Presenting: Black Crusade by DavidSondered Presenting: Black Crusade by DavidSondered
[link]

"The intoxicating lure of Chaos leads untold millions down the path of corruption, and the noblest of intentions offers little protection against its dark influence. A soldier’s bloodlust, a politician's ambition, a lover’s desire, and even a mother’s whispered prayer over her feverish child – they are all the playthings of the Dark Gods. Why resist? Wealth, power, and happiness await those who serve the Ruinous Powers, and the only price is your humanity.

Black Crusade is a remarkable standalone RPG that offers players an entirely new perspective on the conflict between the Imperium of Man and the forces of Chaos. This groundbreaking concept delivers the unprecedented opportunity to play as a Disciple of the Dark Gods, whether as a Chaos Space Marine or a human Servant of Chaos.

Swear allegiance to your dark masters, and reap the rewards of their favor! The Black Crusade core rulebook contains everything you need to start your adventure in the Warhammer 40,000 universe."

Great job. Is that a Necron scarab of some sort?

It's sad how much the Imperium could learn from Xenos technology, yet they try to avoid it as much as possible. Aside from a few radical elements of the Mechanicum, there is no more progress and learning. I really hope the Emperor psychically bitch-slaps some sense into a few techpriests, or all the existing technology is going to die of old age, and humanity will be left helpless.

Fantastic job!

A fallen techmarine from Krieg? I wonder why the possibility never occurred to me? :D

great job on the grime on the servo arm. As well as the directional lighting on the cloak and chaos star pendants.

Not sure its from Krieg, I just followed the brief and it said to use such a rebreather-mask.

I have yet to read the Word Bearers novells, the only one I read is First Heretic...
I just painted what the brief said.

What kind of careers will be in this book?

DavidSondered Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I have no idea. I only paint for the books so I am usually just as surprised as anyone else when I read the books.
Though I know that they are removing ranks, because that is something they mentioned on their website in the news section.

Cheers by the way :D

Wow, i'm looking forward to all the chaos art in this book:). this heretechpriest reminds me of a character in the word bearers book series.

Why do we never see Hereteks ever use this Necron Tech they love to study and steal so much? :D

Also, I really can't wait for BC. I play DH all the time and it's some of the best RPing I've had.

Actually I don' play the game, got no time, but I read every ingle contributors copy I get.

I like telling stories through Art. Thats what I try to do, so everytime I get a brief, I try to flesh it out with a little story to help me make it better.


Some of my stuff is really just trying to tell a story, like the Ahadi image, or the Ork Freebooter and the Orc killing the night goblin...
