I'm wondering if the Basic Training Set is what I just received in the post office. I wasn't expecting anything, but I got a notification by email two days ago, and won't be able to pick it up until next Wednesday. I really wasn't expecting it.

 

I was able to track down that it was sent from Denton TX (i.e. Reaper HQ), but I haven't ordered anything from Reaper in over two months. Neither do I have outstanding orders anywhere else, so if it's not the Basic Set, then I'm utterly confused about what else it's could be.

Someone buying you Reaper gifts?

New minis are looking mighty fine.  I really like the Javelin and the Dragonfly.

It's confirmed, my basic training set arrived!  ::): 

 

The rule book, 8 units, two paints, bunch of dice, initiative cards and two sheets of unit stats.

 

I never realized how dark the Bones CAV minis were. The ones I saw during Reapercon were nowhere as dark.

There are still a few white ones floating around that I use for demos and paint and takes so you "might" of seen those at ReaperCon last year. The gray that you received is the color the production ones are in.

Oops, looks like the campaign officially got hit with delays.

Basic Training Set Fulfillment

At this point the folks who had pledged for this package and had locked their order in the Pledge Manager by the original date (or the extension) have had their set shipped by us. With that being said, orders in the Australia/New Zealand areas have not been delivered to their final address. We are working on the situation and hope to have the issue resolved as quickly as possible.

Final KS Fulfillment

Earlier this week I received word from our overseas manufacturer that they were going to be unable to complete their end of the project as expected. I didn’t receive any exact reason as to why, but my feeling is as they have run late with other projects they are also working on ours got pushed back in their schedule. I have been trying all week to get an updated completion date on their part and so far have not made much progress.

Obviously this is not what anyone wanted to hear but my feeling is it won’t be a huge delay. I do intend to come up with something “extra” to add to everyone’s pledge and will let you know once I decide what that will be as we get a better shipping date.

For those that may be more critical of this news, I want to let everyone know that this came as a surprise to us as well. We “punched” all the “buttons” as needed to keep this project on schedule from our side with the things we could control. You have my sincerest apology and your patience will be much appreciated.

I will update our backers as soon as possible with any additional information I receive.

Best

Not exactly surprising or worrying.  

 

It will be interesting to find out how much CAVBoss can find out and how quickly.

Will this also impact delivery of paint?

@ David It is my intention to get the paint only pledges done still in May. Once I have a schedule update from Reaper on where they are at on that I will be able to give you a better answer.

Well, that's disappointing but it gives me more time to paint the other 20 CAV I already have.

I am excited to get my new paint colors! I just need to figure out how to store it. I have three of the clear acrylic nail polish racks, but they are full with MSP, MSPHD, and MSP Limited Editions. Not sure I can justify the wall space of a third...

      So did anyone else see the preview of a Base Boss Kickstarter by Reaper Miniatures on the homepage? It redirected to a ReaperCon page but it was blank. The preview had an American flag and Bald Eagle for a background.
       
      I didn't get a chance to screenshot it as I was trying to find out where it was going and when I went back to it, it was gone.
       
      Any info on this or did someone accidentally hit enter on a preview they shouldn't have?
       
      ETA: Here is the link that it directed to, ETA 1.2 corrected link per ReaperBryan's post below. http://www.reapermini.com/baseboss
       
       
      EDIT TO ADD:
      Project is live!

      Greetings All!
      Since the release of the new rule-set last year I know I have talked a bit here and there about COG and getting support to those people wishing to run demos and such. The main reason I havent advanced any farther on it is Ive been trying to put a program together that will get the job done and allow players to feel their efforts are appreciated and awarded correctly. Ive looked at other programs out there and haven't seen what I think is required.
       
      So I'm asking for your input. What would make you want to be part of this type of program and get out there to support the game at conventions and your local stores. What do you need from me to be successful and remain engaged over time?
       
      Any input would be much appreciated!

      Greeting all! We are starting the roll-out of the updated & new content we have been promising. I have updated the links above and on the web page but I am including them here as well...
       
      First off. the new errata. The majority of it is clarifications and FAQs, but we have made a couple of rule adjustments as a result of feedback from players.
       
      CAV: SO Errata
       
      With that and the addition of new models from the last KS we have updated the CAV:SO Construction & Force Manager Program. We have added a new tab in the CP that shows a picture of the actual model to help people identify what something is. We will be updating the images later to get a more consistent look but this should work for now.
       
      CAV:SO Construction Program and Force Manager
       
      We have also updated the Master PDF of all the models so that you can have them in one place to view as a whole. Included are models that we are no longer using but have included a data card for those people who still want to use them. These have the (2) as part of their name.
       
      Data Cards
       
      We also have a new Faction Model List that is now current with all of the designs currently in the game.
       
      Faction Model List
       
      I am still getting the color data cards and the new Flashpoint ready so stay tuned as we get those out as well! Enjoy!

      Hi all,
       
      So... I have a short attention span.  This is evidenced by me deciding to take up yet another side project- this time in anticipation of finally receiving my starter rulebook for CAV:SO from reaper this week.  
       
      Reaper's CAV line is the only line of minis that are not fantasy (or 40k), and the only line of minis that I have that are not in the 25-28mm range.  As such, I don't have much good terrain for them yet.  
       
      I have been a fan of paper terrain for awhile, ever since discovering world works games and Dave Graffam's stuff.  Upon starting to look around I also found a surprising variety of free paper building templates for a variety of scales- most of which are based in Europe.
       
      So I downloaded a few of those, and then also purchased this pdf from Dave Graffam, which allows me to make office buildings of several sizes and colors that fold flat when not in use, allowing me to store an entire city in a tiny box.  Pretty awesome, especially for 3 bucks.
       
      I also found some shipping container templates. Check it out!
       

       
      I made almost 20 buildings in two evenings:

       
      An action shot:

       
      The terrans get ambushed!

       
      View from above:

       
      And folded (mostly) flat for storage (the folded buildings are on bottom):
