WE ARE LIVE... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/272456130/talon-games-cav-strike-ops-iii
This year’s SS exchange includes painters from both the Reaper forums and Facebook.
You must be a member of one of these sites to participate but you do not have to join the other - unless you want to.
Agree to the guidelines for the SS exchange (see below)
Answer all of the questions below and PM them to the organizer (me)
Paint your assigned miniature and mail it by the deadline
Welcome to the 2018 CAV Secret Santa exchange in which we purchase, paint and gift a miniature to another gamer in the spirit of the season. The idea here is to have fun, get to know one another, and spread the joy of CAV:SO. :)
Here are our simple exchange guidelines.
Please do not sign-up on both the Reaper Forums and Facebook - use one or the other not both.
Please keep the cost of your gift to the value of a single blister pack.
Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me in a PM.
Please don’t contact your SS exchange partner unless I indicate that they are ok with this. I’ve included this as an option in the questionnaire. Please respect the privacy of others.
We’ll accept sign-ups until October 15th.
I’ll assign partners by October 22nd.
A work in process photo of your miniature is due by November 22.
Send the photo to the organizer (me) and I’ll share them to the various groups as appropriate.
Ship your miniature in time for delivery to its recipient - December 17th if you’re shipping domestically in the United States. If you’re shipping internationally then you’ll need to send your gift earlier.
When painting a miniature for your recipient please respect their requests. Some people love the idea of peppermint striped CAVs others are looking for something they can add to a serious force - keep this in mind.
If you are mailing internationally don’t send anything other than the miniature unless your recipient has approved all of the extra items. Customs can be a difficult and complicated process especially for plant matter, powder, and other seemingly innocent materials. Please list only the actual cost of the miniature as the value on the customs form and list the item as a gift.
Everyone who signs up must understand that Secret Santas can and do fail. There is no guarantee that you'll receive a model. Such is the nature of these exchanges.
If something happens and you can not meet your commitment please contact the organizer (me) as early as possible. I’ll make arrangements to take care of your recipient. There is no shame in this… life happens to all of us.

I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first
I love this figure.
Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
They have bent back a little (Sword).
I did a WIP on him. Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path. My DM said "Vikings." Kord has that vibe for sure.
I tried to paint the base like grass.
The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword. It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what. What is tail? What are legs? I did my best.
Overall, I'm pleased with him. He seems like such a bad-a$$.
As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close. Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
