Default TimJims Top Trumps (40k)

ok... this idea came from the WE NEED SUpER HEAVIES THREAD or something :P go find it...

ok now that your back lets get started..

i'm thinking lets do some TO top trumps!

if you don't know the basics of top trumps here they are
- each player gets an equal amount of cards from the shuffled deck, you place these face down in front of you
-decide who goes first
-each player draws his/her top card, and who evers turn it is picks one of the stats on there card, and compares this to the opponents card, if there's a tie (i can't remember i'll come back to tie..)
-whichever opponent wins gets both cards and places them at bottom of his/her pile
-the winning player then takes a turn, repeating the above steps
-the winner is whoever gets all of cards



naturally the first race done will be tau.. so we need to come up with..
-units
-the stat names, speed, armour, whatever
-the stats themselves
-the artwork, i'm hoping that we can produce that ourselves,
-the back of the card, will be TO themed,
-and whatever else you can think of..

i've got some top trumps we can use as a guide to how they are designed etc

so get to work chaps!


-------------------------------------------
update -27th dec
ok i've been working on some designs
front


and back


if anyone wants to join the team just say!

Yes but that means the average between BS and weapon str:

A marine would have 4

So would a tau

Not right >

so if they were against each other..

firewarrior

shooting--5
combat--2
accuracy--3
armour--3
speed--3

marine eg

shooting-4
combat-4
accuracy-4
armour-4
speed-4

they don't have to relate exactly, remember that we're just doing tau at moment, and some cards are way more powerful than others, as its completely random at what you get, so max stat is ten

Seems good:

This is how we should do the armour (so Armour value ten doesn't have to be 9 =p)

2+: 6
3+ 5
4+ 4
5+ 3
6 2

well we won't follow 40k stats, we'll use them as a guidline,

so for example, a firewarrior will have armour 3, a stealth suit 5, crisis suit 7, broadside 8, hammerhead 10, etc, i'll work on some other stats..

and it'd be nice to get some other people in on this..


so go spread the word minion! lol

If no one else is interested we should PM to each other.

And the problem with giving broadside 8 armour is what about worse armoured tanks " Hey my broadside beat your piranha" WTF!!!!!
