Paintings

From Vermintide 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Paintings are pictures that can be placed in the frames that are in your Keep. They are pieces of art depicting elements of the Warhammer lore. Some, if not all paintings, come from previous works of Games Workshop and thus aren't original works.

You find new Paintings by collecting pieces of Ravaged Art. Those can be found at random spawn points in each mission. Picking up Ravaged Art only grants the art to you, not to the other players; however picking it up doesn't remove it from your teammates' game, meaning all four players can pick the same Ravaged Art from the same spot. You can find them at any Difficulty, even playing solo with bots.

The painting you choose for the center frame in your Keep will appear as one of the three below the host's center frame when in a party.

The Carnival of Speckren Vale A jolly little scene, ain't it? Well, you can't take these things at face value. A painted wagon hides all kinds of horror.

And there's more than one reason to dance around a flame.

Hunter of the Wastes It's bloody murder up on the Kislev borderlands. A thunder of hooves, and a severed head soon after.

You should ask Olesya - she's lived it.

The Beast of Bögenhafen Looks like the privy decided to start fighting back. If nothing else, it's a reminder not to drink the water around Bögenhafen.

Why she can't just paint things as they are, I don't know.
