blast_shark Customs Thread (Ullar Soulborgs) 9/17/2021

Welcome to my customs thread!

My primary sources of inspiration for these cards are videos by Nidar Singh Nihag on Sanatan Shastarvidiya (The Timeless Science of Weapons) and various stories of Sikh warriors. Simply put, the philosophy of shastarvidiya is to move without telegraphing, gain superior positioning, and best your opponent before they have time to react.

Obviously, it is much more complicated than that. Here is Nidar Singh if you're interested and also Michael J White talking about the same concepts.

Unique Melee Hero: Ullar Soulborg
Spoiler Alert!


Unique Melee Squad: Ullar Soulborgs (3 figure squad)
Spoiler Alert!


Unique Ranged Hero: Ullar Soulborg
Spoiler Alert!


Common Ranged Squad: Ullar Soulborgs (4 figure squad)
Spoiler Alert!


My imagination for these figures is something like Sicarian Ruststalkers for the melee units and Skitarii Rangers for the ranged units (Colored green/brass for Ullar)
Of course, those wouldn't be acceptable for C3V/SoV customs because they're unpainted/assembly required models. I'll keep an eye out for prepainted things that could work for them as I playtest.

Let me know what your initial thoughts are on them! I'd love to hear feedback if you decide to playtest them yourself)

Re: blast_shark Customs Thread (Ullar Soulborgs) 9/17/2021

I like the designs you are playing with. The "Tranquil" personality for a Soulborg is super cool imagery, and I dig where you're getting your inspiration from.

The possibility to bond with 'any' Soulborg hero via Tranquil Hardwiring is extremely scary due to Major Q9. Though I do like the idea and wish there were a few more Parmenio-like personality changing characters. You could limit it to small and medium. Tranquil Attack Aura I would consider making a melee attack aura if it affecting ranged is too much on other ranged figures/squads. But creating for intention of use within the faction is totally fine given the Skirmishers 1A. It does make a bit more sense with the Redundant targeting systems on the skirmishers. Advance Under Pressure Protocol is unique and reminisces other swarming abilities like the red ants mob attack, but with ranged figures interestingly and prevents it's use for unfun kiting.

Those figures look pretty good for what you're going for. I can't think of any others that could fit this type of soulborg. Though there are a lot more figures out I have no idea about. Don't worry about your customs being C3V/SoV acceptable. Make them for yourself and as a gift to be shared.
And hey, it isn't too uncommon I don't think that C3V looks over some ideas by custom creators and integrates them into their designs. If you are really want to design towards SoV, keep an eye out for other figures that fit your fancy and have an idea of what you want to bring with the design/s. Your ideas can be reinterpreted for other minis and with the spectrum of shastarvidiya, that could go many places. In order to stand a chance in SoV it has to bring something somewhat 'substantial', if that's the right word, to the table of all that already is.

Would certainly like to see some more.
And some cards ... I'm a sucker for cards. If you ever need some art done for them, I can help you out with that.

sideafterthoughts:
Line Breakers seem pretty overpriced to me, unless it is to compensate for their synergies?
Also, the snipers with their low def/atk don't strike me as much as being the precise Tranquil personality. Their single target use can be decent, but would be rather bad against squads. I think 65 points could be okay for them as they are.
