Golden Lions - GeneralOfDeath

Image

In an attempt to confuse his enemies Frederick Von B begins to recite the technicalities of his mana cannon Auf Deutsch...

"Meinen Mana geht durch meinen Korper in diesen Kanonne und wirdet so dadurch ausgesendet wie einen Kugel..."

Image

"The hell is he saying?"

"No idea, his German is too crappy!"

Image

This time, the cannon proved deadly.

Image

The fire mage tried to be useful...

Image

"Firebaaaa-"

Image

"-aaargh!"

Image

He then ran.

Image

Musketeers fired upon the Drakhirri and missed, while their mate charged...

Image

... and speared the squire :shock:

Image

Dead as a rock.

Image

Infantry got amazing sprint rolls, but one guy who got a 2 slowed the squad down.

"Damn you Joe! That's what you get eating all those burgers!"

Image

The remaining pistoleers placed the ladder to the wall, pistols blazing and nicking the fortifications.

Image

Musketeers did better, taking down a crossbowman.

Image

"Time to exterminate this vermin, boys."

Sargus - heavyfishcannon

Image

The titan successfully pushed the mini-cata closer to the keep without destroying it.

Image

Sargus then shuffled the ballistas closer as well, and even managed to fire one...

Image

It caught a Drakhirri in the neck.

Image

Yup, he's dead (why did I take this picture twice?).

Cales - Ross_Varn

Image

"Fight!"

Image

Cales let his guard down trying to inspire his men, so one of the knights got a free shot at him. It glanced off his armour, only just.

Image

He responded in kind, but the power behind his attack was feeble.

Image

So was the bodyguard's strike, again...

Image

Cassandra nearly killed him in turn.

Image

Seeing the distress their commander was in, some guardsmen broke from the main group and charged a knight.

Image

Despite a valiant defence, he was savaged.

Image

Two swordsmen reached the walls and climbed the ladders.

Image

The knight managed to hold them off, for now.

Image

The ram hit the braced gate, but damage sucked, again.

Hilter - Ham701

Image

The ram took a hit from a cannon.

Image

The one on the other side smeared a grounded Bull.

Image

Mages overkilled the invading swordsmen.

Image

And then some falling damage. Yup, that's gotta hurt.

Brockram - FISH!!!

Image

Brockram sent his horse into a wild leap...

Image

He got extremely lucky (6 vs 1 heroic feat roll, 5 on the next roll) and crushed Syrchon beneath the hooves of his horse.

Image

As he turned and moved to the side of the field, he maimed a Drakhirri's corpse for the lulz.

"No one messes with the First Marshal!"

Image

Brockram then took a defensive position, wondering if anyone else was going to come after him.

Cassandra - enders_shadow

Image

The bodyguard was startled as Cassandra's body dissolved and seemed to turn to shadow. He heard a sound like that of a thousand bats as the shadows passed him by, but he felt nothing...

Image

The shadows landed behind him.

Image

"Damnit. I missed him. And it seems I left my armour behind too."

Image

"???"

Image

Cassandra, seriously peeved off now, hit the bodyguard on the head again, but again the damage equaled his armour.

"Damnit!"

Image

Knights attacked, one missed, which meant the other had only a slim chance of breaking Cales' armour on his own...

Image

So he failed, and Cales struck him down in kind.

Zahru - Zahru II

Image

My dice keep hating Zahru. A 1 vs. 6 crit fail forced me to make his attempt to jump the keep make him smack himself into the wall and lose 1 HP.

Image

Even so he still managed to swing the axe-on-a-chain however.

Image

It caught the cannon and threw it over here. The aim was the other cannon but range rolls were, well, need I tell.

Storm Titan - Paco The Duck Ninja

Image

The storm titan picked up the kettle of burning oil.

Image

He quickly threw it before it would burn his hand, and it burned the ram, also setting the area in front of the gate on fire. The fire will have to be doused somehow, or the ram will be destroyed.

Image

The titan then crumpled in the small space, and whatever he was trying didn't quite work out.

"I'm stuck!"

More tomorrow, if all goes well. And bravo to all of you for speedy ordahs 8)

hmmm... that didn't quite go as planned. Also, what happened to my feat form last round?

Most failed to parry. The knight that was ganged upon did parry a lot of damage so it worked for him, but the spearmen got higher skill rolls than him, I think.

Thank you, Sargus! I was ticked about the siege gear.

No problem! Figured the objective "assist the siege" would be better achieved by getting the siege equipment in place then "hit bad people with sword."

Drakhirri - mgb519

Image

Syrchon got a chance to redeem himself... but a crit fail gave me little to work with, lest he'd come back as a vegetable. Drakhirri Eliminated :?

Bulls - Zupponn

Image

The remains of the special forces rushed the wall, but only Voytek was fast enough to scale it, and even so only just.

Image

He fired, but the crossbow bolt plunged into the surprised knight's shield.

Image

He then swatted Voytek's crossbow away.

Skarr - lawlmaster

Image

Skarr kept calling upon his wind magicks...

Image

And another gust of wind knocked the ladder down, again. A crit success (6 vs. 1) meant the ladder was not only shattered, but the officer was also crushed.

Image

This water mage used water to keep the gate from burning, without putting out the fire on the ram... don't ask me how :) The other one failed his attempt to drown Von B.

Image

Still confused by the same hero's babbling, crossbowmen all missed.

Meanwhile, something was stirring in the water...

Image

Image

The Ironic Punishment Brigade has come to inflict Ironic Punishment! Controlled by Brikboyz.

Image

At the same time, the nearby caves were rumbling heavily...

Image

... and out came the Earth Dragon who inhabited the mines! Awakened by the noise of the battle and seriously peeved off, the beast had a taste for some noisy human meat. Controlled by Killer Karetsu.

Image

Haldon: "There is the bloody beast just now! Anyone who helps me kill the creature will receive my aid!"

Image

Brockram: "I see a future pet!" New bonus objective for Brockram: tame the Earth Dragon. (I thought it was fitted 'cos the Drakhirri weren't supposed to die so early).

Yeah, that totally wasn't my fault.

Wow, just realized how far I am from the guy I wanted to charge. Can I amend "if I can get there" to the beginning?

I was worried for a while there that the Earth Dragon wasn't going to show up.
