February Artfest: Untitled by John Blanche

Untitled by John Blanche

Oh, the glory that is Warhammer!

When I first encountered the world of Warhammer it was through the art work of John Blanche. Back in the early '00s I ran across a collection of Warhammer art when I was at school and I could not stop flipping through that old, battered book. And it smelled of smoke and failure but the art was more than anything I had ever imagined when it came to fantasy art.

Just look at this magnificent painting above!

That's the world that I send my players into time, and time again. We fight demons and impossible odds because of the art of men like John Blanche - only unlike most games influenced by Warhammer, we still have hope of victory.
