Stockade Skirmish - Turn Two

Post by Kommander Ken » Sun Mar 08, 2015 5:51 pm

Welcome back to The Stockade Skirmish!


Draklon Raiders (Silent-Sigfig):


Image

A section of the tree that Lucer knocked over is shoved into the icy-cold river, making a near-perfect platform for the raiders to cross with.



Image

Image

The Raiders move up; some daring the slippery rocks across the river, and some running toward the other side.



Image

These guys try to shoot some Frostbornians, but don't accomplish anything.



Image

Lucer moves up toward the bridge and sprints for the barricade.



Image

Image

As he gets in range of response fire, he mockingly pauses in midstride as it glances off him like nothing, then proceeds forward.



Image

Farcus readies a heroic response action and jumps up to intercept the Draklon hero. “I think not!” he growls.



Image

Lucer grits his teeth, unheeded, “well—“ Rolls are made and Farcus fails by overwhelming odds. Lucer slams into the barricade like a hockey player, sending it and all units behind it sprawling backward.



Image

“—I do!”


Image

Luckily for Frostborne, both swordsmen survive. However all three of them are disrupted.

Image

Image

By some dumb luck, this guy lands safely away from the freezing current.



Image

Lucer stands still and looks badass while the macemen behind him move up the bridge. The Draklon raiders have almost taken the bridge at this point.



Image

The two Draklon champions charge forward and try to jump the river.



Image

Image

The champions ignore how silly they look in mid-jump, however the roll is so successful they overshoot the jump and end up behind the Frostborne defensive line! This was totally what they had in mind.



Image

Frostborne response fire follows. One doesn't even reach his desired target and one is easily parried because the Champion is shielded.



Image

The Iron Crossbow chariot moves up and takes aim, hoping to destroy a barricade.



Image

Unfortunately it fails to even fire correctly.




Frostborne Villagers (Sir Sporktimus):


Image

The two village archers take aim and combine fire on a single Draklon soldier.



Image

Once again, one misses while the other hits and does enough damage to kill, this time downing the front-most foot soldier leading the assault over the rock pathway.



Image

Instead of floating away, the body is lodged between some of the rocks while blood begins to spill into the water.



Image

This village archer tries to take a shot at the disrupted spearman but she misses.



Image

All of Haldor’s men take position behind the fallen pine tree.



Image

Haldor himself stays still and looks off across the battlefield, eyes locking onto something.



Image

He then bends down and attempts to rip out the tree stump right from the ground, gritting his yellowed teeth as he struggled with it. “GRRRR-“



Image

He crit-fails his heroic feat roll however and ends up slipping and falling, his heavy hammer dragging his body back down the slope. “-GODEL DAMMIT!”



Frostborne Warriors (Dienekes22):

Image

The icebreakers continue their effort pushing the cart in front of the gates.



Image

Having moved the cart to a suitable enough place, they attempt to disable the cart by tearing off some of the wheels. They won’t budge however, and will probably need a weapon or something to dislodge them.



New Arrivals – The Norsemen (Scratch):

Image

The Draklon forces aren’t the only ones interested in the stockade. A small band of plundering Norsemen has arrived, with the intent of beating back the Draklon forces and taking the loot for themselves.



Image

“Haha, and not a moment too soon!” laughed their leader. “Those damn Draklon dogs weren’t expecting us!”

Waiting on orders from the Frostborne Warriors, then we can get turn three underway. :D
