Nightlords Chaos Space Marine Inspired Frag Grenade Concept
Keeping on a roll here – happy and excited to show another piece from the Chaos Space Marine Eternal Crusade Fan Art series. The images here are of a concept of a Chaos frag grenade. I have drawn on some inspiration from the Nightlords faction of chaos space marines. The colors are similar and there is a dense pattern of lightning streaks.
This process was a bit different but still in using Photoshop, my PC, pencil and paper, scanner, and a Wacom pen and tablet.
Again, this was started as a line sketch years ago, not very clean, I admit, then I finally moved it into a scanned image. Just the other day and finishing tonight, I have gotten the shaded layer and then the color overlay complete. I seem to prefer to do things this way right now and works well. I might use the Multiply layer settings or others. Usually, I would have done the grayscale shading with pencil, but I am working on getting better and more comfortable with it using digital methods.
In all, I am happy with the results. Thanks for keeping with me. Enjoy!
17 were made. One for each of the elite guard of the Nightlord champion Nurlic the Nightshade. Each imbued with the carrier’s own connection to the warp. Each were covered in the ornate and striking lightning workings reflective of their brothers’ legion. These group of fragmentation grenades were meant to be gifts for each of those guard. They were to use them in the rarest of occasions when they were in need of especially potent ordinance to inflict maximum carnage on their brothers loyal to the Golden Throne. Rumors abound of these never having been used and all being collected in one weapons cache on a particularly daring rogue trader’s vessel. Reports of it being seen in a forgotten sector of space surface from time to time in trader outposts. None know for sure. Until a year ago when a derelict ship was found floating into Imperium space and was quickly confiscated by the Black Ships. No one knows what has become of those artifacts since then.
Thank you all!
