The Encyclopedia Medivo

Postby Zahru II » Fri Oct 22, 2010 3:00 pm

Okay, so for the sake of correctness, I'll open a whole new thread for my armies with stats and sorts, for an easy reference for my forum battles.

Let's start with the Empire, the united armies of man et citera...

2011.01.08- Updated everything, unit replacements, betterish pictures.

2011.01.15- Wikified and will be continuously updated there from now on like Bonn-o-Tron. This thread may be outdated and incorrect from this point, but I'll leave it be for the record. To check the up-to-date Encyclopedia, visit the following link:
http://brikwars.wikispaces.com/The+Encyclopedia+Medivo

2011.12.18 - The wiki page of the Encyclopedia has been updated, the information here is outdated.

Workers:

Image

Doing these guys was a long-term plan of mine. They're basically what peasants are: untrained, cheap, and not so effective.

Stats:

Worker:

1d6-1 skill
5 inch movement
1d6-2 armor

Special: Can repair things. Since they're the lowest ANY other unit or squad can use them for redshirts.

The squad leader is no better, but he has Leadership.
Armed with simple tools: use rate 3, 1d6 damage, close combat.

Why: They were too uniformized, and I wanted to make them something more than cannon fodder.

Swordsmen:

Image

The main infantry of the Empire, good in high numbers.

Stats:

Swordsman
1d6 skill
5 inch movement
4 armor

Officer
1d6+1 skill
5 inch movement
1d10 armor

Armed with swords (use 2, 1d6 damage, close combat), and shields (use 2, 1d6 armor when parrying). The officer wears armor (+2 armor).

Since they're usually attached to swordsmen, I have to do clerics now:
they're holy men who weave the winds of magik for healing purposes mostly, but they got other tricks too.

Stats:

1d6 skill
5 inch movement
4 armor

Special ability: Magik (clerical): clerics can use magik as heros use their feats. Spells they're good at: Restoring hit points, Resurrecting minifigs, Dispelling foul magiks, Casting defensive barrier (as a reaction), Repel Undead.

Halberdiers:

Image

Tough and resilient, the halberdiers are renown for their unusual viciousness.

Stats:

Halberdier
1d6+1 skill
5 inch movement
5 armor

Officer
1d6+2 skill
5 inch movement
1d10 armor

Armed with halberds (use 3, 1d6+2 damage, close combat). Officer wears armor (+2 armor).

Why: Spearmen were dull and resembled too much to the swordsmen.

Crossbowmen:

Image

Imperial ranged troops.

Stats:

Crossbowman

1d6 skill
5 inch movement
4 armor

Officer

1d6+1 skill
5 inch movement
1d10 armor

Armed with crossbows (use 3, 1d6+1 damage, 10 inch range).

Dwarves:

Image

Dwarves are no different on Medivo than anywhere else: they like drinking, and treasures and sorts. One may wonder why they're not pals with Warhead.

Stats:

Dwarf

1d6 skill
5 inch movement
5 armor

Dwarf Officer

1d6+1 skill
5 inch movement
1d10 armor

Armed with dwarven weapons (use 2, 1d6+1 damage, close combat) and dwarven shields (use 2, 1d10 armor when parrying).

Special abilities: Grudge: when a dwarf dies, the rest swears to avenge him. Thus they receive a grudge point. Grudge points can be used to give a temporary +1 skill/movement/armor for a round.

Cavalry:

Image

The cavalry is one of the most powerful land units; their charge can be surely devastating.

Stats:

Knight

1d6 skill
5 inch movement
4 armor

Knight commander

1d6+1 skill
5 inch movement
1d10 armor

Armed with lances (use 5, 2d6 damage, close combat/charge), swords (use 2, 1d6 damage, close combat), shields (use 2, 1d6 armor when parrying). All of them wear armor (+2 armor).

Runeknights:

Image

The most powerful knights who could manage to control the power of the runic magiks.

Stats:

Runeknight

1d10 skill
7 inch movement
2d6 armor
2 hit points

Special ability: Rune Magik: Activating rune powers is a full action. One rune power can only be used once in a battle.
Note: Only one rune power can be chosen per battle. I found them unbalanced.
Runes:
Rune of True Striking: gives 1d6 skill bonus until the next hit.
Rune of the Swift Winds: gives 1d6 movement bonus for a turn.
Rune of Shielding: gives 1d6 armor bonus against a strike. Can be used as a reaction.
Rune of Smiting: 6 inch range. Deals 1d6 damage to an opponent.

Armed with lances (use 5, 2d6 damage, close combat), runeswords (use 3, 1d6+2 damage, close combat), shields (use 2, 1d6 armor when parrying), and armor (+2 armor, for the horses too).

Indeed I did!
The Imperial Siege Armaments:

Image

Engineers

Crafty fellows who always come up with new inventions.

1d6 skill
5 inch movement
4 armor

Special ability: can repair machinery. If equipped with proper object, they can target a unit, giving +1 skill mod to a ranged weapon operator.

Armed with guns (use 3, 1d6 damage, 6 inch range), and a random distance-measuring device (random object).

Cannon

Straightforward, yet effective war machinery.

No skill
Same movement as the minifig who's pushing it
1d10 armor
Attack: use3, 12 inch range, 1d10 explosive damage. Needs a turn, 2 minifigs, and a cannonball to fire again.

The operators are regular minifigs, armed with random objects.

Ribault

A more complex design from the engineer's guild.

No skill
Same movement as the minifig who's pushing it
1d10 armor
Attack: use 3, 10 inch range, 1d6 damage for each gun. Guns fire in a straight line always, the amount of damage dealt depends on how many of the shots actually hit someone.

example:

=:====C
=:====G
=:=====O

=: is for a pair of guns, O is for an ork, C under G is for Corpse Grinder. According to this, when the ribault fires, the ork suffers a 2d6 hit, while Corpse Grinder gets a 4d6 hit.

1 turn is needed for reload, operated by a minifig.

Volley Cart

Image

Experimenting with delivering explosives to distances, the guild created a primitive rocket rack.

Volley Cart:

Movement same as the minifig who tows it.
1d10 armor, 2 sp
Attack: Rockets (ur 3, random range(3d6 inches), 1d10+1 explosive damage)

Trogdor

Image

A reused dwarven schematic; automatized burninator.

Trogdor:

7 inch movement
2d10 armor
Attack: flame burst (ur 3, 6 inch range, 1d6+2 fire damage)

Trogdor Driver:
1d6 skill
5 inch movement
5 armor

Special ability: Grudge

Why: The flamer was too frail for my liking.

Rocketeers

Image

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it death soaring down from the skies with jetpacks? No one knows.

1d6 skill
10 inch movement
1d6 armor
2 hit points

Special ability: Flyer (can move through obstacles and enemy units)

Armed with dual pistols (use 3, 6 inch range, 1d6 damage).

Dwarven Warmachine

Image

Compact, mobile and destructive.

6 inch movement
2d10 armor
no skill
Attack: catapult: use 3, 10 inch range, 1d10 explosive damage.

Manned by 2 dwarves.

Speaking of machinery, when a skillfail occurs, I roll for what type of failure. Depending on the rolls it could be:
1: BOOM! The machine blows up, killing the crew.
2-3: The machine is broken, and won't work until repaired.
4-5: The machine is jammed, the attack fails, but no reload is needed, however it can only fire at the next round.
6: Nothing happens, simply failed to attack.

Storm Titan

Image

Hailing from the mountainous regions of Medivo, these noble giants aid the minifigs against their fight with evil.

1d10 skill
6 inch movement
2d10 armor
3 hit points

Special abilities: lightning-based feats: lightning bolts, electric fields, etc.

Armed with Thundersword (use 3 (for the titan, tripled use for a normal minifig), 2d6 damage, close combat) and Great shield (use 3, 2d10 armor when parrying).

Pretty awesome army here. ^_^ Siege machines are always cool, and I really like the Peasants and Rune Knights (Shining Force reference?). You have to really expand those peasant squads, though.

Never heard of it, I just refused to call them paladins, so I came up with this. And yeah, another squad of peasants would come real handy.

Gahh, even the peasants are getting in on the action. Very pretty army, I hope I get the chance to crush them all one day. Also, Scottish Dwarfs they might be but I'm a heightist, they just look like mobile pint rests to me mate.

General stats for a Troll

That one troll needs a stroller for his canon ammo.

Your army looks really good although I would give every race a racial advantage even the orcs.

So much awesome. I'm a big fan of troop uniformity (and general snazziness) - I really think some of the Medieval sets have the best looking minifigs.

Everything looks great. I like your peasants - they turned out well. All of your soldiers (human and not) look great (though I'm not a fan of "mages" in general - I think the Cleric is the most out-of-place looking thing on your lists). Your engineers and rocketeers are my favorites - both look just beyond awesome. Oh, and I dig the rimbault - great inclusion.

Gah. Seeing all those Orks... How did you -get- all of them? Just orders online? Oh wait, was there an Ork army-builder pack? If I could get enough lego Orks, I know at least one 40k player I'd be able to coax over into BrikWars.

Anyways: Great job.
