Re: Suggestions for the C3V

I recently found this kit of Russian WWII soldiers while looking for a sculpt for a personal custom. If you're willing to relax the "official" sculpt rules as done for the Rackham units, $29.99 buys five three-man Common Squads, two copies of an Uncommon Hero, and three Unique Heroes. However, further investigation shows that the sculpts are 1 inch/23.4 mm tall, so I'm not sure how well they would fit classic 'Scape's scale.

Sculpts like Otonashi are in that size range, so it's not unprecedented.

Well, that's encouraging. A set of Medium 4's sounds perfectly doable; I think C3V's Vietnam War soldiers have that height, too, so the size shouldn't clash with the theme.

I have seen minis like this in the past at places like Hobby Lobby, they look really off next to Heroscape minis. Heroscape is in heroic scale more or less, so it's around 28/32mm scale. Best case scenario for these then is that they're 5mm short, that's assuming Heroscape minis are more on the 28mm side of 28-32mm. It could be more like 9mm.

I do really want to see more historical units in the customs projects though. Anything from the US Civil War to modern soldiers would be awesome to see.

I am surprised that the figures would look so jarring. D&D minis use a smaller scale, and I've never noticed any major issues with those in comparison to classic Heroscape units. That's definitely a shame, though; it's hard to find properly proportioned sculpts for military units, so this would have been a nice opportunity.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

For some reason, Saturday's announcement of the C3V's use of the Return of the Runelords set really got my creative juices flowing. As a result, I would like to suggest considering the following thematic angles and personages for the appropriate figures from that set.

Alaznist #01:
Boudica Boudica
(redheaded warrior queen; Roman-era British folk hero).
Belimarius #02: Elizabeth Báthory (Hungarian countess, serial killer, and alleged vampire)
Karzoug #03: Durgeth high priest (the sculpt has the right sickly skin and dark hair, and the skin ornamentation, clawed hand, and burning scepter convey a monstrous shaman theme).
Xanderghul #06: / Babylonian warlord/king (reliable details on the Middle Babylonian Period are limited; moreover, if you trust Wikipedia, peacocks, whose feathers appear on the sculpt, were associated with royalty in Babylon. This is a carte-blanche opportunity to make a historical unit from an era and location untouched by both Classic 'Scape and VC).

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Back in Wave 15, the C3V utilized the "Pathfinder Battles: Beginner Box" miniatures for Martial La Hire, Myrddin, Arashara Goshiri, and Elaria the Pale. Apparently, the characters these minis embody are a big deal in Pathfinder lore. While scrolling through minisgalery.com I came across other sculpts for these characters.

The Beginner Box Heroes was released in 2011.


The Iconic Heroes Boxed Sets I (La Hire) and II (the others) were released in early 2015 and unfortunately are unusable since they aren't readily available.


The Iconic Heroes Evolved box, released in 2019, is decently available and has sculpts for all but Myrddin. It also contains 3 other minis that look pretty cool. 2 of which obviously fit into existing factions. This box is much more readily available.



I propose this Iconic Heroes Evolved box for the potential that more heroes than just Drake and Raelin (and to a lesser extent, Hrognak) get updated, more powerful, and more anachronistic from their time in Valhalla.

I'm going to give these V2s a shot over in my customs thread but I figured this would be a better way to make it real.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

The idea was discussed when I was still an active member, but never took off for reasons I can't recall. Maybe it will be revisited, who knows

The biggest problem with the idea is that the figures are all pretty fantasy--La Hire and Arashara were stretched as historical figures, but "medium unique heroes" are still an overdone area in custom-land and C3V tries to steer away from them unless the ideas really stand out.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: Suggestions for the C3V

Could they be used as alternate sculpts?
