I'm with Weasel. I've picked up or declined picking up new rule sets to scan based on the cover. Nota litmus test, but for me, certainly a factor

POLL DESCRIPTION

MH Dee muses:

Was just idling milling this over do you prefer photographs of miniatures or artwork (painting etc) on the covers of rules?

I was thinking this after seeing the cover of the new Spearhead WWI rules. I much preferred the old artwork cover. I'm not sure exactly why I prefer artwork on rules covers, guess it's because some mini photography is often less evocative of a period than an nice painting. And especially period stuff – I really like the DBM covers, nicely minimalist too.

Well? Anyone have a preference?
