My Spare Time... Design
in 1998 I had volunteered to playtest Kerry Anderson's wargame The
Battle of Armageddon that he was planning to publish through
Design Group (then known as the Micrgame Co-op). After
thoroughly enjoying the game in its playtest stage, I was inspired
to try my hand at designing a cover for the game. Kerry liked what
I had come up with and decided to go with it.
then I've had the opportunity to design ten more covers through
the MDG for talented designers such as Bruce Costello, Paul Rohrbaugh,
Hjalmar Gerber, Bruce McFarlane, and Brian Train. I also designed
the logo for the MDG.
two other rough concepts that were not used:
I've done two covers for designer Perry
Moore. Although Perry doesn't use the covers with the
games themselves, he uses them in advertising and promoting the
games. Incidentally, his game Army Group North was eventually
picked up by Critical Hit and published as Drive to the Baltic.
As a side note, The SS Abyss is my own favorite of all my
but far from leastly, I had the good fortune to work with Jon Iwamasa
and Kurt Kuhlmann of Warhorse
Simulations on the cover for their release of Empire.
