Fire Everything by AdamBurn Fire Everything by AdamBurn
A print of this painting can be bought here [link]


So here it is finally, my Battlefleet Gothic painting done as a birthday present for my brother, Took a long time to get everything how I wanted it but there is always room for improvement but I wont be working on this one any more.

Simple scene depicting a fight against the Imperial fleet and the forces of Chaos, it shows a light frigate class ship on a collision course with the Imperial fleets capitol ship and firing of a load of missiles as it goes, also it under heavy fire from light weapons. The capitol ship can also be seen firing its huge side mounted cannon arrays at something, but what? a ship that size firing that many shots must be very keen of destroying what ever it is, and that frigate is damn keen on keeping the ship from firing. I will leave that to your imagination. Background shows a few skirmishes and a broadside going on..... everyone loves a bit of broadside action.

Enjoy and Happy Birthday Bro this ones for you.

It’s rare to find such great artwork, more so when it depicts both space and originality.

While the image might make one person think of ground based combat (due to just how well the background was designed) after taking a closer look you'll notice that it truly is in space.

The background itself is actually well drawn though it’s somewhat hard to tell if the 'trails' are actually con-trails from fighter craft, or actually cities lit up in the night sky or perhaps even missiles trying to find their targets.

The artwork overall is excellent, the explosions well drawn and even the trails of the weapon projectiles fading into the distance are spectacular.

Equally as great, is how detailed the ships are even those in the background. The foreground ship actually looks more like a floating city but is obviously a ship, based on a background ship that looks similar. Someone already pointed this out, but I will as well, the coloring here is great and shows that a great deal of time and effort went into this piece.
What do you think?
