Sound Off for CAV II KS!

Recommended Posts

Got all mine and have 16 left to put together. So far I think I'm missing 2 and have 1 mini missing a part but I'll know for sure later tonight when I finish. Not bad at all.

 

BTW, Not a fan of gluing hover bases and flight bases together.

Got mine yesterday as well.  Got a couple assembled minis that look like Imperators but on steroids.  Searched around but haven't been able to find a name for them.  Any ideas on what they are?  I assume they are "bonus" figures?

Sounds like you are talking about the Enforcer minis? They were done in a harder plastic than the rest of the KS.

Have you tried the GW mold removing tool yet? If not get it!

 

 I just picked this up and it works really well! Files don’t work well and this is much easier than a using a blade. Thanks for recommending this tool!

The harder PVC on the enforcer is a nice improvement. I wasn't missing any thing from my order, but dand there were a lot of minis. Spent yesterday afternoon and this morning putting them mostly together with three tubes of superglue. 

 

with a few white CAV my son was playing with from the first KS.

Seeing everyone’s tables full of CAV never gets old. I have been busy so am only maybe 20% through everything. I am looking forward to taking my CAV group photo soon I hope!

I know. I looked at the coffe table and realized I would need a larger table to play with all the toys. I couldn't believe how much superglue it took to secure just legs to the CAV and tracks/hovers to the tanks.

I just ordered more glue as I am flying through it as well! So far they have gone together pretty easily. These are a noticeable improvement over the first KS an those were nicely done for the most part.

That's some inventive assembly your son has with those white CAVs!

Finally got my box.  The fridged second-winter of the arctic north attempted to reclaim CAV as its own, but I prevailed and the spoils of war shall be mine!

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      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!

      Hey look, yet another Jasper topic.....
       
      But this one is different (I hope).  I actually have a time frame in mind, to get this finished before the end of 2020, and submitted for the annual diorama contest.
       
      I love dioramas, and I've been pretty happy with the few I've made. BUT I always put off getting started and then end up rushing over Christmas to get everything done.
      So this year I'm starting in January (if just barely) so that I will hopefully get some stuff done before December.
       
      I've had the idea for this diorama since the very first moment I saw my first "sneak preview" of Khanjira (that would have been approximately Fri, Oct 25, 2013, 7:57 PM ADT, according to when I got the email from Kickstarter).
      My first though was something like "What a beast! Imagine if he was fighting something from a smaller scale, like CAV...."
      So that has been bouncing around in my head ever since.  
      Then I was messaging with @Pochi a few weeks ago about the contests and got talking about dioramas, and I mentioned this idea, and she said I HAD to do it.....so here we are. 
       
      Basic concept is the classic Kaiju attacking a future city harbour. CAVs (any or all of tanks, vehicles, mechs, infantry, maybe even aircraft) defending. (I briefly considered going even smaller scale as I have quite a bit of 6mm stuff too, but CAVs are easier to work with,  I have about a billion of them, and they are awesome).
       
      Today was a beginning.  I grabbed some stuff and laid it out just to get an idea of a size I'm going to want.

      Obviously I just grabbed what was handy to get some scale. Khanjira is represented by my 7 days Khanjira (handy, that ). I plan to try to get him a little more upright, since he won't be on his base and at least his front foot will be "under water". With his pose (which I don't think I have the skill or know how to adjust too much) I'm thinking maybe an elevated highway that he has just crushed to be what his right leg is on.  That or a boat of some sort....we'll see.
      The box is just a reference for the land, glasses are just some buildings.  I'm picturing something similar to the Halifax waterfront with boardwalks or something and docks/jetties (the grey upside down drawer represents) and then big buildings. Army will be in place along the waterfront, so some barricades and stuff. Possibly a trench of energy blasted ruin from the "breath weapon" if I think I can pull that off.  Again, we'll see.
      So just from the mock up, this is going to be fairly massive...like approaching 2 foot kind of dimensions 
      Not something I would do if I was following advice on building award winning dioramas, but then that's not what I'm focusing on.  I just want to make the image in my mind a reality, and I'm using the contest deadline to hopefully focus me.
      I'm also going to have to learn to do a bunch of new stuff for this, which should be fun!
       
      Step one will be to dig out my other Khanjira and start cleaning up up.  And decide on what I'm going to use for a base for this thing.....
