I experimented further with glazing, this time using it to shade the armour plating. I still really can’t put my finger on it though. My patience is not made for those dozens of watery brushstrokes I guess. As always phorographing red is pain in the ass, irl the red has a more orange tint to it.

Hopefully this painted up picture shows better what I had in mind with making Hamadrya look like it’s “forming in to being” from the aether. I tried to tie the blue coloring to the red-orange-pink color of Huron by using purple for the base. If somebody wonders the colourscheme this was the inspiration for it.

Thanks for looking! A little heads up for what’s about to come next. You saw that new Burning of Prospero set? That and loads of bits hoarding from eBay is next on the list.

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.

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”

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.
