>newfags can't rock raidBut seriously bros what happened to the Lego soul?
It's astonishing that Lego doesn't have their own strong ttrpg. Instead we're stuck with Brikwars and MFZ.Also surprised they didn't forcefully buy up Minecraft back in 2012 and tweak it to make it more Lego.The mid to high income white cuckolds that make up the bulk of Lego's consumer base would have eaten that shit up, even before D&D 5e made roleplaying cool for mid-grade actors.
>>88284383>But seriously bros what happened to the Lego soul?D*sney happened. St*r W*rs happened first and made them realize licensing was a goldmine that soulful original themes couldn't hope to match, then D*sney bought St*r W*rs and started levying draconian demands on Lego, such as the cancellation of Bionicle G2 in order to not compete with constraction TFA dolls. After years of this, we have arrived at the point where half their themes are just D*sney licenses.
>>88284464So Disney is gonna be buying up a shriveled Lego after forcing them to cancel all of their OC some time in the near future.God, I fucking hate Americans.
>>88284485A terrifying thought. But you know the rabid house of mouse legions will beg for that takeover.
>>88284485One cannot absolve the Danes for cucking out, as is their nature. Nobody's forcing them to make pride parade sets or Queer Eye for the Straight Guy tie ins, to put amputees and vitiligo in their original sets, they do that all on their own.
>>88284452>Instead we're stuck with Brikwars and MFZ.DID SOMEBODY SAY BRIKWARS?!>>88284464>After years of this, we have arrived at the point where half their themes are just D*sney licenses.And somebody doesn't clearly doesn't remember Ninjago or know about Monkey Kid.

>>88284464I was just thinking about how if it wasn't for Yidsney manipulating copyright law anyone could just make the classic sets and we could buy new copies of them now for cheap.

Bow down puny human peasants, my base is a flying tank. Magnet gripper for your missiles, lasers for everything else, and lander with Fast for objective snatching. I don't even need the giant laser engine capital ship or even attack craft wings, this'll do me juuuuust fine.Oh God UFO bros everything costs so many points now. All the firepower in the world doesn't really matter if your whole force gets shot down turn one. Please don't tell me the solution is drone spam, its so boring.
>>88284673>It's a light vehicle.Its a medium, however it does have most of the stats of a light. >You can literally take it out with Infantry on orange transparent skis> "X is OP"> "But you can beat them with X so they can't be OP" ... In any case the "you can destroy it easily" answer isn't valid since it can be parked anywhere and shoot still, and you can (mostly) block stealth access to it by dropping ice bricks. And it will be the first thing going every time its brought on the table.
>>88284763>Bow down puny human peasantsTHE ADU DEPLOYS!
>>88284801God, I hate nu-lego.
>>88284763I mean, this is a game where many capital ships have 2~4 shots a turn. This is a medium+ flyer with what, 8? At least its yellow lasers, not blue or red.

YOU NOW HAVE THIS SONG STUCK IN YOUR HEADAGAINhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgLAjh-fT_U
>>88285323And EVERYTHING is AWESOME!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woiWU18sEFM
>>88284819Yeah, its usually 8 or 6+2 rerolls, depending on your set up with the robot crewman. The problem is that unless you deploy right in the middle of the enemy you can't bring them all to bear at once, and if you DO do that then even with the heavy armour you get shot to bits by your opponent's entire army because there's no other targets unless you're playing at silly points values. The Flagship is a better choice most of the time because while the weapons aren't anywhere near as good for how big it is you can warpspeed zoom between terrain pieces to take shots. Or you take the coward's way out and flood the field with cheap flying drones, like a filthy Sp*rian or bl*ctkronI did see one good fix for the Mothership which was to let it do a blast off attack once a game. You get a chance to repair some of the damage from early turn shooting, and your opponent has to think a bit more carefully about whether to stay in close and risk being roasted or redeploy to safety and potentially let the Mothership get away.>>88284992At least its not Explorians. "Oh its a science team, its fluffy that they have the best shields and engines and a sod-off giant gun on their capital ship".
>>88283469For the last time you grog, nobody plays Technic format it's been abandoned for years and everyone just uses variations of the one good army in it.
>>88285452>Technic format it's been abandoned for years and everyone just uses variations of the one good army in it.Duck?

>>88284878Oh my god I should try to actually scrounge up all the parts of my old Exo Force sets and reassemble them. Probably impossible by now, parts get redistributed all too easily with two brothers, but I long for mech suits now. If I could go back in time I wouldn't create world peace, I would buy literally all of the Exo Force and Bonkles sets
>>88285508>I long for mech suits nowWell Marvel is doing their own version of the Nexo Knight suits...
>>88285092Paradox him bro. Every time he uses a rewind it makes at least one of your units a "fixed time point" that can't be messed with that turn (and unless something's really changed you get to decide which one that is). Put it on something that can get in really close and he has to choose between taking massive damage from paradox by taking out your guy now or massive damage over the next couple of turns from your guy just murdering the shit out of him. And if he rewinds again, guess what - you now have two fixed time points, and so on and so on. Threetrain's a noob trap build, because it looks really powerful on paper but unless you're careful it failure cascades really easily. That said, I agree its a terribly unbalanced faction. Anyone who brings a train, two tunnelators and a warper to a normal game should be beaten with a stick mercilessly and without remorse.
>>88285593That's a lego model? I legitimately cannot recognize half the pieces on it.Now step aside, the GOAT is here.
>>88285467Ow, right in the nostalgia. I hadn't realised it was that short lived though.
Oh, don't mind me, I'm just quietly over here, dominating all ground action for the better part of two decades.
I have this memory of a set that was some sort of ....collaboration(?) of LEGO and K'NEX. Or was that all a fever dream?
>>88285658They're just Blacktron but sacrifice firepower for durability. Sure they're great at holding objectives, but nearly everything except the hilariously overpriced Voyager hits like a wet noodle.
>>88285612>Now step aside, the GOAT is here.You can't even move your legs!Kids these days complain their mechs have no movable KNEES!
>>88285658Over three decades now, but still M-Chads are the best.
>>88285659Are you thinking of Znap? It was a very short-lived attempt at k'nex in 1998-9. These anons posted some>>88285467 >>88285626https://brickset.com/sets/theme-ZnapSpeaking of, what happened to k'nex? Is it still around?

>>88285813God I loved all these sets, except the really big neon green one which luckily I never received.>>88285447These motherfuckers too, had the absolute raddest minifig pieces.
>>88283469Hey, mind if I proxy?
>>88285813Hey as a Blacktron player. I'll be the first to admit Guardians are bit OP. It's got a lot of Firepower and Sensors for a very competitive cost. But our Capital Ship doesn't measure up against other factions', even if it is one of the cheapest.And our Outpost is one of the best, but we have to pay through the nose for the mandatory Landing Pad.
But seriously you motherfucks, is there a Lego-based TTRPG or war game system out there? Because this thread is making me want to bust my remaining box (gave 2/3s of my collection to my cousins but kept the Good Shit (TM))
>>88285711I still think it's hilarious that the Megacore Magnetizer in *any* other faction would be the most broken nonsense in the game, but with M-Tron's abysmal damage output it can do very little besides squat its fat arse onto an objective and then never ever die.
>>88285919>is there a Lego-based TTRPG or war game system out there?DID SOMEBODY SAY BRIKWARS?!?!
>>88285604> paradoxMan, I miss Lego Universe. And I never even played it.
>>88285612>GOATI dunno about that. Mechanically interesting and a real gamechanger fr its time, but it got outclassed in more or less all aspects in short order. And those terrain restrictions are really rough.
>>88285447Explorians are a bitch to deal with, but they're hella expensive and you have to bend your entire list around it to make it work. I much prefer that as opposed to dealing with a swarm of screaming retards with transparent orange chainsaws. Who are super cheap and tougher than you think. And god forbid you roll Ice Planet on the Random Worlds table. You may as well kiss all your Ground and Hover units goodbye.
>>88285730>Speaking of, what happened to k'nex? Is it still around?They're still a thing, but still overshadowed by Lego.None of my nephews know about it. Last time I even saw a set was my little brother's Lost Mines collection.
Man, I wish I had friends. I would play the fuck out of Brikwars just as an excuse to buy and build lego as an adult.
>>88286043>ExploriansActually, I've been meaning to ask about those, since I'm still new to the game. I've managed to work out most groups' gameplay theme, like Blacktron's staggering firepower for relatively cheap, Space Police's elite profiles or M-Tron's seven gorillion ways of damage mitigation and repairs, but with Explorians I am kinda stumped. They're not generalists like Futurians, but they don't really seem to fit any other niche.
>>88285919>>88286008But for serious, look up the 2010 Brikwars rules since that's the last time Mike gave a shit about actually balancing, and you can use this handy Stat Card Generator!https://westnordost.de/statcard/>>88286023>Man, I miss Lego Universe. And I never even played it.Unfortunately, it also over inflated Mike's Ego, so he became the very think he sought to destroy...>>88286084>Man, I wish I had friends. I would play the fuck out of Brikwars just as an excuse to buy and build lego as an adult....You need Friends for that?I just occasionally force my family to play with me, hence building a Pony Army when my Brother wanted Gandalf leading Klingons...Clearly he did not realize how hard Mega Blox/Construx Klings were to get at that point!
So, how pissed would you guys be if i brought my D*sney budget Tac Pod Droid army to rumble? It's a horde with lots of battle ready units, and suppresion fire stopping you from taking actions, but it folds to EMPs and force fields, the ability to summon more droids from mothership sucks, and the close combat without grenade armed expensive units just won't work. I can hard counter the UFO guy, because emp in his army costs an arm and a leg, and any army without forcefield buyout is at least 50/50 but orange chainsaw is my worst matchup as usual. It's mid/bottom tier, but some people just refuse to play vs D*sney shit and i cannot blame them (at least it's not another trooper commando). I already was told grey/grey looks like shit, but it's an official color scheme, should i add some red?
>>88286105They're kind of "specialised" generalists. As >>88285447 says they've got the best engines and shields, their Firepower is no slouch although it can be pretty swingy, and they even have a couple of half decent options for Melee.They're very forgiving of mistakes as they've got the Engines to get out of dodge, and the Shields to mitigate incoming damage (though not nearly as much a M-Trons). What's most scary is a seasoned Explorian player who uses the Engines to their utmost and can run circles around you if played right.

>>88286239>What does he have to do with Lego Universe (the mmo?)Well supposedly it was inspired by his Lego Artwork, and then they hired him onto the Game as an Art Director before shifting him over to Lego's American Office Art Director, before laying him and the American Offices off.
>>88286006That just speaks of good game design. There has to be a least a few Ground units that can hold against a Chainsaw Horde.
>>88286274Man, that sucksMaybe he’s allowed a little gas inhalation
>new guy comes to store>says it's his first game, lets keep it casual>i agree, take out my Basil the Bat/Villa cauldron bulid, start placing figs>he slaps this on the tablewwyd?
>>88283571There's the rub. EMP is actually pretty good vs Ice Warriors. It switches off the Chainsaws, and can delay Nuke launches. But it's only really Space Police that have good access to affordable EMP (even then they're paying for their elite profiles).
>>88286299>Maybe he’s allowed a little gas inhalationDo not weep for Mike, he has plenty of experience getting laid off by the Lego Group, and knows how to get by freelancing by drawing people's Carsonas and what not.And despite DECADES of "Game Development Experience" at this point, he is NEVER going to be done editing the [Current] Edition Brikwars Rulebook.
>>88286330And yes Explorians have access to affordable EMP as well. But their somewhat random damage faction rule means it can come back to haunt them. Sure turning off the Chainsaws isn't that hard, unless they take the Enhanced Dampening upgrade, but that's a bit pricey for something on a throwaway unit that could potentially be useless. But you can bet your ass they're putting on their Nukes just in case. And that's a tough Tech roll even without the Explorians randomness.

>>88286665No board can discuss its designated topics well. This is a pretty universal and ironic truth. Topics get discussed to death, which leads to stagnation, consensus, boredom and trolling. Generals suffer the same issues, but hyperfocussed on one specific aspect of the greater Board's interest and with far greater chance of a small number of potentially insane people dominating conversation. On another board, or even just outside a general, the issues aren't "settled" - anons on /v/, say, might well have fought the console wars to a bitter standstill, but something like the deep sea is still ripe for discussion in a way that isn't true on /an/. Something similar happens on /v/ vs /tg/ on Vampire the Masquerade - they generally come at the World of Darkness RPG from fondness for Bloodlines, here discussion is more focussed and shaped by whatever is going on in the general. Its a similar deal with /toy/ and lego vs /tg/ and lego, I should imagine - everyone here's had some interest in lego but come at the topic from a different angle (e.g. as an imaginary wargame/rpg) than someone who follows releases, or has discussed brick types to death or is in a feud with some guy who only collects duplo or whatever (sorry, I'm guessing what the lego general threads are like).On Old /tg/, Traditional Games was the hook on which to justify dicking about as much as possible, much like cars were to Top Gear. In this way, anything and everything was potentially on-topic. This thread is a real throwback and thank God for it.

>>88287120Mining laser is very good, but has a super short range. Drill and Rock Monster are CC beasts, but the Drill suffers from the same variance as Explorators shooting and Rock Monster has to rely on it's "Deep Strike" to close the gap. And the Toughness is relative, great Armour but AP weapons can bring it down to managable levels and less than average Shields. Also more vulnerable to Tech attacks than even Ice Warriors, excepting the Rock Monster.
>>88287080>or has discussed brick types to death or is in a feud with some guy who only collects duplo or whatever (sorry, I'm guessing what the lego general threads are like).Man, if only.

>>88287557ah yes, I remember the Duplo incident. I must have left before the cock cage one. To be fair, considering the Gungan Sub story they were just following tradition.
as a kid, i got my legos from my neighbor, with all the pieces jumbled up in a cardboard box in a beautifully unidentifiable mixit's so cathartic seeing some familiar pieces in this thread and seeing how differently i used them compared to the official sets because i had no preconceptionsa shame i don't have my legos anymore, i would've loved to post images and have you all comment on them
>>88284383>Oh no what happened to our sets in ugly colors made out of five giant pieces?Lego finally ran some focus groups and grew some taste.Always amazes me when people show intense nostalgia for the point when something turned to shit. Next you'll talk about post-movie G1 Transformers.
>>88287557I can do you one better since it doesn't involve degeneracy yet is something I'll carry longer than any anal stuffing or chastity belting. When I was a kid I was playing with Duplos when the friend I was going to have a playdate with pulled up with his mom. So excited was little anon that he toddler-waddled his way out the front door and down the porch steps to meet them mid-build, block in hand, and in that excitement I tripped, falling down the few remaining steps. The landing itself wasn't so bad, except my block-holding hand smacked right into my forehead, embedding the Duplo right in my eyebrow.To this day, I have a perfect Lego peg-hole scar on my face.
>>88282893Okay so I have a very important question regarding BrickWars. Can you play the funky fools of picrel?I don't believe they ever got released as part of a physical set, but I'd be delighted to play them with some 3d printed heads or just 4x4/1x1 bricks with faces painted on as proxies

>>88292805It doesn't cause thumping sounds and vibrations. Remember Jurassic Park??
>>88293538Those two fence units at going to carry the match, especially post- movement phase
>>88292966> insectoidsCame very close to being a S Tier faction given how much firepower, speed and Victory Point scoring rules they have, but their low health and the release of the Pull Insectoid Leg/Wings Special Rule for mechs and Pincer equipped units, at a time those had become ubiquitous, really drive the nail in that coffin. The Spider is another example, like the Megacore Magnetizer, of an otherwise absolutely OP unit, if only it wasnt stuck in its faction. Possibly the best Electronic Warfare rules in the game.
>>88293985You're right, and if more was made of electronic warfare I think they'd be top tier, but fragile as it is the Sonic Stinger still punches well above its weight class. Its no Warp Wing, but frankly what is? The Insectoids are an interesting counterpart to the Spyrians in a way, with a similar way of using stealth but much more mobile. That whole period where they were moving away from mandatory traditional bases and into factions based around constant movement was full of interesting experiments that were never proper followed up on.

REMEMBER WHAT THEY TOOK FROM YOU
>>88302354>Cyber Strikers was clearly the best, because you could punch your siblings with an extendable rubber mallet.I am pretty sure that is exactly what we did
>>88302512Don't make this weird anon, yes it got nerfed but even with the points increase its still a pro-pick for most lists without a mothership. Medium armour, Explorian tier shields, and solid all round weapons for, what, the only real support craft in the list? If they ever hit my beloved Warp Wing with the nerf bat I'm burning down Denmark. Its balanced, I tell you! Balanced!
>>88302512>>88302719While we're on the subject of UFOs, this Idea is pretty cool. I think it could do with a few more of the alien face prints on smoother bigger plates to break up the grey, but solid effort. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/143a7f7d-a097-40a3-be77-912eed3cb4a5It would only be usable at silly value points games, mind you. Like "Blacktron Shipyard", "Explorian Satellite" or "Magnet: yes" level silly. God alone knows how many nukes you could fit in an Ice Planet list at that level.
Damn these Lego System sets look kinda ugly... some individual lego peices included do look quite pretty for your own builds though. Still, I would prefer pic related, if the theme is some explorer, from a miner to a scientist. This is what I had.
>>88302892See, to me that looks really busy and I don't like the colours, but if it was done in the Rock Raider's cooler turqoise and darker browns it could loook really nice.

>>88303559Have you not heared? Lego decided to push for the 4->>8830294612 age demographic
>>88294849Eh, it depends. If the enemy is running a mixed faction list the Space Police can only apply their Warrant special to one of the factions present. Plantside Police errata clarifies that their jurisdiction is their chosen battlefield, so they can apply their Warrant special to every faction in play.But against a homogeneous list? Yeah, Space Police dominate. Faster, harder hitting, the Warrant applies to the whole list. It hurts.

>>88306483There's always one of you at the FLGS, we play Paradox format as such. Doesn't matter much because Medieval vs Space is skewed as fuck, the best unit you have vs ships is picrel and it still dies way too quickly, Wizard is great but its also your best shooting and every time throw fireballs you aren't casting Fly on one of your knights. At least use Cowboys and Musket sets if you want to play pseudo-historicals.
>>88306483>>88307774>they don't run ofnir with a viking detachment and ally in the Guardian to abuse Heart of the Shield of Ages' aura effectfilthy casuals can only blame themselves for not running optimal meta builds. Having invulnerable saves on a high armor monster unit is ridiculously good against ranged weapons this edition, absolutely ganks any of the scifi vehicles and flyers
>>88308957Alternately, play Fright Knights. Cheap and cheerful skeletons that only have to get lucky once to spawn on board a ship and ghosts generally ignore everything except some shields (even if stricly speaking you have to ally in another Knight faction to get them). Hexes aren't as flashy as wizard spells but synergise really well and can basically turn even a bowman group into Spyrians on crack with how annoying they can be. Green AND Black dragons for anything you just need to die this turn, with the option to upgrade a Green to a Windship to truly ruin someone's day. And to top it off, two top tier modular bases. What more could you ask for?Answer: Be history's greatest monster and ally in some Time Twisters. You WILL be beaten up, and rightly so, but the memory of your opponent's expression will be giving you sick pleasure for years afterwards.

>>88311896>I want a game where every release comes with its own stat sheet.Brikwars was originally designed around DOING that, hence starting with a Sized-based Construction Point formula so your giant MOCs could be balanced against Minifigures.But "MATH HARD" and Mike is a GRAPHIC DESIGNER, so he decided to "streamline" the game by cutting most of the math out, basically throwing all balance out in favor of just having equal sized hordes/hoards of dudes being Minifig fightn' men swashbuckling it up with one another."15 (now 20?) years of Game Design Expertise" my ass...Case in point, I have stated gigantic collectors sets up.

>>88309320>skeletonsAnd ghosts being so good is why I run this whenever I have the points available. Pretty costly but it deals with lower Undeads like it's nothing. Mummies and vampires will still wreck you tho.
For anyone interested in Space Lego as an RPG / other tabletop setting, I still fondly remember this thread from a few years back https://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/2019/67744810/All the 90s spaces sets fit together pretty coherently. Would something like Genesys work?
>>88313825>Mummies and vampires will still wreck you tho.As is only right and proper for his magnificence. It still takes forever to get a proper doom train going because of the way summoning/curse rules work though. If you can get the bus or similar fast hitter to the objective and out again before most of the bases get revealed and the undead wake up, you only really have to deal with snakes, scorpions and the occasional mercenary adventurer.>Mummy-Man since '98, even losing is fun when you can place a sphinx right on your opponent's escape route with shifting sands. You'd be surprised how well they stack up even against modern lists.

>>88319519>Btw, think people would be cool with a SW Clone-based Army or do they generally prefer shit from legos og stuff?Clone Wars Armies form the basis for 50% of Brikwars Factions; Star Wars does supply a steady stream of the Body Armor prints and Helmets to make a Sci-fi Fighting Force after all.They're such a staple that I made my personal Faction of Battle Droids an innumerable force of weak incompetent mooks to serve as easily established Op For; BRIKTOID AUTOMATA!

Still have my Hover tank, 6 wheeled tank (unless that's be size overkill), and gunship.
>>88283553And there go my nipples again
>>88318264They didn't get banned, per se, but they do have a reputation from when they were new and since then got whacked with the nerf hammer so badly you barely see them these days. They were originally intended as a counterpart/foil to Explorians, so they both rely almost exclusively on ships rather than static bases and they're intended to be very mobile compared to most of the other Spacers. Where the Explorians focus on shields and speed, the Zotaxians (the UFO guys) have more traditional heavy armour and much nastier weaponry. The UFOs kind of became the "second best" at everything for a while, which made them really good at taking on all-comers. Explorians were quick, but with some builds almost even (especially with the UFO Flagship's warp drive); Blacktron and Ice Planeteers had better weapons, but not that much stronger and certainly not so many unless they went full beam or nuke spam; M-Tron and Rock Raiders will not be beaten on regular armour (especially after that Hard Hat update, holy shit), but unless you're regularly facing armour piercing its excessive. Combine being as forgiving as Explorians to a new player with some infamous min-max netbuilds like "Mother's Home", "Four on the Floor" and "Sinistar" and they ended up ranking high in every tournament for a good few years. Obviously something had to be done, but the devs definitely went too far - on paper they're still pretty good, but they're a lot slower, are much shorter range and MASSIVELY more expensive. You usually end up with one or two big fire magnets gingerly sliding around terrain pieces if you play them how you're "supposed to", or you take as many one-droid Droneships as you can and annoy the enemy to death, and either way its just not as fun to play. There's a couple of fun play test rules out there that give them back stuff like Blast Off that make them much more viable without being too OP.

>>88334539I remember loving the first couple gens of slime creatures, actually. (Prior to your image, I think) Smaller dragons, dinosaurs, and even robots and horror creatures all with interchangeable parts. Brilliant. It was a shame to leave the original setting/lore behind but the slime gimmick went along with some legit toys. I was always fascinated by how Mega Bloks made the dragons models in such high-quality plastic too, their lego knockoff bricks would break in a stiff breeze but I never had a single dragon component snap. I think the association with Mega Bloks itself held Dragons back a lot, they were good enough toys that if a more... reputable company had sold them I think they'd have had way more cultural impact. These days you can barely even torrent the films, they're just forgotten.
Because of this thread I decided to buy some Lego instead of Goys Workshop soulless plastic crack. Neat.

Are Throwbots something that only plague my LGS? It doesn't matter what terrrain comes up, whether you try to keep them at long range or get into melee with the bastards, they had something that covered them. Sure you can't play that many of them but they don't seem to give a shit. I don't see anybody else mentioning them so clearly there's a counter I'm not seeing.
>>88349386>bring a full stack of Turbos>their ability to switch between speed, rally and circuit modes means that they can ignore pretty much all terrain modifiers>never have to slow down>if you strategically place your nuclear fuel supplies you can effectively move your guys across the map multiple times in a single turn>laugh as I drift around my enemies foreverThe checkered flag is forever, Anon.
>>88349386there are like what, 4 throwbots on the battlefield? With 2 hq choices? Just focus on the hq, or use any effect that weakens their chance to damage, also most of them are worse in close combat, so try to keep them close. What army do you use?
>no other Stingray playersI don't care if they aren't meta, they've got character. I could never get a Sea Scorpion, but a Stingray Stormer serves as an incredible anchor while the Sea Creepers get work done.
I'm waiting for the day that someone brings a dinosaur army to a game.
>>88349808I play Bionicle, specifically the list that lets me go One Man Army with Axonn. Against most lists, they just can't hit the big guy hard enough to hurt him before he gets into close combat and demolishes whatever he's in with. And Throwbot guy uses the two that are close combat monsters. Whoever statted up Fire and Jungle like that needs their heads examined, shit at close combat my ass.
>>88349298Any of Bionicle's fire toa can cover the battlefield with persistent flame templates to shut down his infantry resurrection and deny objectives. If he spams vehicles like an asshole, respond with an X-wing or three.
>>88349918why would you not pick either Makuta or Bohrok swarm if throwbots give you problemsthey literally counter them so hard, either by Kraata summon focus, or by Lehvak/Kohrak focused bulids. i assumed you're running a minifig army, not a one man army through
>>88348770I recall it being a bit too big to be proper playable. Once you can't easily lift a toy and swing it around, it's doomed to become a doll house/scenario.>>88348873There's 10210 and the Piratees of the Carribean line had two ships as well.
>>88304770SLIMY SLUG HOLE
>>88350193>10210Yeah something like that, I meant just giving it another launch like they did with the pirate ship via that Ideas set.
>>88349976Bionicles are an extremely tall army, you'll probably only be able to afford like 5 units with the points you get in an average game, and a Garmadon backed up by a Skull Truck can dismantle them. Although the X-Wings might be able to handle it, Star Wars have a few answers in their vehicles. A-Wings, TIE fighters, flying droids, as long as it's quick because the Skulkins do not have very good anti-air or air-to-air.
>>88349386Bionicles overtook them almost completely, but from playing them myself back in the day what you need to do is a) make sure they don't get access to their preferred terrain pieces, so their discs don't synergise b) use cover as much as possible so you don't get hit and c) don't let them get close enouh to combine. A) and b) are pretty obvious, and you know doubt know about already, but its worth keeping an eye out because there's a few that can pop off specific factions - the flying purple energy bug can pop off almost anything, from crystals all the way up to some shields. The developers built on the lessons they learned from Slizers, so if you know how deal with them then you're half way there, but they have far, far better ranged options (especially if they're playing with the full range of discs, which is like if your average Toa could swap masks multiple times mid-game). Final point is combines - if you play too passively, it gives your opponent time to gather up and spend a turn or two upgrading, which not only repairs the individual unit's damage but also means they become one super unit with all the synergies and weapons. Yes. Its super unbalanced, even with the minimum turns spent doing nothing but transforming. The solution is to use superior mobility and make camping in terrain a nightmare. On the former, remember that they have at most six individual units even at stupid sizepoint games, and they don't move that much quicker than a standard trooper outside of their preferred terrain. On the latter, most armies have at least some options there, from Spyrian signal jamming, to Raider boreholes and demo charges, to a good old fashioned Mass Grave/Haunting (seriously, I don't know if its intentional, but almost any of Team Castle can rock these guy's worlds). Good luck to you, I hope this helps.>>88349581You may drift, anon, but do you RIDE
>>88349849These guys came out when I was at that age when you're trying to be really grown up. "Oh no, its OK, I think I might be going off Lego. Its not something people at my age should bother with, so I don't want them."I wanted them. I covet them still.
>>88348496Yes, the order came down to quietly kill it before it was even on shelves. It was strangled in the cradle. You can look it all up, the promotional plans were all much more extensive than what was eventually implemented.It's a shame, the Masters at least were great sets.
>>88350485>You may drift, anon, but do you RIDEHell yeah Almost makes you wish they'd made up some insane backstory for these two like they did with Bonkles later
>>88284383The Rock Raiders vehicles are impractical as fuck but I still love them. My headcanon is that there is an invisible glass (like Star Trek's transparent aluminum) in-between the beams on the brown window cages (pic rel)
>>88351455Always imagined them with windows too, them being open is a bit nonsensical, especially when you consider they also have a helicopter.
