DeathWatchSpaceWolf-Kalmakk by DavidSondered DeathWatchSpaceWolf-Kalmakk by DavidSondered
Private commission.
The customer wanted to display his DeathWatch charakter, Kalmakk, in his full wargear.
This was fun to paint as it was a return to a familiar genre after a time of absence.

Fighting Tyranids can be hell...
A good power-/lightning-claw usually sorts most things though!

If you want to show this anywhere, pleasse ask first.
I usually do not mind but would like to get credited for my work and posting without asking will result in a cease and desist.

Deathwatch is an organization that take marines from every chapter, temporarily, to fight xenos. It is an inquisitorial organization, but contain spacemarines. Sort of the "best of the best of the best".

Ah. Thank you for clearing that up for me. And that is freaking cool.

I always wondered what the name of the black inquisitorial marines chapter was. And now i have found it. Thank you.

Its a bit of Photoshop, a bit of pen-on-paper drawing,  a bit of Painter, a bit of Aftereffects and a bit of Zbrush.

The Space Wolves harbor no love for the Inquisition, so the concept of one of them joining the long watch is great, not to mention he looks absolutely badass! Great work mate.

The perspective on the power claw's.. claws.. looks a little bit off somehow, and his head looks a slight bit low, smushed between his pauldrons - the latter isn't really an issue, of course, since this is one of the styles that Space Marines routinely displayed with. Two oddities that strike me is the redness of the power claw; is it actually supposed to be on fire or so? And also, the glowing eyes. The red power claw, the glowing eyes and the skull, combined with the head looking somewhat huddled (likely due to the pelt behind the head, now that I think of it) gives me the slight feeling that this is a space marine on the fast track to hell.

Which, considering that it's quite obviously a Space Wolf (or some associated chapter), is something I'm sure several officials within the Inquisition would agree on.

Big bonus points on actually making the power claw look like a power-claw; that is, a power-fist with claws on it, rather than just.. a fist with claws-of-power on it. A lot of people mess that up. Very, very nice.

I feel like I'm writing a review, but in all honesty, the work is *really* awesome. Cheers.

I agree with the perspective observation. The colors don't bother me at all, but the claw looks very stiff and almost its attached to the marine rather than being wielded. It almost looks like he trying to make a chu chu train motion with his arm, which will not help against tyranids at all. Also, unless that is a custom lightning claw, the typical lighting claw has a curve to it. Claws are meant to scrap and slice the enemy, not pierce it like a lance or sword.

I'll pitch in on this since it is indeed a custom blade I requested myself. It's designed to mirror the appearance of ancient Japanese blades (pre katana era). It's a relic lightning claw.
