Ok, I know this is a bit of an unusual request, but I would like to look into games that have artwork similar to those on this list. I love the artwork in these games and its part of the reason I like to play them. I'm a sucker for great art and lots of pieces.

So the games I would like to find artwork similar to are:

Arcana
Blood Bowl: Team Manager
Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition)
Defenders of the Realm
Dungeon Lords
Mage Knight: Board Game
Shadows over Camelot

Thanks ahead of time!

You should check out Dungeon Petz. The artwork looks cool on a computer screen, and it looks even cooler in person. Both my wife and I were blown away when we played it the first time. Same artist as Dungeon Lords. In fact, in the rule book Vlaada Chvatil says that he wanted to create another game that the artist could illustrate and began designing it with the artist in mind.

That's not so unusual! I often get interested in games based on their artwork, though I doubt I would buy them if there wasn't also a cool game there also.
Like you, I bought Arcana because it had great art.

Other games I have for similar reasons:

Kingsburg (+To Forge a Realm)
Jamaica
Discworld: Ankh-Morpork (Also because I'm a big Discworld fan)
Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre (this one has a really different style, but still awesome)
Draco Mundis (The art is mostly on small tiles, but still great)

I'm also definitely going to get:
Smash Up (The premise sells it even more for me)

Also recommended for art:
Small World (or Small World Underground)
Seasons

There's tons more of course

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

If you want some good art similar to Blood Bowl Team Manager, check out Chaos Marauders (second edition).

I in fact already own Dungeon Petz. My wife loves it. I was just being lazy when listing since I had already listed Dungeon Lords.

I have Small World and Kingsburg. I too am interested in Smash Up. I'm getting great recommendations, a lot of the usual games I would tend to think of. I like the lesser known recommendations the better. For example, Chaos Marauders I think is an excellent candidate to look into and wasnt on my radar until now.
