Army of Zenbrickadi

Postby VitorFaria » Wed Jul 19, 2017 9:05 pm

For more context, click here. Basically, we all have that friend that likes to play with minifigs, mostly because he/she doesn't have much else. Feeling that those shouldn't feel left out of the fun, I thought we should make the use of minifigs feel "more official", keeping the goal of accessibility in mind.

Sorta inspired by Macross, that do have mecha sized humanoids stomping around, I made some.

Used Stormtrooper bodies because I happened to have eight of those. Tried to give each a personality and a diverse look while keeping somewhat of a group identity.

Interesting. A friend and I talked about using minifigs as game pieces ages ago. Nothing ever came of it though.

I swear you had a game involving minifigs in the past, but I might have been confused by your games involving those Gundam figs.

I dig this idea and I think even using some battledroids or the general zod armour set could still give you a mech feel. And for the weapons there is always brick arms and related third party assessory retailers if you want to go that route. I've also seen power armour builds that incorporates minifigure parts that with the right head can become a mech if you so choose.

Also I do think bases are a good choice with this idea seeing as minifigure parts can be hard to take off and reattach at times. With a base of the right kind, you can use colour coded studs placed on the base to represent the weapons and systems.

I have a idea/plan (among many) to make a "mutant" faction, centered around hulk mini figs and or other monsterlike ones I find and aquire. They could be played as a conpany in themselves or I've toyed with the idea of using them as neutral hostiles controlled by dice or certain triggers.

Interesting idea, and welcome to the Hangar!

I agree with VitorFaria, that is an interesting idea. And welcome too :) After all are not the Titans in Attack on Titan basically an organic mech? Having a "monstrous" creature on the battlefield may not be completely out of realm of space exploration, science, aliens, and colonization.

I also remember seeing someone in the MFZ community make a company out of monsterlike minifigs, and they looked really cool. The army of Zenbrickadi looks pretty cool too.
