GtG: 02 - The Holy Country by Merlkir GtG: 02 - The Holy Country by Merlkir
"Esrolian queen gives audience to Hendriki Storm King. Her Grandmother adviser sits to the right, a Calandralander spearman stands guard to the left."

This is the second of three sample color plates we're releasing to promote the Guide to Glorantha book on Kickstarter:

Take a look at the KS video! It's already funded and we're tearing into the stretch goals.

If it were not for the magician-warrior Storm King (am I right? ), then this could have been a Ghnadaran (II c BC to IIc AD) look - the way you paint these magic lines is fantastic

That's pretty close. I think I was given images of some buddhist cave temples to get a feel of the place. The Storm King is an Orlanthi, closer to a bronze-age Celt visiting the east. ;)

those pieces should land you with Osprey, Concord and other folks, especially since last several years their plates are rather boring and dull

That would be nice. They do have that fantasy line of books now, which is somewhat bizarre.

Well, it is a corporate business now, so they trying to 'corner' every market so to speak :) - they will expand into that fantasy market quite a bit, gaming and film industry is very influential here - so try to jump onto their ship, although they are notorious for not paying too much..
