|Here is the front of the banner, Millsy!|
I painted this banner to represent the banner of the 4th...what, I'm not sure - company? In 40k Chapters with their ten companies of one hundred marines each, you sort of imagine in your head that there might be one of these banner per company. In a Space Marine Legion in 30k, with upwards of ninety to one hundred thousand marines in a Legion, how many companies are there? How many banners? The 4th Chapter then...let's go with that.
|Naturally,the banner pole has skulls on it...in the case of the World Eaters, though, I thought that made sense...|
As I said in the original post, I improvised too much on this paint/decal job, and rather than appear imposing or intimidating, the banner just looks busy. The front of the banner is actually quite a large space. I would have done better in hindsight to slap a great big frigging Legion symbol on it. The would better suit the temperament of the World Eaters I think, and appear a bit more intimidating. But that can wait for another time. I'll do a better job for the Sons of Horus...
