HOLY CRAP!!!! I don't think I have enough enclosed helmets for that... I was thinking of fielding 30-40 figs(pilots, crews, some small contingent of soldiers) I guess I'm going to have to rethink my strategy...

believe me i don't have enough helmets to cover all of that either, maybe 10-20 legomen have helmets, the rest don't. if you breech the hull it will kill up to 20 legomen a ship per breach

Bigger is Better!

Bigger is ALWAYS better! The first battles I've done are on the BIG scale!
Although I can see why medium battles are fun, too.

Gotta bump. About 10% of the entire BrikWars community voted on the poll. That's awesome.

You've got to love when a poll option with a vote in it is counted as 0%.

I guess that I prefer "big" battles. The largest I've ever done was an epic five way battle, with a team with tons of vehicles in the middle, two groups of two allied teams on either side of the middle base, and at least 150 minifigs fighting. It took around 4-5 hours, one team leaving in the middle, a giant EMP device, a MKVI missile, Admiral Ackbar, a Psycho Jester, Four angry farmer hillbillies, and five Nova Swords to finish.

Sadly, there were no pics outside of some overviews (I could possibly use a flashdrive to steal those...) but most of what was in the middle is in this thread: http://www.brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4749

The next biggest is probably The Battle of BlurryPic Village: http://www.brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4919

I'm currently assembling terrain and factions for what should be another five way battle over Thanksgiving Break.

Small battles with one or two baseplates and 6-8 minifigs on each team I think are the best because it's a lot easier to have fun and less dice rolls.

Big battles are the best. I'd like to do a 100+ fig battle, but don't have nearly enough to do so.

I think the big battles are brilliant but the Epics are too big. They have to much going on like Bonn-o-Tron. :busted:

Miggy, you just rezzed a topic. Before you post, check the date of the previous post. If it is more than a month old, don't post.
