Chains Are On (Round 2)

Postby Craigallot » Fri Aug 10, 2018 5:03 pm

2 rounds in one day thanks to speedy orders! :csi:

Magio's enforcers - TheVengefulOne

Image

Magio loads his sword into his crossbow, combining the damage of both!

Image

Lots of 6's mean he damages the avatar further, nearly killing it!

Image

The death seekers and war beast finish the job.

Image

Halberdiers kill the icon, while gunmen shoot a shieldbearer.

Image

The lancers charge the unfortunate crossbowmen...

Image

One is killed outright, the other miraculously survives and is knocked away and disrupted (which ironically enough saves him from taking further trampling damage).

I can make this man. I can let him touch the butt. I cannot promise his safety

Bull fanatics - ninja-bait

Image

The phalanx wanted to go for the war beast, but found the avatar's corpse in the way, so they marched around, into the death seekers. Phalanx are heavies and can't move and attack on the same turn, but they're in a good position to start the fight on their next turn.

Image

Rax picks up a shieldbearer. "YOU FLY! RAAHH!"

Image

He throws him at the gunmen...

Image

The throw fails and the shieldbearer ends up disrupted in a precarious position.

Image

Rax, much to his chagrin, isn't close enough to reach an enemy.

Image

Shieldbearers choose the target they can more safely reach, move in and kill a halberdier.

Image

Crossbowmen move up and shoot a death seeker.

Image

The disrupted crossbowman picks himself up and fires at the lancers, but, probably still dizzy, crit fails and misses.

James the Black - RedRover

Image

Lord James continues his steady advance. "Visors down, arms up, shields in front of you! Look lively!" he says, reliving his conquest of the eastern hinterlands and seemingly unaware he's giving orders to royalty.

Despite the awkwardness of the situation, his tactical presence does remind himself (and his allies) to keep their wits about them and protect themselves, giving them +1 armour against the next attack that will hit them. [I kinda messed up since he was supposed to go last so this effect won't come into play until the start of round 3]

Aloysius and Lorreaine - Duerer and Falk

Image

The ribault opens fire across three arcs. With the enemy partially hidden behind their tower shields, this seems somewhat optimistic even for a skilled gunner like Aloysius. But wait! Princess Lorreaine is sending the light reflecting off her helmet into the legionnaires' eyes...

Image

This causes them to drop their shields, which leads to two of them getting killed by the ribault.

Image

Lorreaine then takes a defensive position in front of her allies.

Lucia's cutthroats - Archduke

Image

Cutthroats in the front move up and fire, this time without aim penalties. It results in one shieldbearer falling.

Image

The other two throw their weapons to the top of the cart and climb it.

Image

The height of the cart gives them some extra range, but Aloysius is still 3" too far away, not to mention partially covered by the ribault. They try their luck anyway and shoot at him, one actually managing a hit, but it doesn't beat Aloysius' armour.

Image

The cart then advances towards the gunmen.

Image

The legionnaire keeps pace with it, careful to stay out of Lorreaine's reach, and ready to (at least attempt to) react should she try something.

Image

"Why do they have artillery, and we don't?!" Lucia says angrily.

Image

As if on command, a Falx ballista, complete with crew, rolls onto the battlefield. Maybe they got lost looking for a different battlefield or position to reinforce? With the current (lack of) Falx leadership, anything is possible. It is a size 3 Gun with Use: 5, Range: 14 and Damage: 3d6. If the crewmen operate it together their highest roll counts. [Critical success]

Image

"Now THAT is what I'm talking about!" Lucia jeers.

Image

Now accepting orders for Round 3!
