Mars will be ours by Noldofinve Mars will be ours by Noldofinve
... The Emperor's gaze turned to a red star - Mars...

"I stood on the tallest peak of the Oympus Mons and watched as the Emperor set foot on Martian soil, the first Terran to do so in five thousand years... I remember it well, the Emperor kneeling before the Fabricator General. As they exchanged greetings, I recognised a kindred spirit in the Emperor... A union of Terra and Mars, the head of the Emperor's eagle gaining a twin in his heraldry" (from G. McNeill "The Kaban Project").

The sword design was taken from magnificent Dan Scott's art "The Emperor's Wisdom", the uniform is based on ceremonial uniforms of kings and later emperor's and uniforms of Napoleon's army officers. And one of my main inspirators - music: H. Zimmer's "Gladiator", two songs of "Within Temptation" - "Towards the End" and "The Truth Beneath the Rose" (from the very first listening these songs have been associating with Horus Heresy in my mind) and soundtracks of "Dawn of War 1 and 2".

I want to say thank you all of you, guys, who come here, watch, comment and share opinions and arts with me. It's really nice that you are. :)

WOW! I've never considered the Emperor without armor before, he still looks incredibly powerful and strong in that meagre outfit.

I thought there are many arts of the Emperor in armour but no pictures of him without his armour. May be in an uniform or unofficial clothes. This is very interesting theme for me. And there is a large range for imagination.
