You seem to be thinking about Urrlak Urruk.

I would not have known this, but your post happened to make me interested enough to read up on these characters a bit more.

EDIT: As for what I'd like to see:
Proper and clear illustrations of Vulcan and the Lion. (none of this murky "could be him?")
Luther
EC officers like Vairosean and Kaesoron.
More of heresy era Kharn.
More on Daemon Primarchs

And to counter some here, I'd like for Blanche to ascend to immortality so that he can keep drawing/painting forever.
(even much of the other art is based on his designs, after all)

I'd love to see the storm on Monthax, Gaunt shouting orders, his face seen in the light of a lightning.
By the way, I've seen amazing drawing long time ago, just when I started discovering 40th millennium - black-and-white Space Marine on his knee, with chainsword in hand, praying. I think he was in a city, in the rain. His position was just like that of Blood Raven's commander in DoW II intro. Anyone got clue where could I find it?

Thanks man!

Great ideas everyone (snarkers included) - Almost all of the scenarios you've mentioned have caught my attention as well, when I read them.

There are so many things written about 40k that could never be done justice in the visual department - Like full-blown chaos spilling into the materium... I've heard so much about the notorious 'debaucheries' of The Emperor's children, but funnily it never goes into further detail, like it would with followers of the other 3 gods.

..and now I'm not sure if I want to see it written or drawn at all!

There is a good point there. Depicting certain things about Chaos is like illustrating Lovecaft's Cthulhu mythos...how could one ever really draw/paint a sight that would drive any witnesses insane? The closest one could do "realistically" is the sort of rabid sketches seen in Liber Chaotica, trying to portray something that should not be or even a sight completely contradicting physics.

And then there's the Emperor's Children "activities" as you mentioned...something GW's artwork/texts obviously will keep far away from, understandably. It would be pretty creepy if GW sought younger audiences while trying to outdo the internet in terms of the vile and perverse.

And that's what makes it so great for me. The endless possibilities, because there are no restraints in the 40k universe.

It's all told as a legend so - you can go to absolute extremes about everything.

The Imperial Palace (granted its the BIGGEST building of the Imperium of Mankind) IT ONLY COVERS ALL OF THE ASIAN CONTINENT

Or The Vaxhallian Genocides where The Purge, a band of CSM killed over 14.000.000.000 people... That's not millions, thats billions, guys - And they brush over it like it was nothing. At the same time the loss of a Space Marine chapter is almost incalculable. The irony is stunning, because it gives off the notion that a regular human life, 40.000 years in the future, is worth next to nothing and pretty much anything (from possession to alien invasions) can happen. All the unsung battles of The Imperial Guard always going first where the fighting is worst, pales in comparison to the tales of the Space Marines, even though the battles fought by the Adeptus Astartes are surgical strikes, not planetwide warfare, because you can only do so much with 1000 marines, however powerful they might be.

It's all so uncaring and massive that you just roll along with it.

3. Magnus in the Emperor's throne room after his havoc-wreaking in the Webway.

2. A split picture of the lives of Ollanius Pious, from Verdun to the Vengeful Spirit.

1. Lord Solar Macharius splitting the Iron Wall of Kallastin with a single bellowed command. I know it's a legend, but it's a fantastic image nonetheless.

I would also like to see more of the fight on Horus Battle Barge. The only text I remember from the death of Sanguinius was that he was "smothered" by the Talon. Not choked, but smothered. What?
At any rate, that whole sequence could be awesomely expressed.
Also anything with Titans in it. I get weak in the knees for walking robots.

You know what the chain of command is? It's the chain I go get and beat you with till you understand who's in rutting command here! -Jayne
