Ill represent the opposition with something Russian. Possibly an already started T-34 with interior, or something else fresh.

Happy Modeling,
Zon



Zon,

Just enlisted for this one, probably my favorite battle of all time.

I'll be contributing a diorama (w/o vehicles, as long as this is acceptable) mid-Sept '42, factory district.

Been collecting figs, arty pcs, books, bldgs, detail accessories etc for awhile now, but was never able to sustain any momentum towards a completion.

Cheers
Dave

A dio figures only, certainly fits the rules Dave:
The Rules and Regs
The Campaign's scales will 1/6 to 1/144 and encompass air, ground, and figures. All historical, no Sci-fi, please.

Welcome aboard

Thanks guys
This gives me a very good reason for a refresher somewhat with my copy of "Armageddon in Stalingrad" Vol 2, Sept-Nov by David Glantz. And were still weeks away! woo hoo!

Years ago I started on a few of the figures, a couple bldgs, etc. But def still in the assembly stage.

Should be a great campaign!

Cheers

Hi Everyone,
I added the award to the campaign that was provided by Peter Battle.

Thank you Peter for taking the time to design for us an awesome looking ribbon!

You're welcome. Glad you and the guys liked it. It is very different to the usual ribbons, but it kind of stands out for that reason.

Oh goodie, another Target

I expect a few more will roll in with you and Mark once the campaign starts Zon. The only Russkie kits I have are too late to be in Stalingrad.



Well, my already started T-34 is an /85, so too late for Stalingrad. Since Gaz jumped in with a /76, I'm thinking I might go for a fresh KV-1.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

Greetings,
With all the armor running around, I'll have to counter that with an Eastern Express Il-2m3 Sturmovik.

Count me in!

This is my first campaign, I won't be adding too much variety but I've had an idea on my mind ever since I picked this hobby up again.

I'll do a 2 part diorama, one a Mk III J as well as a T34, both small dioramas, some figures etc but on matching bases. I think they'll compliment each other well.

Theo,
Welcome to the campaign. I'm glad you'll be joining us. I think a two part dio would be great.

Are vehicles from Field Marshal Manstein relief group allowed even though they didn't make it to Stalingrad?

Thanks Gaz, we'll see how long it lasts this time around.
New Year res was to join AND complete some Campaigns. So I enlisted in 10 so far! woo hoo

Yes Peter thanks for the ribbon, looks great!

Good one First Sergeant, they do make juicy targets!

I haven't posted any fotos on here in quite awhile, for me it'll be a refresher course after soo many yrs of just lurking around

Cheers

well, Dave, I'll get Gaz to set his calendar reminders so he can nag you once a week to make sure you finish the build

Glad you like the ribbon, another reason to finish....

Don't you remember, Peter that I appointed you Official Campaign Nagging Officer?
