Hey, let's raid Isere

Dozens of random attackers are swarming Isere, There's no time to figure out who or why, because they're coming right at the base!

It's not known who has organized the zerg, there are uniforms of several different armies present. A number of strange characters seem to be leading the charge though

Vaclav and one of his Officers, Moskal are in command of the base, with only a skeleton crew manning the training camp, they have to do their best to prevent damage to the base and keep their heads.

Room for two players, I won't be reserving slots, the slots will be rotating, meaning anyone who's around when I'm doing turns is fair game.

Sorry I took forever to post this, I got a new computer and then went vegetative while I toiled away on it for like 3 weeks. The pictures have been on my phone for weeks and just never got around to posting this.

Turn 2

On the right flank, Bratva soldiers fire into the woods at the attackers

Image20190820_210240 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Double Overskill, two headshots :tiger: , the third misses

On the left flank, the truck tries to fire into the treeline too, but suffers a critical fail malfunction, and the gun jams... and explodes

The right turret fires at the Insurgent tank, but misses.

CRITICAL FAIL
A trooper in the bunker goes to shoot... rolls a 1, and then a divine power reminds him that he doesn't actually have line of sight on enemies.... So his action is retconned... and he falls out of the tower and stuns himself.

Reinforcements from the yard start to arrive

SECRET FACTION!

Spies!
Two of the trainees slip away from supervision, and raid the armory

Image20190820_211921 by John Thumb, on Flickr

Image20190820_212027 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Bratva really should do a better job at vetting it's recruits.

Image20190820_212232 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Right flank, Echelon sharpshooters take aim

Image20190820_212238 by John Thumb, on Flickr
This time they pulverize the defenses, their guns shred the plate armor on the wall and someone's head gets exploded by a gauss rifle dart

Bratva Corporal: LADDERS! LADDERS!
Mercs in the woods charge the ladder, a fury of gunfire is exchanged but somehow no one on either side gets shot in the burst.

A Jump Jetter hits the wall

Image20190820_213503 by John Thumb, on Flickr

Image20190820_213601 by John Thumb, on Flickr
It's too much. armor is cleaved through in a short burst and then something blows up, demolishing it

Image20190820_213635 by John Thumb, on Flickr
The Shield at the gate screams for the attention of allies, directing it toward the swarm charging the gate behind the tank.
Bratva Shield Bearer: FIGHT! FIGHT!!!!
Image20190820_213746 by John Thumb, on Flickr

Image20190820_213749 by John Thumb, on Flickr
An iceworlder merc gets shot in the face.. and a stray round hits the gatorman behind him who takes cover

Image20190820_213813 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Mercs rush to cover the gatorman, almost as if he's their leader...

Mission Intelligence gained: Macho Man, Gatorman and Big Choppah are leading their respective fronts, Kill them to force a temporary retreat on that flank

Image20190820_213847 by John Thumb, on Flickr

Another Bratva soldier gets hit in the exchange

Image20190820_214100 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Surprisingly, the three of them only manage to kill the weird tentacle mutant, he bleeds orange and dies.
Not Squidward: WIOAJWIOJAIOJOJJJJJJ!......
Image20190820_214300 by John Thumb, on Flickr

They return fire, and Overkill wastes two of them and another is critically injured

Image20190820_214509 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Seeing as the left wall is already down, the left ladder team puts it up the hill instead

Image20190820_214439 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Big Choppah pushes through his men and screams at the wall, seeing Vaclav defending it
Big Choppah: EY CAPE BOY. COME OUT ERE AND GET YER EAD CHOPPED BY BIG CHOPPAH
Image20190820_214741 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Vaclav: Try not to bleed on me when I kill you, please?
Duel entered



Image20190820_215027 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Vaclav attacks him.


Image20190820_215243 by John Thumb, on Flickr
CRIT FAIL
Choppah drops his Choppah....

Image20190820_215332 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Vaclav stabs him straight through the chest with the laser sword
Choppah screams in agony and thinks he's tough enough to keep fighting
Choppah: RRRRAAAAHHH.. GONNA TAKE MORE DEN DAT TO STOP BIG CHOPPAH

Vaclav pulls the sword out

Image20190820_215423 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Spins...

Image20190820_215506 by John Thumb, on Flickr
And slices his dumb head off, it goes airbourne.

The last thing Choppah sees is his own decapitated fat ass hitting the ground before expiring. His troops flee in panic

I haven't bothered to take tally of how many kills, its easier to see what's still left .
The perimeter has fallen on all three flanks.
Base Defenses are still active


Right flank - Being overrun
Center - Contested
Left Flank - Secure for the moment.

Both sides have taken heavy casualties.

The Base itself remains untouched, but it's security has been compromised.

Attackers are losing morale, At the start of next turn, all of the retreating troops will roll a skill check of 50/50, if they fail it, the troops runs home to mommy and leaves the battlefield

Moskal and Vaclav chase down the retreating mercs, shooting at them

Vaclav doesn't have a gun, so he grabs Choppah's axe and hurls it

CRITICAL HIT

Stuck in the ladder, a Bratva soldier gets a series of lucky hits, and Macho man is killed

Image20190904_231842 by John Thumb, on Flickr
All but one of them misses.. and he barely damages the armor...

Image20190904_231913 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Elsewhere, the double agents try to attack the back door of the base.. but they roll snake eyes... shit


Image20190904_231953 by John Thumb, on Flickr
The lone guard notices them and gets a free attack... then he critrolls and gets a shot at both of them

Image20190904_233108 by John Thumb, on Flickr

1 dead

Image20190904_233235 by John Thumb, on Flickr
On the other flank, attackers keep clambering the walls and firing at the Bratva troops, but they miss again. The Echelon troops with the long guns also miss.. again

Image20190904_233343 by John Thumb, on Flickr
Critfail!

Two of the soldiers start bitching about their KDR being threatened... and they fall back.

The second double agent falls dead next to his partner. They didnt get far.

Image20190904_233913 by John Thumb, on Flickr
One of the guys on the roof shoots at the hooded figure and misses so spectacularly that he decides to just give himself a free attack, and he shoots him in the face.

Image20190904_234007 by John Thumb, on Flickr
A guard on the bastion with a long range weapon sees him up there

Image20190904_234050 by John Thumb, on Flickr
and picks him off
--Decided to call it game. it was over at this point.---

Image20190904_234448 by John Thumb, on Flickr
The remainder of the attackers, Just Syndikat and First Echelon goons that were tagging along with the zerg decide to pack up and leave. This fight can't be won, and they've already caused a lot of damage. This was a disaster, but it wasn't a complete failure.

Vaclav gives a speech to the surviving defenders
Vaclav: What a show!, so many dead assholes! The perimeter is wrecked though... Good job on holding the line. Besides that rampaging tank not a single mook stepped foot in the compound... Well, except for those traitor recruits.. We're going to have to start vetting our recruitment better... Take 20.. and then start cleaning the bodies out of the road and compound..

We gotta get this place defensible incase someone else shows up... Engineers will be here shortly to start repairs.. and Intelligence will look into who the hell put that raging horde onto us.. I saw at least 5 different uniforms out there.. No idea wtf that was all about. You're dismissed!
Image20190904_235215 by John Thumb, on Flickr

Final Kill count
Bratva (Falk) - 27, plus 1 vehicle
Attackers (Hatknight) - 11, plus 1 vehicle and base defenses almost completely destroyed

Story Consequence: The next attack on Isere will not be as damaging as it would have been if the compound was wrecked. Isere may survive the chapter when it concludes, unlike Basil
