I found these art pages of the warriors three various that impressed me. Also, on the Fandral (first one) it looks like there is a rune on his belt. Does anybody know which one it is and what it means? thanks

That last one of them as a group is just WOW.

Rarely do you ever see art of them, and even rarer is good art at that. Love the little bubble off to the bottom right with Volstagg and the goat. So cute. The overall style of that piece reminds me of some illustration you'd see in the late 50's-early 60's childrens book or magazine advertisement. Cool.

As for the rune... I've never made it without biting. Ask Mr. Donar!

It's 'Fehu' in the Elder Futhark, referring to wealth/livestock.

I'd say they've used it moreso because it's an 'F', rather than any deeper meaning. ;\)

Your probable right, but considering Fandral's carefree lifestyle I wouldn't be surprised if he is fairly wealthy or at least tends not to be lacking in money. That would leave time for adventuring. Of course, if it refers to wealth in less specific terms Fandral could consider himself wealthy in friends and such.
