Your Average, Run-of-the-Mill Jeep!

Postby Blitzen » Sat Mar 15, 2008 11:33 am

Yon Average Jeep

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=306781

<b>Jeep</b>
Cost: 10CP
Size: 4
Move: 12"
Armour: 1d10

This Jeep has two Minifigs and five grenades (explosives).

<b>Minifig</b> x 2
Cost: 4CP
Skill: 1d6
Move: 5"
Armour: 1d6 (4)

<b>Grenade</b> x 5
Cost: 1CP
Use: 3
Range: 0" (1d6" if thrown by Minifig)
Damage: 1d10 exp

So the total cost comes to 23 CP. Ouch.

Notes: There is an engine under the hood with <B>explosive power</b>. As in, it explodes. I was thinking 4" radius.

Tell me how it sucks, etc. etc.

well I think It's a good design but the armor is a bit too high IMO.

<pre>Structure Level Armor Rating Equivalent Materials Building example Vehicle example Creature example

0 1d6 rope, drywall, plastic, flesh tent hang glider minifig
1 1d10 wood, sheet metal, steel cables, kevlar outhouse motorcycle troll
2 2d10 brick, log walls, wrought iron brick building pirate galleon dragon
3 3d10 concrete, mortared stone, armor plating castle armored tank stone giant
4 4d10 heavy steel, reinforced concrete, titanium nuclear bunker space warship steel golem
5 5d10 adamantite, force fields Illuminati pyramid Dungam mobile suit Olympian god</pre>

As this messed up table shows, 2d10 is the armour of brick, log walls, wrought iron, a brick building, a pirate galleon, and a dragon. Perhaps 1d10 would be more suited for this. 1d10 armour would also reduce the cost of the Jeep by 4CP.

I was thinking that explosive devices would just trigger the engine to explode, and totally rip this thing apart. It is also my opinion that explosives are under-powered. I guess the only solution is to make bigger bombs.

Yeah or you could just take a normal size explosive (like a hand grenade) adn with other explosives you just say: hmm It's just as big as ..X.. hand grenades so it does ass much damage as ..X.. hand grenades.
so the dynamite 1x2 tile would be twice ass strong as a normal grenade.

a jeep is generally made of sheet metal. that's 1d10 armor. other than that, not bad for the rest of the stats, and the (digital) construction quality ain't bad either! keep it up

Nice construction. It would be pretty awesome if you could get a real version of it.

Theoretically, I could, if my parents weren't so adverse about buying LEGO bricks for me. But 'tis a shame: this model is about five bucks cheaper in the US, and $20.34 here.

20 bucks? Ouch. No offense, but no miniature jeep that size isn't work 20 dollars.

That's what I'm saying. And it doesn't even include shipping.

1 1d10 wood, sheet metal, steel cables, kevlar outhouse motorcycle troll
2 2d10 brick, log walls, wrought iron brick building pirate galleon dragon


I think CRAZYHORSE is right the vehicle is made from 12-16 guage sheet metal for most the body panels so 2d10 seems to high

A real army Jeep has about as much armour as your washing machine or Dryer,... or your car if you have one they are all about the same
