Battle at Camp Creek

Postby sahasrahla » Mon Feb 13, 2017 6:23 pm

Introduction:

Image

Camper dude: *sniff* God, I love the smell of nature in the morning
Camper chick: It smells like alien funk and mining equipment to me.
Camper dude: You're just being paranoid, honey.

Image

ZZAAP
Camper chick: GFHFFSHLSPLORTCH
Camper dude: Camper chick! Noooooo!

Image

PEW

Image

Keeboktu the Eviscerator: *sniiiiff* God, I love the smell of sizzling human in the morning.
Assassin Droid: 101001101100010011
Keeboktu: Fine, I'll make sure your next model includes olfactory capabilities.

Image

Keeboktu walks over to the mining site.
Keeboktu: Is the machine working properly?
Death Droids: 0101110001010111000010000
Keeboktu: Excellent.

Image

Bodyguard: The scans are nearly complete, we're 70% confirmed that this is what we're looking for. Just need a way to break through the meteor's protective shell.
Keeboktu: Work faster! I want all scans finished before anyone finds out we're here.

Image

A squadron dispatched by the Humanity Defense Force arrives from the north.
Cmdr. Artemis: We've gotten reports of foreign aggressors in the area, stay alert.
Lt. Johnson: Over there!

Image

Artemis: Poor saps, didn't even know what hit them.

Image

Artemis: Form up men! We've got reinforcements coming soon but I don't feel like waiting for them. Let's show those Coalition goons what happens when they show their ugly faces on our planet!
HDF troops: HOORAH

Overviews:

Image

Image

HDF forces, regular infantry and a few jetpack troopers in the back, one of whom carries a flamethrower with barrel-mounted OTC

Image

Alien and Cyborg Coalition forward basecamp

Image

Cyborg infantry, Robogunners, and an Assassin Droid protecting the crash site.

The humans' objective is to destroy the Coalition camp and find out why they're interested in the crash site. The Coalition needs to DESTROY ALL HUMANS.
HDF reinforcements will arrive at the end of turn 2

TURN ONE:

HDF FORCES

Image

The troopers move up, grabbing cover where they can.

Image

A few of them get close enough to fire at a Robogunner, but can't pierce his armor.

Image

The jetpack troopers take flight.

Image

Unfortunately they all suck at flying. This one lands in a tree...

Image

This one lands in another tree...

Image

And this loser takes a little dip in the creek.

ALIEN AND CYBORG COALITION

Image

Two unarmed cyborgs make a mad dash for weapons.

Image

The Assassin Droid goes for a sniper shot.

Image

Artemis catches it on her laser chain sword

Image

The two robogunners move up and start spraying laser blasts everywhere

Image

Only kills one dude.

Image

Cyborg infantry move up

Image

Keeboktu, his bodyguards, and the heavies remain at their stations in the camp

Turn two coming later tonight or tomorrow, whenever i have time

oh gosh thanks

TURN TWO
Spoiler: show
HDF

Image

flamethrower jetpack guy flops awkwardly out of his tree

Image

He lights a Robogunner on fire! But doesn't kill him.

Image

Jetpack girl decides to stay in her tree. "I meant to land here," she says, but we all know she didn't. She also claims that she meant to miss that shot. HMMMM....

Image

These guys all team fire on the second Robogunner

Image

He is decimated.

Image

Artemis fires!

Image

And takes out a cyborg who got a little too close.

Image

Lt. Johnson fires at the Robogunner but can't beat his heavy armor.

Image

And finally, this guy drags himself to shore. "Man it's almost like my jetpack suddenly started functioning as an scuba tank or something, weird."

COALITION FORCES:

Image

The Death Droids find weapons while the cyborgs rush forward for a bayonet charge, because that's more fun.

Image

They spear two dudes. The third dude is trained not to show fear, but he's totally afraid.

Image

Assassin Droid fires...

Image

One shot one kill.

Image

The heavies begin their (very slow) advance.

Image

Bodyguard: Sir! Scans 90% complete!
Keeboktu: (laughs evilly)

Image

Three OTC Commandos and a demo man arrive on the field
Commando: You bolly blighters started the fight without us?? Bad show, chaps!

TURN THREE
Spoiler: show
HDF:

Image

The commandos immediately rush forward... but they're wearing heavy armor so it'll be a while before they catch up to the battle.

Image

I don't remember who shot this guy...but he died.

Image

Demo man runs past the commandos.

Image

This trooper faces his fears.

Image

Artemis flanks west and fires at the Assassin Droid, but doesn't do enough damage.

Image

This guy catches up with the rest of his team. "Sorry I'm late guys!" he shouts, and then misses his shot. They are all disappointed.

COALITION:

Image

Robogunner takes out a jetpack guy and a trooper.

Image

The two death droids fire...

Image

And the last HDF infantry goes down.

Image

The heavies continue their veeeeeeery sloooooooow advance.

Image

Bodyguard: Sir! All scans complete! The prize is confirmed!
Keeboktu: About time. Start up The Claw!

Image

The Assassin Droid drops his weapon to operate the machinery.

Image

The Claw drops down and begins sawing through the protective crystalline casing.

TURN FOUR

HDF:

Image

Artemis runs up and guts the Assassin Droid. That's a lot of blood for a robot...

Image

"How do I work this... I can't read anything here!"
Utilizing years of experience in technology use and code cracking, she begins smashing random buttons.

Image

Success! The Claw retracts and waits, dormant.

Image

Lt. Johnson runs up and takes a swipe at the last Robogunner...

Image

Seriously who put all this blood into the robots?

Image

Green jetpack guy misses again. This is just not his day.

Image

The commandos all move up and combine fire on the heavies, but their dinky little handguns just aren't cutting it.

Image

Demo man: This is embarrassing, guys. Let me show you how it's done.

Image

HEAVE!!

Image

dink

Image

BOOMSPLOSION

COALITION:

Image

The death droids get their revenge by gunning down Lt. Johnson. (I didn't get a picture but the remaining heavy bumbled his shot).

Image

As the alien forces start to thin, Keeboktu's bodyguards finally step out onto the field.

Image

The battle so far...

Turns five through seven coming tomorrow!!

This battle is pretty cool.  Aquazone armor plus some of the older space stuff really makes things look Brikwarsy.

You've also got a good amount of variety here unit-wise with just enough uniformity to tell who's who.

This Keeboktu guy feels more like a rogue/mutated ZMC guy every minute... The GTC, the garb of his henchmen, his collecting mysterious crystals and sawing through them... Does he have a backstory yet? If not that could work really well for him.

I'm really loving this battle; as Zupponn has said, old space and aqua sets give this an awesome feel.

he needs a backstory but i haven't actually come up with one yet. what does ZMC stand for?

and yes, old school space legos are the best. unfortunately i don't think we'll ever see them again as long as lego can keep selling their star wars stuff

Put a bunch of turns in spoilers because this page is getting hella long to scroll through.

TURN FOUR

HDF:

Image

Demo man, now lacking any explosives, becomes just plain old Man. Man shoots his pistol.

Image

...And avenges Lt. Johnson's death. Good job Man!

Image

Commandos still can't get past the heavy's OT shield. Their damage rolls suck.

Image

Artemis attacks and misses the death droid, how embarrassing.

COALITION:

Image

Both bodyguards fire on Artemis.

Image

She deflects.

Image

Keeboktu himself steps on to the field! Things are getting serious!


TURN FIVE

HDF:

Image

I forgot this guy's turn last round lol. But this time....!

Image

He actually kills someone, omg!

Image

Man finds something on the ground.

Image

Man has now become Beamsaber man, awesome!

Image

The commandos finally get close enough to bring their OTCs to bear.

Image

And there really isn't anything that can stand up to a combined attack from three OTCs simultaneously.
Commandos: This is a right bloody mess, wot wot!

Image

One of the bodyguards eats chain sword. It doesn't agree with his digestive system... or his face.

Image

Beamsaber man is looking for glory!

Image

Keeboktu counters. Ohh, that doesn't look good...

Image

Beamsaber man has become Bloody Exploding Head man.

COALITION:

Image

Only Keeboktu and one of his bodyguards remains. Keeboktu moves up but can't get to anyone. This guy attacks Artemis but fumbles his attack roll.

TURN sixty-nine

Image

Artemis does not fumble her attack roll.

Image

Keeboktu: So, human, it comes to this. I knew from the beginning that you and I would finally face one another in glorious---

Image

Commandos: HOLD UP THERE CHAP DON'T FORGET ABOUT US
Keeboktu: WTF

Image

SKREEEEEEEEEEEE

Image

Final overwatch.

EPILOGUE

Image

Artemis: Now to find out what these aliens wanted here in the first place.
Commando: Looks like some sort of crashed meteorite. I can see something inside, but it's protected by a crystalline shield. We shouldn't do anything until we can scan what kind of material--

Image

Artemis: I'm gonna touch it
Commando: Or that okay

Image

The crystal melts at her touch with a soft hisssss

Commando: By the Queen's royal undies...
Artemis: It's... a pizza?

Image

Commando: Not just any pizza -- this is Chef-Captain Cyle's 68-meat supreme! The only dish ever to make Ankhig jerky taste delicious! It's the greatest pizza in the galaxy!

Image

Commando: Tonight, men, we feast!
All: Hooray!
Green jetpack guy: I'm gluten intolerant!
