The Invasion

Postby Theblackdog » Mon Aug 27, 2012 11:42 pm

Admiral Blackdog wrote:Lord Admiral, I have consulted with my officers and decided to strike at the T.L.A. They are currently no threat to our Empire, but they have declared their allegiance to that ragtag bunch of lesser nations calling themselves the "anti-Immortals", and if we move now we can destroy them and take their newly claimed world before they have a chance to entrench. If we succeed in taking At zero hours this day, our fleet began action against T.L.A. spacecraft in orbit, and by noon we were ready to land ground troops.


Image
Admiral Blackdog's fleet emerges in orbit around the T.L.A.'s new home. Most of the T.L.A. fleet is destroyed instantly; only a few ships escape into deep space or around the far side of the world.

Image
On the bridge of the Conqueror, Admiral Blackdog's land flagship, Blackdog consults with one of his officers.
"Admiral, the T.L.A. capital has fallen and their forces are in retreat on all fronts. Our boys are giving them a sound thrashing, by the looks of it."
"Excellent. What of their leader, this... President Bob the Unbuilder?"
"Our intelligence says that he escaped their capital aboard a small hover transport. This ship is too slow to pursue them, so we're sending the Challenger to intercept."
"Smashing good work. Is there time for me to board? He may be protected by their best troops -- I wish to see how they perform in combat."
"Certainly, sir."

Image
Minutes later, the Challenger, with Blackdog and two Marine swordsmen aboard, is in hot pursuit of the Speedy Hovering Infantry Transport carrying President Bob the Unbuilder and his guard troops.

Image
Ahead of them, the flat, beige desert is broken up by an oasis containing some ancient ruins.
"Why the hell are we still running?" President Bob the Unbuilder demands.
"Mister President, they've got twice our firepower. I don't think we can take them head on --"
"Fuck yes we can! Turn this thing around!" He starts up his chainsaws in a manner more threatening to the S.H.I.T.'s crew than to their enemies.

Image
The driver makes a right turn, hoping to hide behind the terrain, but miscalculates and leaves himself exposed...

Image
The Challenger fires its starboard side rocket-torpedoes at the S.H.I.T.

Image
Fortunately, they miss.

Image
The Steam Gatling fires, but misses as well.

Image
Admiral Blackdog lines up a shot with his sniper rifle...

Image
... which goes through two of the T.L.A. guard troops.

Image
The S.H.I.T. gets turned all the way around and charges at the Challenger, but its weapons cannot pierce the landship's hull.

Image
The last remaining jump trooper lifts off and fires on the landship's occupants, but misses.

Image
The landship's captain responds with overkill.
*whirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...*

Image
*clunk*
"BLASTED BLOODY NEWFANGLED MECHANICAL DEVICES!"

Image
A crewman repairs the gun, but it's lost its chance to fire this turn.

Image
The landship turns and brings its portside rocket-torpedoes to bear on the S.H.I.T.

Image
Direct hit! The S.H.I.T. is destroyed and its pilot is killed. Bob seems unaware that anything has happened.

Image
The jump trooper fires on Blackdog, wounding him. Bob the Unbuilder climbs onto one of the ship's sponsons.

Image
A S.T.U.D.S. full of assault commandos arrives to support the T.L.A.

Image
The crewmen reload their rocket-torpedo launchers, and Blackdog fires on the hovering jump trooper...

Image
... who winds up extremely dead as a result.

Image
It seems that reinforcements have arrived for the Britannians as well...

Image
Bob the Unbuilder leaps onto the landship's deck, decapitating one crewman and the Captain.

Image
He advances on Blackdog, preparing to chainsaw him to death...

Image
... but Blackdog will have none of it, and shoots him in the chest in a most unsporting fashion.

Image
He then disembarks, unwilling to share the landship with a dual-chainsaw-wielding maniac.

Image
The Conqueror moves up... slowly.

Image
Its spotter plane lifts off, and circles around to get close to the action.

Image
The S.T.U.D.S. flies over the Challenger and deploys two flame troopers. They burninate the remaining enemies on the ship in short order.

Image
"Mister President, it's a good thing we found you when we did. There's a scoutship waiting to take you off-planet. We'll transport you there!"
"Leave? NOW? I'm not even done yet! Look, they still have an entire landship RIGHT THERE!"
"Mister President, you're not suggesting we attack a land battleship, are you?..."
"I'll take the helm. You, man the rocket launchers! You, man the other rocket launchers!"
"This is suicide! We can't possibly beat them all--"

Image
"FUCK YES WE CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!"

Image
The rockets glance harmlessly off the Conqueror's hull, but Bob the Unbuilder scores a lucky hit on a six-pounder gun turret. A pretty impressive shot, especially given that he was holding a pair of running chainsaws the entire time.

Image
The STUDS downs the Blenheim spotter plane. The plane's jet engine breaks free from its mounting and ingests the pilot, leaving only his hat behind.

Image
Suddenly, a sniper shot rings out from a cluster of rocks nearby, and Blackdog hears a bullet whistle past him...

Image
He turns around and fires, but his assailant has already ducked behind cover.

Image
The Conqueror's AA guns fire at the S.T.U.D.S.

Image
Its six-pounder cannon fire at the Challenger...

Image
And destroy its Steam Gatling.

Image
Its bombards fire, but without the Blenheim to spot for them, they both miss.

Image
The S.T.U.D.S. circles around behind the land battleship, preparing to deploy troops on its rear deck.

Image
With his Steam Gatling gone and the rocket launchers unloaded, Bob the Unbuilder knows there's only one thing left to do.
"RAMMING SPEED!"
"Sir, I don't think we'll actually do any --"
"BRACE FOR IMPACT!"

Image
The Challenger is totaled, but the Conqueror is unharmed.

Image
Bob the Unbuilder charges aboard, with the flame troopers right behind him. One tries to kill an AA gunner, but misses.

Image
A crewman with a pistol and cutlass charges, firing at Bob the Unbuilder as he goes. Other crewmen, armed with pistols, cutlasses and electromagnetic blunderbusses, move up but can't get a line of fire due to the massive bombard turret.

Image
The AA guns continue to fire at the S.T.U.D.S.

Image
The crewmen on the deck have put up a valiant defense against the boarders, but so far it has only served to make Bob angry.

Image
The flame troopers finish off the crew on deck.

Image
Meanwhile, Blackdog continues his duel with the mysterious sniper.

Image
Both of them are well hidden behind cover, and neither can score a hit.

Image
The STUDS deposits the remaining three Assault Commandos -- a sniper, a grenadier, and an officer -- on the land battleship's rear deck. A precisely aimed grenade kills the entire bridge crew.

Image
Belatedly realizing that his ship has been boarded, Blackdog breaks off from his duel to snipe one of the T.L.A. flame troopers.

Image
Marines from the lower deck arrive on the main deck level to fight. A steam minigunner mows down the T.L.A. officer.

Image
A Marine with an Enervated Phlogiston Projector fires at Bob the Unbuilder, scoring a direct hit.

Image
Nobody really knows what enervated phlogiston is, but we now know that it makes Bob the Unbuilder very angry.

Image
He cuts down the steam minigunner as well. The other troops on the deck dispose of the AA gunners.

Image
Three Britannian Marine riflemen sneak out through the ship's rear door. Are they running in terror? No! They turn around and deliver a salvo directly into the backside of the enemy, felling the T.L.A. grenadier! It appears to be a superb strategical maneuver...

Image
Image
Image
... but it doesn't work out too well in the long run.

Image
The Briklympics judges awarded him a "10", especially after he threatened them with the chainsaws.

Image
In front of the landed S.T.U.D.S., the President meets with his remaining troops.
"Sir, the capital has fallen and the Britannians outnumber us. We're evacuating everyone to the underground caverns. Our army will hold the entrance, but we need to get to that scoutship. We'll contact some of the other Anti-Immortal groups, see if they can spare a few ships to help us --"
"Diplomacy? Fuck that shit, I have a much better idea..."

Wow. That was a pretty one sided battle. Too bad that Blackdog couldn't support his troops better.

On the now-abandoned battlefield, a pair of figures still crouch behind a rocky outcropping...

Image
"You MISSED!? TWICE? How could you possibly --"
"Lord Caleb, Blackdog is a skilled sniper in his own right. Had I remained exposed long enough to draw a bead on him, I would have been killed myself."
"Argh, you're useless! We've got to wait for another chance to get him..."
