Battle for the Strana Van

Postby Strana » Sun Jun 14, 2009 2:47 pm

Well if you were following the socal thread strana, tuefish , RoC77, and so_bri_quet. got together and played a game in person. well a happy bout of carnage ensued and this is what happened.
ROC77's army:
Image
Tuefishes army:
Image
Lucky rolls from a starfighter and an UPV-a confound the armor of an APC and make it explode.
Image
movement in the first turn
Image
UPV-a take up position to fire upon RoC77's troops and vehicles
Image
quets' troops move up the field to bring tier weapons in the game.
Image
One of the light tanks opens up as one of Tuefishes troops jumps in front of the shots to save his buddies
Image
RoC's tank opens up anihilating the UPV-a it as it blows up it flips over the troops who just dissembarked, a lone gunner climbs from the wreckage.
Image
Fearing rocks main tank after destroying the UPV some troops and damaging another main tank, 2 class IV missiles are launched impacting the tank lighting of its ammo storage and sending the turret flying
Image
some general troop movement and positions
Image
Image
Image
Those troops look better fried with FLAME THROWER!!
Image
the pwer of a squad opening up on one of the light combat tanks totally destroys it in one turn
Image
Fearing another blown tank with themselves inside it some toorps disembark ready to kill something
Image
after reataking a hero is killed long with quiet a few troops as a rocket land on the hill devouring several bodies and cooking the hero so much that his head flys of his body as a rocket
Image

rest of the game later.

they needed more missile. actually most of the tanks left were almost dead only the other light tank on the far side that tasked itself to hunting down the fighter survived with no damage. mostly it was just bad rolling. and next time well have stats for all the vehicles. since none of came with write ups we jus agreed on an everage based upon descriptons from the creations chapeter with some house rules thrown in for weapons like cannons were based on elements rather than inches and so on like Bonn-o-Tron. also one of my house rules for explosives against squads. the squad is a single unit so the total explosive damage is rolled then from that is subtracted the armor of the minifg until there is no more points left of explosion damage its a benefit then to have squads even when explosives are on the field.

Alright, that was way too cool looking to pass up. If this happens again over summer, I am down, gas prices aside.

I'm jealous. Maybe I should take a road trip to Cali instead of Massachusetts this summer.

Nice floor. Not baseplates, but an example of good terrain.

Also some features could be in LEGO.

But nice battle.

It was more of a combination of bad placement & and bad rolls. One of my BMP's never even made it one turn. It was in range of at least 3 of Strana's vehicles. We forgot to take more pictures in the beginning, but it did take a while for him to kill my main battle tank. His tank was almost killed, but I ran out of proper weapons to give it the coup de grace. Too bad we didn't have enough time to do another battle, I brought a couple more tanks & I was going to field the Battle Bus I just built.

What also should be mentiond was tuefish's figther on the other side of the field. so_bri_quet spent half the game trying to shoot it down.......

Too bad you couldn't make it IVhorseman, don't worry though, I'm pretty sure we'll be palying more games.

well here's some more pics

A storm trooper on a horse takes aim at a biker, while the flamer van looks at glorious charnel house of smoke and fumes
Image
the remaining tanks reagard eachother balefully as shots bounce of armor killing the men around them, a lone trooper slugs on after the rest of his squad was wiped from the face of the earth.
Image
the boarding craft deciding action is necessary takes to the air in order to get a medic and breeching guy into battle
Image
a look from the other side of the table
Image
the apc moves up firing a missile taking out a hero and killing some allied troops
Image
Deciding that the terror of the skys must be put down the breeching boat rams the aerofighter as fast as possible, suprising the pilot of the aero fighter survives.
Image
battle field overview
Image
Image
the battle around the hill heats up as no one is left claiming it if RoC's, or tuefishes army gets there it restarts the count down.
otherwise is strana of quite hold the hillfor one more turn game win
Image
the forgotten RPG troopers jump from behind a container at kill the remaining APC
Image
after the berzerkers fire upon a lone sniper desintigrating him into nothing but a helmet and gun, then gets fired upon by the light tank, destroying most of the squad.
Image
overview a'tween forces
Image
some orange chain saw action rendering a lego man who sprinted 28" in twain, obviously he was dieing to get there
Image
Image
A hero after several turns of being under fire, literally decided to take it personally unfortunately he couldnt fit through the window, but with such great vigor did he attempt so that his head flew strait off.
Image
Image
not much alive in the end
Image
Image
Image
the storm trooper claimed the objective for the win
Image
i think this is the only shot of the tank which survived with no damage.
Image
a line of bodies
Image
more overview
Image
