Hi all! This was a cover done last year for Fantasy Flight Games' Only War: Hammer Of The Emperor. [link]

Big shout out to Zoe Robinson and Andrew at FFG for helping to produce this :)

I hope I did the Kasrkin justice for the IG fans out there! I wanted to evoke a sense of courage amidst fear and uncertainty, the flamer lighting the way and the plasma gunner scanning warily from the shadows as their team leader steps into the darkness ahead.

First personal piece of the year, this time some concept sketches for a personal game project I'm working on at the moment! Aiming for playable Beta by this year. Will post more updates as it comes along :)

Done last year for Galaxy Saga.

So basically now 'Lance Wielder Albatreon' is no longer looking for answers to life and is set on extinguishing all life as we know it. (At least that's how I like to re-imagine the brief :) )

For the greater good!

So with the release of the new Farsight Supplement and .pdf material across the internet, thought I'd show off the cover in its entirety! Big shout out to Darius Hinks at Games Workshop for being my AD/producer on this!

The Tau hold a special place in my heart because it speaks to the space commie in me proud asian and admirer of mobile suit wearing space samurai in me. When approached to do this cover, the brief was to try and match the great Raymond Swanland's dynamism, especially with his work on backgrounds. I tried to do it in my own way, bringing a blend of what I'd have liked to see into play to hopefully achieve a similar result without having to try and duplicate his technique. I think its a great intellectual exercise and challenge as an illustrator to stay true to an art brief/established vision of an IP while offering your own personal perspective to it, without recycling too much of others' genius, as they say. :)

Other bits for my inner fanboy:
-I always wondered about optic camoflauge for the Tau. Given the nature of the stealth-field generator([link], I imagined it skirting across a bright battlefield and almost appearing like a prism at times because of how many facets the nodes create and as such, how much ambient light overload it might carry over to each other detection/ projection point... and the stealth field computer not being able to keep up with calculating the reflection angles accurately given all the atmospheric phenomena occuring... resulting in chroma shifting, or at least just looking like a poor optical feed at the least. Spazzing all over the place with multiple wavelengths of light travelling about. Again, all this was mainly as an excuse so I can work in some colour to pull out the battlesuits from the background and perhaps offer some 'grittiness' where technology meets battlefield conditions.
-A long time ago I saw by IgnusDei and it left a lasting impression on me :). That idea of Farsight's Dawnblade literally facing the rising sun, was awesome! When composing this image that was the first idea that came to mind, but this time with Farsight with his back against the sun, offering a sensible, tactical narrative as well. I did a more graphic side-view of Farsight for readability/dynamism sake, but if I had more time or skill I would have preferred a more frontal shot of him descending upon the Ork hordes.
-Custom drones with winglets on the bottom, kind of a 'baby' remora.
-XV25s unloading at point blank /decloaking and about to plow into a sea of greenskins, in the famous Farsight CQB style. Dunno about you but the ensuing carnage to me seems tactically worth it. :p

Anyways, I hope the Tau fans amongst you enjoy this tribute to the Bane of Greenskins, Commander Farsight.

THE STORY
++Today, I will teach your kind the meaning of wrath. I will kill

a thousand of your filth-breed before your blood

dries on my gauntlets.++

++Gabriel Seth, Chapter Master of The Flesh Tearers++


Other bucketlist items I had to do for my inner 40K fan, hope im not pissing any hardcore fans off:
-"Oh my god... its full of stars... *kssshh* ...nope they're just tracers-"
-"This is Rhino 2-9 to Titan! Please advise on subsequent plasma trajectory...previous strike danger close-"
-Trying to stay faithful to the concept of Bolter rounds on impact.
-A friend kept saying how much he loved 'Beakie' helms.
-Re-purposed harness for Assault marine into webbing for extra ammunition/gear carrying capacity
-I loved gargants, and so I had to throw one in as tribute to how Epic 40k captured my imagination as a window-gazing kid.
-Crowd surfing marines, because when you're armoured like a tank, fighting eye to eye is so last millenium...


Big shout out to Karen Miksza at Black Library for being my producer/art director on this!

Done last year for Galaxy Saga.

The brief was to present 'Lance Wielder Albatreon' in his fighting element. I took the opportunity to depict the most upset looking combat cyborg that just woke up after a terribad surgery and is looking for answers to life.

Found an old fun image lying in the drive, was doing some WW-robo related projects at the time and remembered being really inspired by Ashley Wood's take on the genre :)
