A card illustration for Horus Heresy. My father in law modeled for it- no joke.

I think he is angry because he is misunderstood. Once you get through the minions, hardshell, thorn inards, and acid blood he is a nice guy. If you havn't posted some info on the cards, then you should. From this it looks like the card game from hell, and if you play it the towns people will put you on trial of being a witch. Fantasy art is so much better when it is evil.

your father in law eh?
Looks more like my mother inlaw. LOL :D

I dig the lil skull head cherubs, but the servo skulls arent nearly big enough (servo skulls are the reused skulls of the most devout imperial servants, given the honour of serving the emperor even after death) and they need thrusters and more arms imho.

Now, did your father-in-law model with the pygmy skeletons? ;)

the pygmy skeletons were in his lab . . . always cool reference there- he's a geneticist. Apparently he's begun a few classes with this picture as an introduction.
