High Lords of Terra by MajesticChicken High Lords of Terra by MajesticChicken
Colored up this pic of the High Lords of Terra, those who rule in the Emperors 10k year long absence. From left to right: Inquisition, Imperial Guard, Administratum and finally Adeptus Mechanicus.

This is only four of the nine lords, there is not a representative for Astartes. You have to expand your browsing window to get a really good look, clicking on it won't do much.


Original artist is Adrian Smith.

Shut up little Billy! Now, what were we talking about? Something about banning the breathing of air for anyone that isn't us.

The grim future is a... well.. grim world... corruption is rooted deep in the 41st m. Imperium.

That should answer your question I hope.

It's actually not that bad. In fact, the Master of the Administratum gets to finally retire and eat up all those checks like the worthless piece of s**t he is.

Fabricator General: "Isn't that what you're al-rea-dy do-ing?"
Administratum Master: "Yeah, but know I can feel like a worthless piece of s**t! It's the whole package!"

I hate the idea of a group of mortals rulling in His name, as they surely corrupt His vision. Still, awesome picture, and as much as I dislike High Lords, I like your job.

So did these men live for 10k years? or do the high lords change hands after awhile?

thats the one thing I never understood concerning the highlords.

I think they did change lords when the officio assanitorium's representative beheaded all the other high lords, really really good times

They live for a long time, but not that long. I believe they change hands when someone dies.
