The Primarch of the Blood Angels Space Marine chapter. He was a most powerful individual. And favored second only to Horus by the Emperor. Warmaster Horus eventually slew Sanguinius.(After Sanguinius had fought and killed a Blood Thirster and being seriously injured in the process.)  From Warhammer 40,000.

"although he was bested by Horus, that during the duel, Sanguinius weakend Horus's Deamon Armour just enough for the Emperor to take advantage of a weak spot...."
But Horus cheated, it was actually impossible for Horus to kill Sanguinius in mortal, martial combat. So he cheated. He called upon the Chaos Gods to deliver him a slow foul death by using their psychic powers.
Once Sanguinius had fallen in agony then Horus took his chance.
Very nice picture. Im in the middle of converting a Sanguinius model at the moment. I have good ideas for him but he will have to have a sword, i cant convert his beloved spear...

Cool picture (of blatently the best primarch!). whoever said that sanguinius fought with a spear though is a fool.

Why isn`t he wearing the golden power armour ?

I know this picture has been up awhile but I just stumbled across it this morning. Outside of the being well informed on 40k this picture is simply astounding and I do prefer the b&w to a full color copy. There is always something classic about b&w and it just seems to fit the depiction of a Primarch quite well.

The Spear as Sanguinius's weapon is a total farce and strictly for the book. If you have ever seen the Horus Heresy art series the depictions of Sanguinius are with a sword. Also seeing as I have a limited edition print of the actual Horus Heresy concept art hanging on my wall signed by John Blanche. In which Sanguinius is wielding his great sword, which is an understatement because great doesn't cover its size heh. As for the weakening of Horus's armor as its been stated before, eh it may or may not have occured it has always been argued over. The primarily belief is that the Emperor was studying the warp and its energies at the Golden Palace and actually used warp energy to defeat Horus.

If anyone wants to protest my statement feel free to contact me at synthetik_ascent@hotmail.com I've been into 40k for going on 9 years and have tabled a Blood Angels army.

For the blood of sanguinius the blood angels shall never bow to any foe and shall battle to the end in the name of sanguinus the blood angels shall never die

His anatomy looks lopsided..

Other then that, however, it looks fine to me. 18

no power armor? WTF?

:-) Jason'Stogie' Stowe replies: "The Primarchs did not always wear power armor when not in battle. And Sanguinius is often portrayed sans armor."

I think this is a good picture except one thing. Sanguinius wields the Spear of Talesto! Not a sword. No offence, I just hate swords

:-) Jason'Stogie' Stowe replies: "Actually the only place the "Spear of Telesto" is mentioned is in the novels. All other fluff has him with a great flaming sword."
