So I've thought a lot about this, and it's shaping my ideas of what base colors I want on a battlemat for the table.  I've seen a lot of earth-green layouts, but I've been painting my hills a more neutral slate-grey with brown and red overtones. 

 

What are other people doing for terrain colors besides the standard earth tones?

 

-- I MUCH prefer a non-green game board as they are just so prevalent in our hobby. I've done just about every color combo their is at one time or another over the years.

 

Example of a more recent one...

Here is my "Big Dogs" Terran camo scheme.  The colors remain the same, but the different roles have a different camo layout scheme (i.e., Attack, Recon, Fire Support, etc...).  This guy was painted several years ago.  I am now experimenting with my new air brush to speed everything up. I don't really do much highlighting on my CAVs as they are for play not show.

Here are some of my Ritterlich from the past CAVCon.  5th Dornheim Brigade, "Marienburg Lancers" though I feel the color is "off" for most of the photos as the scheme is a light blue with black and red accents (though the black always occurs on the arms/shoulders and shins)

Harpy. It was one of the old models with scale issues that I believe were discontinued with CAV:SO.

The Harpy is still in game and hopefully we can get it back out in the correct scale with the current line. Its a Terran aircraft I believe.

You make me very happy.  It is one of my favorite aircraft of the game.

I think we'll have to plan on some sort of meet up for us CAV players next Reapercon.  I know I plan on being there and playing some more CAV, including the tournament if there's going to be one.  Which I think is a safe assumption.

      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

      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73358-utf-possible-paint-schemes/&tab=comments#comment-1520048
       
      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

      ############### ORIGINAL POST BELOW ########################
       
      I come to the Reaper Forums from the Privateer Press forums. In my time there I got involved with a Secret Santa (SS) exchange where a group of people got together and agreed to paint and gift a model for a randomly selected member of the SS exchange.
       
      In an effort to generate more community activity on the CAV forums I'm curious if there is any interest in a CAV-centric gift exchange? I haven't put together my thoughts on how to organize it yet but thought I'd see if their was enough interest to make it work.
       
      I like CAV, I like the Reaper forums but the CAV sub-forums seem very, very quiet.
       
      I'd honestly like to get to know more of you and what better way than to paint a mini for my CAV neighbor in the spirit of the season.

      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.
