The Dark Lord Balbaroth by jflaxman The Dark Lord Balbaroth by jflaxman
Unlike many aspiring dark lords, Balbaroth is a brilliant tactician with a horde of loyal followers. Unfortunately he suffers from a severe speech impediment and his favourite helmet makes him almost unintelligible. In the heat of battle his plans rapidly deteriorate, leaving him gesticulating and yelling ineffectually while his subordinates cause chaos.

This pic was a lot of fun. The design's a bit super-deformed Frazetta and I looked at one of his Death Dealer paintings to get a feel for the colour. Most of my traditional work doesn't scan very well but this one turned out better than most.

No I think you really made this one your own. Great job. I'm glad it scanned well, I hate having to fiddle with those damned things.

I'll bet if he started chopping off a few heads people would start listening a whole lot more carefully. :D

Damn it, I remember them! Goes to show I'm getting old.

Those designs worked a whole lot better than the pseudo-Assyrian look they tried later, I'm amazed they never brought out a proper army list.
