Castigator Chaplain Karakalla by tacticangel Castigator Chaplain Karakalla by tacticangel
27.NOV.15: Re-scanned for a higher resolution. Enjoy!

This is another Castigator. Ok. I like these guys. This one I shall name Karakalla, a more evil looking spelling of Caracalla, who was not exactly a great emperor. Kind of a jerk... killing his brother and all.

As long as he doesn't use a lot of forced labor to build really oppulant baths I think we'll call it square haha. On a more serious note he looks incredibly menacing.

I think that was Nero, and it safe to say the only baths this guy takes are in blood.

Caracalla was famous for the extremely expensive baths and being an all around rotten guy to everybody. Nero was the insane Julio-Claudian (really redundant right there haha) guy who supposedly let half of Rome burn down so he could xpand his palace, trampled his mother to death in a carpet, etc. Yep, he looks pretty nasty. But all the Chaplains look disturbing. This one just moreso.

Poor Julio-Claudians though. Augustus said it best himself. The son of a king will be a pervert or a tyrant, and his son will be both. Poor Augustus, though is deviant heirs did make him look all the more brilliant since not even their misguided hands could undo what he made Rome.

Yeah, that's what happens when you engage in massive amounts of inbreeding.

Sinister. Funny that in Wh40k, Space marines like this guy are considered 'the good guys,' whereas, in anything else they'd be villains.

I thought the whole idea of Warhammer 40,000 is that there is no good guy, just different shades of misery and death.

That's true. Just different levels of evil. Then again, the Tau don't seem so evil.

If you ever have thought about Tau's one-ness, you'd find that it is kind of at odds with their militant nature. They're like Ghandi in really cheap Gundams and altruism isn't found at the end of a gun. They are the embodiment of that tyranny of the majority that start with everything good for you, until they take away all of your rights. They're kind of like 'progressives' in power armor. Tau may not be Chaos, but they are certainly more evil than Eldar or the Imperium as a whole.

Hmmm... You make an interesting point. My friends and I often muse at the principle of Tau communism, yet it really isn't far from the reality of the Tau empire. How long until their society becomes tyrannical and fascist?

I like your monochrome rendering- suits him very well.
I kinda prefer this one to Innocent too, he looks more violent :)

Awesome smoke effect. I wish I could do that. You really set the mood well with the collor palette you use.
