Vote for what GBs you want next year
« on: December 04, 2012, 02:52:38 AM »
folks,

As promised, here is a poll on the next set of GBs we will have.  I am only asking about those for the first 6months of next year at this stage.  Plan would be to kick the first one off in early/mid Jan.

You each have five votes and you are able to change your mind if so desired.  Poll will run until end of December.

Details of each suggestion may be found here.  Feel free to ask for more info though.

Also feel free to lobby for your favourites.

Regards,

Greg

Well, I did say feel free to lobby for your favourites but I am curious what you had to do to get Kate to support you, or what your Better Half has to say... ;).

Euhh... am I on acid, or is the wall behind Kate doing something odd? (Not that it's all that easy to focus on the wall...)

Balkanised has all sorts of fun possibilities...
Desert warfare doesn't need much comment...
Fear & Trepidation is just a good idea...
Coulda Shoulda Woulda would give me a reason to build a Tomcat finally (Canada almost got the Iranian F-14s in 1980...)
Panic just sounds super fun.

One thing I will ask people to consider when voting:  please try to select ideas that allow all members (modellers, profilers and story tellers) to participate.

Voted for...

ISR -  just because "tactical voyeurism" is such a cool figure of speech.
Whiffer's Tigermeet - They're GRREEEEAAAT!
Desert Warfare
Anachronisms - I've got a weird idea involving Jan Sobieski, some hussar's wings and a T-55!
Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda

Cheers,
Moritz

Yeah, look at the outlet in the bottom of the image.  I guess it was a video with a less than steady camera and they tried to blend the moving image of her against a still of the wall.  It wasn't entirely successful, but--as you pointed out--most viewers won't be looking at the wall.

Do another poll with just the four of those.  Everyone gets one vote and only 1 vote.  That should clear it out.
