Mechanized Slaughter

Post by crimsonanarch » Fri Feb 22, 2013 10:47 am

Hi guys,

This was my second Brikwars game ever!, although i must admit, when i say Brikwars, it was more of "read the rules a couple of times, promptly forgot, and then made up some shit."

My childhood best friend was over from NZ, so after spending a couple of days making stuff, it was time to break it all :)

There were about ~16 vehicles on each side, and about 50 to 60 minifigs as well. (we didn't count, so i think i snuck a few more in there :) I used some random buildings and some civilian vehicles to create the 'town'. The green and tan baseplates are supposed to be water :)

It took us about 8 hours to finish this battle. We started around 10pm, went on till about 5 in the morning :studgod: and then finished up the next day

Here are a few photos, there is a link to an imgur folder http://imgur.com/a/HmWjl. Taking photos was kinda a low priority tho, so there were quite a few crucial moments that were not captured :( About half of these photos were taken with a phone, so quality is mixed.

Destruction

In the end i won, primarily because of those few extra minifigs. I also used mediks to put people back together, while Zac used them as vehicle drivers :roll: Sorry Zac.

I particularly like the big yellow thing in the top right of the first picture. It looks like it can do serious damage.

There is something fun about taking a bunch of random constructs for a game like this, which is different to having nicely uniformed armies. It looks more chaotic, kinda like Mad Max of Lego...

Nice way to introduce yourself to the forums, though I wish there was more pictures.

This is half of what Brikwars is all about, don't feel bad.

This battle looked amazing, I always do love mechanized carnage. How long did it take, though? I eventually had to stop doing big mechanized battles because just rolling all the dice involved was tedious.

Some of these vehicles look cool -- you should do an Armory post about them. Especially the big yellow one, which probably qualifies for Superheavy Death Tank status.

Hey thanks guys for the warm welcome.
Nice way to introduce yourself to the forums, though I wish there was more pictures.
Next time i will be much better in terms of taking photos. Also, my photographer(my brother) decided he didn't want to stay up till 5 in the morning :fist:

This took 8 hours, so yeah, kinda long. If I have time next week I will do an Armoury Post, although i have changed some of these vehicles, and i need to think up a good backstory lol.

Wow, the longest battle I've ever staged was about two and a half hours. I could never have that kind of patience.

In long battles I always stretch or run around (but still in sight of the table) when it's not my turn, it calms you down and distracts your opponents in one fell swoop :twisted:
