Angus McBride

Sad to hear of the loss of the artist/illustrator, Angus McBride, yesterday.

If you had any of ICE's "Lord of the Rings" role-playing books (or "The Hobbit" version), then you'll be aware with his work. Of course, if you own any of the Osprey military history books, chances are some will have been illustrated by Angus McBride.

For me, he placed believable characters in a historical setting, rather than painting figures on blank canvas. I'll miss his work.
