Have Hatchet Will Travel

Dwarf with Big Hatchet

This little character has an axe to grind–a big axe.  I drew this way back in 2011 and always meant to color it, but never got around to it.  I had a lot of fun with this drawing and let myself play with the details like the belt buckle and armor.  He’s got a little Paul Bonner vibe without the mustache and a touch of Rackham’s flavor–the French game company; not the author/illustrator. I was into their stuff when I had a minor wargame addiction and was disappointed the game never really got traction in the United States.

If you haven’t checked out Paul Bonner’s art book Out of the Forests: The Art of Paul Bonner, I highly recommend it. It’s one of my favorites. Look for a book review soon!
