Destroyed Cav's terrain (Image Heavy)

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

Newbie here I though Id share a project that I've been working on to use when we play Talon Games Combat assault vehicle (CAV) when being shown the game I wasn't sure about lying the metal figures on there side to show they are destroyed or just removing them from the table I wanted something to represent them on the table as obstacles for troops and vehicles.

 

So here it is as it stands

 

 

4_ruined cav 1

 

I took a metal unmade Cav  and positioned it on some putty added a few rocks and used the Oamaru to made a mould

 

after moulding I painted it up (not finished yet) but you get the idea

Very cool terrain pieces!

 

For wrecks that have been laying there longer you can also add more rust colours.

CAV Bones will make this a cheaper way to do this.

Given the way you're doing this, it looks like you aren't actually consigning metal minis to a permanent use as wreck markers, right? You're just embedding them in clay for the molding process? After you've made a cast of it, I would recommend doing more than just removing bits. Add some holes or other noticeable battle damage. Blasted out pilot canopies would be a good one.

Hi David yep I have added a bit of Damage bullet holes to them but maybe a bit more substantial holes need to be added ::D:

Definitely add more damage! Scorch marks especially. Anything that does enough damage to blow of arms/legs of a CAV is gonna leave more viable damage to both the CAV and the landscape.

 

Maybe toss in a few bits of broken trees or building ruins too?

Updated photos from Photobucket to flickr, I'll post some more with finished  painted figures soon will add a few things as crowley said broken bits will also do a couple really broken up... Also handy for trying out a couple of test paint schemes for new forces :poke:

Brilliant use of Instant Mold!  :D  The warping and distortion caused by Instant Mold is just fine for wreckage because ... it's WRECKED!  :D

      Well I finally got the project on the road heres my test pieces almost finished just needs the bases finished off
       
       
      Started with an archer, raptor and Ronin Cavs with 2 ashigaru's missile vechiles
       
       
      did a base coat of purple with a dry brush afterwards
       
      then added camo scheme as per my other link with tester pieces of paper
       
      finished group
       
       
      quite pleased with the result look decent from a distance on the table no unit symbols or markings will decide on these at a later date

      ############### ORIGINAL POST BELOW ########################
       
      I come to the Reaper Forums from the Privateer Press forums. In my time there I got involved with a Secret Santa (SS) exchange where a group of people got together and agreed to paint and gift a model for a randomly selected member of the SS exchange.
       
      In an effort to generate more community activity on the CAV forums I'm curious if there is any interest in a CAV-centric gift exchange? I haven't put together my thoughts on how to organize it yet but thought I'd see if their was enough interest to make it work.
       
      I like CAV, I like the Reaper forums but the CAV sub-forums seem very, very quiet.
       
      I'd honestly like to get to know more of you and what better way than to paint a mini for my CAV neighbor in the spirit of the season.

      Reading the thread below gave me the idea to organize a friendly 'KitBash' competition. Something like... everyone chooses a CAV and converts it in some meaningful way. Competition runs for a calendar month. We post a before and after image and then @CAVBOSS picks the winner(s). 
       
      Just something fun to do really...
       
      Any interest...? Now that the CAV Secret Santa is winding down I'd be happy to manage the little bit of 'admin' the contest would require.
