  1. Wow, that was awhile back. I was hosting that clip, but not any more. Probably have it at home somewhere - I'll see if I can dig it up tonight.
  2. T minus 1 hr 45 min! Get those last-minute entries in. Good luck!

    unit missions

    I knew you were going to say that. Turns out Falcons are a little slow. Mine didn't quite make it to cover when Chrome's Mastadon crested that hill. Kabllewwyyy! Scrap metal.

    Hunt for a CAV

    I don't know of any other Emperor images out there. The only other one I could find here was the original concept sketch, which I don't believe was ever previously released.
  6. No problem. Some others here (previously dead links, I just discovered. All fixed now).
  7. A few renderings here.

    CAV drop ship?

    Try this: http://www.mil-net.net/articles/hercules.cfm
  9. Oh, if only you knew the things that I've been storyboarding in my head. Someday there will be time, someday...

    Kai Must Be Stopped!

    Yeah, what he said. Don't mess with the Steel Griffins!
  11. If nanotechnology in the CAV universe is advanced enough for field repairs, then it should be able to generate and alter a paint scheme, even in the middle of combat. The military is already looking at it.
  12. Posting this on Chrome's behalf: Brok's Armory recently announced that they are closing their online store and are liquidating their remaining inventory on eBay. Brok had 4 auctions going on, each consisting of 14 different CAV minis, plus a 5th auction for a copy of the Rulebook and both JoR's - the perfect Christmas present for any CAV newbie, if you ask me. Unfortunately, I just found out about these and the auctions end at 3:30 tomorrow afternoon (Fri, Dec 19th), so you'll have to act fast if you want to take a shot at one of these. To see the auctions, just go to eBay and do a search for "Reaper CAV". If your tastes in gaming extends to other mecha games like BattleTech and Heavy Gear, Brok has multiple auctions for those games as well. He also has tons of stuff up for VOID, Confrontation and Celtos. You can see his entire listing by going to his website and waiting for the page to redirect itself.

    Big Dictator

    Hellion's Dictator is about 5-6 inches tall, depending on how your build it. For some pictures of it next to a Dictator miniature (2 1/8" tall), go here. It would probably look small next to an Armorcast MadCat, but then CAV's are generally smaller than 'mechs anyway. The fluff says a Dictator is 29 ft tall.

    Drop 'em on a dime

    The Herc article has been updated with some Acrobat files from GhostRider and LadyStorm, including the templates, assembly instructions, and decals. Also, some links have been added to AutoCAD and plot files for the templates, submitted by KAMUT. Thanks for the contributions everybody!

    Drop 'em on a dime

    Oooh, I like that idea. Definitely adding that to the Herc2.0 list... Btw, making the Herc carry gunships is up to you, but I have to say I don't think it's very realistic, unless you completely ignore scale. Most gunships to scale would be over 4" long, so a radically modified Herc could carry maybe one section of gunships.

    Drop 'em on a dime

    Yeah, the front doors are essentially removable if you don't add a small tube to keep them in place. Friction seems to keep the doors from sliding off so far on mine.
  17. I was going to throw in my two cents, some things that I was thinking during the design, but Stuart just did it for me. I agree with all of it except the flight deck part. Remember, CAV gunships to scale would be 3-4" long. As dropships go, the Herc would be on the smaller end of the spectrum. The only thing smaller would probably be a light ship with single-section capacity. Leech, I don't have any good shots of the tail underside, but there's plenty of room there for tail turrets. Also lots of room for mounting under-wing weapons, though the lower half of the winglet and the exiting CAV's would be considerations. Pylons with Ripper/Whisper missiles would be interesting
  18. It's not that I want variants, I just thought that since the Herc is not official, there's no reason that every builder can't create stats to suit their needs. Especially since the weapons will vary widely (maybe less so if Reaper comes out with that accessory pack), and everyone has their own ideas, scenarios, etc.

    Drop 'em on a dime

    Pics and descriptions are in the instructions on Mil-Net, but I haven't made up any stats. Basically the armament consists of: - Upper fore turret - twin Maxim One GRC (Rhino) - Upper rear turret - quad Model 7 DF missile pack (Rhino) - Chin turret - twin Charvel Mk II GGC (Starhawk V) Two fixed anti-vessel GGC (BFG's)

    Drop 'em on a dime

    Sparky, the stats are up to you. I've suggested that builders post variants on Mil-Net, using consecutive letters and any nickname you want to add. So mine's the Alpha variant, the prototype. Can't wait to see the Beta, Charlie, Delta, etc. variants. :) I was hoping someone would do a .pdf. Word was all I had at my disposal.

    Drop 'em on a dime

    Need to get two full sections of CAV's in position right now? The GH Hercules dropship is up to the task. Head over to Mil-Net to start building yours today.

    Jor 2 preview

    Yep, the artwork of each model started with a rendering of the actual Rhino 3D model used to master the mini. Some models get tweaked a little as they go through the 3D printing/mastering/casting process, but for the most part what you see is what you'll get.

    As of 1640 PST, Mil-Net is back up. Haven't heard what the problem was, but here's hoping all remains good.
  25. blitz


    Yes, Mil-Net has been down all weekend. The problem is being investigated. Sorry for any inconvenience. Not sure yet how long it will be down, but we'll post here as soon as it's back up.
