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.

      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.
