like if all parts got sepperated because he used to be a suicide bomber, he would be a lot harder to heal than a fig who was just chopped in half. that is a good rule because then people are more likely to come up with as violent (thus entertaining) forms of death possible for thier figs. I might come up whith like a ker-bust'em table or something if I get time later for this pupose. So I would like to pick option 3 but it is not there at this time.
the basic rules don't include damage tracking for types of injuries or specific bodyparts. your either dead or not. the removal of parts is just a way of showing "this one is 'dead', not just sleeping on the job."
the rules chapter 2 wrote:A minifig’s Armor statistic tells how much Damage he can withstand from a single attack – in this case, four points. If he’s hit by an attack doing four points of Damage or less, the blow glances harmlessly away and the minifig can continue fighting. If the attack does five points of Damage or more, he’s killed instantly. Knock the minifig over and, if appropriate, sever a couple of body parts.
Minifigs don't have "hit points" like some players might have come to expect from other games - in BrikWars, an attack either kills a minifig or it doesn't. In battles that might involve dozens or even hundreds of minifigs at once, a system of hit points is much too burdensome for players to keep track of from turn to turn.
the version i suggested reflect this. a medik can bring back these 'dead' figs, most of the time, regardless of how they died. i used a "heroic action" since thats an existing rule that would allow such. only i specified it can only be used to bring back figs, which seperates a medik from a hero. a hero could use it's heroic action to bring back figs too. but a hero can do much more other than that. a medik can only work miracles to bring back figs.
i also tried to make the fluff text and other special rule fit the description of the minifig from the rules. more for consistancy than anything else.
the rules chapter 2 wrote:"A minifig is a cute and friendly-looking little fellow, but don't let his appearance fool you. Beneath his lovable exterior, a minifig is a vicious and sadistic killer. He’d hack your heart right out of your chest if he thought he could get away with it - his minifig village could live for months off the meat of a good-sized Human heart. Instead, he’s happy to go on massive fratricidal rampages in hopes of gaining favor with his godlike Human overlords."
so what happens when vicious sadistic killers can't bring themselves to put themselves in danger? if comics have shown us anything, they go get a bunch of mooks to fight for them and use said mooks as human shields. the idea that medik's are cowards who have learned to bring back the dead so said mooks never run out seemed fitting.
and the cowardice led to the other special rule. because their cowards, and spent so much time learning how to 'heal', they never learned how to fight. so even some uber-gun is just a club in their hands.
if your own houserules include damage tracking, fell free to add more houserules to give modifiers to the basic "heroic feat to bring a fig back to life" as appropriate. but the basic stats need to be universal, so anyone can use it.
