Since there is only one campaign running at the moment its time to plan some new builds.
Peter Ong aka Trisaw gave me some suggestions and now Im very happy to forward them to all of you. This is one of them:

Civilians: Any scale as long as in civilian clothes (craftsmen, dancers, noblemen, monks, figurepainters any non-military figure is allowed). Include Sci-fi because there are some Sci-fi figures in civilian clothes.
Some traditional civilian cloths include weapons like knifes or such, but it must be obvious it is an element of everyday clothing and not a piece of military equipment).
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 Andrzej,

I have this figure from my review of the Master Box Ltd. figure set "Civilians, Western region, WWII era". The figure and other items are assembled but for my reviews I never clean up them up such as removing seam lines, fill gaps, etc. I can probably disassemble the figure if need be as I usually use a very minimal amount of glue when assembling them. The cart obviously needs repaired in a few areas and I think I will change the rake into a pitchfork. I will leave the decision up to you and the other participants if I can use these items or not.



Thank you,
Randy

Hi guys, first of all, excuse my lack of action in last few weeks. I'm dealing with some serious changes at work and my kids are not making it any easier when I'm back home .

@Peter - Apache are absolutely ok as long as they are depicted during their everyday activities and not during the fight.

@Randy - your figure is OK as it is, you don't have to disassemble it if you don't want to.

CAMPAIGN IS APPROVED AND ON!
feel free to build, paint, sculpt, just remeber to ENLIST HERE

Thank you Andrzej. I might have to take the arms off to do some clean-up anyway. Looking forward to starting on this campaign. Should be a fun one.

Thanks,
Randy

Nico, you've made amazing progress in sculpting since the first figure you've sculpted, and the first one was nice to start with. Good job!

Pete, that's great figure, I always wanted to paint this one (but it has ~35 place on my list between other "must haves" )

Well I have been absent for awhile due to some modeling burnout and personal issues but I am back at the work table now. I have got some work done on my project and so I wanted to show an in-progress photo.



I got the base finished and I have made some sheaves. I made some repairs to the cart and have the base coat of paint on it. I also have most of the painting done on the farmer and the chicken. I just have some detail painting to do and some weathering. I plan on having the cart loaded with some of the sheaves and the rest of them being on the ground. I think I will just have the farmer standing there staring at the rooster. I have an idea for a focus point for the farmer but I will have to see how it turns out.

Thanks for looking.
Randy

Hi Guys,

Just saw this campaign and thought what the heck I have a few possibilities so I plumped for this one.



Along with an old Tamiya donkey to make an Afghan traveling sales man. Only real problem I can foresee is that my copy of this figure had both feet snapped off at the boots so I decided to give him short legs lol. More once I get into it
