Games Workshop

Nottingham, England, United Kingdom

Full time

Jan 13

Do you love the dark future of Warhammer 40k and have a passion and talent for illustration? Are you excited by the idea of producing evocative illustrations that capture all the glorious, thrilling character of the 41st Millennium?

Would you like to join the Warhammer 40,000 Studio’s world class team of illustrators? 

As part of the Art team in our Nottingham Design Studio, you’ll be responsible for helping to develop briefs, create concepts and produce finished detailed, fantastical illustrations for a variety of different print formats, including rulebooks and packaging. 

Our Illustrators work predominantly in digital media, most commonly Photoshop, working hand in hand with our Writers and Graphic Designers to create a range of Codexes and Campaign books. These provide context and inspiration for Warhammer 40k fans around the world.

If you possess strong drawing (particularly figure drawing) and painting skills, and would enjoy the challenge of producing highly rendered and appropriate art to strict deadlines whilst always pushing quality, we want to hear from you!
