Call of Cthulhu, Arkham horror by henning Call of Cthulhu, Arkham horror by henning

This is the cover box illustration for Fantasy Flight Games table top / board game expansion for Arkham Horror, named Dunwich Horror, which is based on the worlds of renowned horror master H.P. Lovecraft.
We got this request just before christmas, so I brought my laptop with me when I visited my parents so that I could workon on the piece. It was quite strange sitting in my little room again, hehe...

Michael Komark made the illustration for the previous Arkham Horror box, so we had some pretty damn big shoes to fill when making this one :-)

My girlfriend :iconkyena: made the conceptual sketch, so this is the first painting we’ve worked together on :-)

Painted during quite a few evenings using Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. Reference used for the characters.

Painted december 2005.

Things I'm not allowed to do in tabletop games anymore #840: Even if it would have immediately solved the last six ordeals, I will not throw dynamite into every well we come across.

My cousin made me sign a thing that listed "Things Mr. Welch is no longer allowed to do in a tabletop game." He claimed I did most of them.

Wasn't "Arkham Horror" unique as the first game where no player could die before the end? Even if that meant crawling around as...

*humming* *humming* "This is radio Arkham - broadcast by those who survived. We are no longer unscathed yet we give it one more try... This is radio Arkham - please be prepared to survive! Alien Evil is rising - schemes to violate every life..." Inspired by "Radio Orchid".
