Origins Game Fair: War College 2012 by Everwho Origins Game Fair: War College 2012 by Everwho

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!

You did an awesome job on that pic. I really like on how you put an U.S. Army Ranger to help Washington and the rest win the war. You should keep doing something like that next time. I really enjoy your work man. Keep up the good work.

You're welcome and what I mean by next time is that you should do another one.

You mean another time-travel Revolutionary War pic?  Well, this was done specifically for the 2012 Origins Game Fair convention, which had a time-travel theme that year.  Specifically, it's a parody of an existing piece of art, so it's unlikely I'll be doing anything else relating to it.  Time-travel is a fun subject, though, so you never know.  :-)  I did do other pieces relating to the Origins War College, although they weren't time-travel related, since Origins theme changes every year.  They were steampunk and comic books, respectively.  Links to those are in the description, above.  Together, these three form something of a related series of war-themed pieces.

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.
