Talon Games - CAV: STRIKE OPERATIONS Kickstarter II "The Battle for New Vesta"

Recommended Posts

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?

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

Will this also impact delivery of paint?

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...

      Hi all,
       
      It has been a really busy year for me, between moving across the country, starting a new job, finding a place to live, getting married, major surgery for the missus, and evacuating/rebuilding after a major hurricane.  Unfortunately, this has left little time for painting- and it’s been driving me nuts!
       
      After the wedding a few weeks back, we finally had some time to take a step back and breathe.  The wife poked me and said “why don’t you start painting again?”
       
      The first thing I picked up was this squad of half-finished Ritterlich Republic cougars I had been working on last winter before the move.  They had been painted and inked, but not assembled, highlighted or jeweled.
       
      I’ve been working on them a few hours at a time over the past few weeks, and finally had a big chunk of the day yesterday where I could sit down and power through them… here they are!  I still need to do the bases, but I couldn’t do that last night as the glue was still drying.  They will also get a matte varnish coat, but I'd like to get your C&C on a few things before then.
       
      As I have mentioned before, this is from the CAV kickstarter; one of the things I wanted to do with the kickstarter CAVs was to explore a different painting technique for each army.  For the Ritter, this was edging. 
      As time went on, I started to become a bit fatigued at the sheer amount of edging required.  This caused me to slowly rotate from display quality (for me at least) to more tabletop quality. But hey, a painted mini is always better than an unpainted one, and easing up a bit on the quality allowed me to finish them quickly.
       
      I am also trying to incorporate more blending in the canopies, as well as some OSL effects.  As you can see, I am still practicing.  I expect I will get better with time (at least I hope I do)!
      As always, C & C are very welcome.  I am trying to get better and I can’t do that without critique.  Any comments about how to improve the jeweling or OSL in particular would be most appreciated. 
       
      If anyone wants the paints or techniques used, I can provide that information too.
