Hey all - I haven't been painting as much the last few weeks since school is back in session, and that means I've suddenly gotten very busy.  But I did manage to put aside all the usual hassles a couple nights ago and paint up a few Rach fighters! 

 

The paint scheme is the same as my usual Rach force:  the Khaki triad mainly, purple accents, and then a blood red cockpit.  The big difference between my fighters and others you might see on any other CAV table is that mine are well above the ground.  I wanted to give my fliers the bird's-eye view they deserve, so I mounted them on heavy washers and used brass rod to elevate them.  I think these are in the 6" ballpark, but I would have to double-check.  

 

Also, I still need to flock the bases and tidy these up, but I think this is close enough for now.

They look great! I love the tall stands! Do you have any trouble with them tipping over that high?

Not at all - the washers are very heavy, and I glued a good heap of playground sand to them as well.  I would guesstimate just the rod alone is as heavy as the fighter, and the washer is heavier than the rod.  I would guess the weight ratio of washer & rod to fighter is probably something like 3:1.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Picked up a bunch of the CAV terrain before Christmas t use for CAV and/or 28mm sci-fi gaming. Have been working my way through it and thought I'd post what I've finished so far.

      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
