first off please don't stone me for asking this,

I have been looking through some of the artwork from fifth ed WFB and have noticed on some of the pictures the initials MG does anyone know who this person is as I was planning on using some of his artwork to make a new sculpt but would like to get his permission (and also some other pictures of help if he has any)

The guy is Mark Gibbons - a quick search doesn't bring up a site for him - but if it's for any GW IP you're making the sculpt be careful - all teh pictures are TM of GW....

Hope this helps.

His name is Mark Gibbons, he used to work for GW, went away, came back briefly then disappeared. he now works in computer games.

now you compare that to the model and artwork for the 6th edition version of Kroak and all I can say is Oh dear!

And while we're at it, here's a handful of sites from other GW artists who were at the studio at the same time as Mark and have moved on to pastures new:

I prefer 6th ed. Kroak. Not as OTT and cartoony.
