When I was 12 I picked up a magazine at the mall. It featured 43 pages of Warhammer characters. Quickly this magazine became one of my treasures. I was a kid and we had very little money for toys, let alone something like Warhammer. Yet day after day I would sit and read each page, look at each figure and marvel at the detail. It was simply cool.
To this day I still haven’t bought any Warhammer figures, although I am still amazed by the art, hence my choice in direction for a game I’m working on. I’m changing from my initial design to more of a table top style. This is an example of the updated style:
I’m focusing on each character having a little platform they sit on, and they will have a pose that they hold. Another reason for this style is to cut down on animation time, as character animation was eating into my game development time.
