The XII Primarch by saint-max The XII Primarch by saint-max
Angron the Red Angel, the XII son of the Emperor of Mankind, Primarch of the World Eater chaos space marine legion, Demon Prince of Khorne.

Greetings all, I know it been some time since I posted the first sketch of Angron, but I got really busy with the book fair for the past 2 weeks or so.
As promised, Angron is stepping on the ruined bodies of the dead Ultramarines. ;)
Again I feel its more epic to have the Chaos Primarchs painted before their Demon Prince state, so that is the first goal i had in mind while sketching this piece.
I went with a less complicated armor design, I wanted to give him something more practical that would give him a free space to move.

Hope you like it,

C&c are more than welcome :D

The only primarch who failed-failed-failed to capture his birth-planet and eventually became an even bigger failure then he already was before!

Somebody please tell me thats not a human torso on his left pauldron.

anyways, awesome work, sir. i like how you made it feel a bit painterly when you zoom in on the details. the flame sticking to the armor is a nice touch evocative of Angron's seething and burning anger. I like the dead smurfs on the ground, too. :)

Hahaha yeah, thought that would be a normal sight when it comes to the World Eater :D
Actually I asked for fans to vote on whom would they like to see being crushed by Angron, and the majority voted for the smurfs hahahah, no wonder :P

Never ones for subtlety.

 Angron is perhaps the only Primarch who didn't look much different after becoming a Daemon Prince, just add bat-wings and that's him.

Personally, I like the dual chain-axe Angron the best, but that's just me. Still some amazing art, though. Would love to see Magnus and Sanguinius, or Ferrus Manus since nobody ever asks about him lol

Almost got wasted at the hands of Guilliman : P

Also this is the most menacing depiction of any WH40k character I have ever seen! Simply brilliant!
