Ambush!

This was a scene from our Warhammer Fantasy game that never actually ended up happening. Heintz Miller in the whites and golds of his wizardly order and Alyssasaria Telstar in  her "Fire Nation" reds and golds are traveling back to her home in Laurelorn Forest to research at the Library of Hoeth when they are ambushed on the road.

Dun dun DUN! *roll initiative*

In the end they all made a trip to Cathay first, Heintz had some business to do up north to find a bear familiar (long story) and didn't make the journey with her. She and Johann Bauer, a Priest of Verena, made the trip instead--which is a good thing, the quiet and intelligent librarian priest made a much better impression on them than Heintz ever would have! Especially since the little flame elf had picked up a couple marks of Ashqy by that point (note the red hair and ember eyes) and was not terribly welcomed by her woodland kin...

Good poses, colours and details! I like the flaming sword and faces in particular.

Besides, have you ever heard of Warhammer Fantasy's spiritual successor? i.imgur.com/dlmQkB6.jpg

Thank you!! I had fun with that one :) The background came out much more flat than I had originally wanted, but the concept is there at least. 

I had not heard of T9A, looks good. Thank you again! We ended up moving on to the Pathfinder 2 Beta after Warhammer. Still has a few rough edges, but it's pretty fun thus far.

Thanks! I did some watercolor effects in the body of the fire and then basically used blur and smudge tools to give it the wispy look :)
