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!

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!

      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!

      A shadow breaks through the clouds, filling hearts with wonder and dread; their fiery breaths captivating memory. These beasts live through songs that last entire generations, stories that become legend; for what could ever compare to the sight of a Dragon? LAIR is proud to present Legendary Dragons 3D-Printable Miniatures. Based on the Legendary Dragons 5e supplement by Jetpack7.
       

       
      Handled by the same people as Dragons of the Red Moon, which has so far delivered some amazing STLs

      About
      Hello everybody,
      We want to introduce you to Iván Sánchez, aka “Blocsanchez”, one of the members of HeraModels. We are thrilled to share with you his first sketchbook “Wasteland”. Within the last year, Iván has been working in the content of this book what wasn't easy to combine with his daily work of miniature concept artist in our small study. Iván is very passionate about traditional drawing, that is the reason why every design in this book is a pencil sketch except for the cover that is digital.
      With this and our future projects, our objective is to create an editorial line of fantastic art. We decided we didn't want a typical sketchbook, collecting drawings from forgotten notebooks where you can find all types of characters; we wanted to make something personal and with an argumental line.
      Then, after a lot of thinking, we decided to make a book collection of different races. “Wastelands” is the first chapter of the collection and embodies illustrations and sketches of barbaric warriors of the barren lands.
      Original Art of "Wastelands" example for pledges #5 & #6  The original book contains 48 pages but with your help we hope this number keeps increasing. We have selected the best designs with more than 50 characters and we hope all of them can be published in the book. We want the book to be handy and user friendly that is why its size is 17x24cm (6,7”x9,5”). Through the campaign, we will unlock different rewards that will make possible to increase the number of pages of this book and will vive you the possibility to get exclusive products only in Kickstarters. In this campaign, you´ll not only get our sketchbook “Wastelands”, it will be possible to choose the option to get an original sketch made by Ivan inside your book or to get one of the original illustrations printed on it. Later we will explain the campaign more widely.
      Original Sketch example for pledges #3 & #4  Later on we will explain every detail of the content in each pledge to make sure that you get what you really want. Besides, while the campaign goes on and we unlock other products we will update the content of each pledge.
        For those who have chosen pledge #5 or #6 you could choose between one of the following original illustrations, you just need to send us an email echen you make the reservation with the number of the illustration that you prefer. You can see the images in a bigger size in our website .

      Story
      Welcome to our newest Kickstarter! You'll notice this one is a little different. In this Kickstarter we are offering the STL Files of some of our classic models for you to print on your home 3D printers. These files, created and designed by John Bear Ross, offer tons of combinations and entrance into an amazing realm of sci-fi models. These models come scaled in 15mm AND 28mm!
      Now, keep in mind, these are for personal use, not for commercial or resale. We own the copyrights and designs but for the sake of this Kickstarter, we are allowing the files to go to you, our loyal supporters.
      So why are we doing this Kickstarter?
      Short answer…We are raising funds to increase our in-house printing capabilities. This will allow us to develop more detailed models, models in larger scales, and bring out even more product lines. Rebel Minis is growing and we want you guys to be part of it.
      But we can’t do it without you, so please consider pledging, and spreading the word!
      Thank you,
      Mike and JBR
      The Reward
      We have only one. ALL the files listed to be available for one pledged amount.  You get the files to everything you see scaled in both 15mm and 28mm.
      Your pledge of $40 gets the whole kit n’ caboodle.  Once again, this is for PERSONAL USE! You do not have permission to distribute, copy or sell the files. *C'mon man, you know that ain’t cool!*
      Stretch Goals
      If we reach our goals, we will unlock stretch goals. These files will be added to the reward and download at the same time.
      Delivery
      After the Kickstarter ends, and if it is successful, you will get a survey to confirm your email. Later, when they are ready, we will email you the links for download.
      The Files
      Look at all these Glorious Files, they can be yours!
      Can I print the weapons and vehicles on FDM and Resin Printers? 
      Yes, everything should be printable on both types of printers found in common use. Most of our prints are optimized for desktop resin printers like the Anycubic Photon or the Elegoo Mars, but FDM should be able to support most builds. If we encounter files that are too large for resin printers, we will happily go back and supply sliced and optimized files to be printed in smaller chunks

      My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago.  2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
      I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
      I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter.  I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
      So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.

      I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest,  so I guess they are alright.
       
      It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see?  Sloooooow.)
      But the whole unit is finally done.

       
      Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
       
      Now back to all those Stormtroopers.
