>Custodes looking like obese ogres

I swear Neil Roberts' art is getting worse, Custodes are supposed to have a more lithe design, not these abominations,,,,,

>> No.24191117

For reference

>> No.24191136

And whats wrong with ogres OP?

>> No.24191148

I dont get why this is the art they choose to go with. It not only is unable to convey atmosphere even with all that gloom, it also has NO character at all.

>> No.24191167

tyranids already are Ogres

Yeah also he makes gold acid yellow like it's actually tin colored with these

>> No.24191227

it does look pretty grandiose, but the bad CGI look it has (I don't even know how much is painted and how much is 3D) cheapens it down something fierce and makes it look stiff and cold.

You know, regal ogres that form civilized empires and wear full plate would be pretty cool.

The word "ogre" has been said like 5 times, and not one person has mentioned Shrek.

The bolter lances look fucking retarded. At least Grey Knights dont stick their firearms on the very end of a long fucking pole and make them useless in close quarters combat. True Grit.

How dare you hate machine halberds.

They just need to hire whoever drew this for Relic

why do I get the feeling that he's showing the other custodian all the fucks he gives

>> No.24191476

They are Heavy Bolters I think. They point them down like Phalanx's and shoot, before using them like Halberds.

Could they be "modern" Custodes? All other pictures are from Golden Crusade. We'll see when they arrive in the Horus Heresy 30k rulebooks and get models.

Look at all the roman architecture, definetly not 40k, plus modern custodes wear black cloths not red.

Besides, that image is way too bright and prosperous to be in 40k.

>> No.24191599

nobody did since it's NOT A DRAWING
also I'm pretty sure it's basically a re-hashing of that Iron Warriors pic.

That's a stupid design for a glorified meat-shield.

>> No.24191718

Holy Shit

A place in 40k that actually looks like it would be nice to live in?!?!

>> No.24191727

Well, good thing the custodes aren't supposed to be meatshields, they're supposed to be super-mobile and versatile soldiers trained to operate in a palace that spans a whole continent with huge rooms and very intricate architecture.

Gotta laugh in order to cry. Can't let people be jaded to the pain.

Since it's Custodes. I'm pretty sure thats Terra.
Any better believe the nobles are gonna make Terra look nice.

>> No.24191769

Indeed, they aren't, since they're not supposed to stand in front of the emperor and take shots for him, they're supposed to go out and kill the guys that are currently located in the room ten hundred kilometers away from his.

The best way to protect something is cover it with guns and sharp objects.

They don't talk about the nice stuff because nobody goes into 40k to find nice, they want grim.

>> No.24191812

>since they're not supposed to stand in front of the emperor and take shots for him

But they are, that's really all they're good for, or not seeing how the Emperor turned out.

>> No.24191844

>Implying Neil Robert's art was ever good

>> No.24191854

He turned out like this because they weren't trying to do that, because they weren't supposed to.

They're only meatshields insofar as a soldier fighting abroad is his country's meatshield.

>> No.24191897

You dumbass its the Horus Heresy. EVERYTHING was more Roman and bright and propserous. And besides that, you honestly believe that in a galaxy of 1 million human worlds, not ONE would be nice to live on? Even though some are outright said to be so prosperous that slaaneshi cults form on them just because the people have lives so good?

In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, where is happy people sitting on their porches drinking tea and watching the sun set.

Its actually the Imperial Palace under construction, in what was once the Himalayas.
In another few thousand years, when it is covered in yards of soot and neither the sky nor earth is visible, it will look appropriately grimdark

And then you realize that just a mile lower is millions of writhing hive scum toiling to give them that halfway decent city.

Is that the Cobra Hover-Base from the G.I. Joe cartoon?

It doesn't look like a nice place at all, it looks cold as fuck. I'd rather be underground in the warmth of the bolter ammo forge.

>> No.24192188

Well, think of it this way-
if any enemies make it into the throne room, the custodes have fucked up.

I like the pretty colours
its a nice change from the boring normal black of 40k
I really like how cool the castle looks.
