More art up on preview:



Quote
That time for more art for the coming Hard Targets sourcebook, from Kenneth Fairclough.

Here’s the original art notes:

“Loose Ends”  - This is a 6th World execution scene, with a MegaCorp city in the far background and an execution in the middle ground silhouetted against the distant city scene.  We want an image very similar to the attached “LooseEndsReference”, but with a city more in line with the attached SR5 city scenes.  The image from your portfolio called “apoc-down-8” is a great example of exactly the type of scene we are going for.

I quite like it, though the weapon being pointed seems MASSIVE ;)

That's why you never ask your troll henchman for his gun, trying to be dramatic for the execution; either bring and elf or human and use their gun, or bring your own. On the plus side, once he fires that troll-sized pistol, I'm sure he'll enjoy his new cyberarm!  ;D

Maybe it's an example of the sensor housing table in action?

Maybe it's a joke within the team, a test to see how long the face can keep it out in a straight arm before tiring?

Or it's just an oversized hand cannon that will snap the guy's wrist when he pulls the trigger... ::)

That or the guy has a high-strength cyberarm that can't be seen in silhouette.

Rigger 5 for most of that, I'd think. Mmm, RIggers...

Shouldn't it be called Trigger 5, since rigger books almost always trigger the next edition? :P

That's just because the rigger book tends to be the last core expansion, and in Rigger 3's place it was released twice—original version and Revised.

Anyway, there are 5E books on the docket until the end of 2017/early 2018 already. Books on the current to-do list won't even be written by the time Jason is planning Shadowrun's 2020 releases. So can we please dispense with the jokes already? It's not funny anymore.

Cover art!!! ;D

Cover illustration just came in for Shadowrun: Hard Targets. Here’s the back cover description of the book:

It’s thick. Luxurious. Concealing. The cloak of death will make you feared, envied, and maybe even wealthy. It will also smother your soul. The best assassins in the Sixth World can gain untold wealth and make the whole world shake, but they also will be hunted and stalked until the end of their days. Assuming their conscience doesn’t eat them alive.

Hard Targets is a shadow runner’s guide to bringing death, with information on getting into wetwork, tactics for doing the job, and critical gear. It also contains plot details and adventure hooks, including an in-depth look at the city of Havana in the Caribbean League, a political and criminal hotspot that lends itself to all sorts of wetwork jobs. The work is there—if you can deaden your soul enough to take it.

Hard Targets is a Deep Shadows book for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.


And the cover illustration!

P.S. What's a conscience? 8)

That is one damn good looking cover. Up there with the cover of Run Faster as my favorite covers so far for SR5.
