Round 1

Loyalists - solvess

Chief: "General, what course of action shall we follow?"

Marnix: "Wait, I think I feel the tactical plan of my lifetime coming up..."

Image

"There's nothing else for it... You can't approach with prudence something that can't be done prudently..."

Image

"CHARGE!"

Image

The phalanx, who couldn't sprint, lagged behind. Shields clashed upon shields but the Rebel's line didn't break. Giving the example, Marnix reached the enemy lines himself first.

Image

With a warcry, he made a brave leap...

Image

... and smashed into the middle of the enemy formation, allowing him to attack all four of them as he swung his mace above his head vigorously...

Image

Killing two; the others defended with their shields succesfully, though their defences staggered under his fierce blows.

Rebels - Moronstudios

Image

The Icons let their spiritual magic flow through the ranks of Valarius' army, allowing every unit to move faster.

Image

They would've advanced amongst the whole line as a unit if it wasn't for the guys already blocking them, so some warriors even found themselves having to step backwards briefly to attack. Fighting broke out almost along the whole line - a swordsman was killed and the loyalist general took a hit.

Image

Where the opposition was cleared, phalanx advanced.

Image

On the other side of the field, another swordsman was defeated.

Image

The icons on the sides advanced as well, which was what the crossbowmen had been waiting for. However they barely managed to hit anything and the Icons easily shrugged off the shots that did hit.

Image

Crossbowmen advanced, mostly swarming out over the flanks.

Image

Valarius descended from his hill. Since he was blocked by the mass of fighting warriors he took his crossbow and fired a destructive bolt, exploding the face of a swordsman.

Xalen - Silverdream

Image

The skeletons advanced in silence.

Image

Xalen attempted to raise more fallen warriors to aid him, but failed.

Image

He took his frustration out on an enemy crossbowman, tearing him apart with his shadow magic.

Purple Mages - Ross_Varn

Image

The headmaster cast a speed spell, allowing his companions to fly swiftly off into the battle.

Image

One mage casted a spell which confused one of the Rebel phalanx, making him pause and wonder if their cause was right (he won't do anything until he overcomes the spell).

Image

The other caster's attempt to fire a fireball into the enemy ranks exploded into his face (crit fail), and he managed to let the 1d6 repercussion chip off one of his HP.

Image

Overview

Kill Chart

Loyalists - 2
Rebels - 3
Xalen - 1
Purple Mages - 0

Next orders... let's say the deadline'll be around tuesday midday, since I won't be home until friday from tuesday evening, so I'll be able to upload round 2 somewhere tuesday / wednesday. Gotta keep up the pace.

Nice turn, but I must do something about those pesky mages.

Charge... that was the best you could come up with? Whoa-boy. Better warn Mr T and Chuckles to start heating the branding irons. :roll:

Marnix did well, but without support the odds are against him.

Warhead's rooting for Valarius, he probably won't tell ;)

The Bull Nations MUST rise up and throw off the yoke of their Imperial masters or perish. However, I don't think the Bull General Marnix should be so easy to destroy. He must have been chosen of the Great Bull at some point.

I have no idea what you should have done Solvess, but what I would have done was make him come to me. Please don't take the following as a put down it's not intended that way.

You already held a narrow position with less men. Your flanks were guarded in that position where as now you can be enveloped by a larger force, your flanks and rear are vulnerable and you have charged in a ragged mob, not as a formation so you should end up being cut to bits. Not sure if Brikwars lends it's self to that though.

Waiting in defence would have allowed for more undead to mass too and brought the enemy into range, now they have to slog across the field in dribs and drabs.

However, it's not all bad. My main worry would be the Rebel Bulls archers and Bull Icons, they could whittle you down if you DIDN'T charge so maybe it's not all bad. Personally I would have trusted in Bull armour and badassery and left the archers etc to the Purple Magi. *shrug*

@Valarius: THE BULL GOD IS WATCHING!!!

Well warhead you might find my move a little... gutsy.

Problem is, Warhead, whenever you depend on me to take out the ranged support, I end up headbutting heavy units on the other side of the field.

I blame the dice. :D
