That they're sometimes right? Or at least I thought that's what the saying was. Anyway, you're right in this case.

The problem with using the 2005 squad rules is that Mike has been reworking them from the ground up so that they're actually fun. I've never used them, but from what I've heard they weren't really worth using. I'd say try them out, see how it goes for you, and base your opinion on that. If you don't like them, stubby usually posts some snippets of rules he's working on, so you might find some fragments of the 2010 rules floating around here. If you find anything, you could probably just fudge the rest. If not, then try making your own rules. Mike is always looking for suggestions for improvement.

Pretty much everything about squads is the same, except that officers are a little different (gives everyone in squad 1d8 skill so long as it is part of a combined group action), and that it never costs an action to form or break formations

Oh fuck I just realised something.

We are now closer to the brikwars 2010, 5 year anniversary edition than to the 2010 rulebook being released.

Yeah...that one threw me too. Maybe if nothing else it's time to rename it Brikwars n=year+1 edition?

Is there a way to download the unfinished version of the rulebook 2010? Because I searched and I didn't find.

A quick suggestion for the 2010 :lol: rulebook. Add in FAQ, 'Tips', charts & Common Homebrews sections at the end. The FAQ would probably be about 2 A4 pages, and just contain the contents of this sub-forum, things that don't deserve full entries and mostly clarifications. The Tips would be shorter, simple things like this, anything that is 'out of the ordinary' in wargame 'tactics'. Tables section is self explanatory, preferably on a single page. Lastly the Common Homebrews should just be a quick distillation of the more common house rules, such as 'short-hand' explosives, hit-points, 2001 extracts, etcetera.

Nope.

I've been adding in this kind of stuff in little inline advice boxes, but I don't think I've uploaded that version yet. Tables are planned as soon as I finalize more tables.

So here's my NEW IDEA. I call it That Escalated Quickly. As soon as someone gets First Blood, you put an Escalation d6 on the table, with the "1" face up. From that point forward, at the beginning of each of the First Blood player's turns, you increase the number by +1 until you hit a maximum of +6.

The number on the Escalation Die is added to every Skill and Damage roll from that point forward. This makes getting First Blood even more of an advantage, and it also accelerates the pacing and makes turtling less effective as a long term strategy.

The escalation bonus is accessible by all players?

I would assume so.

Yes, as long as they score first blood for their team. Once everyone's made a kill and joined the club, it all cancels out.

The way I'm reading it, the escalation d6 is now becoming a permanent ticking "counter" that adds a bonus to all skill and damage for all players until the end of the game.

This needs to be clarified.

6. It kills a fig, this is First Blood. It places a 1d6 on the table, 1 is up.
ONLY the First Blood player gets the benefit of +n on every Skill and Damage roll.
The die is advanced one number at the beginning of its turn.
At the beginning of a turn, if the die is already a 6, it is removed from play and the bonus is no longer used.
It puts on the lotion.

7. There is no seven.

8. The Turtling player shoots one of his own men in the head to gain the First Blood / Escalation die, thus ensuring Turtle Power FTW.

9. Number 6 could be wrong.

Oh yeah, I forgot I allowed First Blood against your own team. Hmm.

Anyway, Escalation is for everyone, not just the First Blood player. The game just speeds up and gets more deadly while stuff like cover and heavy armor gets less relevant. I'm trying to think of different ways to handle the pacing of escalation to see if there's something I like better.

I'd suggest adding it to armor rolls too (so that once everyone's gotten a kill the values all cancel out), but I feel turtlers would just kill one of their own guys off immediately for this. Which is lame.

My suggestion is to rename it. That escalated quickly is a meme, and memes become dated and annoying quickly.
