Before I begin, I have to mention that this battle is A - entirley a single player battle, and Most importantly B - This does not follow Brikwars rules
I still haven't become familiar enough with the core rules to be able to follow everything to a T. Years ago friends and I played a Wargame with these same armies but it was leagues apart from Brikwars, This battle however is much more similar to brikwars than the older game. Nevertheless you probably wont even notice much of a difference anyway, I was actually -playing- I wasnt just posing figs and dropping dice on the table to make it look like a game. Although you will have to excuse some of the shots that had massive piles of dice in the middle of the road, I got tired of them falling off the edge of the table. If something seems odd or out of place, don't mention it, because it's not worth wasting your time, I've already warned you that this is not a pure brikwars game.
*Yes, Har har I stole the name from Half life, But City 17 was the name of the city I had 5 of 6 years ago, it's long gone now but when I put my plates down and such this evening, a few buildings and partial buildings still remain, so I figured I'd have one last battle before tearing it apart and starting anew*
City 17 is situated on a Planet next to Brikrigton, the former home of the now defunct Brikrigton Empire. It has seen nearly 10 years of civil war, and foreign invasion. Now it is at a breaking point. Caspian f0rces have deployed to the region in an attempt at gaining the populace's support, the Volkan Democratic Republic sent a strike force to the planet as well, in pursuit of a Larrian Alliance Commander whom they have labeled a "War Criminal" for defacing the Volkan's new Flagship by replacing several Volkan Black briks with Larrian Green briks while it was still under construction.
I elected to make this a primarily Infantry battle and kept the number of vehicles down. I rolled some dice to determine the turn order
Larrians > Caspians > VolkansCalm before the Storm *Overview*
The band of Larrian Alliance Fighters, who have set up camp in a destroyed trainyard, and have been trying to manufacture fighting vehicles with no success.
The Caspian Pacification Force, Who have deployed near the trainyard, next to the valley
The Volkan Strike Force, Who have deployed on the beachTURN 1
A group of Larrian fighters wastes no time in welcoming the Caspian army, Taking down a pair of Caspian Marines immediatley
A Caspian Mechanized Infantry fireteam responds with a volley of fire onto the Larrian fighters, Killing three of them
The Volkan APC Pulls ahead and fires on the masses of Caspian Army soldiers, Amazingly hitting -nothing-TURN 2
Larrian fighters rush into the second story of a run-down apartment building and set up a machinegun in the window
The Larrian Machine gun rains down on the Caspian Mechanized troops, Killing half the squad, and sending one particular poor soul a few feet from his legs
The Caspian Marine Squad fires on the window and massacres the Machinegunner, and also managed to hit a second Larrian who was hiding behind the wall, just from the sheer amount of suppressive fire
During their trigger happy moment on the late machine gunner, the Marines failed to notice a group of Larrians right in front of them
The Larrians kill 3 more marines
Caspians are hit on a second flank as they encounter Volkan troops Coming from the beach

The Armadillo fires a burst at the group, Killing some and scattering the others
Caspian Army troopers move up to the barricade left by the locals, along with a Jaguar Tank, The Jaguar fires on the Volk's APC
The Jaguar scores a direct hit, knocking the APC out of commission, making the Volkan pilot wish he had capitalized earlier when firing on those masses of troops, Now he burns to death in the smouldering wreck
Volkan soldiers push the flank and take down more Caspian Army Troops,
Meanwhile a Volkan Tank killer team fires down the road from the APC wreck
The tank is hit multiple times, bursts into flames killing all inside and the turret crushes a Caspian Soldier unfortunate enough to be next to it
Caspian Soldiers still alive from the missile attack fire back on the Tank Killers, Killing two of them as well as a Volkan InfantrymanTurn 4
A Larrian fighter clambers on top of the hill and plants a charge at the base of the sign
Unfortunatley he failed his roll to jump off the hill in time and is blown away by the explosion
All is not lost however, the City 17 Sign falls and crushes the remaining Marines
The Armadillo fires another burst at a group of Larrian fighters out in the open
