I like the idea of visual storytelling that you have there. You see the image and you need to scroll down to see what the image is about, so there's a bit of suspense. You could add some blood splats and scratches on the walls as you scroll down, as an indication of the fight that you're about to see.

But exactly for this reason I think the scene at the bottom should be much more impactful. Use more dramatic lighting, viewpoint, poses etc.
Right now it's a bit tame.

Take a look at some theatre photographs, that's exactly what they try to do: impactful visuals.

The purple background is kind of dark, especially the upper part with the heiroglyphs. . the soldier could use a bit more detail, or greater variation in colors. right now its kind of just a red silhouette.

 

To increase believe-ablity and immersion, use a real egyptian sword.

That's a really neat looking piece of art! The first thing I noticed was that, relative to the detail of the wall, the snake and the soldier could use a bit more detail. Perhaps add a darker outline to them, some more shading, and texture of equal detail to that of the wall.
