Here's my all-time favorite SPI game box covers that Redmond Simonsen did, in no particular order. This list has NOTHING TO DO with the quality of the game inside.

AIR WAR
A MIGHTY FORTRESS
WAR IN THE PACIFIC
PANZERGRUPPE GUDERIAN
TERRIBLE SWIFT SWORD (1st Edition)
WACHT AM RHEIN (1st Edition)
DESCENT ON CRETE
HIGHWAY TO THE REICH
DESTRUCTION OF ARMY GROUP CENTER
DRIVE ON STALINGRAD
STARFORCE: ALPHA CENTAURI
RUSSIAN CIVIL WAR
WORLD WAR 3
THE FAST CARRIERS
KHARKOV
STONEWALL
TO THE GREEN FIELDS BEYOND
DREADNOUGHT

What covers are your favorites? Maybe you can grouse about your least favorites as well! Okay, if I have to list my all time dogs:

AFTER THE HOLOCAUST
STAR SOLDIER (horrible!)
UP SCOPE (ack!)
WAR IN THE EAST/WAR IN THE WEST/WAR IN EUROPE (boring)
INVASION AMERICA (soooo tacky)

StarSoldier?! Say it ain't so, Mac!


Ever since AH did Heinlein's Starship Troopers, Redmond had always wanted to present something better than that ghastly work done of the Mobile Infantry. IIRC, he actually loathed that cover, and made a commitment to bury it with his StarSoldier. And he did. The game alone was a quantum level above 'Troopers in every way. Forgive my Blasphemy St. Bob, but your arachnids are but cartoon characters next to the Rame or Xenophobes.


And Hey, I like Aquarium Helmets!! I was raised on Lost in Space, y'know!
