Evening all. I got myself a little set this Saturnalia, the Samurai Mech from the Ninjago theme. It's quite ok for a purchased set and I've thrown together some stats for it as is
even though there's lots of room for improvment. Mostly this is a small exercise in checking if the rest of you are statting things differently from me. So, presenting:
Size: 4" (the height of the torso + head)
Structure level: 3(d10)
Base cost: 12 CP
Movement (walking) 10"/round = 5 CP
Lasergun Size 2 = 6 CP
Launcher Size 2 = 6 CP
1 Explosive xs2 = 2 CP
Sword Size 6 = 12 CP (though the userating of 7 would be prohibitive, so maybe fudging it to WS4 and 8 CP)
Total cost: 43 CP excluding the pilot (or 41 with the ws4 sword)
The size of 4 allows for 8" of weapons fired each turn, and since there's only one pilot it's going to be either melee or ranged each turn, so it'd be better with more and/or bigger guns, and maybe buying the lefthand claw as a weapon too. And more explosives for the launcher. So, my question: would you have statted it differently as it was from the box? Have I forgotten anything? What would your plans for upgrades be?
Also: if you have nothing to do, stat up a boxed set and post it here.
It's fun to read how different vehicles are statted.
