So I had an idea for a campaign book for my Superhero RPG (Squadron UK) set in World War II. Trouble is I needed some artwork for it. Sure you can trawl the 'net searching for photos and pictures which may or may not be public domain. However, this pack gave me what I wanted without effort and at a good price. The artwork - by Rick Hershey - is consistently good and an effort has been made to include a range of picture types. There are full scenes, a range of individual figures and even some graphics of WWII weapons. All in all a damn good stab at giving people what they need.

Good points: Very reasonable price given the open-ended license. Good quality artwork. A range of picture types given.

Area for improvement: None, really. I mean I can't expect the artist to get inside my head and give me exactly the range of pictures I need. I presume Rick is American so it's only natural for him to include lots of drawings of GI's that I was unable to use. At least he compensated for this by including a couple of British-types (and even what seemed to be a belgian).
