I've always house-ruled that glass has 1 HP, unless it's windows on a military vehicle. Then it's bulletproof glass, with an armor of 1d10.

It's not JUST glass though. If someone targeted a window or glass counter of course there should be some logical flexibility. I lowered the furniture's generic overall level for speeding up machine gun fire, missed shots, etc.

Regular glass usually just breaks after taking a single point of damage - it is glass after all. On a military vehicle or something I think it'd be okay to count the plated glass as only a single structure level below, but for standard civillian buildings and vehicles, it's usually funnier if the glass breaks easy.

1d6 at all other furniture is totally reasonable though - that couch you're using for cover ought to provide SOME defense.

Glass doesn't completely shatter after one hit, it just doesn't provide any defense. A stained glass window won't stop a bullet, but it will still distort enemies' vision until it's actually broken through.

It's actually not a bad idea at all! A guard tower or a wooden platform (for a medieval army) could be a nonmoving structure, provide a place to add some larger guns (siz 2+ machineguns/repeating boltthrowers), have good use of the extra range from firing from an elevated position an hopefully look good on the field. However, it'd be quite cheap to give it some movement too, and then we're rolling again... but I'll actually think about buying one or two extra structures next time. I like the idea of gunfights in buildings.

Oh man, you're totally right. I can't believe I didn't put that together.... I was even considering how perfect it would be (in rules terms, not model) to represent Hawkeye's flying cycle (from the comics). That should have been enough to put two and two together.

You should get Natalya to put them on her stat card app.

I don't really see the point. They're just regular minifigs with regular equipment. The Stat Card app is more for specific forces, I think.

Aren't all minifigs just regular minifigs with regular equipment in various combinations?

Anyway, I reposted them in her thread.

As far as I can tell, Natalya wants some randome figs too. That way if you just go to the store and feel 'em up then you can do a quick brikwar without having to go through te hassle of making and statting the forces.

They add great flavor, and are perfect examples of regular-ass figs with only a few minor modifications. Each of those minifigs is now a full-fledged character in Brikwars.
