Since there is only one campaign running at the moment it’s time to plan some new builds.
Peter Ong aka Trisaw gave me some suggestions and now I’m very happy to forward them to all of you. This is one of them:
Body Armor Campaign: Any figure wearing body armor, be it a knight, Samurai, SWAT, soldier, Sci-Fi, etc.
Scale: any
Start:: January 2014 or TBD
Duration: 6 months

Please post here if you support this idea and want to participate in this campaign.

Hi,

well, i failed to finish or even to start many campaigns where i enlisted last year, i was far from figures most of the time. So i want to elist with more pertinence......BUT, i recently sculpted a 75mm french soldier in Mali (2013 Serval operation), i would like to enlist with this one (there are more probability that i finish one which is yet sculpted !)

As the french army adopted anti-bullet vests (so my fig wears one) and my fig is not painted yet (as if i just bought it from the store), does it fits the conditions ???

I can't show you the fig now because i sculpted it for a new free web magazine (from a french scale modelers forum where i'm registered since many years) which is not yet on line and i promised the exclusive. I'll show you it when it
get out.

Cheers

Modern military armour Okay?



The definition of armor is "a covering that is used to protect an individual from direct contact weapons or projectiles, usually during combat (...)" so YES, absolutely OK.

I'm late signing up, just noticed this campaign.

Currently kit bashing a figure of Red Sonja, and is already at the painting stage - but I've kept photos of the build progress. Would this still qualify?

regards,
Jack

I have decided this is my entry.




It is a one piece resin model, I have stripped it and undercoated it. I also aim to do a Gulf war desert rat figure too.

A little more shading and base co;our to face. Oh shield done too.




Face needs oils then a few bits to finish.
