The thing that manages to really strike me here is the symbol of Khorne on the shoulder guard and head of the two traitors at the bottom. Didn't the World Eaters not start worshiping the blood god until some point after Istvaan?

Other than that, looks very good slaine

Ahh but that doesn't mean the influence wasn't there. I debated putting it in but after months of fighting, the world eaters would have acquired quite a lot of blood and trophies something that whether they realized it or not would have garnered the notice of the skull throne, the same as Lucius, He didn't know it but at the time he was in Slaaneshs' thrall, whose to say that the flayed skin of a brother astartes would not have inspired the Mark of khorn for this soldier.

Bear in mind that there is a difference between being under a chaos gods thrall and wearing their mark. That the World Eaters might be acting in manner favoured by Khorne, or the Emperor's Children to Slaanesh, is not question to me.

Though if those very symbols had deeper roots within their respective legions, or were introduced in things like the lodges or by the Word Bearers, I could see that.

there was mention of the legion already starting to use and portray certain arcane symbols without knowing the actual meaning of them, like horus new throne room.

I'm with D about the Khorne symbols however that doesn't change the fact that the image is fucking AMAZING. Great work. Have some rep.

Fantastic work again Slaine. So much detail, love the Titan.
Thanks man, The Dies Irae deserved a starring role for this pic I think.

True! though there were world eaters on the Vengeful Spirit when the Primarchs met and if you remember the walls were adorned with banners and stuff bearing strange symbols, I always took that to mean they were chaos symbols, maybe one of the chav-ier world eaters nicked one and brought it back to his mates for a gander.

Thats the ticket, if nothing else there would have been some exposure to the symbol from that.

thanks man glad you like the pic, now to riposte, I don't see how the symbol being inspired is that much of a stretch, the precident is Garro dreaming of the Nurgle Symbol before the death guard even got to Istvaan.
