Adeptus Arbite (Art Monday)

 This one was done back 1996 as a submission for a 40k fanzine. It went unpublished, primarily due to that zine closing up abruptly (a bit more on this next week).  

"Get up citizen!"

This one is somewhat small. I like all of the hive/post-industrial Gothic stuff happening in the background more than the figure in the foreground. If I had the opportunity to redo this I would probably put a lot more detail on the Arbite. Maybe also add a servo skull to accompany him or something (Cyber mastiffs were not a thing yet). Anyway, when I did this there was very little reference art. A sketch from around White Dwarf 130 (?) by Jes Goodwin and the miniatures that came for Confrontation and the squad that was released in the early months of Warhammer 40,000 2nd edition, and that was pretty much it.
