Greetings all I have submitted a Campaign Proposal:

" Operation Commonwealth Thunder "

This GB will be 6 months in Length from 1 Jun 13 to 1 Jan 14, But subject to change if Administrators see fit.

It will Encompass any vehicle,tank,arty,troops or Misc IE Bridgelayers, Wreckers,Amphibians, That served the Commonwealth Nations from 1939 to 1945.
This includes vehicles of outside manufacture of the Country of use ex. Sexton SPG (CAN) British Use. M4 Sherman (US) New Zeland use.
Builds can be OOB or Whole Hog, Can be just figures or vehicles stand alone or in Dio.
You have as many entries as you want but will only recive 1 ribbon regardless of how many are submitted complete.

What do you all think? I kinda thought this up to revive some campaigns of old such as "Canuck Steel " from 2005.

Regards
Eugene

Here is what the Ribbon will be. I couldnt get the polish and NZ logos on there as I dont have a good editior this was photbucket.

Nice ribbon
And though I don't have anything in the stash right now that would fit the bill here I'm sure that come kick off time I can get something if I'm not too bogged down with the 20 other campaigns I signed up for

Count me in as well. Not sure what I'll be doing yet. Maybe something in Italy or maybe go buck wild and do something in the Pacific.

Looks like my second half of the year is shaping up well.

Alright!! I was hoping u would pop in. I have been studying your builds an posts, I think I have read around 1000. Hopefully Kevin, Digger and The Bear will pop in to add to the stellar crew we have so far, and we'll have an even more kick A@@ campaign than I had intially imagined.

Sgt. JKJ Inever got to see that finished 109 crashed on the Beach u did. I would love to see it .

Hello,

I am an HF member but want to do a Matilda II (Italeri ex-Esci, 1/72) by the time of the UK IPMS nationals in November. So, that fits pretty well with this,

Howdy Y'all:
I've got a stupid question. Does the model have to be of a vehicle from a Commonwealth country or can it also be from Great Britain? I wanted to do a Crusader Mk I/II in N. Afica.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"
