Minifig Space equipment

Postby Theblackdog » Sat Feb 13, 2010 12:14 pm

After reading the report Strana posted for his minifig scale space battle against RoC and the Vol, I thought of a couple interesting ideas that might see use in a minifig scale space battle.  


The Boarding Tank, a microsized tank designed to fit through the cramped spaces of a warship or building.  It was inspired by someone (I forget who) saying that if they boarded the Vol cruiser, they would use a tank since it had a big hangar bay and fairly large rooms.  The Boarding Tank carries a single flamethrower, so its offensive power is no greater than an ordinary trooper's, but its layer of defensive frontal armor makes it much harder to take down.  I built this for combat inside buildings, but it's worth posting here.

Proof that it can fit through a 4 stud wide doorway.  It's pretty much as mobile as a standard minifig.    

A better version of this from a NELUG game.  This was my original inspiration.  

One idea that I'm quite proud of is the ram drone.  Basically it's a small robot ship that allocates all of its weapon capacity to a giant CC weapon.  I envision these being deployed in squadrons of 10-20 from the launch bay of a small to medium sized warship.  Each ram drone can (probably) destroy a small fighter in a single attack.  They're like anti-fighter missiles, but reusable!  

Now back to pining for a bunch of giant spaceships.

This would also make a good armoured-gunner emplacement along the side of a ship. Just imagine 10 of these all lined up along the side of a ship.

That tank is brilliant.
