I love the details. I am not fond of the mustard color, but to each their own.

I'm not a fan of the yellow either, but it did turn out quite well. Did you undercoat it with something?

I did a dry brush of ruddy leather and then layered the yellow.

I like mustard yellow and have done a few figures with it, effective for a force that operates primarily on savannah. The scheme is simple, but effective, you show off the details well. The only thing you have to watch out for with all those large flat areas is the wash pooling where you don't want it and not going into the recesses particularly the join between parts and panels. A quick drybrush with the mustard yellow would have made everything stand out just a little more without giving it too extreme a highlight.

I was not sure how they would look but I like the way they turned out This is the 1st. Platoon, of a Mercenary Company, with a CAV as the CO. Yes they are mine.

The Ogre is the CO/Fire Support.

The three mechanized platoons are for assault.

The one Hover platoon is for flanking or exploiting a break through of the enemy lines.

This is another company done by Spaztica, from which the Recon Platoon came from, last four pictures, for my article "MercNet After Action Report".

Okay, so here is the company with Fighting Pirannha Decals.

As is evident on the second Wolverine, I damaged a decal on the second tank. New decal setting fluid I was not familiar with is quite strong. I thought I was using very little, but that was way too much, I just dampen a tooth pick to put it on.

Well the only other thing I would want to add would be black numbers, and a Terran symbol to the left front, if they made one. So the David Hackworth Company is ready for duty.

This is the first job done for me by Spaztica:  post-9266-0-01475000-1426440189_thumb.jpg 

I wanted a winter unit, so this is what I received trudging through the snow.

      Here's a Ritterlich Cataphract attack CAV painted in the 5th Dornheim Brigade's scheme.  The Cataphract is available for sale and this is one of the grey bones miniatures from the first kickstarter!

      Here is the CAV Lion II anti-grav tank from the upcoming kickstarter.  This resin master turned out great; the final will be in the grey Bones used by CAV!  Scheme is from the 5th Dornheim Brigade, "Marienburg Dragoons."  Their tanks are painted a dark grey while the CAVs wear the light blue and black.

      Hey all!  Here is a resin master of the new upcoming Cheetah attack CAV!  I've painted it in the scheme of the 5th Dornheim Brigade, "Marienburg Dragoons."  The forthcoming model will be in the CAV grey bones which also paint up pretty nice!

      Getting started on my Cavcon models. Fielding a Templar army from scratch in 2017 is a bit of work.
       
      Thanks to @Vil-hatarn and @Watchman for helping me find them. :-]

      I'm confused by what SA: TAG does in CAV. 
       
      In the SO rules on page 124-125 it is never clear what a TAG does - at least not to me. In the errata, it says that, "...the attacker may "paint" and fire guided missiles at a designated target during the same combat action."
       
      In the SO rules page 113 it says that Guided Missile require either a Target Lock or a TAG in order to fire.
      In the SO rules page 115 it says that rockets with the'semi-guided' upgrade (page 136) can take advantage of TAG.
       
      Here are my questions:
      Does the TAG confer a Target Lock? Does the TAG allow the use of a targeting computer bonus against the painted target? Can the TAG be used by other units in the friendly force? If it cannot and it can only benefit Guided Missiles and semi-guided Rockets then why does the Spartan who has no GMs and no Rockets have a TAG?  
      I looked through all of the data sheets and I found 17 models with the SA:TAG. Of those 17 only 5 had GMs and none had semi-guided Rockets.
       
      I must be missing something. Why would all of those units have TAG if they can't make use of it?
       
      Thanks for your time and understanding.
