Oh wow, that was great.

No elusive tease here, you actually showed several of the designs.

Many of those designs were very creative and bold, way to go.

It seems that recent history of entertainment is highly focused on production quality and improvements. And of course that comes with more effort and time.

I'm thinking of the progression from counters with silhouettes, to Denis Loubet color artwork, to 3-D modeled detail.

I'm pretty sure Car Wars 1e had full-color, painted counters from the beginning. The silhouettes came later, with the "color-your-own" Expansion Sets.

Yes.

I was sort of generalizing to even earlier wargames including Ogre.

Of course, other areas where intense production has evolved is in movies and music.

It seems that famous producers really launched a new era of music and marketing in the 1980s. While my bias tends more towards core artistic purity, certain rock albums of that era really benefited from all the tweaking in the studio and became huge hits.
