An orc itching for a fight
Military history book publisher, Osprey Publishing is venturing into the realm of fantasy and they got me to do a cover for what I believe is their first book in the genre. If you ever wanted to know how to fight and make war like an Orc then this may be the book for you.
As you can tell this has more LOTR vibe to it than Warhammer or WOW but I also wanted to add my own spin to it. As always I take my inspiration from history so my Orcs wield blade weapons that curve outwards like a falx, which has a more fearsome appearance in my opinion, rather than inwards like a scimitar and they're armed like the ancient Thracian warriors with crescent shaped shields, Thracian caps and javelins.
The book was recently announced with a June release date. >> ospreypublishing.com/blog/the_…
