The BrikWars Rulebook wrote:Minifigs lack the ability to clench their clawlike hands into fists, and the limited range of minifig leg motion means that the groins of their enemies will never be exposed to their nonexistent knees. As a result, unarmed combat between minifigs is an almost complete waste of time. The only worthwhile use for Bare Hands is in grabbing someone else's dropped weapon.
Bare Hands cannot be used to Attack or Parry. They may only be used to Shove, and only if both hands are empty, in a desperate attempt to get away from the real warriors who remembered to come armed.
What? Why can't I kill someone with my bare hands? Can't I punch someone to death if I have the patience to do so?
(I have a way of doing this, but let us hear Rayhawk's explanation first).
