Title: Page 170? Magnus red and marines red?


Michaelangelos - September 12, 2010 01:26 PM (GMT)
i was looking at horus heresy collected visions at i think page 170 it shows magnus with red skin.i thought ok that makes sense aka Magnus The Red .Also below him are 3 marines that are red skinned.

Can anyone help me with this

Hey there,
I haven't seen the picture myself, but if the warriors are with Magnus, then they will probably be the Rehati or Scarab Occult or whoever. They would probably colour their skin red if they would block one of their helmet sockets (see ATS).
That or they are TS who have red skin as a result of their geneseed.
Hopee this helps

Yes thank you

i mean i dont think that all of his legion has red skin

They did it as a homage to him, the gene-seed doesn't change their skin or anything and it certainly doesnt make them lose an eye :rolleyes: , it's an ace pictures, but would really ruin their depth perception and over all shooting ability, i suppose Thousand Sons are just that hard.

They don't need depth perception cos they use magic bullets...

A Thousand Sons mentions members of the Scarab Occult marking scars over one eye of their helmets to show their devition to their Primarch following Nicaea. The died skin and blinded eye adopted by the picture will be an extension of the same thing, and certainly the TS as a whole did not have red skin.

Collected visions is great and everything, but its far from canon.

They might as well have called it "collected artists interpretations"

Collected hallucinations? ;)

I agree that lots of the art's fantastic--but some of it doesn't merge with other pre-Heresy fluff.

As for that particular picture, perhaps this was a particularly die-hard group of veterans, or perhaps their appearance has been altered by sorcery?
