Horus Heresy: Horus Rising

BL Publishing came to me with a commission for a series of books detailing the Horus Heresy and wanted, as a wraparound cover, the Luna Wolves attacking a fortress. At the time I was really into Lord of the Rings films and so I wanted to capture the essence of the flashbacks to the 'Battle of Mount Doom'. Also, I wanted to produce a piece of artwork that would be as inspirational and definitive to others as John Sibbicks' 'Rogue Trader' cover was to me back in 1988.

Trivia: The distant mountains are referenced from holiday photos taken in Snowdonia.
