Thread: The only piece of Europa Barbarorum II fanart in existence

    Default The only piece of Europa Barbarorum II fanart in existence



    Until any more art is produced by EBII fans, this drawing of a historically accurate Polybian Velite holds the title of "The only piece of Europa Barbarorum II fanart in existence". Don't like it? Make your own EBII fanart. And it better be as historically accurate as my drawing

    Good news! The title of "The only piece of Europa Barbarorum II fanart in existence" no longer exists, thanks to a kind contribution of EBII fanart by myself. You will be pleased to learn that Total War fans will no longer be introduced to Europa Barbarorum II by a wolf girl abomination

    As a fan of history I for one can appreciate your dedication to accuracy and historicity.

    You did a good job with the hands in the second one too, nicely done.

    Here is a hand-drawn depiction of a Seleucid Somatophylakes at the battle of Ipsus in 301BC, based on the wonderful digital piece of a Companion Cavalryman by Joan Francesc Oliveras Pallerols.

    Very beautiful drawings! There's just one thing I have to mention though. Extensive genome analyses of peoples living in the Mediterranean and Middle East have revealed that humans share much more genes with other organisms than previously thought. This is corroborated by openings in helmets and breastplates previously attributed to battle damage or degradation. Furthermore all portrayals of soldiers whether in paintings or pottery are tainted by damage or corrections centered near the top of the head and rear. Almost as if censored by the ashamed artist or dubious archaeologist. What I'm saying is that everyone in the past are kemono and that this Household boy should be more like a household cat. Cat ears and tail are required.

    Serious criticism: everything is perfect except for the guy's face. Is he watching 9/11 unfold in real time?

    Little known fact: The 2.35a release of Europa Barbarorum II includes a dating minigame (citation needed). If you can't afford the cost of a mercenary unit, take the captain out on a date and then the rest of the unit will happily accompany you on your campaign. This feature was brought to life by the dedication of programmers, playtesters, manga artists, and motion-cap actors who weren't really told that they were doing motion-cap

    Yeah I'm not sure what happened to the campaign AI in EBII 2.35a either. I mean, they have fox girls as diplomats instead of wolf girls? Outrageous. A wolf girl would offer the state of California AND Alabama in return for peace. A cunning AI is a dangerous opponent.

    There's no specific EBII unit.

    There's no historicity.

    There aren't any humans.

    I'm not even pretending anymore.

    As long as it's cute and can throw a javelin it's fine.

    The gloves are coming off. Machairafurroi are ready to gut you in the knees. Yes, these creatures are only 1 meter tall, so about the same height as the Greeks of Antiquity. Fear them.

    She shoot
    She stab
    But most importantly







    She was grown inside of a lab. Thureopherontes Toxotai, against the mighty nomads of the steppe, are ready to die at a slightly slower pace than normal Toxotai

    I've seen almost this exact depiction in a mural once. Masterly Shoebopp. Masterly.

    This Hyperaspistai is seeking a 1v1 duel outside of her traditional Hoplitai phalanx. Now she's dead.
