Assyrians+Scythians
Image
The Assyrians, even the burning one, join to fire on the VoL.

Image
They eliminate the entire squad of warriors.

Image
Major Anderson crit fail botches her feat to crash the VTOL into the knightmare, instead crashing it into the big USA pileup in the center of the field. The resulting explosion knocks another size point off the tank, destroys the USA helicopter, knocks 4 size points off the Immortal VTOL, and kills the Assyrian hero. USA General Rhoades manages to bail to safety, however.

Immortals
Image
The Immortal tank moves up into a more strategic position, and then fires its main cannon at the USA mech.

Image
It's damaged further, not very far from total destruction.

Image
The smaller guns on the tank then take out 2 Assyrians.

Image
The Terrorkhan decide to focus their talents on a different hero, aiming at the disrupted General Rhoades.

Image
Isolated from redshirts, the general gets an unhealthy dosing of lead to the chest.

Image
The Phalanxes then move up and take out another Assyrian.

Image
The speeder takes care of the rest with another ramming attack.

Assyrians and Scythians eliminated

Terrorkhan: Requesting air support.
Orbital Command, INF Gomorrah: Granted, 1 aerospace unit on the way.

Image
The terrifying silhouette of an Ahab fighter appears in the air.

Image
"This is Ahab-1 providing air strike, over, specify targets."
Terrorkhan: Aim for the joes in the back alley and the tank, over.

Image
One missile is fired away, wiping out the USA troops in the alley.

Image
The other lands on the tank, knocking off another size point. The USA mecha is caught in the blast, however, and is destroyed. Its mission over, the Ahab then flies away from the battlefield.

TTSJs
Image
The TTSJs combine fire on the tank, knocking off another size point.

Image
Meanwhile, the TTSJ commander feeds the crocodiles traditional latkes, making them fart and become living rockets.

Image
He succeeds, eliminating the last non-vehicle USA units on the roof.

At this point, with the only anti-Immortal unit left being a tank with 1 hitpoint left and given the lateness of the hour, I think it's safe to call it an Immortal victory.

Onboard the INF Gomorrah

Image
Sting: On behalf of Immortal High Command I would like to commend the Sigma Legion for its success in this operation.
The Accountant: I am most honored, my lady.
Sting: You may rise, Accountant.

Image
Sting: It seems that High Command's trust in you both was perhaps more worthy than I had initially assumed. Accountant, you have demonstrated your worth as a strategist, and the Sigma Shard's as a tactician. You have indicated an ability to handle larger allocations of ground and space assets.
The Accountant: I aim only to serve and please the empire.
Sting: Don't get too big for your britches though, boys. Only after the USA threat has been quelled will High Command grant you the requested resources for your ultimate goal.
The Accountant: I understand, my lady.

Image
Sting: Now, as a member of the Immortal Family, I hereby authorize the launch of a TRIMEX-class black hole missile on the planet below.
The Accountant: Wait wait wait!
Sting: Hm, is that hesitation I sensed? Ruthlessness is quintessential to become a true Immortal.
The Accountant: No, my lady, I merely considered the planet's possible strategic use to us. I hear and obey.
Sting: Very well then.

Oh my god Colette this is  :666:
The airstrike plus that crit-fail feat to crash the VTOL at the end basically ended the battle for the anti-immortal forces, imo.

Keep up the amazing work with your briks! :studgod:

Absolutely freaking awesome. You are making the Immortals great again to an extent I didn't think possible.

Also, a moment of silence for the people of Planet New Orleans. Either swallowed by the black hole, crushed to death as buildings were toppled by gravitational waves, heads exploded by the ensuing pressure wave, or to be cooked and/or frozen to death as the planet is knocked out of orbit.

It was presumably destroyed by the Immortals. I had originally wanted to do a companion space battle in LDD but I ended up not having time for it.
