Lantern Marine Veteran by DavidSondered Lantern Marine Veteran by DavidSondered
This is for a commission.
Lantern Marines are Dark Angels successors, Monastic but with a Tiki/Polynesian native origin that shows in their armour.
They have Lanterns hanging on their backpacks that can, if nothing else is available, be used as powerweapons.

This was all in the brief (though I shortened it down).

They also have sort of a metal-rock theme going on, which explains some flame-motiefs.

You'd have to check with the guy who made them (there should be a link)...

This is one of the most flattering renditions of Ta Moko I have ever seen in popular modern culture. As a Maori/Samoan not only did you convey our historical traditional tattoo respectfully but it is also a creative way of blending across cultures and generations. This work is not only cool but genuinely touching and encouraging to see...he mihi tautoko me aroha nui kia koe me to mahi.

Thank you, I did my best to be both respectful and make it fit within the imaginary universe it was designed for.

I unfortunately do not speak a single word of Maori, so I do not understand your last sentence, nor can I find a translation anywhere.

Thank you.
