Dark Angels Bombardment by JakeMurray Dark Angels Bombardment by JakeMurray
This piece comes from the Warhammer 40K "Curse of the Wulfen" book just recently released. Outer Space settings are always tricky. How do you create depth in space when there's no atmosphere? Well, ultimately you just have to fudge it.

This feels really ironic given the fact that Prospero was bombed 10k years ago due to chaos deception too. Except the charges were sorcery not furries. Magnus must be laughing really hard right now.

Was Prospero a planet controlled by the Imperium?

WAS, being an subject matter, the planet was world that became the home of Magnus the Red, Primarch of the XVth legion, the Thousand Sons. The world was destroyed during the Horus Heresy by Leman Russ and the VIth legion, the Space Wolves. On charge of sorcery, which was technically true, since it is the 15th legion's specialty. But Russ was tricked by Horus, the Warmaster, and Arch-traitor. Who told Russ that the Emperor wanted Magnus dead, and since Russ would never question the emperor, he went and essentially sacked the planet. Magnus and the Thousand Son are plotting their revenge to this day. But given the novel The Curse of the Wulffen, this is no longer needed, as the Wolves would have to face an ironic death by exterminatus soon.

Is that a Vengeance or an Avenger Class Grand Cruiser just under the Battlebarge?

In the art brief, I was told the planet is Midgardia in the Fenris System. ;)

There are several planets in the Finris System, though in the book, only Finris was about to get an orbital bombardment. So I think you may be right ;)

The DA just started to bomb not further named planets in the system... Nothing is said about bombing Fenris directly... Except for the internet ;)
