Physical Size of CAVs

Recommended Posts

So while I await the arrival of my CAV II pledge, I would love to see some examples of the physical size of some of the existing CAVs.  I have seen some photos of different games in progress, but it is always difficult to tell from those shots how large or small some of the models are when standing next to each other.  It would be really cool to see a comparison shot that shows a squad of infantry, a tank, an aircraft, a small size CAV (like the Razor or Khan) and a large size CAV (like the Thunderbird, Emperor or Silverback?).

Yep, I had seen that series of photos.  Too bad it doesn't show several CAVs together for scale... They always show a single CAV (the Tiamat and then the Dictator).  What I was hoping to see was a comparison of the size of some different CAVs together.  I'm curious to see what sort of size variance there is between them.

Wow! That is a lot of CAV figures!

Here you can see the metal Dictator 60 with 28mm, 15mm, CAV infantry, and 6mm figures.

Way in the back are some other CAV figures with some ADB Star Trek miniature, Silent Death fighters, some 6mm figures, a bunch of 6mm buildings, and an N-Scale office tower.

And another shot with a variety of scales

Just a note, all the aircraft are True Scale.

Sorry, misread the OP, thought he said just CAVs.

I like your paint jobs!  Plus the work on the bases looks really good!

 

Just out of curiosity, what is the terrain you are using?  You have some neat urban roads and cardstock buildings as the backdrop.

Thanks Salem, they were fun to paint. The bases are cork and sand to look like rubble.

 

The terrain is the Dropzone Commander Ruinscape terrain set. The roads are 1 foot square panels, double sided with a variety of configurations (24 total to make a 4' x 6' table), and it comes with 20 buildings I think. I got it from Miniature Market but a lot of online stores carry it. There is a also a set called Cityscape, the roads and buildings are more pristine where Ruinscape things show a lot of wear and tear.

I have been eyeballing that exact terrain set!  What do you think of it?  Do the tiles remain stable on your game table or do you have to secure them somehow?

I like it, but to be honest I've not had a chance to use it in a game yet, just for photos. The handful of CAV games I've played so far were on wooded landscapes (felt with hills, trees, etc). I keep meaning to use the Ruinscape stuff in a game but just hasn't happened yet.

 

Having the tiles move around is a concern and I'll probably put the felt down on the table and then the tiles on the felt.

Not sure if this helps, but heres a rough shot of all of my assembled CAV's. I'm getting a new display case to fit all of the unassembled ones this weekend.
