So I've thought a lot about this, and it's shaping my ideas of what base colors I want on a battlemat for the table.  I've seen a lot of earth-green layouts, but I've been painting my hills a more neutral slate-grey with brown and red overtones. 

 

What are other people doing for terrain colors besides the standard earth tones?

 

-- I MUCH prefer a non-green game board as they are just so prevalent in our hobby. I've done just about every color combo their is at one time or another over the years.

 

Example of a more recent one...

Here is my "Big Dogs" Terran camo scheme.  The colors remain the same, but the different roles have a different camo layout scheme (i.e., Attack, Recon, Fire Support, etc...).  This guy was painted several years ago.  I am now experimenting with my new air brush to speed everything up. I don't really do much highlighting on my CAVs as they are for play not show.

Here are some of my Ritterlich from the past CAVCon.  5th Dornheim Brigade, "Marienburg Lancers" though I feel the color is "off" for most of the photos as the scheme is a light blue with black and red accents (though the black always occurs on the arms/shoulders and shins)

Wait, were you at CAVCon in Lewisville last month?

I think we'll have to plan on some sort of meet up for us CAV players next Reapercon.  I know I plan on being there and playing some more CAV, including the tournament if there's going to be one.  Which I think is a safe assumption.

      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!
