A depiction of the 3rd war on the planent Armageddon. An Imperial hive world with atleast 100 billion inhabitants it was attacked by the largest Orc WAAAGH (army) ever assembled in the galaxy. This picture shows 2 Warlord Titans, some space marines and some Lemon Russ battle tanks. Unfortunantly i cant make out the chapter the marines come from and since over 20 chapters participated in that campaign it could be a little difficult. The most striking aspect of the picture are the titans ofcourse. Each titan belongs to a titan legion and each titan legion typically hails from its own forge world. It can take hundreds if not thousands of years to make a single titan and as such they represent a massive investment by The Imperium and many are considered holy relics. For lack of a better explanation, they litterally blow the shit outa anything that stands in their way.

  3. Those are Salamanders. That piece of artwork is the cover of Epic: Armageddon rulebook. Even on the smaller version it's obvious they're Salamanders due to the shoulder plate on the Marine farthest to the left showing the Chapter badge & the banner having flames on it.
