"Because we couldn't be trusted. The Emperor needed a weapon that would never obey its own
desires before those of the Imperium. He needed a weapon that would never bite the hand that feeds.
The World Eaters were not that weapon. We've all drawn blades purely for the sake of shedding
blood, and we've all felt the exultation of winning a war that never even needed to happen. We are not
the tame, reliable pets that the Emperor wanted. The Wolves obey, when we would not. The Wolves can
be trusted, when we never could. They have a discipline we lack, because their passions are not aflame
with the Butcher's Nails buzzing in the back of their skulls."
"The Wolves will always come to heel when called. In that regard, it is a mystery why they name
themselves wolves. They are tame, collared by the Emperor, obeying his every whim. But a wolf
doesn't behave that way. Only a dog does."
"That is why we are the Eaters of Worlds, and the War Hounds no longer."

- Eighth Captain Khârn,
from his unpublished treatise The Eighteen Legions

There's a bit of a theme developing this week with the World Eater Legion. It's always a pleasure to paint Kharn, and always creates more ideas to explore with the next one. If you would like your own psychopath painted please get in touch.

Alternatively if you'd like to learn how to paint this with one to one online tuition check out the details here and shoot me an email.
