He's...magnificent!!! But now I want you to draw a Pre-Witch King Malekith. Seriously there are no pictures of him before he's burned and I'm quite curious as to what he looked like since he was said to be so handsome. But like I said, this picture is gorgeous!!! Only thing I don't like is that I think you made the hilt of his sword a little too big...
Actually, there is at least one picture of a pre-flames Malekith. It's on the cover of the book by the same name, written by Gav Thorpe. I recomend it; it's good and makes me hate the foul traitor even more! Death to the Witch-King of the Druchii! Long live the Phoenix Kings, Chosen of Asuryan!
Oh you and me both. Hell, I've tracked the decline of the Asur and you know what I found? If Malekith and Morathi are ever killed, the Asur will cease to be a dying race. My theory is that Malekith's betrayal was so hideous and his crime of stepping into the sacred flame so blasphemous, that the very blessings of the gods were revoked from the High Elves! That's why they went into decline; under Asuryan's orders, without the blessing of Isha, not as many elven children are born. So the moment the Witch King is slain, the Asur have hope of regaining the favour of the king of the gods and him allowing the other gods to once again extend their blessings to the High Elves.
Incidently, Malekith has to be slain by a male mage. There's a prophecy. But I don't think we need to worry on that part. After all, a certain twin brother has already kicked his ass so hard he had to flee into the realm of Chaos once
Well actually the Prophecy says something about the first born son of a noble house will come into power, and lead an army of terrible beasts, wielding great dark magic. I think in truth the prophecy is describing Malekith himself, that he will be his own undoing in the end. And Morathi the way I see her brought low is magic is used against her and takes away her everlasting youth and beauty and she is then thrown into the portal into the Daemon filled Chaos realms forever. And Teclis I think is the second born isn't he? I will admit I am somewhat of a fan of Malekith and Malus Darkblade, I'm a bad girl I know...XP But it's kind of a love to hate thing really. Malekith destroyed everything his father worked for in a fraction of the time it took his father to build it all up.
I obviously don't like all the evil races in warhammer, but there's three which I utterly despise: The Beastmen, the Skaven and the Dark Elves. Chaos is evil, sure, but even they aren't as dickish about it as the Druchii!
You know what though? Being thrown into the realms of chaos wouldn't be so back for Morathi, given that she's the chosen of Slanesh! I think it'd be far better if the Elven gods got ahold of her *evil grin* I'm sure they'd have a LOT to say. Possibly involving burning in Asuryan's fire for all eternity until every evil act she has committed is burned away, leaving nothing but a withered old hag behind.
Malekith... Once he draws on too much power and imolates himself in an arcane explosion at the height of a battle to try and take Ulthuan (turst me, that's how it'd go down), I hope his spirit sticks around. There's a fellow by the name of Snori Whitebeard whom I hear doesn't take kindly to oathbreakers.</i> After he's done... Well, Malekith wanted to walk into the flames? Well there he shall stay, beside his mother. A fitting end, I think.
Yeah, that really irked me when he swore, BY SNORRI'S DEATHBED, that he would honor the promises he made to him. and looky here, he's attacking the Dwarves, taking them as slaves and everything else... It would be a fitting end for both of them. I was thinking Aenarion comes and punishes Morathi for a bit as well as his son. Would be appropriate. I have this theory that Morathi had something to do with Astarielle's death, but she didn't make sure that the children were dead.
Sounds good to me! She was ceraintly pissed enough when they chose Bel-Shanaar as Aenarion's successor to the Phoenix Crown. Hell, she was one step short of screaming, "CURSES!"
That'd be a cool scene. Brought in chains before the judgement of the gods, who should she see at Asuryan's right hand but her own husband, glaring at her accusingly, with eyes of cold fire. "Why, Morathi? Were you tainted from the moment I knew you? Was this all out of some perverse sense of loyalty? Or just a mad lust for power? Were you just evil all along, a fruit fair-seeming to the eye, but rotten to the core within?"
Meanwhile, his son meets a short, stocky and shadowy figure... "Tell me lad... Do you not remember the words of an old, dying friend? Do you not remember the oath you swore? And do you not remember..." the figure stepped forward, a beard whiter than the snow of mountain peaks tucked into its belt, a mighty axe of runed gomril in its hands and a voice harder and more unforgiving than the very stone of the mountains, "That there is nothing so foul in the world as an oathbreaker."
Not that Games Workshop would ever do that, but BY GOD, that'd be epic!
