Sanguinius and The Eternity Gate

This is one of my favourite drawings.

This is a drawing of the Primarch Sanguinius infront of The Eternity Gate. The Eternity Gate is a massive door constructed from adamantium with a gold outer layer. It is the door to the inner palace on Holy Terra (Earth).

This drawing is at the height of the Horus Heresy when the traitor legions were bearing down on the imperial palace. Things were getting desperate, the loyalist space marines had fallen back to the inner palace under the pure foracity and horror of the assault, their brothers had turned against them and they were being nuked from orbit. Bad day.

No one seemed willing to defend The Eternity gate.. no one except Sanguinius. Alone he held back legions of daemon and traitor alike giving The Emperor time to break through the shields surrounding Horus's Battle Barge, giving an oppurtunity for the loyalist to teleport aboard and take the fight to Horus.

 Thats pritty bad ass.

Imperial Navy Ship Classes

This is a great picture showing you the various space ships used by the Imperial Navy to blast the crap out of all the various alien scum. What i personally love about the picture is up the top it has the length of the ships and when you realise that the Retribution class battleship is 5km long it really starts to get your imagination going. I should also probably mention that the Imperial Navy has alot more ship classes then what is on this picture, this is because ships may be in service for several millenia at a time so new classes come out but the old ones still stay in service etc etc.

Here we have a picture of an Emperor Class Battleship, although it may look quite similiar to the Retribution  class the Emperor class has alot more squadrans of attack fighters however has less cannons etc whether the retribution class is more of a ship of the line and likes to get up beside the enemy and blast it with those broad side cannons you see. This pacticular Emperor Class is the Divine Right and is the flagship for Battlefleet Artemis. Coming up next will be an explanation of sectors, sub sectors and segmentums. I am almost positive this picture comes from one of the Battlefleet Gothic rulebooks.

Space Marines also have various ships but we'll deal with them in their own post!
