(C) FFG & Games Workshop, do not use this art work under any circumstances.

I'm quite proud to finally manage to get a foot inside the Warhammer 40K franchise. This is the cover of Dark Heresy, Ascension RPG book.

It took quite a while to do this piece as I had to spend some time getting into the mindset of the Warhammer universe, and it was great fun to work on.

More info about it on FFG's site.

The Grimdark future, where humanity is only the good guy by virtue of everything else in the universe being worse.

DarK Heresy , like many tabletop games in the same setting, exemplifies the entire point of the Warhammer 40,000 universe: which is showing what happens when Humanity is forced to confront a hostile, insane and terrifying universe without benevolent guidance from above, or a magical fix-all solution to all their problems.

You are an agent of the Inquisition - how far are you willing to go to save Mankind?

I can only hope that the good guys win this conflict... By the good guys, I of course mean the Daemons.

Fantastic piece, my only suggestion would be to add a little more of the "grim" to the Grimdark ... this is a little too shiny in places and the demons a little too fantasy. But overall a great job.

I feel like that vindicator assassin has screwed up a bit if he is surrounded by bloodletters in a bottle neck.... Just kidding great art!

Bloodletters are hell on daemon wheels.
Fkin epic pic down to the last detail. THe Inquisitor and the lady on the left look fine, but can someone tell the Vindicare assassin where the enemy actually is?

That is fantastic. The best part is the Vindicare Assasin. (I have a soft spot for the Vindicare because they're actually humans who are not cannon fodder.)

No, he is just based off descriptions from my client, just to get the right kind of inquisitor :-)

I dare ask, whats your price for a commissioned work such as this?
Reply
:iconhenning:
henning Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Well, this one is a bit special, being made for a big IP and for my biggest client. My usual fee for a similar fee would end up somewhere between 1200 and 1600 EUR :)

My husband and I recently purchased this book, and I have to say your art vastly improved my mood towards spending money on a game I wasn't sure about (I love it now, lol). You did a wonderful job!
