Ildi the Scout by TD-Vice Ildi the Scout by TD-Vice
A concept sketch of my and :iconwalkingmaelstrom:'s character from the story, Chaos Scout Ildi. He's a pure Alpha Legion Astartes, meaning that he's not a convert from a loyalist or other renegade chapter, but initiated directly into Alpha Legion, before going full Slaanesh and joining Torturer's warband.

He's modeled to have a russian OMON/spetsnaz feel, which is a deviation from the traditional concept, and I feel, a very lucky one. Ildi's a sniper, and uses an unknown to the Imperial forces Dragon Pattern sniper rifle.

For a Chaos Marine, Ildi's rather "clean", being an Alpha Legion neophyte, and has quite an unusual personal outlook on his role and faith. Basically, he's an overtly optimistic Chaos Marine - he manages to observe all the horror that he and his enemies do without much groveling, and thinks it's all neccessary and for the better, believing that true freedom is unattainable without wading through some guts and putting others through hell.
Ildi' s the kind of a bright-eyed fanatic that convinced himseld that he's doing the right thing and finds joy of life in doing it. Considers Razorwire his brother and Torturer a messianic figure that would lead them and others to a better world.

Overall, a "nice" guy among the bunch. The kind that DOES save little girls and damsels in distress - but only if they're witches and stuff.

What kind of soldier stands his rifle on its muzzle?

Ah question answered. And a very satisfactory answer.

So, what can I say? Hrm, I agree with the crits that have been levelled at it, mostly. It's a breath of fresh air to find a Chaos follower who is optimistic, almost na´ve, in all the grimdark and not just all "I must kill shit or the Gods will not be happeh!". Because most of Torturer's band don't strike me as overly happy people (Zekkel notwithstanding, but he's possessed).

Though, I've got to ask: how many implants left until he's a fullyfledged Astartes? And when (and if that happens, as Malexis is not the most skilled of apothecaries ;) ) that happens, will he get a full suit of power armour? Maybe he'll prefer to run around as a scout after all that time. What do I know? Always fun speculating. Let's hope he's spared the more quirky ideas that pop into Malexis' head. He seems a nice boy. :meow:

Well, most of Torturer's band isn't emo either, they're more like, cynical? And Ildi here is too young and naive to get cynicism. But the primary idea here is that unlike most of the others from the warband who are converted loyalists and having a lots of darker experience with the Imperium which leads to their more twisted outlooks, Ildi is a pure Chaos Marine, that's been indoctrinated since birth, and so he has a whole different mindset, more idealistic so to say.

Implants? Not much. Probably he'd be just a tactical marine or indeed, remain a scout for some longer time)
