Robot Workshop
 

Okay, another new workshop, but this is my last one for a while, I promise!

Part of the reason I'm starting this up is that we're gonna be wrapping up a reevaluation on Mad Thinker shortly. For a long time, his general bustedness dictated what was and wasn't doable for an Android design, so reining him in is gonna open up a lot of design space! But the trade-off is that he'll be a bit less of an Android hub.

Some people have been disappointed about it being harder to put a robot army together, so I thought it would be worth firing up a workshop here to kick off some brainstorming - mainly with the goal of generating some new Android synergies to keep robo-dudes hitting the table, but designs for robot characters that aren't introducing any synergy are also welcome.

I've got a Monica Chang design here that probably qualifies, and I think japes has a DC inventor or two up his sleeve that'll fit here (which he may or may not want to share).

Here are the current Androids and Android Interactions, for reference.

We have at least on On Deck figure that likes having Androids around and the other two I could see are T.O. Morrow and Professor Ivo. I have a few write-ups hanging around that I could go through and post out here to see if anyone wants to grab onto any of it.

NAME = (HAMMERSTEIN)
SECRET IDENTITY =

SPECIES = (ANDROID)
UNIQUENESS = (UNIQUE HERO)
CLASS = (SOLDIER)
PERSONALITY = (PATRIOTIC)

SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 5

LIFE = 6

MOVE = 5
RANGE = 5
ATTACK = 4
DEFENSE = 5

POINTS = 250?


A.B.C. WARRIORS

You may only use this power if every remaining figure you control is an Unique Android Hero. When Hammerstein is destroyed or after taking a turn with Hammerstein, you may remove any unrevealed order markers from the cards of any figures you control and place them on the cards of any figures you control.

COMBAT HAMMER

When Hammerstein attacks an adjacent figure with a normal attack, add one automatic skull to the result. If Hammerstein wounds an an adjacent figure with a normal attack, roll an unblockable attack die against the defending figure.

BATTLE HARDENED
If there is at least 1 Wound Marker on this card, the most wounds Hammerstein can receive from an attack is one.

Awesome. Mini ideas?

That is the bad part. There were metal minis but apparently they are no longer in production. :(

Re: Robot Workshop
 
That is a bummer. He's got a very specific look, too (and I imagine the other ABC Warriors are similarly stylized).

Re: Robot Workshop
 
Yeah, Soundwarp helped with a few suggestions for mods. Blackheart looks possible, as well as Deadlock. I was holding out for the metal minis and now that it seems like a possibility, they are no longer available.

I think this may have something to do with Rebellion acquiring 2000AD rights, not sure.
Hopefully they come back. Johnny Alpha (Strontium Dog) has new figures, so I am hopeful. I believe that is Mongoose.

Re: Robot Workshop
 
Definitely keep us updated if there are any developments on the minis for them - if they get a new run of minis, I might snatch em up before they have a chance to go out of production again.

On A.B.C. Warriors, the power, did you want him to be able to jettison his OMs and put them on a different card when he gets destroyed? That would require some wording tweaks.

Honestly I do not know what I was going for there. I guess I was just trying for a non-bonding, non-attack-boosting power.
He leads a group of seven robots generally. He is the pure essence of soldier/leader type.
Very much Captain America or Duke from GI Joe in robot form.

The OM stuff is cool, but it would probably be stronger if there were some Android sidekicks or something.

The OM rearrangement definitely has kind of a 'super tactician' vibe to it.

I got this guy in a random set of Clix. Never heard of him before, but he's a giant screw-off robot so I'm into it.

Other robots I'd want to work on;
-The Metal Men
-Chemo (Is he a robot?)
-Death's Head
-More Ultrons (Other models, AoU, Phalanx Leader, etc)
-Viv Vision
-Victor Mancha
-Machine Man (regular or Nextwave)
-Super-Adaptoid
