Omaha beach - 1815 by JanBoruta Omaha beach - 1815 by JanBoruta
6th June 1815. British Royal Marines perform a landing operation in Normandy in order to distract the Napoleonic forces from the oncoming struggle between them and the Coalition in Belgium. They never knew tha some 130 years in the future there will occur a battle strikingly similar to one they participate in... :3

...

I had this idea several months ago, but I managed to realise it today and it's a result of pure boredom :D

I couldn't resist to add those balloons :3

This took me about 3 ~ 3,5 hours. HB and 2B mechanical pencils.

Enjoy!
Tom :D

PS. Ah, Vyse is the leader here. :3

When I saw this, the first thing I thought of was Washington crossing the Delaware. Do't know why.

I think they just come on their own and I've got nothing to say, but draw.

Gdyby nie ta brytyjska flaga to bym pomyślał, że to Waszyngton przekracza Potomac. :D Scena jak z tego znanego obrazu.

Bravo, you've inspired me now! LOL i'm gonna have to do womething suitably epic!

you know, this picture is perfectly feasible, though the british army baloon corps was decades away, britain did have baloons, and there was always chance of a landing in france, though the beaches wouldnt be so heavily defended.

as for the hats, i love tricornes, put it down to personal preference, shako's were the rage, but if i were leading them, they'd wear tricornes! :D

anyway, awesome as ever mate! :D

A-ha, thanks for the comment'n'fave! :D

This concept disturbed me for a really long time, I couldn't wait more to realise it :3 But it's not that epic than your WW1 scenes :o But I'll try to make the ink version even more intense, but maybe without balloons :D

And I'm glad you like the historically inaccurate tricornes... I love them too :D

im thinking btw, that our army on devia might have a primitive baloon fleet, - dropping barrels of gunpowder :D

"This machinery is crude", if I may quote Lord Vader. But effective. Freaky idea with those balloons on Devia, I approve ;) But the point is not to abuse them :D

Gdybym był złośliwy to bym powiedział, że warto się przyjrzeć postom poniżej, ale tyle powiem, że uzbrojeniem są muszkiety w łapach lotników i małe granaty odpalane lontem :P
