As some of you likely remember, a couple of months back I did some work trying to figure out the pricing on figures in the hopes of being able to create my own characters. I’ve done this for quite a few games in the past, and while I can’t promise I’ll perfect a formula soon, it’s something I intend to do eventually (I usually figure if I can get within 5% of the original costs on something, I’m usually doing pretty good.

In the case of Wasteland Warfare, I’ve heard that they don’t have a formula on their end and instead it’s more of a guestimating thing, that increases the chances that this will take a little while to work out a final version of this.

I had the privilege of getting to play a couple of games with a fellow wastelander yesterday and in my excitement I started playing around with some numbers. I feel like this latest attempt at creating a formula is much closer to the previous attempt.

Three of the seven models I ran were exact, three of the other four were only a single point off, and the last one was off by two.

So, what I did this time around was that I prioritized skills that are more important to the game rather than the core stats, though this affected the core stats.

Primary Skill: The primary combat skill of the model. In most cases longarms. I multiplied the attribute score times 3.

Secondary Skills: Health and Thrown Weapons. The attribute skill is multiplied by 2

All other Skills: All other attributes, no matter if, or what skills are associated with it, the number you see is the cost.

Armor:

Physical: Number X Itself. So a Physical Defense of one would cost 1 (1x1), a score of three would cost 9 (3x3), etc

Energy: Number you see is cost (It seems to me that the cost is largely baked into the weapons, but I don’t know for sure.)

Radiation: Only one model I ran had this, I priced it at the number you see.

Special Rules:

Only had a single model with a special rule on it, I priced it at 2 in this case.

What is posted above should be close enough to create some fairly basic characters, but I wouldn’t trust it for anything overly powerful or anything with a bunch of special rules related to it. But I’ll let you all be the judge, . . .

I suppose I should jump into the models I ran next:

I’ve glanced at the Sentry Bot as well but haven’t calculated things just yet. I can tell just from a quick look that it’s going to be WAY off, so it’s possible that models with high scores might be calculated differently, but I haven’t had time to give it a proper look yet.

That’s all I have time for at the moment. If anyone is interested in running additional models with this formula, I’d love to see the results, and any thoughts, comments, insights related to this.
