  1. That one in the middle is fantastic. There is something fairly unsettling about it...

  2. Yes, it's horrific, isn't it. Like a grotesque Ministorum priest.

  5. The first image is beautiful. Everything from the halo playing over the figure's head to the comforting manner in which it holds the child really speaks volumes. This is fucking lush. Awesome find man.

  6. Yeah, I like the deep eye sockets in all the other figures: it's like an astropath undergoing the soul-binding ceremony, his eyeless peers watching on as the Emperor imparts his wisdom in the fledgling psyker.
