Redeemer of the Lost by MajesticChicken Redeemer of the Lost by MajesticChicken
Colored up Astorath the Grim, High Chaplain of the Blood Angels. His purpose is mainly to kill BAngels lost to the Black Rage that have not died by the end of the battle, otherwise he'll just take the heads of his enemies instead.

Original artist is Adrian Smith.

You always do a great job on these. While the original artwork is undoubtedly good, it looks a lot better after it's been colored like this.

So.  He has to kill his own brothers.  No wonder he's called "the Grim", that has to be the worst job to ever exist.

It's always bothered me that his armor is red even though he's a chaplain, who usually wear black. You make it look pretty sweet, though. =)
Reply
:iconmajesticchicken:
MajesticChicken Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010
Thanks! I suspect the reason why he eschews normal Chaplain armor for something more unique is because he brings his services to more than just the Blood Angels, he goes around to their successor chapters to kill their crazies as well.

I don't recall reading that anywhere, do you have source on it? I mean, I don't think that there's anything about Astorath the Grim and Successor Chapters anywhere that I know of, so if there really isn't (I had assumed that each Chapter would have their own equvalent), then it certainly is an interesting idea to explore....

Excellent, thank you! I hadn't even noticed that. In my customized Successor Chapter, I don't use any Chaplains because they are very few--this gives me a good excuse to field the guy! :woohoo:

:jawdrop:Truly awe-inspiring and magnificent to behold in the glory that is Astorath that is a figure both revered and loathed within the ranks of the Chapter due to the duty he performs: as the Redeemer of the Lost, he must seek out those battle-brothers completely claimed by the Black Rage, and end their suffering with a blow from his axe. As a result no battle-brother can feel entirely comfortable in his presence, as one day it might be their neck at the receiving end of his blade.

I love this art piece. What I love most is that Astorath's armor is fashioned to resemble that of a human musculature. Very impressive on behalf of Adrian Smith. And you continue to impress, bro. Very good job!
