Cool You know what ....

Dragon would make a ton of money if they published a book of Volstad artwork i would buy one for sure also if they offered prints of Rons work would be cool my 2 cents

Doug,

They have published his artwork in a Concord book. As a matter of fact, some of the newer figure sets are based on the book which made some people believe the figures were in Dragon's catalog for a long time but were never released! See the figure set with the Polish prisoner which appeared in the book a while ago.

Regards,

Hi Saul
I think maybe he is asking for a complete volume with all of Ron's work, Panzer, figure etc. I often have asked him about this, and have mentioned it to Dragon as well. I really wish they would make a book with all the boxtop artwork,(not just Ron's either), that they have published and used.

I love Ron's boxarts and I will definitely buy a book on his artwork if it ever makes it to the shelves.

I believe that Ron's Armor artwork is tops and his figures are the best Dragon has put out. With that said I feel IMHO that the best figure box art out there is that done by A. Karaschuk. If you haven't seen his stuff just look at some of the newer MB and Mini-art figure kits and you will see what I mean (especially the MB kits). Much more detail, depth and animation than Ron's. Just my opinion.

YOU ARE CORRECT!James that's what i was refering to not to take away from your work of wich i'm a fan of but i have been a fan of Ron's since the Squadron in action books and if i was a exec at Dragon i would publish a book instant money maker and a excellent referance and inspiration.

I'd also buy a book of Ron's artwork. He is very good. The other guy Karashuck is also one of my favorites.
