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

Recommended Posts

Received my pre-shipping notification yesterday.

Then a box showed up this morning...but it was Oathsworn.  So no new Big Stompy Robots for the weekend, but at least some shiny new critters.

Woohoo, received a big box of big stompy robots!

Gonna take some doing to inventory that.  I seem to have included "several" add-ons.

Dug until I found an Enforcer...very nice, some serious detail there.  And stiff enough that one gun poked through the bag without bending.

They're here!





OK, yes they're waiting for me at the local post office, but I'm home after their regular business hours, and will only get them this Friday. But at least I know they're waiting for me. :lol:

Managed to sort through mine last night. Boy did I get a lot of tanks and other vehicles.  Cool.

Only noticed one issue with my add-ons, one too many Commander I, one too few Lion I.  Sent an email.

I found the BSRs the hardest to sort, trying to find a distinct bit to identify without opening them all could be tricky.

Planes were obviously easiest as there are only 2 models.

Tanks and vehicles are easy of you sort them upside down.  I made three piles, wheels, treads or hover.  Then sorted each pile based on the bottoms, which are all quite different.


All in baggies now, waiting to join the rest in their assorted boxes.  I really need to get some more CAVs painted....

Bags and bags of... Wow, that's... that's a lot of stuff. I kept forgetting how big they're supposed to be.


Now for the inventory!

Is there a list anywhere of what all is in wave 2?

It would've been useful.


Identifying every unassembled unit in its baggie with only the KS page as reference was time consuming.


I made a spreadsheet with the name, ID code, type of unit, quantity expected, quantity received.

      Is Jamming an ECM signal an active process that must be maintained like current Electronic Warfare counter Measures or is it more like an EMP that just turns off ECM?
      In practice:
      If my Talon activates ECM to block Target-Locks, then my opponent successfully Jams my ECM with his warden, is my ECM gone until next turn or would it be back if I immediately destroy the warden that jammed my ECM on my next activation during that turn?

      About this project
      What is this thing??
      Tabletop RPGs have many bits and pieces. And there isn't a good way to hold everything in one place that is good looking, convenient, and has an active role in the gameplay, right? WRONG! 
      It's the Adventurer's Kit.
      Question: So what does it do exactly?
      Better Question: What does it NOT do?
           The Adventurer's Kit comes with a:
      Favorite dice section Space for more dice More space for dice (or anything you like to put there. Do what you want. I'm a gamer not a cop.) Place for pens and pencils Pencil sharpener  Modular miniature box (informational gif below) Phone charger Brackets for a phone or tablet Card section for spell cards or flash cards Large rolling tray Clipboard for your character sheet Brackets for the character sheet clipboard and/or book Space to transport books to your gaming location It allows for gaming in a unique location (forest, renaissance faire, etc.)   If you've ever lost dice or minis or crimped the corners of your otherwise pristine character sheet then you want to look at The Adventurer's Kit. This well organized case contains space for everything. Lets take a look at some examples of it's versatility.

      About this project
      As you know, rats are zoologically original from Sulawesi, a tropical island in Indonesia. We decided to re-design the famous rat army as a Sulawesi tribe.
      The night was cool and moist. She was moving into the forest with seasoned experience, silently, predatory, and careful to not become prey. ..  ...That same day, a few hours before and in a very far place, two armies were deployed, each in front the other, ready for the imminent fight. Among these, two powerful wizards found in war a credible pretext to face. To show everyone who were the best among them; the strongest, the best. .. read more

      Surprised this hasn't made it here yet.
      Tre is at it again, this time with an Aenglish based warband.  Sitting at 10 figures for $55.  A full-figured female mage with her male apprentice, a female thief and 7 semi modular men-at-arms.  End date is 8 days away (KS just went live yesterday), and he has several stretch goals planned.  Just about funded now.
      Sorry for no picture, my work computer doesn't like to cough up links.
