Wow, not bad!  Both the drawing from memory, and the tracking down of the original.  Impressive!  :D

That's why it looked familiar to most here.  It is quite a famous painting :)

Can't quite place that, but it looks familiar.

I don't think I have seen that before.

Where was it commercially used?


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

It was also the inspiration for a popular Ral Partha figurine. Image

This is it! Thanks so much for finding this for me!

Now, where the heck can I get a print of this?

OK; that's just a tad better, Mark! Seemed to be out of stock in most of the online shops, so I fell back to eBay. Lazy, lazy... :)

Thanks again everyone! I just ordered the print from Mars's link!

So happy to finally have this iconic piece of fantasy artwork on its way after all these years!

It's going right above my miniature-painting table :)

I'll have to send an e-mail to my uncle so he can have his memory jogged (he didn't even remember ever having this poster on his door).

Cheers!
