Hey everybody. I mentioned a while back that I would be uploading scans of old C&C material in various magazines as I got a hold of them, well here's a new batch. Back then I uploaded scans from the October 1999 issue of PC Gamer, well here are new scans from the December 1996 issue of PC Gamer featuring Red Alert, and from the November/Dec 1998 issue of Cinescape Magazine.

There's more to come. I've got a February 1997 issue of Computer Gaming World with a high resolution cover of this image that I have yet to scan, among several others:

Woooh, some nice pics there. Wish I had the original of that RA cover.

Well, I DO have it, but only in black and white :(

(taken from the readme PDF of EA's RA ISOs. There's more where that came from)

I got something pretty for you... I just got my hands on a pretty rare (Swiss German) "10 years of Westwood" collection. Well guess what, it contains an ultra-rare render of a beta C&C1 harvester, with the chassis they eventually used for the Flame Tank.

UNFORTUNATELY, my camera chose this time to crap out on me, and decided it doesn't want to focus anymore, and I can't access a scanner at the moment. So all I got is a pretty blurry picture.

Still, kinda cool:

I swear, the first chance I get, I'm gonna make a beautiful scan of this baby.

God that's ugly! What were they on when they designed that? :D

Looks like they started with the Flame tank, THEN made that for a joke.

Main problem with it is that it was designed before they had even chosen what kind of stuff they'd use as resources. So this is very very early art, still more in the direction of things like the X-O suit and other high-futuristic crap, and without any idea of what these 2 vacuum cleaner things were even supposed to suck up.

Seen it. Considered buying it. Didn't do it in the end. Got the game, though.
