Wayne England, one of the most iconic tabletop gaming artists of the past few decades, has passed away. Known for his illustrations in Warhammer rule books, on the pages of White Dwarf magazine, Dungeons and Dragons manuals and Magic the Gathering cards, England helped define the artistic style of many a game’s universe.

Announced on Facebook by a friend of the family, England is said to have passed away on the 9th February, survived by his wife Victoria and children Millie and Harry. Condolences from those that knew him personally have poured in, but many hundreds of fans have also voiced their sadness at the loss.
