That all changes today, when a warhead sphincter and his band of immortal deserters arrive on the planet.
Spoilered for those who just want to skip to the battle. Even though the objective will just be scary if you don't read the back story. with the back story, it just comes off as childishinstead of creepy.
Alright, and now for the actual battle! some things of note:
6: this is our first battle to be in the larger Brikverse, and it's story line
7: This is our first battle to use the Allmighty Benny rules, and I must say, coming up with on-the-fly awards really adds humor and camaraderie between players, keeping tension low and games light hearted. Good job with that rule, Stubbhawk!
So, let's begin!
Gagskar fort itself. Built by the indigenous hobgoblins, they where relocated by the AN, allowing them to occupy the castle.
here we see the rag-tag band of feudal soldiers, AN personnel, mercenaries, and two lite-side knights, there to help the transition from primitive weapons to SCI-FI weapons. Also present is the ninja master, leader of the Norwegian ninjas, his kunoichi wife, And dark lord Vladtronn the typically trustable (He and the master are heroes.)
There are also some Crew members of the Nukalavee on shore leave, as well as a sniper.
There is also a bunker, with two men with heavy machine guns. As well as another hero, rocket man Jones.
A mercenary snub fighter, piloted by a psychotic mercenary with his lethal injection bazooka.
And my army, a bunch of the sons of Warhead, rouge Mercs, and the hobgoblin phalanx.
The Trolomancer, one of my heroes, with the ability to use dark magic.
Bloodknight Snaggrot, the hobgoblin commander, who is so sure in his own manliness that he goes to war under a baby blue banner.
The Master's ex girlfriend astride her trained Pterodactyl. Next to her is her ninja trainee/ meckhanik.
Viktii, the sons of warhead, and two maniacs aboard a looted AN scout Shuttle.
Lord Sharq and his ATV riding Vassals.
The first almighty Benny is awarded to my opponent, it is the 2X4 of bringing the measuring implement (Can you guess how he obtained it?)
My army, ready for a siege.
My foe's fort, ready to be besieged.
Using his extensive spetsnaz training, and my special FX, Snaggrot's little PWNie takes out a giant ax...
does a double backflip...
and cleanly bisects an AN accountant.
Earning me the bleeding Chainsaw of first blood.
But my little PWNy isn't the only one who can harness my incredible Special FX budget!
Me: Swish! Clang! Thud! Smack!
Opponent: uhmm... You gonna be okay?
Me: oh, uhm sure... Where where we?
Opponent: just give me the fig, numbskull.
Me: Hey, At least roll the dice, asshole
Opponent: okay... Crap.
The Viking gets caught on the baby blue banner.
And falls painfully on the floor.
Vikings aren't the only ones flubbling their skill rolls, as a hobgoblin performs a self amputation from a malfunctioning M41 pulse rifle. Blasted newfangled Technology!
Thankfully not all hobgoblins are incompetent, and they mow down another AN spear man. I knock over another legionaire with my hand, and forget to put him back up for the photo.
When the above oversight was pointed out, I tried to rationalize it, but failed to make any points, and in short order I begin to spout gibberish, Causing my opponent to have this reaction in order to save face a then happily proclaim That's how I sound with a mouth full of crabs! Amazed at my ability to recreate the lyrics of this scene, my opponent gave me The target of crab mouthed glee.
The master uses his ninja powers to kill the PWNie while the players where distracted. So long, PWNie, may you conquer Equestria with your Hatchet throwing skills.
The Trolomancer tries to use his dark magic to send the Master to the dark realm of a mullion flaming snuggles, but he accidentaly turns the Hobgoblin's arm into a snake instead. It doesn't even bite anything!
Jetpack Jones flies over to the Deadpool copter...
So he can sneak up on a ninja
But one does not simply sneak up on a ninja!
The ninja Critfails his attack.
The mercenary Snubfighter shoots in and steals the Wrench.
The Merc then shots the Wrench into a window.
Dr. Piggy launches a grappling hook!
Probibly shouldn't have skipped the aerodynamics classes, Piggy!
It's a good thing the heavy weapons guy is a physics major!
Finally some success!
Uhm, mr. rifleman, what are you doing up there?
On the plus side, the grappling hook didn't go too far, and it brains the sniper.
My opponent gains the Bo Shudda Benny of friendly fire counter sniping.
The Snub fighter and an alligators upper jaw take flight! Which is strange, since the merc didn't turn any hover features on yet...
[Demoman voice]Ka-Boom![/Demoman voice]
That fort isn't looking too good...
Deadpool decides to give the whole kamikaze thing a shot too.
With his own little twist, of course!
Deadpool: Look ma, no hands!
The wall is obliterated, but the AN grunts miraculously survive!
Have no fear! The engineer is here!
a wimpy Tesla sentry is set up.
Doctor Piggy launches himself at one of the legionaries! (taking all the credit from the heavy weapon guy's acchievment, of course.)
Deadpool and the deadites make way to the machine gun nest.
Deadpool spots the sentry, and engages Spycrab mode!
(For best effect, hum "in the hall of the mountain king")
Of course, with all that set up, deadpool just has to whiff .
Lord Sharq Takes this time to devour the master in a spray of over gratuitous blood effects!
Using the last of his ninja abilities, the Master crawls feebly and bleeds out.
The viking finally wakes up from his concussion...
And he pries the head off of lord Sharq!
Using his troll magic, the Trolomancer allows the squad to use their base plate to better traverse the steep incline!
The heavy machine gun responds by obliterating a deadite.
The Dark Siders decide now it the time to execute Jetpack Jones.
But Jones is too fast, and he jets on top of the Awesomesaurus!
and he makes short work of the demoman. The alien, realizing he's next, decides to make the ultimate sacrifice. opening a secret hatch in the Awesomesaurus, he pushes the self destruct button!
It's a good thing I roll really poorly when I get Melodramatic!
Jetpack Jones uses the added momentum to bisect the Alien!
Before suddenly breaking in half when I add my Bennies to the damage roll!
Heavy weapons guy: Don't worry, I'm a professional, and I have no idea what I'm doing!
ET the extraterrestrial...
The power of love makes the Awesomesaurus's head blow up the Dino pr0n containment tower!
Dr. Piggy ignites the spilled gasoline by the snub fighter...
BOOOOOOM! Dr. Piggy, a legionaire, and the Liteside master all go up in a massive fireball!
The pasty Norwegian ninja takes his claymore and attack General uglyface!
At this point, it becomes obvious this are of the battle field is under a voodoo curse in which no minifig can simply die.
Since I guess they finished their coffee break, the sons of Warhead embark.
One of the maniacs leaps out and goes for the creaky old veteran!
Who is sliced right down the middle!
The old knight decides that desperate times call for desperate measures, and he steals two syringes to inject into the engineer.
whose lower body turns into a giant lizard head.
Deadpool is not amused with the mad scientist.
the engineer grafts his ass back onto the awesomesaurs' legs.
The Viking skewers the steampunk pirate maniac.
The battleax maniac goes after the viking...
And he breaks off his own arm, losing his namesake ax.
The mechasaurus rears up to smash the late Lord Sharq's ATV, but fails to destroy it.
Viktii jumps on top of the abomination.
The engineer is bisected (lending more evidence to my voodoo curse theory.)
undeterred by the lock of arm or ax, The maniac hereafter known a Robert picks up the dead veteran and attempts to beat the viking to death with his corpse.
The viking responds by killing the newly christened Robert.
Deadpool attacks the Litesider padawan, who deflects Deadpool's blade...
But completely forgets about Deadpool's other blade!

The Scout ship hovers over...
The ship docks...
And the dinosaur pr0n is taken! Victory for the Immortals!
Story time! (no pics of this)
