After seeing Sons of Alaitoc's "Best codex cover" thread, I felt that someone had to make a similar thread for fantasy. So, what, in your opinion, is/was the best and worst army book covers?

My nominations:

-Bretonnians (the charging knight looks awesome, and its interesting seeing Peasants fighting Horrors)
-6th ed Skaven (because of the really cool looking Warlord)
-Daemons (very dynamic looking, and the Herald on the Juggernaut looks awesome)
-Lustria (if only for the Carnosaur vs Rat Ogre in the centre)
-6th ed Vampire Counts (because the image of the Vampire and his knights charging out of the darkness towards the viewer is both scary and awesome)

-6th ed Empire. Pretty Boring.
-6th ed High Elves, Dark Elves and Dwarves, for the same reason.

I deffinatly agree with Lord of Nonsensical Crap on this the bret cover is really awesome I also like the WoC one and the Ogre Kingdoms one

I like the Vampire one.....LOL I think it has a great contrast, but that's my opinion.

I love the New lizardmen one

I hate the dwarf one.

I've always liked the TK one.

The VC one is bad though, too cartoony.

Warriors of Chaos, or Hordes of Chaos. Because Adrian Smith is awesome. :D

Worst: New beastmen cover, looks like a obese man with a goat's head, I'm just glad they didn't put that warthog on the cover though.

Best:hmmm, WoC is pretty good, I really like Ogre Kingdoms cover though... Though the whole OK book is probably the best army book they've made (par the rules)
