Hello everyone,

I'm wondering what the most capturing/evocative box artwork in wargaming might be; and as always, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. Let's go ahead now:



Right now, my first choice would be Dien Bien Phu: The Final Gamble (not released yet). Everything is right here: composition/layout/art. Clear and simple. Very impressive.

Simple, and understated. Still my favorite.

One of my favorites, as well. It's those over-long barrels, pointing in all directions, that adds that finishing touch.

One of my absolute favorite and literally a "striking" cover.

Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation.

I like the simplicity of the original PnP version.

Very nice. Classic composition. Reminds me of Milestone's scene in Pork Chop Hill where the GIs march off toward the sound of the guns in the middle of the night. One by one, they turn back to look at the camera. It's a great device. The artist has captured it by having a lone soldier in the midst of that Russian humanity do the same thing. It puts you there with them, and hints at the uncertainty all of them must be thinking.


Very well observed.

Can't go wrong with classic art

First one I thought of as well: simple, bold, slightly abstract, evocative...magic! I loved the game before I ever opened the box. Still do...

I'm a big fan of Keith Rocco, so I like covers that have his paintings (Don Troiani, too), like this one.
