  1. Thanks @Dilvish the Deliverer, I need to pass it on to the glittery canine asap before we lose anymore more postpeople. :) J--
  2. Your poor mailman, our box hasn't even started yet. J--
  3. Infantry in Cav?

    I really like the way @Doublesix66 and @Jeneki are thinking. I want this to be a combined arms game. J--
  4. I'm up for a group paint mini. I'll send my address to Dilvish who I met at Reapercon last year and who was my victim in the CAV Secret Santa last year! :) J--
  5. Glitterwolf, I'm sending you the box from the heart of America's Midwest where there happens to be a curious deposit of lead crystals in the oddest old forms. I'll make certain it contains some lead for you if you like. :) J--
  6. Infantry in Cav?

    I love the look of the Simba Walker and I like the idea of a Mechanized force but the game is more CAV centric and to CAVBOSS' point infantry are a side note. That said I've played a couple of stands before along with a Simba. A mechanized force requires a large investment into transports. The terrans have: Merlin 123 pts carries 1 stand of PA Infantry Tsukai 130 pts carries 1 stand of PA Infantry (2 if you take an upgrade to its capacity) Simba 575 pts carries 2 stands of PA Infantry The Simba is gorgeous but for its cost + the cost of its infantry it doesn't have enough impact on the battlefield. -imo. Unless the scenario specifically requires infantry to accomplish some objective. J--
  7. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    ...and with that I think this SS is complete. I believe we had 1 figure go amiss but the person it was intended for was gifted a mini of his choice and everyone received something. If by any chance this was not the case then message me and I'll settle up with you directly. J--

Chat, share tips, tease us with WIP photos or text - but don't give away who you're painting for. CAVa Claus is watching... :) J-- ############### ORIGINAL POST BELOW ######################## I come to the Reaper Forums from the Privateer Press forums. 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--
  9. Sign me up I can start a box. I will ship internationally. Broken Arrow, Oklahoma WOOT! J--
  10. Kitbash Competition

    Reading the thread below gave me the idea to organize a friendly 'KitBash' competition. Something like... everyone chooses a CAV and converts it in some meaningful way. Competition runs for a calendar month. We post a before and after image and then @CAVBOSS picks the winner(s). Just something fun to do really... Any interest...? Now that the CAV Secret Santa is winding down I'd be happy to manage the little bit of 'admin' the contest would require. J--

    Here is what I'm workin on. J--
  12. Kitbash Competition

    My thought was both but there wasn't much interest. J--
  13. RIP Ursula K. LeGuin

    I honor her work and bemoan her passing. J--
  14. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    Strangely enough, I saw him post about it on Facebook. I've asked him to post here. J--
  15. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    I prefer the old schedule - temps are cooler, Labor Day weekend is a 'big' travel weekend in the states. I like the looks of the new venue but as a consumer I can't see any advantage to the change in schedule. J--

    Texas + August != Texas + October Much sweat, many showers :( J--
  17. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    This is a list of people whose SS gift was shipped but I can't find any confirmation that they received it. If your name is on this list please post in the thread and let us know if you've received your SS gift and how fantastic it is! :) @CitizenCane @Mastergunz @Jeneki Thanks! J-- PS - First post edited to reflect current SS status.
  18. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    Certainly laugh, I love the tanks and the scheme. Well done! Don't forget you owe us Pics Zeke. :) J--
  19. Kitbash Competition

    I am a total 'tread head' as @hjorhrafn can testify to. The contest is open to any CAV model. The more non-CAV the better. J--
  20. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    In case you hadn't seen it Pegazus went all out on his WIP for the CAV SS. J--
  21. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    I updated the status of the first post to show whose models have shipped / been received. Please post when you've received your model even if you choose not to open it until Christmas. It helps us track who has received their gift and who we might need to supply a replacement painter for. Please include a photo or two and some idea of how you plan to use the model. The SS exchange is really about camaraderie and fellowship both of which require communication. J--
  22. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    @Savage Coyote I really love the weathering on your model. There are plenty of places on the internet to see how to weather larger scale models but few that show how to do it on smaller models. Perhaps we could encourage you to write a little something up about how to do it...? J--
  23. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    Here is the latest addition to the 333rd Adon armored reserves. This militia unit is equipped with a just enough castoff and captured equipment to maintain their status as a 'fighting unit'. Intercepted Terran intelligence describes the unit as 'uncommonly good' and 'the Keeblers' despite the 333rds lack of actual combat experience. Thanks to Jeneki for the most excellent tanks! J--
  24. CAV forum Secret Santa...?

    While I won't say its worse, I'll throw pink the same general difficulty level. J--
  25. 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--
