Xalen - Bragallot

Image

Xalen decides that it's time to ride in style and conjures a drake mount.

Image

He begans storming towards the hold, and tries to swing at Gork but misses.

Image

The löwengard kill the last of the skeletal archers.

Image

Then they confront the bone beast.

Image

The cleric miraculously revives the engineer. Yay!

Majisto and Gallikronn - mgb519

Image

Gallikron chomps at Beaky but fails to do damage. Awk-waaard...

Majisto fails to cast anything this turn.

Gragh the Bone Behemoth - Predator

Image

Nothing special this round for the skellies, all but Gragh fails to kill anyone. At least it axes another swordsman.

Liana Crowclaw - Scratch

Image

The battle cleric critically succeeds with his new powers and heals both Gallikronn AND Arthel! (+1hp).

Image

He then passes a fallen lance to lady Liana.

Image

She uses it knock away Gragh.

Image

While damage rolls were pitiful, it knocked the bone behemoth quite far away.

Image

The Titans and infantry units engage in combat, but no damage is done.

Ferdinand Von Bragstein - Silent-sigfig

Image

Ferdinand works together two warmachines, creating a pain train, which he embarks.

Image

The contraption roadkills 2 orks; Ferdinand shots at Gork and scores a hit!

Image

The ork leader is torn apart by the volley of the deathmachine.

Valeera Silverleaf - Silverdream

Image

Valeera attempts to inspire the horses, but her equine is quite bad and she fumbles. After that, she kills an orkboy.

Image

Silver spears and black orks continue to fight, the elves kill 2 while lose one of their kin.

Image

Longbowmen fire a volley at the juggernaut, but its high armor soaks up all damage.

Arthel Wolfsbane - heavyfishcannon

Image

After a pitiful volley of crossbow bolts, Arthel charges and mutilates the left leg of Beaky, who loses 1 hp.

Image

The storm titan deals a crushing blow to the Infernus, who loses 2 hp, and an arm.

Beaky - Robot Monkey

Image

Beaky grabs Arthel and eats him! (-1hp)

Note: Arthel may attempt to free himself/be freed by others from the belly of the beast, however, he'll receive a stacking -1 armor debuff from this turn on, and will be dealt 1d6 stomach acid damage each turn.

Image

In an Image manner, Beaky burps up some demon bile, which kills 2 löwenguard.

The remainder of Gork Steelhide's army - Zupponn

Image

The Juggernaut squashes a dwarf into pulp, while the warmachine sets to response fire.

Ezra von Bragstein - Rev. Sylvanus

Image

CG belches 2 knights to death.

Image

EvB zaps a third one down.

Image

The mad genius hops on the necrotitan, which begans to hack the storm titan away, without any success.

The Black Centurion - Pwnerade

Image

The centurion breaks free, and goes on a rampage, killing 2 dwarves.

Image

The Infernus uses demonfire and damages the storm titan (-1hp).

Other attacks failed and not pictured.

Apollyon


Image

After getting back to the saddle, Apollyon taunts the npc crossbow orks on the fortifications. Ork #1: 'ey, dat's rude!

Image

Ork #2: He has a point, Orvuk, you do smell like shite.

*Ork#1 shots a bolt right into the forehead of Ork#2, who gets decap'd and hilarity ensues*

Image

Ork#3: 'ey, that was unnecessary!
Ork#1: I don't care, nobody fucks with me and my personal hygiene issues!
Orkficer: 'ey you stop dat, get back in line or I'll kill you gits both!
Ork#4: Dibz on Orvuk killing da boss!

As you could see, NPC crossboworks are too busy this round and will not fire.

Image

After that, Apollyon and the knights charge at the CG (it seemed a more suitable target considering the state of the field).

Blaze Ironbreaker - lawmaster

Image

Miners successfully dug under the keep! (note that they still have their barrel of gunpowder with them)

Image

The Crimson Guard attacked the Juggernaut and scored a hit! (-1 hp)

Image

Ironguts kill an ork and fail to hit the Centurion. Blaze was out of reach of any action this round, for shame.

Drakhirri - Cytheran

Image

The Drakhirri would've continued their glorious charge, but they got fired at by the warmachine.

Image

With sixteen points of damage dealt, only the lord survives (-1 hp).

Image

In a fit of rage he dashes and cuts down the crew ork.

Image

As more and more blood is spilled, the Amplifier continues to power up...

Is it just me, or do battles on Medivo basically boil down to the herores and everything size 3 or above matters, while the troops are just there to provide flavor (in  more ways than one).

That needs to be our next forum battle variant: a CoD multiplayer rip-off.

Is it me, or do sci-fi battles usually boil down to vehicles and tanks running amok while troops get squashed under their treads...idk, I kind of like it that the big baddies have the most impact.

Depends on the universe.

I always figured that was the minifig's lot in life to begin with: make everything else look good in comparison. Not to mention, everything but the minifigs are way tough, so when minifigs fight, they either slaughter each other, or do minuscule damage against big stuff.

That's about right, but minifigs are a lot more versatile.  I think of them more like snowspeeders up against AT-ATs - if you just send them in for conventional combat they'll get creamed, but they have all kinds of unconventional options that AT-ATs can't adapt to.

What stubby said.

Another trick is to massively Zerg Rush the bigger creations, starting with the weakest one and working your way up - it's better to take 1 out in 1 round than to deal 1 point of damage to all of them each turn.

I also remember spreading out my archers in 1 battle to limit the amount of damage the RW could do, which was pretty effective. Of course, in battles this big you don't wanna put Zahru through that :lol:

The Zerg Rush works fine if you have heavy infatry in Medievil.
In Sci-Fi though, I wouldn't recommend it. Just hit the cover with most troops and focus on making stuff explode.
