Warhammer 40k space marines by old-stone-road Warhammer 40k space marines by old-stone-road
This is a group of Space Marines I did a few months ago. This image is also used in another profile that I have on D.A.. I am unable to delete my old profile.

Anyways this was a fun one to do. I am planning on doing several images in a series of characters - Terminator knights, Dreadnaughts, ect.

Space Marine 1: Seriously we should stop following her. Bros
Space Marine 2: Agreed!
Space Marine 3: What are we talking about again?

Hmm... Very nice! I'd say she is a member of the PDF for that chapter 's home world.

Its a good picture but Space marines are supposed to be at least two meters tall((seven or eight feet)).

I like it! Very... "Rogue Trader/1st edition" in style(which is my favorite art style!)

Keep it up!

I like the fact you included imperial guard into the picture, and the detail is really good! Keep up the good work!

What lol, is everybody sexist or something? she is not a space marine, most likely a highly ranked imperial guard official, the space marines arnt the only ones in the imperium of man you know :P

Great gob on the drawing man, Favorited :)

Very well drawn

Not sure if you know this but, there aren't female space marines. Those are the sisters of battle. Or is the girl a commissar or similar?
Spacer176 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Judging by the uniform i'd say she's an officer. Most likely part of the imperial navy and we rarely see those in the flesh.
Sunhoofd Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010
just one thing, where is the terminator ?

I think this one is my favorite even though it does have that damn beak head in the background.
I dunno why i don't like that space marine helmet so much but ....:anger: must destory all beak heads.....
Saber109 Featured By Owner May 14, 2010
u should really do a drawing of the emperors champ backed by either a close assault termy squad or a veteran close combat squad with power weapons....assaulting out of a land raider... that would be awesome... nice work... i really like the tones and shading

Just Prior to the heresy, I bet this could have been an imperial army recruitment picture.

Cos' let's be honest, if they had a pic of a space marine at real proportions it'd creep the hell out of normal people.

Haha, I could just see imperial citizens faces when they got told they'd never get to wear the badass power armour.

I really like this i love how you've done the shading and drawing and stuff. but just a question, Isn't space marines like 8 foot tall?
Death-Guard Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
awesome art, but kinda small for space marines arent they :\
Spartin-118 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2009
Nagash6 here is my idea...
looking at those symbols on the armour...looks like a made up maby they have a pact with some sort of group [like the space wolf guys have a pact with some navigatrs]. or it could even be a inquisitor i supose...i dont think gaurd but maby a sororita without her armour? idk but its not a space marine.
Spartin-118 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
nice man i love it.
i must admit i don't like the idea of a marine with all kinds of metal stuck to his nose, but i LOVE your other guys there SO AWESOME! i would like to see bigger shoulder pads but it dosent mater much. all in all its completely AWESOME!!!! sorry about all the criticism.
soeven001 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009
Good artesty man I like it. Just the chain nose piercing sux a bit why would a space marine get one of those?
Lord-Megatron Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2008
Nice, but the armor isnt nearly bulky enough (I.e you shouldnt be able to see most of his neck.) and the chest armor looks like it belongs to a Vindicare Assassin rather than a marine.

Still, very good drawing.
coribbanian Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2008
nice, but i thought space marines don't (or rather, can't -due to their geneseed percularity) have females in their ranks? maybe that girls' from the imperial guard, i suppose.
Nagash6 Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2008
It is ok, but what a woman doing amongst them?
WordBearer Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2008
Cool, some decent armor ideas there ( I like the guy on the left's biceps.) and the Imperial Guard/Navy uniform is cool (I'm totally stealing it...).

The Marine's proportions are way off though. This isn't a perfect guide by any means but take a look at this [link]
Nerub29 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2008
Marine proportions. The ultimate question.

Very good drawing, the slender marine looks better for this picture, in my opinion.
CrustyFish Featured By Owner May 26, 2008
Nice, love your style, and i love just that composition ;)

i just love that bascinet-style marine helmet. it looks so awesome.
Ryllbert Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2011
Bascinet? that's the "eagle"/"beak"-helmet, right?

If so, ye, that's the coolest helmet:)

Space marines on strike until everyone has these helmets!

...DA in it's finite wisdom won't let you delete an old account...They are afraid that if you /anyone becomes famous...they will lose proof that you were ever here..Therefore they cannot brag and use you as free advertising to draw more in...They named it "archival" purposes ..:laughing:..

Meanwhile...there are probably 3 full megasevers of abandoned and unwanted accounts just draining money and energy and contributing to the techno-mess of slowdown here at times
