We are looking for a senior traditional animator for the Hammer & Bolter series currently in production for Games Workshop. The project is in a realistic anime-inspired Sci-Fi style, similar to anime series such as Netflix’s Castlevania. The story and visual tone will be serious and dark and therefore we are looking for candidates with strong anatomy skills able to quickly draw people in a detailed, realistic yet dynamic style. The story and visuals will be violent, bordering on horror, so please do not apply if this is not your thing.

We will be running a tight schedule and it is essential for all who work on this project to not only have great artistic skills but also be able to keep to a schedule, take artistic direction and above all, be co-operative team players.

All roles are remote.  We can not accept junior applications for this role.


Traditional 2D Animator




This project will be traditionally animated in Toon Boom.  We also use some of Toon Boom’s cut out elements. As always with this project, we are looking for Animators who can work in a detailed realistic style and work quickly and keep to a schedule. The Animators will be responsible for their own inbetweening, clean-up will be handled by our clean up artists. Experience of Toon Boom Harmony would be useful but not essential.
