Artwork


Artwork Arrived

Privateer Press did a Kickstarter for an Artbook, and as an incentive they offered up large canvas art prints of any artwork they had that was in a large enough file size. At first they had a bunch of their montage battle scenes. But then they started answering requests as to whether or not this image or that was large enough to process into a large canvas print.Of course I had to ask for the Great Chief himself.This is the spot where he'll go in the basement. I'll update with a picture of it in place once I'm done. I ran out of command strips from putting up some foam on the walls to make the game room less bouncy. The thing up there now is a print I had made of the Northkin artwork onto a cloth. Guess I'll have to find a new spot for it!

The Art of Privateer Press Kickstarter Funded!

When they first revealed the Privateer Press kickstarter rewards, I breathed a sigh of relief. There were basically just a few levels of support: Book (digital and/or print), Pre-release model (minimum 30 dollar buy in, but only 17 dollars if picked up with one of the book options), two hundred dollar canvas print of their artwork.It didn't seem like I needed to go deep into the kickstarter.  There wasn't anything I really wanted in the list of available canvas prints. I mean, sure, I love the big foldout battle-scenes and whatnot, but what I wanted was mah boi Madrak, Great Chieftain.I pledged 40 dollars for a print and digital copy of the book and was content to wait and watch the Kickstarter progress.But then I actually read the thing, and they said you could comment on the page asking if certain prints were available.Then I saw someone actually request and get a response for a particular print to be made available as a canvas option.Then I logged in and made my own request.Now, five days later, I'm p

The Art of Privateer Press Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/privateerpress/the-art-of-privateer-pressAs the screenshot above shows, Privateer Press is putting out its artbook on Kickstarter, and there are just 11 days to back it.They've set this up so that there are incremental rewards for social and dollar goals, but most of them relate to artwork. There are tiers for number of pages in the book, tiers for sketchbooks of their various lines, and even one early release model.However, this kickstarter is about the artbook, and as such, I've changed my pledge from the 57 in the screenshot taken earlier to just 40 USD.40 USD covers both a digital and physical copy of the artbook. It is literally the minimum I need or want from the campaign.There is an intriguing "Curator" pledge at 240 USD that gets you (I'm guessing) good quality resolution canvas print, but the options available for those right now aren't really appealing to me. A lot of them are full battlespreads from the release of Mk2 or 3 and that famous Ashlynn art that had ev

Matt Explains Artbook Kickstarter

The other day, Matt Wilson explained why they were going to use Kickstarter as a vehicle for the release of their artbook, even though it's "just" a collection of previously released artwork:Art books, however, are not a product that has traditionally been a staple offering of game distributors and game stores... As an art book is an expensive undertaking, we have been cautious about producing something unlikely to receive a reception through our traditional distribution channels and that might fail to justify its expense and effort. This makes sense to me. Every art book I've ever flipped through or purchased has been picked up at a bookstore, not at the gamestore. And usually those books were intellectual properties with wider appeal than a specialist hobbyist miniature wargame like Warmachine (unsure if this is meant to be all ips from Privateer Press or just warmachine). For instance, Game of Thrones and Blizzard have larger audiences than the far more niche Warmachine.However, Privateer Press probab
