Hi fellas,

4 years ago our good friend Bruce Miller passed away but he left us with a vast number of builds on his Blitzkrieg Series.

Probably the longest run of Campaign Series so far.

Blitz : Early years.Sept.1,1939-May 1,1941
Blitz II : Africa
Blitz 3: Italy
Blitz 4: Barbarossa
Blitz 5: Normandy

So what do you guys think about a Blit 6 : Berlin ?

Covering the timeline from Ardennes to Berlin
December 1944 - May 1945

Sounds like a great idea John. I've enlisted in a few already, but one that finished later in the year would be good for me.

Sounds good ! After all, we really should bring the ETO portion of the War to a close.

He's the one that started the Blitz Campaigns.
The first 4, for the 5th he delegated since he was already in treatment.

The "Ending Blitzkrieg Campaigns" thread in the first page was his final post.

He started them back in 2008.

I'd be intereseted, later in the year works for me as well. Have a JS-2M that would work, maybe make a scene with some Volksturm figures, my great uncle was awarded the Iron Cross for destroying a Soviet tank with his Volksturm unit.

I participated in the first five so I would love to take part. Bruce was a good friend and I think Blitzkrieg 6 would be great.

Thanks,
Randy

OK done!

Most likely will be a dio w/ a few figures.

Made a little progress on this a few yrs back before being banished to the Shelf of Shame.

* * * HOPEFULLY * * *

Hitler Youth, Berlin locals, maybe Volksstrum in the city's sewer tunnels, and Soviet Infantry above with a T34/85.

For me this proposal is perfect timing, Nito74...

Cheers

I'd rather let this one only for unstarted kits.
But if there a lot of people with started kits I'll allow it but with no more than 50% built.

No problem John, I have several options. I'd kinda like to do the Asuka M4A3(76) but I have the hull and running gear together. I can always do the M4A3E2, it's unstarted! We'll see...
