Carved in Stone (Round 7)

Postby Bragallot » Wed Apr 30, 2014 10:09 am

Round 6: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=12335

Round 7

1. Dark Elves

Image

The dark elves attack Landor. He only just parries a couple of blows, even lands one himself...

Image

... but the multitude of the dark elves finally becomes too much, and he collapses.

The skeletons advance, grabbing what they can, except for the chicken zombie man who has no hands. By now there are so many corpses on this side of the field that they can barely make it through.

Image

The grave wraiths blast Miranda and the ranger yet again, killing the ranger and almost doing the same to Miranda.

Image

The undead giant got a fine damage roll, and then I rolled exactly the same numbers for the wall's 'armour' roll...

Image

Grinding damage allows him to take a chunk out of it though. In true AoE fashion, the wall starts crumbling from the top.

2. Crimson Knights

Image

The iron grannie pulls the pike out of Cassandra's abdomen.

Image

She doesn't have healing magic, so cauterizing the wound is the most she can do.

Image

The grannie also throws the pike at Garth.

Image

Garth parries it however.

Image

Though heavily wounded, Cassandra still manages to cast a spell...

Image

... thus animating the armour of her fallen soldiers.

Image

Image

Image

The metal husks dance for Cassandra like puppets on a string.

Image

One knight falls to a counter.

Image

His armour is animated as well.

Image

The spearman fought valiantly, but couldn't hold on forever.

3. Dwellers

Image

After taking fire from the grave wraiths for three consecutive rounds, Miranda finally hops down the slope, to a safe location.

Image

Well, safe...

(the forum is not letting me post this image for whatever stupid reason)

She legs it with her remaining move.

(2)

Splotcha focuses the powers of the holy light through his trusty roeispaan... but nothing happens.

(2)

He crawls onto a slope to escape the approaching skeletons.

Image

Miranda can't use the light, but she does have some bio magic at her disposal.

Image

Magical spider webs shoot out and rip apart three skeletons.

4. Woad Elves

(2)

Made nervous by the dread the crimson knights put in lesser minifigs, this spearman barely misses.

Image

These guys even fail to take down the animated armours.

Image

This one doesn't.

(2)

The woad elves on the bridge keep charging.

5. Dragon Knights

Image

Ignoring Cassandra's minions, Garth picks up the largest weapon he can find...

(2)

He stabs Cassandra from the bottom of the slope, but she withstands it.

Image

An animated armour and the last heavy swordsman are taken down by Brockram and a dragoon.

Image

Brockram gets unlucky for once and breaks his weapon on the swordsman's armour.

Putting this up was a fucking nightmare. It 'wasn't possible to determine the dimensions' of certain images (even though they were EXACTLY the same as the others) so I had to check and preview every fucking image separately to know which ones were fucking up the post. That's why some, including the main overview pic, are missing.

Now it's not even letting me edit it, 'cos when I try to edit it it's 'not possible to determine the dimensions' of images AGAIN. Even though I ALREADY POSTED THEM. Gah.


Either way, I'm glad I managed to get the round up so close after the previous one.

It's a lot of pretty large images for one post. This error message usually either means that the server is overloaded and timing out while trying to process so many images at the same time, or that photobucket is being slow for some reason and it's not able to load all the images before the timeout.

Either way, the solution is just to break it up into multiple posts.

how many of each faction are still active (I'd say 'alive' but given one of the factions here is the undead...)?

Hmm, I prefer 640x480 images myself but I ran a poll once and people voted on the bigger ones :twss: Maybe I'll do that, but I haven't had this much trouble before, and you could say I've put up quite a lot of forum battle rounds in the past, some bigger than this.

Battlegrinder here's a breakdown of what's left:

Dragon Knights:

- Brockram and Garth (both down to 1 HP)
- 2 Dragoons

Dark Elves:

- 3 Dark Elves
- 4 grave wraiths
- the undead giant
- 9 skeletons
- zombie chicken man

Woad Elves:

- 6 warbands

Rangers:

- Miranda (1 HP) and Splotcha, the first Dungan paladin (still at full health)

Crimson Knights

- Cassandra (down to 1 HP)
- 1 Iron Grannie
- 1 elite
- 1 crimson knight
- 6 animated armours

If Splotcha wins this (or at least dies after being sufficiently epic) I may need to make my own Dungan paladins.
