  1. These models are finished. I was able to get some billboards printed up for the larger building. These have been fun. I am hoping to do some more of these, but I don’t have any more printed up, so it will be a while before I get back to these.

  2. Progress shot, I was able to get the stripes done and the wasp painted on for unit mark. I think the unit will be the ‘Black Wasps’. The canopy is probably done as well, but I may try some more blending on it, not sure yet? For the base I will be doing something other than what is in the photo below, but I haven’t decided just yet.

  3. Time for an update. I was able to get a second CAV Bay completed. This one is going to have a few modifications, starting with the addition of some magnets, so models can be placed and replaced as needed. Once painted up the magnets, at least for now are somewhat difficult to see, but that works as I may also use this bay for other projects as well. They are very versatile. Next pict shows the model in place. Thanks to Dave C. For the model suggestion, perfect fit and works well for the display look I am going for. The model also has magnets in the feet, so I can take it out of the display Bay, and then place it on a washer base that the rest of my CAV models use. Then the model can be used for game play as normal. This project will continue as I have more display ideas and more CAV Bays to paint up and have fun with.

  6. That's fantastic. I have my bases magnetized, but would never have considered also securing the CAVs to the base with them. I love that pattern on the Imperator, too. Great work all around.

  11. Below are a couple test/WIP shots of a Crossbow aircraft I have been experimenting with a little bit. I would like to get a recipe for painting the flyers fairly quickly, but nicely and detailed. The panel lines/details look fantastic in the dual cast product, IMO. For this I will be using my airbrush to add layers of shades over darker basecoats. For this test model I used some lighter grays, so the panel lines would pop more as dark lines. For future models like the Tsuiseki, I will be using other colors, but basically the same idea. Airbrush shading is done on the pict above. The pict below has the panel lines touched up and darkened. More to come hopefully as I get the last of the small details painted up. Next will be the unit stripes and colors.

  12. MDF or Acrylic ones would be great! Sign me up for a set or two! I was also wondering if it would be possible to get something that marks or helps keep track of strike points as well; like sets of numbers or letters that would help keep track of them from one activation to another and who placed them? Then it would be easier to remember if an attacker has used that same strike point and will get the bonus for consecutive rounds of shooting to the same spot.

  13. The new ones are built around the new rules update. I will be uploading a downloadable copy, either this week or next (still playing catch up after being gone two weeks). The mdf/acrylic ones will be coming after that before the end of year.

  14. On the Plastic CAVs (and any other mini) - I dip in Simple Green, then rinse and let dry. I don't prime plastic - from Reaper, they say NOT to prime the plastic minis, just wash, dry, and paint. My daughter (13) and I just painted a couple of the wrecked CAV tiles - I dipped them a couple of weeks ago and rinsed them off (dab dry with a paper towel), Painted up without any issues.

  16. I have completed the next step in getting these models ready for the table top. They have been sanded, and bondo, gap filler applied to smooth out some of the print lines. Then I applied automotive filler primer to further help with smoothing. The prepared/smoothed 3D prints you see below are ready for painting. I did not fill in the print lines where all the windows and such are because I don’t want to accidentally fill in any details. Further painted pictures are on they once painting is complete.

  17. Just a quick note that there will be no CAV HQ Live! tonight due to the holiday. We will be back next week as we start work on the Rach OpFor and discuss a new scenario that we will be releasing that day. Happy Thanksgiving for all of our US players. Be safe! CB
