More Art from Iron Grip: Marauders

Ah, so beautiful! I really cannot wait until Iron Grip: Marauders finally goes online. The artwork alone: Massive Steampunk warmachines! Epic! My only regret (well, not really regret) is, I will not really have time to play. If all goes well, I will be a father six weeks from today …
