Tearer of Flesh by NicolasRGiacondino Tearer of Flesh by NicolasRGiacondino
Dear watchers and watcherettes...

I'm trying to keep the Gallery updated more often these days, so in keeping up with that pace I bring you tonight another vision of the Dark Millenium.

These two MiniMaserpieces were requested by a client to depict his Flesh Tearers Commander; quite an imposing and frightening battle-brother!
I'm always glad to take a stab at underrepresented Chapters, and the Flesh Tearers have somhing that is really attractie to illustrate. They're loyal to the Imperium, but their gene-seed mutation has made them so savage, so blood-thirsty that they almost look heretical. It's very interesting to think the Imperium suffers such terrible nightmares to exist if that means more worlds will be added to mankind's rule.

I'm particularly proud of the skin tones in this character's face, as well as the scar on the side of his mouth. The atmosphere in general is another thing I'm happy about; very brooding and obscure.

I hope you enjoy these two and let me know what you think as usual.

Nic.-

Damn, he's an ugly son of a bitch. Kind of like Nemeroth from Space Marine with his torn mouth - you can't tell if he's bloody smiling or not.

Huh, Tyberos in red. Wouldn't mind seeing recoloured in proper Carcharodons livery with appropriately pointy, skinned back teeth.

He really reminds me of Chapter Master Seth, with that mean-ass look and savage Double Chain Fist !

DUDE, I love the use of Tyberos... It's like the Flesh Tearers should have gotten that model. The studded armor and the modified chainfists, would have fit perfectly...

I think they look great, I really like this one. Also I think you should do more White Scars, I love how you represented the Khan as a mix of differant asian aspects instead of just Mongol. But anyway great work as usual :)

Love how he looks just a tatoo away from being a chaos marine. The two pronged chainfist is a nice touch as well. Just curious, do you have any more eldar in your qeue?

well done. it's a nice rendering =) the figure of chapter master Tyberos of the Space sharks (have no idea why they renamed them carcharodons) makes a splendied Flesh tearer commander ^^d
his face turned out really nice, well nicely done anyway. That Astartes look anything BUT nice XD

the model is actually the force commander of the Carcharodons off forge world. his chapter took part in the badab war.

at the very least, the weapons look similar

The scariest Space Marine since the Blood Angel story with Captain Leonatos.
And you pretty already wrote what I was going to say in your description :giggle:

Speaking of unrepresented chapter; Rainbow Warriors. I know I know, they get made fun of a lot because of their name...however I saw one of the original designs for them, they had an Aztec theme that was actually pretty cool, I still have the pic if you're interested ;)

Looks great, Nic! Seems like he used Tyberos the Red Wake as the base model for his Flesh Tearer. I personally love the ridiculousness of his power fist / twin chain fists. :)

Any word on the remaining primarchs? (Guilliman, Lorgar, Kurze?)

I can already tell what model he used for the Commander. Tyberos. Forge World did a good job with the design of that guy. He has to be one of my favourite Terminator Character models.

I agree with what you said about the skin tones and scar. I get a kind of "oh crap, he's looking at me, run!" feeling from this.
I love the red, murky tones. Your markers always come out so delightfully dark in comparision to mine.

Nice as always ^^ Also, I think that using the Tyberos model for a Flesh Tearer character fits perfectly, as both chapters are famed for their aggressivity.

Jonah Hex meets 40k ;)

I dig the fact that the client must've used the Forge World model for his comm',using the evil chainfist thing.I loved the idea when i first saw it in my newsletter,and its funny to see it drawn for once.

You look like you're back in the game mate,glad to see that
