Zhodani Cover by BenWootten Zhodani Cover by BenWootten
This is a cover for the up coming alien source book for Mongoose Publishing's Traveller RPG.

This the final piece for the book but not the original piece done. The big gray chap was originally a cyborg and then changed to the present guy in power armour.

i think i like the other version where the big guy doesn't have the helmet, it lets you know who the good guy is and who the bad guy is, or are they both just fighting for no reason?

I like the fact that having the face showing allows you to see that he has no idea he is going to lose this fight, too stupid to see what we all can.

But as to good and bad, that is up for debate, there is nothing to suggest who is who and what their motivations for fighting are, last time I saw white troops in armour they certainly weren't the good guys. And saying that very rarely is a fight about good and bad, it is usually about at its core about resources and survival.

still like the white one, very nice work of art, very detailed, you can tell that the battles been going on for sometime by looking at the tree that's been plasma blasted in the back ground, and the trampled ground show that either they were circling each other or one of them was running around a lot to dodge the other, i think its definitely better than the Mona Lisa, and i have my reasons too.

Very very cool.  A cyborg with a chainsaw.  Is there anything scarier? :)

Love how you've updated the 80s Zhodani combat armour. Intrigued by the big chap - he's got Anglic writing on his arm, suggesting that they 'grow 'em big in the Imperium'.

It was great to revisit these old classics, i really enjoye dthe traveller stuff. I think the power armour adds a fair bit of mass to the human frame, inside there s wee weedy guy;)

The Zhodani are all about mental aptitude and clear asthetics I think. The big is screwed I fear.
