CAV forum Secret Santa...?

Recommended Posts

After extracting the package that StrongArm McPushHarder somehow squeezed into my mailbox, I now have a lovely Tyrant.

I've always thought this model is particularly tall and menacing looking.

OH and this is what I got. As said before: I love it.
 

Forgot to include a note saying what the inspiration for the paint scheme was. Hope you don't hate the movie Elf. The similarities were too great to ignore.

I'm pretty sure my submission has long since arrived, but I can't find the tracking number, and the intended recipient hasn't been on the forum since before Christmas...

Went to box mine up Monday and o dropped it ::(: arm broke off and paint got messed up. It has been repaired and should be in the post (with lots of foam) by the end of the week.

Strangely enough, I saw him post about it on Facebook. I've asked him to post here.

@Ludo‘s package has arrived, and there were two Bones Wights as packing material (kidding!). Thanks! It’s really pretty, and I and the fam like it a lot.

 

I can’t find the name of the metal figure he painted, but I feel a little bad that he expended a metal figure on me. The preciouses! Not the preciouses! Therefore, as a salute to the material that is no more, Ludo’s valiant sacrifice, and because it popped to mind immediately, I must now try to paint the two Wights to match the figure I got to form a three figure squad. And for more interest, Ludo isn’t allowed to tell me what colors he used! Fun fun!

I'll give you a hint, they are Reaper paints. 

I've missplaced the name card or I would have included it. It's actually a model that will be available when the second Kickstarter arrives. So you should be able to ID it from those.

Well, good thing it was done in Reaper paints... cause that's what I've got.

 

Aha! The Chancellor!  Looks like I'm scheduled to get two of those from the KS.

      Seeing the nice results on different wip's using "N" scale Outland Models buildings for CAV terrain, I picked up a few kits myself....and I actually finished one! This is the train railway modern garage / logistic center. I was shooting for a fairly new concrete precast type building. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I used mostly sponge stiling to achieve the look.  Here it is with one of my best painted CAV for scale ( he is in the classic B&W T.V. Camo pattern ).



       
      Now for the problems....I was able to get a nice sky / earth effect on the window panes, but it does't even show in the photos. Next one I will probably use brighter colors for the sky and earth reflection. The decal on the roof was also a big fail. I tried a method of rubbing the ink off of a printed page as shown on the Baremetal YouTube videos. That was a failure. I used an inkjet printer and I suspect he used a laser printer which would explain the problem I ran over. I was partially successful in hiding the problem by printing out a badge from the CAV kickstarter and varnishing it to the roof. The center of the badge was cut out and I stipled blue in the cutout. Lastly my clumsy hands broke several assembly pins while assembly the building with all the paint on it...so superglue came to the rescue! 
       
      Anyways C&C is welcome.

      1) Will these 12 new paints (73400-73411) be available for normal retail sale at some point?
       
      2) They claim to be HD paints, but they have white caps. What's up with that?
       
      3) Is there any chance of being able to purchase black caps for Reaper paint bottles? I could find only white caps in the store.

      Are there still plans for a new Journal of Recognition or a similar manual?  I would love to see something like this as part of the next Kickstarter.
