What does the picture show? The US invasion of Eternia, making a move on Castle Grayskull?  ;D

Moritz, can you not see and realize that what you are looking at is the is the reverse side of Mount Rushmore where the Bilderbergers and the Illuminati have built their official secret headquarters and lair?  The entire area is surrounded by thick forests of thorn bushes and they employ a fleet of dragons to patrol the perimeter.  Any breach of the perimeter barrier is dealt with by a rapid reaction force consisting of a squadron of unicorns and a support platoon of poo flinging monkeys. 

They occasionally have social functions with their neighbors on the other side of Mount Rushmore, you know them as Team America and when they are not out kicking ass they tend to stay close to home so most of them attend the monthly barbecues and special piano recitals just to make their down time more enjoyable.  :)

I was going to say that that's one line of wargames figures you'll never see, but come to think of it, I have no confidence in that statement whatsoever...  :o ::)

The ultimate "secret" weapon to be concealed on the gaming board under a small cover until you need to use them and then sit back and watch the look of scorn on your opponents faces.  Even better, a platoon of flying poo flinging monkeys :)

If memory serves me correctly, one volume of a set of story collections put out by Baen Books some years ago has the viewer looking at an attacking dragon through the HUD of a modern jet fighter.

I wasn't all that keen on the book itself but I loved Todd Lockwood's 'muscle restoration' cover illustration for A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent.
