Apocalypse Now by NicolasRGiacondino Apocalypse Now by NicolasRGiacondino
The Emperor Protects! or so they say...

The Emperor certainly keeps me busy :) fellow watchers and watcherettes.

This is a personal milestone, because I finished this illustration in a record time of four days (with many other deadlines in-between). And, this being an A4 canvas, that's quite fast!

The brief for this one was simple, which is always the best kind of description. I had to render an epic, apocalyptic battle of Imperium vs. Chaos/everyone else, showing as many troops as I could.
Of course, the brief was simple, but the task was actually a bit titanic; and so not all of the troops I wanted to get into it did make the final cut. The main ones did, though: The Silver Skulls, The Death Korps of Krieg guardsmen, tanks, a titan, a Bloodthirster, ships in orbit, a doomed Moon and the Alpha Legion. Not everything I would've wanted, but most of it, I reckon...

As usual, you'll be the judges of the final product, so if you have any thoughts, please share.

Thanks for watching and encouraging me and I hope to see you very soon again!

And to think, this is just an average battle in Warhammer.

ahhh hells yeah
That's a great piece of work. Simply awesome, the more I look at it, the more stuff I discover. You should try doing one showing the Death Korps doing their thing - brutal trench warfare.

Loving the greens and blues in the sky and the way they tie back in with the Chaos forces' armor! The composition being divided by that swath warms and neutrals is interesting.

Wow, that's brilliant. Silver Skulls and Death Korps! Not much more to say. There is heaps of stuff going on and it's all interesting.
