Battle for Fort Legoredo (HH)

Postby ikensall » Sat Oct 30, 2010 12:48 pm

*__*BATTLE FOR FORT LEGOREDO*__*
A short time after the end of the American civil war the British empire sees an opportunity to strike back (yes that was a nerdy starwars reference).
The exertions of America during the war have left her crippled and unable to fight again for a long time. the British send an officer from the Old Guard to try and persuade some of the troops occupying the coastal forts to joing the Empire and it's forces.

If you didn't read that (which you probobally didn't) then you won't understand what on earth this battle or anything to do with it means.
:idc:

NOTE:Captions are always below the relevant picture.

Image
Overview.

Image
Overview of the British cannons on the ridge.

Image
Overview of the marshy ground (movement here is decided by rolling d6).
Also note that the skeletons are not involved in the battle at this point.

Image
Overview of part of the harbor (the sheriff and his deputy are also visible on their patrol boat).
The potion can be consumed by anyone (nobody knows what it does though).

Image
Overview of the rest of the harbor, the boat can be used by a team to move over water .

Image
Overview showing the british officer of the old guard and his body guards.

Image
This is an overview of the fort (taken from the back).
The colonel of the cavalry is in the building.

Image
Under the building there is another cavalry soldier.

Image
Inside the fort (on the embrassure) there is the flag of booze and drink.
Nobody knows how it got there or what it means.

Image
This is a shot of the gates (there is an officer on the roof and another in the tower behind).

TURN ONE

THE BRITISH EMPIRE
Image
The first bodyguard picks off the officer on the roof with his bolt action rifle.

Image
"PHUT"
"Uuuurrggghh"
"SMWACK"
if the bullet didn't kill him then the fall certainly did.

Image
The Officer tries to jump through the gap in the wall of the fort.

Image
Oh dear.
(i don't have any pics uploaded yet to image shack of what happened next)

The officer gets stuck in the wall. Unless someone helps him out he is stuck there for good.

Image
The last body guard moves over towards the secondary gate of the fort (near the harbor) and saves his reaction fire.

Image
The cannons on the ridge fire at the fort.

Image
The first shot hits the wall where the US soldier was.

Image
The soldier is knocked off the wall but otherwise unharmed.

Image
Shot No. 2 tears the officer on the tower in half, splattering his guts all over the place in a very brikwarsy fashion.

SHERIFF AND DEPUTY
Image

Image
The sheriff pulls the patrol boat around in a slick turn.

Image
The deputy tries (and fails) to hit the second British Bodyguard.

Image
The bodyguard uses his response action to blow the deputies head of his shoulders.

Image
The sheriff tries to use his heroic feat to climb up the palm tree.

Image
Urm.

Image
"SPLASH"
Maybe not.

Image
*COUGH*
crocodiles*COUGH*

The rest of turn one coming tomorrow.

I also have the "Gold city junction" set (I'm not sure if thats its name). The two of them came off ebay for around £46.
Anyway.

US CAVALRY

Image
The Colonel decides to impale a giant ciggarette on his cavalry sabre.

Image
He then goes outside to boss around his garrison.

Image
The guy who got knocked off the wall earlier decides to get going.

Image
He sits up to pick up his rifle.

Image
He then moves over to the shooting gap and saves his response fire.

Image
The guy under the building realises that he has been barricaded out of the fort by his daft friends.

Image
After wasting his action trying to get back into the fort he goes out to explore around the ridge.

Image
The soldier on the ledge realises that his officer is dead and a well of rage builds up inside him :evil:.

"MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA"
" cough"

Image
He climbs down the ladder and (after erupting with annoyance that his target is out of range) saves his response fire.

Image
The guy in the corner of the fort nearest the British troops decides to try and take out a Bodyguard.

Image
He jumps out from behind cover and fires two revolver bullets into the
Bodyguard's abdomen.
The british soldier is killed within minutes.

Meanwhile near the ridge.

...


Image

TEAM UNLOCKED: THE UNDEAD
Team objective: collect ten heads and return them to the
skellie spaceship orbiting the planet.

Image
Over by the lake ...

Image
The skeletons over in the boat hear the call of their leader, Zombie Lincoln.

Image
The other skeleton gets a 5 on his roll to decide his movement through the bog.

Image
He goes over to the wall and pulls out a box. But what could be in it?

Image
A rifle .:twisted:

Image
The other undead starts to fish, God knows what he hopes to find.

Image
Mr. Warhead starts swishing his spear above the ridge, what could he be thinking?

Image
"AHA GOT IT"

Image
He flings the head on the floor and waits...

Image
"BBBZZZZZTTT"
The head is teleported into the spaceship.
HEADS:1 out of 10

Image
The undead assasin droid starts sprinting towards the US soldier.

Image
Ouch.

Image
The assasin droid stands back and watches as his handywork is beamed up to the spaceship.
HEADS:2 out of 10

Apologies about the smaller pics for this part of the round.

NEXT ROUND COMING TOMORROW.

Nice set up and mostly good pictures with a few blurry ones, though the change in size was a bit noticeable. I give it a 4.

I've got some more pics to come. If I've mised the deadline then its hard cheese but i'll upload the rest anyway.

TURN TWO

BRITISH EMPIRE
Image
The bodyguard near the harbor gets bored of looking out to sea and
decides to give his officer a helpful kick up the arse.

Image
"SMWACK"

Image
"urrff"

Image
The officer moves over to the embrassure and picks up the rocket stick.

Image
The cannoneers on the ridge finish reloading the cannon and start to aim.

Image
They fire off a shot at the guy standing on the wall.

Image
The carnage is incredible.

Image
One of the cannoneers takes the place of his fallen comrade.

Image
The sheriff gets bored of sunbathing and thinks about booze.

Image
He decides to drink the potion, atleast it's a little bit like booze.

Image
"GlugGlugGlugGlug"

Image
:wtc:

Image
As the transformation takes hold the sheriff feels a rush of shock and indignity surge through him.

Image
He is now a full rainbow knight. He can move 10 " per turn and has the ability to walk on water.
"ahh fuck"

The rest of the turn is coming in a minute.

US Cavalry.

Image
The soldier under the wall shoots at a Britsh gunner on the ridge.

Image
The gunner is cut down by a shot to the head.

Image
He then takes cover behind a pillar.

Image
The soldier near the harbor looks around and soon finds a target.

Image
The bullet misses and makes a loud "THUD" as it hits the sand.

Image
The soldier then hides behind the wall.

Image
The colonel pulls a stick of dynamite out of the barrel and lights it with
the end of his giant ciggarette.

Image
He tosses it over the wall and waits hopefully.

Image
"BOOM"
The skeleton is killed (again) instantly by the ABS reaction.

THE UNDEAD

Image
The other skellie is getting bored of fishing and thinking of packing it in when...

Image
He finds a halberd!
No not a halibut you half-wits.

Image
Mr. Warhead walks over to the horsies and...

Image
... mounts up.
Warhead now has a horse.

Image
The assasin droid runned over to the back gates of the fort.

Image
Zombie Lincoln looks over towards the beheaded union soldier and thinks to himself "hmmn we need more undead".

Image
The union soldier will fight for the undead next turn.

Image
Zombie Lincoln and the sword wielding skeleton move up towards the back gates.

NEW FACTION UNLOCKED: TOWNSPEOPLE
Objective: protect the fort.
Allies:US Cavalry.

Image
The townspeople hear the fighting and decide to come and help defend
the local fort.

Image
They also have a stage coach that has entered from around the ridge.

Image
The coach rattles round the corner.

Image
Before coming to a screeching halt outside the fort.

Image
The guns are aimed at the last british gunner.

Image
The cannoneer is torn down by a hail of bullets.

The British guns are officially out of action until further notice.

Image
The other townsfolk fire at the assasin droid and the skellie swordsman
but for some reason the didn't want to shoot at their old leaders undead counter part.
Miraculously the assasin droid survives but the swordsman does not have such luck.

It is "monday night" in my country and as this was the set deadline i think i am on time with the last part of my entry.

More will come tomorrow (i will finish the battle even if it isn't included in the hellhunt contest.)

Good luck to all in the HH contest. :)

First off, just let me say I really fucking love the battlefeild and the troops. and the unoriginality of the plot was knocked out in the later rounds, which accounted for about another point up. Also, I would recomend better gore, but you still got a 4.5!

The battlefield is indeed very good, and the extra factions is making this report much more interesting than what I expected. Can't wait to see the rest. :)
