Celebrating 30 Years of Space Marines!

Can you believe Games Workshop's Space Marines are 30 this year?! From their beginning way back in the Rouge Trader days to their current form its been a long and glorious journey. They have come to epitomise the dark and war torn universe of Warhammer 40,000, as well as becoming somewhat of an icon for Games Workshop itself (a proud Space Marine statue stood in front of Games Workshop HQ in Nottingham for many years until it was recently replaced by a Stormcast Eternal).
The look and feel of what we now think of as the Space Marine was crafted over the decades by some truly amazing artists. John Blanche, Adrian Smith and Mark Gibbons are just some of the awesome talent that Games Workshop worked with to realise these protectors of humanity.

So to celebrate Games Workshop has released a limited editionreimagining of the very first Space Marine kit released (RTB01).
Its a beautiful model and numbers will be extremely limited so jump on it! The model will be available form the 16th to the 17th of April.


To celebrate here at The-GamesWorkshop-GP we've decided to collect a sample of just some of our favourite Space Marine images form our galleries to showcase some of the amazing artists here on deviantART.

Check out the gallery below to see some of our favourites and of course let us know some of yours! Are there any particular images you feel capture the essence of the Space Marines? What's your favourite chapter? Talk anything Space Marine you want!

Does anyone know the name of the artist that is doing all the 40k codex covers at the moment?  Do they have a presence on DA?

zahnib Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Kai Lim has done a fair amount of the recent cover art,  Anna Steinbauer has also done at least three current codex covers from memory. Both are contributors to our galleries.
Hope that helps!
