The Last Days Of Ector - (c) Games Workshop Ltd. by helgecbalzer The Last Days Of Ector - (c) Games Workshop Ltd. by helgecbalzer
This is the cover art of the novella "The Last Days Of Ector" by Guy Haley, published by the Black Library. I painted it during the christmas days, because it was very urgent, and I never painted Eldar or Space Marines before, but regardless of that tough situation I still had fun working on it ;)

You don't see the Eldar and Space Marine fighting side by side that much in most if not all the Warhammer 40k book series ;)

That's enough for me to look forward to read that novella as soon as it came out! For now, I'm currently reading the Path of the Eldar Omnibus from the very start!

Ignore those novels if you love Eldar. My Eldar fanboy-ism was completely crushed by the travesty known as Path of the Warrior. In this story, the main character kills 1 Ork, and that is about all the thing I can enjoy in him. Flat, unenjoyable characters and annoying fight scene that were poorly scripted. Pacing is horrid. You read the novel to know about the Eldar, that's all what I can say. But please, checking out Japanese culture and mythologies is way better.
