I'd be more curious why in the world you do this? If minifig armor is 4, a regular hand weapon that does damage has a 33% chance of killing the target (assuming no parries). Hand weapons that deal 2d6! damage increase the likelihood to 83%. That's not even considering Heavy, Two-handed, and larger weapons. Percentages moving in that direction actually make rolling for damage itself unnecessary! You should just speed up your games even more and say that all successful skill rolls = deathblows...

my good sir, I probably don't even play brikwars! UR? Waste of time. Armor rolls? Just roll attack. Normal minifig? Pimp him out with armor, and he's cool. In a battle where normal minifigs outnumber special ones, (most games have 10 on each side) we use normal guns, but any other game, +1d6 does it nuff said.

What ever floats your boat/tickles your prostate, but that is kind of going to be an issue when you play a game with other brikwarriors.

Yeah I think you might still not understand that you're rolling waaaay more dice than you need to. Bigger numbers =/= more fun.

Indeed. Over-complication is distracting. You're too busy rolling dice and doing maths that you forget to actually have fun playing a game.
Give a minifig an inch, and he'll murder for a mile.
