Your foe is well equipped, well-trained, battle-hardened. He believes his gods are on his side. Let him believe what he will. We have the tanks on ours.


I tried to blend the styles of Advance Wars, Medal. Honor Infiltrator and even a little bit of Panzer Corps with this piece.

I haven't really done a proper mock-up in quite some time because I suck at doing sprites and tiles, but one can never get better without leaving the comfort zone..

Ohh, and there are never enough skulls and rivets, especially rivets!



Edited out the craters to make the ground less distracting. Thanks to jal and drawingman.

I am trying to fav this work, but nothing happens, when I press the button.

@ worship

Me too! Thanks a bunch. :)

@ Lindion45

That's the reaction I was hoping for while planing this piece, thanks! :)

Worship (Level 1 Seaman) @ 7/12/2015 03:00

Love 40k and love the Advance Wars series, so this is amazing.

redmilion (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/11/2015 12:19

wow me hizo recordar cuando hacia dibujos asi en papel

Lindion45 (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 6/4/2015 04:51

Reminds me of advanced wars!

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/18/2015 10:52

Thanks a lot! :)

CreatureMind (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/17/2015 13:53

Wow wow wow this looks so perfect! nice job!

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/14/2015 13:05

@ sjhwi1a

I think that's not even orky enough.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/14/2015 13:03

@ madoo

I'm not the Emperor of Mankind you don't have to bow. Thank you anyway! :D

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/14/2015 13:02

@ BathMaster_2000

Thank you very much, bath.

It could look even sweeter if I weren't such a lazy bugger. ;)

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/14/2015 13:00

@ orange08

Cool you like it, thanks. :)

sjhwi1a (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 1/13/2015 16:22

2 hellhounds, 3 lemans, 2 Basilisks + some infantry VS 6 orks and 4 Gretchins. Seems unfair.

madoo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/13/2015 09:17


BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/13/2015 08:46

Man, this looks sweeeet.

orange08 (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 1/13/2015 06:40

this does look like a lot of fun!

@ Theoden

Hehe, thanks!

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/12/2015 08:34

@ bobston

Thanks a lot, chap!

There is a ton of space for improvements. I really need to work on getting better with tiles and textures.

Great you like that single rock. :P

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/11/2015 14:27

Awesome Warhammer 40K art! I am sold :)

king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 1/11/2015 09:31

The sprites are very nice, especially the tanks and orks. I'm not a fan of your tiles through, the dark bits in the sand look more like noise than a texture. The flat rocky area works fine I think. The water and the rocks themselves look a bit lazy through (althrough that isolated rock, rocks!).

I would love to play an Advance Wars like Warhammer game.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/11/2015 03:35

@ ADrawingMan

Thank you very much for the crit! Cool you like it!

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/11/2015 03:30

@ jal

Thank you very much!

I reworked the ground to make it less distracting.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/10/2015 19:55

Oh, this is epic! I do think the darker pixels on the ground are too noticeable imo. The characters are really well pixelled, great job with this.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/10/2015 16:13

The GUI is beautiful. Game area is cool but the Moon craters on the yellow I find distracting.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/10/2015 14:59

Thanks a ton, mate! I'm glad you dig it. :)

I tried to keep the sprites as close to the miniatures as possible.

Cheers for the hint on "Leeman"

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/10/2015 14:50

Brilliant! Would play the hell out of this! All the units are very recognisable and crisp, they look awesome. As someone who knows these models very well, I'm astonished how many details you managed to replicate at such a small scale. It's "Leman Russ" though ;)
