The Six Hundred and Sixty Sixth by Luches The Six Hundred and Sixty Sixth by Luches
~Nothing shall evade our cleansing fire,
not Daemon or Spawn or Renegade.
Fore we are Man's Divine Blade!~

I had always wanted to try a painting on the mighty Space marines of the Warhammer 40k universe since I was first introduce to them when I started work in IFS. How else but to start with the mightiest amongst them, the Grey Knights.

I had the most fun during the research and studies of the chapter, and it really lifted my mood during the the entire period.

Hope I did them justice, no pun intended :p

P.S Forgot to add, 666 is the Chapter number of the Grey Knights for those who don't know :p Forgot to mention it, half assuming everyone is into 40k here :p

No it's not.

The original Warhammer literally refer to the warhammer used by the First Emperor of men in the Warhammer Fantasy.

Holy frik, that guy is a Juggernaut. I mean, just look at him! He's carrying that huge amount of armor and it's almost nothing to him! And that Star Wars rip-off.. it's just cool.
