This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

This is one of my favorite pieces from the Galactic Civil War era. This battle, which took place after the destruction of the first Death Star but before the events of Empire Strikes Back, was an elaborate ambush set by Vader and the Empire to destroy the Alliance leadership along with its fleet. Under overwhelming odds the Rebels would've fled to a designated location where they would regroup, but had they done that they would have found another Imperial fleet waiting for them. The fleet instead dispersed and made random jumps to avoid being completely annihilated. The Alliance almost lost the entire fleet from this battle but enough survived to carry on the fight and eventually make a comeback at the Battle of Endor.

This battle is recounted in the Star War comic "Rebellion: My Brother, My Enemy".

The first one is a battle between the Lusankya of the New Republic Forces under the command of Wedge Antilles and the Reaper, commanded by Gilad Pellaeon of the Imperial Remnant. The two SSDs hammer each other while the wreckage of the fleet carrier Endurance goes down in flames.

An aerial panoramic view of the famous Battle of Grassy Plains in Ep 1. It was very tedious to paint hordes of Gungans and Battle Droids plus I had to make sense of the troop formations but it all turned out well in the end.

"One last battle to hold the line against the night!"

I think that the Minbari would make a short job with the Federation. Until, of course, the Enterprise arrives...

Now that Galaxies is officially defunct, I thought it safe to post some of my favourite illustrations here for posterity sake..!

Working on this franchise for close to 2 years really helped me grow as a creative and allowed me to explore many aspects of the craft-- its not often you get to play the role of illustrator, story-teller and designer within a single commission. It was truly rewarding in hindsight and more often that not, a very humbling experience when you witness the sheer quality and passion of other fellow creatives working on the same project, really inspires you to stretch yourself beyond the usual bounds!

Hard to see where you're going in a firefight with those blinders for a visor... ;) Still love scout troopers all the same.

Battle-worn company of walkers moving quickly through a narrow pass.

I added my usual preference of wargear to the AT-STs, obviously keeping canon in mind and always making sure that whatever I've added have somehow appeared in SW stories at some point. In this image I thought it would be nice to show a different loadout for the different walkers in a company. The light footed scout to the left of the image sporting long range mortars bolted to the upper rear of the turret, communications antenna and 6-pack dumbfire rockets for harrassment. Also small, lightweight reactive armour plates to cover the vulnerable battery packs on the underside of the turret.

The main lead unit just has to have a nonchalant cool-headed gunner who is probably soaking in the sunrise :p, and it also sports 2 rotating grenade launcher mounts on its lower cheeks, plus a winch system under the main chin gun and shielded weapon systems.

I think both of my Lando illustrations were revealed around the same time back when Edge of the Empire came out, so I decided to post this smaller LCG version at a later date. 

It's a later date!

This one is from the Edge of Darkness expansion:http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_npm_sec.asp?eidm=184&esem=1&epmi=s

Okay, so start playing the Imperial March on youtube, come back, and then look at it all over again for maximum effect. This image of Darth Vader and his loyal snowtroopers is from Fantasy Flight's upcoming "Star Wars: The Card Game," one of the products being released as a part of their new Star Wars line. If all goes well, I should be able to post some more soon!

If you're interested, there's more where that came from:

Landed in an underground hangar, a Miralukan B-wing pilot is taking the structural integrity of her ship rather lightly. The same can't be said for the Dug who has to fix it all up.

Another quick paint between commissions to keep me sane, I think I'm getting down a nice balance.

Here's the Star Protectorate flagship with an escort fleet. It is the most powerful ship on it's side of known space. Rarely deployed into battle, it stands watch over the protectorate, a deterrent to any invasion.

A commission for :iconzachg56: ~Zachg56 of the armor for one of his characters.

Another design based in the StarWars universe, this soldier is part of a planets self run defense forces, though they have ties with the Imperials so some aesthetic and technology is shared.

Do first contact situation ever go peacefully? Of course they don't because that would be boring.
Anyway what your looking at is a first contact situation between the Humans and the first alien race to go into the game Novus Aeterno the Verunas. I have shown some of their ship designs recently and this is the first full illustration with them in so it was nice to paint something other than Human V Human.

The Verunas aren't very friendly they are the most advanced race in the game and they know it, they are big headed both physically and mentally.

Also this painting will cover a 20ft wall at out booth at PAX in April which will be rather cool to see.

Enjoy

So here it is finally, my Battlefleet Gothic painting done as a birthday present for my brother, Took a long time to get everything how I wanted it but there is always room for improvement but I wont be working on this one any more.

Simple scene depicting a fight against the Imperial fleet and the forces of Chaos, it shows a light frigate class ship on a collision course with the Imperial fleets capitol ship and firing of a load of missiles as it goes, also it under heavy fire from light weapons. The capitol ship can also be seen firing its huge side mounted cannon arrays at something, but what? a ship that size firing that many shots must be very keen of destroying what ever it is, and that frigate is damn keen on keeping the ship from firing. I will leave that to your imagination. Background shows a few skirmishes and a broadside going on..... everyone loves a bit of broadside action.

Enjoy and Happy Birthday Bro this ones for you.

This illustration was to give an idea of the Human ships defenses, they have shields but they are magnetic field shields similar to real world attempts at creating energy shields. The shields are invisible both when active and when hit only the fact that the explosions look different and obviously detonate before hitting the ship can you tell they have shields. The other defense is the flak system, inspired by Battlestar Gallactica the Humans in this game are very slap dash they would rather hurl hundreds of inexpensive projectiles at an area to protect against missile bombardments than spend a lot of money on creating and installing a system that is accurate and more effective. Also for shits and giggles what looks better a single shot gun or a cloud of explosions?
