Looks great SGTJKJ.
I think Neill has to set it up if its not already.
also i noticed we still dont have a ribbon design yet. any way we could use the top half of the horn blower image on Neills first post, really like it and think it would fit.

I cannot seem to find the campaign gallery to upload pics of the finished figure. Can someone link to the gallery?

I have finished my Rommel figure. The scale is 1/48. This time in a winter setting and not the traditional desert setting.

Looking forward to see and follow more projects for this campaign.

My entry. Due to the late enrollment, the moderator said that I could enter a built and primed figure. I just need to paint it. I'm hoping I can finish it in time.

It's New World Miniature's 120mm resin "Private Military Contractor" with Airborne Miniature's rock plaster base, and a plastic plinth.

These are a few update pictures of a Cont. Marine firring from the fighting top. This coat of paint is used to find flaws in the sculpting and is not ment tobe a primer coat.

Have to drop out. Depth perception is so far off. Painting is real comedy with me sitting there trying to put brush to surface.

I just signed up as was told by the campaign moderator that I can use a primed figure since the deadline is less than two months away. (Somehow, I didn't see or pay attention to this campaign until recently).

This might be a rush job for me, but I'll try my best to meet the deadline.

Hi,

I would like to join although I would be very late and just have two months before the end of June deadline.

As such, does the figure have to be totally unstarted? I do have a 120mm figure built and primed; I just need to paint it. Would that be acceptable for this campaign? I could take a photo showing my starting point for the Campaign Admin to decide.

If not, I suppose I could build a 1/35 figure really fast and go from there.

Is Sci-Fi accepted in this, or does it have to be somewhat realistic and historic to Earth?

(I also sent the Campaign manager a PM).

Thanks in advance.

Using sprue as a base material brings a whole different skillset to sculpting figures.

Well done indeed sir !

Been a long time posting. Here are some WIP shots of my Marine from 1776-78. I plan to have him standing on the fighting top.









The figure is so many colors because of the sprues used to create it.

I do not have a great record in painting figures but this campaign piqued my interest and I have decided to stretch myself. I have ordered Ozmods 1/16 "River Crossing". It depicts an Aussie Digger crossing a river in New Guinea during the Kokoda Campaign. The Kokoda campaign is up there with the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli during World War I in Australia these days.

In terms of Stand Bold it is where the Australians did stand bold in stopping the Japanese advance toward Australia. The other significant part of the model is the soldier is carrying an Owen sub-machine gun. The Owen was the only entirely Australian-designed and main service sub-machine gun of World War II and was used by the Australian Army from 1943 until the mid-1960s.



Looking forward to the mail man delivering it soon.

Quoted Text

This is the Rommel figure from the strategy game “Dust 1947”. He is roughly 1/48ish scale, maybe slightly bigger.

A plastic figure, but still with decent details considering the scale. I hope to do it justice.



That' why I didn't know it.
1/48 th is pretty darned small but I have
every faith in ya good luck buddy.
