Mike McVey co-designed wargames including Warmarchine, as well as helping create figures for Blood Rage and The Others
Cool Mini or Not is upping its investment in quality miniatures for its catalogue of board games, taking on industry veteran and model-making pro Mike McVey.
McVey has been working with miniatures for three decades, joining Warhammer outlet Games Workshop in 1987 as a painter before becoming a minis designer for the firm a decade later.
In the late 1990s he helped establish Wizards of the Coast’s new miniatures team, later moving to Privateer Press, where he co-designed Warmachine and many of the wargame’s expansions and standalone spin-offs, such as Hordes.
McVey is no stranger to CMON’s work with minis, having helped create the models for games including Eric Lang’s Blood Rage and The Others over the last four years. His work can also been seen in Lang’s Rising Sun, due to launch on Kickstarter later this year.
CMON creative director David Preti hinted at the publisher’s ongoing commitment to miniatures-focused releases, teasing: “We are already planning new projects for the years to come.”
