Digging Up the Past -- Signup Closed!

Postby Theblackdog » Mon Nov 26, 2012 8:38 pm

After escaping from Admiral Blackdog during the invasion of Refuge, President Bob the Unbuilder met up with a small contingent of troops at a location deep in one of the planet's beige deserts...
Image
"Mr. President, why are we here?"
"You mean in a general sense, or, specific'ly, this particular location?"
"The second one."
"See those ancient ruins up ahead?"

Image
"Many Galactik Revolutions ago, this Galaxy was ruled by a warrior race called the Deadly SpaceMen. They're long gone now. But just after we arrived, we found some energy signatures under the dunes here, and we started digging. The Deadly SpaceMen used to have a base here, and much of their technology is still around."
"Looks like we may be too late. The Britannian army's already set up camp around the site... I think they want this technology for themselves. So, what's your plan?"

Image
"Kill them, find something we can use to destroy the Britannian fleet, and then destroy the Britannian fleet with it."
"Mr. President, why do I keep letting you come up with plans?"
"I dunno."

Image
Wanting the DSM artifax for themselves, the Britannians have forced a group of Bavarian POWs to continue digging around the site in search of more treasure by holding their commanding officer Captain Von Klaus and his dashing mustache at gunpoint.
"I know one of you lot escaped last night. Tell us where he went, and we will spare your life."
"I vould not tell you even iv I knew. You vill get nothing vrom me, Tommy."
Two guard towers cover the workers with a pair of miniguns in case anyone plans to rescue the Captain and his extraordinary facial hair. Already, many DSM artifax have been found...

Image
A mobile rocket launcher.

Image
A gyro pistol (one shot = 1D4 attacks).

Image
A portable radar dish (grants a more powerful version of the Scout ability to whomever holds it)

Image
A thruster pack.

Image
And a booster engine from a DSM "Galaxy Exploder" class warship.

Image
Returning from his cavalry patrol, Captain Harris spots the T.L.A. vehicles approaching the dig site. "Look sharp, lads! We have guests coming, and I don't think they're here for a spot of tea..."

Image

Signup & Stuff
There are five available factions, each divided into two different forces -- the main force and the reinforcements. The main force starts out on the field or arrives on turn 1, while the reinforcements arrive on turn 3. The exact content of each reinforcement team will be PM'd to its respective faction.
Signup for one force -- armies whose names are in red are taken. If we don't have enough players after 48 hours, I'll allow people to sign up for both armies within the same faction.

Winning
There are 5 DSM artifax strewn throughout the battlefield. Your goal is to capture as many of them before the end of the battle, which will most likely be just before Saturnalia. Each team has one specific artifakt they want to go after, which is worth two victory points if they have it; all other artifax are worth one victory point. I'll let you know which artifax are important to each team by PM. You are counted as "owning" an artifakt if it is a) being held by one of your minifigs or b) inside a vehicle that you control.
Enough of this, let's see some armies:

Bavarian POWs -- Silverdream

They're not in a very good position, but if they can secure and use enough Artifax early in the game, it might level the playing field a bit.
