Panzer Corps Grand Campaigns Trees Art

Post by Philkian » Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:53 am

Next week Panzer Corps Mega Pack will be on store!

To celebrate the impending release, we are releasing one hand–crafted Campaign Tree, created by artist Alexandra Pacuretu (known also as Taly), per day. The images shows the complete list of branching scenario with possible outcomes for each Grand Campaign from ’39 to ’45 (East and West).

Hope you will appreciate this exclusive content!

1939: Germany launches its military invasion of Poland. Take command of the Blitzkrieg’s spearhead as you battle your way to the heart of the Polish nation, the Capitol of Warsaw, and beyond. In the painting below, German tanks rumble forward through a battered Polish village en route to Warsaw as Messerschmitt Bf-110s provide close air support
Image

1940: The Maginot Line, shield of France and the battleship on land, was supposed to be impenetrable, but the Germans have a secret and daring plan aimed to topple their old enemy!

In this painting, a French counterattack launched against the Sedan bridgehead is hammered by fire from dreaded German 88mm guns.

Image


1941: The largest invasion in the history of the world, Operation Barbarossa, is about to begin! Before it can, however, the Balkans must be secured!

In this painting, a convoy of Soviet tanks, aircraft, and an armored train cross through the Ural Mountains on their way to reinforce the desperate defense of Moscow in the winter of 1941.


Image

1942: Poland, Norway, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, France, Yugoslavia, and Greece. All of these nations have fallen under occupation, and it was assumed that Russia would quickly join their ranks. Not only has the Russia Bear survived the invasion of 1941, but its winter offensive is still in full swing!

In this painting, a motley assortment of German forces marshal for another foray against Soviet forces entrenched in the ruins of Stalingrad as Messerschmitt Bf-109 fighters scream overhead.


Image

1942/43 West: Set during WWII on the Western Front, Germany is now facing the Western Allies as they engage in campaigns of hit and run raids to gather intelligence and probe their costal defences for weaknesses.

In this painting, Messerschmitt Bf-109s and Focke Wulf FW-190s of the Luftwaffe engage American fighters and heavy bombers over the shores and cities of Italy.

Image


1943 East: The war on the Eastern Front continues! Following the stunning reversal at Stalingrad, the Wehrmacht seeks to regain the initiative in the East with fierce counterattacks led by brand new Panther and Tiger tanks!

In this painting, German heavy armor is poised to begin the fateful assault against the fortified positions at Kursk while a Ju-87G Stuka swoops in for a kill.

Image

1944 East: The debacle at Stalingrad called into question the Wehrmacht's ability to win the war, but did Kursk confirm they would lose it? Or can the vaunted German Panzer Corps turn the tide at this critical hour?

In this painting, the Luftwaffe and Red Air Force struggle over the twilight skies of Warsaw as a pair of super heavy Karl Mortars and a railroad gun prepare to assault the uprising Polish forces within the city.

Image


1944 West: The Allies are returning to Europe in the largest naval invasion in history, and with them opens a Second Front!

In this painting, a British Sherman Firefly tank rolls on to the beaches of Normandy with a formidable backdrop of Allied warships and barrage balloons.

Image


1945 East: As Soviet forces close in from the East, the Wehrmacht prepares its forces to defend East Prussia, Poland, and the home soil of Germany itself.

In this painting, the last armored remnants of the German Wehrmacht fight from the shadow of the ruined Reichstag building in Berlin in a final act of defiance against advancing Soviet forces.

Image


1945 West: Surrounded by enemies on all sides, the once mighty German Wehrmacht faces ultimate defeat on the eve of 1945. Little do the Allies suspect that deep underground in secret bunkers, German scientists and engineers have built an arsenal of wonder weapons to turn the tide of the war!

In this painting, a sleek and deadly Jagdpanther tank destroyer blitzes through the snow covered Ardennes forest toward Antwerp as a flight of new and highly advanced Gotha Go-229 Flying Wings soars above.

We're back, and new art is resuming!

This latest image, the artist and I lamented over this one. That great looking P-51 gets hidden away by the text, and there's a fantastic looking bf-109 right under the word 'Grand'. Alas, the campaign tree was more important than trying to fit these aircraft. ;)

Once the full set is out, I might see about releasing all of these pieces in their art only form, so stay tuned!

I myself have enjoyed these images a lot. Looking forward to having them released without the campaign trees as well.

And finally a word for the artist: Felicitari Taly! :)

These are 1st class. I am also looking forward to them being released as just the art work.

1 minor point :- the discribtion for 43 East should read "Counterattacks led by" Not Counterattacks lead by"

My favorite part in this image was that nice Sherman Firefly, artist did a superb job with it. Favorite part of the image for the artist are the balloons... I told 'em balloons are okay though, because they're barrage balloons. :P

If I had to choose a favorite, it would definitely be 45 West. The Jagdpanther and Gothas are amazingly well drawn, and everything fits perfectly even with the rather large Campaign Tree sitting atop of the image. In fact, playing with the layers on this particular image produces pretty interesting results as well!

Image

Now that all 10 Grand Campaign images are released, I'll maybe see about releasing the art only version of these images. ;)

Also worth mentioning; all of these material should soon be available right in the Panzer Corps Library, coming soon in an upcoming patch! :D

Thank you so much for this.
I have never come across a company that provides the level of service you do with patches and updates, and you listen to your customers.
Awesome.

And thanks to the community for providing the self-made campaign trees, they were a great help to me.

It's a sticky, I don't think you can necro a sticky. :P

Nice to see more fans of the art though, this was something extra special I really wanted to have done for the Grand Campaign and I'm really happy how it turned out! :D
