Playing with SigFig ideas

Postby pkbrennan » Sun Feb 03, 2013 11:59 am

Seeming as everyone has a sigfig or two, I'd thought I would start thinking about one for myself. Now I have a habit of gender-bending with online platforms like Second Life - I tend to play females more than I play males for some odd reason. Never figured it out, myself.

Anyway, here is the base figure I used before tearing her apart:

Image

I don't care for the lasso or the rather slutty expression on her face, so I made changes...

Image

The head and the satchel are from the Pharaohs Quest Cobra Statue set. The head is double faced, with the reverse being an alarmed look (which has comedic potential in BrikWars). I also added a rifle and a revolver, giving her a two handed and one handed ranged weapon.

Later I will write her up, give her a name, stats, etc. As for Heroic Abilities, Sharpshooter/Sniper is a must, but I think she should get a special "kick sexists in the nuts" ability too...

Thanks dude. I think women should be formidable in BrikWars (apart from screaming bystanders, naturally). At least as formidable as the women of the PKK.

BrikWiki wrote:Among all the interdimensional abominations and ABS-mutated monstrosities in the BrikVerse, there is one Creature that stands above all others in its ability to terrify even the bravest of minifig men. Few indeed are those who can hold their ground in the face of Girls. (...) In the field, however, a Girl's interest in adhering to stereotypes rarely survives the first round of combat. The Damsels-in-Distress refuse to miss out on killing stuff, and the Fighting FuckToys forget to pretend that the opinions of spectators have any meaning for them. This is incredibly upsetting to minifig men, who are unable to accept the idea that not everything revolves around them.

I know right. I include a lot of badass female characters in my battles.

Well, while waiting for my Dog-Headed-God-Statue-Thing from Pharaohs Quest to come through the post from Germany, I have made a few small orders here and there for stuff.

From Britlink: German Soldier #2 from the Indiana Jones ranges. £4.20 inc P&P. The trader was "Dublo or Bust", up in bonny Scotland.

From MinifigForLife: 5 Lever Action Rifles in brown, 1 limited edition spy (weapons) pack which comes with the Golden Gun, but it is more for the Beretta M96 braced pistol with full automatic fire, the big snipers rifle, and the four hand grenades (you can never have enough explosives) than anything else. For £11.20 inc P&P one cannot complain. Both sets are made by BrickArms, naturally.

Nice figure. I also seem to play female characters more than male atleast on multiplayer servers because the real gamers out there are like,"I GOT KILLED BY A GIRL WHAT DA FUCK MAN!" I tend to enjoy seeing that in the chat and knowing I was the one who killed him.

Finally started working on a card for her, even though I have not written up her stats:

I've made my own xcf card template file for the GIMP to simplify things a bit and arrange them how I like them. KISS is the name of the game when doing this kinda thing...

Yeah. "Anne Casey" is hardly original, but it was the best I could come up with for a cowgirl.

Because of the cowgirl appearance, I just have to sing Psycho Mom! Psycho mom! Psyco mooom! whenever I see this fig. The one mom Warhead can't conquer.

*watches* Bwahahahaha

I thought PsychoMom would be the one Warhead had the most fun with. You know what they say about crazy ones and great sex... :twisted:

So instead of making a new thread with pretty much exactly the same title, I've decided to muscle in on this one. Ohai, pkbrennan, sharesomemorespaceplskthx.

First, please see Far-Ums.

I've been tossing the idea of making my SigFig a Farcaster to match, like in a fictional equivalent way, my Human "Character." I was pretty heavily inspired for the idea by Hitchhiker's Guide. And I tried to make them the most BrikWarsy thing about the Far-Ums concept. I thought about keeping my avatar, a picture of the Street Shaman from my Road Rangers, as a rep of my SigFig since Semaj told me it looked very sage like. It does, thats what I was going for. I'm unsure though, since he's already a character. Thoughts?

The Far-Ums are cool and all, but shouldn't your sigfig be a writer for the Wikikers Guide the the Brikverse or something?

I always liked that figure because he DOES look wise. The Wiki Scribe tag furthers that. I say run with it.

Thanks, pk, lorbaat.

I can do that. I imagined the Far-Ums to be all encompassing in that respect. I can easily imagine Farcasters taking on multiple narrative roles in entertainment. So why not be a writer for the Wikiker's Guide. Give him another reason to travel about. I'll add that in just in case.
