I'm in. Will be doing something WWI. The scale on the campaign page says 1/6th to 200mm, I am sure (hope) that is a typo.

Sal: Look a few posts above bud, already asked our fearless leader and he said it's a-ok to include a build from another campaign

I'm going to be including a whitewashed KT from the Tiger campaign, whereas the diorama and figure will be specific for this campaign

Hi Scott,
Was thinking about doing these frozen guys
Photobucket
In an Urban setting (Urban Warfare diorama campaign ) in Stalingrad hiding from a White Washed KV-1 that will be built for the Killer KV Campaign
Does that work or do I need a separate build altogether

You can add one more to the count. I enlisted today. I have never done any kind of winter scene so it should be fun.
