Re: Suggestions for the C3V

I very much want that bear to be the Aquilla flagbearer. Whether it's a 3D print or a sticker, Hrognak provides precedent for a figure needing a mod to be inducted into the C3V. Not only that, but if the figure is expensive there is a perfect proxy available on thingiverse:

Oh that's easy. They're familiars. Or at least that's my very original, never before conceived, idea. But who knows if that'll ever happen.
It'd be cool to see Brandis Skyhunter get some synergy going. He needs a pet or something since no one else will hang out with half-elves.
It is my opinion, that "Half Elf" should have come with a power that allowed him to be both Elf and Human Simultaneously for any relevant powers. But that's just me. I have no idea if anyone else feels this way or not.

As for whether we will do anything with Half Elves; Fantasy figures are so common, that we try to put our efforts towards almost anything else. Unless we feel that we can do something really interesting with a figure/design, or fill some obvious hole in the lore/synergy, we generally avoid it. It will probably happen eventually, but eventually is probably years away.

Hrognak is a special case, where we had a C3V member who was willing to hand paint and prep several hundred figures. While it does open the possibility, it also requires that someone be willing to put all of that work in. We are a volunteer group, and everything we do is done in the free time we happen to have. Prepping several hundred figures for something like this requires a lot of that free time and effort. Whoever does that has to choose to do that over anything else the C3V might need, and anything else they might want to do in their own life outside of HeroScape and the C3V. That's not even touching the monetary barrier of needing to buy enough figures and supplies, and then actually finding the time to modify them. I'm not saying it can't happen, but I am saying it's not as easy as you might be thinking it is.

I think it'd be a good flagbearer. I don't think trying to repeat the Hrognak approach is a good idea, however.

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

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Oh absolutely! This would not be an imposition like Hrognak (and that C3V member was incredibly gracious to donate his time - I wasn't really into C3V then, don't know who it was). But this modification would not require that kind of time (or really any time) from someone.

This would be mostly printing stickers. If you print a sticker of a flag in a diamond shape, you can fold it around the pole so that it makes a triangle with the design on both sides, like this:

It could be that not everyone has a way to print stickers out (although just about anyone can run to a FedEx to do it) and someone volunteers to print several sheets worth and sell them for a dollar or two... but it would not be a 2nd Hrognak. And again, thanks so much to the person who did that Hrognak project.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Seems like an ideal opportunity that may or may not come around again. Would be nice to see the flagbearers completed.

Customs are for home use and enjoyment first and foremost.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Just going to point out that if we were go this route, literally any Spear, Pole, or long protruding thing on a figure, could be converted into a flag.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Yes. And a Dwarf riding a bear is a particularly good option within that category.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

What particularly nice about an option like this, is that the figure would also work just fine without the printed flag. It's something that can be added, but is not necessary--the figure would still clearly look like a significant leader, with or without a printed flag.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

After thinking about it, I don't think the miniature is right for VC. Probably not for a flag "bearer" either lol. There isn't exactly a rush or pressure to complete the flag cycle so if this does wind up being used by VC maybe it's just better to make a mounted dwarf champion of some type similar to Hrognak (mounted and unmounted because the figure exists both ways I think?).

Possibility that the bear might not fit on a peanut or there might be availability issues as well. Maybe a unit with a flag will come along in some other form that'd be better.
