Since the second campaign finished, I was curious if anyone's up for a third. After all, there's a lot of subjects to choose from, and they look quite unique for the most part.

Not to mention more and more kits are coming out... Flyhawk's PnzIIJ not the least

Andras:

I have already proposed just such a campaign. My idea is to broaden the base a little bit and include vehicles from not only WOT, but also other video games. My main purpose is to also include "Armored Warfare" (for example)- there are tons of subjects in that game that will be very interesting and should generate some excitement!

Waiting to hear back from the powers-that-be...

FYI- for those of you interested in this proposed campaign, watch this YT vid for an update on some of the vehicles proposed for Armored Warfare. Between that and WOT, BF4 and whatever else strikes your fancy, we should be able to come up with a fairly good campaign!

Sorry John:

I read a few of the tutorials, but did not realize that a thread had to be started first. I will get right on it...

To be honest I'm not sure if the campaign would keep any sort of focus if everything's allowed. It would essentially include all AFVs, from WWI to fictional ones (like the Warthog from Halo, or hovertanks from Starcraft)... I know that there are very broad campaigns, and there are very focused ones, so it might or it might not work.

This is only my thought; others may disagree.

Let's just keep it focused in the three -dedicated- tank games: WoT, WT-GF and AW. Everything else isn't even the same game genre.

Hey Andras,

This sounds like a good idea for a campgaign. I might do a Panzer II Luchs or Soviet MS-1.

Andras: I agree with your sentiment that the campaign may lose focus. I initially thought of putting the proposal on the Kitmaker network general campaign site to allow all the things you suggested (from sci-fi to fantasy to armor etc). It seems that many in the modelling community seem stuck in certain genres- ie. "I only build WW2 fighters/ I only build modern armor/ I only build sci-fi". I thought that maybe we could capture all this and maybe inspire some of the younger ones who may actually put down the controllers and pick up the sprue cutters!

I have changed my mind and agree about the focus part. WOT has some great vehicles as does War Thunder and Armored Warfare is pure eye-candy. Maybe we should go with Darkonar's suggestion and just allow these games. This will allow many modern builds as well as capture the prototypes and one-offs found in WOT. What do you all think?

Dear Rob,

It sounds fine; I really don't mind either way - just had this feeling about the too-inclusive campaign. It might or might not work - I honestly have no clue. It's not a veiled statement against multiculturalism, though . It's just if you try to grab too much, you lose too much. (Or not.) Modern tank games could be in another campaign -AW is getting some really cool, not conventional tanks, too.
