Power packs

Postby DatGuy » Sun Apr 15, 2018 5:14 pm

So I was thinking about a way to give minifigs huge guns. I know heavies exist, but here's an alternate idea: Power Packs. Power packs give any unit +1 inch of Power per element. They also cost 1 unit inch per xsize, and 6 CP per xsize.
You are like a man who fires gunshots at the barn, then paints a target around the biggest cluster of hits and claims to be a sharpshooter.

You don't need a special creation to modify heavies like this.  You can use creation mods to add +1 power at the cost of 1U".

Giving the figs a physical power pack is just icing on the cake - a kanonical reason for the creation mod.  Also, it sounds like they blow up if you shoot them?  Seems like a worthy cause to me.

That's how I've always done it. Just say it's bigger.
There's a dick joke in there somewhere.
