  1. HI all I originally started a thread in the Cav section about painting my UTF (united Terrain Federation) I've had to change from photo bucket to flickr for the images will update the wrecked mech as well soon http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73358-utf-possible-paint-schemes/&tab=comments#comment-1520048 Well I finally got the project on the road heres my test pieces almost finished just needs the bases finished off Started with an archer, raptor and Ronin Cavs with 2 ashigaru's missile vechiles did a base coat of purple with a dry brush afterwards then added camo scheme as per my other link with tester pieces of paper finished group quite pleased with the result look decent from a distance on the table no unit symbols or markings will decide on these at a later date
  2. Well here it is part the 66th Legion of the UTF ready for deployment Stored away in a purpose build wooden box with steel paper bottom (all Cavs have magnetic sheet on bases) Been fun sharing the progress of the army and has been a good incentive to keep it going. If your interested heres the thread as I did each batch with some close ups of each type of Cav regards '66'

    CAV:SO UTF Katana (And UTF forces update)

    Look, I actually finally painted a CAV for CAV:SO! And here are a couple of shots of my UTF forces to date. May take a break from painting these guys. I've got lots of other figures waiting, or I might start another CAV faction.....

    CAV SO: Terran Wolf (Reaper 94075)

    Hey everyone! Finally got around to finishing up the final details on my terran wolf tanks. This is my third real attempt at using OSL on these guys and I think I could have done a better job. I just can't seem to make the light reflections "pop" on these models like I could do on the other ones. OSL gurus, any tips for making mine look better? Maybe having more of a gradient? Tried for awhile to get it to look right but I am missing something. The only thing I struggled with was where to put the star. All the stars are going on red sections and are centered on the models, but the wolf didn't really have a good place to do that. I originally went with stars on the back hatches, but I would have had to do 2 to get them to look right. I am happy with having them on the main gun as you see here. Overall, I am happy with these guys, who now get added to my budding terran force: I think it's coming together pretty nicely, but I'm drowning the CAVs in treads now... Simba is next!!!

    CAV SO: Terran Tsukai (reaper 94073)

    Hey all, Lost some sleep last night to finish up these Tsukai for my Terran legion. I wasnt sure how to approach them at first but I really happy with how they came out. They fit in well with the rest of the force. I had particular fun jeweling the cockpit. Take a look, and as always C&C welcome!

    CAV:SO UTF Tsukai

    Another month and some more CAV:SO UTF models done. Up first are the Tsukai. I just got two of these from the kickstarter. But I really like how they painted up so will likely be ordering more at some point. Same colour scheme as all my UTF. I've decided on using a metallic (P3 Blighted Gold with a brown wash) for the windows, some sort of future tech enhanced composite with laser absorptive properties I believe.....
  8. Realizing I wouldn't have time to do my first actual CAV this month due to another project, I quickly mobilized an couple of Ashigaru to make sure I made the RPChallenge quota. It's important to remember to paint the inside of the back missile pod section before gluing....luckily my glue must be getting old as I was able to get the pieces apart.... And here is a group shot of my UTF forces to this point. Hopefully some Big Stompy Robots will be joining the team before too much longer....

    CAV:SO UTF Ryoshi

    The second set of UTF minis I did this month were the Ryoshi. Boy are these guys low and wide...nice and quick to paint though, with some interesting detail you can work with.

    CAV SO: Terran Talon and Raptor

    Hey guys, So after getting the kickstarter box, the Talon was the first CAV I painted. I wanted to get something big as the baseline for my color scheme instead of a tank or APC. Of course, being the first CAV there were a few issues. The original red I chose was an awful contrast to the yellow and had to be painted over. The highlight layer for this cav eventually got tossed for a different combination, so this big fella looks a bitt different than most of the other force. I have been painting for 15+ years (and terribly for most of that), but in the past year I have tried to expand my skill base. I decided I wanted to UTF CAVs to be highlighted 3 ways: Drybrushing (yellows), edging (reds), and layering (windows). I am happy with how these came out and cannot wait to get better. In the past I have really used Drybrushing as a major crutch, though I must admit it works (and quickly, too). Check it out: I also really wanted to try OSL after seeing Skrill's awesome examples with his Rach force. Since the base color is yellow I really didn't have much of an option but white, so I went with a blueish-white for the few lights I could find. I just started doing this today so there is much to be learned, but as a first attempt I am happy with how it came out: I also particularly like how the windows turned out. Here is the raptor, with a slightly more successful implementation of OSL: C & C welcome! More to come later. P.S. Has anyone else noticed that almost all the folks who have painted terran forces and have put them up here went with a desert theme? That seems interesting to me.

    CAV SO: Terran Dingo

    Hey everyone! Newbie here. I got the CAV kickstarter box a few weeks ago and have been really itching to paint something with hard lines for once (old 40k tyranid player). I decided to start with the terrans because I bought planes, tanks, and CAVs from them so it would give me a nice wide range to get comfy with. I decided on a theme similar to that of the imperial fists from Warhammer 40k- yellow with red accents. As I went on, however, the scheme changed more and more until it became a much more rugged desert theme. Take a look: I didn't choose a very time-efficient painting method (will change that when I paint the Rach), but it does look nice. I only use regular old craft paint, except for the inks which are GW. The steps for those interested: Yellow: 1) Mix a 3:2 mix of butternut and nutmeg brown to create the base color, which I call "UTF khaki". 2) After cleaning with soap and water, airbrush everything in a white undercoat (old habits). 3) Airbrush with UTF khaki. The badger intro airgun is worth it's weight in gold for the priming alone. 4) Ink everything up with GW's Reikland fleshshade. It's a nice red color and give the yellow some depth. 5) drybrush with UTF khaki to get the midtones back 6) drybrush with 1:1 UTF khaki : white to get the highlights Red: 1) Paint sections with burgundy. I realized too late that this burgundy was a "cool red" and didn't sit well on its own with the khaki so I had to change up the highlighting. 2) Highlight by edging with a 1 : 1 : 1 mix of burgundy, white, and burnt orange. This makes things a bit warmer and sits better with the khaki. 3) Paint the star freehand. This is the 52nd terran legion and I decided to make their symbol a simple white star. Grey: 1) Start dark, drybrush lighter. Lights: This is my first attempt at object source lighting (OSL). I was inspired by the NOD-like Rach force paint scheme of Skrill. Take a look at his awesome work: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68610-cav-so-bones-rach-force-completed-reaper-voodoo-more/ So I decided to go for a bright white light which actually comes off as a light blue. Multiple light watered down coats. It is not perfect but it is close enough for tabletop quality and I am excited to get better at it. C & C welcome! Lots more will be coming in the weeks going ahead.

    CAV: SO UTF Wolves

    Here are 3 CAV:SO Wolf tanks, done in the same UTF colour scheme as the Dingos I did a few weeks ago. It's a beautiful day out so I took them out on the deck to get some quick pics... As with the Dingo, the turret seems to stay fine so I haven't glued them. Hopefully by the end of next month I'll actually get a CAV painted for my CAV:SO Terran army.....
