BREAKING NEWS: Concept art from unreleased Wizard expansion!
11/16/11 at 12:46am
 
GREAT NEWS! I have written permission by Don Kueker to share his concept art for HeroQuest expansions at my website. It took some effort and patience to obtain this wonderful piece of history, but now I am glad I can share it with you. (Please do not reuse or republish the art because the copyrights still remain with Don.)

You can find the first image (Centaur) here: www.tocoking.be/ahq
(It is a quick picture I took, I will make nice scans of the art later.)

ENJOY!

More to follow: female Wizard, Skaven Clanrat, ...

Great job, Toco!
Looks like it has 3/3 multiple attack.  Or maybe 3/2 or 4/2.  Damn, I don't know.  And what's up with that thing's junk hanging out like Lady Ga-Ga?  I thought this was a kid's game. Huh

Two attacks probably yeah. And maybe something like "Trample". Or immunity to spells...

Looks like a new pic of the same Centaur.  That's definately a Minotaur underneath.  What kind of sword is it holding in it's left hand- a Shortsword, like the Centaur has?  What's in it's right hand...another axe like the Centaur?  You can make out the stance under the paper, hunching forward.   I wonder if it would balance as a figure.

The Elf in the pic definately looks like he's wearing Chain Mail.  That helps explain why Elven Warriors and Archers only have a Move of 6.

I realize I'm reaching here, but is there a drawing of the female Wizard barely visable under the Ratman (like the Minotaur that is partially visible under the Centaur)?  Those flaring lines under the Ratman's legs could be a dress or robes, and the horizontal lines under the Ratman's weapon arm could be an outstretched right arm.

Toco, are we gonna see all of these eventually?

I did this on purpose. To light the fire. Hehe, there's a minotaur under the centaur indeed. Yuk.

Next drawings to be added: Archmage (Quest for the Elf), alternate version of the Archer and Sword-Elf (they look like Dwarves...), Minotaur, a new four-footer, and the new Hero for "Quest for the Wizard".

Now since I have permission to share the sketches at my site. Will it be any easier for you to obtain any means to share images too ? ...

Looks like the miniature prototypes were for the Wizard's expansion and not the Dwarf's expansion. When I have uploaded all, you can maybe tell if there were more.

Lets see what comes up....and I have both it appears, Wizards and Dwarf Expansion....I can see what is underneath some of those drawings and those are also correct.  Like I said...the centaur is the only one not clicking.  I think that one may have been left out.  I will say the sculptors molded almost exactly to the pictures so far though.

That minotaur (not uploaded yet) look at lot like one of the D&D collectible miniatures.

So the Dwarf picture from Rick Grayson and the Sabretoooth (not uploaded yet) from Don Kueker would have gone into the "Quest for the Dwarf" then? Pfff, mysteries and enigma's... I've found a lot, but more questions arise...

The Minotaur, Skaven, female Wizard would go into the "Quest for the Wizard" then... possibly...

Three new concept sketches by Don Kueker online here: http://toco.be/ahq/unreleased/

SkyKnight, do the 4-up sculpts have different colors, or is there an indication to which expansion they would belong?

There are two color materials but dont recall if there was a pattern to em, I will check tonight.  BTW, I have seen all three of those minis you just showed in those exact poses.  I see you have still not uploaded all of your drawings, not sure how many more you have but I do have a fair amount of 4 ups not shown yet.

Female Wizard, (Giant) Spider, Elf Archer Henchman, Alternate (Dwarf?) Elf Sword Henchman, Archmage.

And I do have alterate versions of the Elf boxcover. No new figures there. Just pose variations.

Don Kueker does not have any more work on HeroQuest. Rick Grayson does not remember having done more than what is shown. So if you have more 4-ups, then who was the artist? Not Les Edwards, he only did covers.

ps: You say the centaur was never made. I noticed he resembles the Ogres. Maybe they initially wanted Centaurs, but went for the Ogres because they were allready sculpted for the EU expansion "Against the Ogre Horde". They weren't shown in USA before back then ...

I still have three or four beyond that as well....I am currently in Florida but when I get back home in a few weeks I will check the bottoms...some were labeled.  Checked my pics....don't think the color makes a difference.
