Battletech - Anthology #5 by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Anthology #5 by Shimmering-Sword
Here's the cover art for Battlecorps Anthology #5, a piece that had it's NDA lifted rather quickly. The book has yet to be published but (don't take this as fact) might be at GenCon.

Civil war between the 3rd and 15th Marik Militias. A half disabled Hunchback grapples an Awesome to hold it in place, taking some heavy kicks in the process. Meanwhile a rifleman closes in at speed to finish the job, lining up a shot at the Awesome's breached cockpit.

I enjoyed the chance to give my take on a Battlemech cockpit, also being able to throw a modern design aesthetic over the old canon visuals of the mechs involved.

After seeing this cockpit and being reminded of all the empty screens that are in the MWO cockpits.. I kind of wish that this was the kind of cockpit any MechWarrior game has. I mean.. Seriously, why design a cockpit with LCD screens and not use it? This design, for me, just really gives it a mechwarrior feel and really adds to the immersion. Great job and I really enjoy all your BT/MW artwork, keep it up Shimmering-Sword! :)

I think in the future they'll make better use of the screens, but with now the programmers are better focused on important things like CW, than making cockpits slightly more immersive.

Great cockpit details, nice to see you go all out on the tight details now and then. Really love this perspective because it screams BT/MW, it reminds me of all those intro videos into the games, even the little robot silhouette on his hud is perfect, just the way it is in the game, glass damage is a nice touch...
