I may be able to help here, I run a mini-photography business in my spare time (ha!) and one of my projects is to create pics suitable for Twilight 2000. I'm quite happy for these to be used with attribution and can even edit shots to look more like the original edition if required (I STILL have great fun identifying the original pics!). If anyone is doing anything coming up for publication drop me a line and I can see what I have or can arrange to shoot.

That is great to hear that you can do that! Heck yes I would be interested and definitely would be able to give you attribution

question - if I sent you any of the pics I used for the Africa Sourcebook could you modify them as you said above?

definitely interested

As for the GDW releases of the 80s and 90s the covers were excellent (Pirates of the Vistula being my favourite) but the interior drawings were at times lacking.
Which ones, the first printings had different covers.

James, those images are amazing. They incorporate a large taste of the artwork of the original release.

Somewhere between this one and the previous ones. Although either looks good.

The images I've been using in my Twilight 1964 booklet, not that that's ever going to be published, have been coming from state archives mostly. Some National Guards have great photo collections either through the state archives (New Jersey) or Flickr (Georgia). If you want to go for a B&W 80's and 90's feel with a creative commons license. Not sure what if you could charge for anything with them in though.
