Welcome to Picture of the Day, where we display a sweet pic of something amazing that we’ve seen around the tubes, or took at an event!
If you click on the Picture of the Day label you’ll be able to scroll through some great Warhammer related images, all at once.
Today, like the year of my birth, my birthday falls on a Friday the 13th.
So to celebrate we’re taking a look a fire starter in the game of Warhammer 40k itself… Erebus (the man that started the galaxy burning).
Ever wonder where the name comes from? Well like most personalities of the Chaotic persuasion, their names are not too far from the mark. -Enjoy MBG
In Greek mythology, Erebus /ˈɛrəbəs/, also Erebos (Ancient Greek: Ἔρεβος, “deep darkness, shadow”), was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for instance, Hesiod’s Theogony identifies him as one of the first five beings in existence, born of Chaos.
In Greek literature the name Erebus is also used of a region of the Greek underworld where the dead pass immediately after dying, and is sometimes used interchangeably with Tartarus.
