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.

Absolutely phenomenal piece of artwork. The shoulder pads are so beautifully ornate, it's spectacular the amount of detail you've packed into this piece.

This is spectacular. Not only does #11 look AMAZING (should get him a name. Maybe something that's a combo of Eldar and Human? Like Var'Kas or Konnan'Shiire), but I love what you did with the backstory. It's about damn time someone with power stood for human-Eldar peace.
