I have a concept of a kitbash for Snoops, Sensors, Spooks, & Spies etc GB.
Is to say, I now have a concept after browsing thru kits and happened on something.

Books/Movies (& I'm kinda hoping that includes Games)


It could...

That would be great! I second the amended proposal  :)

You have to admit, a "Scale Jihad" GB would have some pretty crazy and creative stuff along with some satirical flair that could have Alvis stopping by...

Well, don't forget you can change your vote if need be.

Re the "Scale Jihad" GB (though I prefer the "Holy Scale Wars" name since it might be less inflammatory), maybe later in the year.  I would be curious to see how it could be run though.

I changed one of my votes from the very well off WWI to add it to the book/movie/game  :)

Thanks everyone for voting - looks like the top 4 choices are:

  • Space GB (both Scifi and Real)
  • WWI GB (includes Extended and Alternate WWIs)
  • Snoops, Sensors, Spooks, & Spies etc GB
  • Book/Movie GB

We will go with these for now - another GB vote will be held later in 2014 to decide what to do after these.

I will also post shortly a suggested calendar for these.

Ok folks, following on from the vote for your preferred GBs for 2014, here is a first stab at some proposed GB dates:

First of all, I am assuming the current "Clear Your Workbench" GB continues until EO Jan 2014.  I have also made most of the GBs approximately 3 mths in duration.  I have noted that up until now, most GBs have been shorter and typically require an extension to be granted.  By making them longer, perhaps this can be avoided.  The downside of this though is that it becomes harder to fit more in…unless we have some overlap.  As this stage, my proposed dates are:

  • Space GB (both Scifi and Real): 1 Feb - 30 Apr
  • Snoops, Sensors, Spooks, & Spies etc GB: 1 May - 28 Jul
  • WWI GB (includes Extended and Alternate WWIs): 28 Jul – 11 Nov, thus matching the real start/end dates of the war
  • Book/Movie GB: TBD

You will note that the Book/Movie GB has a TBD (To Be Determined) status.  If you are happy with some GB overlaps, this can be scheduled in somewhere.  I am open to comments and suggestions so please speak up.

Regards,

Greg

I would imagine not everyone will do all the GB's, my target it to complete one of them without getting distracted by something else.  I would think a week overlap would be fine and even the first one could start say mid-January because not everyone is doing the 'Clear your Workbench' GB but could be lining themselves up for the first one of the year.

Good points.  The dates are just a suggestion at this stage.  Some overlap is fine by me.

There is no such voting.  The only thing "To Be Determined" is the timing of the Book/Movie GB.  No-one is being asked to vote on anything anymore as the poll is closed.

My new proposed dates with some GB overlap are:

  • Space GB (both Scifi and Real): 15 Jan - 15 Apr (possible extension to 30 Apr if demand requires it)
  • Snoops, Sensors, Spooks, & Spies etc GB: 1 Apr - 30 Jun (with possible extension to 15 Jul if demand requires it)
  • Room for possible short, 1 month GB - not yet defined but we can decide closer to time:  1 Jul - 28 Jul
  • WWI GB (includes Extended and Alternate WWIs): 28 Jul – 11 Nov, thus matching the real start/end dates of the war
  • Book/Movie GB: 1 Nov - 31 Dec (with possible extension to 31 Jan 2015)

Note that I still like the idea of having some sort of "clear your Workbench" GB at the end of each year in order to provide some impetus to finish off projects.  I will go with what people want here though.

Please voice your thoughts re proposed dates.  Nothing (except the WWI GB) is set in stone yet.

I see the proposed motion for the upcoming GB schedule and hereby second it. 

Also, I rather enjoy having the "Clear Your Workbench" GB at the end of the year - a sort of unofficial official close to the year.

Agree with all of the above...

Whats a good one month GB?  ??? "Model in a month?" like SSM? Single type? like say F-14 Tomcat? OOB/Paint?
