Argel tal of the Gal Vorback Word bearers, blessed with demonic possession and the first to wear the crimson

Best known for his "humanity" (Seriously this guy was pretty noble for a Chaos Possessed marine) and his brohood with Kharn.

Better than the mental image I had conjured. This fits Argel perfectly.

THIS. THIS IS PERFECT.

Seriously, it's like you took what was in my head, the visuals in my mind's eye reading ADB's words, and put them to paper in a way I never could (I'm more a textiles and fabrics person myself). Do you work for GW? Art like this deserves wider recognition!

Great work! I love the background, not very visible but you can tell there's a massive battle going on. The daemon/marine is a very great work, too! I give this work 10/10

Perfect! Just perfect! I really love the helmet and how it's a perfect blend of Astartes armour and Chaos influence! Great work! 10 out of 10!

I'm in the middle of re-reading First Heretic, Argel Tal is one of my favorite characters, shame about Aquillon though.

No spoilers please, I'm only at Fulgrim (finished it a while ago but started reading Eisenhorn and Savage Scars to no burn myself out on Heresy stuff)
Also Word Bearers are badass.
Awesome picture.

now try a pic from the fight-scene of Corax vs Logar :evillaugh:

I kid really this piece is detailed and awesome enough to stand on it's own, you pretty much nailed the image of him when possessed totally.

Artwork so good it'll make you want to smack yo' mamma! Love the Book of Lorgar on his leg armor, and how his face still resembles a Mark IV helmet. My favorite book in the Heresy series so far. He's such a great character, his road to hell was literally paved with good intentions.
