I don't see that this is an official campaign yet
My Strmmorser Tiger arrived today that I was planning to use in this one, looks like a cool kit and it comes with link and length treads and a interior
So I'm ready to go here if this becomes official

Hi, Sal!

Things do seem to have been quite quiet on the potential wurf campaign front - nobody spoke up for a while and I'm pretty sure that I didn't yet get to the magical 10+ Gary K will need for approving a formal campaign proposal.

But now that you have the SturmTiger in hand and have warmed things up a bit... let's see if there is / are any more rocket-heads out there looking for a campaign in which to express their esoteric lusts and whists!

Come on, WWII war-rocket fans! Another warm body or 2 and I'll be able to submit a campaign proposal! For all: The "draft" rules and concept are posted at the front end of this thread, and I'll "formalize" them for a proposal soon - if you have any ideas or suggestions in this "department" please punt them forth so that I can incorporate same!

Oh, and hey? I have no real idea what I am doing here yet! I'll suppose that we will want a ribbon... YES! So, how does that work? I've not ever done a ribbon for a campaign... Anybody want to help me with this?

Also willing to help. Though I'd like an idea of what you want. Maybe a banner too?

Yep! That looks like 10, and I guess we are all still game? In which case we should be a GO and I'll get that campaign proposal rolling! I'll start by revisiting the concept and draft rules posts and put together a "final draft" for folks to ponder - next day or so.

Campaign ribbon visions...

Thanks for the offers of ribbon-help - I'll take you up on them! I'll pm you guys with some ideas I am toying with and we'll see what develops...

As to a "banner"... I'm not even sure what exactly a "campaign banner" is... probably seen many on campaign threads without recognizing the beasts for what they are! Maybe we'll get there, too!

Bob, that grey 'signature' area under everyone's posts where people usually have quotes (if you don't see it you'll have to click on 'Show User Signatures').

There's a space on the right side of that for banners. It's possible to make them 'move' (multiple pictures saved over one another).

Both Rob and Sal have banners in their signatures. Keep in mind that's as big as the banner can be.

Here are some German rocket artillery badges for inspiration.

I have the old italeri katyusha somewhere, this campaign would give me the excuse and hopefully the push to build it. Count me in

Hi Bob,

I was wondering what happened to the campaign itself.

Count me in. I guess that should add up to 12 -- the dirty dozen!

I have an Italeri Werfer 42, Trumpeter Hotchkiss, and just eyed a Mirage Zu Fuss in the stash to choose from.

Cheers,

Tat

I believe the campaign proposal has yet to be submitted to the admin.... Bob, any news from mission control?

Cheers,

Thanks for the bumps, Sal, Tat.

ALL:

Sorry, Guys! This has alas sort of slid off my radar for a bit - things have been mondo complicated the past 3+ months and I've not been "feelin as much love" of late as a guy might wish for, what with being "sequestered" (I'm one a those feds...) and work-loads and stuff. And I already bit off way more than I've been able to do for some reviews and blogs...

I WILL pick this wurfy biz back up shortly! PROMISE! We WILL make this happen!

@ George, Matt; Welcome into the list! A rocket campaign can always use more Nebels and Katyushes! And, hey! You are keeping a balance, there, guys! 1 Axis, 1 Allied!

So, what's going on with this Campaign idea? I believe this one will serve right along side my Howitzer and Rail Guns Campaign but dealing with those rocket systems that everyone has one, a kit that is.

I would love to enter my DML Scud MAZ-543 in this... that is if we get more people involved!

Hey Bob, if you cannot or don't have the time (that I can understand) I can run this for you... just as long as John takes those that were interested in it in the past. Looks like maybe 3 more this month so what ya say?


Let me know!

Ive got a Nebelwerfer somewere in my stash too... grabbed somewhere.. some time ago (Revell/Esci Cooperation, maybe 70ties/8ties). Had planed this as an in between build, but until Id have found it, paint, plaster or everything else worth a break would have dryed
So a perfect chance for the kit...

Jeff thanks for taking this up. Bob, no disrespect to you, I just thought of bumping this neat idea of yours and get the candle lit!

I have a beute Hotchkiss with rockets on the side, and a couple of candidates from the stash too.

Oh, no problem.

I really like to run Campaigns but sometimes things come up and I cannot finish my work.


I do hope he gives me the green light so we can get it submitted. It might be the straw that broke the camels back for me but it will sure be fun doing it.
