The XIth Primarch by saint-max The XIth Primarch by saint-max
The XIth Primarch

Number XI crashed into an ocean world, risking being drowned, he was saved by sea hunters and been raised by them. Living in a solidarity society of both humans and aliens, XI didnít take much time to become the king of hunters. Later XI was found by the God Emperor and accepted to serve the Imperium of Mankind but not for a long, when he was accused of heresy for supporting a Craftworld in a conflict long forgotten, he and his legion were cast out from the Imperium by his father the Emperor to be forgotten just like his brother the Second.

Now thousands of light years away from the Imperium, XI fights his way through with his legion allied with the Eldars.

This is my attempt to create a concept for one of the Unknown Primarchs from the universe of Warhammer 40k.

utterly love it! The little details like the Eldar rune on his armour are awesome. The back story you've created is really good and something that I've thought of as well, I love the idea of one of the Primarchs being brought up not to hate Xenos on principle. The colour scheme and theme of the armour is gorgeous and unique especially compared to the other primarchs

I'm speechless. Loving the idea of the concept and the perfect execution! It's really brilliant. Would love to see how the chapter looks.

Thanks a lot Kayzah. I am really glad that you liked the Primarch and the idea :D. I started on a drawing for this Primarch with his chapter, and will have to finish it before the end of the year, hmmmmm.

Indeed Imperium should've made allies out of Eldar (but we all know, that it would be too often seen in other fantasy universes scenario)

its becuase the world and story of warhammer 40k is supposed to be tragedian (with lots of emphasis on irony) so thats why they didnt ally with the eldar
