YakTribe Gaming logo

The new YakTribe gaming site is finished and using my logo design to boot! YakTribe is a fan site devoted to long-lost favorite games published by Games Workshop (Necromunda and Mordheim and GorkaMorka soon). It’s very well done so if you have an interest in this sort of thing I recommend it.

The brief was to create a logo of a yak head and I recalled seeing an ancient Citadel Miniatures catalogue which had a couple of science-fiction versions of a minotaur. They had guns for horns so I figured this could be a special pit-fighter on Necromunda; a mutant abhuman cyborg! I believe they were sculpted by the talented Nick Bibby (they looked like modified Nick Bibby minotaurs.) I’ve tracked them down to here:

This is the progression of my picture in Painter:

Here’s the final image:

And the YakTribe website can be found here:

And also I contributed some other images for Ash Wastes Nomads and their badge.

With the Ash Wastes Nomad design I was both homaging John Blanche’s original intricate Confrontation drawing ( http://gothicpunk.tumblr.com/image/8512253130″) whilst also respecting the newer versions produced for Necromunda and adding some extra ideas on top!
