I've been working on this guys for a little while now it started off with the turret (based on the Char 2C) that i wanted to fit a crew (it can fit 3 crew in the turret as well as 4 rounds of ammo) after i finished the turret i started working on a body for it and this is the end result. I think it turned out well i am rethinking the sponsons they are a little low for me and maybe a little small. Let me know what you guys think.

I also built a pair of light field guns for Caledonia  as well.

I love those guns, and definitely see myself stealing the design.

I might just modernize that field gun design as well as making a few of those. It avoids being bulky like so many others do.
Also, if you're building a tank like that, I recently came into possession of a lemon russ from 40k, and I really like it's sponsons. you may want to look at that.

Tbh I dig the aesthetic as it is. A few of those frontal bricks are asking for some covering, but overall it's great!

They informed all of us back in October or September or something, so it's not all that bad - lots of time to prepare, and I've got months of severance to just sit around and do nothing if I want. Or do a BrikWars kickstarter maybe. Whatever crazy idea springs to mind.


Not to dredge up old issues here, but I missed this thread of discussion the first time around.  I know you were just tossing things out there, but have you given any more consideration to this Mike?  What would you do with a Kickstarter project?  Would it to be to raise funds to publish a hardcopy set of rules?

Yes, that's right. There's a lot of work that goes into hardcopying a rules. I'd need (at minimum) to hire people for layout, editing, navigating all the dumb print-world stuff like ISBN etc, and legal counsel (there's a bunch of IP issues to sort out!) to get it in print shape; then I need to figure out crediting and compensation for anyone whose work appears in the book (which is a lot of people here). Then it's the printing and distribution, which I'd want somebody else to manage, so I'll have to partner up with some company for those, and figure out the costs of that. So that's what the kickstarting would go towards.

And before all that, I need to rewrite the whole thing for print, which has different requirements than a website where I'm just fucking around and putting in giant blocks of deliberately obtuse and terrible rules just to irritate people.

And you need to finish the rules.

Obtuse and terrible? You mean collision rules weren't supposed to be the gold standard of game design? Huh.

Here's a random collection of stuff of various ages.

Image
Image
An up-scaled, slightly more Brikwarsy rat rod. I got a hold of that Fabuland roof last summer specifically for something like this, so I figured I'd finally put it to use.

Image
A hormagaunt to go along with the dreadnought and sentinel.

Image
Image
A giant beetle. The idea is that the species was domesticated by traders, who remove their egg sacs to make room for storage, effectively making them a living, armoured safe.

Image
Finally, a gryphon that I made about a year ago. I've moved twice since I built it so it's been sitting in storage for a while now, along with a ton of other stuff I've never taken pictures of.

Image
In flight.

The next edition will be only collision rules. Book 1: collision rules Book 2: more collision rules
