Don't know who might follow this forum and not be a member of the Reaper/CAV Facebook group but there is a new CAV mini for sale at ReaperCon.

 

It is called a Firedrake and is open to all factions. There are pictures and stats on the Facebook pages.

Was it the one that came in the CAVCon loot?

Interesting little bugger. I think I'll group it with some Conquerors, to function as a bodyguard that can contribute to IDF fire missions.

 

Either that or group it with the Enforcers I'd forgotten we're getting, as the core of an Adon OPFOR for demoing CAV to friends.

Bodyguards sounds like fun, but all of its weapons have minimum range of 12. Seems like the bodyguards might get 'under-run'...?

That's a good point, I didn't see the minimum range on the MAC.

 

Hmmm...this will be tricky. It's much more fragile than most of the Rach-accessible stuff of similar speeds, so putting it in an attack squad with them is begging for this guy to be an early casualty. On the other hand, stuff of comparable durability is usually of an incompatible speed rating or mission profile. Aside from intentional outliers like spotters or bodyguards, my preference if for all the units in a given squad to have similar speed and mission profiles, so the whole squad can more easily fight as one.

 

It might be a good idea instead to set it aside until I can start building my planned Ritter OPFOR in earnest.

      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

      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!
