Flash Dune Characters by Norsehound Flash Dune Characters by Norsehound
Putting together a game for my portfolio. Hopefully it'll show my skills as a game designer and as an artist. When it's finished it'll be a print-and-play game which I'll put up here and on Boardgamegeek.

Trying to find a middleground between Avalon Hill's 1978 Dune and Dune Express.

To be clear it's not going to be a Flash game. I just can't find another word that best fits...

What kinda game was Flash Dune gonna be? Was dice rolling gonna be the primary mechanism or board control?

It's been a while since I touched the concept but I think Flash Dune was going to be some kind of easier to play version of Dune Express or something. Dice rolling for action determination?

Too bad it never got finished. But I can relate with projects that never get done. :)

Even if you never finish your own ruleset, it'd be cool if you used your Dune art to make of a pnp version of Dune or Dune Express.

That's the cutest little Leto I've seen.

Leto? That's Paul. Don't you see the radiance of prescience around his head? :)

Actually for me its like Paul is saying "holy crap I am a flash character!"
And the guild masters like "Alpha give me five teenagers with attitude!"
And the Sadakaar is like "yo dude look at my boomstick!"

o: Afcourse.

Egh I get my Atreides mixed. Honestly I haven't touched one of the novels in half a decade, should reread again.

It's not hard when there are two Letos in the course of the series, and not many Atredies are clear-cut in the latter books.

That's not a Bene Gesserit. That's Tleilaxu Facedancers.

Also, dammit, that was meant as a response to Arioch above. :В Either way, this is positively great!

Nope. I have something special in mind for the Face Dancers. I'll post it when they're ready :)

Do I detect a "Journey" inspiration in the Bene Gesserit design? :D

I Like the Fremen.

I love that they're based on Lynch's movie, it may not have made any sense, but it has awesome visual design!

Not entirely... the Harkonnen blue/red comes from the books, the Bene Geserit aren't bald, and the Fremen heads are covered.

There's some other art out there with Sardaukar covered in head to toe in black with faceplates, though the purple here is a rough allusion to the corrino house colors.

The navigator fish was just too fun to pass up.

Cool! (Sardaukar and Fremen are most cool)
Reminds Kwanchai's art or Lego maybe.
