Why did I choose this color scheme...

I know what you mean.  I figured out how to do the panel lining like I wanted.  It' just took wrecking most of the current paint job to figure out.  I'll fix it if I can, if not it gets the dip.  Plus would be that I could redo with the airbrush if I restart.  I'll try and save it first.

OK... time to add my "in progress" pic. I decided to go with a Terran Firedrake currently being used by the mercenary company Sal's Slammers. The are currently stationed on a desert world so I'm going for a Italian style desert camo pattern from WW2. This is just the wash so far.

Sent messages out to everyone who hasn't posted a WIP image.

 

Please contact me via PM and let me know how you're progressing.

 

If your WIP image is to 'revealing' then send one to me in a PM so I can put you on 'CAVa Claus' nice list.

 

:)

got most everything to where I want it (to the best of my ability that is).  I'll do some touchups, give it a coat of sealer and then it's on to trying some edge highlighting.  Any suggestions for edge highlighting red?

I absolutely love the fire Drake but didn't go to reapercon so didn't get one. What's the timeline on those becoming available?

I use either a "redder" red if my underlying color is like a burgundy, or mix bright orange and red if the underlying color is a brighter red.

Pretty much done; just requires basing and sealing!

So, this is my first CAV paint job.  Gradients and some highlight / shadow done.   Time for detail work and basing.   Also adding a piece that christine van patten is sculpting for it.   He's going to be on a frozen base, hence the ice blue shadows.

Some zenithal highlighting.

Then wet palette highlights and shading color on all the panels (exaggerated, too stark).

Then air brush from the bottom to dust the figure to blend, and airbrush the primary color from the top and front to blend the rest, then I went back with the washed out blue again from the bottom.

Lastly, white edges for the highlights, and reaper corporeal shadow for the shadows.

      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.
