Hello everyone,

This is my first post in this sub forum, please let me know if I made a mistake. I am posting this here rather than the Show off, because the base isn't finished, but until I decide what to paint it as, it IS done.

I painted 24563, RMI Sultan. The paint scheme is for the Anubis Guards Scorpion Regiment. I am sorry for the quality of the picture. This was taken with my phone. I think the wife hid the camera, so I wouldn't junk it up with my hobby.

 

I hope this works.

Cool color scheme! Do you have possibities for basing? Perhaps a desert look with the Egyptian theme? Or something with them "in the field"?

I for to say Thank you Jabberwocky. Thank you very much for the kind words. I don't paint as well as most of everyone else here on the forums, but I am happy with it.

How much work are you looking to put in? I think the desert would be easiest and would help the model stand out a bit, with it being to dark overall to begin with. The urban base could have some fun possibilities with regards to rubble and such, but would be relatively dark (I would think) with the asphalt/concrete. The grassland is kind of middle ground in my mind. Not quite as much contrast as the desert, but more than the asphalt jungle. You could throw in a few rocks for visual interest as small boulders. I would be leery of using something like static grass due to scaling issues, unless you were wanting to portray some really tall grass :)

Jabberwocky, I had pretty much the same thoughts. I am heavily leaning towards the desert base. 1 it will be eazy and 2 to further the Egpytian theme I have going on.

Okay so I've been digging around for an alternative for pewter bases. MDF seems the most economical solution, BUT, I think I'm going to wait until I get in my prototypes and use those.

No worries, boss. I got them laid out at home right now. I plan on working on some of them over the weekend.

      Brief word of introduction. I know next to nil about CAV. My current interest in it is solely from a painting perspective. With that in mind, please excuse any blunders I make.
       
      So, I'm a painter looking for some cool stuff to paint. I see CAV's mechs. I think "I like mechs, those look cool, I think I'll grab some". Then my eyes flicker upwards towards where it says "10mm scale". I think you can see where this is going.
       
      Long story short, how big are these? It looks like they come on 1" hexes, and $4.99-$6.99 is quite a lot to charge for a small mini (in my opinion, of course).
       
      Many thanks, all!

      I had painted a flail as a test model, and then decided to do a group since it was an easy color scheme.
      had too many tags, but it's a pillager, wolverine, flail, outlaw, and poltergeist

      So I finally fell into the temptation and got my first ground based sci fi minis!(I do have spaceships.) 
      A Cataphract, conquerer , and a halberd by Reaper minis came in with my horsman today! Sadly the halberd is missing a piece so it may in end up being returned. 
      So my first order of business was a small conversion to the cataphract
      Before conversion

      And the conquerer has donated the necessary parts for said conversion, specifically his smaller missile pods.

      A bit of work with an exacto knife removed said weapons.

      And a bit more exacto work to make a spot for the pods on the Cataphract.

      Some super glue to assemble the cataphract and voila! It is time for paint!

       
      And don’t worry about the Conquerer, I have a conversion in mind for it too. It just might not be a true mech when I’m done.......

       
      More sci-fi stuff to come soon I hope!
      And maybe just maybe I’ll try to make a backstory for these guys.
      Thankyou for looking!

      Hey look, yet another Jasper topic.....
       
      But this one is different (I hope).  I actually have a time frame in mind, to get this finished before the end of 2020, and submitted for the annual diorama contest.
       
      I love dioramas, and I've been pretty happy with the few I've made. BUT I always put off getting started and then end up rushing over Christmas to get everything done.
      So this year I'm starting in January (if just barely) so that I will hopefully get some stuff done before December.
       
      I've had the idea for this diorama since the very first moment I saw my first "sneak preview" of Khanjira (that would have been approximately Fri, Oct 25, 2013, 7:57 PM ADT, according to when I got the email from Kickstarter).
      My first though was something like "What a beast! Imagine if he was fighting something from a smaller scale, like CAV...."
      So that has been bouncing around in my head ever since.  
      Then I was messaging with @Pochi a few weeks ago about the contests and got talking about dioramas, and I mentioned this idea, and she said I HAD to do it.....so here we are. 
       
      Basic concept is the classic Kaiju attacking a future city harbour. CAVs (any or all of tanks, vehicles, mechs, infantry, maybe even aircraft) defending. (I briefly considered going even smaller scale as I have quite a bit of 6mm stuff too, but CAVs are easier to work with,  I have about a billion of them, and they are awesome).
       
      Today was a beginning.  I grabbed some stuff and laid it out just to get an idea of a size I'm going to want.

      Obviously I just grabbed what was handy to get some scale. Khanjira is represented by my 7 days Khanjira (handy, that ). I plan to try to get him a little more upright, since he won't be on his base and at least his front foot will be "under water". With his pose (which I don't think I have the skill or know how to adjust too much) I'm thinking maybe an elevated highway that he has just crushed to be what his right leg is on.  That or a boat of some sort....we'll see.
      The box is just a reference for the land, glasses are just some buildings.  I'm picturing something similar to the Halifax waterfront with boardwalks or something and docks/jetties (the grey upside down drawer represents) and then big buildings. Army will be in place along the waterfront, so some barricades and stuff. Possibly a trench of energy blasted ruin from the "breath weapon" if I think I can pull that off.  Again, we'll see.
      So just from the mock up, this is going to be fairly massive...like approaching 2 foot kind of dimensions 
      Not something I would do if I was following advice on building award winning dioramas, but then that's not what I'm focusing on.  I just want to make the image in my mind a reality, and I'm using the contest deadline to hopefully focus me.
      I'm also going to have to learn to do a bunch of new stuff for this, which should be fun!
       
      Step one will be to dig out my other Khanjira and start cleaning up up.  And decide on what I'm going to use for a base for this thing.....
