It's an Audio Drama that will be released in October.

Censure by Nick Kyme – In the depths of Calth's arcology network, the Underworld War has raged for years. Aeonid Thiel, previously an honoured sergeant of the Ultramarines, once again finds himself in trouble - pitted against the daemonic forces of the Word Bearers, he has no choice but to venture back to the ravaged surface and brave the deadly solar flares that have scoured all life from this world. With a lowly Imperial Army trooper as his only companion, it falls to him to drive the maniacal Dark Apostle Kurtha Sedd and his warband from the overrun XIII Legion stronghold.

That is one big ass guardsman accompanying him.

Edit to ask a question... is that supposed to be blood on his helm or the mark of honor?

The red helmet was once a sign of censure but now its a mark of honour.

Normal people compared to marines are noted to come up to their chests, looks to be about right in this picture.

Personally I rather like this one, there is a sense of bleakness from the fog and the demeanour you get between the two of them offers a nice contrast. Thiel feels like he is moving with a sense of purpose while the trooper, not so much.

Loving the distinct lack of action all over the image, if only because when compared to the story its going to tell the cover art betrays nothing of the story.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

The Marine is human sized. He should be towering over the guardsman.

Astartes hands have typically been depicted as being able to completely envelop a skull, whereas his look human sized.

This is how they should appear in comparison to humans:

Pretty sure there's room for variation in artistic depiction.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

Plus, if you noted this, the gaurdsman is standing further back from the marine. So perspective has a hand in that.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Am I the only one that would like to see a dramatic action-less piece of artwork on a codex? Would make a nice change from the regular 'ehrmagerrd layzerz pew pew!'
