You can put this image in OP because it was featured on the BrikWars news feed.



This is my entry for the halloween hellhunt. My older brother was visiting us on the weekend (he is 20 year old) and I persuaded him to play brikwars with me. Good thing he is an older brother, as he had the patience to play with me a rather big game with gore effects. Warning though! The report is quite long, so to keep you interested to keep on reading I'll show you a little taste of the report:

Image

The report starts!

Image
Usually Brikpass is a boring place where brikwussies hide from normal minifigs. But this day is different...

Image
The leaders of two armies have decided to go through the pass on the same day!

Image
Count Shinypants: "Who are you, and why are you standing on the way of my army? We have important business to do on the other side!

Image
The Dark Lord Krag Hag: "Me and my army are doing the same! Let us go first or die!

Image
Count Shinypants: "Now now! We can pay for passage! No need for violence. How does 200 silver sound like?"

Image
Necromancer: "I could get a new style for my beard with that sum!"

Image
Vampire lord: "And I could rebuild my mansion!"

Image
Players are not amused!

Image
Count Shinypants: "Alright! Men, we are far better than those guys! We shall go first!"

Image
Krag Hag: "We shall crush them like bugs! Get ready men!"

A little note: Every turn there are going to be reinforcements for both armies, until the we run out of them.

Image
The armies line up against each other!

Image
The count's right flank is protected by the harsh bull mercenaries and the Royal standard bearer. The banner grants +1 to skill to all friendly troops withing 4 inches.

Image
The center is made of The count himself and four pikemen. The left flank consists of Buffly Puff the wizard, famous for his obsidian hand, his two adventurer bodyguards, a squad of spearmen and Sir Wolf, who can't be seen properly in this picture.

Image
The Dark horde's left flank is manned by the Necromancer, a squad of the ferocious warriors of the north, and bolstered by a group of just raised skeletons.

Image
The dark lord Krag Hag himself. He rides his fearsome wyrm.

Image
A rather big force of orcs make up the right flank, led by a orc chieftain. The vampire lord is there too.

To be continued...

Turn 1: The Dark horde
Oh! I forgot to mention that I controlled the count's forces and my brother the Dark horde.

Image
The whole left flank surged forwards. The necromancer took a better position on the hill.

Image
Same on the other side too.

Image
The vampire lord told one orc to stay though...

Image
:shock:

Image
I wonder what he is up to...

Image
Uh oh! A blood demon! (note: we gave +1 to all heroic feats, it's a lot better that way)

Image
Meanwhile...
Count Shinypants: "Hey wiz, I just had the best heroic feat idea! Imma going to do it right on my turn! It's -"

Image
Krag Hag: " :studgod: !!!!! (+1 skill to all friendly troops on next turn)

Image
Count Shinypants: "Nevermind...damn."

Image
Necromancer: "Fireball!"

Image
It didn't work out.

Turn 1: Count's forces

Image
Count Shinypants: "Alright...uhh....BRICKS FOR THE BRICKGOD!" This worked out too, +1 skill to friendly troops this turn.

Image
Then the whole battleline attacked! Carnage ensues...

Image
The first attacks of the pikemen failed, but...

Image
...the second line gets FIRST BLOOD! (if the orc isn't counted)

Image
The leader of the bulls gets killed by an javelin accident. The other bulls prepare to make throws...

Image
The flagellant skeleton is crushed.

Image
Swords are drawn!

Image
On the far left side, officer from both sides bite the dust.

Image
As Sir Wolf rides for the vampire his horse is brutally shlashed by orcs..

Image
But Sir Wolf makes an epic roll and polevaults...

Image
...kicking the vampire lord off his steed...

Image
...and hijacking it for himself.

Image
This dude critfailed his attack, and we thought that fleeing from the battlefield was fitting to his face.

Image
Buffly Puff: "Chain lighting!"

Image
:?

They attack...

Image
The necromancer's assistant moves towards the fighting.

Image
The blood demon opens fire on Sir Wolf, acid blood killing the knight.

Image
Then it goes to the horse corpse..

Image
And sucks the blood to itself, reloading its cannons.

Image
KLANG

Image
The vampire lord is back on the game!

Image
The wyrm attacks!

Image
But only manages to chomp a sword.

Image
Dark reinforcements arrive; scorpions, a war elephant with tribal warriors on it, and a force of perzian bowmen.

The bulls fight back bravely.

Image
But two critfail: one falls on the scorpions and is bit to death, and the other's sword gets stuck on a skeleton.

Turn 3: The Dark horde

Image
The Necromancer gathers energy...

Image
....and unleashes it upon the standard bearer! He is ripped apart by the magical blast.

Image
The skeletons press on their attack.

Image
The bull maceman and a skeleton are killed.

Image
The scorpions are filled with bloodlust!

Image
The last bull is mercilessly slaughtered.

Image
These scorpions accidentally sting each other to death.

Image
The Necromancer's assistant goes on the horse and proceeds to throw an explosive!

Image
:twisted:

Image
SPLAT

Image
The other pack of scorpions scurry forwards.

Image
The attacks on the centre are parried.

Image
Krag Hag: "Mortal! I challenge you to a duel!"

Image
Count Shinypants: "So be it!"

Image
The victor of the duel receives +2 to skill for him and his forces for the next turn.

Image
Krag Hag attacks with his flail, which gets stuck on Shinypants' sword.

Image
The flail is breaked.

Image
The dice gods are not with Krag Hag today; his sword bounces off the count's shield.

Image
Seeing his opportunity, count Shinypants beheads Krag Hag.
I miss the pics but the war elephant is not amused and flings Shinypants in the middle of the scorpions, who fail to kill him.

Image
The blood demon sucks even more blood off. That thing has to be stopped before it takes all the gore effects away! :x

Image
The perzian bowmen prepare to release a volley anytime.

Image
The vampire lord remounts and grabs a lance.

Okay. I'm sorry, but it seems that I miss some photos. In general, orcs and spearmen are killed.

Turn 3: The count's forces

Image
The middle forces regroup.

Image
And attack, to no effect.

Image
The assistant is beheaded.

Image
Buffly Puff makes a grand dispel! No magic feats can be done for a turn.

Image
THis also banishes magically bound creatures...

Image
Ew.

Image
Troops on the left flank attack!

Image
But fail to achieve anything.

Image
Same goes with the royal guard.

Image
Yeah.

Image
This viking is ready to throw axes on the right time.

Image
You can't fail at shooting scorpions right?

Image
You guessed it.

Image
Meanwhile, the count, either panicing or making skilled moves, swirls with his chrome sword.

Image
Killing all of the surrounding scorpions!

Image
The pikeman officers repositions himself.

Image
Two axe-gnomes appear.

Turn 4: The dark horde

Image
The necromancer concentrates.

Image
And levitates a javelin!

Image
Shinypants just manages to dodge it...

Image
Necromancer: "Urk! This can't be true..."

Image
Deal with it!

Image
The skeletons collapse, the magic taken off from them.

Image
Shaman: "YEARRGHH!"

Image
KLANG (fail at damage)

Image
:lol:

Image
Two dead heroes on the same turn? Yeahh!

Image
The crossbowmen are assaulted by scorpions.

Image
One dies.

Image
The bitter fight between the counts forces and the orcs continue!

Image
Resulting in a dead viking.

Image
This orc kills his comrade, probably by accident.

Image
The centre lines clash..

The wyrm gets a pike in its chest and is wounded while a dark warrior is killed by a riposte from a maiden guard.

Image
These two can't manage to kill each other.

Image
The elephant mauls a maiden guard.

Image
Massive combined fire on the count! All missed.

Image
The rest just line up.

Image
The remaining viking gets impaled by the vampire lord.

Turn 4: Counts forces

Image
The last crossbowman desperately tries to kill a scorpion, but fails.

Image
Who said wizards can't throw spears?

Image
Ack!

Image
The warrior princess makes the stunning light of the chrome sword blind the war elephant!

Image
Blinded, the beast smacks the warrior princess...

Image
She flies to the middle of corpses.

Image
The last dark warrior is assaulted, but he parries the incoming blows.

Image
Nothing is achieved here. We demand violence!

Image
Thats more like it! When the royal guard tries to get up he is cut in half by the orc chieftain.

Image
Shinypants attacks the perzian leader, but fails to do any harm.

Image

Turn 5: The Dark horde

Image
The elephant, now not controlled, shakes off the howdah...

Image
Shinypants is alive, but the perzian officer is killed.

Image
The elephant then stomps off the field. Buffly Puff falls over, but is alive.

Image
An orc is killed by a riposte and the pikeman officer is lanced.

Image
A dark warrior gets the pike off the wyrm...

Image
...but misses the maiden guard.

Image
The dark warrior now riding the wyrm plays a MIGHTY!! solo!

Image
He, a dark warrior, a maiden guard and her horse are killed. The wyrm survives.

Image
Another orc is killed by a riposte.

Image'
Fire!

Image
The last spearman is killed, and due to friendly fire so is the vampire lord!

Image
The other group take ready themselves for a cc.

Image
The last scorpions fail to kill the last crossbowman.

Turn 5: Count's forces

Image
The orc chieftain is attacked from both sides!

Image
He kills the attacking gnome and Buffly Puff's obsidian arm falls off.

Image
That chieftain sure is tough!

Image
The last scorpions are dispatched.

Image
Shinypants gets up and sees a rather tempting formation.

Image
He takes the javelin off the necromancer's corpse..

Image
...and throws it, killing 4 perzians!!

Image
Fuck yeah!

Turn 7: The dark horde (which isn't quite a horde anymore)


Image
The two perzians somehow manage to kill each other (both critfailed).

Image
This guy critfailed too...

Image
...and shot the escape balloon of the elephant, which then fell on the unlucky perzian's back. The dark horde is defeated!

Image
The survivors gather up.

Image
And continue their journey! Little did they remember that they were going to besiege a castle. I doubt they can do it with this force...

That was the battle at Brikpass. I won, and both me and I brother were proud of the carnage. Hope you enjoyed too!

This is easily my favorite battle report of all time. The fantasy genre is so much interesting to me than sci fi (says the guy with only sci fi posts).

The complete chaos in your photos captures the essence of what this game is really about. If I were a judge, then I'd declare you the winner.

Also you're from Suomi, and that's a step ahead of everyone else.
