Warhammer 40k -Dark Heresy 17 - Book of Judgement by TheFirstAngel Warhammer 40k -Dark Heresy 17 - Book of Judgement by TheFirstAngel
In the Shrine of the Aquilla he faced his greatest test of faith standing alone against this demonic seemingly unstopable Chaos Defiler that was chasing him, a demonic warmachine of Khorne himself ever thirsting for blood.
a fellow Arbitrator once said "....It is our duty to fall into the pits, and there drag the unworthy before Judgement."
but hey first get a grip on it before you can drag it anywere?

painted for the Adeptus Arbites Codex - Book of Judgement - Cover
for Warhammer 40k RPG
Dark Heresy by Fantasyflight Games

enjoy :) - wait who just said Khorne Flakes o.O
ps: click the image for zoom to see details ^^

thats very close to the truth. when games workshop introduced judges, they were heavily inspired by judge dredd  wich reflects up to this day in the look and feel :)

Great art!

We could use more Arbites images in WH40K!

(of course, I may be slightly biased, as I am currently playing one in our campaign...)

Arbites FTW! Fuck Khorne-cake; That defiler's about to get wrecked - That mans faith alone is so strong that he's not gibbering like a child in the face of such a horror! Think about that! This is an incredibly awesome piece of art!

Judge Dredd versus the Defiler. One Grenade into the main battle gun. Kaboom. No more Defiler.

Watch or read Judge Dredd and you will see how badass he is. That bastard will definitely eat the Defiler. Also, defilers are amongst the worse melee walker in the game, weaker than Killa Kan, Wraithlord and Dreadnought. Even Sentinels can kill this thing.

This is tabletop. Not the crappy DoW games that were terrible when it came to the accurate portrayal of the tabletop units, lol.

 

Tabletop, Defilers are something to be feared. This Adeptus Arbite has no chance once it realizes he's there, and you should also know that Defilers are DAEMON MACHINES.

 

Avid tabletop player here.

has nothing to do with robocop but judge dread was a major influence when the Arbites were originally created :)

Great picture, we don't see enough of the Arbites. Although I'm rooting for the Defiler (spectacularly drawn btw), that combi-melta just might make all the difference.

Top notch!
