A lonely watch. A thankless death.
Zanko Presents: Artisan's Contest XXIII!
Watchtower Artwork Challenge
The goal here is to create a piece of artwork depicting one or more Chaos Dwarf or Hobgoblin watchtowers. This can be done by drawing, sketching or painting it (i.e. no
miniature entries). Digital tools are allowed, and some scribblings as seen on many concept sketches are likewise allowed, but please keep any text amount low. The amount of work invested in the art entry can vary from a simple sketch up to a full-blown illustration.
Grab the opportunity to present us your take(s) on Dawi Zharr or Hobgoblin watchtower! Your entry could be a sketch, a technical/architectural schematic or an illustration. You could depict a lonely watchtower out in the ashen wastes or overlooking some craters, open pit mines or lava springs, or even place a watchtower in the middle of a lava pool. Likewise, you could have a watchtower out of the rock wall of a mountain or an open pit mine, overlooking the wilds or works below; or a coastal watchtower; a mobile watchtower mounted on a train car; or even a watchtower floating on the water or in the air; or something else completely!
Surrounding facilities such as lodgings, stables, stores, water tanks or barricades are welcome if entrants want to add such details to the watchtower. Watchtower personel are welcome, and if you want to include a scene of enemies sighted, Nasty Skulkers climbing the walls of the tower or monsters attacking the outpost, a mechanized war caravan steaming past or an important courier being received, then by all means do so!
The gold winner will recieve one kit of four 15mm Tjubling blunderbusses
from Admiralty Miniatures (note: can be used for terrain decoration in 28mm collections
