Cover: Legion of One

Hello, All,

Sorry about the lack of posts, but sheer workload has meant that I've been unable to maintain the blog as much as I'd like. But, that'skind of a good thing, right?

Anyway, this is the latest cover for the Horus Heresy Audiobook "Garro: Legion of One" by James Swallow:

Cover Artwork for Garro: Legion of One.
But exactly WHO is that on the cover...?

Here's the blurb:

"Nathaniel Garro, loyalist Death Guard, and hero of the Eisenstein, has found a new calling in his service to the Emperor. Surrounded by a cloak of secrecy, Garro travels the galaxy in pursuit of his new goal. His quest will lead him to heart of the most destructive warzones, and reveal a secret that will change the course of the Horus Heresy itself..."

and here it is in the final design:

Yeah, Classy!

You can pre-order it here and here - tell 'em Neil sent you ;)

Also, Games Day has been and gone - and what a day it was, sketching and signing all day. It was a shame I couldn't come the day before to catch up with the authors, as they're a great bunch and good company. Ah well, that'll teach me to BREAK MY LEG!

Here's a few pics from the BL Art Seminar me and Jon Sullivan gave (thanks to all that came along) from Shane McElligots FB page:

"So, an Ork, A Space Marine
and an Eldar walk into a bar..."

Erm, stop looking at my plaster cast, Jon.

Anyways, a big thankyou to all that came along and made us feel welcome and appreciated. I'll be working on that "Music to Draw Space Marines By" album for next time ;)

Next up - magazine work and the Sarah Jane Adventures...!

Have you been sleeping rough mate?

Neil Roberts said...

That's called a sympathy beard. Whilst I had my cast on I didn't shave. I now hate beards.

Leigh G said...

What, you shave with your feet?

Neil Roberts said...

No, that'd be silly - we all know it's impossible to get a good close shave just using your feet.

Love the Garro cover. Do you know if it's going to be available as a poster?

Neil Roberts said...

Yo, Jonathan - not sure if it'll be a poster, AFAIK they haven't released any audiobook art in any other formats. Would make a great poster ;)

Craig said...

Awesome sauce Neil!

And that must be Qurze on the cover yes?
