Origins Game Fair: War College 2012 by Everwho Origins Game Fair: War College 2012 by Everwho
"Washington Crossing The Delaware... With a U.S. Army Ranger!" or "A Bad Day For Hessians"
Origins Game Fair promotional artwork
Copic marker and colored pencil on paper, digital
Client: GAMA/Origins Game Fair
2012 Talon Dunning

This was done for the Origins Game Fair convention program, specifically for the section on the War College, a series of talks revolving around wars, both real and imagined. It is, of course, based on the iconic painting by Emanuel Leutze. The theme for the 2012 Origins convention is "time travel," which explains the presence of the U.S. Army Ranger on the boat. I'm sure that won't cause any problems with the timeline whatsoever... Paradox? We're the Special Forces, Son! Paradox can suck it. Hooah!

Preliminary sketch and my contributions for 2011 and 2013.

I expect the modern Ranger would have helped greatly against the British. But then, when depicting the Brits, maybe you should incorporate a Royal Marine Commando! :)

Sure, if I were depicting Brits.  This is just Americans, though, Americans going to fight German mercenaries at that.

Interesting that those mercs later came to South Africa. I believe they fought quite well in the US, but not here. Maybe they preferred the cold?
