infused and bulging with auxiliary support systems of the Blood Reaver


The protective Iron Halo and his power axe


The ultimate combat weapon, Tyrant’s Claw: Monstrous bionic arm with clawed powerfist that has built-in heavy flamer incorporated, built by Armenneus Valthex, also known as the Alchemancer

I wanted to build Hamadrya more true to it’s lore, make it look like it’s just forming into being from ground and breaking through the empyrean;

“The Hamadrya appeared at his side then, almost as insubstantial as a wisp of vapour. As Huron recovered and his power grew, the Hamadrya likewise grew and took on a more cohesive shape. Its exact appearance is unknown; sometimes it is invisible, and when it chooses to appear it can be avian, reptilian, or mammalian in shape”


It’s left claw coming into being



Chaotic shapes that vary greatly


Can it be true, can the Tyrant of Badab yet live, at least in some form by some foul agency? I have seen too many miracles both wondrous and nightmarish to claim it cannot be so. Are we, Mankind, then doomed to be always the father of our own torment, the genesis of our own destruction, time and time again? God Emperor help us – ever has it been so.
