Viking assault on the Twin Cities- GP Minneapolis by Alayna Viking assault on the Twin Cities- GP Minneapolis by Alayna
This is the playmat for the upcoming Magic: The Gathering tournament, the Grand Prix Minneapolis in May.

The towers are actual towers from St. Paul and Minneapolis and the river between them the Mississippi... and they're being attacked by vikings. =) oh Minnesota

The first 750 players who attend will get this playmat! They'll definitely run out so get there early.

Minnesota Vikings? Lol.

I bet they slaughtered some bears and lions, and maybe pillaged some cheese shops on the way to this invasion.

wow, the warriors moving towards the tower across the river and into hell, look very impressive there is so much detail and deepness as well a mini story going on. The only thing that bothers me is the tower, the balcony makes the tower look closer than it is, or maybe some giants live there. It looks odd, because there is nothing to help to undertand the real size of that thing, like little windows or something.

Great painting! I wish I could do something like this.
