Welcome to another Developer Update!
Skulls for the Skull Throne went live yesterday for owners of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 on PC and will run until the 11th of June. Blood for the Blood God! Click to find out more about it.
This week we wanted to show you another concept art of a Premium Cosmetic that we are working on. One of many! Our in-house lore expert has spent a lot of time researching, investigating and brainstorming different hat concepts. While we had his attention we also took the opportunity to ask him a couple of questions regarding hats. You can read the interview further down.
If you have any questions related to cosmetics, lore, or tips about any specific hats you want us to look at, hit us up below!
This hat concept is for Slayer Bardin. One of the most important aspects of being a Slayer is showing off your mohawk, and this tricorn hat makes sure that the mohawk can peak through. This particular concept* is based on a Slayer known as Long Drong, and specifically a model from Long Drong’s Slayer Pirates. Long Drong is the Pirate Captain of a band of Slayer Pirates.
*This concept is a work in progress and can change during development, as well as sometimes work in progress items can be pulled from production for various reasons.
INTERVIEW WITH IN-HOUSE LORE MASTER: MÅRTEN!
1. Where do you take your inspiration from?
Old and new Warhammer books, (army books, art books, roleplay books), other Warhammer fantasy artwork and miniatures.
2. What do you enjoy the most with working with hats?
Looking through the reference material and finding the perfect fit for each hero.
3. Your favorite hat in-game, so far?
I’m sorry to be so predictable but has to be Pigmar. It ticks all the boxes for me, sourced with a backstory from a book, seriously ludicrous. Worn with dignity and pride by the wearer.
Second pick would be the Anvil of Doom.
4. If you could pick a hat to own and wear at the office, which one would it be?
I could see myself wearing the Marienburg Bicorne.
