January 21 Forum Member Brikwar: Rev vs lawmaster, Part 1

Greetings, folks!

This week I'm going to have a treat for you: a Brikwar waged with two forum members in the same room! It does not happen that often, but when this sort of battle does it never seems to disappoint.

In spite of some wintery and treacherous road conditions in central PA on the afternoon of the battle, yours truly and lawmaster both traveled to a common-ground gaming store not incredibly far from either of us (and by incredibly far, I mean I drove about 45 min to get there). Though I have been knee-deep in medieval battles recently, lawmaster convinced me to bring out the OOF for a good old brik-slugfest. With some combined effort on terrain and base plates, we were able to construct a 40" x 40" battlefield that-like most brikwar battles I play abroad-attracted the attention of onlookers young and old. Anways, here is the set-up:

Turn 0: Deployment

Image

lawmaster's Trovian Army setup

Image

Image

Image

Rev's OOF setup

Image

Image

Turn 1 - lawmaster

Image

Turn 1's can be pretty bland. My own turn one is actually picture as the "deployment." Here is lawmaster's Trovian battle line surging forward.

Image

Here is a little close-up of lawmaster's hero. I don't know its stats, but that weapon is brutal both at range and CC.

Image

Image

At the end of lawmaster's turn, the two OOF snipers materialize using my recon specialty.

Turn 2 - Rev

Image

Image

The OOF press toward the center of the battlefield on both flanks.

Image

Image

Shooting by the sniper and APC minigun eliminate some Trovian cavalry; unfortunately, Trovian horses are intelligent...so eliminating the riders won't be as effective as it usually is!

Image

An Alltimate hardsuit with bombarding launchers rolls a critical failure; the rocket pod explodes.

Turn 2 - lawmaster

Image

A wall-mounted mortar decides to deal component damage to an APC's minigun; the minigun is destroyed.

Image

A Trovian sniper takes aim at another Alltimate hardsuit...

Image

The sniper's bullet aims for one of the wrist-mounted rockets. The damage rolls for the exploding rocket hit crits while the hardsuit's armor rolls stink on ice. Ka-Blam!

Image

Image

The mortar on Rev's right flank crit-fails. The grenade explosion ignites the rest of the explosives being stored on the wall. No more wall.

Image

lawmaster's rather large Mech rounds the corner and threatens the OOF  APC. I think the Mech might dish out 1 point of damage to the APC.

Image

Image

Image

The Trovian battle copter zooms into Rev's territory, dropping payloads of death on an OOF sniper and some commandos.

Image

Some sort of explosion happened back over here on the right flank, near the OOF sergeant hero (buzzed hair). Some cavalry charged, but I think the deaths were from bombs only.

Image

And rounding out lawmaster's second turn, an infamous sea  monster pops out of the lake and tries to nom an Alltimate hardsuit. I believe one size HP is nommed.

Turn 3 - Rev

Image

Image

Combined firings from Hardsuits and snipers eventually deal enough damage to take down lawmasters large mech. In hindsight this might have been a mistake since it left me with very little firepower left over to care for any other enemies this turn.

My Hero also shotguns a knight to death.

Image

Here is an Overwatch of the field after I destroy the mech. My next target is to eliminate the helicopter.

Image

...which I do with abandon. I cannot recall, but one of lawmaster's soldiers may have been wasted in the explosion, while one of my Alltimate suits takes a point of structure damage.

Image

One of the "fallouts" of the crashing helicopter was that a Trovian solider on an Ostri-mount bailed OVER 6"...

Image

One of my heavies (who have disembarked from their turret placements) smacks a Trovian in half as he treats the minigun as a random object in CC  :twisted:

Image

And lawmaster's sea monster continues a rain of carnage. This hardsuit had attempted to disengage in order to shoot the thing. Withdraw reactions took a structure point down, and then a crit-fail on the rocket caused the hardsuit to explode anyway!

Turn 3 - lawmaster

Image

On Rev's left flank, Trovian infantry converge on an isolated APC, many of them diving into the shallow water...

Image

They target the hinges on one of the side panel guns. The chunk they bust off will also be enough for a few shots to waste one of the OOF soldiers inside.

Image

Shooting takes out a CC Comando.

Image

Image

Intelligent Trovian horses skewer a Freadom Fighter!

Image

lawmaster's medic on the right flank decides to attempt Ker-Triage! on a nearby skeleton (apparently chillin out from battles long past). The roll is quite successful.

Image

Image

I believe at this point I tried to use a heroic feat to drop-kick lawmaster's Hero into the nearby Geo-golem with the minigun arm. The feat failed, resulting in my sergeant sinking into the nearby pond; lawmaster decided that he could not get himself out without help! Another Trovian tries to sneak up on the sergeant to no avail.

Image

Image

The Geo-golem attempts to chuck a horse at the sergeant to make him sink even more! Too bad the Golem looses its arm in the process...

Image

And lawmaster's sea monster continues on its rampage, sending its drill-tail in to eviscerate yet another Alltimate hardsuit (I swear, this sea monster is turning into a 6 magnet...)

TO BE CONTINUED...

All the best,
Rev.
