GZG Official: Another request for photos...

Subject: GZG Official: Another request for photos...
A couple of times in the past I've asked if anyone on here has some
photos of our (GZG) stuff painted to good enough standards for
illustrating magazine articles - now I need to ask again, but with
rather specific requirements this time.
To cut a long story short, Wargames Illustrated is being just
SLIGHTLY flexible in its "historical only" policy, and in a few
issues' time they will be printing an article or two on "near future"
combat - you know the sort of thing, ultramoderns crossed with
"plausible" sci-fi to represent warfare in the next few decades.
Roger Gerrish has written the article, and Wayne from the magazine
has contacted me to see if I could supply some additional photos to
help illustrate it.
The requirements are quite specific - technically, he's asked for
"high res, 300dpi or higher, 1MB+ photographs of anything suitably
Modern / Near Future battlefield / actions shots". So, we're looking
at wheeled, tracked and possibly VTOL equipment (no GEV or Grav,
that's going to be too high tech), and some of our troops in "less
sci-fi" gear - eg: ones more like the NAC, Colonial Defence,
Pan-Africans etc, rather than high-tech armoured troops like NSL, NI,
UNSC etc. Oh, and no aliens! ;-)
Some of the Tomorrow's War figures (DPRG, RANG and US Army) would
also be very good.
If anyone has yet painted up one of our recent MRAPs or some of the
Colonial Ranger/Rover trucks, that sort of thing would be perfect.
The painting and photography needs to be absolutely top-notch - I'm
sure most of you are familiar with the photographic content of WI
these days, the standard is VERY high and anything that doesn't look
sufficiently "professional" most likely won't get used, I'm afraid.
As always with these sort of requests, the timescale is short - a
week at most - so if anyone out there can help with stuff that's
already done then it would be enormously appreciated - as always,
I'll do my best to ensure that painters are credited where due.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out! :-)
