The New War - Finale

Post by Dienekes22 » Sat Feb 02, 2019 3:41 am

Finally here, folks. Strap in and get ready for the long overdue finale. I've forgotten a whole bunch so it'll be a fun ride for all of us. Also imgur is being a bit a jackass with how it's uploaded and sorted my photos so I hope it's all here.

Image
Image
Liossans make slow progress across the torn ground that used to be the palisade.

Image
A crossbowman scores a kill.

Image
Not far away the story repeats itself.

Image
Crossbowman advance.

Image
Fierce fighting occurs in close quarters.

Image
It goes poorly for the defense.

Image
Cavalry advance from the rear, ready for the killing blow.

Image
Image
Mercenaries hit hard, the front moves against Ancelot.

Image
Ready... aim...

Image
Fire!

Image
The VIPs make ready to dash to safety.

Image
The Vasli move as a unit toward the dock.

Image
A crossbowman finds revenge.

Image
Ancelot shouts an order.

Image
One last shot.

Image
A stunning impact.

Image
The bolt smashes through a civilian and 3 Liossans.

Image
Ancelot makes the most of his dire situation.

Image
Rangers take defensive positions.

Image
The Aethannians move quickly, securing prisoners.

Image
"You're mine!"

Image
A great initial success.

Image
Image
Image
Image
A quick Overwatch.

Image
Ranged units use their height advantage with incredible efficiency.

Image
Image
Ancelot, surrounded and without aid, falls to many wounds.

Image
The Liossans collide with the civilians.

Image
Cavalry makes a well timed charge, cutting off the VIPs.

Image
The fight is on with no casualties.

Image
Men move up against the cavalry.

(Some indecipherable photos here... I think the ballista crew tried to fire again? I don't know. There was a photo of a nat 1 so something went wrong)

Image
A good shot nets a kill.

Image
The VIPs slip away.

Image
Vasli infantry swarm the cavalry to make the VIP escape possible.

Image
They do absurdly well.

Image
Things do not look good for the last crossbowman.

Image
Not well at all.

Image
The Raiders continue their pillaging.

Image
The VIPs board under arms.

Image
Off they go into the sea.

Image
With no one to oppose them, attacking ranged units rain steady death.

Image
Vasli cavalry fight to the last.

Image
Liossan command looks out over the water at the VIPs sailing slowly away.

Image
The Raiders pull back their prizes to make their getaway.

Image
Not a bad day to be in the prisoner business.

Image
Image
Image

Final Overviews.

And that's all she wrote. Thanks for playing!

Wow, what a violent end to an epic battle! Glad I got the VIPs out in the nick of time. GG to my opponents, and thanks for hosting dienekes!
