Even with the Combat Patrol(TM) play test day yesterday, I managed to complete my 4th Reaper CAV tank battalion, this time heavy tanks. From previous posts, you know that I am painting each battalion in different camouflage schemes to make them easier to distinguish on the gaming table. The first three were in a modern, realistic camouflage pattern. I decided to be a little more outlandish with this battalion.
Of course, this could be a very realistic camouflage scheme on a different planet.
After completing this battalion, I felt like I should make the battalion HQ more distinguishable. If you look at the top image, you see that the company and battalion HQ bases each consist of a single vehicle on the same sized base. I decided the easier way to distinguish the battalion HQ bases was to put a small guidon on the battalion HQ vehicle.
The flags are removable to make the bases easier to store.
Now, I need to get started on all the infantry while I await the few missing vehicles from the CAV Kickstarter to arrive…
