Found a few pieces that are NIC and...

Recommended Posts

I found a few CAV ppieces at a store near Pittsburg... 24428 Sabertooth for $9, 24429 Ogre for $8 and 27360 Dictator II FOR $10. As these are older Not In Catalog pieces, how do you search for them on the website? Oh, and did I do OK?

CAV stuff is in both the CAV:SO section and the Robot Supply Depot section.

 

AAAHHHHGGGRRRGHH!!11!! Too Slow.

 

And agree about the Dictator II.

Yeah, over lunch I searched on name, and they all came up, well, except the sabertooth...  had to find him using the KDM in front.  I paid retail prices, but the only two stores that carry CAV are not in my home state.  And, I do like to support the little game stores in the cities I visit.

$8 is definitely not retail price for a Mastodon. It was originally around $13.

 

And Sabertooth is mispelled in Reaper's store. They switched the "er" to "re".

That's a spelling difference caused by a difference in dialect, see this article (for example) for more information. I have no idea which spelling is canonical in the game.

 

And, as is traditional when posting a message about spelling, you have a misspelling: "mispelled".  ^_^

That's a good price on the Ogre; I just bought one of those over christmas, and I think I paid between $11 and $13 for it.

 

Anything with a 24xxx SKU you'll find in the Robot Supply Depot, but they don't show up in search.

I got the "er" spelling from looking at it's CAV 2 data card, but going back even farther, its pretty obvious that Reaper couldn't ever keep it straight.  :wacko:

 

The first place we officially saw it was the JoR 2, where they spelled it Sabretooth in the table of contents, in the fluff, and on the data card, but at the top of the model's 2 page spread they spelled it Sabertooth in big huge letters.  The CAV 1.5 data cards spell it "er" as do all 3 versions of the CAV 2 cards. My guess would be that Reaper originally wanted it to be "Sabretooth" but at some point they made the decision to use the American spelling b/c that's the way most of their players were spelling it anyways.

 

edit - and now I just noticed this! http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/sabre/sku-down/24577   :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

      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.....
