Ijad Black Behemoths Company (2p scale)

Postby Artasid » Mon Feb 04, 2019 5:33 pm

Inspired by Starflowers 2p Frames thread, I decided to make a company of 2p Ijad Behemoths, with some slight changes.

The Black Behemoths are an Ijad Brotherhood that operates in the same fashion as human mercenaries. They regard other Ijadhi like distant cousins and will not hesitate to get into conflicts with them is the situation warents it. They do not seem to have the same religious beliefs as other know Ijadhi clans, but no one has been able to decipher the meaning behind their behavior. Should the rewards meet their needs, they will accept any contract regardless who the client is.

Individual units:

Charger

Charger: d6Rh d6Rh Anti-Frame Saw, d6B d6B Double Extra Armor Plates, d6G Quad Mobility, d8G No Ranged Weaponry

Unlike most companies I build, I even went so far as to make some stations for them as well. A bit odd, but I like them

*Repair Bay House Rule
This is a house rule that a friend and I created for the Repair Bay feel free to use it:

At the start of your turn, If only one (1) of your frames is within HtH range with the bay, and there is no enemy unit within Direct Fire range or closer, you may choose to attempt to repair one (1) system to that frame. This Frame cannot take any action during this turn before or after the repair attempt. Declare which system you wish to repair and roll a D6 that matches the color of the system you are attempting to repair (Red for any d6Rh d6Rd d6Ra system, Blue for d6B, Yellow for d6Y. and Green for d6G. You can NOT repair d8Rr) If you roll a 6 then you have repaired the system and attach it to your frame. Any other roll fails the attempt.
You may only make one (1) repair attempt per turn.

That is the basic's for the house rule. It may need some refining, but it seems to work when we tried it. Try it yourselves and share your opinions.
I hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

Those are so lovingly cute!

Nice complement of systems, simple and effective!

I really like like the designs, but the office building feels a little bit too small here...

Okay. This isn't constructive criticism. Not everyone plays at the same scale so what isn't useful for you may be great for someone else. While you may think Black is boring, there is a reason for the fashion terms "Basic Black" and "Little Black Dress". Keep this in mind going forward. Consider this a formal warning.

Thank you VitorFaria, but again, Starflower deserves the shout out, I merely made some slight changes to the legs of the overall design of his 2p build. As for the systems, I tend to go by the 3+1+1 style of play, 3 Soldiers, 1 Long Range, 1 Spotter and/or Close Range. It's a decent formula that seems to work with me most of the time.

True, the building is smaller than I should have made it. In all honesty it wasn't until after I bricked it when I realized it wasn't up to the scale I was working with. I'll have to correct it.

As stated, these are set to 2p scale, so they are supposed to be small. It was also a chance to see how creative I could get using such a small design. A lot of times when I make frames, they tend to become bigger than I was going for and it takes me a few attempts to correct the size. As for the color choice, I was really limited on what is currently available to me. I do agree that a mostly black colored frame is somewhat difficult to take clear pictures of, but I used what I had available to me to make them as clear as possible. And though black is not a 'flashy' color, it's one that I have no problem using.

If the scale is really 2p, the building isn't that out of scale. It would be a small building, but still a believable one.

19.8m tall buildings exist around here.
