C3V Public Announcements Thread
This is where you can go to get started with C3V (Classic Customs Creators of Valhalla).
This thread lists all the units C3V has released: C3V Books of Index.

C3V brings you its first Special Release, otherwise known as:

Awakened Forest

Special Release 1

This one's been a long time coming, but we trust that it's worth the wait. Rather than waiting to fit this release into one of our traditional waves, we thought we would get it out to you all at once!

Wildwood Monarch - Ullar
Wildwood Sentinel - Ullar
Wildwood Runner - Ullar


Wildwood Monarch

The concentrated essence of the forest, a living embodiment of nature, the Wildwood Monarch does two things well. Firstly, it is always growing, birthing smaller Wildwood seedlings all around itself. Secondly, it is a fierce protector of the forest, hitting hard with its vine-covered limbs. The Awakened Forest flows through the Monarch's very being, for the Monarch is its center, its heart, its trunk.

The figure used for this unit is a D&D Miniatures figure from the Unhallowed set. Its name is Stormrage Shambler.

Wildwood Sentinel

The Wildwood Sentinels of the Awakened Forest are a curious group. Slow, for sure, but solid and dangerous up close. And if their Monarch is cut down, watch for one of them to contort its living body, growing in size and sprouting forth green tendrils. For the forest must live on, and so one of these woodland guardians must become the Monarch.

The figure used for this unit is a D&D Miniatures figure from the Night Below set. Its name is Verdant Reaver.

Wildwood Runner

By Wildwood standards, these seedlings are lightning fast. But these Runners are dangerous for more than their speed. Hardy and tenacious, these Runners can often survive long enough to replace a fallen Sentinel, doubling in size and in power. The Monarch may be the trunk, but it is the Runners that make enemies of the Awakened Forest quake in fear.

The figure used for this unit is a D&D Miniatures figure from the War of the Dragon Queen set. Its name is Twig Blight.

Spoiler Alert!


Our next wave is coming soon. Here's some of what to expect:

All of you saw them. Swimming, squirming, maggot-like, at the edges of your vision. You punch through reality, you pierce the veil, you rend the universe asunder to pull your little toy soldiers from across the planes of existence....you didn't think you were unnoticed, did you? The arrogance. To think you could pluck pieces from the foundations of other worlds and think those spasming, grasping tendrils reaching for you from the black suns between time and space were merely a vision. The alternative was too horrible to contemplate, wasn't it?

Jandar, Vydar, Utgar....for all your posturing, for all your playing as gods and faux-omniscience, you put on blinders. You reached into the Wellsprings and you pulled what you thought was yours from the ether and dared not turn your head. You knew to look to your left or right was madness.

Madness. I lived in madness. Thrived in it. Only I, Valkrill, was mad enough to look, to turn my head and look at those shapes in the dark...and extend my hand.

None of you know what's coming. None of you.

- Letter from Valkrill to the other six Generals. Context unknown.

We in the C3V know that it's a crazy time in this world, and we hope that you're happy and healthy wherever you are. We hope you take some time to try out this new faction, and keep helping us playtest as we get more releases ready. We've got Demons and Cultists and Lovecraft stuff coming, as well as more historical units, fantasy mainstays, and creepy crawlies. We're coming up on 10 years of C3V, and we hope to keep going for many more years (and your playtesting helps!).

Happy 'Scaping,

C3V Artist and Admin

What a nice faction! I'm thinking of running one Monarch, two sentinels, and two runners. Should I add more runners or is it not necessary?

I’d suggest having 4 runners.

Getting a good balance of units is very important for the Wildwoods. 1/2/2 is a good mix for a low-point game. If you have more points remaining, fill them with more Wildwoods. They need what numbers they can get.

Yup! By my calculation, if I remember correctly, our anniversary is in November. I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks, FS!

Intriguing concept. I feel like I need to play against someone who already knows how the powers work once just to get the hang of growing the units.

So you can activate all 3 units in a turn, and before the round starts you can upgrade your small and medium Wildroots and/or place a new small Wildroot.
