Happy Thor's Day, fellow watchers and watcherettes!
Well, in keeping thruthful to my Upload!
frenzy this 2012, I bring you all yet another update to the Gallery.
After the lighter Supergirl
illustration I last submitted, we plunge again into the depths of the far future, where there is only War. And wherever there's war, there's chaos, and its servants. And there's also traitors and defectors... or double agents.
That ambiguous nature is what appealed me so much about tackling the Alpha Legion
. To be honest, I haven't yet read 'Legion' by Dan 'The Man' Abnett, but his take on what the Alpha Legion's motivations wre to join Chaos is as unique as this man's mind.
Thus, I tried to get that point accross in this piece: the legionnaire is strangely clean for a servant of Chaos as well as still sporting an Imperial item, in the form of the aquila decorated dagger on the belt. The most visible form of their allegiance to Chaos (?) is, evidently, the psyker at the Marine's back.
My favourite detail, though, has to be the decorated helmet in the form of his Primarch's face (see here: [link]
). It gives off an even colder aura to the Marine and an unscrutability from his motives that makes it very unnerving to look at.
So, I hope you enjoy this one as you did all of my submissions this January
See you all soon!
