I am pretty sure that includes after market barrels. This is going to be pretty much an OOB exercise. I know you guys can build OOB. You guys teach me stuff all the time.



Agreed, Shaun is giving you the straight scoop on this --- build an oob model and "Wow" the rest of us with what you can do:-) :-)

GreatBrit, I think resin figures are okay too, but I may have to defer to Steve on this one. As long as they are OOB I don't think there were any restrictions on media, ie. what the kit is made out of.

Once again,
Welcome everyone!!

When does it start?

What do you have to model?




Chip, it runs the first quarter of next year, i.e. January 1st through March 31, 2004.

You can model anything, armor, air, naval, figs, dio, Sci Fi - as long as it's out of the box with no aftermarket.

As Staff Jim announced recently in the Armorama News Letter, a quarterly campaign is going to be launched soon called " Apprentice Guild Excercises" or "AGE" that should be a great opportunity for young Armorama modelers to have some fun, and possibly win some prizes.

Quoting Staff Jim: "The Apprentice Guild is a new group organized for young modelers (up to age 17). This new group will engage in a quarterly campaign contest to learn new skills and engage in some fun group building exercises. Everyone who joins in will be a winner but 3 members will be picked each campaign to receive some special awards (to be announced). This is all about having some fun and promoting the hobby and I would like to congratulate the members of the Armorama Guard for conceiving and offering to run this youth orientated activity on the site (as well as covering some of the costs). For more information check out the news story on the front page of the site."

In addition, Staff Jim has designated the following positions for the first campaign, and the the A-Guard members named below have volunteered to assist in them.

• Campaign Technical Officer (TO) – “Merlin”, (a.k.a. Rowan) will be responsible for publishing photos, and helping campaign participants with technical issues)

• Campaign Drill instructors (DI's) - These DI’s are advisors to the modelers participating in the campaign. Ask the DI’s advice about modeling techniques, tips, painting, etc. (they’re here to help). The DI’s are:
“Keenan”, (a.k.a. Shaun) – support on all topics.
“Warlock0322”, (a.k.a. Paul) - air/naval/armor support.
“Jrnelson”, (a.k.a. Jeff) - armor support.
“Animal”, (a.k.a. Dave) -softskins & Vietnam era support

• Campaign Commanding Officer (CO) – “WeWillHold”, (a.k.a. Steve) is responsible for the campaign organization.

This should be a lot of fun for all that participate, but in the mean time, feel free to use this thread for any questions or comments you may have on the upcoming campaign.

Again, reading the Announcement Jim as placed on the site's front page under "Top News Stories" will give you a lot of information.

Thanks
Steve
