Starting an alternative WW2 RPG, need visuals

Postby ArqArturo » Fri Dec 23, 2011 2:13 am

I'll soon start a WW2 rpg campaign with a few friends, using the D20 Modern and D20 Past books, with a few twists here and there (think of Hellboy and Captain America-esque characters fighting SS werewolves, Panzer mechas, and Thule cultists using zombie vikings in unsuspecting French villages), but I need some images to capture part of the 'feel' of the game. Sure, it's all in my head. So far, there's very little images that capture that image, so I need to know if anyone knows an artist website that shows a few of these.

this sounds great! :D

the only place I could think of getting images for something like this is Dust tactics/warfare. its a little more sci-fi then what I assume your looking for but the nazis have mechs, zombies, and nazi gorillas :mrgreen:

unfortanatly there is little to no artwork for the game yet as it has not yet fully been released so almost all the pics will be of the miniatures

Ah, Dust Tactics. I actually have some of those minis myself :D . and they look really cool, but sadly, that's where I found out I suck at painting the small details. I plan to get a few extra minis for the game, to be honest :p .

I have been meaning to pick up a pack my self :P they would be perfect if you use a tabletop perspective for your game (which I might have to steal the idea of for my group :P ) but if your not a good painter and you are using tabletop minis I might reccomend axis and allies (if im not mistaken) my game store use to sell booster packs for it similar to the star wars minis and hero clix games. they are pre painted but I also beleive they are random and im pretty sure they dont make them anymore... :P

I think they do, because the owner of the local store said he'd ordered a few. I'm not the best painter ever, but I do enjoy painting, and it gives me practice from when I need to improve on my Warmachine army :p .

I told you that

EDIT: Yah I'm stealing this idea for a small side game to our main DnD campaign for when we can't get the entire group together :P
