Why did I choose this color scheme...

I know what you mean.  I figured out how to do the panel lining like I wanted.  It' just took wrecking most of the current paint job to figure out.  I'll fix it if I can, if not it gets the dip.  Plus would be that I could redo with the airbrush if I restart.  I'll try and save it first.

OK... time to add my "in progress" pic. I decided to go with a Terran Firedrake currently being used by the mercenary company Sal's Slammers. The are currently stationed on a desert world so I'm going for a Italian style desert camo pattern from WW2. This is just the wash so far.

I absolutely love the fire Drake but didn't go to reapercon so didn't get one. What's the timeline on those becoming available?

got most everything to where I want it (to the best of my ability that is).  I'll do some touchups, give it a coat of sealer and then it's on to trying some edge highlighting.  Any suggestions for edge highlighting red?

I use either a "redder" red if my underlying color is like a burgundy, or mix bright orange and red if the underlying color is a brighter red.

Pretty much done; just requires basing and sealing!

Some zenithal highlighting.

Then wet palette highlights and shading color on all the panels (exaggerated, too stark).

Then air brush from the bottom to dust the figure to blend, and airbrush the primary color from the top and front to blend the rest, then I went back with the washed out blue again from the bottom.

Lastly, white edges for the highlights, and reaper corporeal shadow for the shadows.

      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!
