Defence of Caen finished by Kwibl Defence of Caen finished by Kwibl
The cityscale and certain other things reeeeally bothered me in the older piece, went back and updated it and threw in some really subtle colour. Updating older stuff to throw together a portfolio soon ready for Gamescom next month.

------

If the city falls, any hopes of keeping the fighting on the french side of the channel are crushed.

3 mechs wait in a canal, ready to respond as heavy cavalry during the defense of Caen. Reports are that the enemy has moved into the outer city and so far overwhelmed the armour elements deployed in the more open sections of the city with superior airpower. The fighting to come is going to be close up and personal in the tight streets and high buildings that make up the center. The high buildings, narrow streets and deep canals offer protection from the aerial threat, but urban combat is always a bloody nightmare.

Your artwork is simply incredible, and I absolutely love the small stories you put behind them. It gives such life and meaning. Great work! ^^

Is this part of any type of established universe? The back-story implies so......

Not a universe no, i usually just like to contextualise illustrations with a story.

It might get fleshed out more, i've wanted to do this idea of a war in Europe set a few hundred years in the future, but i've not got much time for personal work right now.

It's pretty interesting you say that actually, the background setting was basically meant to be a bit of a throw back to the world wars.
