hahaha sorry im such a noob but i can't understand a lot of the rulebook, i printed it out and read it. But there are still many things that i don't understand.. usually i learn best from examples, so if anyone has the time could they please do like an example battle between vehicles (with pilots) and maybe some creatures? cause i just don't understand.. please don't call me an idiot.. lol thanks.

oh ya, how do i know the skill of a creature? or a cannon/other vehicle weapon? do i just make them up?

Ummm... I don't think I have the time to do that, I recommend just playing some Brikwars, and saying 'to hell with it'.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

look on the chart of movements and armors, and use what makes sense. GENERALLY:

1d6 armor = minifigs, plywood buildings, flesh
1d10 armor = sheet metal, most cars, unarmored vehicles
2d10 armor = armored cars, war vehicles with light to medium armor
3d10 armor = tanks and the like. heavy stuff
4d10 armor = ridiculously heavy tanks, rare but strong things
5dto armor = ancient impenetrable wall of bone cast by sacrificing the blood of the innocents. one-of-a-kind godlike creations.

If you actually read the rulebook it spells it out pretty simply.

Yes, I print out copies of charts and tape them near where I Brikwar for easy reference. Stats for vehicles are easy. Against my will, here is an example:
_______________________________________________

Army Jeep

Move: 15"
Armor: 1d10+3 (between numbers 2 and 3 on IV's chart)

Weapons:

Mg42 Machine Gun:
UR: 4
DMG: 1d6+3

_______________________________________________

So look through the 2001/2005 rules for charts, pick some, and print. It's easy to make stats for vehicles that way, bub.

Dr. X, it says on the tables that most cars travel at 12". only things like motorcycles will get 16", which is preeetty fast.

Examples?

I haven't got time for that. The Rulebook is full of examples.

Read the special creations section of the 2005 rules. that part is all about creatures, vehikles and other special creations. It should answer all your questions.
