All of creation suffers, young ones. Only in accepting our own mortality can we make a difference. Only in bearing the burden of our failures can we find the strength to go on. Only in detachment from glory, or honour, or jealousy... from life itself can we hope to spare others from grief.
We are Doom Eagles. And we are dead already.
The Art of Clint Langley Paperback: 96 pages Publisher: Games Workshop; Black Library (May 13, 2008) ISBN-10: 1844165183
Clint Langley is a well–known figure in the world of science fiction and fantasy art. His illustrations for the Black Library, creating jaw–dropping images for the Games Workshop worlds of Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000, has become a fine body of art. Creator of numerous novel covers and over a hundred collectable card game images, Clint’s work has wowed Games Workshop fans for years, his hyper–real style and gritty sensibilities perfectly in tune with the grim vistas he portrays. Together with commentary by authors such as Dan Abnett and Graham McNeill, this fantastic collection, dedicated to the dark worlds of Games workshop, is exhibited in full colour and for the first time.
This book contains beautiful color reproductions of some of the best art by Clint Langley. Combining illustrations from both the Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 game universes.
He has numerous paintings on covers in Black Library Books and on Combat Card Game.
Combining the paintings there are several commentaries by some of the book authors.
I think he can portrait the feeling that Warhammer 40k gives you...
One of my favourite book covers was portrait by him... Storm of Iron.
This book will give you almost no insight on the Warhammer or Warhammer 40k. But my the vivid images you can get the picture that the future does look grimm. Grimm, Dark and Hopelessness.
