Good artwork indeed.
WAR artwork in general is good, if maybe sometimes too clean and egotrippy.
The Grim and Perilous of v1 has definitely been standardised and made more commercial.
Ian Miller and John Blanche had made stellar work for v1 and the cover of the v1 rulebook had this gory sense of humour I've come to associate with WFRP.
Now, everycharacter looks powerful and mean, selfabsorbed and narcissic too. A bit too much like the fop heroes of DnD to my taste.
Stop acting so damn cool ! You got a living to make, and the Old World is a pitiless place to make it in !
This artwork still is very good, just a bit to close to the WotC look (and graphic design, for that matter) for me.
As long as what is written in the books is good, artwork can diverge, I don't mind that.
As with background, I only use the art that fits into my game and its tone.
