CAV Secret Santa 2018

Recommended Posts

Tldr

  • This year’s SS exchange includes painters from both the Reaper forums and Facebook.

  • You must be a member of one of these sites to participate but you do not have to join the other - unless you want to.

  • Agree to the guidelines for the SS exchange (see below)

  • Answer all of the questions below and PM them to the organizer (me)

  • Paint your assigned miniature and mail it by the deadline

 

Welcome to the 2018 CAV Secret Santa exchange in which we purchase, paint and gift a miniature to another gamer in the spirit of the season. The idea here is to have fun, get to know one another, and spread the joy of CAV:SO. :)

 

Here are our simple exchange guidelines.

  • Please do not sign-up on both the Reaper Forums and Facebook - use one or the other not both.

  • Please keep the cost of your gift to the value of a single blister pack.

  • Fill out the questionnaire below and send it to me in a PM.

  • Please don’t contact your SS exchange partner unless I indicate that they are ok with this. I’ve included this as an option in the questionnaire. Please respect the privacy of  others.

  • Timeline

    • We’ll accept sign-ups until October 15th.

    • I’ll assign partners by October 22nd.

    • A work in process photo of your miniature is due by November 22.

      • Send the photo to the organizer (me) and I’ll share them to the various groups as appropriate.

    • Ship your miniature in time for delivery to its recipient - December 17th if you’re shipping domestically in the United States. If you’re shipping internationally then you’ll need to send your gift earlier.

  • When painting a miniature for your recipient please respect their requests. Some people love the idea of peppermint striped CAVs others are looking for something they can add to a serious force - keep this in mind.

  • If you are mailing internationally don’t send anything other than the miniature unless your recipient has approved all of the extra items. Customs can be a difficult and complicated process especially for plant matter, powder, and other seemingly innocent materials. Please list only the actual cost of the miniature as the value on the customs form and list the item as a gift.

  • Everyone who signs up must understand that Secret Santas can and do fail. There is no guarantee that you'll receive a model. Such is the nature of these exchanges.

  • If something happens and you can not meet your commitment please contact the organizer (me) as early as possible. I’ll make arrangements to take care of your recipient. There is no shame in this… life happens to all of us.

Last chance to sign up for the CAV Secret Santa is this weekend.
 
Think of this opportunity, one of you will get @CAVBOSS as your painter. You could ask for a dropship as your painted model. The chances might not be great that you'll get it BUT those chances are better than winning the 1.6 Billion dollar lottery you bought that ticket for... :P
 
Painting assignments go out on October 22nd.
 
Fill out the questionnaire at the start of this thread and message it to me.
 
Paint a CAV and make a new friend!

Sorry sent originally to CAVBOSS he knows my hidden desires now!  You should have the PM.  I'll trim him out of the conversation next time I get to a computer

And who knows, maybe, if you've been very, very good this year...

      Terezinya was painted up to be a vampire character in my dnd game, the rest are fairly self explanatory. 
       
      The translucent green Bones were given a coating of Grass Green India Ink and then had details highlighted out. They're retained their translucent quality while having better detail visibility.

      Finally sort of cleaned up my desk, so there's actually room to work again... Not quite enough room for hubby to work on his side yet, but we'll get there soon. ish. TM. 
       
       
      Tentatively calling them the "Fiendish Flying Foxes" or something to that effect, but not fully certain yet hence the title not being as... fluffy as they usually are for me.  Kind of want to sneak "fire" in there somewhere too (Fierce, Fiery, Flying Foxes sort of rolls off the tongue), but haven't quite figured that out just yet.   ...And yes, I like alliteration, for some strange reason.
       
      Anyways!  Been slowly collecting various CAVs, and since the race I like the fluff of the most currently isn't really available (at least until September-ish, aka Malvernis in the 3rd kickstarter) I figured I'd start with a Ritterlich group!  While I do have the rulebook, I haven't really read it yet but it's on the to-do "eventually" list....  So I aimed to go with at least 2 of what I liked, and 4 of what I really liked.  Seems to work at least for basics out of the gate anyways...  Thanks to a package going missing for over two months (and being reshipped due to such), I wound up with a few more than originally planned in some areas ^_^;;;;  
       
      So, just what do the foxes have, at least so far?
       
      Attack: 2x 72231 Cataphract, 4x 72050 Firedrake, 4x 72267 Rhino II, 4x 72283 Sabertooth, 4x 72273 Tiger, 2x 72278 Wolverine
      Fire Support: 6x 72282 Cheetah, 2x 72230 Silverback, 2x 72201 Tiamat
      Recon: 2x 72208 Cougar
       
      Extras as why not: 6x 72284 Enforcer (came as freebies, so maybe spoils of war? :P)
       
      Most are still in blister packs, but I do have five of them on the desk so far.....


      ^My first Cougar....  Who will also be the first, uhm... subject for my Vallejo terrain paste...

      ^Initial layout for the bases for my Cataphracts!

      ^My two Silverbacks, although I suspect more will see the table at some point because I apparently love missiles.
       
       
      Why the 40mm circular bases?  Uhm, well...  It's partially because I prefer circular ones, partially because they're more stable on 40mm bases, and also because there's more room to do basing stuff with ^_^;;;;;;

      Haven't post anything here for so long...
       
      I'm not really following any color scheme here, since I am not familiar with the lore of CAV at all (I'm more interested in the game).
       
      Also I wish I learnt a bit more about painting technique for glowing effect before painting the windows...

      Attached are photos of a slew of different miniatures and projects I've been working on in 2019. 
       
      The Battleguard Golem is clearly a Warforged Paladin in my mind as was painted accordingly; he's mounted onto a Frontline Games base. The Jungle Titan is on the base of a Reaper Dragon I gave my son as a toy previously. The Galladoria Games entrances are both attached to Frontline Games Stones Dungeon tiles. The Terratiles are from a Kickstarter that started fulfilling last month; they were a ReaperCon vendor in 2017 and make good stuff! On the CAV Thunderbird and Raptor, I wanted to simulate some lights; not as much love for the Kahn.  The Thunderbird was missing a shoulder mount so I subbed in a axehead from a long-age discarded figure. The Iron Golem has inspired a monster in my DND world called a Forgeblast Iron Golem and I wanted to simulate discoloration of the iron as though it is being superheated from within; I also wanted it to look as though heat was trying to escape from a few plate patches. Khai the Huntress from Bombshell is on a metal Reaper skulls base; I painted three of the skulls with a glowing green eye to add more interest.   
      Like everyone else, just trying to be creative, get better and have fun.

      Hey there, here's some of my Almirthil CAV's from the 7th CAV Guards "Never Fail" Regiment.  With Almirthil have some "Soviet" trappings, I ran with it and used an olive-y green for my units similar to Soviet armor from the Cold War period!  All logos and the bear mural are hand painted (the squiggle lines are numbers for the faction!) 
       
      Concussion CAV (Fire Support)
       



       
      Bear(s) CAV (fire support)
