One of the last things i did before moving across the country was call together some friends for a brikwars game. only one of us had ever played before, and not for a long time, so we kinda BSed the rules (in keeping with the spirit of the game). Buuuuuuut we were pretty caught up in just playing the game, so I only got intermittent pictures of some highlights, unfortunately.
The bottom right corner was the Fire Demons & Undead fortress (my faction), top right was the Technoviking basecamp, upper left was the Lukarian Empire Outpost, including the mission objective radar dish, and lower left in the great foresty fortress dwelt the Animutant scourge, disgusting combinations of small animals and minifigure bodies. Unfortunately the Lukarians didn't arrive until the last minute so you can't see them in these pictures. we stuck some other random guys in there instead
The goal of the Lukarian Empire and Technovikings was to acquire the computer core and return it here, to the radar dish, to transmit a warning about the Animutants
But the Animutants had stolen the computer core and used it in the construction of their golden idol:
The fire demons were just there to fuck with everybody
The Animutant fortress (they significantly outnumbered all other factions)
Also in the middle of the field there were some nasty Dungans worshipping at their altar of burning poop
immediately the Technovikings dumped a bunch of paradroppers into the Animutant fortress, but they weren't able to withstand the sheer numbers of horrible monsters attacking them.
soon after that the rest of the technoviking vehicles arrived and broke against the Animutant walls like waves against the cliffs
meanwhile the Lukarian Empire piddled around in their base
I lost a lot of guys trying to push up through this corridor to get to the Lukarians
So I called in skeletal reinforcements from the evil castle
Midway through the battle, the Dungans managed to summon a new and deadly threat: the poop lords, who immediately caused this Technoviking to shit himself to death
This guy ate a lot of dudes:
This area basically became a death corridor as Technovikings, Lukarians, and Animutants clashed
This whole time I had been harrying the Lukarians with my fire demon hordes, preventing them from being able to commit fully to assaulting the Animutants. Without their support, the Technoviking assault wavered, and was finally crushed by the Animutants
The game ended with a heroic but hopeless last stand by the few remaining Lukarians against a massing wave of demons and undead. (in the background there you can see my hero, the cyborg demon, with a Lukarian grunt impaled on his trident)
including a terrifying scorpian-wielding ninja
the Lukarians fought desperately, littering the bridge with demon corpses
But in the bitter end, they were finally overwhelmed. The radar was destroyed, and all hope of alerting the rest of the world to the Animutant threat was annihilated.
Final overwatch & carnage
