    120 KB BRIKWARS THREAD 2: THE SAGA OF HARPOON JONES Urist 05/17/10(Mon)16:31 No.9878921  

    I wanna hear about your greats moments, those times you told the odds to fuck off and go home because they had no place there with you.

    I want your favorite units, the most dashing heroes, the massive rolling death machines that have yet to taste defeat, that terrible thing that you have yet to unleash upon the unsuspecting world.

    I want you to regale me with tales of battle, conflicts that shook the very foundations of the world, the fights that left red transparent swaths across uncounted floors and kitchen tables.

    I wish to hear of your greatest strategies and tactics, how you run circles around the other guy then leave him too dizzy to realize he's dead.

    Let me hear your tales of gore and glory /tg/.

    Didn't realize the old one was autosaging. REPOASTAN!

    Sorry about the delay, refreshed the thread to see my lone aquanaut just got fucking knighted by /tg/, and had to edit appropriately.
    With the shield jedi nearly knocking at their door, aerial bombardment from afar, and their fearless leader incommunicado and presumed dead, things turn dire in the bikini bottom bunker. The gunners, still firing mindlessly, can't seem to do anything more than slow down the force-powered wall of steel, and the parts scattered about the floor are only meant for repairs, not base construction, even if they had the time. Puff grimly hands her wrench to Patrick, telling him to do what he can to stop the vile surface dwellers... and walks toward the door, vest detonator in hand. Patrick, deafened by gunfire and still in shock from his earlier ejection, begins cobbling together something clawed and vicious.
    Back at aquanaut base, Controller Chuck pulls the trigger on another cannon blast, AND HITS. No casualties, but a huge chunk of wall not one inch from the east gunner goes flying. Harpoon Jones, hands shaking, drags the squishy mass of spongebob's corpse out of the pilot's seat, tossing it aside like a ragdoll. Wiping the slime off of his hands, he settles in, kicking it into reverse and sliding through the hole in the rubble the rocket plow had left earlier. Grinning viciously, Anakin inches ever closer to the west gunner. Just a few more steps, and he can just melt the fucker's face off. Just a few more... WHY IS THAT HATCH OPENING?

    My brother in law lets out another falsetto shriek.
    Ms. Puff, laden with red blocks and studs, moves her 5", coming as close to Anakin as she can, and detonates.
    I won't quote the dice here, but with a 2" blast radius, and 5 separate bombs, well, you get the picture.

    Of course. I'd feel like a jerk if I didn't, now. Will arrive with next post.

    What jihadi Puff didn't intend was the size of her blast being as close to bikini bottom bunker as it was. Sure, she took out the almighty Anakin, along with herself, but that west gunner... lets just say a pile of ammunition doesn't always fare well in a giant flaming explosion. Neither does the sentient anemone sitting on top of it. With that, the remains of our sides were even, or at least as even as they could be. Controller Chuck, lining up a new shot in the Aquabase, Harpoon Jones, behind the wheel of an enemy vehicle, Patrick Star, ratcheting together god knows what behind closed doors, and a slackjawed anemone soldier, aghast at what had just happened to his brother. He turns his turret, refusing to slack in his duty, despite his loss. Off in the distance, a shape moves. The battletank! Did his fearless leader survive?!
    Fuck no.
    Harpoon Jones, all gritted teeth and adrenaline, has his foot to the floorboard, driving straight at the turret window.
    Another shot from Commander Chuck takes out a set of bricks half an inch from the turret, as the mounted chaingun roars back to life, firing at the commandeered vehicle. Behind the gunner, sparks fly as Patrick welds together the finishing touches on his brutal handiwork.

    Eh, I think we've had quite enough of those threads already.

    So what the hell IS brickwarz? The idea of using Legos to make a wide variety of mini's suitable for just about any game is a nice one; so I'm kind of curios as to a ruleset that is obstinately linked to legos in an integral fashion, as opposed to "let's play 40k/Btech with lego-fashioned minis."

    The rules are very very scalable too. Lots of "optional this" "variant rule that", so depending on your tastes you could run as warhammer-lite, or as a hyper-detailed nightmare of suppression counters and communication breakdowns.

    It's a Lego game about building huge shit from Lego and having it battle other huge shit within a tabletop system. Basically don't even try with small units. Bigger = Better in this system.

    In fact, in the 2001 ruleset (which is 2005 minus any streamlining or sanity), you did have rules for building stuff in-game. Mechanics could roll a D6-3 when near a pile of scrap; multiply the result by 15 and you had that many seconds to turn that pile of scrap into a vehicle. Medics could take broken limbs from destroyed/wounded troopers and make Frankenstein monsters from them. The magic supplement was insane too due to the create-a-spell mechanics.
    >> HARPOON JONES 05/17/10(Mon)17:34 No.9879868
    Will have pic, may take a few more minutes though.

    Chunks fly from the front of spongebob's engine of destruction, but what remains of the shields holds true as Harpoon Jones, hero of the deep, redlines the motor on a collision course. Seeing time for one last shot, Commander Chuck fires at the turret, and brik gods bless him, he fires true. The red hot missile impacts the turret's barrel dead on, destroying it. The explosion of heat and shrapnel takes out part of the wall, the roof now standing on mere poles, but somehow, SOMEHOW, the anemone gunner survives. He turns to run, but trips on the rubble from the ruined support, and stands up just in time to see Patrick's glorious weapon come to completion.
    None of this matters to Jones. All that matters is finishing the job.
    "You know the plow is gone, right? If you hit that wall, you'll damage the craft just as much as whatever you hit."
    "Plows are for cowards. Face your destiny, waterboy."
    Hands tight on the wheel, Harpoon Jones flies through the remaining supports, coming to a stop conveniently directly atop the former gunner. The impact stuns him, and his ride is trashed, but he grins as the remains of his entrance collapse into rubble. He grins until Patrick rips the windshield from the pilots compartment

    FFFFFF goddamn computer and camera had a bitch fit, had to restart. Sorry for the delay.

    Harpoon Jones looked up, sweat and dust in his eyes. Before him stood his only remaining foe, Patrick Star. The pink starfish was not what caught Jones' attention, however. No, that honor belonged to the HYDRAULIC CLAW Patrick had crafted from spare parts. The very same claw that now held the shattered windshield of the seafloor commander's battered tank like it was a piece of paper, crumpling a sheet of armor that had deflected bullets and rubble alike. Brave, and arguably crazy as he may have been, Jones was never a dumb fig. Before Patrick had a chance to do anything else, Jones dove from the pilot's seat, and scrambled for the rubble piled around the hole he and his crew had left in the side of the bikini bunker.

    With the speed that only the hunted can muster, Jones launched himself through the hole he had left in the bunker. He needed a weapon, a shield, SOMETHING, because the sound of Patrick CRUNCHING the tank out of the way behind him did not bode well. His trusty harpoon gun was empty, and gone. The armaments of his allies were far enough away to make no difference. The two turrets at the enemy base had been destroyed, and he had neither the time nor the supplies to craft anything. His only hope was to run until he could... wait, Commander Chuck! The cannon at the base still had a shot or two left, right? Harpoon Jones ran into the open, alongside the bunker wall. If he could just lure Patrick out, maybe, just maybe, he'd survive. If that pink fucker would just -CRUNCH-

    A hole appeared next to Jones, blown out by the sudden impact of the Fist of the Star. And through it came the madman.

    Harpoon Jones, hero of the deep, had nowhere to go. Before him, a psychopath with impossible machinery and intent to kill. Behind him and to his right was nothing but open fields, and chances were good he'd just die in a less advantageous position than he was in now. To his left, the dropoff. The seafloor only went so far, and who knows what might live beyond that point. No one who went would ever find out, the pressure of the depths would crush them like a bug before they ever saw a thing. With this thought, Harpoon Jones realized he still had a shot. He ran to the very edge. Even the denizens of the deep know not to get too close to the dropoff, but Patrick was beyond reason, and raced after Jones, cackling madly. A missile, boiling the water around it, went screaming through the inch wide gap between man and beast. At this range, hitting a moving target was almost impossible. So Harpoon Jones, Hero of the Deep and Man amongst Figs, did what had to be done. He dove forth, grasping the murderous star by the arms, screaming at the top of his lungs for Chuck to take the shot he was given.

    A man's soul may never be crushed, but men are not made of souls. They are made of flesh, and bone, and occasionally ABS plastic. Patrick, his quarry finally in reach, grasped Harpoon Jones about the waist, and raised him high in the air with the might of his vicious hydraulic claw. He laughed as he squeezed the puny surface dweller ever tighter. He laughed even as Commander Chuck, eyes wet with tears, fired Aquabase's last missile into his pink back. He laughed his way into the deep. And if Commander Chuck, sole survivor of the raid on bikini bottom, is to be trusted... so did Harpoon Jones.

    Harpoon Jones will never die. Not when he is in the hearts and minds of figs all over.

    Also, I cannot seem to find my harpoons or harpoon guns, so you guys are going to get the Hollywood Dramatic Retelling shot, where Harpoon Jones slaughters spongebob BY HAND, WITH AN EXPLOSIVE TIPPED HARPOON.

    Ok, let me see if I've got all this...

    *Please note that ever since I've been able to I've been keeping sets together*

    Ships/heavy support
    1 Droid Tri fighter
    1 rapid fire viking catapult
    1 two arm viking catapult
    1 troll battlewheel
    1 dorf catapult
    1 small troll artillery piece
    1 50th anniversary Y-wing
    2 AT-AP walkers
    2 custom ships (I'll need to post them)

    1 dorf (potential hero)
    a small pile of clone troopers/stormtroopers
    a pile 'o vikings
    a pile of trolls
    a small pile of knights
    (i have no idea how many is in each group, i'll need to count)
    2 custom ship pilots
    one of these is rather benign looking, the other is in original Boba Fett armor, is flying my "Ive spent years tweaking this" ship, and has two lazor rifles, one of which is a rather neat custom job. The second pilot is definitely a hero should I field him.
    The armored dragon, upon which rides my Viking Thane, he is armed with badassery, a golden sword, and a neat looking gun.
    And last but not least, my favorite second only to my ship, the dreaded Lazer Crab.

    This is the first I've really told anyone (openly on the interwebs) about the Lazor Crab.

    He is a fearsome beast, and he is armed with Transparent Orange Lazors.

    At some point, I'm gonna fuck someones shit up.

    Last time I went to sleep, the thread I made was filled to the brim with win.

    Can you guys manage to pull that off again?

    Success! ...I think.
    Not sure what to call it, and unless I'm missing something it's pretty much impossible for me to get it to try to put the actual minifigs in the cockpit - though as far as I can tell, they SHOULD fit in it.

    It's got a rotating dorsal turret; the only route of access is also through a dorsal hatch.

    FUCK YEAR thread still here!

    Right now I'm working on raising the ceiling by 1 level - that should be all the headroom I need.

    I quite like how the roof looks, though, so I'm going to try adding more wall underneath the engines and hope it doesn't screw with the way it looks (or the landing gear).

    SUCCESS! Added another brick of height to the thing, and the pilot & gunner now fit nicely!

    It's got functional landing gear (assuming that the gear can hold up to its weight...can't be sure of that from the designer), a 360-degree rotating turret with up to 90-degree inclination, and a flip-up dorsal hatch for access to the cabin.

    I'm thinking of changing up the pilots' uniforms - right now they're in very Golden-Age aviator outfits, complete with flight caps and goggles.

    Current price check: 66.85, damn this thing's pricey.

    These threads make me sad I gave my old lego to my twelve-year-old nephew.

    Oh well, it had a good run. I had to pass it on sooner or later, and it went out with a bang; a three-metre long SSBN submarine in full scale with the legomen with the centrepiece of SSBN tubes that opened the hatches, raised the missiles into position, and then actually fired them, using a series of levers on the outside.

    I knew it was the right choice to let him have it when he pointed out that by adding in spinners and a long tube I could actually integrate two-key security into the SSBN launch mechanism.

    I may...dunno. $70+s&H is a bit much. I'm also a bit worried that the automatically-generated instructions are, frankly, rubbish...

    Pic is showing off the landing gear - I made a few tweaks to it. As shown it's actually not lifting the ship off the ground at all, just steadying it - but if they're pushed down all the way (rather than angled) they should keep the ship's belly off the ground.
    >> Urist 05/18/10(Tue)15:25 No.9899601
    I think that it looks rather pro, and that you should order it for the sake of ordering it, but ya $70 seems a little much.

    Oh well, not like its a one time offer. Perhaps you should just save it and wait till you have enough to buy it and not hurt your wallet.

    I haven't had a chance to retrieve several bins of bricks from my parents' house, but this is the hero I want to build:

    Johnny Promethium, Action Arsonist (Hero), 20 CP
    Skill: 1d10
    Move: 6"
    Armor: 3d6
    +1CP Multitasking: Unit may target two separate enemies or make one attack and perform one other action. p. 54
    +1CP Multidexterity: Unit may use two hands for one action.
    +1CP Armor. -1" move, +1d6 armor
    +6CP Two handheld flamethrowers: Use: 3 Range: 6" Damage: 1d6

    Essentially, I'm going to play him as a Churchill flame tank reincarnated on two legs. Surround him with cheap CC troops to redshirt and just wander around the battlefield toasting things. That or have him surf a tank into battle, depending on the circumstances.

    Is giving him Multidexterity and Multitasking legitimate? I mean, he *does* have two flamethrowers, and I see no reason why he shouldn't be able to use them both.
    >> Sasha !ApPkmtJbAE 05/19/10(Wed)00:06 No.9908835

    I'm not sure what a Churchill flame tank is, but it sounds intriguing.
