Alternate Nova Cat arms?
« on: 08 June 2016, 23:18:31 »
Anyone have any leads on alternate Nova Cat arms?

I picked one up and would love to be able to field the A or B variant, but it doesn't seem like IWM has sculpted those arms yet.

Whomever said violence isn't a solution obviously wasn't using enough.

I haven't done anything with them yet, but I bought a set of Turkina Arms and a set of Battle Cobra Arms to convert one of mine into the 'A'.
I haven't even looked at the parts to see which would work better.

If Reaper was still selling bits in their webstore I would just recommend the arm sprue from the Sultan CAV for the 'A' and two of the missile launcher arms from the Gnomic CAV for whichever variant has the LRM overdose. The Gnomic was one of the designs that got "Boned" in the CAV: SO kickstarter, but I have no idea when it will be available to purchase.

I think the Nova need to be resculpted in a scale like the new version of Blood Asp,and than from this scale it would be nice to see those arms variants that said I never heard anything about that and the actual mini is out of scale if comparate with othe hypotheticalr lance mate actually available.

I ordered a bunch of Grigori missile packs from the IWM scrapyard, and used those for my Cat B. I'll post pics whenever the danged thing gets painted.

A few years about, someone made a killer Novacat AltCon with kitbashed arms.
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Are you asking about the Reaper launchers?
Unfortunately, right now the only way to get them is to buy the whole CAV.
They've been saying they'll "fix" the CAV section of the store for a few years now, but they recently stopped selling all bits.
They're supposed to come back when the webstore gets revamped SOONTM.

I think I saw on their forums that it will be sometime in July when they start putting the Bones CAV models in the store, but I have no idea when the Gnomic will be added. They tend to add 50-ish items to the store at a time after fulfilling a Kickstarter.

Yeah, I was, I looked for the Gnomic, but it didn't have the same pods Siberian troll posted...
