Butcher of Khardov by velinov Butcher of Khardov by velinov
This is something really fresh from the lab. I was commissioned by Privateer Press to draw an illustration for their "The Warcaster Chronicles" series. Here is The Butcher of Khardov. Hope you like it...

Funny how everyone tries to copy warhammer with fat suits nowdays.

Really?  The man-o-war suit is only one of its kind in the setting and is made specifically for an elite infantry.  All the normal slobs get coats and a rifle and that's about it.

Wonderful job Velinov!! I enjoy all of your work a great amount, but it seems to me that you're stepping up your game with every single new piece!! Anyway, amazing piece! Don't mind whoever's saying it's racist :D Me ( Bulgarian ), being a Slav myself am absolutely not bothered by this painting. Great work!

I personally feel his face is too small for his head. Otherwise i love the colors and tense mood.

It is too small, as the character seems to include all negative stereotype of Slavs right from Heinrich Himmler's book.

Actually the butcher is a Khadoran Warcaster (A sort of Wizard General, Russian style).  They can mentally control giant steam powered automatons in battle as well as augment them through magic.  While at the same time being powerful warriors.


The is a psychotic man known to put whole towns to the blade after victory.

I actually play warmachine and I have to say I'm now really curious as to what his whole story is, beyond just the psychotic rage. Very nicely done all around. The Man O'war suits are exactly what I thought they would look like, powerful yet dinged and damaged. I wonder what a new suit looks like. However, my favorite part is the one soldier on the right holding the chain with an almost skeptical look of, "Yeah this won't hold him... and we're gonna die."

Thank you.
