CAV Non-commission Job.

Here is the current situation with the 5/18th., MercNet Bn. Sorry for the Photos my camera is not good for close ups, which you miss the decals. I will attempt to rectify that. So I am about 2/3rds done. The Thunderbirds still need more yellow and they all need various amounts of decals, the tanks and Emperor have the MercNet decals applied but lack the numbers.

This group is for the new MercNet Report in CAV General. I have loaded them here as I have not found any other way to load them to "My Media" file and I cannot upload direct to CAV General.

Of these, none of them is my work, the first two were done by Spastica.

I may add a few more Aircraft from BT that are older castings, that have some substance to them, as the newer castings are rather skimpy.

Well folks, here is yet another project piled on to my over loaded schedule.  What I have here is a Hot Wire Foam Factory cutter:

post-9266-0-85223000-1412128263_thumb.jpg

 

These are the various BattleTech map boards:

post-9266-0-82732900-1412128416_thumb.jpg

 

What I will attempt to do is take the map boards to a local print shop and see if these can be copied on a lighter paper.  I intend to cut up the maps based upon the terrain features.  Next I plan to pick up some 1/2" foam boards and use the cut out terrain shapes as a pattern to cut up the foam.  I am going with 1/2" instead of the 1" level size of the game to make it appear a little more realistic by having a progression to a level.   Any hex that is not a full hex for a level, in other words, if a hex has an elevation line on it, it will be 1/2".  This will be duplicated on the upper levels.   If successful we will try out the game with the limitation of level changes restricted to the areas with 1/2" increments.

Black Cutlass stopped up from Lowville the other day to work on his newest additions to his colorful force.  He is learning painting miniatures is a tad bit different than painting a house.  He is seeing the need for good quality brushes, which is harder to come by locally with businesses leaving the state or shutting down.  I include photos under Fluorescent light and photo flash.

We will have to keep an eye on B.C. if he keeps enlarging his force like this.

Here I have various base support vehicles I am working on:post-9266-0-94561800-1420859901_thumb.jpg

1st. up is the Thor Maintenance and Support  Vehicle.  The main boom plugs in to the CAV to supply various POL products, while the lift tends to external maintenance needs:

This is the Hetzer Mobile Power Unit that plugs in to supply power for maintenance tasks while the power plant is shut down:

Here is a project I mentioned before.  This is a print of a BT map that I am cutting up based upon contour features.  I will be expanding these print to a 3D gaming board.  The base level (table) will be Water Level 2.  I have yet to cut this area up.

post-9266-0-04077500-1422921103_thumb.jpg

I will be using the scale of 10' per level, but I will be using transition levels of 5'.  I decided to do this based upon using  ½" thick foam board so this necessitated my choosing where the half steps will be to allow a gradual climb, or descent, to the various levels.  The standard movement rates apply except where a transition would be a full 10' step then this will slow you down going in either direction.
