Tome of Salvation by RalphHorsley Tome of Salvation by RalphHorsley
Tome of Salvation

Acrylic; approx 27" x 15"
WHFRP supplement Tome of Salvation cover artwork.
Games Workshop

Original artwork for sale:
Web Shop:[link]
A corrupt Chaos temple, dedicated to Nurgle, is assaulted by a force comprising religious figures from all the major temples in the Empire.

This is a wraparound cover, making it a diffilcult composition, as the right hand side needs to work on its own as a front cover, whilst the whole also needs to hang together as a single picture. I decided to create a sweeping composition that runs in a loose arc across the whole picture.

There are a lot of figures in the composition, and in some ways it is quite cluttered. To help bring some order there are various light sources dotted around that provide their own areas of focus and attention. In a further emphasis the central figures and demon are set against the strongly contrasting green.

I hope you enjoy looking at the piece. To see it at its largest click the download option - this will fairly quickly bring up the largest image possible.

I look forward to any comments.

I just purchased a copy of the Tome of Salvation supplement. I'm really excited to have a physical copy of your artwork as it's my favorite piece of Warhammer Fantasy I've come across. I look forward to getting my hands on your other works via the supplements! Just thought I'd say it's really really a great piece.

thank you for this, What I more appreciate of Warhammer related art are those messy scenes, like in Blanche's artworks. My compliments.
