The Warmaster is here! Praise Horus, he would set the galaxy alight! Lil’ Legend has done an outstanding job on this Horus Lupercal Lord of War. A must see!
He who would set the Galaxy alight.
Horus was the Primarch of the Luna Wolves Legion, later re-named the Sons of Horus in his honour, and greatest of his superhuman kind. A tactical genius and charismatic battle leader, Horus proved himself over the course of the Great Crusade as a warlord second only to the Emperor whom he served and called father. So it was that when the Emperor stood apart from the burden of command of the Great crusade, it was Horus that he named Warmaster in his stead. But ambition and pride festered within the Warmaster’s heart and at Davin he fell, and the lies and corruption of the Warp infected his soul.
The aim with this miniature was to stress the malevolence of the Warmaster. I wanted to push the contrast in the face and the under lighting to show the darker side of Horus’ fall.
