Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Hey gang,

I've been perusing for a while trying to find a potential model for an Aquilla flag bearer and I may have found it. Of course, we would need to collaborate and make a 3D print for the flag itself to be glued onto the handle of the sword.

Model name is D&D mini CRAG UNGART (Dwarf Fighter) SKT Dungeons & Dragons Pathfinder Miniature.

Availability is looking to be at least 150, with a price point of around $2.
In addition, there is also a translucent model available for painting.

I very much agree that this should be an Aquilla flagbearer!


1) It's a dwarf and I personally associate dwarfs with Aquilla.
2) It feels very regal like a flagbearer should be.
3) The gold fits in with Aquilla's secondary color.
4) I like the idea of the flag being attached to the hilt of a sword.
5) It currently is available in large supply for cheap.
6) The banner would be customized so the design team can literally start from scratch and pick all aspects of the banner instead of being stuck with a base color.


But I do think it poses a few problems:


1) The flag part would need to be printed and affixed, which means people would need a 3D printer to get the "full" model. This can be fixed by some of the more prominent 3D printers in the community stepping up and offering flags or minis with flags for a fair price. (I was reminded that the mounted Hrognak had 3D printing, so this is less of a point.)
2) The location of the flag would have to be consistent, as would coloring and such, but color can be easily figured out if the whole flag is made to be one color, and the emblem is a sticker.
3) We would also need to print out a sticker, but Gothlok had the same "problem" so I am just including this for completeness.


Overall, I think it's a good mini to use.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Why would the flag have to be 3D printed? Seems like it could just as easily be a sticker that folds over on itself to make a flag. I'm thinking Battle Masters style.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

There's a lot of internal debate about whether the Aquilla Flag bearer should be a dwarf, or one of the other Aquilla specific factions. Mariedians, Native Americans, and Wolves, are also valid options. And this isn't the first dwarf figure that has been suggested, along with the idea to 3D print a flag. The consensus has been that if we are going to add a flag to a figure, we should find a really good figure for that purpose, and not just take whatever figure happens to be available.

I'm partial to Mariedians, and Wolves myself. Though if a really fitting figure for the other 2 were found, I'd be happy to see that too.

My brain went to 3D printing first, just to stay synonymous with the other flag bearers.

Honestly, Dwarf was the first species that I thought of. Between Mok, Darrak, Migol, Mogrimm, Axegrinders, and Shieldsmiths, it's the most iconic in my mind. The Varks are becoming difficult to obtain, the Natives would be an awesome idea especially if there were more Native-themed units, and Maridians could be fun as well I suppose. Just spitballing- I'll keep my eyes peeled for other potential models!

Thanks for the feedback guys

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

I have no idea if there is a miniature out there of a Knight with a Hammer, but I have this cool idea that I think would make a good figure.

Sir Hallas. Basically, he's like a storm knight with a lightning special attack, maybe like a mini melee Quahon. Ullar faction (more on this later), Human Champion, to bond with KoW, but maybe either make the special attack weaker (to balance that KoW are a really good squad to bond with) or make him not Valiant, so that he's not a part of 4thMass strategies.

Why do I think the game could use him? Well, I think the game needs more knight-type heroes, and while Hawthorne is a cool departure from Jandar, I think Ullar is also a faction that supports medieval-european fantasy as a theme for its heroes. This also would mean if he's good with the knights, he's excluded from formats like General Wars. But, his inclusion would give KoW armies access to a special-attacker, something they have always lacked.

If you're going to make Thor, wouldn't he make more sense as a Viking?

Something that didn't occur to me right away, even after I joined the C3V, is that the C3V is full of people who all have diverse but amazing ideas, and all of them are trying to make their own ideas a reality. At any given time, there's a minimum of 10 different ideas being brainstormed, and 20 other different ideas being actively worked on in some capacity. Even with all of that, there are still ideas that we just don't have a good mini for, or that doesn't capture the interest of the rest of the team. For every design idea that we actually develope into a full release, there's easily 5 - 10 others that we just don't end up using. We might borrow from those ideas in the future, but we also might not. What I'm trying to say is, if you want to see something, the best way to make sure that happens, is to design it yourself, playtest it, and submit it to the SoV. I've done it, and several other C3V members have as well. Sometimes your vision isn't shared by others, and it's best to just do it yourself. The longer I'm in the C3V, the more I really appreciate that the SoV is available, because some ideas would never make it through the C3V in the same form.

Sellhammers, though?

Hammer + Lightning = Thor is going to be a tough aesthetic to get past, IMO.

There's no need to get past it. I don't care if it's similar to Thor, just like Green Arrow and Hawkeye are similar, there is nothing which says they can't both exist. Mimring is similar to every dragon ever. Syvarris is similar to Legolas. The Krav Maga are similar to MIB/Matrix. I could go on.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

"Archer" and "Dragon" are much more common archetypes than "Hammer wielding thunder bringer."
