Man, I love every pixel of it :)

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 8/6/2014 10:11

Cheers! Glad to have another Warhammer fan here on PJ. :)

Very cool. Makes me want to paint some minis.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 3/19/2014 04:01

Hrhr, awesome. I bet they looked terrific.

Thanks! :)

This one is really great. Make me remember of when I was a teenager, I used to paint Warhamer figures for my cousin and my bro.

Very nice job.

Awesome. I love the blue outline as well!

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 1/13/2014 14:49

Thank you soooo much for taking the time to comment, chap! I've been missing your presence and awsome pixels around here.

I'm really glad you like it. I always had to think of what you would say about dem spess mareehns while I was working on them, hehe. I wasn't sure about the blue outline at first to be honest... good that I decided to keep it. :)

If I do a dread, it should be in a dynamic pose... more like your brilliant one.

Awesome to hear from you again!

Greetings :P

Whoa! Hi Mandrill

I've been away from this site for a couple of months but thought I'd have a quick peek at what you have been up to, low and behold some fantastic 40k stuff, I love it and the blue outline really shows off the orange armour. So when we gonna see a whole Dreadnought?!

ps, great scout face as well btw

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 1/6/2014 14:36

Hrhr, thanks! :)

@ kuznetsowski

Glad you like it, cheers for that! :)

@ -ian-

Wait until I do the traitor ones, hrhr.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 1/5/2014 08:50


Thank you very much mate that means alot to me! Nope, no game behind these. They are just personal work for the sake of fun.

I tried ro keep the style even more cartoony than goodwin or blanche did. It was intented too like like a hard contrast to Smith or Kopinski for example. Far more suitable for a pixel-art game I guess. You can't beat Paul Bonner's style though... just brilliant stuff.

Yep, it looks pretty flat. I have no idea what to do about that. Very hard to get those flat surfaces look 3D with only a bunch of colours ;(. Hmm, darker shadows could do the trick...

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 1/5/2014 08:39

@ Zizka

Thank you. :)

He is not from an existing chapter. I made the scheme up to be freer in my interpretation.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 1/5/2014 08:35

@ ADrawingMan

Hrhr, cheers chap! :)

kuznetsowski (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 1/5/2014 08:27

Uff, I really like the shades on the scouts' faces...!! Excelent work...!

-ian- (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/5/2014 07:24

For the Emperor!

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 1/5/2014 06:12

Yay, more 40k stuff. And this is purely badass. A very interesting style for 40k, different from the usual style of John Blanche, Jes Goodwin, etc. Is this for some kind of mod or game? I would love to see a 40k game that could do justice to that universe.

My only critique is that the Dreadnoughts look quite flat compared to the nice Marine helmets.

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 1/5/2014 05:57

Looks great. Looks like Blood Angel faction (judging from the colors). 

I like the transition for the dreadnought, the face of the mortally wounded marine, hehe. 

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/5/2014 05:41

Waaaah! Awesomeness overload!
