Horus Heresy: Descent of Angels

This was a more pared down cover, less marines and an interior setting - this time a ransacked banqueting hall. I went as far as modelling debris, the rafters and cross-beams, but after I added the fog and glows and other EFX, it all got lost in the mayhem. The glow-globes were a nod of the hat to one of my favourite books as a teenager, Frank Herbert's 'Dune'.

People have told me they really like this cover, which is always good to hear, as I feel that making the extra effort always makes a difference.
