  2. The CAV-CON Virtual Painting Contest runs from now till end of Sept.
  3. With CAV-CON '22 coming up we are once again sponsoring CAV-based categories in conjunction with Reaper's Master Paint Open. With that in mind we know everyone can't make it to the show so we will also be offering a virtual show as well running until Sept 30, 2022! To enter simply submit your entries below and make sure to note the category in the subject line please. Enter as many as you want but we will only judge the one (in each category) that we feel is your best work. Categories include: Best Single CAV Model (Armor/Ordnance) Best CAV Squad (Armor/Ordnance) Best CAV Diorama (Diorama) There is a trophy for 1st place in each category (the coveted Gold Dictator!) with medallions for 2nd and 3rd. We will also be providing a $50, $25, and $10 gift certificate in each category as well. SO fire up those brushes!
  4. OK, looks like we three brave souls willing to throw their work out there and for that they should all rewarded! So, what I need from them is the name of a unit, the faction, and the "official" color scheme you want them to wear and we will "canonize" them into CAV lore. I will adjust names to fit their faction if needed so don't try to go to wild! CB
  5. I always dig Malvern green and purple!
  6. Thank you! I have always been a more hard sci-fi guy when it comes to wargaming. I always try to employ as much "real world" into something if I can.
  7. Was just attached pictures that dropped for some reason. SHould be fixed now.
  8. July Paint Challenge: The German's have unveiled their new "Panther" tank with a unique camo-paint scheme. I liked it so much I decided to post a challenge of sorts. Between now and July 31st paint up any CAV model with your interpretation of this paint scheme and post the picture below. I will select the winner, allowing them to 1) pick which faction our version of this tank will belong too and 2) add a canon unit to that faction with their choice of names (this will of course have some limitations, but I will work with you) with their paint job as their official unit "colors." This is a quick, off the cuff contest of sort so bear with me as it progresses! CB https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=429281715874347
  9. While we have no plans in releasing the complete book as a pdf. The core rules will be available in July as a free pdf.
  10. Borderwars '22, May 20-22, Kansas City, Missouri www.hahmgs.org/BW2022.html We will be attending the show as a vendor and have the new Assault on New Memphis board set up! We will be running short demos each day and have a full game both Friday and Saturday evening. Scenario Info https://talon-games.com/downloads/SCENARIO/DROPPING_THE_HAMMER.pdf We hope to see you there! CB
  11. The starter squads are a Specialist Squad. Anything up to four models can go in this type of squad regardless of role (so you could put four aircraft in it for example). A model with the SA: Specialist must always go in a Specialist Squad.
  12. Hi Charles, No progress on having printed cards yet. The rules update is a pdf supplement to the rule book. It will tweak a few things, add some clarifications and add some new rules to try out.

  14. Here is a quick write-up of the scenario I used at Little Wars 2022 with some "in progress" pictures from the show! https://talon-games.com/downloads/SCENARIO/DROPPING_THE_HAMMER.pdf
  15. It is. We are still waiting on all of the parts to come in from the 3d printer we are using. I know its getting closer as I have seen some of the final parts...
  16. A good place to look is Kickstarter. Either a current campaign or a previous one (they usually put up links to their store with the files afterwards). I just scale them to what I want. Also here are some freebies we have: https://www.talon-games.com/downloads/STL/index.html Should scale them 150-160% for CAV scale.
  17. Current convention schedule for 2022...

  18. N Scale is the closest you will get (its 12mm as compared to the games 10mm scale). We use a 1/180th for our scale that works out to one-inch equaling 15feet. Doorways should be about 15mm/9/16ths inch. I use mainly 2" tall trees. Also anything scaled for printing 3d for BT run at 150-160 percent and you should be fine.
