The only grip I have is, I wish the Artist would have painted the Real "Talon of Horus" and not this gold claw! Where's the storm bolter?
Wasnt Abbadon the one who attached the storm bolter to it?

Looks like Sanguinus sword actually. But it obvously is just a good looking painting. Can you imagine one of the rembrancers taking a photo and going...

"Nice Horus, nice pose do a cool gesture with your hands."
"Lets stick out that chest some more emperor."
"For fuck sakes Sanguinus stop twitching and smile for the camera."

As for the photo. I agree none of those wounds would be done by the mace or the fist/claw. Unless somehow Horus stuck on of his Claw fingers in him. The wound looks like an exit wound. So kudos to anyone how said it wasn't clean. The metal opening is opening out. So I suspect he was stabbed from behind from the looks of the picture.

Serpion5 It`s what horus said to the emperor. If you haven`t got Collected Visions you should get it, because the story is all laid out. When the Emp finds Horus, Horus brags about killing Red bare handed, throttling the life from him because he refused to turn to chaos.

Baltar I don't remember the claim being that he was throttled bare-hand, but I did hear that he was strangled to death.

I find it odd that there seem to be no other signs of damage though.

To me, it likes a poke from a little finger. (connected to a lightning claw) But that`s just what I can see. HH Collected Visions has a great picture of this, and after staring at it for a while, this is all I can come up with. Horus DID claim to have strangled him barehanded, but who`s gonna believe that? Red`s neck looks fine to me. (other than it`s not breathing...)

A thrust would be a lot cleaner. Even if he turned the blade to release the suction, it wouldn't make tear in the armor like that.

A sword cut wouldn't have all those ends of the armor going out in every direction. They would all be facing the same way.

Now what it DOES look like is an round-ish object going through his back and into his chest. Maybe like...a lightning claw's finger? Additional holes can be covered by the leopard print skin or they did not puncture far enough to reach the other side.
ya i agree with the other members who think that the wound does not look like one made by a sword

i don't think there's any error, i think the wound looks like it was made by a lightning claw finger and apparently only one finger went deep enough to come out the other side
