Post by bigbigdogbig » Sun Jan 09, 2011 12:05 pm

the elite minifig

cp 8
skill
1d8
move 6''
armor
1d10

i know it looks like an officer but the elite minifig is trained in the art of "chiiiiiii"
meaning massacre (the elite minifig has two actions!)

So it is a slightly less costly Hero (Hero-lite) that has two actions. Up to the two actions I liked the idea. But why should a lesser minifig get two actions?

It seems like this might be too much IMO.

This guy is sorta like an in-between between the minifig and champion (oh yes 2001-ish unit!).

I'd say get rid of the two actions thing... that's pretty much a little too powerful. If you -really- wanted, you could give him a feat with a -3 to the roll or something, but the better stats might be a good place to stop.

Keep in mind, a regular action is a lot less powerful than a feat. However, I still don't think it should have two actions.

Then perhaps give him a bonus to type of action, like to attacks or building rolls or something?

How about this: the minifig gets two actions, but before the second one is carried out, the players roll off as for a Heroic Feat. Whoever wins controls the second action. So instead of sprinting towards the enemy, the elite minifig might start shooting at his friends. This represents the instability of "chiiiiiii".

While it sounds funny, I think this is one of those things where it is better just to drop the second action. Leave it with the stats increase.

I don't see any problem with this, a minifig with two actions is about as effective as two minifgs but only half as durable. Having two minifigs isn't a game-breaker, so having one who fights like two won't be either.

I don't have the rulebook open in front of me (posting from my blackberry while waiting for my girlfriend to finish thigh-high shopping), but that seems like about the right CP cost compared to a regular minifig (+1 Skill, +1" Move, +1 Structure Level, +1 Multitasking).
