Evolution of war games prints

games4.jpg

Months. Years. The better part of puberty.

We can't be sure exactly how much time we've spent (/wasted) playing some form of war game, but we regret nothing. Apart from that time we put that Space Marine up against an Eldar Wraithknight...

Paris-based illustrator Patrick Connan clearly had a similarly misspent youth/adulthood. His triptych set War Game Evolution captures our transition through the genre's major outlets: role playing games to boardgames, boardgames to first-person shooters.

Part of Geek-Art.net's Geek Generation exhibition in Bourges, you can pick up a print here.
