The Scythes of the Emperor, New Artwork

During my time away sailing and in general new work the Scythes of the Emperor have been granted new artwork. Is there a possibility of some time in the Emperor’s light? Who knows, for now I’m enjoying, in unreasonably fanboy fashion, this attention!

The majority of the art is by Jon Sullivan for Black LIbrary’s Space Marine Battles art book, Visions of War.

The Terminator piece is by WannaTryMe1138 on Deviant Art.

In addition to all this, Sotha is made mention in the Horus Heresy novels quite extensively – The Unremembered Empire

The Emperor’s Scythes have yet to appear in many Black Library stories, but that will be remedied soon. In the meantime, if you want some insight into some of the origins of this mysterious chapter, you may find some clues in the recent Horus Heresy novel.

You can read Orphans of the Kraken, which includes Forgemaster Sebastion (the author’s literal nod to The Scythes.com!)
