CAV forum Secret Santa...?

Recommended Posts

Assembled the figure this morning for the first time fully painted and based. Really happy with it. Need to get it recorded, picture taken, then packaged and mailed.

 

The end is near!

Project Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle is away! Australia Post reckons it'll take around 5 days to arrive, so since it's a somewhat distinctive scheme that was requested, I'll hold off posting photos until mid next week.

 

Also, at the post office while buying shipping and the packing box:

 

Postal worker: "By the way, you've got me curious. What IS it?"

 

Other postal worker: "Oh, that's from Warhammer!"

 

Well, close enough.

CAV boxed and shipped to the new owner. Sort of want to send the tracking number, but that’ll ruin the surprise. Forgot to include a note in case the paint scheme wasn’t completely obvious.

Mine is done should go in the mail tomorrow. I left the base generic so he could model all of his force to look the same.

 

Hope 'D' likes it. I'm pretty sure he knows whose model it is. Looking forward to seeing the other models you paint to go in this force.

I've had to drop down a step from even my wife's normal less-than-stellar camera phone to a much older model, so the miniature looks better than what is being shown here.  At least, I hope to hell it does.  I've also done some touch up that the photo helped me see better.  

It goes in the mail tomorrow, and I hope it serve the new pilot well.

Thanks to my Totally-No-Longer-Secret-Santa Savage Coyote, and to jsalyers for organising this! Looking forward to seeing everyone else's as they come in!

      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

      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.
