Sal,

I'd be interested, but it's a long way off! (I've got several SP guns in the stash...)

I'd be up for this campaign myself. I have an Italeri 75mm Infantry Gun that I could make. Also a timely campaign with such recent releases like Dragon and AFV Club's 150mm sIG33, Dragon's 105mm Howitzer, and Bronco's 17pdr.

Gary, what time frame would fit in with the schedual at the moment? There seems to be quite a lot on the plate now, that is why I thought late next year. I am open to any time frame.

My thought on rules are simple; if it made the earth move, was either towed, self propelled, or dropped into position then used for mass destruction (not anti-tank) though if the gun fired gp also. GOES. my 2 cents.

I would say August would be the earliest. I think the people on Armorama have definitely hit their limit on campaigns.

I'd be up for this especially late next year, most of my campaigns will be finished or finishing by the time we reach the last quarter of 2011. Nice idea for a campaign,

I'm in late next year. I should really start that M109 in my stash, converting it to a Swiss M109 KAWEST. I would probably need more than 6 months for that though... I also have an M7 and a T19 in the stash so I'm in however long it is.

Cheers!
Stefan

PS: What about supporing vehicles, such as tractors or the M548?

I have 88mm Flak 36 in my stash waiting for opportunity to start.

I agree it should not start earlier then September next year.

I can't resist an artillery Campaign. Count me in. I've a bunch of choices to choose from, but cyberhobby's Sig has been calling to me from the stash, so - I may answer that call.

Cheers,
Mike

I forgot to ask, will this be restricted to 20th Century artillery or will pre20th be allowed as well.

Sounds good, but Rule 3 seems a bit restrictive - there was a guy on the web building a 1/6-scale (!) model of the 80cm Dora rail gun...

Ya never know when GI Joe will need to lob shells across a whole county!

@ Sal: I like that rule also.

@ Tom: you know rules are ment to be broken, so since I ( and a second in command to be named later) can give a yay or nay who knows what shows up.

@ Matthew: thanks for the excitement, I am glad that I could in some small way make some one happy.
