Fantasy Fight Foes

I’ve been really busy with a few commissions the last couple of months, mainly Hysterical Games’ Panzerfäuste fantasy WW2 game (which is still ongoing) and a couple of others which I’ve finished but are yet to be announced officially.

So I thought I’d post something from my many sketches that I’ve scanned onto my computer and not posted before. I found these characterful creatures which were one of my possible foes for my Fantasy Fight picture back in 2008. I may well re-use these ideas in a future project as I quite like their distinct shapes.

Here’s my image which I designed on isometric paper as an exercise in a Diablo I and II style isometric perspective.

More sketches over the next few days.

Chaos Pirate of Nurgle

Games Workshop, for their ‘End Times’ projects, have recently created some new Nurgle miniatures and I felt they needed to reflect more of the characters’ written background on the miniatures themselves.  Now, bear in mind I haven’t read much of the latest text but ‘Gutrot Spume’ is meant to be the leader of the Chaos God Nurgle’s plague fleets and yet has nothing bar his tentacles to reflect his maritime nature.

Here’s my sketchbook page where I imagined a more piratical Chaos Champion with an Estalian (Warhammer Spanish) Conquistador feel (morion helmet and breastplate with tassets, slashed sleeves and so forth). I based his pose on the existing Gutrot Spume miniature, adding a ship’s bell on his back, corroded, barnacled armour, a bottle of rotgut grog and a Daemon sword. One of his tentacles also holds a Nurgle death’s head.

 

And now I worked the picture up into the following image (separating him into layers in Photoshop and using Painter 12 to paint above and below the layers). I changed the pistol to a Nurgle-daemon themed triple-barrelled duckfoot pistol.

I imagined he had the following rewards of Chaos:

Captain Eduardo ‘Worm-beard’ Montalban

Chaos Attributes:
Atrophy(leg)
Hideous Appearance
Zoological mutation 1 arm of an Octopus. (Combine tentacle and suckers rules)
Multiple arms +2
Chaos Rewards:
Chaos Armour
Daemon Weapon
Gifts of Nurgle:
Hide of Nurgle
Immensity
Trail of Slime

Dog-man, bird-man, space orc doctor sketchbook page

A sketchbook page from earlier this year:

There’s some dog-men sketches at the top – I was inspired by the make-up/mask work on the Die Antwoord video for Pitbull Terrier, which is a bit crazy and gory and so probably not safe for work and certainly not for children. Here’s a link if you’re interested:

The birdman sage idea I had when looking at a picture of an horned owl (with it’s longer ‘ear’ feathers) and I thought this would be a good look for an older, wise bird-man (or bird-woman).

The coloured in Space Orks are my ideas for what GW could have done when they brought out a plastic Space Ork Painboy earlier this year – some head options that reflected the classic Kev Adams Space Orks but in the newer, more brutal style.

GW stuff (Space Orks, Painboyz and so on) is fan art and not intended to infringe copyright.

A couple of sketchbook pages.

Whilst I’m busy with various things I thought I’d share these sketchbook fantasy scenes I drew a few years ago.  The first one (the market) I think I posted on the ImagineFX forum.  The second one depicts an ancient statue that has been built into the side of a tavern. The perspective is wonky but I still like them both. These are spontaneous drawings that I kept adding to when I had a spare moment.
