Its funny that the Legion of the Damned was a topic with a friend of mine just last night, as he is painting his marines as Legion of the Damned. So imagine my suprise when the Black Library released the artwork for a Rob Sanders novel to be released April 2012. The artwork here is amazing and is by Jon Sullivan. Enjoy.

from the Black Library
Following the trajectory of a blood-red comet, the berserk World Eaters blaze a path of destruction across the galaxy in its wake. The small cemetery world of Certus Minor appeals to the Space Marines of the Excoriators Chapter for protection, but the force dispatched to deal with this grim threat is far too small and their losses against the renegades are high. Just as all seems lost, salvation is borne out of legend itself as sinister spectral warriors descend upon this planet of the dead, and the enemies of the Imperium come face to face with those who have already travelled beyond the realm of the living...


  1. Yay! First comment!

  2. <- Get off this page Douche.

    The artwork looks awesome!
    Seems like an great novel.

  3. I don't like the LotD anymore. They were much better before their elites only 5th edition version. They were originally going to be my army of choice, but not anymore. I think the new models are awesome, but I think that they are killing some of the mystique with this book. I wish they'd just leave them alone.

  4. I think a book about the legion is a bit extreme - they've never been at the front, never acknowledged. they're just there to save the day when all seem's lost, then fade away. Maybe a book carrying several novella's about times that the legion has appeared to save the day, from the viewpoint of those they save, would fit the title, but to me this seems more Excoriators based than legion based.
