This is definitely Quixos Vs Eisenhorn, This was early in Eisenhorn's career and thats definitely Quixos' daemon sword Vs Barbarisater the blade that belonged to the slain Arianhrod Esw Sweydyr and fixed the pentagrammic and ant-deamon sigils. and although they did battle on a mountain as I recall they went underground thats how the heretics survived the orbital bombardment and the synthetic cadian obelisk was not seen from orbit so it must have been underground as well. But looking at it more closely theres just as many irregularities as there are coincidences, and it looks like Quixos has the staff eisenhorn made towards the end of the second or third book(cant remember). I wonder if this Image and the fluff came first and then Dan Abnett took inspiration from the image and adapted it to his book, I dont know the chronology or the relationship between GW canon and 40k novel canon.

I just read LoganGrimnar42's comment and yeah it is Eisenhorn Vs Eisenhorn despite titles and what not.

Praise be to our mighty Emperor! May his reign last to the end of time!

Anyways, this work is really excellent. Also, if you type the name of this artwork into StarWars: Galactic BattleGrounds The Clones Wars Expansion, it spawns an Imperial Star Destroyer.

Why yes, I am am random and full of useless knowledge.

Looks like the Rouge Trader is more pure than the Inquisitor, who's sword looks noticeably organic...

Inquisitors are allowed to use such items if they wish.
