I know the lore! :D The Hist have told the argonians everything in advance about the oblivion gates. And instead of daedry coming out from the gates there were argonians which were flooding into them xDDD I bet the expression of the daedric forces were to die for!
badumm tss...

In the lore, the Argonians kicked their asses so hard they retreated and closed the gates in fear of invasion

Another reason why Argonians should BE the supreme race of Tamriel~ F*** the Empire and High Elves!

That's...THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE, ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY OPEN AN OBLIVION GATE N ARGONIA. Nice pic....and those damned deadra won't know what hit them.

I love this! There are so many glowy things, (as I have a passion for) the gate looks amazing, and it has a great atmosphere! Nice job! :) (Smile)

Black Marsh could be the Russia of Tamriel. Bad things happen when you try to invade, at least.

And, when you fail, they go and invade YOU.

this is awsome! I love argonians (even if they look kinda lame in oblivion)

Everything was mighty potato-faced in Oblivion.
Was glad to see the improved face meshes in Skyrim.

The Argonians didn't wait for the empire to save their hides, no. the Hist trees told the Argonians to charge into the gates at such a rate that the lieutenants of mehruns Dagon had to close the bloody gates!
AgentTasmania Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
Between Oblivion and Skyrim, the Argonians collectively took many levels in badarse.
Counter invading HELL does make conquering what was left of Morrowind look a little weak, but it's still a gold star on their ledger
Actually, the Argonians conquered more than the Thalmor on reflection.
Kakeyio Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yup! The Argonians are fierce fighters, Tiber Septim needed a Giant golem based off of dwemer design to take down the Aldmari dominion (the Second?) while the argonians kept the Dominion at bay for years, striking in Elsweyr and even in the Valenwood. during their reign. I think they succeeded from the empire in the second Era. either way Argonians are tough as nails. but their problem was they don't have ambition the lands they took they didn't keep. sadly, but defeating the invasion of Tamriel by Dagon while everyone is Cyrodill shit themselves silly. thats a milestone.

OMG I just realised there's more than one Argonian; at least 3-4
Those Dremora b***erds are sooooo dead

If history has taught us one thing, it is to never, ever fight a land war in Argonia.

Love the Argonian on the front after just shanking one of Dremoras ;)

This is a great picture. It inspired me to write a story. I don't have it anymore but to see this picture again brings back the inspiration again.

Salutations victoria. :)

I was wondering if I could have permission to use this picture in a video I'm making; a Poll on the most favored province for "The Elder Scrolls: VI", which I am briefly describing each province choice to make it fair. One fact mentioned for Black Marsh is this very incident of Argonians driving back Mehrunz dagons forces :D

According to the wiki the Argonians practicaly invaded Oblivion instead of the other way around. This is well made!
LectorCuldera Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013
let's play count the argonians!
 "one...two... hey, where did Bob go?"
otaku4242 Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
weren't the argonians one of the few to successfully repel the dremora during the oblivion crisis?
bigton Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013   Artist
They were. The Dremora eventually said "Fuck this!" and closed off their gates after having so many of their others shut down in other areas in Black Marsh. 
ValentineFate Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013
After looking at this picture for awhile I only just noticed the Argonian in the tree and the one around the back with the spear. I love this picture so much. Lovely details and lighting!
JarmenKell Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2013
Сјајно, одлично!
This is why i want Blackmarsh to be covered in TES - the later, the better. At a time when graphic details are glorious and our PC configurations suitably godlike. I want that game to be feral, merciless, brutal towards the player, with nasty critters lurking from shadow, trees, sky and swamps, and with poisonous plants all over the place. To show how inhospitable that land really is, according to lore.
RollerTrack Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014
That's kind of the problem, it supposed to be so inhospitable that if you're not an Argonian you'll probably die all the time as going to Black Marsh as any other race is pretty much suicide.
BeardedBovel Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2013
This little corner of the Oblivion Crisis is probably my favourite, the rise and victory of the saxhleel. Just that you decided to depict this event is enough to make me giddy, but I must say I think you did it really well. Great work!

Simply gorgeous !
HikariKinawa Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2013
Yeah! I read about that too! ^3^
The deadras had no chance. The Hist warned the Argonians and they striked back very organized. I just love them! :w00t:

when the gates opened in black marsh, the Dremora didn't pour out, the argonians flooded in 
Joshmoe93 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013
Hahaha, bow before the power of the Dremora, little mort- DAGON"S BALLS, CLOSE THE GATES, CLOSE THE DAMNED GATES!!!!

It's actually called Blackmarsh... :I
Tae-Rai Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
That's what the Empire calls it. It's actually called Argoina, hence Argonians.
Caspia583 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, i did a little brush up on my lore after I posted that...
