See, I knew there was a reason we keep Messor around. tongue.png

 

Was I the only one who got the memo about how purrty he is?!


" They made you to be untouched by God or mortal. As I cannot kill you, so I curse you, not with death but with life.

I curse you - with the pain of ten thousand days in the Dark Place, with the life's blood of a mage's sacrifice, with Death's authority held in my hands.

I curse you, and I strike your name from history, stripped of arrogance and pride, empty of the self you once knew, gutted of all you are. I take your name and all you have won by the strength of your hand. I curse you for eternity, to find only darkness where once you knew your own face.

And I dub you the Ragged Man."

Dunno if it's any good to you...



Just a quick mock up done in Paint so feel free to play with it if it doesn't suit?

The head doesn't look too menacing, but that could probably be adjusted.

Yeah, you're not wrong mate. Trouble is it's a human head so how do you make a silhouette of that more scary? Was going to add 'big, sharp, pointy teeth' but figured that's getting a bit complex for a simple shoulder badge outline. Bigger versions (like Chapter banner, etc) would presumably be a lot more scary.

Anywhoo, it's there to play with if LM wants it.

SCL i do appreciate the effort, but i laughed so hard when i saw it. i am sorry.  it looked more like a pet than a menace.  maybe something more tribal?

laugh.png No worries, it was about 5 mins of work (or mucking about instead of working) and I'm certainly no artist. [shrug]

 

That said, it does show that it is worth thinking about how you'd get a simple, identifiable and menacing outline of a Manticore though. Especially one that you can actually paint on a shoulder pad 6mm across.

What if you just went with the scorpion tail? It's simple and direct, and you don't have to bother with there being an issue with the rest of the scorpion or the non-threatening Manticore silhouette.

For a chapter called the Manticores I'd go with just the tail, or a claw like the Brazen Talons have, or maybe a mouth like the World Eaters and Flesh Eaters. Trying to get the whole Manticore in there will get busy.

The Manticore could make good chapter emblem, creatively you could sculpt lion heads and scorpion tails onto veterans for some great looking relic/artificer armour.

Some small commission work could be looked into, i had visions of open faced half helm in the style of a lions mane and scorpion tail mouldings on various weapons and so on.

 

My avatar is my Executioners veteran, Sgt Grimm.

i now have a direction for this.  a recent idea that i realized worked better when integrated here. so the Manticores will become a tryannid fighting chapter after a battle with said xenos. and they will have a chapter barque/star fort fortress monastery.

Wait really? thats lame

 
The 40k gets stagnant right around the time the game is actually set and by stagnant I mean "standing so still statues start to look like amateurs".

I don't know if it's 40K's fault that the Tau didn't exist until 2001 and had to be written into the game to explain where this brand new empire came from and had never been heard of until then. msn-wink.gif

That's actually kind of the exact opposite thing of stagnation. 3rd Edition made Dark Eldar and Tau appear out of thin air, heh.

Marneus Calgar is referred to as "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible. If the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?
