hovercraft would be great, but one shot to the air balloon thingy would take them out, would be good if that part was armor plated and only a sniper on a roll of 11 or something would be able to hit in between the plates =)

...Hovercrafts don't use ballons. They use turbofans to push themselves off the ground.

The ballon like thing you seem to be refering to fills up with air and lifts the craft even further off the ground. A single hit from most weapons would do literally nothing.

Yes, but in the future, when turbofans are unavailable, we will tie balloons to our "viechels" and they will fly! :D

i knew they didn't use balloons but the 'skirting' keeps the air in, so one shot to it and the hovercraft would be slowed down, that would make for a great figurine (one with skirt working another with it deflated)

...how big of a hole are we talking about? A small bullet hole would do exactly nothing.

Yea, a big hole would hurt... just like with anything else. The main thing is that they would be vulnerable to most attacks because they have to do away with armor. Speed and firepower are their best defenses.

i would be so epic if you could you the 'handbrake move' once per game with a small/medium attack viechels, you would do i kind of power slide and sometimes shoot at the same time but you would have to roll 2D12 maybe 1D12 and if you roll too low you would lose control and spin off using scatter dice.

just a thought

also i wanna see a quad bike miniature too, but it has to look good or there is no point

Impact hits anyone? With the power slide you could reroll to hit or an extra d6.

On the Calvary debate, It is possible to put armor on a horse. Look up Horse Barding. They've done it in medieval times and could do it now.
