Oh my, I'm going to have to make sure I have cash for the next Kickstarter, because those are some gorgeous stompy robots of doom.

Ok, I didn't get the opportunity to do my inventory this weekend as I'd hoped, but I need to clean off the gaming table for a game Tuesday and then Wednesday, so maybe Thursday and Friday I'll be able to go through the horde of BIG STOMPY ROBOTS (with soft squishy insides)

My box was waiting for me when I got into the office this morning!

 

Holy gnarflethegarthok, those Enforcers are gorgeous!

 

Any hints as to what factions the August KS is likely to focus on?

Anyone know if heat impacts the integrity of Reaper paint? It has been hot (right around 100F degrees outside) and my paint from this KS was delivered while I was out of town.

Going by the symbols on the pic used to show the new kickstarter month, I'd say Malvernus & Grand Order.

Your paint should be fine!

I have had one of the Adon Enforcer models sitting on my desk at work since I received it. I keep picking it up to look at it. 

It is, hands down, the best model of both CAV kickstarters AND in the top 10 of the Best Bones models over all in terms of detail.

 

And I'm not really a mech fan. I was in this KS for the vehicles.

Sent an email.  Never got shipping confirmation for my two paint sets :(

 

Me either.  No response to my email.  Not happy at the moment with the lack of communication.

Me either.. it's been almost a week since I sent them the help request and all I've gotten is the automated response.

As I have mentioned in the last update and responses to questions on the KS page but I will repost here...

 

"Right now we are unboxing all of the product we brought back from the Denton warehouse after initial fulfillment. I don't have anything yet to send even if I knew exactly what was wrong. I am also going through the data bases so I can try to see where the problem lies so I am working on any shortages, missing rewards, broken pieces etc. as fast as I can. So no, I'm not waiting two weeks to figure it out, but yes it will be two weeks before I get everyone sorted out. I'm sorry for the delay, especially for those that haven't received anything."

 

So if you got the automated response, then your request for help has been received and we are working through them.

 

Also here is a link to the update which had already posted earlier on this forums as well...

I would presume that means if you DIDN'T get the automated response, it may mean yours didn't go through, or the response ended up in your spam folder?

While we don't use a spam folder on that address to avoid that situation, if you DID NOT receive the automated response there is a chance your email bounced somewhere.

[Sigh] Friday evening, post office closed, still no sign of CAV in Canada.

 

Maybe next week.

Saw their booth at Little Wars yesterday. Would have played a demo game, but my friend was not feeling well and couldn't stand very long.

      Hmm, search function claims there's no hits on this forum for 'war', so I may be simply missing it, but I don't seem to see anyone mention this has relaunched:
       
      Z War One - Damnation "episodic, comic book miniature board game"
       
      Only difference as far as I can tell is more stretch goals. Might've made sense for them to try to have a third episode ready, but doesn't look like it so far.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."

      Legendary Duck! YOU be the HERO! Stretch Goals
      There is a Stretch Goal unleashed for every 1k funding goal reached and each one is a game changer: a new Duck will appear! Either a new Duck Hero or Legendary Duck will be made available for you to choose as part of your pledge.
      1k Stretch Goal Unleashed: Oduck!  
      2k Stretch Goal Unleashed: The Quack Knight!  
       
       
      Glen Fidduck is almost a must-have for me ;)

      A few nights ago I managed to get a game of CAV in with MiniAddict and is son at Texas Toy Solider in Carrollton, TX.  Because of the three player nature we were faced with, his son and I were a team with each of us taking 3k points and MiniAddict taking 6.2k or so points!  We set up long ways on the table and the only modification due to the terrain type we had was to play "true line of sight."  Our terrain wasn't leveled well as it was more 40k/Fantasy terrain so this seemed to work.  Forces were all "mercenary forces" by the rules due to composition/unit types"
       
      Templar Mercenaries:
      2x Centurion
      3x Duelist
      Spartan
       
      Spartan
      5x Javelin
       
      ADON/Terran Mercenaries:
      2x Naginatas 
      2x Wolves
      2x Poltergiests
       
      6x Chieftains
       
      Ritter Mercenaries:
      4x Lion II's
      1x Cougar
       
      Catamount (Jaguar model)
      3x Puma's (blue Cougar models)
      Thug
       
      We also decided to use individual model activation with the cards as opposed to section activation.  

       
      So Turn one was pretty much everyone rushing forward and/or moving forward and activating ECM to discourage target lock pot shots.  The Templar force was a little more cautious in it's approach than our side I think.
       

       
      Turn 2 was really more of the same, though we had our first suppression with my Catamount suppressing the Spartan that had used it's ECM.  One of the Javelins Run 'n' Gun'd and dropped four damage on my Cougar while the heavy tanks dropped a Javelin on the far left side.

       
      For all intents and purposes, the game ended on turn three.  We were positioned to be able to do a lot of damage and lucked out in the card deck draws.  We had five or six cards turn in row.  I took charge, activated the Catamount, and fired off his Active Phased Array 2, which netted all of the forward Templar elements.  Next, two Chieftains raced up to the center Spartan (he's behind the rock in the center of the board) and killed him with medium PBG's.  Next, my Thug moved over to put six damage on the far right Shootist.  The Shootist attempted defensive fire and did maybe one damage.  Everything else that shot at the Thug missed (honestly I thought I was trading the Thug to severely hurt the Duelist!). My Lion II's move up and gain line of sight to the second Duelist and kill it with one burn out (marked with a yellow 1.). Three chieftains peel left and kill the second Spartan while the other two Chieftains race over the left side Duelist and inflict some damage.  Our heavy tanks move forward and kill the brave Javelin, while wiffing on the other.  In MiniAddict's defense, his dice were about as cold as you could get.  All night.  It was painful for him and honestly for us because, in situations he should have inflicted damage or killed something (my Thug should have been dead) he'd only hit once or not at all.  The only glimmer of light was one of his Centurions putting six damage tracks on one of my Lion II's.  So there was that.  My Puma's all used their ECM 2 and we moved on to Turn 4.


       
      Turn Four was mainly advancing and cleaning up for our side.  My Catamount activated APA2 again while my Thug brought down the Duelist (though he burned out and I retreated back around the corner before his Centurion could engage again.  My Lion II's advanced forward and brought the center Centurion down to six damage tracks while follow up Chieftain hits brought it to 12 damage tracks.  On the other side, the heavy tanks damaged the lone Javelin and the Chieftains played tag with the left side Duelist slowly wearing it down, though the Duelist did manage to kill one of them and severely damage the other.  I lost a Lion II to a Centurion but my other three soldiered on.
       



       
      We called it after turn five, as the Lion II's and three Chieftains finished off both Centurions, the Duelist fell to the LBG of the Puma, and the Javelin was smoked by a Poltergeist or Wolf.  All in all MiniAddicts cold dice made this a lopsided game!  There were a lot of lessons and questions for this game and we look forward to playing again!
