A new series of illustrated plates from a recently released book, "Cthulhu Wars" by Osprey Publishing. I worked on these a couple years back but because release of the book was severely delayed for some reason unknown to me I am only able to show post them up here now. Not a fan of Lovecraft's work but I honestly had a lot of fun working on these and learned some things about the Cthulhu Mythos. I hope you guys like them.

Mount Leng-e Mulla Aman, Afghanistan (October 31, 2007)
US Delta Force assaulting the Temple of Leng in the mountains of Afghanistan. A swarm of Mi-Go bursts forth from the temple to attack the soldiers in Blackhawks while the Men of Leng exchange fire with the rests of the recon team on the ground. High in the sky an AC-130U Spectre gunship unloads on the temple defenders but it's shells veers and bows off into strange directions as if warped by some unknown gravity field.

You can check the book out here>>ospreypublishing.com/the-cthul…

The green triangle patch on the soldier's arm... a nod to Delta Green?

The triangle I'm not sure of, but the dagger within it is definitely a part of their actual patch. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delta_Fo…

I was talking about Delta Green. www.delta-green.com/

Derp, misread your question. But I'd almost imagine it being a subtle nod to it.
