Thousand Thrones by RalphHorsley Thousand Thrones by RalphHorsley
Thousand Thrones
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay cover artwork.

Acrylic, approx 14" x 18"

© Black Industries, Games Workshop Ltd.


They had paraded for countless miles, yet still their cracked voices rang out in worshipful song.

This was a recently completed cover for the forthcoming WFRP supplement. I wanted to capture the classic grimy Warhammer feel, and mood.

I choose a palette that ranged form yellow to deep purpley-reds. I felt this was suitably atmospheric. Then to emphasis the focal point of the picture I put a green shade on the palanquin, and also centred the light source here, consequently becoming the lightest part of the picture.

Further details of the book can be found here:

Funny thing. I finished the game with some friends and it was a good experience. Good work by the way. Looking at the cover returned me to that state of mind to role play every time I went overboard.
