Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

When you like Magic and Warhammer

I first found this image about 5 years ago, maybe more. I think I found it on Cool Mini or Not, and it’s been a long time since I last visited that website. Recently, the creator posted it to Reddit:

The concept here is great. The Magic card is called Life//Death:

It’s a card which gives you the option of two spells. One turns your land into creature, and the other returns a dead creature to life. The concept has been carried over to use Warhammer figures, with dryads representing the Life half of the card, and skeletons representing the Death. The miniatures are clearly in conflict, representing the opposite nature of each half of this spell.

Great concept, great execution.

    I figured there was going to be a punch line something akin to “…then you are poor.”

    Very well executed. I wouldn’t want to carry them Round though!

      No, I think this is something you have to leave in the display cabinet!

    That is really neat- great idea to physical represent the card like that.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

      Yes, the concept was great and of course the execution was brilliant too.

    That’s a very clever idea, I like that. Magic is a bit of a closed book to me I’m afraid although I always really enjoy the art you post here. Really like what they’ve done with that piece though and the dryads in particular are very well painted, not sure if I could copy them exactly as and when I get around to painting mine but I’m definitely inspired to try.

      I often think that liking the art only is a good way of keeping distance from Magic, which can otherwise eat through your wallet as quickly as Games Workshop!

    I’ve been lucky enough seen this one before (probably on CMON) and I think it is a really clever concept. You become accustomed to seeing 2D art on Magic cards and to see it “come to life” really has a powerful effect on the viewer!
