Art for original .44 is, buy my opinion, quite good except the gun itself :P (which can be honest mistake in the "preinternet" era - like, for example, the card was called "pistol" when the art was ordered) - there are something happening there except just showing us the gun we've seen thousand times.

New art shows the right gun but there are nothing else there. Boring and pointless.


I couldn't disagree more about the art for the post-Sabbat era .44 Magnum. I think the watercolor style contributes a foreboding feel that matches the mood of someone getting their weapon ready for a fight, and the colors fit very well with the card layout colors (the green stripe, the equipment card "keys/bullets" background). That's a very underrated aspect to card art, whether the art fits the theme colors of the card layout.

I don't get it - picture looks static as hell. The guy at the picture should either be moving to meet his enemy, or crouching to be defensive, or even be staying with spread legs to "play cowboy". Also body part in the center of the picture :pinch: is, maybe, anatomically correct, but I'm not sure is appropriate to the feeling we suppose to get from this card.

The colors are fine, thou.

It looks like somebody arming themselves with a gun before the fight happens. Which reflects what happens in game when you equip minions, a stealthy action to equip one's self. I think the art on .44 Magnum fits better than the art on, for example, Poker, where the action in the art doesn't match the effect. Using a Poker is not going to burn a minion via decapitation.

Equipping the gun is very costly (2 pool = Protracted Investment!) action - i justify it as a serious organizational effort by vampire to not only get a gun, but also provide legal coverage, which allow travel and making other activities with it without raising questions. Which, actually, will be much more interesting being shown in the art ;)

.44 is plain, Poker is directly wrong, yea.

You can burn a vampire using a Poker and some fancy Quietus cards :)
