Tigers of a Different Stripe (Part I)
Artwork © copyright June 2012 by James Arnold. Used with permission
If you've been living under a rock (or been lost in the Warp) and are one of the three or four Space Marine players who hasn't heard about the Bolter and Chainsword's way-cool Marine color-scheme painting tool, go visit fast. With this free, easy-to-use online tool, you can quickly design color schemes for your own army. Stratokhan from the B&C was kind enough to make this image (below) for me:
This one below is from a fellow who calls himself Apemantus:
Next, check out this way-cool image, done by another artist (below):
A fellow named Niklas sent me the images below, which he fashioned in the style of the artwork you see in those cool "Index Astartes" articles in White Dwarf.
You'll notice that the two next versions don't conform to the painting guide I posted in Codex: Fighting Tigers of Veda, but they look good and that's all that really matters. The one on the left is by Jason Foley; the one on the right was created by one of the regulars of the Millenium Gate forum.
Raja Khandar Madu:
She's also inspired some very talented artists. First up is Scott Smith, a Golden Demon winner. Here's his version of her:
Scott has straightened Raja Khandar's hair and pulled it back into a no-nonsense, ready-for-battle ponytail. Instead of the "sabretooth" backpack, he's adorned her shoulder pad with a tiger head. But she still has those distinctive, steely eyes. Calm and confident, she is ready to face any foe of the Brahman, the Sleeping Emperor whose dreaming shapes the universe.
Scott's work has been featured in White Dwarf and he was kind enough to create a banner (below) for this site:
Scott also created some killer graphics as part of an earlier site re-design that (alas) didn't come to pass. Here are some examples:
The pencil drawing below right is from Greg Fougere.
If you look closely, you'll see that Greg has given Raja Khandar a shorter hairdo, re-done her shoulder pads, and added a few new details (like the Hindu-style dot on her forehead).
Greg has nicknamed her "The Little Red-haired Girl." Hmmm...given what Raja Khandar is capable of doing with those claws, maybe Charlie Brown had good reason to be nervous around her.
