XII Legion - Angron by Noldofinve XII Legion - Angron by Noldofinve
"The Emperor promised Angron a legion made in his image, limitless power, and life-times spent perfecting the Art of Conquest. But, to his surprise, Angron refused. He chose instead to die amongst his comrades while fighting his oppressors. Reluctantly, the Emperor returned to his flagship above.

Yet just as the battle was about to begin, the Emperor teleported Angron against his will back up to the fleet. He could only watch in anguish as those he regarded as his brothers and comrades were quickly annihilated." From: [link]

The main reference was Mr. Blanche's artwork. And.. I must admit I feel some sorry to Angron despite he is my most unfavourite primarch.

You drew him really well regardless (he happens to be my favourite primarch :3), I absolutely love the piece to bits.

Ah... calm Angron... Probably one of those moments when his army was arriving to some rebellious planet and he was smiling to himself, 'cause he know that a good battle (with a bit of Born Maim Kill) was awaiting him and his men...

The only thing that Roboute Guilliman (hate that guy) ever say right, was about Emperor: "The Emperor was a brilliant scientist, a powerful warrior, and great psyker, but he was a terrible father..." and that is the best thing we could say about him... How much could change if he would not favorite some of his sons (Horus, Rogal Dorn, Sanguinus, Leman Russ, Rawboat Girlyman) and care more about the others (Angron, Mortarion, Lorgar, Alpharius Omegon, Perturabo).

He could at least not place Horus as the leader - any supervisor who would just coordinate Legions would be enough - someone who would think which of the brothers should cooperate with each other, so conflicts between Primarchs would be avoided. Imagine cooperating Alpharius/Omegon with Perturabo, Corvus Corax with Conrad Curze/Night Haunter, or Corvus Corax with Alpharius/Omegon. Angron could have friendly rivalry with Leman Russ and Lion El'Jonson (as all 3 of them are more martial oriented). As both Perturabo and Ferrus Manus were interested in technology, they too could work well with each other.

Many other combinations would be quite good, instead of those relationship created during Great Crusade, when the only Brother that Curze could reach was Rogal Dorn, or for Alpharius that was friend of Horus only (as he don't spend much time with other Brothers) and most of the Primarchs he met during his visits on Holy Terra were Guilliman (which almost hated him and his tactics) and Dorn (which at least could praise Alpharius success, but right after that he make it worse, as he dislike tactics that use deceptions...).

The list of Emperor's mistakes as a father is long, one of the greatest was just teleporting Angron instead of giving him aid, or banning Sorcery and Psychic Powers - Empire would be much different if he would avoid such great mistakes.

just finished False Gods. i think you got the scars perfect. but for my money, his eyes need more insanity.

.... then again, perhaps this is a "peaceful" moment for angron, and you definitely have his terrifying smoldering look.
and uh, your art looks aged, classical, refined. and it looks like your tools would be hard to manipulate. im in awe. :)

... yeah, now that i look at it, it terrifies me. and he's not even a daemon or anything! he's just horrifying because i can see the seething mass of "ill tear out your heart, eat it, and not think twice" in his face. the "calmness" makes it more scary.

Sad realy, his strength is seconded to none but the Emperor but since his brain was picked when he was a Gladiator he ended up being a blood thirsty demon that only wanted war.

Hmm well done. Angron is my most favorite primarch. But I do feel sorry for him. I mean it's such a shame. He could have turned out much like Russ. They were both berserkers in their own right but both were also honorable in their own way. I think if the Emperor had simply helped Angron instead of making him watch as the people he loved were butchered. If that was the case i think Angron might have ripped Horus to shreds at the very mention of Heresy. But Regardless. Well done you have lot's of talent.

after when i read tales of heresy, i felt very sorry for him and i could imagine how painful it was to live his life, i can see why he was easy to manipulate by Horus to turn against the Emperor, if only the emperor had assisted Angron and his brethren of gladiators rather than kidnapping him.

Hm I think he is a bit too slender to be Angron, who was much wider than the other Primarchs in shoulder. The artwork is still great, and Noldofinve makes all primarchs's faces to look a bit alike, which is quite logical since they were all sons of the Emprah.
Personally he is my second favourite of the Traitors (after Kurze).

The Emperor (and the Chaos Gods) are so prone to making errors...
Why could he not helped Angron? Or rewarded Perturabo and Kurze more?
It was always Daddy's favourite Horus, Sanguinius, Dorn and Guilliman.

But his biggest mistake was disgracing Lorgar, banning Librarians and creating the Imperial Truth.
A wonder how the Imperium survived... no fanatical priests, no zealot marines, and no Librarians to watch out for daemons.

He should have put Lorgar at the head of the Ecclesiarchy, and made Kurze the head of the Inquistion. Oh sorry for ranting...

At first I didn't like Angron or the World Eaters, mostly because of their brutal tactics (if they even have any). But then I started playing Dawn of War: Winter Assault, and the power of the World Eaters came apparent to me as I got interested of them.

A great picture, by the way. Can really tell it's Angron.

its simply not him, its not angron, who even in pre-herecy times was nothing but a brutal killing machine, resembling some crazed demon more then a emperor's creation

he was just pure horror, the view of whose charge threw in panic even saul tarvitz himself

so while the face is well done, its just not angron.

But this "brute barbarian" also had a sense of honour. Hi was a child of the Emperor and if he would be just brute kill-machine the Emperor would not chose him to lead one of his Legions, I guess.

The Emperor was busy whacking off in the webway. He gave all his sons legions and some of them were rather insane or were twisted by the tasks set for them like the Iron Warriors. I think the Emperor wanted the galaxy period be it by the brutality of Angron, Konrad or Perturabo as long as they obeyed and conquered. They say he sanctioned everything the night haunter did.

I completely agree, the emperor was a fool with angron, he could save angron's comrads and he didn't, and i'm a khorne fanatic, so i am glad of the angron's decision. BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR!
