  1. Just to make sure I understand this particular FAQ. "Is the enemy model required to be in the AoE of the activating model’s APA system? What if it has both a APA and ECM system? No, jamming does not require targeting data so it less dependent on range and an enemy model equipped with a APA and ECM system will have BOTH systems jammed." You're saying there is no range limit to how far an APA equipped model can jam - from one diagonal corner to the opposite? J--

In my time there I got involved with a Secret Santa (SS) exchange where a group of people got together and agreed to paint and gift a model for a randomly selected member of the SS exchange. In an effort to generate more community activity on the CAV forums I'm curious if there is any interest in a CAV-centric gift exchange? I haven't put together my thoughts on how to organize it yet but thought I'd see if their was enough interest to make it work. I like CAV, I like the Reaper forums but the CAV sub-forums seem very, very quiet. I'd honestly like to get to know more of you and what better way than to paint a mini for my CAV neighbor in the spirit of the season. J--
  3. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    Mine is done should go in the mail tomorrow. I left the base generic so he could model all of his force to look the same. Hope 'D' likes it. I'm pretty sure he knows whose model it is. Looking forward to seeing the other models you paint to go in this force.
  4. Firedrake Blueprint

    You designed the Firedrake...? Awesome, I love that model! J--

  9. Paint Track Apps?

    Any chance we can get Daler & Rowney inks? How about a rich text editor...? The ability to take and store pictures along with my sets...? Wonderful app, absolutely worth more than I paid for it. Thanks! J--

  11. B.A.S.E. System - Take control of your battlefield!

    Seriously debating on backing this. Depends on the size of the terrain. If it works for CAV then I'm in. If it only works for BTech then... maybe. J--

    He was at CavCon. So, was I.
  13. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    Just got in my SS mini to paint. Plan to clean, assemble, and base this week. Paint on model Sunday...? How is your model coming along? J--
  14. CAV @ TotalCon in Massachusetts

    My favorite aspect of the game is the combined arms part. Show off some tanks/aircraft...? Make some LOS blocking terrain. Use painted minis...? Give each player a 'hidden' tactical objective. Capture an objective, damage each unit in another player's force, get a model across the table to the other board edge. That sort of thing. J--

    I'll send the pairings out late tonight so check your Reaper Forums inbox. Don't forget a WIP photo is due by 12/1/2017 but feel free to post all of your baking goods errr... work so that we can all talk about the goodness that is CAV! :) J--
  20. CAV color schemes

    @Savage Coyote I think he's asking about what colors to use in his terrain...? @CarlZog I think a table done in rusty browns and reds could look really good. Sand can be many colors and I think you could get some really neat affects with Red/Orange/Yellow as your base colors. Then do something SUPER contrasting with the foliage - Turquoise??? You could also make the red/orange/yellow table a winter table and put white snow across it in various places? If you had rocks that poked through the surface that were basalt black with grey highlights that would look great. J--
  21. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    It looks like a Snickerdoodle waiting on the cinnamon. I want to eat it! :P J--
  22. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    So far, we have 1 international participant all the way from Australia. I've gone ahead and paired that person up with a 'gifter' and a 'giftee'. I'm sending those pairings out today so that they can get an early start considering the travel time. The rest I'll pair and send out on Friday. Check your inboxes... CAVa Claus is about! :) J--
  23. CAV FM: TVP / Flexible / Bonus

    @hjorhrafn and I are working on our first campaign. I've not really tried the 'upgrades' very much but we intend to allow a selected sub-set of them. I think that'll make for some very interesting games. J--
  24. Building a force in the CAV Force Manager and there is a category called Flexible that allows me to spend more than the 3000 TVP my starter force is set to. I can't find any mention of this in the CAV:SO book. Is this legal? I see a similar category called Bonus which appears to be for buying upgrades. I don't see anything in force construction for this either...? From a noob's perspective the game could use some examples of force construction in a 'stickied' post or 12. :) J--
  25. I think these 3 can work great together. What level of the challenge are you taking on? J--
