If the hobgoblin looks familiar to you, there’s a reason. The final version has more details of what “grappling with weapons” can mean – she’s stepping on the hob’s spear to pin it in place, as well as using her own shield to trap his left arm.
Because it’s Roland, all of the equipment and stances are historical and accurate, modeled off of real pieces. The detail is phenomenal.
I simply cannot wait to see the entire full-page piece.
If we hit the bit stretch goals at the top end, there will be more of this type of illustration in the book!
