Descripción del libro
Battle Engines is a story about Groo Bucklander, who is a Lannishman (a race of short stature) in a world full of humans. The story doesn't take place on earth but replicates what life would have been in 1920 mixed with a bit of steampunk. Battle Engines are very large machines that are crewed by approximately 10 people and are used as the major military force in the world. They are massive brass colored (due to the special material used) machines that use cannons to fight. The story begins with a peaceful look at Groo traveling acting as a thresherman in the bread basket of the world but quickly takes a turn for the worse as an aggressive nation begins to attack the lands in the south and a war between these massive machines begins.
This story is the first of a triology, so this is also book 1.

Three ideas that I've had but I'm open for suggestions and ideas:
Idea 1: A face on look at one of the battle engines' faces looking directly at the reader. The battle engines are brassy in color and are humanoid (most of the time). Look up Mechwarrior and imagine them in a steampunk version.
Idea 2: A silhouette view of one of the battle engines when men standing around it with the title above. The imagine would show the size difference between the battle engines and the people that man it. Battle engines are generally 60 - 100 feet tall.
Idea 3: At one point in the book Groo discovers a battle engine submerged in a swamp. He gathers used parts from it. A cover of Groo (who is kinda like a hobbit from tolkien) approaching a half submerged battle engine in the water while its raining.
Lo que debe evitarse
I am really open to any interpretations of what I've presented.
