Remember we're doing this to have fun and make friends. Chat, share tips, tease us with WIP photos or text - but don't give away who you're painting for.

 

CAVa Claus is watching... :)

############### ORIGINAL POST BELOW ########################

 

I come to the Reaper Forums from the Privateer Press forums. In my time there I got involved with a Secret Santa (SS) exchange where a group of people got together and agreed to paint and gift a model for a randomly selected member of the SS exchange.

 

In an effort to generate more community activity on the CAV forums I'm curious if there is any interest in a CAV-centric gift exchange? I haven't put together my thoughts on how to organize it yet but thought I'd see if their was enough interest to make it work.

 

I like CAV, I like the Reaper forums but the CAV sub-forums seem very, very quiet.

 

I'd honestly like to get to know more of you and what better way than to paint a mini for my CAV neighbor in the spirit of the season.

Here are some simple guidelines.

 

  • Anyone who is interested should PM me with the following information:
  • Name
  • Address
  • A set of desired models from which your SS will choose 1 to paint for you
  • Paint Scheme preferences - if you don't specify you might get a 'Peppermint CAV' in the spirit of the season. :)
  • Are you willing to ship your painted model outside your native country?

We're starting this later than we really should but I think we still have time. Let's set the cutoff date for signups at Nov. 10th. At that point if we have people interested I'll assign the Secret Santas and everyone can get painting.

 

Everyone who signs up agrees to post a 'progress picture' to this thread by 12/1/2017 and then should be ready to ship by about 12/18/17 depending on how far your model has to go.

 

Everyone who signs up must understand that Secret Santas can and do fail. There is no guarantee that you'll receive a model. Such is the nature of these exchanges...

 

That said I've been known to paint extra models to make up for Secret Santas that go missing.

 

The idea is to have fun and get to know each other. I'd really like to see the CAV sub-forum become an active, fun, and friendly place to hang out.

It may be worth limiting this to ones currently in production.  If I receive a request for a Duelist, you're getting a happy pink Lawn Gnomic.  ::P:

It is up to the 'gifter' to decide what to give. If you get a list that has hard to find CAVS, a 'Big Tator', or something else moderately impossible to get feel free to paint them a stand of infantry. 

 

CAVa Claus can be unforgiving. :)

Im debating, I well and truly suck at camo, so I'm weighing possible requested schemes too.

 

Secret Santa is not about painting skill its about fellowship. You make friends with people on the forum and have a model to start a new force with.

 

Don't let skill hold you out.

      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.

      72608 Fuel dump

      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!
