Concept Art- Galagido

Post by Exin » Sun May 31, 2009 1:22 pm

In this thread I will post my concept art for the Galagido faction. It is foremost meant for my own fun, but if MWG decides to use any of it that would be awesome ofcourse.

When drawing the warrior I tought about a CC orientated, savage guy. He doesn't have alot of armor and will be taken down quitte fast by gun shots, but when he actually gets in close you are toast. He comes in fast and hard. When drawing him I didn't see the rules for the Galagido yet, so I didn't know they all use spears. Right now he is equiped with homemade swordaxes. I can easily change that though. He has a tribal tattoo on his right arm, probably meant to show his courage or strength to the gods. The lack of armor enables him to get in close fast, and can probebly be explained by his believe in the gods/magic that will protect him. I don't know, I am not here to make the fluff ;-) Hope you enjoy!

IMO it looks a bit too viking, I personnaly invision a more south american style kind of thing. But then again they could all be different all around the world.

From what I have read about them so far they are a druidic tribe believing in some kind of magic (tech) having tribal tattoos and believing in several gods. Doesn't sound like South America to me nor South Afrika. I thought you meant afrika instead of america since I don't see what amerika has to do with spears, but correct me if im wrong.

looking good so far Infardi! Though his right eye looks a bit off and the tattoo on his chest looks like its cut in half, wich was actually meant to be one piece. But those are ust small things. Also I might change this drawing into having a spear later this week, so you might have to make a new one :?

Sorry, pet peeve of mine...


Dingpong,

The "Vikings" were Celts!
"Viking" is a VERB, not a race or tribe. It means to travel and pillage, taking what ever you can get your hands on: treasure, food, slaves, etc...

The classic "Vikings" were primarily Danish Celts that went on a viking because of a poor harvest (probably because of a draught). The classic viking era relativiely ended on October 4, 1066 at Stamford Bridge in England (about a week to ten days before the Battle of Hastings on October 14) when King Haroild Godwinson slaughtered hundreds (if not thousands) of maruaders who had aligned themselves with Harrald Hardrada and Godwinson's brother, Tostig. The "vikings" showed up at Stamford Bridge expecting the inhabitants of a nearby town to surrender at dawn (basically with no armor), they found the King's army in full kit - the battle took ALL day!!

"Vikings" were basically farmers who played pirate when the crops sucked or they got really bored...

The Celts are a group of people who migrated from central Europe (Germany) to northern Europe (The Netherlands, Denmark, Hollland, etc...) and then to England (more in the north - Scotland, but also the west - Wales and south - the Brettons) and then Ireland.


Sorry for the diatribe, but it's one of those things that gets under my skin...

I never knew that... Sid Meier lied to me! :evil: The Celts and the Vikings were 2 different civs.

About the guy... I imagine him without the helmet or the beard with a kroot type rifle.
Sometimes I play all the Elves. Sometimes I play Eldar or IG. But between school and warhammer, how's a fella supposed to eat?

I might change the helmet around to a wolfshead (skin) wich seems to fit their fluff better also. Without the helmet it doesn't look like a viking that much. Beard is staying though, I can't picture real men caring about their appearance too much when everyday is a struggle for survival. Besides it kinda fits their wolvieness I guess.
