This week I am posting one of the pics I have been holding onto for quite some time. So I am a little excited about. Yes its the one posted above, and is one of my favorites. Overall most catachan artwork have been rather poor in my opinion, just getting the old 80's Rambo treatment. I really like this one.

Pics of the Week happen every Tuesday where I share from my Warhammer pic library. I collect these all the time from all over, and sharing them is just fun.

  1. Neat. You could base the obliterator conversion idea off some of these. Something like picture 10, but make the robes black.

  2. You could use the first as Catachan, but it comes from the book Flesh and Iron by Henry Zou, and there are no Catachans in that book, good thing too, he would have ruined them as well. I have read all 3 of his books and was disappointed each time. As someone that has been reading damn near everything from BL for 9 years I will not be picking up any other books he writes.

  3. I havent read the book, but the artworkis amazing, and does look like what I would expect catachans to look like.

    I wish GW would look at changing that model line with an updated look. Some of the non-cadian guardsmen are extremly outdated.

  4. Ya I agree, and personally that is all that I thought was amazing about his books, the cover art.

  5. I've loved each of Henry Zou's books. To each their own.

  6. Oh I agree that just because i did not like them does not mean that others can't. I just felt that had his books, well the first two been set on earth and not in the 40K universe they would have been better, and with Blood Gorgons, apart from the over use of the Thesaurus it seemed that he wrote the Chaos Marine story then discovered that he was short of his contracted length and so added all the info and scenes with the tribes people, that he never really revisits and to me ultimately gave nothing to the story. ....anyhoo that is just my opinion. I will add that when I read a review that does not make something out to be good, I will go read / watch whatever it is and decide for myself.
