Hi folks,

I had to start this off with the process of elimination and these are the ones remaining. The other submissions were either to specific (ie: a specific kit) or much too broad (ie: everything under the sun).

I've grouped them into sub categories and ideally hope to have at least one from each category happening this year.

So without further ado, tell me which ones you like by ranking them (1=Best, 10 = Worst). Each one is a link to the original thread for your reference.

Modern Era Specific

OIF campaign

Best Of British


WWII & Modern Combine

Father & son

Inside Story

Desert Fever - Paint me Yellow

WWII Specific

:Of Wheels and Tracks

Dioramas

Special Forces 1939-1945
Campaign Description:

The object of the campaign is to pay homage to what are now referred to as "Special Forces" who served in WW2. This includes British & US Airborne, Fallschirmjager, Brandenburgers, Commandoes , SAS, US Rangers etc. This will run from initial airborne landings in 1940 to the fall of Germany in 1945. No USMC or Waffen SS as they were basic infantry not Specialist troops. Hitorical accuracy is down to the individual but hopefully as close as possible to accuracy.

Allied Airborne NWE 1944+

In keeping with the feedback received from members, im sticking to a guideline of about 5 campaigns for at least the first half of the year. Once the votes have been tallied, i will try reduce any overlap between campaigns.

Further feedback and suggestions is always welcome. Please PM me about them.

EDIT 1: I will tally the votes by the end of this week, 28th Jan and will try to kick off the campaigns on 1st Feb. All current active campaigns would have concluded by then.

Ooooh! Keep ACUTR!

Long term, very intense modelling for that campaign.

Especialy when you're learning how to "Scratch" from some of the masters!

From the list given, the only one I would consider is "Special Forces 1939-1945". No point on me voting in the rest, as I cannot participate in any more, and don´t want to sway the voting in favor of something Im not involved in.
Good luck with the new job Jeremy.
Good idea to get a poll going and keeping the campaigns a little restrained. Too many sign up, too easily, and big percentages are not finishing!
