EMPEROR'S TAROT - The Space Marine by Aerion-the-Faithful EMPEROR'S TAROT - The Space Marine by Aerion-the-Faithful
THE SPACE MARINE

Self-control – Being solid

Composure – Stability – Perseverance

Discipline – Inner strength


The Space Marine stresses discipline and control. The xenos creature represents the primal or id-like part of the mind, and the Astartes, the 'higher' or more elevated parts of the mind. The card tells the querent to be wary of base emotions and impulse.

This is one of the most iconic cards I've drawn. Space Marines are, to all intents and purposes, the representation of the Imperium of Man. Its defenders and most revered warriors. And, as such, I wanted this card to really evoke the relentlessness of the Adeptus Astartes and their famous "know no fear" trait. I, of course, chose the Ultramarines as they're (as I've mentioned before) the finest example of a Codex adherent Chapter.
In keeping with the symbolism of the Tarot deck, I replaced the traditional Lion with a Tyranid, which made this quite awesome, I think.

I hope you like this one and as usual, let me know what you think!
