Thread: Blightun Uber Allies

    Wink Blightun Uber Allies

    Hi there!

    Inspired by Rivet Wars and Ted's great work, I made a parody of this German propaganda poster to go along with my Uncle is Watching You print.

    I've been inspired by propaganda art for a long while, especially the German and Soviet constructivism art.

    The classic "Deutschland uber alles" (Germany over All) seemed like a great starting point for an authentic piece of art:

    Here I've RIVETIZED it:

    I changed "Alles" to "Allies" because, well, they're not exactly German. They speak Blightsprechen.

    I'll try to do more art after I get my dang troopers painted! (Those dang rocket cycles are challenge!)

    Thank you for looking!

    EDIT: Changed the translation from German: "Alles" means "All" not "Allies."

    UPDATE: These are now official licensed prints! Limited to an edition of 250, you can get yours here.

    Wow that's fantastic! How would one go about buying them as I can't see them on your site?

    Thank you!

    Ted and I have been talking about me releasing these as official licensed art. When I get the 100% go-ahead from Ted, I'll post them into the store.

    Just one small thing.... alles in German means all. Deutschland uber alles means "Germany over all". HA! I knew 2 years of German in college would finally pay off! Who knew it would be 20 years later?

    This is great! Hithero will have to hang some in his war torn houses. Good stuff.

    It's a great poster and a great idea.

    A small correction: "Deutschland uber alles" - means "Germany above all". I like the Blightun over allies spin though

    What puzzles me is why "Deutschland" is misspelled in that 1st poster.

    Thanks for checking it out, and for your comments.

    I don't speak German, so I guess I got excited in my translation. (Fixed in the initial post.)

    That said, I too like the use of "Allies" instead of "Alles" as it makes it more of a parody of Nazi propaganda.

    It's a great play on the words!

    These are very cool. I only wish I still had a game room so these could be hung up...maybe in my cube...

    So Steam Crow and I got together and decided that these posters are just too cool to not be official so they are officially official I believe Steam Crow will be selling some in his poster store and at shows. And I'm loving the tiny versions I saw Steam Crow hung on his cool arc de triomphe. Hopefully he'll be inspired to make some more as Rivet Wars moves forward.
