Contested Stronghold by Rahll Contested Stronghold by Rahll
This is a card I did for the Warhammer: Invasion card game from Fantasy Flight Games for Games Workshop. Finished this back in April and personally I feel like it shows, but the game is out this week I believe and I figured I'd show it.

Also, keep in mind, cards like this are meant to be viewed at a much smaller size than presented here, and are usually contracted on short deadlines. I got both of my cards in the mail the other day, though, and they look pretty sweet in print. Here's a crummy pic.

Hope you guys like it!

sweet man, did a drawing like this a while back but it was them defending it and fighting over the gate not the goblins or evil guys rushing in. needed a little more detail on the green army but that is my opinion, to be honest in my eye the detail would be that vague if those two guys were a couple hundred feet up but thats my opinion still love this piece.

I quite like the perspective on this...adds a certain depth to the image, giving the viewer a new angle on a regular battlefield.

warhammer dwarves are very cool, stylistically. I think you did a great job on them; it's a shame they cut the majority of them out on the card, they add so much to the painting =(

good thing you mentioned that the view was ment for a card. Up close it doesn't look that good, but a few hits of Ctrl- it looks a lot better

only real reason I never got into warhammer is that I never did understand why the fighting is going on but otherwise I like the designs withen the game.

Well, your painting skills are amazing as ever; though I feel this is one of your weaker compositions. My eye can't find anything to latch on to in the epic battle going on below, so it keeps snapping back to the shiny helmet on the right. But, as you said, they work better in print too.

Love the intricate detail on the dwarf's shield, and the shattering gate is epic.

Great work! :D
