Throne Quaphsiel 7:33 – Blood Angels Leviathan Dreadnought

The inspiration for this piece came from Master of Mankind, an offhand comment by the Bringer of Sorrows to Arkan Land describes Baal’s culture resembling that of the Holy Roman Empire.

Drazhar, Master of Blades commission.

Drazhar The Living Blade. I approached this piece by mentally breaking it in half. The armoured plates were given clean, direct lines, building the luminescence to a mirrored sheen. Drahzar ascends his surroundings, untouched by the gore of the battlefield. The base is a counterpoint, with quick almost chaotic movements of the brush to build…
