    Great stuff - Thanks for the post! I have never seen this pic. before. Being a big fan of the DH "Tales of the Jedi" comics back in the day, this is especially nice.

    Since there were quite a few SW illustrations from WEG re: their sourcebooks, I wouldn't mind seeing an "Art of" book with all of these sketches & art included, as well as related artwork - even though they're all just b&w, these are quite impressive.

    Oh thank you. Him and Janine Johnston made Tales Of The Jedi awesome.

    One of the best SWAJ was #3. I posted Purr from that earlier:

    She is the the Chewbacca of this guy, Dannen Lifehold:

    And that is Tawn Porew from the story that introduced them. From that story comes Commander Brion Peck, a Rebel(And I lol because my bootcamp commander was named Peck):

    This issue has a great chapter on powered armor and gave what looks like a Smaus Aran ripoff, the Dragon armor:

    Exar Kun leading an army of Nazgul would have been way better than Exar Kun leading an army of kids who went evil because they got stuck with some devil plastic.

    OF COURSE you bought Voren.

    Of course.

    And OF COURSE I bought the Tiss'shar.

    My favorite Star Wars character, and my favorite Star Wars species.

    I have a complex relationship with Voren. In many ways, he's the Rebel version of me...

    Inveterate apologist, unafraid to distort historical truth whenever it suits his ideological purposes? [face_thinking]

    Adventure Journal #9:

    [IMG]

    Cockpit in the middle. Like many I wondered what that would look like.

    [IMG]

    Zoodia Tantra, a disgruntled TIE Bomber pilot. She looks like Uma Thurman.

    [IMG]

    Commander Glave.

    This issue also featured the stats for a basic Firespray spacecraft.

    I have not viewed the whole thing but in looking up the Firespray thing I found THIS Enjoy.

    Huh, wonder if that thing in AJ #9 inspired the Otana/YT-2000. Slightly different look, of course.

    I love the WEG stuff. Never played the RPG when they were around, but have picked up what I could secondhand and really enjoy reading it. Reading the Corporate Sector Handbook right now...

    It also could make "point five past lightspeed"(Hyperdrive multiplier X 1/2)!

    Here's what I consider to be the apex of WEG's ship designs. Ladies and Gentlebeings, I present the Chubby Gundark!

    Either these are pirates who had lots of fun painting their TIEs or Warlord forces!

    The ship is separate from the planet there but with the planet behind it it looks like a giant spider.
