Virtual CavCon 2021

Recommended Posts

Talon Games is hosting a virtual CavCon the last weekend in March. I'm working on a tourney list for the virtual tournament.

 

In plain English, I'm making a CAV list more as an exercise in list creation. Still, it is a fun exercise and I plan to paint it up and post both my progress and thoughts about the list as I get ready for the virtual convention.

 

I need to paint some models for inclusion in the upcoming CAV Journal of Recognition (JoR). I also need to paint a force for VCavCon. Why not combine the two and include a JoR model in my force...?

 

Seems good to me...?

 

So, I looked through the models in the JoR and chose the Outlaw.

I love running multiples of the same model - the uniform look to a squad appeals to me. So, I added 4 Outlaw's to my list and included a Razor so the squad has access to EST and ECM.

I needed a primary squad and I love tanks... so I chose 4 Poltergeist's and another Razor.

We're using the CavCon tournament rules from 2020 (which never happened) which limits me to 12 models so I added a specialist squad with 2 Shadow's for their APA2 (and some decent guided missiles).

That's it for my list. It has a good amount of guns, some solid fire support and a decent amount of ECM/APA. Any suggestions, or comments about my choices...?

 

I'll post pictures of my progress as I get my models assembled and painted.

Sorry it took so long to get to this...  life is busy.


I got my models cleaned up as best I could. Mold lines are my bane. I always find them after I've done some important painting.

 

I'm going for a bright yellow scheme with some black and purple accents. I've got the base yellows down. Next step is an orange oil wash - wish me luck. Once the oil is dry I'll use my airbrush to re-establish the highlights.

What are the guidelines for the Virtual CAVCON tournament? As I have next to no actual play experience I am still working on a Force Group and all I can remember was a 4500 TVP limit and C3 points. 

 

I am using the FM app to create my FG and I assume that any FG I create with FM would be legal (if not particularly effective ::D: ). FM lists 'bonus' points. Are they included in the guidelines?

4500 points, 12 models max, 2 squads min, C3 points, no faction doctrines, no infantry, no model customization (SAs, etc).

 

I think that covers it.

Got some work done on my. Cockpit glass. I'm still struggling to pick an accent color and where to put it.

 

Any suggestions...?
