The Emperor’s Might by John Blanche
Forged by forgotten science and driven by their eternal duty, the superhuman Space Marines are mankind’s foremost defence against a dark and brooding universe. Honed by years of the most rigorous training and equipped with the finest weapons and armour, the Adeptus Astartes hold back the darkness, protecting the Imperium from the alien, the witch and the traitor. Packed with previously unseen illustrations as well as a host of classic images chosen by Games Workshop’s Art Director John Blanche, this full-colour artbook provides an unrivalled look at the fighting forces of the Imperium.
From stylised cartooning through to some very Frank Frazetta-inspired pieces, this collection of Warhammer 40k artwork is a sure bet for any fan of the Imperium.
With over a hundred images spanning battles, posing warriors and some beautiful concept art, this collection is a bit of a mixed bag. Some images appear to have been taken right from the fan-submissions inbox, while others have that professional appeal that will leave you wanting to tear the pages from the book and frame them.
The second half of the book is full of one-page hero-shots, depicting characters and classes that I’m sure are immediately recognisable to the Warhammer connoisseur but leave me feeling a little uneasy about the artwork.
Nevertheless, if you are looking for a new coffee-table book and are a fan of the Warhammer 40k book, then ‘The Emperor’s Might’ is probably what you’re looking for.
