This is a very Brikwar machine,
Image
Here is the simple yet cool machine.

Image
Now my assistant will demonstrate how it works.

Image
Insert minifig.

Image
Wait for digestion...(i'm not sure this one got resized)

Image
And out pops a weapon!

I don't think it's very "preferable" for them to be dead. I would much rather them be alive.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

Haha yeah, that's awesome. 11/10 for awesomeness and use of 'dead' bodies, but I'll reduce that to 10 because of the ugly pictures. You should download something to resize them.

how it works: First have the operator insert a minifig, then roll 1d6, the number is what weapon will pop out. 1 small CC weapon, 2 medium CC weapon, 3 large CC weapon,
4 pistol, 5 normal rifle, 6 sniper rifle /rocket launcher

OK, STATS:

ARMOR: 2d10
MOVE: 5" (so the operator can keep up)
USE RATING: none

Note: this machine is helpful in larger battles if you want to clear the battlefield, and do something useful at the same time.

yes, i would also prefer live minifigs, hoping that the weapons produced are also alive (because we all love screaming swords).

suggestion though? rolling a d6 to match up to a weapon is a bit awkward, especially when you're matching it up to a chart. my suggestion is just pop out whatever would seem most characteristic and hillarious object of said mulched minifig to pop out - a sniper would pop out a sniper rifle, a bartender would become a drink, and a horribly powerful 12 story tall demon would become a cute little kitten.

And why not add somewhere that the operator can hang off of to let it move faster without leaving him behind? Then it would be much more deadly... and funnier to watch.

Who cares? It's awesome!

I'm liking the chart idea... but... to make things a bit more unified: roll a d2. The result determines whether the processed minifig (which is alive by popular vote) becomes something spontaneous or is affected by the transformation table.

It's still awesome. Also to note are the high-quality pictures; I wish everyones pictures were this excellent.

Ah yes, stats. I'd go for an armour of 3d10, like someone said (I think) and a speed of 8" if the minifig can hold on to be trucked around. If not, 5" is good so he can walk behind, but to me that seems a bit slow.

The colours and seeming gentleness made this awesome, with its nasty gears at wicked angles. Very interesting concept as well. I revise my previous decision and give this an 11/10 once again. :D

haha actually you know what? i'd personally attach a little towing mechanism on it, so it can attach to other vehicles. that way, the operator can be sitting on said vehicle, and use it for nefarious purposes. or better yet, the match becomes each side switching ownership of the recycling machine and mulching minifigs to get awesome crap.

and KoB, i suggested the spontaneity because it's both faster and funnier than a chart. a good rule has as few die rolls as possible.

OK, here is the revised version (stats and all)
Image
I added duel riding thingamajigs...

Image
another view.....

Image
view showing grinder thingies....

Image

STATS:
Move: 8"
Armor: 3d10
Use Rating:none

Notes: It can grind up as many figs per turn as it wants, alowing that there is another fig there to put him/her into it (unless he/she is doing it willingly)
also how it decides which weapon to spite out is decided by the player in charge of said machine.(or the one supplying the snacks....)
