The Epic Story of My First Game--With Picks!

Postby Professor Fairfield » Tue Sep 01, 2009 12:01 pm

For picks of my units, see the thread in the Armory. Here's a pick of the Battlefield, before we started:

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020318.jpg

The Red Team approaches!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020341.jpg

This is blurry, so I'll fill you in on what's going on: The artillery platoon is flanking to the South, a squad of infantry led by Tom Fairfield's Ghost Recon is coming in for attack, and my opponent is to the north wearing only his boxers. (Sorry!)

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020343.jpg

The Ghost Recon is unlucky and the first to "die," but his crew fight on, and one mows down the blue guy with his AK!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020346.jpg

Troopers stationed in Fort BURP gun down some more of the Ghost Platoon, so the artillery knocks on them and their position! Meanwhile, the enemy hero approaches, and my opponent still is in his boxers!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020351.jpg

The enemy hero's platoon comes under fire from this squad and the technical's chaingun!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020352.jpg

The technical sprays again, and the hero is redshirted out of harm's way by an otherwise useless guy with a hammer!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020357.jpg

A sneaky guy ambushes the troopers approaching Fort BURP and blows them up with his bazooka!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020358.jpg

I don't remember exactly what this guy's story is, but it didn't end happily!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020361.jpg

These guys approach the garrisons en-masse! This shot is boring, but don't worry; it will get exciting soon!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020363.jpg

What did I tell you?! This formation was a horrible idea, as soon another guy with an RPG launcher blew several up in one hit!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020365.jpg

Nonetheless, the charge to safety at Fort BURP persists, and some of the defenders are taken down!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020367.jpg
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020368.jpg

But even behind Fort BURP, safety was an illusion, as the hero came back with a new squad and burned up the invaders!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020379.jpg

Meanwhile, the RPG trooper killed more of the invaders, as well as the truck's gunner. With the gunner and the roof downed, the driver throws it in reverse and gets the hell out of there!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020380.jpg

Meanwhile, another bazooka pest takes a blow at the artillery cannon, which has been trying to blow away a sniper so that the infantry in the Battlebus can advance.

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020381.jpg
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020383.jpg

The driver of the technical gets a good idea, and drives to his blown off roof, attempting to man the gun. Good creative thinking or excessive rules-lawyering; a WISGR settles it as the former.

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020383.jpg

Then, in a rather anti-climatic twist, a good shot from a rifle blows the driver's head off next turn.

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020400.jpg

It was a bloody battle, but against bitter odds, the blue team surrenders!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020404.jpg
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020406.jpg
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020408.jpg

A hero handshake! (Poor Spitaur never fought in this battle.)

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020409.jpg

Throw down your guns!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020414.jpg

Spitaur pays tribute to all those who fell (how a spider can blow a bugle, I don't know) as the headless trucker looks on!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020416.jpg

The sweet, blood-red flags of victory!

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Profe ... 020422.jpg

Compare and contrast this to the first picture!

Just a reccomendation: select the url for the image, then click the image tags. Of course, you should probably resize them first.

Example:

Other than that, the battle itself was pretty epic.

I was honestly expecting this.

That was my intent, as an in-joke based on the "Picks form my Lego town" thread.

Elmagnifico, I think he left them as links for a reason.

the easiest way to resize them , to upload them in MS Paint and press CTRL+W then downsize about 45 width 45 height that should give you a decent spread
