LAST STAND by kingmong LAST STAND by kingmong
HAIL BRETHENS,

This is my last cover for the "Damnation Crusades" series. The final stand of the Black Templar Gerhadt and all hell must break loose.

It's a dream come true to be able to do something this scene, after watching all those amazing art from GamesWorkshop. I always wanted to do a cover like this and I'm very thankful for the opportunity given.

Hail the Brethrens from IFS, for allowing me the luxury to make this happen. Under their watchful eye, I have accomplished.

Hail Boom Studios, for giving me the opprotunity to bath blood into the cover.

Hail GW, for all the Inspiration!

The Emperor Protects,
Mong:)

Black Templars are a strong contender for my favourite Space marine Chapter.

In the heart of the Holy See
In the home of Christianity
The seat of power is in danger

There's a foe of a thousand swords
They've been abandoned by their lords
Their fall from grace will pave their path, to damnation

They're the 189
In the service of Heaven
They're protecting the holy line
It was 1527
Gave their lives on the steps to Heaven
Thy will be done!

For the grace, for the might of our Lord
For the home of the holy
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Gave their lives so boldly

For the grace, for the might of our Lord
In the name of his glory
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Come and tell their story again

Under guard of 42
Along a secret avenue
Castel Sant'Angelo is waiting

They're the guards of the Holy See
They're the guards of Christianity
Their path to history is paved with salvation

They're the 189
In the service of Heaven
They're protecting the holy line
It was 1527
Gave their lives on the steps to Heaven
Thy will be done!

For the grace, for the might of our Lord
For the home of the holy
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Gave their lives so boldly

For the grace, for the might of our Lord
In the name of His glory
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Come and tell their story again

Dying for salvation with dedication
No capitulation, annihilation
Papal commendation, reincarnation
Heaven is your destination
[x2]

In the name of God

For the grace, for the might of our Lord
For the home of the holy
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Gave their lives so boldly

For the grace, for the might of our Lord
In the name of His glory
For the faith, for the way of the sword
Come and tell their story
Gave their lives so boldly
Come and tell the Swiss Guards' story again

This is perfect in so many ways! You've really captured the feel of "line in the sand" battles, the armour is cracked and dented and the banner is held aloft! Well done!
