Warhammer 40 000 Madonna by Noldofinve Warhammer 40 000 Madonna by Noldofinve
Hi everybody! Guess you missed Warhammer fanart. I'm quite busy with Dominance War contest at the time present but hope to make you glad before the New Year with some new pieces. Until then.. thank you very much for all your comments. I'm really happy that you all are here with me.

This speedpainting took me about an hour. It's quite funny but the idea came during a sleep. And the main source of inspiration is a song "Gaunt" by HMKids (there are such cool guys from Russia who write songs about Warhammer. As for me those songs are very "Warhammerish").

Cheers!

Ноги растут от старой-старой задумки арта на манер мадонн с дитятком от художников Возрождения, только в реалиях Вархаммера, и более свежего впечатления от "Полета Ворона" и слов одного из героев, Марка Валерия, командиру гарнизона Рэйвенгардов Брэну: "Кто рожает детей, который становятся вашими новобранцами? Не Астартес." Получилась... что-то вроде маленькой незримой святой, матери-защитницы Астартес, о которой не особо-то и помнят, но которая всегда рядом.
Топлива доставили и две песни от HMKids: "Gaunt" и "Ave Emperor".

Заинтриговали. Качаю Кидсов, охота послушать вархаммер-метал)) Правда, тут же задумался: зачем Мадонне вселенной Вархаммера прятать лицо под броней?...

И как вам кидсы?

Ммм... наверно, потому что это жестокая вселенная Вархаммера, где вооружен каждый?

Кидсы?... мм - на уровне, хоть и не фонтанного качества (перфекционизм меня погубит :) ), немного удивила "каша" в сведении женского вокала. А вот музыку ребята пишут очень располагающую, так что Ваховский пафос оказывается вполне оправдан :) Слушать буду, поднимать настроение. По звучанию напомнило мелодичные вещи Battlelore.

Мне при просмотре рисунка вспомнились командиры, воюющие с непокрытой головой, а тут вдруг - глухой шлем... Впрочем, мое мнение здесь чисто интуитивно.

A very nice peice indeed, definitely a :+fav: from me.

And a song entitled "Gaunt" eh? I shall have to look this band up, as a Guard player who has a Tanith 1st and Only army lead by Ibram Gaunt himself, it sounds like the sort of song I want to have playing, during what gaming sessions I manage to get in, especially with him in leadership! :D

Were you successful in finding songs by this band?

Not yet, this is due to the fact I have not had time to look for them, what with being the season of goodwill and all that, plus I've been busy with a number of projects which are in the pipe line for 2011. :)
