CAV: Strike Ops III Kickstarter September 19th 2018

Recommended Posts

I'd like to thank @CAVBOSS and RAFM for the quick turnaround to get my package back out after Canada Post finally got it back to Ontario.

It appears to be moving much quicker this time and showed up as in town this morning (they were estimating this Thursday). With any luck (I'm due, right?)  they will try to deliver it today.  This will presumably fail, since I'm at work and my wife is out of town, but it should go to the post office for pick up after that, so I might be able to get it tonight, or more likely tomorrow.

Glad to hear it's in the right town now! 

 

...Which reminds me, I need to send that email in that I keep totally forgetting to send in. 

 

I'm definitely looking forward to getting several of these on the paint table - yup, even those feisty Templar! 

 

I also suspect this is where some of us will start trying to get details out of CAVBOSS for when the dropship Kickstarter will be happening (and if the resin minis will be available for a while) - I want to make sure I've enough money to get in on that ^_^ dropship over pirate ship I say! (besides, I have until at least the end of August to get the pirate ship)

I have a large box!

 

Sadly, I also have dishes I need to do before opening the large box.  Sigh.  Stupid adulting.....

 

Adulting sucks.  Open box now and see things in said box. They deserve to take over the dining room table! ^_^

Oddly enough, they did (I don't have enough free surface in my paint room to sort all that) .  Tanks and CAVs all sorted and tallied. Only one missing piece, and one extra Obake so far.

Planes, paint and so so much terrain will have to wait for tomorrow...er, later today....

Only real thing I had is one Obake was missing one of the long arm thingies that goes above the cockpit.  I really should email CAVBoss about that *laughs nervously* I'll get the email written soon - won't be tonight, I can barely keep my head up, so it's time for bed..

By any chance, it wouldn't have dropped inside the larger bag by any chance?

 

One of my smaller baggies had opened and for a moment I thought I was also missing an arm until I found it in the bottom of the larger bag.

I'll look when I get home, but I don't remember seeing anything loose.

Inventory complete.

Just the one missing piece. An extra Obake and an extra sprue of K-Rails.

Amazingly, considering the odyssey my package went on with Canada Post, my paints all seemed fine with a quick test. None separated or go super thick, all seemed to cover a test fig. A few seem more transparent than others but I'm assuming that is just how they are.

Tshirt looks like it will fit, dog tags are cool, patch is awesome, sticker is so nice I placed an order back a while ago to snag an extra. One will be going on my marshaling bucket (other folks have ferrari and mcclaren stickers, mine has bombshell babes and dropships...). 

 

Excellent job @CAVBOSS.  I'm ready for my Dropship(s) now ::D:

What do plans for CAV IV: Flesh out the factions look like at the current time?

 

 

Not sure yet. Obviously the current state of things has really messed with our schedule this year. Two steps forward and one step back kinda thing!

Is the dropship still a planned thing for in the future?

 

Huzzah!

I am also curious about the dropship! 

 

To be perfectly honest, I'm curious not because I have anything I can do with it, but because the back of my mind refuses to let go of the possibility of attempting a 7-day challenge with it.... :mellow:

 

Huzzah!

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

      So this is my year in review.  It was a strange year, what with working from home since early March.  I initially thought that would mean I'd paint more, but after spending 8+ hours every day sitting 3 feet from my painting desk but working, it really didn't work out that way. Eventually I was able to get some stuff painted so things are working better now.
      At the start of the year I decided I wanted to not just pick up some random Star Wars Legion stuff to paint, but to actually play the game.  Unfortunately everything shut down before I could watch a game at the LFGS.
      After I got enough prepped at home, my very patient and understanding wife agreed to play some small games so I could sort out the rules.  It must be reasonably fun for her, we just played a game on Monday....
      Eventually the store opened up for play again and I got in about a half dozen games before the latest wave hit and put a stop to that.  If all goes well we should be back to playing in a couple weeks.
       
      As far as painting:

      That was my output for the year.  I count it as 52 figures (51 bases but the e-Web has two Snowtroopers on the base.....). Not bad at all for me, especially considering it took me two months to paint the first unit of Stormtroopers and I had a big slump during the hot part of the summer where my output was nil.
      As you can probably tell, I play Imperials. And, because I'm using the premium bases and painting them, I can only field what I've painted.  So I've been pushing on painting Imperials.  The only rebel unit I've painted is the Rebel Veterans.  The LFGS rain a painting contest online during the shutdown and I figured painting yet more white and black wasn't going to impress....
       
      Here is the breakdown:
      Rebels:
      1 box of Rebel Veterans 
       
      Imperials
      2 units of Stromtroopers
      1 unit of Scout Troopers
      2 units of Snowtroopers
      1 e-WEB heavy blaster team
      2 units of Speederbikes
      Darth Vader (the starter box edition)
      General Veers
      and the Imperial Officer and FX-9 Medical Droid from the Imperial Specialists Personnel Expansion.
       
      Looking forward to 2021 I still have a lot of Imperials left to paint. Luckily most are assembled, some are primed and a number of Stormtroopers already have a wash and drybrush done.
      This is good because I got the Clone Wars starter for Christmas (awesome wife strikes again!) so I'll be starting to assemble Droids soon....
