I have debated the bust issue myself as I have some. I think that we should have a separate campaign for just busts. Someone can propose a campaign similar to this but for busts only to see how that goes. Pirate figures would be allowed for this campaign.
No silly questions, it is my understanding that this thread basically becomes a category, one can post all photos and comments in the one thread. Folks are allowed to create a new thread under this campaign category just for their project. Folks can also create a thread else where in kitmaker but that is harder to track but as some folks are making a figure here for this campaign to be added to a vehicle that are building elsewhere that is possible too. I would say in that case, posting in this thread a start, in progress and completion photos would be needed to keep track of easier.
One more stupid question:
There are different large scale tank commander half figures with a full cupola around them, the AA MG and other stuff. Sometimes even with a piece of the turret roof. German tank commander for example. US tank commander (which is close to a full figure too).
Well, I am not inclined to build a 1/9 scale tank turret, at least not a complete one; not to mention a whole tank. So I just want to ask if such a 200mm sized tank commander with a cupola around him might be allowed for this campaign?
Being the first campaign for figures on this site, I think anything goes OOB, Frankensteined or 100% scratched built, builders choice. So say a Friederich 1.0 would be allowed.
I like the idea of allowing started, hate the idea assigning a percentage.
My current thoughts are what is important to figure modelers?
Friederich 2.0 would be too far along in the process but would a primered Alpine only figure be allowed? Still have a good way to go. Not saying your planning to use these just used for illustration purposes.
I would like hear what others have to say on what should be that go/no line on started figures?
@ Tank_1812. Nope, no ‘Friederich 1.0, 2.0’ or anything remotely related to my railway diorama.
However, I have several partially started figures in various states of completion. Some need further modification, heads, hands, posturing, detailing, etc. Some just need to be painted. Many will remain in cold storage if I don’t get a fire lit under my a$$… However, there’s no way I’m starting anything new.
Would be great to squeeze something into a campaign. Otherwise, I totally understand.
I think the idea is to use the campaign to pass on tips and techniques. It really doesn’t matter what your skill level is. Everyone will learn something here. Whatever level you are at now, you’ll be better when the campaign finishes. But, you have to take part to get the most out of it. Just my tuppence worth…
