I only see two or maybe three Lawmasters in a Judge build and they can carry a passenger, so they may be able to slow roll the big guns effectively.

We need a wording tweak, because while I can see why you're translating things that way, that's not the intention.

From the rules:

Quote:

Instead of moving normally with an Army Card you control, if one of the figures from that card occupies the Driver space for a Vehicle, you may move that Vehicle. You may only move a Vehicle once each player turn.
That isn't intended to mean that only one vehicle can be moved during a player's turn, but rather that each individual vehicle can only be moved once.

I'm going to tweak to the following:

Quote:

Instead of moving normally with an Army Card you control, if one of the figures from that card occupies the Driver space for a Vehicle, you may move that Vehicle. You may only move each Vehicle this way once during each player turn.
The "this way" also covers that you should still be able to throw it with Magneto or whatever after driving it.

Here's my edits on the Sports Car. Target points are windows.
Quote:

NAME = Sports Car
DESIGNATION = Vehicle Destructible Object

COVER = Partial
OCCUPANCY = 2
SIZE/HEIGHT = Large 3

POINTS = 100

LIFE = 3

MOVE = 8
DEFENSE = 4

HIT AND RUN 11
After moving this Sports Car one or more spaces, you may choose one adjacent figure not occupying this vehicle. Roll the 20-sided die. If you roll 11 or higher, the chosen figure receives one wound and this vehicle receives one wound if the chosen figure has the Super Strength special power. Hit and Run may only be used once per turn. After using Hit and Run, you may continue this Sports Carís movement, if possible.

Hmm, it never came up in testing, but I don't hate the idea that you could drive in such a way as to hurt another passenger. It's not unthematic.

I'm fine with these changes if folks prefer it this way, though. We will need unanimous Hero approval for these changes, of course.

It looks good but I want to finalize the vehicle rules first.

Agreed. Please look over the link in the OP when you have a chance and let me know of any issues you find! :-) I definitely want to make sure these are revised and edited appropriately before we enlist art here.

I was playing that wrong then and makes VDOs even better for the F4 and the Judges.
Not too worried as the cost adds up and you can lose a VDO.

Do you mean a figure? There are a couple options.
There is a Hot Wheels motorcycle that works for a more modern looking Lawmaster.
There is a mod for a Warhammer 40K Space Marine Bike if you want a classic looking Lawmaster.
I will post it up in my OS design thread tomorrow.

Yeah, I definitely had two Sports Cars going at a time in some of my Fan Four tests. It definitely wasn't overpowering, though. I think the best thing we did was dropping the stats of the Sports Car so drastically. It works so much better with the rules system this way (and a car should be a lot easier to smash than Batman in a superhero game).

Re: The Book of Draftable Vehicle Rules - Final Editing
 
While we’re in final editing, my suggestion is to split this up into a few rulebooks. Why not make Draftable DOs a separate thing from Vehicle DOs? And make Enclosed Structures a separate thing as well?

I like this Nobody guy. He has good ideas. We should keep him around.

Why don't we ask the art dept. what they're up for? :-)
@japes @Soundwarp SG-1 is that it for art, right now with Scapey out of the picture?

He's as cunning as his namesake, chap! :)

I think at least for the moment itís just me and japes yeah. Iíve never done a rulebook before, but Iím sure I can figure it out if I have to.

Re: The Book of Draftable Vehicle Rules - Final Editing
 
Rulebooks aren't done in Photoshop. It's inDesign or Illustrator, I can't remember which. I have the whole suite. You guys lay it out and come up with the art work and I'll do it however you want. If you want me to be picking out the artwork and such then I'll do one book.

Look at the Spell book rules for inspiration. That's the last one I did.
