Quasi-Battle-Report>Siege of Colony Daedalus

Postby dilanski » Mon Jul 19, 2010 10:18 am

A while ago me and a friend had a battle over a small colony on the outskirts of Praetorian space... The colony had been stirring up trouble and the Praetors wanted them dead, upon arrival they discovered a fortified base It seems the colonists had received a large shipment of weapons and even a small RAINBOW Class Corvette.

We didn't have long so we turned it to a CTF match, I had to capture the blue flag and he had to defend it for a few turns. I only took a before photo because as i said time was short. I the battle lasted a few turns, even though my friend actually had a CP advantage with his Ship and various vehicles plus the crates of weapons and turrets, he decided to play it safe, |I decided the best strategy was BLITZKRIEG! and charged in all guns blazing, and took the flag without much resistance.

Fire, Fire, burning bright

Heroism is not the ability to kick ass. It is the willingness to use this ability on any poor bastard who so much as looks at you funny.

[sarcasm]Have you ever thought of a job as a detective as I so didn't notice that...[/sarcasm]

The wiki decided it wanted the pic that big and who am I to argue with the wiki?

If it really pisses you off so much why don't you edit it then?

Uh. Dil. You do know that the size of an image in the wiki is editable, right? I mean, when you insert it, you have the option of making it %50 as large.

So, excuse fail. Download this. http://www.fotosizer.com/

Look, mate, the problem is that the wiki isn't a host site. Make an account on Brickshelf, download that resizing program, and you should be good to go.

No one appreciates the effort if you don't bother to make it.

Also, a link to the picture, because it looks like it was a cool battle anyways.

As everyone has said, get a freakin host. I think Flickr is a lot better than Brickshelf and a lot of the LEGO community uses it. It's pretty easy to use and Flickr can automatically resize your pics and you can pic what size you want to post on the forums.

dilanski, once you learn to resize your own pictures, post some more as the board looks nice and I would love to see more shots of the space raiders. :D

Photobucket then, it doesn't have to be the best of image hosts, it's free. You just need to get used to using it.
