  1. I find that brushes draw up paint that far anyway. Maybe I'm just using poor quality paints/brushes...
  2. Durak - were you ever in the Citadel Journal? Me in my profile...
  3. Aah...You can spend over half of your points on Command??? I guess this is a 'heroic' style game, then?

    Tank Legions??

    Mmm, tanks... *Must not bring Imperial Guard into CAV* *oops*
  5. Include more filth. Lots of dust, mud and mould.
  6. I only like it when it's used for really exaggerated pieces. If you're looking for a dazzlingly-polished finish in a big-bravado setting, NMM looks awesome (thinking of a Tau battlesuit I saw once). On the more understated basic models, don't like it. It just doesn't work unless it's very obvious.
  7. Apparently this stuff is good diluted with water as a paint thinner, too...
  8. Apparently, Future Floor Wax, or Johnson's Klear floor wax mixed with water are both good as Citadel thinners. Experiment with the ratio. And I would have *thought* distilled water would be a better medium, as it contains very few ions. Bottled water is the opposite, it's sold for its ion content, so probably wouldn't be the best stuff to use.
  9. So I have a set of paintbrushes with a hard lacquer-type stuff on the tips to keep them from getting messed up in the pack. What is this? How should I remove it? And are there any other things I should do to prepare my brushes before painting with them?

    CAV Fluff question

    What about a wanted terrorist whom each of the various factions wish to question, currently held in custody by a mercenary band planning to auction him off to the highest bidder?
  11. Horses for courses. If you want to customise your section, blisters are your choice. If you're a beginner and you want a pre-built section with good unit choices, without faffing around choosing different blisters, boxed sets would be very useful. I'd buy them, basically. That's what I'm basing this on.
  12. Also bearing in mind that saliva, being that consistency due to its protein components, will degrade over time...
  13. Aah...didn't even know that set existed Anyway, the 'boxed set' system seems to work well enough for the Microshaft of the wargaming world...you all know who I'm talking about...
  14. Most people who know what they're doing, perhaps. I don't; so I would find it quite useful. For beginners in general, there's a lot of anxiety about buying something that'll end up being useless; if the promotion for such a product is based around it being 'accessible' and 'versatile' then it might encourage newcomers into the game with a single easy purchase. Plus it makes a good gift.
  15. Are we likely to see any boxed sets for CAV in the near future? If not, does it sound like an idea to work on? I'm thinking, instead of buying seperate blisters, package a whole CAV, tank or infantry section together with some laminated datacards, booklets, transfers and various other goodies. Base the selection in the box on player's favourite compositions, or on a particular mercenary band with a backstory. If the datacards sound like a good idea, perhaps a CAV-logo marker pen with which to write on them? You're always stuck for that sort of implement whenever you want to use something like that...
  16. It's a lot of fun when you have good kits to cannibalise i.e. from the same range, so they're the same size and style, but crossing over to different game platforms... Well, you can see how badly it turns out fairly often from a good portion of the conversions on Dakka, for example.
  17. Unfortunately not; about as far as one could get from San Diego in the English-speaking world... (UK, by the way) And I've played 40K for six years, so I'm no n00b, just think that properly-styled full kits would be better than kitbashing.
  18. Wonderful ideas I'm sure, but the point is that there is potential available for new models. I think new styles of CAV would be a good one.
  19. With my conversion skills though; that will most likely just look like I've stuck a load of model bits on a CAV...
  20. Some 'nasty' CAVs might be interesting... In any sci fi universe there's always room for some nastiness; depraved pirates turned slavers, or simply outfits consisting of psychos and religious wackos, who 'decorate' their CAVs with chains, spikes, perhaps even crucified bodies and the like...
  21. Sounds good to me; I prefer tanks to robots, and if robots are present, tanks just don't seem to fit. I'm also interested in converting CAV to accomodate Epic 40,000 miniatures. After Titan Legions and Space Marine went OOP, the Epic system became pretty much a combined arms game and everyone forgot about the Titans (CAVs...)
  22. Is it worth playing CAV without CAVs? That is, using it purely as a combined-arms game a la Epic 40,000 if you don't feel like Big Stomping Robots at the time?
