>Custodes looking like obese ogres

I swear Neil Roberts' art is getting worse, Custodes are supposed to have a more lithe design, not these abominations,,,,,

it does look pretty grandiose, but the bad CGI look it has (I don't even know how much is painted and how much is 3D) cheapens it down something fierce and makes it look stiff and cold.

Look at all the roman architecture, definetly not 40k, plus modern custodes wear black cloths not red.

Besides, that image is way too bright and prosperous to be in 40k.

Indeed, they aren't, since they're not supposed to stand in front of the emperor and take shots for him, they're supposed to go out and kill the guys that are currently located in the room ten hundred kilometers away from his.

He turned out like this because they weren't trying to do that, because they weren't supposed to.

They're only meatshields insofar as a soldier fighting abroad is his country's meatshield.

You dumbass its the Horus Heresy. EVERYTHING was more Roman and bright and propserous. And besides that, you honestly believe that in a galaxy of 1 million human worlds, not ONE would be nice to live on? Even though some are outright said to be so prosperous that slaaneshi cults form on them just because the people have lives so good?
