Group completed as much as possible due to the lack of MercNet decals.  I cannot get a reply from the company, hope they are still in business.  One last Platoon/Lance of the Almond color. Next a break from combat units to base support; Fire, Service, and SecurityDSCI0004.thumb.JPG.dfc33b69be1dde9aa0df304666192cb6.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.f237b79875aebcbedb0be626fbdaf294.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.f00d83b7ca526dbaf2089029995caa55.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.86707bd03d8ada46d0feb09e98d553c2.JPGDSCI0009.thumb.JPG.20ea0274545d75c517633b17537c527e.JPGDSCI0011.thumb.JPG.517c734440c3c6d56943802fb3a75e18.JPGDSCI0010.thumb.JPG.9fedd766c0f11cd3fdbfeeaf4a6da7ea.JPGDSCI0012.thumb.JPG.54d3763704866bf2da41f0f7975cd087.JPGDSCI0013.thumb.JPG.15ef59a1313779558ae343453882865e.JPGDSCI0014.thumb.JPG.0af5d93c4ba8ab88a477de3751366388.JPGDSCI0015.thumb.JPG.03ad5895a9e3488dd4f292b3020fb654.JPGDSCI0016.thumb.JPG.91d3c5369c0039e76cea8c61f9cc6c21.JPG

For a slight deviation I am considering creating an OpFor (Opposing Forces) unit from the Crimson unit, the Steel/Yellow/Red unit and a few unplaced CAVs. It will be an unidentified unit to use if Black Cutlass wants to try out some of my formations against an opponent. post-9266-0-10115300-1411082000.jpg.3f177033ea17a16f26c357db23765e1a.jpgpost-9266-0-10431400-1411081680.thumb.jpg.d6951b5f49c9997c5e737ddec83494c9.jpgDSCI0002.JPG.e9142d2c8d4e8f9c3f0f3d3ecb5d7614.thumb.JPG.d4bb52415ab19581a48c51e6df0abc7f.JPGDSCI0003.JPG.89b0b293e60048d3ae9fac1fe82aba13.thumb.JPG.b10e008aca89eb9075549b0b4169749d.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.755d929ac60e7babaed87664b79d8fa7.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.9d95f3e340a2086650f9bc55529df76d.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.f03ccbf5179a578f2fee39a36d6edc1c.JPG

A slight deviation.  This Gothic RADAR tower has been sitting around for over two years, so for a slight break in painting...DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.30cd2da6880171ad5f9f1ecfdf7670a4.JPGDSCI0002.thumb.JPG.ca300e6656722d2ddbc151bd53a5cc6b.JPG It is not complete as per instructions.  Braces around the base were left off, the RADAR base windows were not punched out to obscure the interior as much as possible, as well as blocking the side openings.DSCI0004.thumb.JPG.cc88faf3821b87d84ab5a1f8d5577838.JPG  Seeing an empty interior under the RADAR just does not look right considering all the equipment and wiring present for the antenna drive mechanism, electronics and wiring.  I am experimenting with making the side panels look like fold open doors.DSCI0003.thumb.JPG.735a0afe962e5a2ffa11417721794bef.JPG  the vertical center strip is set in place to see how it would look.  Whatever, the end result will be individual pieces which will look more realistic rather my drawn in lines.

So this is the last of the Support Equipment... I think.  These are Maxim Hover Tanks from Battle Tech with missing turrets. I purchased the four dishes from Noble Knight Games and cut pieces from a metal hanger for the mounting shafts that fit perfectly. So I have mobile Sat Comm equipment.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.6e2f26c75b54841edc6741ffcef0010f.JPGDSCI0002.thumb.JPG.91f02d4488360a82981034fa0a622b82.JPG

And now back to my regularly scheduled painting plan.

This Missile Section is from the 7th. Company, 3rd. Battalion, 11th. Armored Cavalry Regiment.  They do not photograph well with the, almost black, green color.  They are not decal-ed as yet so they can be used with any Army.DSCI0004.thumb.JPG.3853da0df3d88a443d1d071a83b23625.JPGDSCI0005.thumb.JPG.c3c620fc1f747907304041e8c779d95a.JPG

Another completed company.  The upper two rows were the work of others.DSCI0002.thumb.JPG.bf24f5bba546a6ff7501285b2c6c3aae.JPG  The next two rows are the ones I currently finished.DSCI0003.thumb.JPG.959c4b1d7bba0d9faed4a605c600217c.JPG The Spike AFV goes with the Missile unit.DSCI0001.thumb.JPG.77ff6471f2f511443f1f8bcd6a37c397.JPG  The Fire Drake is missing legs so I am thinking of making it a static Base Defense unit, just not sure in what manner to accomplish that.

Here is the next group finished painting with decals, just have not determined what to put on the bases.DSCI0002.thumb.JPG.b3cab30fd1d4bad38ef7c14713321485.JPG  This is a Company from the 11th.

This completes the 1st. Company,

DSCI0002.thumb.JPG.b21643581da23b392f08826e83371c57.JPG

of the 11th. A.C.R., along with the previous 7th. Company.  Any base work will be done some other time, I want to concentrate solely on getting them painted.  This unit was mostly done by others.  When I purchased them they fit the theme of a decimated unit reforming from whom so ever.  Also I liked the color combinations and I just could not destroy the artistic workmanship exhibited.  My three are the Forest Green.

I continue plug away getting these finished, after all these years.  The Forest Green are my work, the rest were completed by Spaztica, except the black Armor.  So far, other than a few of Merc Net's armor,  just C.A.V.s are being Decaled at this time.  Two companies of Armor, one company of C.A.V., and two Armor belonging to the HQ unit.DSCI0005.thumb.JPG.e798f06fe1774123f8d0f3af3a5628a3.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.7a34bbc1dc56162e6a6ca90f70f697d8.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.9024615c6b9d840f6e3def34a32a1710.JPGDSCI0009.thumb.JPG.a6e8a5113bbff4a997b6aebee641b532.JPGDSCI0010.thumb.JPG.31f637b7d0b897dfa91ff8b7e8325436.JPGDSCI0011.thumb.JPG.4ebdc27177b608790ecbef0ed7352f7e.JPGDSCI0012.thumb.JPG.a6ad184c7423db1bfe823e5012bf6dff.JPGDSCI0013.thumb.JPG.0b7bbd41cbf55bffe5e3f63344cdf8d5.JPGDSCI0014.thumb.JPG.2a7720fb2da5e13e37c784470b0e9617.JPGDSCI0015.thumb.JPG.ca383af9e26d50444dd083e4ecfc0e3f.JPGDSCI0016.thumb.JPG.3e851ffd6cca86629fccec37c9f4e069.JPG

Well, finally closing in on the completion of getting all my CAV painted.  All that is left to do is some bases to dress up and a lot of Decal work... as soon as I acquire more of them.  So here are the last two units to be painted.  DSCI0016.thumb.JPG.a77e602e6cbff3cc06f899db702f03c4.JPGDSCI0017.thumb.JPG.34544e7904558542426f49b1a4da1fe4.JPGDSCI0018.thumb.JPG.348d65dd7b7b2ce87115bbc657c3f2bf.JPGDSCI0019.thumb.JPG.eafc48bc6fdb1f1649409b52727dad11.JPGDSCI0020.thumb.JPG.782739f791dd92367b0aef596a7d1282.JPGDSCI0021.thumb.JPG.c065b95e48310594198a957d7d6014c1.JPGDSCI0022.thumb.JPG.b082fd63a234a8d501282811d7583506.JPGDSCI0023.thumb.JPG.74acf7ee834455fae6feac3b128f8b62.JPGDSCI0024.thumb.JPG.a48e98a88098fc8d83fbff5c4df22667.JPGDSCI0001.thumb.JPG.d9d3195fcc3104720882b65386321524.JPGDSCI0002.thumb.JPG.b0bc8096af966df6e6b05b144bc1e8bd.JPGDSCI0004.thumb.JPG.93ebd7d007dfe2f6b612c653ba207a34.JPGDSCI0006.thumb.JPG.6a2c3c8c3f2fa774608106025d45bd19.JPGDSCI0007.thumb.JPG.db9a9bcd655519a9830397fc6afcf689.JPGDSCI0008.thumb.JPG.b78ac1f9a10366cd93f20472bd035d2a.JPGNext project will be DSCI0009.thumb.JPG.0f4c4f817db6d2d414c8691ee63f770b.JPGDSCI0010.thumb.JPG.9f6b99d1ef939c7200f30eb7f42920fa.JPGDSCI0011.thumb.JPG.b8b1a56c651e18810e45f214f44149a1.JPGDSCI0012.thumb.JPG.7c77310b27993bab8ef3e02fb4ec7b1f.JPGDSCI0013.thumb.JPG.58f10eb2d4881519f4ef4f12cb1c220c.JPGcreating free standing mountains using leftover insulation from the Mountain Modules.

For our battle formations, I created a Table of Organization & Equipment (TO&E) for each force.DSCI0004.thumb.JPG.1c39941367008023d155e96fc162d031.JPG I also created a Battle Log for each force to track the progress the advancement of the pilots skill level.DSCI0005.thumb.JPG.aba1616b25529b481cf5e52d6b2f2b9f.JPG
