Wait, since when does that image of the Tech-Assassin correspond to Kelbor-Hal? I think that they just look alike, or that they just reused the artwork (I took that picture from the FFG Black Crusade Rulebook). I'll delete that mention of him in the description, unless someone can source where Kelbor-Hal is shown as looking like that (and no, Lexicanum won't do) --Talon of Anathrax (talk) 10:55, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

  • That image is originally from Visions of Heresy (somehow reversed), and it is indeed Kelbor-Hal and I think he's being flanked by Erebus and Maloghurst. FFG must have reused the artwork. Dark Heresy has some artwork for imperial tech assassins though--Dark Angel 2020 (talk) 18:20, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Really? If you remember in what DH book, I'll add it in (I basically have them all, except the Lathe one). If not, I'll give it a look when I have time. But do you think I should make a separate entry for Velocireapers? It's unclear whether or not they're servitors, daemons (improbable) or simply robots. About the image, isn't Visions of Heresy never? Black Crusade is from 2011, and I think it's from 2014 - So maybe Kelbor-Hal just looks like them. Damm you GW for reusing old artwork! (Although it is awesome, so we forgive you) --Talon of Anathrax (talk) 12:01, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
  • The "original" Visions of Heresy book predates the Horus Heresy novel series by a long margin, and most of the artwork came from Sabertooth Games trading cards, and the fluff was essentially the blueprint for the storylines we read today, introducing things like the Golden Throne being a webway portal and the introduction of characters that didn't appear in books until much later, Black Library re-released Visions incorporating new artwork, so the original edition is out of print. As for the assassin, yes it was the lathes book, since they are a playable career path --Dark Angel 2020 (talk) 17:47, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
