My Kind Of Chaos by NicklausofKrieg My Kind Of Chaos by NicklausofKrieg
just some more concept art, this time of some chaos characters for a class project :iconrandomeye713: is doing

i really like these designs he thought up of 'cause it really has that modernized and distinct look i've always wanted to give chaos, so i quite enjoyed doing this request

i just hope he doesn't mind me using similar design elements in some future chaos drawings i have planned

The guy in the orange armor looks like a Zoican soldier from one of the gaunts Ghost's stories. Except the Zoicans had faces scrawled on their visors.

never really read any Gaunt's Ghosts to be honest, i've read some Ciaphas Cains and the Horus Heresy though.

i think my favorite is the Nurgle guys. they look a little scary as well. having an enemy that will shoot you with a sniper then beat you with a spiked stick? kinda scary

I think I killed the Khornate in Spec Ops: The Line!

They are all a superb modern interpretation of Chaos but I think my favourite is the Tzeentch cultist who, despite probably standing out from the crowd very clearly, evokes a very cool retro spy feel :D

yeah i've heard that a lot of crazy stuff goes down in that game :D

the Tzeentch guy i wanted to make him look like a G-man or a secret agent/classy hired gun for some illuminati sort of organization with all the back stage scheming for new world order

the Khorne guy was basically based off of all the movies stories and video games i've seen involving rogue military bodies composed of disgruntled war veterans/special forces

It sure does, emphasis on the crazy-the only game I've ever played that gave me shell-shock.....

He does look like he would fit in that Secret World MMORPG (the game of secret societies where everyone has a distinctive uniform >_<). Very suave and how could you not like the Luger?

Besides Spec Ops, Army of Two: 40th Day comes to mind when seeing this guy and the enemies in that were very Khornate in both appearance and attitude.

NicklausofKrieg Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012
exactly! that's exactly what i wanted to portray! people keep making them look like freaks and monsters that sometimes they just look unrealistic and impractical compared to the imperials they're supposed to go head to head with all the time

by adding a bit of normalcy i think i made them look like an adequate, professional and realistic fighting force rather than a bunch of shambling, spikey satanists

and that's probably why you can finally see chaos manipulating real people 'cause of this :D

with the fact of realism on this picture, it makes more gritty and brutal for me because i can see these people just killing on the streets :D

NicklausofKrieg Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
well actually his hazmat suit does the exact opposite it keeps his dirtiness fermenting inside of him and it pollutes the fresh air he breathes in it's also fire resistant to protect from cleansing flames and does an over all job at keeping cleansing materials from directly contacting him

yeah i thought the trio of lamps was quite a good way to put Nurgle's mark on him in a totally functional manner :D

Now I want to see a modern 40K action/spy movie. This is great though, really great. Like 'Why-am-I-not-watching-out-yet' great. I'll go fix that...

NicklausofKrieg Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012
that would be a pretty cool idea for a movie, 40k could really use some good conspiracy stories rather than the usual all our combat scenarios

thanks for the watch too :D

So we have:
Khorne - A bloodthirsty bomb defuser who grabbed a rifle.
Nurgle - Idiot chem-worker who was corrupted.
Slaanesh - A geisha that doesn't know when to stop.
Tzeetch - A guy who looks a bit like the Spy from Team Fortress. And f*ck knows what happened, that was Just as Planned.

All in all, decent work!

Khorne - he's not wearing a bombsuit he's just wearing average carapace armor i kinda wanted to make him look like the guys from Army Of Two [link] basically a bloody thirsty soldier
Nurgle - he wears that hazmat suit to keep clean/cleansing materials OUT and all his dirtiness IN it's basically the exact opposite of a hazmat suit, it even pollutes the clean air he breathes in
Slaanesh - that's just about right though she's not just a geisha, i'd imagine her being some sort of an undercover assassin or something
Tzeentch - he's more of an ambitious gun for hire employed by a tzeentch worshiping underground organization plotting for a new world order

i sometimes find myself frustrated that the budget and work of the newest WH40k fps was wasted on a game about the ultrasmurfs saving some generic planet from orks and then all of a sudden chaos, such a generic storyline makes it feel so unimportant and boring just like ultrasmurf movie

they should really make a game or movie about some more interesting aspects of 40k

Tzeentch guy worship his god through intellect and change. Slaanesh minion is Materialistic.
Nurgle should be a Zombies with Hazmat suit
Khorne followers pray through bloodshed

yeah i always felt that the design elements in warhammer 40k (especially when it comes to the forces of chaos) borrow far too much from warhammer fantasy, i mean i know they're going for a mix of fantasy and sci-fi but i think things would look pretty damn good if they'd give 40k it's own look

I know that, right? I'd really like to see some customizable cultists in the 40k. And it could also be a good idea for Warhammer fantasy. Too bad GW totally ignores customers'suggestions.

call me odd but i've always had the idea that a person who embraces filth and decay as extremely as he does would probably want to stay as far way from clean/cleansing materials as much as a clean person would want to stay away from toxic/dirty materials

So let's see....
One looks like from some Al Capone Mafia/gang....
The other looks from some Japanese Yakuza....
The third one looks like a renegade bomb suit disposal team....
The last one.... probably some damn special force gone mad.

You've done a fantastic job, thank you!!!
The Tzeentchian is classy as hell
the Slaanesh-Geisha is the perfect fusion of murder and pleasure
Yay! you gave the Nurgilist his rusty spike stick!
And the Khorner is one intimidating son of a bitch
