Lion El' Jonson by lobaud Lion El' Jonson by lobaud
An initial design and pose study of a possible painting I've been meaning to do of the 1 Legion Primach ... I've followed the Dark Angels for more than 20 years now and I feel it's time to have a go at the son of the forest before Forgeworld locks the design in stone

The only thing that missing is the winged Helmet.

Myeeea, Helmets have a tendency to make the image story less dramatic due to the lack of facial expression - unless it's an open face helmet, and the winged mk7? Lion helm is not, soooo

Could have a it strapped to his belt.

The Lion Helm does have a Shielding device that can be activated even when it's not equipped.

True the only thing I think the Lions Helm would have been originally ever a MkII Crusade or maybe a MkIV Maximus Helmet in 30K.

seeing as in canon the MkVII Aquila patten didn't start being used until the end of the Horus Heresy.

Maybe El'Jonson's Armor was a suit of MkII Crusade Armor, and after the fall of Caliban the only think his Legion found of him was his Helmet, Which they may have reforged it into more advanced series of Armor.

Good point, I suspect primarchs wear armor that is unique to them because of their sheer size though, but of course the technology would have to be modulated on an existing platform like MkII as you say or even MkIV ( Corvus' legion was the first to recieve this while he was still alive - hence the name Corvus armor ) - hopefully I'll have time to sketch a little on the Lion during christmas, I'll post an update so you can help me with the details ;)
