Binge-Ho - Dwarf counters by RalphHorsley Binge-Ho - Dwarf counters by RalphHorsley
Binge-Ho! Dwarf Counters

Acrylic, approx 16" x 4"

© Games Workshop

Not for sale.

I was asked to create six distinctive stand-up counters for each of the playing colours.

I really enjoyed trying to impart personality into each of the blighters, and to varying their beard stylings!

One more and you got a Snow White! Alternatively, it's a great way to show off different dwarven fashions.

The are all very unique characters. The different styles of the beard, clothing as well as color scheme give them their own special personality. The last one is got the right degree of coolness:D

It's not dwarfy enough if you don't include a axe on every single one of them, or have three/four layers of mud/blood/puke on them. (Dwarf fortress game, they are not programed to care yet. how ever the same goes for fire...)

well I can usually apply good quality brush strokes and all that from trial and error, I just never have any good ideas which make me want to design them out.

You could say Im an fairly uncreative artist. :bucktooth:

Look for inspiration in literature, games, or even other's paintings ?

most games dont seem very interesting to me from an artistic point of view sadly, although there are certainly a few of them which I've drawn bits and bats over the years from.
I watch several differant digital artists webshows occassionally and am a member of iScribble (a digital artist meeting place where you all draw on the same canvas) but Im not a digital artist myself by any means of the word, although I do own a touchscreen laptop which I bought specifically for the purpose.

I do look at your art and find it rather refreshing, especially when you do something like the Binge-Ho series, and am honestly tempted to buy the game just to have a full set of your dwarf cards. XD

Speaking of Dwarves, theres an acsii game someone showed me called "Dwarf Fortress" I couldnt figure out how to play it myself, but if you are interested and arent too busy you could have a look at it yourself :)
