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.
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.
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”
“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.”
