Unremarkable Package Includes Origin Favorites

International WC Series Unboxings Reveal Fun Regional Differences

2019-11-04Today we've got a couple of Wing Commander overview videos narrated in both Italian and German. Wing Commander unboxing videos come up from time to time, but it's less common to be able to sample so much of the series in one place at one time like this.

Thunder Castle Games was a company that bought CCG developer Mag Force 7 shortly after the WC game was produced, and this boxed set of the series was proposed but never produced. AD reached out to the original artist, Brad Kelly, and he added this background: I mocked up a number of gift set box designs for TCG including this one for Wing Commander.

German Novel Covers in All Their Original Glory

2019-11-01At long last: the original sources for all four alternate German Wing Commander novel covers! Baen didn't own the Sam Yeates' cover paintings for Wing Commander III and IV so they couldn't license them to the German publisher directly. So instead they used 'slush' art that they already had the rights to reprint starting with Heart of the Tiger!
