I would like to thank "spongya" for the original idea. My proposal is very similar to his albeit with a broader scope.

Many video games have incredible vehicles. This campaign will specifically target armored video game vehicles. Pick your game and pick a vehicle- then build away. Any scale- any manufacturer (including those of you brave enough to scratch build).

Here are some great games for the campaign off the top of my head- World of Tanks, War Thunder, Battlefield (1,2,3,4 etc) and the upcoming Armored Warfare. There are a multitude of choices for armor depicted in video games.

I envisage this campaign to depict in-game vehicles only. The participants will need to state the game and vehicle to qualify. Partially started builds are welcome. Paint and camo is at your discretion- make it look like you would in the game if you had your choice. In progress photos are very strongly encouraged- especially when veering into modified vehicles.

Rules are subject to change. Please follow the general rules laid out in the campaign guidelines. Let's discuss it here and hope for an active campaign.

I'm in with another WoT vehicle, had fun working on my T-54.

So were good with any armor from any game? I remember I bought a Tamiya M2A2 some time ago because I wanted to build it up as one of the vehicles to have survived the atomic blast at Cascade Falls, Washington in the game World in Conflict. As seen here: https://youtu.be/2UIBLcmVFgg

Ah yes, the PC game World in Conflict. For those of you who may not know it, a really cool trailer: https://youtu.be/NnTn1LSG9Zo

Of course, I have/love the Soviet Assault expansion pack: https://youtu.be/KhS-wUdVXf0

P.S. I remembered I also have a kit for the Super Vehicle 002 " Metal Slug " From the arcade game series Metal Slug.

How about one of these from the old 80s arcade classic "BattleZone":





I might be in for this with something a little more 'down to Earth' if the timing with my other campaigns will support it.

If it's still a go I'd be interested. I'd love to try my hand at a Tier I WoT subject.

If the campaign starts soon, I will be in. Armored Warfare servers are down for a few days because of the transition from closed beta to open beta testing. I had in mind to brigde the gap by building a model or two. Postman brought me a LAV150-90 and a BMD-2 yesterday.....

Is the WOT MKIII campaign going to be happening or is this it's replacement?

Hey Tim,

I can't speak for WOTIII but I don't think this was intended as a replacement, but rather to open it up to builds from any video-game, including WOT.

cheers

Right here. You'll see a small rectangle to the right, with a list of current participants, on top of that list is the Enlist button.

Cheers!

Yikes! It seems we have a campaign! This is great. I will probably be entering a few things. My first build will be a bit of a surprise- not sure it's even possible yet (stay tuned)!

Love the "BattleZone" idea, Mark C! I am always interested in scratch building projects as I learn a lot from them.

Takom's new Chieftain would be a good candidate for you AW players. I played it in pre-beta and it is one sweet looking beast.

I have multiple ideas and have to do a little planning on what to build first. More to come- good building all!
