First encounter

Postby Zahru II » Thu Aug 13, 2009 11:06 am

Howdy peoples! Me and forum member-friend of mine zirrian had a big faceoff today, and we have some sweet pictures to share with you guys:

Image
The warring sides were zirrian's tekkmen mob with truck and mech led by commander Pedro (si senor!) and my ork horde with additional centaur mercenaries.
Image
Image
Image

First turn, my various forces sprinted towards zirrian's and first blood was made by my awesomeosaurus-mounted ballista.

Image

Image
This was followed by 2 other casualities from the tekkmens.

In return, my centaurs suffered some damage, and on was taken down by the sniper.
Image

zirrian's mech marched to set my boys on fire... which he ultimately failed at the damage roll. As a response, my orks smashed the mech's leg, which fell over and ultimately became useless for the rest of the battle.
Image

zirrian's rollings were quite rhapsodic: for example he managed this monstrous amount of damage with his longrange squad:
Image

As it was all focused on one centaur, easily overkilling him.
Image

On the other hand, a combined attack of 3 wasn't enough to scrath another horseman.
Image

S'more bloodshed went on when finally Pedro (si senor!) was deployed and massacred another centaur.
Image

Image
The orks surrounded the tekkmen killing some, and critting one out of existence with a ridicolous amount of damage (the first of many).

Image
Overview so far, minor losses on both sides.

Image
The trucks chaingun suddenly malfunctioned and broke.

Image
The truck relying on his momentum rammed his way through. The centaurs bailed off, one of them critting a length of 11" (and fell off the bed were this took place. note: from now, we'll play only on ground).

Image
Again an obscene amount of damage...

Image
With which my centaurs were annihilated for good (note: zirrian is a poser).

Image
Meanwhile on the right flank, men and ork valiantly fight each other, havin small losses so far.

Image
My orc hero attempted to leap in and carnage the guardian's (guys with spears), but failed and just fell in, koncking himself out for a round.

Image
Trolls engage! Critting a shoota out of existence again.

Image
The other troll kindly bashes the remainders of the left flank into pulp.

Image
The tekkmen on the right flank begin to diminish... (or how is that spelled)

Image
Ambush! The orks realize the ranged guys oppose greater threat so they march and kill some.

Image
The shooters fire into the orks, butchering nearly half of them.

Image
Pedro (si senor!) guns down an ork.

Image
The guardians obliterate the survivors of the right.

Image
The battle rages on, taking his casualities...

Image
The ork hero gains conciousness, getting into berserk rage, but slays only one guardian.

Image
A volley of arrows decimate the guardians.

Image
Double kill! The ballista takes down two men on the truck. The driver got off to fight but met his fate by the troll's club.

Image
The overview of the extremly chaotic war.

Image
A combined blast takes down the troll, who squishes a single tekkman.

Image
Pedro (si senor!) guns another ork.

Image
The ballista owns 2 tekkmen on the right.

Image
The remaining troll clubs down 2 shoota.

Image
Even I don't know what going on in this picture. Bonus: where's Waldo?

Image
Tragedy! Ork hero is slain by a guardian!

Image
Revenge! The guardian's are finished by a rain of arrows.

Image
The troll mauls the last shootas.

Image
By this point, zirrian's men we're only 4, causing individual losses with well-done shots. Pedro (si senor!) suddenly realizes this battle is lost and does the most logical, yet cowardish movement a commander could ever make:

Image
Surrender!

Image
The battlefield. Thrashed and littered by dead bodies.

Image
The remaining four tekkmen were chained up and taken away as slaves.

Ork victory! WAAAGH!

Afterthoughts:

- Centaurs are too fragile for cc (even with 2hp).
- Awesomeosaurus-ballista is awesome.
- The fenomenon of "critting sby out of existence" is born.

My happy feets are all over the battlefield ^^

The next battle will be the free of my four people...because we left nobody alone.

Your orcs are evil. They're just marching off with those big stupid grins on their faces despite having lost half their comrades. :) I hope you had some kind of inventory going, 'cos getting all of your own stuff back out of that pile must have cost some time (even though the armies are well-distinguishable from one another, lolz). The ballista-mounted dinosaur is indeed awesome, but where does the driver keep getting those spears from? (don't tell he he put them in the dino's butt). I was kinda hoping you'd use the demon again, but I saw no warlock so meh. Edit: just noticed where he really puts them, rofl. All we need now is a dinasour with clipping axes in front of him! Did I say that out loud? Minifigs will hate me.

If you watch closely, you'll see that there are pin-holed bricks on the dino's side, where extra ammo is.

And yeah, it'was kinda messy to recover stuff, but except for silver pikes everythin is well-distinguishable.

Yeah, I noticed in time to edit my post. Some clever thinking. Next you're prob going to tell me that whip is not to spank the dinosaur but that he is actually skilled enough to pick replacement spears up with them :) The unit interests me though, so I'll have to bug you some more. Does it have close combat skill as well? And what would happen if the driver died before the dinosaur did? Say, if he was sniped or something.

Well, I have ideas if situations like such (though never actually had to use them). He could charge and trample (massive horns powa!). But the situation with the rider sniped is interesting. Probably it'll be followed by an event most suitable for brikwars: the dino is driven mad and begins random rampage killing friend or foe alike :twisted:

Damn, I feel sorry the tekkmens mech, being taken down before having any sort of serious effect. That the problem I find with mechs, while the look cool and can be highly mobile (being able to step over obstacles n' such), they have one massive flaw: leg joints. One such flaw which my opponent never fail to take advantage of, especially when they are standing next to lava.
Cool battle by the way, not a big fan of rigid units however. Much prefer skirmishers.

Needed baseplates.

Pesgores, EVERYONE knows your views on baseplates and Brikwars battles. You don't even have to say it.

Also, most people (including me) agree with you: Baseplates do improve the appearance of battles and let you construct better terrain. So however many baseplates you see on the battlefield probably represents the largest number of baseplates the player can put there. The problem is that baseplates are expensive and relatively useless for building, so most of us have other priorities when we're spending money on LEGO.

EDIT: If you really want to be self-righteous about baseplates, Strana and ROC's latest battle uses no baseplates at all.

Yup. I'm focusing on scenery, so far I was busy with amassing my armies.
