why is there an axe on this picture and not the official one in the eberron player's guide?

Hmm I can't remember, I think I added the axe cos it seemed to suit a dwarf, or it was in the brief and then removed in a revision, really can't remember which though.

It's talent like this that makes me wish I could afford to hire it!
I wanna know the story behind this guy! A self-forged dwarf makes perfect sense in any D&D realm.

Just out of curiosity, why does this picture have an axe when the illustration in the actual book doesn't?

I put the axe in tn the final on a whim but it didn't quite fit the page leyout so it was removed again. Good spotting though

Yeah. And I don't think a Self-Forged would really be interested in fighting with an axe anyway. Good thing you removed it.

The Elf/Half Elf player in me wishes to scoff, but the artist in me says this is pretty badarse. Love the layered armor. It's always a nice touch to see attention into the detail of padding and metal texture in these sorts of pics.
