WHFB: Thirsting Altar

Why are you here? Mortal, birthed in pain and blood. Plaything of capricious gods. Mortal, raised on hardship and toil. Worshipper and sacrificer. Mortal, doomed to strife and wasting death. Bloodstained priest and screaming victim. Know that all the world is an altar of death, ever yearning for the bloodletting of the living, running red and slick with the savage lifeblood of untold tribes.

Know your duty, mortal, and fulfill your reason for being: Wage war in the name of your gods, honour your kin and slay your foes. Know the very cause of your existence: Go forth, mortal, and die.

These are fantastically stark, i love the textures on the armour. But I really find myself captivated by the slightly misty and faded-looking backgrounds!

@Oxymandias Sorry, couldn’t resist.

I really love these illustrations. If I one day tackle my Kislev project, they sure will come in handy as sources of inspiration. By the way, is there any official illustration of them aside from the one classic conversion Tuomas did for WD?
