C3V Highlight May 22nd 2011

The fight For Valhalla is getting even closer to your tabletop battlefield ...

With all new figures ranging from Vampire to Marro, your battle for Valhalla just got 100% more awesome. This week you'll be seeing two of the most creative units in all of C3V Heroscape.

Look out, Zetacron ... you're not the only Omnicron Hero any more.

"Target acquired. Units 3 through 5, fire."

"Unit 3: firing."

"Unit 4: firing."

"Unit 5: firing."

"Target neutralized. Acquiring target. Units 1 and 2, advance."

"Unit 1: en route."

"Uu-uuuuunnnit-t-t-t-t 2: rerereporting malffffffunction. Servos A12-Y89 offli-li-line."

"Unit 9, fall back. Secure or salvage Unit 2."

"Unit 9: acknowledged. Secure or salvage."

This all transpired in the space of seconds, a series of electronic messages sent back and forth along the Soulborg chain of command. Omegacron had no "eyes," no visual receptors with which to perceive the world around him. Yet to him, the battlefield was alive.

In his internal network were a thousand scattered dots of light, each one representing a life-form tagged and tracked by the vast network of Soulborgs around him. In his electronic brain, he held his "hands" above the field, watching the delicate dance of lights unfold beneath him. Even though Soulborgs were not typically prone to self-reflection or imagination, he had a very clear internal picture of himself. Something deep in his programming, in the electronic instinct printed into his processors, was a man. Slim, humanoid, with glasses. He knew deep down the image of the man was his line's programmer, his....father, in a way. Most likely he had died more than a hundred years ago. But this man whom he'd never known was his only reference to how a person looked, so he thought of himself like that. His "clothes" were black, and lit with blue stripes.

Below him, the points of light scurried around like so many ants, the blue ones at his beck and call, the red ones slowly being snuffed out. He waved his hand, and a dozen Repulsors broke off and surrounded a larger point of light. From their radar reports, he knew it was a Deathstalker. With the flick of his wrist, exact positioning data was downloaded, streamed into the nearest Sniper's head. Without turning his head, the Sniper's arm moved to the exact vector required and, with microsecond precision, pulled the trigger. The Deathstalker's light was snuffed; blue lights scattered from its location towards the next target. Omegacron nodded, his hands delicately moving over the grand tapestry, total and absolute knowledge at his command.

The tapestry rippled. Omegacron blinked, checking his receptors. They were fully functional. At the very corner, from the east, came a wave, slowly tearing up his tapestry, his masterpiece, his work, replacing it with a mass of red, glowing stripes.

Nicholas Esenwein arrives from Feylund, eager to challenge his uncle for the vampiric throne ...


Nicholas' whispered call echoed in the hallway, pulling Iskra from the moonlit view of Feylund. Nicholas appeared uncharacteristically focussed, but she raised a disapproving eyebrow at him nonetheless. Nicholas advanced down the corridor, a sinister smile creeping across his face.

"Cockiness is unbecoming in a noble," Iskra said bluntly, and turned back to the balcony. She heard Nicholas' throaty chuckle and felt him slink up behind her; his arms crept around her midsection. He rested his chin in the hollow of her neck, silent.

"I want to show you something," Nicholas said after a moment. There was an earnest excitement in his voice that Iskra had not heard before. She hesitated, and he released her and floated up off the balcony, hovering in midair and extending his hand. Still that sinister smile.

"Come!" he said, his eyes pleading, eager to share something important. But what? Iskra cocked her head, suspicious. She had become used to his plans and schemes, his chronic deviousness. This, however, was almost too sincere for him, and it put her off guard.

"Tell me what it is first," she said. "Then I might follow you. Your recklessness has nearly destroyed us more than once."

Nicholas bared his fangs as his smile widened.

"It is ... our future."

Nice array of Omnicron tough guys!

"Secure or salvage."

Omegacron looks like he's made out of some sort of old Mechwarrior piece? Am I right?

quozl has been kind enough to create this thread, it should answer your questions about the miniatures being used in the upcoming Wave.

@Generalrolando - yes, it's an old Mechwarrior piece. You can find the exact one in quozl's thread that ZBeeblebrox's just linked to. Or just wait, and I'll show you one of mine in 13 days. I could even be convinced to trade you one.

Being a diehard Esenwein fan, I'm confused. This bio makes it seem like Iskra and Nicholas are lovers. But I'm pretty sure Iskra is Cyprien's daughter, and Cyprien sits on the throne. So am I wrong, or is the A Song of Ice and Fire?

@ Aqua

It has never been in print what the relationship is between the Esenweins, other than they are a "family" but in most Vampire lore, if you are part of a Vampire "family" it does not mean that you were related before you were vampire...it just mean you were turned by the same line of Vampires.

For instance, in the Twilight series...the childern of the doctor are not his real children, just people he tried to save and adopted.

The Twilight movies are not the only examples, Anee Rice novels, Lauren Hamilton, ect. All have this "Family" bond that is kept "in house".

"Look out Zetacron ... you're not the only Omnicron Hero any more." Just the only official one.
