In life, none were more loyal to the crown of Lordaeron than the knight who would follow his prince into undeath. When the fallen prince of Lordaeron became the Lich King, the knight was made into Sigar Dreadhowl, a Death Knight known for a piercing, soul-shattering wail that rivaled that of any Banshee in the Scourge’s employ.
Although the Lich King would fall, Sigar feigned enmity toward his former master, infiltrating the Horde and waited. Through subtle machination, he convinced a band of heroes– veterans of the Horde banded together to stand against any and all that threatened it– to bring about the return of the Lich King’s unholy reign. They learned too late what their actions had wrought.
They were the first to stand against the ascension of an even more powerful Lich King, and as reward for their valor, were the first to fall.
Rewarded for his duplicity and loyalty, Sigar Dreadhowl was named Baron of the Scourge, bestowed with the Helm of Dominion, and tasked to server as the Lich King’s own right hand.
His first act as Baron of the Scourge– Raising the heroes he had deceived and slain into the Lich King’s greatest champions.

I’ve begun streaming more regularly, and I’m putting most of my new stuff on Patreon where they sit for a week while patrons have first look at them. Then I’ll upload them here. Here’s how you can keep track of what I’m working on:
Even more sketches from my Twitch Streams:
These are the sketches that I did on request during my Twitch stream on March 4th.
Now, these were technically post-stream, but I still had a lot of fun with them. One of my friends in WoW has a character who lost part of his arm and has a prosthetic that feels like it came out of the Jaime Lannister collection. Took the liberty to do some conceptualizing.
There’s usually something that comes through the grave. For Motink, it was her vanity. After having her talents for sniping pressed into service of the Scourge and a targeting scope jammed into her eye socket, she was unable to cope with the desiccated husk her … Continue reading Scourge Champions – Dreadscope Motink
After the Lich King conquered Azeroth, it was only a matter of time before the Burning Legion renewed their invasion, eager to collect their wayward servant and press him and his undead Scourge into their fold.

The ill-fated War Against the Lich King was not the first time the Sin’dorei had known the unforgiving landscape of Northrend or the Icecrown Glacier. Many had followed Illidan, the Betrayer, in their bid to destroy the Lich King during the Third War. Many did … Continue reading Scourge Champions – Vylris Reborn: Durin of the Crimson Snowfall
