Warhammer: Uthwe Cobra Tank by mikkow Warhammer: Uthwe Cobra Tank by mikkow
A commission for Games Workshop.

It features an Eldar "Uthwe" Cobra Superheavy grav-tank.

Lots of hours. Photoshop CS2. Detailing whoring beyind the call of duty. :lol: No one should be able to complain about the lack of detail here.

Edit: Forgot some details, especially on the main gun.

I saw the thumbnail on this and thought it was a model.
Still having trouble seeing it as a digital art piece. It look so realistic.

I love the sense of speed you have in this piece. It’s easy to add motion blur but not easy to create something balanced like this.

I`ve been browsing around the GW sites and can`t find the pic so I guess it has to have been a forum I saw it on, now to find out which.....

Well, I did do GW/Sabertooth Games work by contract for them, but it's not exactly 'in house'. Where did you see it? :O Are you serious? I haven't seen it anywhere but I don't visit much GW websites to begin with. I'm very, veeery keen on seeing them used/posted somewhere! Try to remember any details you can of it, please. :)

This is good work. I've spent the last twenty minutes squinting at this pic and one of my models. Your accuracy is pretty good. (The big difference being that my model is in the Biel-Tan colour scheme.)

Like the idea of a heavy armor eldar tank but dont they already got a prism tank...if the game has a new unit i has to be balenced into the whole game and every other race will need a equvelent <--- spelled that wrong

i still think your art rocks keep it up

there's a newer, much better model of the cobra, this is based on the older Forge World/Epic one.

it's a great painting, again the sense of scale is a bit hard to see. I'm just critical cos I'm jealous, wish someone would pay me to paint GW stuff :p

mikkow Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2006
haw haw.. :) What about the cockpit window? I think the canopy does give an acceptable level of scale. Not many of the warhammer things are easy to wrap your head around - even the marines are heaaaps taller than normal humans.

mikkow Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2006
I think the design is pretty cool! I saw some others called 'falcons', not sure how old/new those are but they seemed to ahve been around for more than a few months at least, and I love them as well. All the eldar tanks look really cool and are great fun to paint (as opposed to space ships. .gawd). They look more sleep and aircraft like (I love aircraft, not to be confused with space ships looking like cathedrals :P )

dukeleto Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oh yeah the falcon is the "basic" design from which the others are derived (as any Imperial vehicle is gonna be based on a Rhino or Chimaera) but the super heavies are obviously scaled up somewhat. The original Forge World designs were a bit doorstop-like, but the "mk.II" version of the scorpion is MUCH nicer. [link]
that's REALLY sleek.

:iconmikkow:
mikkow Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2006
To be honest, that model is what I first thought to be the older version, and the previous version was the 'newest' - because I simply think the previous generation gravtanks look so much more realistic and perfectly shaped. Just like how the latest generation marine tanks look heaps more believable than the previous ones. :D
