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.

      Mainly because a user asked me who made a particular miniature and I can't reload the message to answer it. These are the winter or frost versions of the adventurers in the latest Hasslefree Pin Up kickstarter. The bard (blond, cloak, staff) is called "winter erryn" by Hasslefree. 
       
      I have asked on the "bones you would like to see" thread for wintery/frostgrave style Bones figures.

      I keep a blog of painted miniatures with their model number - awhile back I had painted the werebat from Kickstarter#3 model #169.  Is that intended to be 77448 which appears to be missing in the current inventory?

      Ending in four days - Redshirts: Adventures in Absurdity
       

       
      Sometimes the greatest adventure in space is simply surviving the orders of your captain. Redshirts brings laughs to your gaming table
       
      Sounds like fun - I am in for $10 - with no real intent of ever running the beastie.
       
      A short adventure series, covering levels 1 - 3.
       
      Mission 1: The Terrible Tacos: When Captain Ginny wakes up after a weekend bender with an intense craving for tacos, she decides to send her newly arrived recruits on their first mission. Unfortunately for the recruits, the local Taco Galaxy is under deadly new management. Mission 2: The Cheaper Cleaner: Stuck in a surveillance mission around a dying star, first officer Laisse Faire decides to save a few credits and send the PCs to pick up his dry cleaning instead of paying for delivery. He's sure the quarantine around the planet won't be a problem.  Mission 3: The Pirate Bonanza: When several important pieces of the ship's engine go missing, the PCs are sent shopping at the local space pirate flea market with a budget of $0 and the Captain expecting change back. Can the PCs get the ship back in working order or will they end up swabbing the decks of a pirate ship for the rest of their days?  
      You are the away team for an incompetent captain, on a less than stellar starship.
       
      Reminds me more of the old SF classic(?) Quark than Star Trek...

      In 1980 (ish) I got my hands on the original D&D game and played with my friends. Over the years, I fell in love with all of the books, especially the Fiend Folio. That COVER! Emmanuel's painting of the Githyanki! Man it is awesome.
      Then, In high school, I used to charge a whopping 50 bucks to hand-paint denim jacket back-panels for all of the metalheads and rockers. My favorite ones to paint, of course, were Iron Maiden's album covers. Derek Riggs' amazing paintings of Eddie blew my high school kid mind.

      One day while painting a version of KILLERS by Iron Maiden, it struck me how similar it was to the old FIEND FOLIO cover. I thought that one day it would be fun to draw up a mix of the two. 

      The original painting was done on a denim jacket, which sold at an art show, just like the old days. Since then, lots of folks have asked me to put the design onto T-Shirts, so I figured this would be a good way to get them out there!
      Boom.
      SHIRT DETAILS
      Shirt Brand and Material: This is an American Apparel T-shirt. It is black, 100 percent cotton on the sleeves and back, and soft poly on the front panel, The result is a vintage feel, super soft, medium-light weight shirt that feels great and shows bright colors. It is a slim fit, 4.4 oz., side-seamed t-shirt.
      Sizes: The shirts are available in the standard "unisex" American Apparel sizes of Small through XXL.
      Printing Method: These shirts are printed using a Dye-Sublimation process. It is an amazing process that gives photographic results while keeping the fabric incredibly soft. You have probably seen this printing method used on mousepads and game-mats. I did not want such a huge print to make the shirt feel like a plastic suit of armor, so silkscreening was not considered. The shirt printer has warned me that there may be small, white spots near the very edges of the art, in the underarms or edges. However, the sample that I ordered is perfect except when really stretched out, as you can see in the photos below.

       
      TWO WEEK PROJECT
      Spread the word! If you know anyone that would be psyched for the shirt, pass along the link. The project is just a short, two week window.
      ORDERING DETAILS
      Backerkit: As with my past projects, I will be using Backerkit as a checkout system. This is a very flexible system that allows backers to order exactly what they want and lets us communicate after the project ends.
      Ordering more than one? Multiple people have asked me how to buy more than one. This option will be available as an "add on" upon checkout within the backerkit that you receive as a backer.
      Shipping Costs: We are using USPS priority shipping. 
      Returns: These shirts will be custom printed-to-order. This means that I am not creating large quantities and selling from that stock. I will be making only the shirts that have been ordered and therefore will not be able to accept returns. Thank you for understanding.
      *Please note that this project is not affiliated with Iron Maiden, TSR, Hasbro or Wizards of the Coast.
