Cav Adon painted force (pic heavy)

Recommended Posts

Greetings all as the summers now over I'm going to be painting again so I'm going to be painting an Adon Cav force theme that I've decided will be a jungle style Camo. I'll add to this thread as I did with the UTF force that I did earlier in the year http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78751-cav-utf-painted-force-pic-heavy/&tab=comments#comment-1678472

 

so heres the 1st test batch that I'll be sorting A Mantis, Kestrel, Bishop & Ogre Cavs with some ground support from Some Chieftains, Commander I & Centipede ground vechiles.

Look forward to seeing this :winkthumbs: just don't expect to see a Savage Coyote level of painting mine are always quick & dirty ::o::poke:

 

Just a quick update I've decided just to do the Kestrel and Chieftains 1st to see how to quickly get the scheme sorted and the quickest way to progress with it. Next is the strips which will be a yellow colour just deciding best way to do them paint straight yellow or will probably paint a light grey 1st then yellow over the top.

 

base Green colour added

Not a lot of progress on the Cavs :down:

 

But the Wood elves are ready for shading & final details to do the eyes or not that is the question ...

Evening all,

 

Just waiting for the shading to dry on my BB figures so I cracked on and did some quick painting on the Adon army, I'm looking at a zig-zag / crazy lines on these, tried using sand as the 1st colour before putting the mustard colour on top hopefully keep the mustard colour a bit stronger next I'll pick out the strips with a dark green line

Look a little messy at the moment but the dark lines and details that I'll pick out such as the cockpit should hopefully save them as you can see I paint quick & dirty ::D:

 

Raided my bits box and came up with some re-roll and turn/scoring markers for my Undead team

I have a large collection of BB figures that haven't been touched for years and painting these has given me the urge to paint all my teams up again might start another thread with those in it

 

Catch you all laters

Right Some forward momentum with the painting, BB figures pretty much finished bar the bases & Numbers so heres my progress on the Adon vehicles :

 

Added the darker strips tanks look ok Cav :unsure: but we'll how they look when finished

So getting there once shaded will be interested to see how they look after all these are test pieces for the rest of the anon force I'm also starting a new thread for the Bloodbowl figures

I love the BB figs! Took 2nd place in our league last round with my Female Chaos Dwarf Team, Pandora's Manic Sisters, was great watching a bunch of Lavendar clad loonies whoop bigger teams!

Back on this subject, I have learned over many years of painting minis, when I'm going to use yellow, I prime with white, then do the yellow and everything else. It really makes it easier and the yellow "pops" better.

thanks, yep these are tester pieces i suppose I could reverse the strips by painting yellow 1st with the green bits being added but might be a bit fiddly compared to the current way will tinker to see the best result for minimal effort as I've got 30+ of these to paint in all

Yeah, when you are painting that many figs, every shortcut helps.

Yep i've got 40 cavs and 32 vehicles & 4 aircraft to do for this force...::o: must be mad ::D:

 

Right got some progress on these done the shading still quite happy with the tanks but still unsure about it on cavs will have to do a couple more test pieces, also cut the flying base down for one of the graves tanks as i think they look a little high atm you can se the two heights in the pictures

      Haven't post anything here for so long...
       
      I'm not really following any color scheme here, since I am not familiar with the lore of CAV at all (I'm more interested in the game).
       
      Also I wish I learnt a bit more about painting technique for glowing effect before painting the windows...

      Attached are photos of a slew of different miniatures and projects I've been working on in 2019. 
       
      The Battleguard Golem is clearly a Warforged Paladin in my mind as was painted accordingly; he's mounted onto a Frontline Games base. The Jungle Titan is on the base of a Reaper Dragon I gave my son as a toy previously. The Galladoria Games entrances are both attached to Frontline Games Stones Dungeon tiles. The Terratiles are from a Kickstarter that started fulfilling last month; they were a ReaperCon vendor in 2017 and make good stuff! On the CAV Thunderbird and Raptor, I wanted to simulate some lights; not as much love for the Kahn.  The Thunderbird was missing a shoulder mount so I subbed in a axehead from a long-age discarded figure. The Iron Golem has inspired a monster in my DND world called a Forgeblast Iron Golem and I wanted to simulate discoloration of the iron as though it is being superheated from within; I also wanted it to look as though heat was trying to escape from a few plate patches. Khai the Huntress from Bombshell is on a metal Reaper skulls base; I painted three of the skulls with a glowing green eye to add more interest.   
      Like everyone else, just trying to be creative, get better and have fun.

      Hello, this is my first post on the reaper forums.
      I wanted to share my most recently painted miniature, the Ogre Guard sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      The base is made out of a 74036: 2" Round Base, some apoxie sculpt for the rocks, green flocking and some army painter grass tufts.
       
      I picked this figure because while he is intimidating, he hasn't started attacking yet.
      This monster fits the look of both wild beast or gentle giant.

      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!) 
       
      Concussion CAV (Fire Support)
       



       
      Bear(s) CAV (fire support)
       


       
      Growler CAV (recon)
       


       
      Rhino CAV (Ritterlich CAV sent to the Almirthil on a "Lend Lease" Policy)
       


       
      Tiamet CAV (Fire Support)  (Ritterlich CAV sent to the Almirthil on a "Lend Lease" Policy)
