Mandalorians and You!

Postby feuer_faust » Fri Jan 07, 2011 4:53 pm

Or, how to get thine ass whupped!

My roommate and I just got some Mandalorian battle packs, and were looking at how to best represent these elite BAMFs in Brikwars. Here's what I came up with:
Mandalorian Solider (11 cp)

Skill: 1d6
Move: 5"
Armor: 5

Consummate Warrior (3 cp): +1 to skill rolls with any weapon.
Jetpack (2 cp): Allows a 10" move in place of the minifig's usual move. The minifig may go up, over, and around things freely during this move.
MKI Mimetic Armor (1 cp): +1 armor (rather than the +1d6 armor -1 move of heavier, more primitive protection).
Pilot (1 cp): Allows controlling a steed or vehicle as a free action.

Cut down on dice rolls and increase move to 10" with a jetpack, all the cool kids are doing it.

That's the silliest shit I've ever heard. Now pardon me while I work that in.

I thought about armor... the usual rule we go by only physical armor pieces are what matters, not so much what's printed on the torso.

:lol: Nice, full credit to Natalya for that simple jetpack rule. The Assyrians on the Wiki is were I get most of my basic stats from and then tailor race stats from that.

Which is fine, but very un-mandalorian since their armor pretty much defines them as warriors. Just make the increase in armor inherent to them as minifigures, like the officer stat card, for instance.

I like these a lot. Elite but not overpowered like most n00bs make their stats.

Fair point... and they -do- wear helmets on top of everything. Natalya's +1 armor isn't too intrusive either. Hmmmmm...

Thanks, Crazy. :)

...incidentally, I've been thinking about them a slick name, like the Dimmies or Dungans. Maybe the Mambolorians, master of the dance of death!

Mantelorians
Montalorians
Mondolorians

I dunno...


Umm, your original stats in OP, I don't think they made them L33T enough is why I suggested the armour upgrade and I'd agree with Warhead's jetpack suggestion.

But uhh, the way it looks now I think they're probably pretty good now. It's just like I (and I think many others did this) made nearly all of my space guys get the Mimetic Armour upgrade because a thin bullet proof vest which is too small to be made into a PBB is still enough to stop a bullet IRL, so yeah... If anything, it's to reflect the idea that they (as space warriors) would be tougher//harder to kill than an average minifig who just gets the 4 armour.

I gecha. I've broaden my horizons in terms of how we determine stats and whatnot now that we're playing once a week or so. :)

Incidentally, I thought of a fun rule(!) that might work here:
A Face Even His Mother Hates (free?): If a Mandalorian ever is without his helmet, all those nearby stare in horror at his terrible visage (and he feels pretty guilty about it, too). The Mandalorian loses Consummate Warrior, and all units within 12" (including himself) suffer a -1 to all rolls as long as his fugly face is exposed. Dead Mandalorians do not count for this, but are still way ugly.

The armor should be a lot better than simple impact armor, considering the nature of Mando Beskar: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Mandalorian_iron
Beskar armor was still pretty heavy, so a move subtraction would probably be appropriate there, but it's really pretty much negated by their jet packs.
Also, you might want to stat out the rockets from the jetpacks. Your call there.
...
What the hey. This is something I've thought through before, though not in regard to the weeny Death Watch Mandos that Lego is replicating. Here are a few more uniquely Mandalorian options to consider:

Beskad:
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Beskad
Beskar-forged war blade
-Counters energy blades'
-Single-edged, fairly hefty. Good for bludgeoning.

Crushgaunts:
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Crushgaunt
Beskar-weave gauntlets with a specialized reactive fabric to allow the wearer to crush most holdable things... notably throats and body armor
-Counters energy blades.
-Could be used for a pretty deadly melee attack, if the user isn't holding a weapon.
-Awesome.

Helmet HUD:
Self-explanatory.
-Includes targeting optics, 360-degree vision, temporary air supply, com unit, and other nicknacks.

And of course, the armor is modular, to allow for toys like wrist-blasters, flamethrowers, smart-cord launchers, minirockets, and the ever-popular pack-mounted antipersonnel rocket.

The stats I used for Boba Fett, hands-down one of the best mandos around, for a three way fight with Master Chief and a 40k Marine can be found here: http://www.brikwars.com/forums/viewtopi ... 85c60ec7fa
These are a bit, no, ridiculously overpowered for trooper fodder though, since the whole point of that particular battle was to let three god-like heroes go at it (also, I was using some custom rules for concussive force and the like. Beskar can stop a lot, but you can still be turned to jelly inside your armor if enough force is applied.

I guess the thing is that we're representing Mandalorian Lego men, not straight-up one-man army characters. Plus, it's really easy to just pile on the extra good stuff beacuase one really likes their special unit, and before long it's just some crazy shit. I think making them essentially hardier dudes is the way to go; people like Boba the Fett can be represented as a hero with the Mandalorian rules.

In terms of rocket launchers, flamer-wrist-thingies, etc: I really only try to stat up stuff the guy is holding. The rocket launcher in particular has been omitted since the rocket bit doesn't detach. Again, a hero could in theory use his feat to simulate most other craziness.

Hey, your stats and all. I was just throwing in some concepts and stuff I'd used before. I do kinda think they should have a bit more of an armor bonus... but they're not my figs, so not my problem.
And Spartan117, I hate to say this, but now that I've actually played through Halo and finished reading all of the books... I really think Master Chief came out pretty accurately in that battle.
Hm, actually, I love to say that :lol:

Really? weird...I wont get into this much but, do you remember in the fall of reach where he is first testing the mjolinr armor, he is shot by a 150mm cannon a few times and it only takes 1/4th of his shield down...


but then again maybe you read some of the books made by people who made the spartans pansies...


anyway I would make stats for weapons he(boba) might use and then just his basic stats so you can pick and choose
