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!

Wait ... cookie camo?

 

I don't know whether to laugh or feel bad now.

What with it being almost Christmas Day over in the US (and it now being here in Australia), I'm putting up some shots I took prior to posting Project Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle behind a spoiler. You can imagine the opening of the spoiler as being like unwrapping the present.

Opened my gift during Christmas: one very pink Dictator!  Thanks @jsalyers!

 

the fun part will be trying to replicate the scheme for the rest of the squad!

 

I'll be using this fig as part of my Rach force.  I asked for pink because I figure, as aliens, Rach sensibilities as to what cool colors may be different than humans.  Plus it's fun to make people say they were beat by the pick BSRs.

Glad you got it!  The hat should just pop off if you don't want it on.   It is painted underneath.  I wanted to make sure that was an option. My tremmors  really struggle with the hard lines on CAV's.  I  certainly won't be offended if you touch it up, some parts need it by someone who is physically capable of holding their hand still.

Certainly laugh, I love the tanks and the scheme. Well done!

This is a list of people whose SS gift was shipped but I can't find any confirmation that they received it.

If your name is on this list please post in the thread and let us know if you've received your SS gift and how fantastic it is! :)

I have fixed my sealing mishap!  Can't tell it was a problem.  All hail Reaper Brush on Sealer!

 

Not sure if I will be home in time to make it to the post office today, but I will definitely have it in the mail by tomorrow.

      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

      HI all I originally started a thread in the Cav section about painting my UTF (united Terrain Federation) I've had to change from photo bucket to flickr for the images will update the wrecked mech as well soon

      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.
