Ogre On War Rhino

Came across a mini which has really impressed me, it's an Ogre on a War Rhino, currently on Cool Mini Or Nots top 20 minis of the week. The reason it interests me was I was meant to be scultping something similiar myself. I am not a great fan of the Rhinox sculpts by GW, they are good of course, but I wanted something more ferocious and primal looking for my ogres. Have only done some rough sketches for own one at the moment. Anyway, this one was sculpted by Scibor, who has featured in White Dwarf for some of his custom Rhinox sculpts he done a few years ago now.

You can visit Scibors website here, there are some good minis available here.

The paintjob has some great colour choices and is really striking - love it. I am not sure of the artist who painted it, but great job!!! This model is available to buy in Scibors store now.

Artist Ralph Horsely's Talisman Box Art

Just come across a post from fantasy artist Ralph Horsely, the man responsible for all the box art paintings for the boardgame Talisman by Fantasy Flight Games. I have had the pleasure of seeing many of the original paintings for the boardgame and its expansions and believe me, Ralph is a fantastic painter. Cool arty stuff is why you are here so without much more waffle I'll get to the point.... Ralph is running an article on his blog detailing the step by step creation of the box art for the new expansion just released, Talisman The City.

If you look around Ralphs website you can view much of his work, some of which is still available for sale. Go have a look!!! Many CCG artwork originals especially from Magic The Gathering by Wizards of the Coast and World of Warcraft stuff.
