HEY!

 

Hey! I’m IHF, a freelance digital artist with a history of designing new units for use in FW’s Heresy setting – more recently I’ve been doing commissioned digital art in several styles set in the 30/40k Universe. You can find me on Twitter below, and I’ve even got a small (& slightly neglected) blog categorising some of my more polished 30k unit concepts:

Edit: also, for anyone who's a member of a 40k (or AoS/ Specialist Games) dedicated discord who thinks the members would be interested in my art, feel free to send me an invite - I'd love to expand my repertoire/ client base!

 

THE THREAD:

 

Now I’m getting relatively consistent 30k / 40k based commissions, I thought it was about time I made a thread to share them on the forum, as a lot of the stuff I’m painting doesn’t really fall under the purview of my existing topics. This is where I’ll share & categorise artwork, and hopefully as I work on more personal art (that’s forum-relevant) I can do some WIP breakdowns here to help keep me motivated.

 

INDEX:

 

I’ll be linking posts from the thread by category, so these’ll probably get spoiler-tagged eventually just for ease of use

 

 

Iconography:

Forum rules don't allow for me to post my price list, but for any of y'all interested, here's an external link - just PM me for details.

Anyway, thanks for looking!

That titan/mechanicus logo is quite awesome and grimdark to the max.

First up, thought I'd share all the stylised iconography pieces I've done - very obviously inspired by the artwork from the FW Horus Heresy books:

 

Lightning Bearers / Harbingers Icon:

Commissioned by Bluntblade for the Brotherhood of the Lost AU 30k project, check out their B&C thread here: http://www.bolterand...the-harbingers/

Halcyon Wardens Icon:

Another one commissioned for the BotL, Simison commissioned this one & here's his thread for the Wardens: http://www.bolterand...alcyon-wardens/

Tidebreakers Icon:

Vakrah Jal Icon:

After consulting the forum on a number of designs, this was my attempt at visualising what the Chapter of Consecrated Iron might use as their icon.

Clan Brannsar Stylised Symbol:

My first attempt at painting this style, this was a fun experiment with a more intricate interpretation of my homebrew Clan's icon

Thanks! It's a stylised piece based off the symbol for my homebrew Iron Hands' Clan Brannsar (which also managed to get a FW bundle named after it), whose symbol is the standard cog  with two chains running across it, as here.

It's been a while since I made this, so I've got a not-inconsiderable backlog of artwork to post, which I'll hopefully be doing over the next few days & weeks - to start off, I've been doing an ongoing series of commissions for the Brotherhood of the Lost project, consisting of lineart armour designs for Praetors from each of the Legions:

Excellent artwork.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Okay, here's the next lot, showcasing some slightly more varied iconography work I've done:

 

The Grave Stalkers:

Another BotL Legion icon, I had a lot of fun on the lightning/ energy effect on this one - here's their background thread again: http://www.bolterand...grave-stalkers/

House Hartwick:

This heraldry set was commissioned for Danny Cyanide's knight house, you can find their thread here: http://www.bolterand...perial-knights/

Grey Talons:

This icon was commissioned by Sete for his Grey Talons Chapter, here's their Index Astartes thread: http://www.bolterand...on-wyrmslayers/

Here's the final lot for now - these are all vehicle design commissions (if any of y'all know me it's probably for my 30k vehicle design stuff), and while this thread won't feature my own designs, as I'll be setting up a new thread over here for that purpose pretty soon, any commissioned stuff is fair game.

 

Scions Hospitalier Abyssal Submarine:

This vehicle design (and the battle scene to showcase it) was a commission for the Abyssal Submarine, a Legion-exclusive vehicle for the BotL's Scions Hospitalier: http://www.bolterand...ns-hospitalier/

Tidebreakers Grav-Carrier:

This piece was a commission for Brother Tholath's Tidebreakers Legion, from the War of Light 30k AU project: http://www.bolterand...rs#entry5274112

Tidebreakers Bomber Concept:

Another design for Brother Tholath's Tidebreakers, this is a design for a Legion-specific bomber craft

Contemptor Jump-Pack Variant:

This design was commissioned for the Warmaster's Triumvirate 30k AU project, only a few months before the Blood Angels' Contemptor Incaendius was previewed!

Deimos-Pattern Vendetta Gunship:

Also for the Warmaster's Triumvirate, the brief for this was pretty much re-imagining the Vendetta as a Legion gunship:

Thanks folks! Honestly it's nice to just put this all in one place, has really made me realise how much stuff I've done in the past 1/2 year and the progress I've made in that time

The Star Guardians:

This piece was commissioned for a homebrew Legion from the Legion Reborn project: http://www.bolterand...ternate-heresy/
