Clash of the Tides: Turn 1

Post by FISH!!! » Sat Jan 08, 2011 4:19 pm

And everything kicks off... There shall be blood... lots of blood...

Undead: Warhead
Image
The infantary marched forth, with ranged support at the back. Zelzeikaza and the Witch zipped off to the tomb/cave/temple.
Image
Mr Munchy started gathering earth and rocks into a ball.
Image
Warhead atemped a armour enhancing spell but his anger muddled it and he failed.
Image
The Witchs spell had similar problems as a chunk of rock dislodged by Zelzeikaza interupted her spell.
Image
Mr Munchy wasn't in range so he waited for enemys to get closer. (like nearly everyone else)
Image
Zelzeikaza, however is in range and ripping the entrance from the temple...
Image
Lobbed it into the Pembridge Knights, but they where saved by poor rolls.

Dark Elves: GeneralOfDeath
Image
The Sharpshooters beelined for the center of the field, while everyone else sort of moved toward the Trollz.

Red Lions: Bragallot
Image
First off the Clerics and Padalins switched places.
Image
Then the Clerics enhanced Karl and the Titans rolls this turn. (+1 mod)
Image
Francais then led the bulk of the army to join up with Pembridge.
Image
Karl and the Titan then when to kill some Troll.
Image
with a sucessful tatical feat Francais organised his men on Pembridges flank.
Image
With no rocks around the Titan settled for a tree...
Image
With a smile, Karl reached for a button on his controls.
Image
His machine's guns go on full auto, he takes this oppertunity to fire off a rifle dart.
Image
One Troll takes the dart in the gut.
Image
Another two explode in a splew of blood.
Image
Leaving one baffled Troll alive, in the front rank.
Image
The feat left Karl's machine's weapons on cool down. (can't be fired next turn)
Image
Due to a failed feat he can't reach the far off Trollz but there's some nice Dark Elves in range...
Image
*Slpat* One Elf is minced by a flying tree.
Image
*Chop* Another takes a shield in the face.
Image
Hmmm.... The Titan strikes a pose.

Trollz: solvess
Image
Taking avantage of Karl's weapon cool down, the Trollz advance.
Image
The Bezerkerz were just out of shot.
Image
The ArrowBoyz are out of range.

Pembridge: Zahru
Image
The Guardsmen and Dwarven Catapult head towards the temple.
Image
Stompy trys giving his men a speach but they're not impressed...
Image
He opts to just lead then forth.
Image
The mage tried spell casting but failed. The cavalry positioned itself for a charge...
Image
The Cataplut took one of Zelzeikaza's arms off but failed to wound him. he's really mad now as the Cavalry and Guardsmen are just out of range of his fireballs...

Image
Until suddenly a whole host of Desert Wanderers turn up right beside him...
Image
So he happily zapps one with a well aimed fireball.

Desert Wanderers: Robot Monkey
Image
Aktar the Great, king of the Wanderers, steps out,
"But the winds of the desert, give us your speed!"
Image
They reach the Skeleton squad...
Image
Aktar blasts two with his fire blast. The rest failed to do much.
Image
Things then go very bad, when the Shade responce raised the dead (critical sucess) They then responsed and coutered killed some warriors and the rest were then blasted by Minor demons.

I suppose we could say...

He got hit by a pain tree :csi:

Now that the horrible CSI pun is out of the way I want to say this battle is amazing - it's really inspired me to get to work on mine again.

Wow! Loving this battle. :D Seems almost Zahru like, which is meant as a compliment of the highest calibre. Ok, so fate turned her back on me this turn but it wasn't all bad, you ok there Robot Monkey? :wink:

I think my so called allies are out for themselves and forgetting the bigger picture, like not getting themselves wasted early on. Anyone else worried about that huge mass of infantry in the centre? Just me? Ah well... :roll: :lol:

Well, I just don't like Undead. Thus, I re-kill them every chance I get.

I'm not sure if this is what you were going for, but I find Mr.Stompy adorable. Loving the battle so far.

There was nothing but bad rolls that could have prevented it; solvess' troops didn't even get a chance to move. Oh I do like squad-based battles ;)
