Someone was complaining about siege equipment - did you change it since then to show the wood and metal board reminiscent of a siege tower's lowered front? 

Honestly, i'd be happier if they'd gotten there through some sorcerous trick - it would make the expressions of the middenlanders make much more sense if they thought it was impossible for the enemy to get over the walls.

That said, Chaos never wins, because Chaos is dumb.  I'm sure the good Sigmarites on that wall spitted those chaos boys on their halberds and drove them from the wall.

Oops - sorry about this belated reply... yes, I did change it.
Sorcery, eh - an interesting thought. Still, it might be a tough sell to those who'd prefer a more mundane method for taking the ramparts :)

I have to say the Empire guys looks pretty though themselves, but fueled with Khorne power, the fight could get interesting. Good paintjob and sense of intensety but the anatomy of the flying guy is a bit too funky.

This is what makes me still hope for DeviantART: The well made and distinctly personal GW fanart. It is so obviously your own, whilst you keep with the GW imagery and icons. It is so obviously Warhammer and no other fantasy setting. I wouldn't have been surprised to see something like this in an Army Book from GW, to be honest. It holds up to that quality.

Love the hint of good old "red vs. blue" in it too!

Well, now that's an awesome work. You must have spend a good deal of time doing it, because the amount of detail and quality of rendering is just oustanding. And while the emperials look especially great, I'm a bit curious about the norse. If they are climbing on ladders - they shouldn't be able to jump like that - and if they have a tower of some kind - it should be visible. Maybe you have an explanation for this and I'm just bitching - because this is a truly terrific work, one of your best. And most people won't even notice this problem with a jumping norseman.

Have you ever thought about making a larger battle scene? Of course, it would be a demanding task, but I think it could be painfully jaw-dropping.

First of all, thanks for the comments! I agree that the invisibility of proper siege machinery is a bit of a problem. The original idea was siege ladders combined with bloodlust-induced superhuman vigour propelling the warriors over the crenellations of the fortress as if it were a children's sandcastle...
In fact, part of a siege ladder is still visible behind the neck of the halberdier in the lower left corner - it just vanished from view almost entirely as I hammered the composition into shape.
But I think your critique is entirely valid.

I think I may have a solution for the problem...
As to the idea of making a larger battle scene - thanks for the confidence! I must put that into consideration.
