Wow, that must have been a big project. Not bad, not bad at all. I really like most of the guns.

First thing to jump in my eyes was the XK-667 sniper rifle. With only 8 CP you get range of 25 inches, and basically 50% chance of kill. It's way too cheap, if you ask me. Minimum cost should be about 15 CP, so it wouldn't be so easy to get. With that small price, someone would arm his/her whole army with these, and nothing could stop him (except tank, which has absolutely no holes to shoot trough).

And the difference of I-65 and I-70. 2 CP, and what you get:
1. 2" more to Range
2. +2 to Damage
3. chance of automatic fire of two shots.
Make the cost 6 or 7 CP and I will be happy.

Then the CC weapons. Where would I begin..
HK-9 goes, it's cool.

Nemesis, on the other hand, is WAY too cheap. 4 CP and 2d6+2 Damage? What on Earth? Make it 5 CP and take the Movement penalty, and I like it. But now it's too good. Cost doesn't equal with the weapon.

Scorpion. It's a good idea, but how does the blade-wrenching really work?

Hopefully I didn't sound too rude. If I did, my apologies, I tried to avoid sounding aggressive.

The XK-667's pictured are the only one's I've got, and I don't plan on making any more. If someone wants to go wild with it, the Hammer of Discipline awaits their face.

And the difference of I-65 and I-70. 2 CP, and what you get:
1. 2" more to Range
2. +2 to Damage
3. chance of automatic fire of two shots.
Make the cost 6 or 7 CP and I will be happy.


I've only got one of the I-70's, and the guy who uses it already costs nearly 50 CP, so I really don't care about the pricing of that one.

Nemesis, on the other hand, is WAY too cheap. 4 CP and 2d6+2 Damage? What on Earth? Make it 5 CP and take the Movement penalty, and I like it. But now it's too good. Cost doesn't equal with the weapon.


Once again, I've only got one, and the guy who uses it is a frakking Grey Knight, so even if I did nerf the Nemesis, the fact that the guy who uses it is a Hero unit unbalances it again. The point of this game is for the battles to be insane. Orks and Chaos would be good 40K races for Brikwars.

Scorpion. It's a good idea, but how does the blade-wrenching really work?


Like I said, this is based off a real weapon, and I've tested the blade-wrenching. I used a pair with dull blades an my uncle used a Katana, also with a dulled blade, and I basically caught it with the tail of the Scorpion, and twisted it out of his hand.


And for future reference, I really don't plan on using CP in any of my battles, because A) I don't have an opponate, so it's all solo battles, and B) the only person I know of who could possibly play against me arms his men with plasma uzi's and heavy body armor. This game was not designed with balance in mind.

Oh, I understand now. I just have this annoying habit to spot all thing that I think aren't perfect. But if the goal is to have insane battles, it's understandable. Have you played with all these weapons yet?

Sorry, I should have made the question clearer. I know how the real version works, but I meant how it works in BrikWars. What is the UR and is the enemy able to fight back? I'll try to be clearer next time, sorry about that again.

Oh, yes, that part. Well, I figure it should just be the unit armed with the Scorpion rolling it's skill against the unit with the blade. Higher roll wins, if Scorpion boy wins it, the blade is wrenched out of his opponates hands. If the blade guy wins it, then the one armed with the Scorpion get's it's arm lopped off.

actually, your snipers can be very easily fixed.

if you only have the specific sniper class able to use them at 1d2 skill, then it;s fixed. make the UR about 5 for any non-sniper to use it.

also your armor-cracker should be able to be fired at infantry. everybody likes overkill. perhaps a skill bonus to make it easier to hit armor would make it worth it as an anti-armor gun?

That's sounds cool. I mean same cool as Minifig leaping as an Enemy Response for about 30", from a collapsing tower to the wing of crashed airplane. That was cool. And it has really happened :)

And that would really work, I can imagine it now: two Ninjas fighting, other has the Scorpion; he tries to get the enemy's katana, and finds himself with a bleeding stump. What about the enemy's weapon? Should it be the same with a knife and two-handed halberd?
