Tower Painting

I just sent the final illustration to the editor. Here are two in-progress photos. You can see I moved away from Bédeoyère's Scarborough sketch. The article author didn't want crenelations on the tower walls (these weren't meant to withstand a siege). I initially wanted an isometric view from above, but in the end opted for a ground level view with another tower in the distance. Check Ancient Warfare Magazine vol III, issue 6 for the completed illustration. It was fun doing a night scene—those aren't so common.

    thanks friend....

  2. I have begun doing research on older german warriors that are known for there battle scars. An old German teacher I had was explaining how these warriors (not sure who) who self inflict battle scars to seem more admirable. I am trying to find some information on this tribe and thought that you could be of some assistance. I think I may have narrowed it down to the Chatti or Hattoz, but havent been able to get much further then that. Any information or book sources that you could help me with would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
