Traitor Marine

I thought I'd try my hand at drawing a Space Marine... but then I thought, nah, let's go for a Traitor Marine instead.

Even after much deliberation, I was unable to decide exactly which legion (or chapter) he should be from. As the drawing evolved further I started to go with a slight Word Bearers theme, but nothing too obvious. There are one or two hints at it about the picture.
What I wanted to capture most about the character was that he'd been around (and exposed to the ruinous powers of the Warp) for a bloody long time.

Additional inspiration (mainly for the leg) came from looking at this website:

Imperial Official

High time for another update!
This one has been in the works for a while: I spent several days on the sketch, after which the sketch just sat there for a few weeks, and last weekend I finally managed to paint it.

As the title suggests, he's an imperial official, enforcing the God Emperor's will in the grim dark future of the 41st millennium.
He still needs a name and purpose, but I imagine him to be a tithe collector or something of that sort.

Any suggestions and/or comments are very welcome.
