Wh40K: Chaos Decimator by StugMeister Wh40K: Chaos Decimator by StugMeister
7 hours in PS CS1.

This started off as a speed-paint that quickly snowballed into a fully finished pic. I'm happy with the fluidity of the brush strokes but I can't seem to get a good balance between sharp details and fluid imagery.

Overall I'm pretty chuffed though! :)

that's one big tank but how does the main gun turn around? :P The tank is more vunerable from it's back or sides

StugMeister Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It doesn't - it's basically a massive assault gun, much like the German StuGs of WW2.

Oh, and it's got some heavy bolter turrets for side/rear defence. :)

A Baneblade sized StuG ... nice idea.

And worth to be build/kitbashed.

I would, but i'm playing loyal SM. So it would also be the imperial variant.

I think a StuG IV, a Jagdpanzer or an SU 122 plus Baneblade-Bitz plus some tank-bitz should do it.

Thanks. I thought I had finished the pic, but it was looking very bare - so I started adding what you'd expect to see in a normal street.

I had to add the Leman Russes and CSMs in there to get the sense of scale.

Hmmm... I've never seen or heard of a Chaos Decimator before. Any links on it?
Reply
:iconstugmeister:
StugMeister Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
There aren't any links or pics available as it's not a unit available in 40K. I did this picture for an unofficial supplement being developed for Epic called Black Crusade - the Decimator is a super-heavy tank for the Black Legion forces in the same vain as a Shadowsword or Baneblade for the IG.

So I see. No wonder I've never even caught a whiff of it before. Guess I should keep a lookout for that supplement to know more, eh?
