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."

Okay, that stuff is cool. :)

 

Is $5 the absolute minimum pledge to get in on the pledge manager? Unfortunately, all this comes at a time when even five bucks is something I have to think seriously about before committing.

That's what I was told before.  I would love to pre-pay for core, unfortunately money is too tight atm.  Still waiting on confirmation about the terrain pack, but seeing that nothing is locked in until funds are used for things, it should be. 

 

Only thing you can't get in pledge manager without having signed up for it is the dropship tier bonuses, as they're unique to those who pledged in that $125+ pledge level. 

 

All I know is once I get my finances sorted out (which should hopefully be soon) my box is going to be a LOT bigger than just the two paint sets...

I have been telling this to a few of the people that are interested but not fully committed or those on a tight budget. Select at least the $5 pledge level to lock in your backer status and you can add more in the pledge manager. I explain that it wont help as much with unlocking stretch goals, but its better than nothing. I also have been telling them that if there's anything they know they can afford to add in then they can do the best of both worlds to help with stretch goals and get in the pledge manager!

Not to mention...  If you get in even at $5 you lock in Kickstarter pricing.  If you come in after the fact and non-Kickstarter backers have an increased price (like Bones 4 did) it could be a bit of a shock (example: bones 4 core for backers was $100, for late PM access it was $150 - no guarantees this is what will happen with CAV, as nothing of the sort has been mentioned, but it's still something to keep in mind, since a lot of places that allow late pledges have a bit of an extra cost that's in between Kickstarter and retail)

Most of what I play are RPG's in 28mm scale, I'm curious how the terrain will work with miniatures at that scale.

 

It looks like some of the storage tanks could work.  Maybe the wrecks could also be re-imagined.  

 

I think the field fortifications would be hard to use unless you have some very industrious kobolds...

Make them about 3 times bigger and they might work!

      (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.
