I thought Kasserine was in North Africa. Husky to the Gothic Line?

I'm kinda leaning toward Italian Front 1943-1945 ... for simplicity's sake. Should make making a ribbon easier, too.

"From Kasserine to the Alps"

Very tempted to do a M13/40 "Defense of Rome`43" for this one.....

Italian flag with 1943-1945 written over it? Maybe shorten the "text" to 43-45?

The Kasserine pass is indeed in North Africa.
The thinking was that operation Husky sort of picked up where the fighting in North Africa left off. The idea for a name was also a wink at the Crusader to Gazala campaign.
Gazzas suggestion Italy 1943-1945 describes the intention of the campaign a lot better.

Okay, I'm in. Lots of kits to choose from. Maybe the AFV Club SdKfz 251/17 Ausf C used by the Herman Goering Division in Sicily. Or maybe the Bishop SPG in Sicily... another Bronco zillion part build Gaz

Already signed up for the MTO Campaign which overlaps this but I think I can come up with something to build so I'm in.

Glutton for punishment! I was thinking Tamiya on this one... But I do have a Dragon Brummbar, too.

Dear Gaz,
That's another great campaign idea! I'm in with a Bronco Chaffee (march-april, Italy, 81st Recon Squadron, 1st Armored Division).

Cheers,

You know I am in. Though I wish you had announced this about 3 weeks ago before I started not 1 but 2 Italian Theater Shermans which I have gotten to the paint stage!

I do have other kits in my stash which I can make work though

Robin,
I like how you're thinking. Maybe someday someone could do a Mareth Line to Husky campaign. I'd love to do a Tiger in Tunisia.
Take care,

Guys,
I should have checked first. I think the Mods might have a problem with overlapping the MTO Campaign.

Anybody got a problem with waiting until December?

No problem with me, I would be a late starter with another I have subscribed to, so December works well for me.

Hi Everyone,
As we have plenty of interest, I've submitted the proposal for Italian Campaign 1943-1945 to run from December 1 2018 through June 1 2019.

I'm in the MOT Campaign with a Tunisian "Tiger", but I probably can come up with something. I've got the Dragon Commonwealth Infantry figure set so I'll probably do something along with them...maybe Free Pole Forces....though I'll be honest, I don't think I've seen Italian Campaign Free Poles forces in tropical kit.

Come to think of it, I have Dragon's 10th Mountain Division figure set too. It's a nice set but it has limited use. I might save it for a what-if Ice Station Zebra type build.

Decisions, decisions...I'll figure something out.
