Ritterlich Cataphract - Christmas Exchange!

Recommended Posts

Neat!  I bought a Cataphract at ReaperCon.  I don't know much about CAV, so is the Cataphract a Ritterlich unit or is it a unit any faction can use and you just did it up as Ritterlich?

Both!  The Ritterlich produce the Cataphract and arm their units with it.  If you want to play pure Ritter you'll probably have one in there.  BUT, mercs can also field the unit (they can field anything with the idea being that other factions sell their salvage, you salvage one, Ritter over produces and sells some to qualified buyers etc)  So at the end of the day, Ritter and mercs can field it.  Could a Rach unit?  Sure, but you won't get any benefits of playing pure Rach.

Fantastic! I've been wanting to learn how to paint up my mechs from CAV and this will help me learn!

This is a beautiful Stompy Robot.
I love how you managed to black line and highlight all the details while keeping a military 2-tones colour scheme

      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.

      Hi all!
      Just recently finished painting my first Ral Partha figure: a heavy-armored warrior and a pretty dragon! 

      Getting the pieces to fit together was a bit of a hassle (maybe it was a bad mould?), but after I got that sorted out I decided to go to with a classic blue dragon look.

      Look at those chompers!!!



      Used MSP Dragon Blue (29815) for the scales and wings, Sparkling Blue (09104) for the plate scales on the spine, and a mix of the Blonde Triad for the belly scales, horns, and wings.



      Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this one. Certainly earned a display place on my desk.

      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.
