    Oh so awesome! That map is great! And the four treasure hunters and the pygmy look pretty much how I puctures them! So good! That signpost is amazing! I want to build it!

    Agreed... it would make for a great piece of terrain.

    It´s going to be so easy to know what to build for the (hopefully) coming terrain contest... Or too hard! Too many good ideas!

    Inspired from Among the Dust, a humorous take on the wild west of Lustria- my idea for the mage-chief Sitting Frog
    Sitting Frog.jpg

    Also here is something I was working on the past week: WIP teaser. You might be able to figure out what the top figure is based on the tail

    I still like the look of that Chief slann, but I am excited to see how this new poster turns out! Looking good already!

    Full sketch:

    Canul the Chameleon and Zul-K'an the High Priest of Mutal (main lizardmen characters in my as yet unfinished short story Ten Little Treasure Hunters)
    ZK 1.jpg
    Canul
    ZK 2.jpg

    ZK 3.jpg

    ZK 4.jpg

    Not entirely happy with Zul-K'an. I wanted to make his "frill" look like the head-crest from the Lustrian Campaign Book (think that awesome artwork of Tenehuanin). I will redraw him some other time.

    Hope you like the sketch!

    Map of Nabar

    Working on the map of one of my Bretonnian colonial cities in the New World, heavily influenced by a certain doomed city of the Old World...
    IMG_1390.JPG
    West City
    IMG_1391.JPG
    East City
    IMG_1392.JPG

    Also to help me find stuff (the map is a bit cramped) I made a numbers chart.
    Map of Nabar Numbers 2.jpg

    CITY GATES (red boxes)
    1- Salt Gate (also the Ocean Gate)
    2- Lagoon Gate
    3- West Road Gate (road to Jeruga)
    4- South Gate (also the Count's Gate, on the south road to the Zaragon Mines)
    5- East Gate (road to Port of Zaragon)
    6- Lost Gate (locked/out of use)

    WEST CITY (purple circles)
    1- Arabyian Quarter
    2- Quayside
    3- West City Watch Garrison
    4- the Grand Stables
    5- Temple of the Lady (along with small Templar Garrison)
    6- Mansions of the Nobility
    7- the Noble's Green
    8- the Gallows
    9- the Great Keep (built on the ruins of an ancient temple...)
    10- Count of Nabar's Mansion (also built upon ruins, like most of the nice spots of the city)

    EAST CITY (blue circles)
    1- Dockside Slums
    2- Temple of Manaan, Bretonnian God of the Sea
    3- Red Light District
    4- Estalian Enclave
    5- New World Branch of the Bank of Marienburg
    6- Merchant's Quarter
    7- Midriver Bridge (over the Nulum River, which splits the city and feeds into the Crocodile Lagoon)
    8- the Dragon Clocktower (refurbished ancient snake-statue)
    9- THE PIT
    10- Garden of Morr (temple of Morr and city cemetery)
    11- Shrine of Sigmar (also the Imperial Quarter)
    12- Squalorville
    13- Market Square (in the tunnels beneath is the black market)
    14- Artisan's Quarter
    15- Tavern Row
    16- East City Watch Garrison
    17- Statue of Sir Godfrey (first [uncrowned] king of Jeruga)

    (IN)FAMOUS TAVERNS (green diamonds)
    1- the Scroll and the Wineskin
    2- the Crown Inn

    North of the city along either side of the lagoon are large swamplands known as the Salt Marshes (West) and the Caiman Swamps (East). Several slums/tribal camps are scattered about the immediate vicinity. Also not pictured are directly to the south of the East City are the Hills of Og.

    Wow! This is incredible! Great details, it is always great to see someone take their army and give it a backstory, and even better when that person really brings those ideas to life, through art, conversions, and writing. (And now Cartography! :p) You have so many rich ideas, and it just makes your wargaming miniatures really come to life! I am glad you share this with us! I am looking forward to more!

    Wow extremely impressive might nick the concept ;) - I've been avoiding doing it because looking at the lore maps of lustria there are specific points of note but fuck it they can have an previously uncatographised island or something ;) besides since I've now read there are floating islands and tree forts it pretty much is inviting me to chuck my own locations into the mix - my fire crabs need a beach.

    Edit - Also i'm seriously considering making a chief slann based on your artwork lord knows Ihave enough to play around with :p

    Updated picture, now with color.

    Zul-K'an and Canul.jpg
    The High Priest and his Spy

    Again, not happy with the skink's green. Should have been more of a goblin green, but then again I only had 10 colored pencils to choose from.

    Love the chameleon's shape/line outline, color was an experiment. Also love the detail on his serpent blowpipe. Makes me want to get the Oxylotl mini and paint him up!

    Glyphs read "Mutal," the Temple City of my creation. I probably wont ever go fix it but I originally imagined the background of this picture being black (talking about outside the white square background immediately behind the figures) but that would take too long to color with my colored pencils.

    Overall, pretty good representation of the characters. Eventually I will create a new picture to represent Zul-K'an.

    start of a new project. Been churning out the art projects as my fluff-writing has been slow.

    Carnosaur Head WIP.jpg

    Something else I learned while conducting research on dinosaurs. Carnosaur, specifically the group carnosauria, consists of the large predatory dinosaurs including Allosaurus and Giganotosaurus; they were a subgroup of the therapod family where our favorite T-rex is a member.

    Pardon the nerd rant. Just thought it was cool that the term carnosaur is actually a real thing. :vulcan:

    So this one didn't turn out as planned or expected. :mad::banghead::banghead::banghead:
    Not happy with the rider. :bag: Will need to revisit this one after a later date.

    Carnosaur Rider WIP.jpg

    Supposed to be my saurus oldblood Smoke Frog on his carnosaur (the banners on his saddle are based on the ones from the WIP model I have going. Need to finish this guy too once I figure out exactly how I want the color scheme to look.

    Smoke Frog WIP.png

    Sijak K'ak, "Smoke Frog," Fire is Born. Saurus Oldblood of Mutal, general of the Jade Host.

    Image based on the following:
    The dinosaur head and body come from two different images. The head is taken from a work from Joe Mad, who I am pretty sure works for Marvel comics based on the barbarian wolverine at the bottom of the picture.
    Ultimate Dinosaurs Joe Mad.jpg

    awesome t-rex
    T Rex.jpg

    Tried to model the saurus after the Death Dealer (Frank Frazetta) but it didn't work as planned.
    death_dealer_by_ray4359-d54zepa.jpg

    WIP shots of the process:
    Carnosaur Rider WIP 01.jpg

    After the first face I tried to redo the rider, not happy with his face, head, or general proportions.
    IMG_1401.JPG

    IMG_1402.JPG

    Also did a color image of the unlucky warmblood's heraldry:

    Sir Gaunt's Heraldry.jpg

    Decided this will be the heraldry of Sir Rupert of House Gaunt, Questing Knight.

    Fun drawing, enjoyed adding the skulls he has in his hands. Making a drawing look like an actual tabletop model was also enjoyable.

    I think the problem with the rider is the leg, it doesn´t look quite right

    That's definitely part of it. His pose doesn't look right. I also don't like his face, looks too fake. I will try and look at pictures of actual lizards/dinosaurs for future attempts.
