Digging Up the Past -- Turn 3: In Which Shit Becomes Real

Postby Theblackdog » Sun Dec 09, 2012 12:16 pm

Bavarian P.O.W.s
Image
Von Klaus shoots the T.L.A. sergeant out of the mobile rocket launcher.

Image
He climbs aboard. "Ach, zis iz fine engineering," he says. "Almost as good as my Volkswagen."

Image
Meanwhile, the last remaining POW -- a stalwart and disciplined veteran of the Bavarian Shovel Brigades -- charges the sole remaining Britannian trooper, his weapon of choice held high.

Image
The Britannian blocks the attack with his shield and shoves the Bavarian backwards; he ends up Disrupted.

Image
Meanwhile, Von Klaus guns the engine, aiming for the distant guard tower.

Image
There is some rocky terrain in the way, but the buggy is designed for treacherous lunar surfaces and negotiates it easily...

Image
"Oh, bollocks."

Image
Image
Von Klaus lands safely on the far side of the tower.

Image
Meanwhile, as the Hr-36 pilot circles around for another attack run...

Image
He spots something in his path.

Bavarian Reinforcements have arrived!

Image
"Heinrich, beißen!"

Image
Obediently, the dinosaur crushes the Hr-36's cockpit in its jaws, and the now pilotless aircraft crashes behind it as it moves up.

Peach Raiders
Image
Louisiana Jones pulls out the Megaphone of the Ordinary Skull and begins to sing jazz music.

Image
His compatriots cannot stand his horrible singing, and drop their weapons to cover their ears.

Image
The two Rebels are protected from his terrible music by their helmets, and move forward, killing the last T.L.A. jump trooper.

Peach Reinforcements have arrived!

Image
The Peaches' shuttlecraft appears over the battlefield. It immediately launches both its missiles...

Image
...bringing the Killdozer down to 3 SP.

Image
It then rams itself into the Britannian Landship and drops both its heavy bombs, in an explosion so massive that I had nowhere near enough fire pieces to do it justice. As you can see, I resorted to simply pouring yellow, orange, and red pieces into the Landship's hull.

Image
The shuttle is totaled, the landship's entire crew is killed, and it loses one rocket launcher and its Steam Gatling -- but amazingly, the hull itself survives with 3 SP remaining.

Rogue VoL

Image
Bjorn charges Bob the Unbuilder, screaming in rage.

Image
His first slash critfails and cuts the scope off his own rifle...

Image
...but the second hits home and takes Bob down to one wound.

Image
The other VoL troops move up to join the fray.

VoL reinforcements have arrived!

Image
A squad of troops and a Salamander Tank Destroyer appear on the battlefield.

Image
They advance, and the Salamander fires an incredibly accurate plasma shot into the Killdozer's rear. Its armor holds, but Bob's cabinet is wiped out.

T.L.A.
Image
Bob counter-attacks Bjorn, but is unable to land a blow.

Image
"Welp, this isn't any fun." He hops back on the Killdozer...

Image
Unable to turn around, it simply backs up towards the rocket launcher.

The howl of high-powered turbine engines echoes over the battlefield...

T.L.A. reinforcements have arrived!

... and a massive hover tank appears.
Image

Image
The SHDT moves up and opens its rear hatch, deploying a squad of Assault Commandos. Their sniper takes a shot at Von Klaus, but his vehicle is moving too fast and the attack misses.

Image
A plasma gun rotates to aim at the Bavarian with the jetpack...

Image
Unfortunately, it explodes due to a critfailed skill roll.

Image
One of the tank's quad-MKII missile launchers opens up.

Image
And fires all four missiles at the Britannian landship.

Image
The landship loses the last of its health and explodes.

Britannian League
Image
The sole remaining Britannian trooper moves up and exchanges his electro-musket for the Gyro Pistol. He shoots at the peaches, but misses.

Meanwhile...
Image
"Admiral, the situation at the dig site is urgent. We've lost almost all our forces."
"Very well. We're almost there. Let's see if we can turn this battle around."

Britannian Reinforcements have arrived!

Image
The HMLS Conqueror appears on the horizon.

Image
As its primary guns scan the battlefield for threats, its portside sponson and AA guns fire on Bjorn. They both miss.

Image
Its starboard guns take the dinosaur down to only 1 SP.

Image

I know right! Pity the plasma cannon died, but that's just a minor setback. It's still got more, let's see who wants a taste of my railgun!

Whose side in the war is the TLA on?

You only had one guy to start with. Sorry to say, but you're pretty much out of the game -- at least you made a big bang.

My favourite part about this battle is the fact that we get to ogle all of your vehicles at once. That hover tank is just sex.

Sadly, those vehicles tend to get strewn about the landscape with remarkable speed. Enjoy them while you can...
