This week I decided for a change of pace to work on some of the CAV Bones minis I got from the first CAV Kickstarter, and complete a company of Warden vehicles. These are being based up for the upcoming version of “Look, Sarge, No Charts: Near Future & Sci-Fi” rules we will begin working on soon. So, my company will consist of three 2-vehicle platoon bases, and a single-vehicle HQ base.
I prepped the vehicles in the usual way for Bones; soaking them in a bowl of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the laser in place with superglue on 6 of the vehicles, and on the 7th, HQ vehicle, I scratchbuilt a simple radar/communication unit to sit on the back using a piece of mini lego and a plastic gem.
I first sprayed the vehicles with Krylon Camouflage with Fusion, Ultra Flat “Woodland Light Green”. When dry, I glued 6 of them onto 1.5" x 3" bases, and the HQ onto a 1.5" square base. I then painted the big lasers on back with Crafter’s Acrylic “Tropical Blue”; and when dry, I gave the all the vehicles a wash with Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash using a wet brush.
