German Orcs.

Finished 'Millenium' by Tom Holland a little while ago, about Christianity in the middle ages around the year 1000, when many Christians really thought their religion might get killed off by vikings, Hungarians or Muslims.  It didn't, of course, and the people who end up sacking Rome, center of Catholicism and most of Christianity beyond the Byzantines, are the Christian Normans, who sack it like it's never been sacked before.

If that happened now that would read like some news from Syria reads now, but now after playing video games for as long as I have it reads almost like a great setting for a game.  So I drew some Germans as Orcs, because of course the Germans are Orcs.
