1) Gargoyles have a bit of a craven appearance, but it's not a 'skull face.' The reason it may have looked that way in Ultima 4 is because that game ran off a resolution of what... 320 x 240, if that?
look not good for me... Sorry i m an old players, and i have played at all of the serie of ultima...
Gargoyles got skull face, and not humans face.
The helm, is the helm of the dwarf in the lord of the ring.
2) Do you know just how much of the entire medieval fantasy genre was ripped off from the Lord of the Rings? It's a simple fact of life that things are taken from it.
I think the concept art is alright, but I hope to see more than just 3 throwing weapons, honestly.
