El, rogue trader is classified as 'flavour material', or as most call it a prototype.

The older Dreadnoughts always looked better then the 40,000 upgrades the older ones look more agile and realistic. Great art though man.

I've bought all 4 of the horus heresy books.
How come none of the dreadnoughts looked like the first edition rogue trader dreads?

Thanks. It's old school. I think it's a pre Horus Heresy design, so it might be unfamiliar.

btw, what weapon is that? a multimelta? cos i didn't think they used melta weapons in the horus heresy... of course i could easily be wrong

actually, one of my current jobs right now for HH are old school Salamander Terminators- so of course they have to have melta weapons:)

First thing that hit me with this piece was how good the colouring was.
They're used so well, in the shading and the blending.
The detail is also excellent.
Great work.

its pretty cool
my knowledge of the universe is rather limited
just what i saw of ~casus-solari 's collection (which he painted so well, its crazy)

and i just go to the midpoint of the game
i like that there is a story to it
but i want more CG movies like im accustomed from blizzard games

nice metal effect on the mech warriors skin
the background looks a little bland though. although there is nothing wrong with the actually drawign i think the use of colours on it make it look to flat

overall its a good piece

Yes, but if you are Warhammer fan this is actually 30k before the Horus Heresy. If you are not a fan, ignore the geek talk.
