Descriptions of Horus vs Images of him.

Maybe it is just me, but when reading HH books with the descriptions of Horus, I don't imagine him in the Terminator armour with no peripheral vision and huge quantities of plugs in his bald scalp.

I was just looking at the picture that is here : http://www.blacklibrary.com/Images/BL/blog/2010/07/Age2.jpg

And while it is a nice fearsome depiction, that is completely at odds with the charasmatic, standing on the bridge looking out into space, wounded unto death by the anethma character I have in my head.

Anyone else, or am I the only one ?

Maybe he just didn't need his peripheral vision because he would be able to sense or feel anyone sneaking up on him?
Or maybe he didn't need peripheral vision because he could stop nearly any attack that hit him. At that point, he wouldn't need peripheral vision to kick the crap out of his "sneaky" attacker.

Just sayin... peripheral vision seems kind of pointless when you gain the ability to shrug off tank rounds.

As for how Horus is depicted (noble and graceful vs. hateful and maniacal like in that piece of artwork), I think it exaggeratedly symbolizes his transformation.
