I was just gonna ask about commission work but I found it on your blog...
nice work man!
Awesome work. How long does it take you to do something like this?
I think I may hit you up for some work very soon.
Sorry, I've been busy.
Here's a version of the piece fully inked the old fashioned way with brush and crowquill. I have a colour version in the works (several in fact), but I'm not happy with the results yet and I have more immediate and pressing work to attend to.
(And just in case the image above doesn't work, there's a high res version here on my DA account: cronevald.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3cpzts )
@BrotharTearer: Yes, but not very much. Blink and you'd miss it. I did a handful of pages in final issue, namely Tankred's fight with the daemon prince, and I redrew a few backpacks and shoulder pads on other pages that GW was unhappy with. Now Blood & Thunder, that's a whole different story. I did most of that series and had a lot of fun drawing the Orkses.
@schoon: What you seen in the pencils and inks is 99% traditional. I tweaked the contrast on the pencils for clarity and there's the smallest sliver on the left of the inks that was done in Painter as the muzzle flash was too big for the page. The piece was done on good old fashioned Strathmore bristol with 2H to H leads and inked with a Windsor s7 #2 and crowquills with Speedball Super Black.
@Brother Adonai: Email recieved and reply sent. Hopefully you weren't too upset with my response. I don't actually take 40k commissions for copyright reasons. I do get to do work for GW licensees from time to time and I don't want to do anything that might get in the way of that. Kenshin's an old friend and I owed him a piece.
And thanks all for the compliments. Hopefully you like the inks.
I am the GM of this Kill-Team actually. :)

Yea, Yngvar refuses to use a jump pack since hes a Space Wolf, and Thor tends to favor melee since he always finds himself up front.
My players all have models for their characters that I sent to Cronevald for the picture. If you look closely at what the shape in the rear is, you should be able to guess what the ground is.
Can't wait for the line-art to be done!
Hey, I have a Dark Angel Librarian Calibos in my group too. Ah, the default random name tables don't have enough entries.
I also have a Dark Angel librarian named Calabos in my group.
Love the picture, can't wait to see the finished line art!
Very awesome pic!
A drop pod and the crater made by it's landing?
