When ever doing something, you should consider how stupid it is on a scale from "not stupid" to "encounter an astartes champion of the dark gods in close combat"...

I know, but it would be nice to have an unaltered human mortal best a few Astartes.

As a follower of Chaos, it always makes me happy to see pictures like this. I always see it from their point of view.

A great Chaos Daemon who's slaughtered more men than there is a population on Earth now, and a un-armoured girl (?) with a single chainsword charging at me with the same devotion he once felt to the corpse god. He would laugh.

"Ignorance isn't Heroism.

Pride isn't Power.

Faith isn't Strength.

If you are so eager, I will lay your pathetic flesh next to your brethren below you myself!"

Great picture.

I've said it once, I'll say it again, nothing is more awesome than a human warrior facing down unbeatable odds for the emperor and the civilization he built. The lighting here is incredible and it feels intense,the way a last stand should, cheers mate.

And if he's in a Black Library novel, then that shield will protect him as he forges on to a glorious victory in the name of The Emperor!

If he's on a tabletop with guys rolling dice around him, he'll be dead in three seconds! Lol ;)
