    Simba CAV

    Oops...belly down then! :) Im afraid the pic we had of that is AWOL so I apologize for that. Maybe we can get something together again in the future.

    Independents

    If your entire force group meets the requirements of a faction it can use the doctrines and you can call it anything you want. By the rules it is part of that faction.

    Simba CAV

    Hes after a picture I think of the Simba in its "prone" position. It is designed to squat down and go belly up on the ground and I remember having a pic of that way back but not sure where it might be now. I will look around.

    CAV Nightshade & Skeleton Knight on Horse

    Sorry to hear yours was missing a piece. In the future just let us know at custserv(at)talon-games(dot)com and we will make it right!

    CAV Nightshade & Skeleton Knight on Horse

    Great job!
  7. Yes
  8. We had announced it during the KS, there just wasn't a "name" for it yet! :)
  9. Just a note on the release of "Bones Black" since I have received several emails asking about its use for CAV minis... The plastic and process being used is the same we had already switched to. If you have seen or received the CAV Enforcer model there you go! All NEW models going forward (which includes all of the models in CAV KS3) will be made with this process. Unfortunately we cannot go back and do any existing plastic figure without new molds being made.

    Bones Black and CAV

    This is the same material we had already switched to last year with the release of the Enforcer CAV and will be used for all of the new figures coming out for CAV KS 3. Unfortunately we cannot use it for any other figure we have already released as the process to cast with it requires a different type of mold.

    The Malvern Obake

    The Malvern's Obake is a 8 DT Attack model with dual light autocannon's and four medium guided-missile launchers. It is designed to add a long-range option to an Attack Squad, sitting back and throwing GMs at anyone unlucky enough to show themselves and using the ACs to dissuade any lurking infantry or aircraft from inserting themselves close by. It can also be used in a Fire Support Squad to give it a little close-in support. With TAG, an Advanced Targeting Comp and a Wizzo to help out with fire missions, the Obake is sure to find a home in any Malvern Force Group! What's your thoughts? A lot of people don't give the Autocannon much credence in CAV: SO until they come out of the wrong side of one! With the Full Auto SA, even a light AC can punch through the toughest of armor with a little luck. For example, let's say the Obake cuts loose at a Hard Armor 8 opponent at medium range (a base to hit of 7+) with both light ACs (RAV 1) on Salvo with a Target-Lock. That's a total of +3 to-hit Situation Modifiers (+1 for Salvo, ATC, and Wizzo) with a roll of "6" and "1." With Full Auto the Obake decides to re-roll the "1" and gets another "6" making it a critical success and adding an additional 1d6 roll (a "4") to add to the Combat Roll. So, now the final roll ends up being whopping "19!" That 12 more than it need to-hit, combined with the weapon's RAV of 1, making the MoS +6, resulting in 2 DTs of damage!
  12. The Starhawk I was the Terran's first attempt at an early CAV design in 2210, but it wasn't until 2243 that the first modern-era design, the Starhawk IV entered service, quickly followed by the Starhawk V in 2249 with upgraded armor. The Templar's adapted the Starhawk series into their own growing military as the Warhawk but chose to use it as a more long-range "sniper," changing out both main weapon systems in it's final configuration. The CAV Kickstarter 3 includes both figures as a reward level and comes with the parts to build either model-type (leaving you with some great extra conversion pieces to boot)! Not a backer? You can still join up at https://ks.reapermini.com/cav3 today! Happy 2019 to all of our CAV supporters!

    To this day, any FLGS with old CAV inventory can: 1.(All metal CAVs) Return to Reaper and receive a credit they can use for any other Reaper Product. Please contact business(at)reapermini(dot)com for complete details. or 2. (All metal CAVs, or plastic blister-carded CAV minis) Return to Talon Games for a credit to use to exchange for other Talon Games product. Please contact sales(at)talon-games(dot)com for more information. These are both great ways to get rid of old stuff and bring in newer SKUs or in our case, bring in the new version of the game with the new plastic minis (If you have a bunch of old metal laying about)!

    Happy Holidays 2018!

    Just a quick thank you to all of our backers and supporters during 2018! This was another great year for CAV as we continue to grow and attract new players. 2019 looks just as spectacular and we hope you and all your family and friends have a safe and blessed year!!!
  16. Just an additional note. I have added a currency converter to CAD on the site to test it out a bit and see if it helps (or causes confusion).
  17. All prices, charges etc are in USD (though paypal or your credit card provider will make the conversion). Free shipping on all orders over $35 USD (around $46 CAD last I looked) on the talon.games site and yes a very FEW of the Big Dictators (I noticed earlier a couple went out over the weekend already in Canada!) are left and we will not be doing any more of this design (we are working on the Starhawk VI now).

    CAV Secret Santa 2018

    Received my beautiful Wight from Tom/SparksMurphy and the land down under! Thanks Tom! I put it right to work here in Kansas watching over the herd!

    By model or by section?

    The rules are designed to run by squad, but a couple of cards per side is hard to shuffle, so I would suggest using colored dice or poker chips in a bag to draw from to keep up the randomness for smaller games. I have run smaller games by model, but I think it loses the intent of the speed the game should play with and there are enough things in their to counter losing the initiative IMO. It also makes people think about that next move just in case they don't get the initiative they need. Please email us at custserv(at)talon-games(dot)com with convention info and we would be glad to provide some goodies to hand out!

    No telling who went pee pee in their cornflakes at some point. It never ceases to amaze me how some game retailers stay in business with some of the attitudes I have come across over the years. :(

    Sorry but we won't be offering them for resale.

    Please note if your local store has any CAV models left in metal and has been hesitant to pick up the new edition or plastic models, they can contact us to arrange for a swap of the older figures with new product.

    Shouldn't be anything noticeable. A lot of the KS1 models were scanned from the original metal masters and that was one.
