Manchu-

Those bases look good for the scale of the models you have. 

For me personally, I think I would want to multi-base smaller scale tanks and infantry.  So a Heavy Cavalry element would be 3 tanks or so instead of one.  Makes it look more like an army supporting a mech to me.  However, I do not think the CAV rules are NOT scaled to support that approach, so why would the models? 

On the down side, I think my approach would look more like Epic though.  The mechs would be huge compared to the tanks and such.  That may not to be everyone's taste and I can appreciate a different approach to it.   

I can not wait to see them get painted.  This thread has really helped me visualize the CAV models.
 Great progress so far.

That would be really awesome, E. If I were to go that route of multi-basing, Iíd use 6mm at the largest. Not sure which models Iíd use to convey the relatively gigantic mechs, however, as so many models are sort of scale-locked by things like cockpits. While the main reason I settled on 10mm was simply the generous affordability/quality ratio of of CAV models, I also just really love that 10mm marries up so beautifully to Horizon Wars in terms of hitting that sweet spot between strategic and tactical gaming. The 1:1 scale of model representation (other than with infantry) really helps me that the action is more exciting, when it comes to narrative-focused miniatures gaming.

Here is a WIP shot of the Blue Team mechs. Very simple, very blue. I am unsure if I want to use a secondary/trim color but if Idid it would probably be light gray. If I only had mechs to paint (to the tune of 5-7 on each side) I might just go for it but each team also has conventional forces to paint.

I have a pdf of Horizon Wars, which I'm not sure where it came from. I'm sure it's an official version, as the pages don't look scanned in, so I probably bought it that way. If it's OOP in print form, it might be available in pdf form?
