Barbarians. Knights. Tribal warriors. All very manly men with their armour and swords and scowls, all very much a speciality of Finnish concept artist Ville-Valtteri Kinnunen.

Now employed at BioWare, Kinnunen has worked on games like Dragon Age 2, Age of Conan and the criminally under-appreciated Warhammer 40K: Squad Command.


Working on a Conan property must be an artist's dream come true. I mean, I know there are some conventions to stick to, but a pre-historic setting seems to bring out the best in designers, more so than a straight-up fantasy universe ever does.
