MoM 2 Concept Art

Rantz Hoseley, current Art Director of Quicksilver, has posted a couple of Master of Magic 2 concept art images on his new(ish) website, Death March. Death March is a comic strip, rants, and miscellania all pertaining to Rantz's reflections on life at game companies and in the industry.
The two images are from Quicksilver's initial MoM2 proposal to Infogrames, back before they were given Master of Orion 3:
