Only War: Shield of Humanity by ukitakumuki Only War: Shield of Humanity by ukitakumuki
Games Workshop

This was a cover done about year ago for Fantasy Flight Games' Only War: Shield of Humanity www.fantasyflightgames.com/edg…

As always, big shout to Zoe Robinson and Andrew at FFG for being great producers! (Also this was based off a composition sketch by Andrew!)

A Ministorum Priest and a special IG detachment, on the move. With a nice red signal flare or two for good measure. Framed against a nuclear sun. Always a nuclear sun.

Did you do the art for the priest on the page for the Ministorum Priest class in the core book? Trying to find a clean image of that guy.

One of the best art of Imperial Guards in battle. The priest leading them in front of the baneblade makes this perfect.

The expression of the Guardsman in the bottom right corner with the visibly pitted helmet suggests that he had seen enough action that he lost the ability to give a single fuck. So much so that he's on the verge being able to repel away in single fuck he comes across.

why does a ministorum priest have the "I" symbol? anyways, as always badass prospective!
Reply
:iconluckmann:
Luckmann Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
Hah, at first when I saw it, I was about to say that hey, the "I" is ubiquitous throughout the Imperium, used in a wide variety of ways and contexts. The symbol of the Ecclesiarchy, for example, is an "I" with a skull surrounded by rays or ray-like sprockets.

But then I noticed that the priest doesn't just have an "I", what he has is quite clearly an INQUISITORIAL "I". Not only does he have the three stripes on it, but he even has the superimposed skull.

I also notice that the Inquisitorial "I" is on the book at the hip of the priest.

Likely a small but significant error by the artist.

Good catch.
