You could just go check out the minifig weapons page for yourself.

:studgod: The revised Minifig Weapons chapter is good. The new armor and shield rules aren't overly complicated. I had feared they would be.

But that's been there for a while now. I was just wondering if Stubby is still polishing some chapters or what.

Back to working 16-hour-days plus weekends for the next couple of months. Fucking LEGO, man.

Can I strap an energy shield to the bottom of a vehicle that makes it resistant to difficult terrain? I want to put one of my units on a hoverbike, but I don't want to spend any CP on flight since the bike itself isn't more than half an inch off the table.

If I recount correctly the rulebook states somewhere that hovering isn't flight but just another form of ground propulsion. You do still need something to represent the propulsion element though.

Even then, difficult terrain doesn't do damage, so a shield won't do shit. Just say that it's hovering movement and don't worry about it.

It's listed as damage though. It just attacks a unit's movement instead of it's armor.

Don't you think everybody around the table will agree that difficult terrain doesn't affect hovering vehicles movement in most cases.
In brikwars you often have to allow common sense say "fuck you!" to the rules.

Fair enough. Though, most of the people I play with also play 40k, and are rules lawyers.
If it comes up, I'll just slap the shield on it at the last minute. It's only 1cp anyway.

If you're having problems with rules lawyers, then you clearly did not build a proper Hammer of Discipline.

I've uploaded revisions to a half dozen chapters, though it's mostly just CSS cleanup and changing the presentation order around. You'll note that Chapter 5 has the new rules for Grabs now, and it now takes four inches to build a Momentum die instead of two. (I haven't updated Chapter 8 to match this yet, but that's on the way.) The explanation of a bunch of stuff in Chapter 5, like Momentum and Close Combat, is now more streamlined and hopefully easier to understand. (It'll be better still with more example illustrations, of course.)

Good afternoon gentlemen and/or ladies,
I'm not sure it's my place to ask, as a new member, but here goes:
What happens in the final chapter? Was it really the butler who killed...oops, wrong far-um. What I meant to ask was should I stick with the squad system (e.g. movement, measuring, squad plate, standard etc.) from the 2005 edition of the rules until further notice? Or is it just me who can't access the last chapter? Currently I'm assuming it hasn't been written or uploaded yet, but you know what they say about assumptions.
