Horus Heresy: Flight of the Eisenstein

I was really looking forward to this cover, I'd wanted to do a proper Warhammer 40,000 'monster' for a long time and what better monster than a Daemon of Nurgle! The Imperial Fist lying on the steps was a direct reference to the marines on the 'Rogue Trader' cover. In the end, BL wanted the Nurgle head to look like the 'Realms of Chaos' cover by Les Edwards, I was only too happy to update it, it's a fantastic image to pay homage to.

Trivia: The far columns are taken from holiday photos of the ancient ruins in Rome, who says you can't mix business with pleasure?

I remember reading the book that it said that Garro dreamed of him, the Imperial Fists, Decius, and Hakur fighting a demon with a swarm of flies on the steps of an unknown wrold. Is this the reference to it?
