CAV forum Secret Santa...?

Recommended Posts

Just realized that when I signed up for this, I gave my office address, so I probably won't get my hands on mine until I get back from the holidays. If you ended up with me, don't get worried if I don't post about it until then, and hey, now I have something to look forward to when I go back to work! :)

Unless @jsalyers can contact the sender in time. Might not be headed your way yet. Might send him a PM as well.

Work Complete! It is in the post!  The line work is pretty rough.  My tremors have  been at an all time bad the last few months, I'm sorry in advance.   You may want to touch them up a bit. But I'm happy with the gradients & blending, which was more challenging on a mech than a regular figure.   The hat was sculpted by my wife, (Christine Van Patten)  Overall, I'm quite happy with it.

Eh, I'm fine. Like I said, it'll give me something to look forward to when I get back to work.

I had a package waiting on me yesterday when I got home.  MasterGunz's work is even better in person than I would have thought from the photos.  Thanks all for the fun, and thanks MasterGunz for the new showpiece of my collection.  

Tracking on mine shows a Fri. delivery.

Here is the latest addition to the 333rd Adon armored reserves. This militia unit is equipped with a just enough castoff and captured equipment to maintain their status as a 'fighting unit'. 

 

Intercepted Terran intelligence describes the unit as 'uncommonly good' and 'the Keeblers' despite the 333rds lack of actual combat experience.

 

Thanks to Jeneki for the most excellent tanks!

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!

 

Sweet!  Glad it arrived in time!  It's always hit or miss shipping over the Pacific! :D

@Savage Coyote 

 

I really love the weathering on your model. There are plenty of places on the internet to see how to weather larger scale models but few that show how to do it on smaller models. Perhaps we could encourage you to write a little something up about how to do it...?

I updated the status of the first post to show whose models have shipped / been received.

 

Please post when you've received your model even if you choose not to open it until Christmas. It helps us track who has received their gift and who we might need to supply a replacement painter for.

 

Please include a photo or two and some idea of how you plan to use the model. The SS exchange is really about camaraderie and fellowship both of which require communication.

Against all odds, the mail truck came today with a package for me! I open it and lo and behold inside is a Starhawk! Thanks @hjorhrafn! It's a significant departure from the color schemes I usually do, so I look forward to using it as a study to incorporate more greens and tans into my future work.

 

Merry Christmas all!

      Had some questions come up over on FB so I thought I would post the answers here for everyone to see...
       
      1. So any CAV can use the "target Lock" action not needing LOS.  This would be required to fire Guided missiles.  A target lock only gives a +1 or +2 to hit if they have the Advanced targeting computer 1 or 2 respectively or does the target lock give a +1 and then the target lock computer (1) would be a net total of +2 to hit?  2.  If a CAV has the SA: TAG it can use its target lock action and paint a target.  Is that target painted for ALL CAVS in my force (IE back line fire support), just for that CAVS squad, or just for that CAV?  Does it need the SA: EST to share the TAG target lock?
       
      Los is NOT required to use the Target-Lock Action. The Target-Lock Action or TAG is a requirement to use GMs (which would require LoS to shoot them). An Adv Targeting Computer is NOT required to use the Target-Lock Action (as every non-infantry model has at least a Basic Targeting Computer. The Adv Targeting Computer allows for the addition of a (+) situation modifier equal to it's rating level (the Target-Lock action does NOT add anything) to a direct-fire combat action or an indirect-fire strike point roll.
      TAG can also be used to fire GMs and can be activated by the use of a Special Action or as part of a Combat Action (LoS required). As long as the TAG is valid (the targeted-model does not move out of LoS or the model using TAG is destroyed), ANY friendly model in the Force Group can benefit from its use. EST is NOT required as TAG is a physical element that is used by the ammo of the weapon system being used.
       
      3.  If i take Smoke shells as an upgrade for a CAVS gun can I target open ground with them to make a smoke wall?  If I target open ground do I just place the smoke markers where I want or is there an attack roll I need to make?
       
      Only artillery can use the Smoke Shell upgrade, but yes you are always targeting a point on the ground with an indirect-fire weapon system.  You are still required to make a strike-point roll for the targeted location with a failed roll resulting in scatter.
       
      4.  Do doctrines apply to Tanks and Aircraft?  I thought i read something online that said if you take 4 CAVS and 2 tanks in an attack squad that that one squad could not take a doctrine.
       
      Yes, factions do not mix model types (other than in a Special Squad). So the only way you would have an attack squad with this mix would be a non-faction based force group (such as mercenaries) which cannot use doctrines.
      NOTE: This applies to a "true" faction force only to make it valid for the sake of faction doctrines. You could build an all-Templar force and mix and match model types and still call it a Templar Force Group, it just isn't eligible for faction doctrine bonuses.

      Greetings all as the summers now over I'm going to be painting again so I'm going to be painting an Adon Cav force theme that I've decided will be a jungle style Camo. I'll add to this thread as I did with the UTF force that I did earlier in the year http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78751-cav-utf-painted-force-pic-heavy/&tab=comments#comment-1678472
       
      so heres the 1st test batch that I'll be sorting A Mantis, Kestrel, Bishop & Ogre Cavs with some ground support from Some Chieftains, Commander I & Centipede ground vechiles.
       



       
      Thanks for looking hopeful to  be updating soon (just got to paint 2 blood bowl teams up 1st for friends)

      Thought I'd post my recently completed pair of Commander II Anti-Grav tanks painted up in the ADON Regiment 45 "Bone Collectors" scheme!
