Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Remember the discussion 18 months ago about an Aquilla Flag Bearer? I mentioned Gifted Vision's "Combat Clips" set, as available pre-painted Flags. Finally took pictures today. There's about a 1/2"-square area for a faction emblem to be placed on both flags, could be mass-printed on waterslide decal paper. The surfaces are wavy enough that using Micro Sol / Solvaset to ease the decal into the surface would be mandatory. It would have to be a Dwarf Flagbearer, 'cause each clip is five levels high from the base of the pole, and only a dwarf is short enough to not get in the way. Any dwarf, just pick some available sculpture...

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Our playgroup was discussing stats for a 5 point figure. We were thinking something like this:

"Mr. 5-Pointer"

1 life
5 move
1 range
1 attack
1 defense

when it dies, remove 1 wound marker from any other hero figure you control.

This actually brings up a really fascinating discussion about 5 point figures starting here.

I always felt like a Dwarf was the appropriate species for an Aquilla Flag Bearer anyway.

Indeed Dysole...that was a great conversation...really good points as to why we probably don't want a 5pt figure...and I'm okay with that.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Just makes want to do a 5 pointer for C3G now.

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

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

I actually have a 5 pointer squad somewhere...hold on! Let me dig.

Here it is...for 5 points.

Creepy Toads (common squad of 3)
Amphibians
Animals
Skittish
Small 1

Life 1
Move 3
Range 1
Attack 1
Defense 0

Slimey Creepyness 16 - When being attacked, roll a d20. On a 16 or higher the attacker is creeped out and will not complete the attack.

Leapfrog Movement - Instead of moving normally, Creepy Toads may leap onto friendly figures up to size 6 one hex away and then leap again up or down 6 more levels to the next adjacent hex.

It's an off-base squad but it's fun. I think I found a pack of 3 at a craft store and thought...really, that's just off-base...what the heck. I also have a squad of snapping turtle somewhere. Again, completely off-base but it's fun.
What do you think? Too strong for 5 points? Should it be a unique squad instead?

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.

I have not been in here in a long time, but this is a specific hole in Heroscape that has always bugged me. A few years back I had suggested that a member of this community who can sculpt design characters to fill specific niches in armies such as a Dwarven Aquilla flagbearer, but it wasn't too well received. At that time, I was thinking it would have to be out of something like Greensculpt or some other hard physical method, creating the problem of replicating it and getting it to the masses.

Since then, 3D modeling technology has become easily available, as well as high quality Resin 3D Printers. I have taught myself how to 3D sculpt, and have successfully sculpted some miniatures for another game (Dice Throne) in an unofficial capacity already. I also have a Resin 3D Printer to test the designs.

All of that being said, it has long been my dream to design a Dwarf Flag-Bearer for Aquilla, mimicking the proportional style of the Heroscape dwarves. If I were to do this, would this thread be the best place to help the Heroscape community have some say in the creation of such a miniature? Or would a custom designed miniature like that not meet the C3V Standards due to the necessity of printing and painting?

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

It's a complicated question. 3D printing opens up so many doors for filling out the missing areas adjancent to many beloved Heroscape figures, but it also crosses some bridges that frankly just haven't been crossed yet.

The largest obstacle is that Heroscape began and largely remains a pre-painted miniatures game. In the past VC has been reluctant to do miniatures that require painting, although Tyrian the Kyrie Warrior and Mad Dog Malone exist, and even in official Heroscape Sam Brown exists. My intuition is that producing and distributing the 3D printed miniatures would not be that hard. The designer could print large quantities of their design and distribute in the same method that C3V did Hrognak, and many others have 3D printers in the case the designer were to disappear. So painting the figure is probably the largest obstacle to designs only accessible through 3D printing; I just don't know how people would feel about the painting part.

I can say that personally, as an SoV judge, I would not let the fact that a miniature was 3D printed dissuade me from voting yes on a design. I would have to 3D print the miniature myself to make sure that it was high quality enough to stand with official Heroscape figures, but I believe that's possible with current 3D modeling and 3D printing technology. I do not know if other judges would feel the same way.

So, I guess what I would say is give it a try! Design a custom flagbearer dwarf model, solicit feedback on sculpt and design in the Pre-SoV thread, and see where things go. If you don't want to all of the designing and testing yourself, I'm confident many people there would be very excited to work on a design like this.
