  1. @CAVBOSS do you have these letters as an actual font we could import into windows? If so, @Dave.C you could print them out and save a ton of work.
  2. I looked at the rules and everything seems legal to me. The Concussion in your math benefits from 'can see the target' but you could do all of this without LOS to the strike point, you'd just lose the +1.
  3. Good catch Krugerannd, I stand corrected. 🙂
  4. I read the rules for APA, External APA, and the Errata for both and I saw nothing to suggest that infantry don't benefit from the APA bonus. Where did you come by this understanding...?
  5. Assuming infantry are a good choice for your force and you have the points then I think its a great idea. What external APA?
  6. Something a little different, a friend of mine asked if he could use my minis in a photo shoot. Turns out, space beer is a thing. Check them out on Instagram if you like. https://www.instagram.com/p/CTNKRtolYFe/?utm_medium=copy_link
  7. Remember that ODST units are assigned their own specific card in the draw deck that determines when they can come in so you aren't completely in control of when they appear. They also cannot activate on the turn they come in, can't deploy within 12" of an enemy, and each model scatters. Still a powerful choice but considering the enemy force won't have much else to shoot at that turn of inactivity is going to be busy. Ideally, you'd draw their card at or near the end of the turn, deploy them, and then get first activation next turn thus kind of eliminating the no activation on turn of deployment drawback. As an opponent, I'd never want to use my recon ability to push your 'ODST' card to the bottom of the deck as this is exactly what you want. If you got lucky and got ODST deployment at the end of a turn and then drew your activation at the start of the next turn I'd use my recon ability to push your activation card to the bottom in the hopes of getting to activate before the ODST squad. That many points in ODST is going to be nasty no matter what your opponent does. Enjoy! 🙂
  8. My thoughts on this list vary on the way you plan to use it. As a slow grow, pick up game list this looks like a lot of fun. - The Centurions and the Crusader pack an enormous punch in their PBGs. Your attack squad's two sources of EST mean that your enemy really has to focus their fire to remove your ability to share Target Locks. Which is really good because you want those Centurions moving and shooting not 'Target Locking'. - Your Recon squad has a lot of ECM which means you can jam Target Locks and run Counter-ECM at the same time - very useful. I don't have a lot of experience with infantry in CAV but they can certainly move onto objectives and be hard to shift off. They are very good at CC and will make most CAVs think twice before getting into charge range of them. As an 'event' list, by which I think you mean tournament, the list isn't legal as infantry aren't allowed currently. - Looking at just the CAV part of it... that attack squad will murder anything it can bring those PBGs to bear on. However, Centurions are slow and their main weapons are short ranged. This means you're exposed to a lot of fire you can't really return very effectively the first 2 turns, possibly 3 turns. You might not get into PBG range without taking some serious damage. - The list construction rules for CAV tournaments limit the kind of lists you can run - assuming you're playing to win. The hard limit of 12 models max at 4500 points means your average model cost is 375 points. This list has 1253 points left over after paying for that attack squad. That leaves 156 points as the average cost for your next 8 models. So, you're looking at your attack squad and something like 8 Sabres. - That is a playable list but I think it'll get taken apart by something with a better 'Gun Density'. I think for 4500 points you can make a list that brings more guns to the table that can engage the enemy at longer ranges. This hypothetical enemy force will put out more damage than yours in the first and second turn for sure - possibly the third turn too depending on terrain, tactics, and dice. You'll need to play catch up in the third turn and beyond. It can work, if you get through the first three turns mostly unscathed you will BLOW STUFF UP! 🙂 Just my 2 cents. I'm excited to hear how it works for you guys, please share!
  9. (cross post from FB group) CAV's have high tech digital camo - essentially LCD paint. I figure buildings have, essentially, digital billboards built into them. What better place for an advertiser or hacker to promote their favorite show? Some CAV terrain I'm working on.
  10. A slight left hand turn from our traditional route on the show. 🙂 8pm CST on https://www.twitch.tv/talongamesonline
  11. ODST applies to only CAVs and infantry and deploying them uses both of their actions.
  12. You can't move the turn you deploy with ODST? Also, don't you have to be 12" away from enemy models? This is all from memory so correct me please. 😁
  13. Working on some CAV terrain tonight on the Talon Games Twitch channel. Join me at 8pm CST. https://www.twitch.tv/talongamesonline/v/1113565133?sr=a&t=236s
  14. Finished my slow grow league force! (Drum Roll....) The 5th Light Mechanized Battalion -aka the LiMons. A Templar free company currently working a 'planetary security' contract in Almirithil space. Their leader is Alejandro "Spryte" Limon a veteran pilot who only recently took command. The previous commander was lost in a 'training accident' during a 'simulated' Rach raid. The LiMons made good their repairs and replacements after their recent 'training exercise' and are excited for another crack at the... simulation.
  15. Still have edge highlighting and decals to do but getting close on my flight squad.
  16. I don't think we have BBCode enabled, so I had to add this as an image. I'll talk to @CAVBOSS and see if we can get it turned on - or he can show me how to activate it. 🙂
  17. Got the greens laid down. Need to let the paint cure so I can mask off the green parts and airbrush the yellow.
  18. My wife made the comment that they reminded her of Sprite. Now I need to work the word Limon into their name. 5th Light Mechanized Onslaught - The LiMons?
  19. @Goodtobetheking, honestly I'm not sure what @CAVBOSS plans for the new rules are. Ask him yourself Wednesday night on Twitch...? 🤩
  20. Join me tonight at 8pm CST on Twitch @ https://www.twitch.tv/talongamesonline We're in the final stretch for our Slow Grow league in Tulsa. I'm working on a pair of Crossbows for my flight squad!
  21. Welcome to the game, super glad to hear from you! The damage in CAV isn't equal to the number of success the attack roll exceeds the defense numbers. instead, that value (called an MoS - Margin of Success) is cross referenced to the damage table. Most results yield 1-3 points of damage. @CAVBOSS is working on streamlining the rules for an update. FYI, he also streams on Twitch Wednesday nights at 8pm CST where he will answer most any question. Last week he talked a lot about upcoming rule changes.

  22. Started work on my last squad for the Slow Grow league. Airbrushing the color white is a humbling experience. 🤬
  23. Still have 2 Crossbows to paint but here is my progress so far on my Templar Free Company - whose name eludes me.
