CAV KICKSTARTER III... with less than 24 hours to go until we kick this show off, I wanted to share another preview with you, but first a little back-story on how this one came about. With two ki

Thought I'd post a few images of something I was working on last week from KS2!  This is a Ritter Lynx transport in the 5th Marienburg Brigade aircraft camouflage, number "211."

Kind of sucks though that the dropship isn't happening, but glad to hear at some point in the future it will receive its own kickstarter

Im sure @CAVBOSS has already considered this, but a dropship Kickstarter sure would pair well with the removed/remaining aircraft as stretch goals.... and maybe terrain as well...

It's a shame that it isn't panning out as planned. Though I wasn't going for the dropship itself, I know a lot of people were excited for it.

 

Still, in my view it was properly communicated (a key factor in many campaigns), and were getting the Pillager as a free extra.

 

The Pillager looks huge! How does it compare in size with the Enforcer?

I believe this a good idea, too. 

I have some more thoughts I'd like to share about the state of the KS, but have decided that I will wait and do an "after action report" when the KS is done, as I don't want to unduly disrupt the squad in the middle of this battle (KS).

We have (and will continue to) considered many possible future variations on what we can do next time. Every project allows us to find out what works and what doesn't. We tried a wider spread of stretch goals to appeal to a wider audience and apparently we haven't found the right mix yet... but as it sits right now we have 13 new models we will be adding to production and ultimately that's what these are about...adding new models to play with and if that's where it ends u, then I'm ok with that. We can't have two competing SGs at the end as they would just wipe each other out. I chose what I think we could reasonably expect to do.

 

The Pillager as it sits now is about 59mm, so about 4 mm taller than the Enforcer (that is sans base). That may change for final production (a tad smaller but not any bigger).

It ain't over yet! we got 8 more days to get the word out AND KSII jumped by a significant amount in its last several days! It can happen here too!

 

BIG STOMPY ROBOTS!!!

It's recovered somewhat from the drop that occurred because of people dropping their pledge amounts for the dropship that is no longer on the radar, but it hasn't fully recovered yet.  It was at $40,600 USD give or take when that announcement went out...  And it had dropped down to $38,400 USD last night.  Glad to see it's recovered somewhat though.

Back up over 40k with 20+ new backers today! that's exciting, not sure if its payday for mech-fans or what, but I'm hoping the momentum continues!

There was a signal boost email from Reaper.  I'm guessing that helped somewhat. ^_^

 

Either way, I'm glad to see those numbers rising again!

CAV KICKSTARTER 3 UPDATE! With a little over a week left, the Core Force Reward (available with only a $100 pledge) now has 48 models in it (that's a retail value of almost $300).
We are almost to the less than $2 a model level and have plenty of stretch goals to add even more. Each stretch goal ADDS 4 more models to the core force and opens up a new vehicle model as an optional reward add-on.

So check it out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cavboss/talon-games-cav-strike-ops-iii

Posted a thread over on theminiaturepage hopeful it might add a bit more traffic

 

Nice to see some forward momentum again now the Autumn & winter approaches I'll be starting another new painting thread as I paint another themed Cav force from my previous KS, probably an Adon force, still deciding on colour schemes that I'll be using for each force. And continuing the 10mm City buildings thread with more buildings that will be added.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      Finished a couple more gang members for Warlord Games Judge Dredd game.  Painted with reaper and Vallejo.  In theory they'll get used for demos so I didn't want to burn a lot f time on the bases.  These were some of their first figures in their new resin.  It's kind of like Bones I as far as material goes.  Also think they some of their early  ones in 3d modelling as the "engraving" is almost too light.  makes it hard to pick out details and you've got to be careful not to apply too heavy a coat or you'll fill in lines pretty easily.

      'Scorch' Sotniko was hot. This whole damn world was hot, but this stinking jungle somehow seemed to be hotter still. The other mercenaries he was moving through the jungle with looked like they were feeling about the same as he was. Strange Midnight, their scout, didn't seem to be bothered as much as everyone else, but that was because he came from the rad deserts of Zargove-3. This was just a nice stroll in the woods for him. Scorch knew that they'd be at the rendezvous point in another half hour or so, and then he'd get a break. He'd be able to refill his canteens, as well as to remove the heavy Intergalactic Marine Expeditionary Force armor that he'd gotten a few months back off the black market. Between the heavy armor, the protective anti-flash gear, the flamethrower he was carrying, and all the rest of his gear, he had a fairly heavy load. It'd be good to able to shed the weight, even if only for a little while. Some of the other guys gave him grief about his chosen equipment, but they hadn't seen what the bugs they were hunting could do to a man; Scorch had. From what he'd heard, the IMEF armor was supposed to offer a substantial amount of protection from the claws and fangs that most of their current enemy was armed with. Likewise, the flamethrower was good for keeping them at a distance and killing whole swaths of the things at once. Yeah, it might be hot, but the way Scorch figured it, that was better than all the screamin', bleedin' and dyin' he remembered from his first encounter with the bugs.
       
      Nothing fancy, just a fairly quick tabletop paint job to shake the rust off.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers! 
       
      $100 level has 40+ miniatures and FREE USA shipping!
       
      RBJ Game Company has created 18 KS projects, mostly miniatures. Let me know your experience with them if you backed before.
