Default Pictures from 40k you miss to see

I bet we've all read some stumbled upon some truly imaginative situations or characters in 40k litterature - But there's only so much room for artwork for it all.

I you had the best 40k illustrators at your hand (Adrian Smith, Karl Kopinski, John Blanche, Clint Langley) what would you have them draw for you?

I have always been fascinated by xenos leaders. Seeing a solo piece on Urgok The Unstoppable (Ullanor) or The Beast (6th ed. - largest and most powerful ork ever) would be fantastic!

When reading some BL novels, I often think that a particular scene would make for an inspiring illustration, although I imagine this comes from the author's descriptive prose of that particular scene.

A few such ones that spring to mind are:

The Alpha Legion's recruitment of Xalmagundi in The Serpent Beneath.
The climax (where both are pulled from another) of the duel between Night Haunter and the Lion in Savage Weapons.
Angron and the World Eaters advancing on the surviving Raven Guard from Raven's Flight.

Other scenes which would be awesome to see, simply because of the sheer scope of the occurence would be:

The destruction of Monarchia from the perspective of the citizens of Khur.
The Council of Nikaea.
The Priest Uriah refusing the Emperor, and turning to willingly embrace the flames of the Last Church.

Fulgrim surrounded by the giant shards in the Reflection Crack'd just because it would be VERY weird, especially done by Blanche.

Have to agree with Uriah & The Emperor, but i'd like to see the Emp walking away before it gets burnt to the ground (Anyone can try and tackle this but i have very high expectations).

The Dropsite Massacre, where the Raven Guard and Salamanders march up to the Traitor Legions -- the point where they raise their gun, just before firing.

I would like to see what artists can come up with when they can basically do anything they want.

From iron, cometh strength. From strength, cometh will. From will, cometh faith. From faith, cometh honour. From honour, cometh iron. This is the Unbreakable Litany, and may it forever be so.
