I was having a bad day so I decided to check out this thread as a diversion. What a pleasure to see 10 pages of great models. You guys all did a great job. But shonen_red
really made my day.
Great work guys.

Howdy fellas,

Have just enough time to give a quick yell, to let you all know I just finished updating the 'First' post in this thread showing ALL the new members crossing the Finish Line on this Campaign, sporting all their 'goodies'............

Oh! And BTW....after adding a couple of names that apparently feel thru the cracks on me (shame on me), the new # of participants has grown to a Grand total of 150 (One hundred and fifty) fantastic folks!!!!!!
Gotta love them 'even' numbers.....

...check it out.


Tread.

we need an 'Artillery' smiley, don't we!?!

Howdy again fellas,

Just stopping by again for a quick peek.......

To 'lighten' up the debate, it looks like our good shonen_red has covered both bases with his entry.
He's got close support covered with his arm-mounted high mike-mike armament, and the "indirect" bit covered with his shoulder-mounted Howies!!

I'll try to stop back in a bit and update the First post in this thread to show the rest of the members sporting their new 'goodies' (check & ribbon).

Tread.

Hey......what did you guys think of merkava8's Morser?......nice huh?

No it is not artillery. But it's function is close combat support. And then Tank killing.
My only point would be the fact that many people have built PAK guns for this campaign.
I have no real knowledge of a Pak 36, 40 being used in indirect fire either, though they could still fire HE.


It is just My opinion. opinion.



The issue of allowing Pak guns has also been discussed in great lengths. Again, it is not my call to judge this campaign (just trying to help in the absense of Tread), the rules have been posted and I'm beginning to sound like a broken record here. Build what you want, call it what you want. I can't wait for an "Anti-Tank" campaign.

Traditional Artillery was the spirit of this campaign.

Now, where's that little goober that I have throwing a stick grenade. After all, he probably will be using that in the indirect mode as well.... ie: not seeing his target and the ending result will be almost the same "bang".

Hello all,

Well this is my entry, not bad for two days work. The troops are part of the 29th infantry division. I chose this division because I am currently serving with the 29th. Any ways heres the pics. Enjoy!

Personally I wouldn't consider it artillery but since he already has the M8 I wouldn't worry about it either. He still qualifies with the M8

Pz III N, were equpied with the L 24 75MM KwK gun.....



I am still not convinced that this falls under the 'Traditional Artillery' spirit of this campaign. It is not obvious to me that this Pz is an arty piece. Certainly not with the gun elevation being shown. Any tank could be used for Infantry close support with HE, Flechette etc... right? This 'TA Spirit' has been argued to death so I won't bring it up again. It is not my call (but if it was...). Build whatever to have fun.

INCOMING!

Howdy fellas,

Just stopping by for a quick "Hello!". My sincere apologies for not being around lately, but as I've told a few of you in PM's.....I've been completely and totally SWAMPED! lately......

Our good member merkava8 managed to finish his superb 60cm Morser 'Karl' Gerat with the 833rd schwere Artillere Abteilung (that 'bold' type was for you kkeefe... ).
He just requested some help in posting the pics so he can cross the 'Finish Line' with you lot.........so here they are.







and for those of you who want a gander at how hard he works "at the office"...........





Hope that helped Mike.

regards,

Tread.

Pz III N, were equpied with the L 24 75MM KwK gun.

In 1942, The heavy tank companies were to be equipped with 10 pz III N for close combat support.
I, personally, would see know problem with this PZ classed as artillery peice for this campaign. It may not be exactly indirect fire, it is used in the close support role.

Isn't that a howitzer?



I don't know... in the spirit of traditional Artillery, is it?? I'm not one to ever claim to know it all however, I have never seen this type Panzer used as a howitzer.

Someone set me straight here!

the second subject does not depict ARTILLERY (even if you are showing it as an anti-tank weapon) therefore does not fit the criteria for this campaign.



Isn't that a howitzer? I think I read somewhere that PZIII's were mounted with howitzers to support heavy tanks like the tiger.

WOW! Very nice however, the second subject does not depict ARTILLERY (even if you are showing it as an anti-tank weapon) therefore does not fit the criteria for this campaign. The M8 HMC certainly is acceptable and that is a real beauty!!

Congrats!!!

I should make it, too. Working on a 1:1 scale sun porch lately. I thought dry walling was bad until I had to paint the ceiling...

Just a "bump" seeing that we're getting down to the wire. I don't want anyone to miss out.
