With onslaught 2 coming soon and the influx of new Cthulhu Wars players I thought it would be useful to have an overall list of all the variant factions that have been created here on BGG. I will try to keep this list updated as new factions emerge. Currently the list is sorted chronologically with the newest factions at the top of the list.

Please don't post new faction ideas in this thread. Instead create a new thread and post the link here and I will update the list as needed. However if anyone play tests one of the factions then feel free to provide any thoughts about overall faction balance, etc.

For those of you who are not familiar the Cthulhu Wars compendium is a great resource for faction and variant info.
Cthulhu Wars Compendium

Also there is a great article with tips for creating new custom factions here.

If there is enough interest I can also post a list compiling other player created variants for CW.

Heads up that False Throne was renamed to Crippled Eye, though I forgot to update the title of the thread.

Awesome! Bookmarked and tipped.

This could be an amazing Geeklist. That way it wouldn't get lost in the forums.

Although I have been lurking on BGG for years this is the game that finally forced me to create an account about a year or so ago so I could throw my two cents at the community. I've never actually made a geeklist and it seems that the forums here don't have sticky posts. I may start looking into it.

Not to mention there's a Custom Faction Template I threw up in the 'Files' section that lets you create your own official-looking faction cards with a bit of photoshoppy magic:

This is a great idea. I feel like we need to either add this list to the wiki, or keep bumping it up. I didn't even know it existed until now.

I try to keep it up to date but sometimes stuff gets in the way and I don't notice new posts for a week or so. Eventually I want to make a listing of all the custom CW content.

Have you considered creating a custom faction section for the wiki?

Currently I am working on compiling lists of all custom Cthulhu Wars Variants on BGG. I have seen in other places on BGG custom wikis tracking the variants and homebrew materials for the game and at some point I would like to create something like that.

After that I may look into adding the info to the strategy wiki, people could comment about which factions and variants they have tried and which seem over or under powered. Just swamped with work right now and with the impending OS2 arrival I have a feeling I will be too busy playing for a while to post

How would one submit their ideas to be listed? I have a thread with two faction ideas on it, and I'm interested in having them listed here if that's okay.

Post a link in a comment and I'll add it next time I'm online. Usually pretty good about noticing new faction variants on the forums though. I've already added yours at the top of the list.

Added no less than 17 new factions to the list in the last week or so. I blame the Contest of a Thousand Forms goo
