    2018 CAV Secret Santa exchange

    Its time to paint CAVs, mail them to people, and have fun. Link to the sign up thread below. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82710-cav-secret-santa-2018/ J--
  3. Tldr This year’s SS exchange includes painters from both the Reaper forums and Facebook. You must be a member of one of these sites to participate but you do not have to join the other - unless you want to. Agree to the guidelines for the SS exchange (see below) Answer all of the questions below and PM them to the organizer (me) Paint your assigned miniature and mail it by the deadline Welcome to the 2018 CAV Secret Santa exchange in which we purchase, paint and gift a miniature to another gamer in the spirit of the season. The idea here is to have fun, get to know one another, and spread the joy of CAV:SO. :) Here are our simple exchange guidelines. Please do not sign-up on both the Reaper Forums and Facebook - use one or the other not both. Please keep the cost of your gift to the value of a single blister pack. Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me in a PM. Please don’t contact your SS exchange partner unless I indicate that they are ok with this. I’ve included this as an option in the questionnaire. Please respect the privacy of others. Timeline We’ll accept sign-ups until October 15th. I’ll assign partners by October 22nd. A work in process photo of your miniature is due by November 22. Send the photo to the organizer (me) and I’ll share them to the various groups as appropriate. Ship your miniature in time for delivery to its recipient - December 17th if you’re shipping domestically in the United States. If you’re shipping internationally then you’ll need to send your gift earlier. When painting a miniature for your recipient please respect their requests. Some people love the idea of peppermint striped CAVs others are looking for something they can add to a serious force - keep this in mind. If you are mailing internationally don’t send anything other than the miniature unless your recipient has approved all of the extra items. Customs can be a difficult and complicated process especially for plant matter, powder, and other seemingly innocent materials. Please list only the actual cost of the miniature as the value on the customs form and list the item as a gift. Everyone who signs up must understand that Secret Santas can and do fail. There is no guarantee that you'll receive a model. Such is the nature of these exchanges. If something happens and you can not meet your commitment please contact the organizer (me) as early as possible. I’ll make arrangements to take care of your recipient. There is no shame in this… life happens to all of us. 2018 CAV Secret Santa exchange questionnaire Mailing Information [Your Name] [Your Full Address] Miniature Information [A list of models that you would like to receive in the SS exchange.] [Desired paint scheme and basing - please be specific.

    CAV:SO Army Builder

    I should have been clearer about the infantry, the program does include the different kinds of infantry but not all of the available options. As an example, you can buy packs of infantry that are equipped with a panzerfaust but you cannot find an infantry unit in the basic force constructor with a panzerfaust. You have to build an infantry unit with that specific option in the unit construction program and then it will be available in the force construction program. At least it worked this way at last year's Cav-Con. Perhaps, Jon and his developers have changed it since then...? Over on Facebook @CAVBOSS mentioned that there is an official effort going on to produce a Web based Cav army builder thingy... J--
  6. I was hoping to see you teaching a basing class this year!   Are you going?

    CAV:SO Army Builder

    I have only used it on a Windows PC. It does work there. Be advised that there are some undocumented 'features'...? As an example, not all units that are for sale in real life are in the software. The infantry have to be built in the 'construction' program before you can add them to a force. J--

    Any plans for a rules pdf?

    PDF rules have the obvious advantages: That FAQs can be directly integrated into them. They are searchable. I would pay the full price for the rules again for a consistently updated PDF. I'd also like to buy some more players, and some time to play, and @Savage Coyote's painting skills, @Mastergunz prolific ability to buy and paint everything 15mm scale and under. @CAVBOSS Can you move to Tulsa and make all of these things happen!

    Sound Off for CAV II KS!

    I drove to Oklahoma City today and found CAV on the shelf at Games HQ. Only the Wave 1 stuff but it was nice buy something from a retail store. J--
  10. Generic Fighter box left for the Glitterlands On Friday, April 13th. J--
  11. Box departed on its long journey to the Glitterlands today. Shipping was surprisingly expensive.I used to feel bad for poor @Glitterwolf's mail people, now not so so much. Hopefully, Gliiterwolf and the others down stream will find some stuff they like! J--

    @Savage Coyote I hate you! :) J--
  13. Never seen her before. A 28mm figure with a flaming sword and partial armor. The figure has a base that is part of the cast but she's glued atop a square 'slot-a-base'. She seems to have left in a hurry and forgotten to bring her shirt. J--
  14. My apologies, here are the minis I'm claiming. The barbarian with the axe has stunning detail. I'm really looking forward to painting him. The ladies next to him both have stylish hats and are missing part of their right arms. Not sure what they gave them up to get but I hope it was worth it. :) I love the little pug mini. I hope to use him in a game along with his buddy the big bad wolf. My wife plans to use the sculpting dolls in her Frostgrave warband. I need to repack and ship the box. Should be in the mail on Thursday. Next stop The Glitterlands! J--
  15. Working on the group paint. Grabbed a random color slapped on some paint. Headed for the Glitterlands soon! J--
