A preview, of sorts

Postby Theblackdog » Sat Jun 20, 2009 9:10 am

I finished all of the microscale spaceships for my next forum battle. My plan is for each team to have a ground and space force -- the ground force tries to fulfill an objective while the space force supports them with orbital bombardment and prevents the other teams' space forces from doing the same thing. Here are all of the non-secret factions' ships.

Image
All of the space units. My team has one frigate, another team has an orbital fortress, and each of the other three (non-secret) teams has two frigates each.

Image
The first pair of frigates. Based on the coloring of these ships and the minifigs and vehicles used in my past battles you should be able to guess roughly what ground forces each of the three 2-frigate teams will be fighting for. My frigate and the battle station aren't so obvious, though.

Image
Well, this pic turned out crappily, but it's the next pair of frigates.

Image
My single frigate.

Image
Of course you've seen these two before.

Image
Crap these shots are blurry... oh well, the main pic still has a lot of detail. One of the players commands this battle station. It's not mobile, but it's heavily armed with defensive cannons and it can deploy remote-controlled kamikaze ships to attack space or ground targets.

The ground forces will take a lot more work and probably another Bricklink order, but they will be ready in August or so.

If you had read the text, you would know that that's my faction's frigate.
It is slightly larger than the others, but in terms of stats it's no different. 8" acceleration, 2 weapon slots, Silhouette of 7, 2D10 armor and 3 HP just like all of the others.

Here's the thing: these are just the space forces. If you reserve a slot now, you'll get those two ships, but the ground forces that go with them can still be claimed by someone else -- in fact, I'll probably reserve them for a player who doesn't know how to do frictionless space combat. On the other hand, if you wait until the top thread (which won't be for another MONTH at least) to pick your team, you can pick ground forces, space forces, or both.

But whoever does a Brikspace forum war still gets a reserved spot, right?

Yes, but they don't get their first choice of factions.

Could I maybe use the ground forces of a team? I've never done a forum battle, let alone a frictionless space one.

Can I have a reserve spot for any ground forces team who does something against the law?

Not really, but the same minifigs that were in that faction are in their ground army.

There are no such factions.

Then can I have a reserve spot for any faction? It does not matter as this will be my first Brikspace game.
