So I have been meaning to ask what are the unit sizes this would represent?  Regiment?  Battalion?  Need to play this game with you and have your use just these to see how that would go for you.

The World Wildlife Fund would like to thank you for bringing Tigers off the endangered species list.

It's a little difficult to say, since the different factions use different unit breakdowns. For the Ritterlich Republich, though, 4 CAVs make 1 Schutzentroop (an Adonese Troop or an Almirithil Squad) , 4 Schutzentroops (16 CAVs) make 1 Schwadron (an Adonese Company or an Almirithil Platoon), and 4 Schwadrons (64 CAVs) make 1 Abteilung (an Adonese Battalion or an Almirithil Company). With 52 CAVs, it's probably an under-strength abteilung, with 3 schwadrons plus a befehlstroop to command them.

 

For larger sizes, 4 abteilungs (256 CAVs, or roughly 5 times as many CAVs as seen here) is  a (Ritterlich) regiment, and 4 regiments (1024 units, or around 20 times as many CAVs as seen here) is a (Ritterlich) brigade, with example units seen in the core book. For NADO, 4 battalions (256) make a regiment, seen in the core book, and 3 regiments (768) make a division, also seen in the core book. For the Almirithil, 4 companies (256) make a battalion, 3 battalions (768) make a brigade, and 2-3 brigades (1536 - 2304) make a division, against with examples seen in the core book.

 

Edit: and apparently I can't count. That's 4*11=44, not 4*13=54. So a little under 3 schwadrons, then.

I am about 2/3 done assembling. Bag B is all that’s left. I need to find my airbrush in the basement to basecoat everything.I am looking forward to my table full of CAV photo.  Loving these minis so far!

I hate you all. Although given that for all four (3 bones, 1 cav) kickstarters I've received my stuff early due to international shipping issues, I suppose it's fair for you guys to get lucky this time.

I now need to punish past me for not going in on this KS.

 

There is always retail I guess.

Future you should also be informed that there's a third CAV KS coming up later this year!

Nice!

I've only started assembling mine, and I picked up a little bit of each of the old sculpts.  So far I have assembled one each of Chancellor, Wyvern, Bishop, and Ogre; four Manticores; and two Lynx (Lynxes, Lynxi, Lynxseses?).

 

And I'm probably going to need to cut more bases.

Generally, yes.  Occasionally, depending on the design, I'll leave off the arms or shoulder weapon launchers so i can get to the torsos (Dictator is an example) and attach after painting.

Depends on the model.  For the smaller ones, yes.  For the larger ones I partially assemble.  I put the legs and bases together and the torsos and arms, then paint separately.  With Bones I'm contemplating leaving the torsos unglued to facilitate dramatic in-game positioning since they do have a tighter fit than the old metal models.

 I assemble first.  I tend to leave the torsos and arms unglued if they are snug enough so I can keep them poseable.

 

I don't think I have fingerprints at the moment from all the gluing!

I assemble as much as I can without making it impossible to reach anywhere (like the underside of a CAV torso); then I usually paint the hard-to-reach spots and finish assembly before painting the rest of the model. With Bones I feel it's more viable to paint unassembled if that's your preference as there's less risk of paint chipping during assembly compared to metal models.

      Terror Below is a game of government experiments gone wild in the Nevada desert.
       
      The game has a retro look and is very reminiscent of the movie Tremors.

      Hey there, here's some of my Almirthil CAV's from the 7th CAV Guards "Never Fail" Regiment.  With Almirthil have some "Soviet" trappings, I ran with it and used an olive-y green for my units similar to Soviet armor from the Cold War period!  All logos and the bear mural are hand painted (the squiggle lines are numbers for the faction!)

      The dread beating of wings brings a chill wind to the land.
       
      A 3D print, this design is "The Father of Frost" from The Lost Dragons, a Kickstarter project.

      Finished two more miniatures toward the end of 2018. I'm just kind of painting anything I can to work on getting better. Mechs are REALLY new to me!
       
      I wanted to paint the Nightshade to remind me of a Romulan Warbird. 
       
      The Skeleton Knight on Horse was a lot of fun mostly because it's just a series of Vallejo washes with some Reaper MSP to do final highlights.

      The Malvern's Obake is a 8 DT Attack model with dual light autocannon's and four medium guided-missile launchers.
      It is designed to add a long-range option to an Attack Squad, sitting back and throwing GMs at anyone unlucky enough to show themselves and using the ACs to dissuade any lurking infantry or aircraft from inserting themselves close by.
      It can also be used in a Fire Support Squad to give it a little close-in support. With TAG, an Advanced Targeting Comp and a Wizzo to help out with fire missions, the Obake is sure to find a home in any Malvern Force Group!
      What's your thoughts?
       
      A lot of people don't give the Autocannon much credence in CAV: SO until they come out of the wrong side of one! With the Full Auto SA, even a light AC can punch through the toughest of armor with a little luck.
       
      For example, let's say the Obake cuts loose at a Hard Armor 8 opponent at medium range (a base to hit of 7+) with both light ACs (RAV 1) on Salvo with a Target-Lock. That's a total of +3 to-hit Situation Modifiers (+1 for Salvo, ATC, and Wizzo) with a roll of "6" and "1." With Full Auto the Obake decides to re-roll the "1" and gets another "6" making it a critical success and adding an additional 1d6 roll (a "4") to add to the Combat Roll.
       
      So, now the final roll ends up being whopping "19!" That 12 more than it need to-hit, combined with the weapon's RAV of 1, making the MoS +6, resulting in 2 DTs of damage!
