Remember we're doing this to have fun and make friends. Chat, share tips, tease us with WIP photos or text - but don't give away who you're painting for.

 

CAVa Claus is watching... :)

############### 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.

Here are some simple guidelines.

 

  • Anyone who is interested should PM me with the following information:
  • Name
  • Address
  • A set of desired models from which your SS will choose 1 to paint for you
  • Paint Scheme preferences - if you don't specify you might get a 'Peppermint CAV' in the spirit of the season. :)
  • Are you willing to ship your painted model outside your native country?

We're starting this later than we really should but I think we still have time. Let's set the cutoff date for signups at Nov. 10th. At that point if we have people interested I'll assign the Secret Santas and everyone can get painting.

 

Everyone who signs up agrees to post a 'progress picture' to this thread by 12/1/2017 and then should be ready to ship by about 12/18/17 depending on how far your model has to go.

 

Everyone who signs up must understand that Secret Santas can and do fail. There is no guarantee that you'll receive a model. Such is the nature of these exchanges...

 

That said I've been known to paint extra models to make up for Secret Santas that go missing.

 

The idea is to have fun and get to know each other. I'd really like to see the CAV sub-forum become an active, fun, and friendly place to hang out.

It may be worth limiting this to ones currently in production.  If I receive a request for a Duelist, you're getting a happy pink Lawn Gnomic.  ::P:

It is up to the 'gifter' to decide what to give. If you get a list that has hard to find CAVS, a 'Big Tator', or something else moderately impossible to get feel free to paint them a stand of infantry. 

 

CAVa Claus can be unforgiving. :)

Im debating, I well and truly suck at camo, so I'm weighing possible requested schemes too.

 

Secret Santa is not about painting skill its about fellowship. You make friends with people on the forum and have a model to start a new force with.

 

Don't let skill hold you out.

      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
       
       
       
      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

      HI all I originally started a thread in the Cav section about painting my UTF (united Terrain Federation) I've had to change from photo bucket to flickr for the images will update the wrecked mech as well soon
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73358-utf-possible-paint-schemes/&tab=comments#comment-1520048
       
      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

      Wishing everyone a safe and successful 2018!

      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.
