[HH] Struggle for Brickingrad - Turn 2

Postby AZKAMAT » Tue Oct 17, 2017 1:48 pm

Previous Part

Image

Opening up the BNP turn, one of the lead comboints runs slobbering to one of the fresh corpses. What is it doing?

Image

Oh good King, it's eating him!

Wait, something strange is happening over at the comboint hive...

Image

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAfmVDgbSxI&list=PLqrpBs-2lgN22a2-KmG6bJ6CkOiRDEIi2&index=13

As the existing comboint feeds, the hive births out a fresh one. It's headed straight for the ongoing battle! How is this biologically possible!? Only Koincidence could essplain it...

Image

A combint tries to rush into one of Ridgeway's fire ports, but before it reaches it rifle fire lashes out and blows the thing back!

Image

As the comboints near the walls, some fire their plasma-pulse guns up at the defenders.

They're poor shots, but their numbers let them send up so much firepower that a few are bound to find their mark.

Image

The comboint gunfire sends this second-to-last Pangou militiaman careening backward off the wall.

As the blaster shots hit his body he lets out a Wilhelm scream.

Image

Over at the other fire port on the east wall, a black comboint tries to force its way in.

Image

Its ambitions to feed are denied by Veridian reaction fire.

Image

As the comboints rush the Durdedotte position south of the fort, the militia cut the first few down with rifle fire.

Image

The men brace themselves for another wave of the monsters.

Image

he fist comboint of the second wave runs right into the sights of the waiting anti-tank rifleman.

Image

He does not miss, and explodes the thing's body into a gory fountain with a "crah-KOOM" heard across the battlefield.

Image

Yet the Durdedotte soldiers have expended all their reaction fire, and the remaining comboints make their sweeping advance.

They're just one turn away from getting to tear the militia troops to pieces.

Image

All along their battle line the comboints advance upon Fort Ridgeway's defenses. Some feast upon the dead as they move up.

Image

Their feeding causes an extra five creatures to be born. They instinctively head for the rest of the horde.

Image

One of the surviving two commando automatons jumps onto a crate and shoots into the fleeing workers.

The closest one is cut down.

Image

Meanwhile the other commando robot aims its rocket launcher at the Cancellor Minors!

(Not photographed because boring: The rocket does absolutely nothing...)

Image

Over by the docks, one ranger lets loose with a grenade launcher as the buccaneers get within range.

Image

All but the rower die in this boat from the rain of shrapnel.

Image

The last intact Partisan technical aims its cannon at the dock defenders.

Image

The shrekkening cometh for that skull cave thingy and the ranger hiding in it as the technical's shot blasts them apart.

Image

It's the start of the Federalists' turn and an utter bloodbath is underway in front of the east wall.

Rifles and machine guns join with the thunder of cannons to spew flying death at the comboints.

Image

Inside the fort, Mannerheim attempted to use a heroic feat to get the Veridians to help him shove one of the fallen nuclear missiles into the blown-open fire port, intending to block the comboints' path.

It backfires, however, as the soldiers find the thing too heavy. As they waste their efforts trying to lift it they're totally exposed!

Image

Inside her quarters the proselyte uses her healing potion on the two Pangou troopers who fell in from the walls.

Image

After a moment the two men sit up.

They're groggy and disrupted, unable to do anything this turn, but they're alive.

Image

Meanwhile the Durdedotte contingent is on the edge of being overrun.

The squad leader in the white cape screams to the rifleman in the back he gave a special assignment to. "Fritz," he yells, "FRITZ! Trigger it now!"

Image

A terrified Fritz is too unhinged to reply, but he does reach for the detonator.

Image

The comboints won't know what hit 'em.

Image

The resulting explosion kills a few of the oncoming creatures.

Image

More importantly, though, the explosion clears some of the foliage that was obscuring the Federalists' line of fire.

Image

Most of the Cancellor Minors move in and shoot down the robot with the rocket launcher.

Image

One CM breaks off from the group to attack the robot killing the workers. His grenade launcher blows up the crates it stood on and sends it flying but fails to destroy it.

Image

Agent Plex, on a roof overlooking the robot pursuing the workers, decides to personally intervene.

He raises up his sword for a precise and heroic toss.

Image

Whoops!

Image

Oh well; it's moments like these that Plex carries a revolver for.

Image

Plex's sidearm finally gets the job done.

Image

The Federal Marshal leaps into action, resting his AT rifle atop the overturned dumpster. He's aiming for the driver of one of the partisan technicals that had its cabin roof torn off.

Image

Gottam!

Image

From underneath the dumpster this police shotgunner crawls back into the battle!

Image

He moves towards the beachhead.

Image

In this blurry photo that should've been reshot, the Federalist defenders are moving in to fire upon the buccaneers.

Image

The hopes of the buccaneers seem to be dashed to nothingness under the weight of fire. More are now dead than alive!

Image

The buccaneers chances really are over now, for a Federalist naval task force just showed up. With a two-gunned cutter as flagship the little flotilla moves in to relieve the beach.

Image

The spotter/machine gunner in the crow's nest of the cutter looks upon the chaos of Brickingrad. Mentally he's bracing himself for the carnage ahead.

Image

Commanding the Federalist task force is Rear Admiral Bellendswood. He is equipped to fight in the style of an action hero but for now he mans the main gun of the cutter.

Image

Not about to be outdone by sailors, an amphibious armored transport full of marines also appears headed for Brickingrad's docks. On top it carries a pair of field guns to unload once it makes land fall.

Image

Is so an amphibious transport! Look, it has propellers!

Image

But that's not all of the marines coming to the aid of Brickingrad.

The elite Freakish Unnatural Killers - Unit, led by Colonel Guri Yagarin, are flying in to be dropped off by their dropship. Veterans of the war, they've been fighting since they intervened in the Battle of Septic Springs a year ago.

Image

They look loaded for bear...or Comboint...

Image

The marines' transport takes them right in front of Fort Ridgeway. They disembark to reinforce the garrison.

Image

Back at the beach, it looks like utter chaos but the buccaneers are finished as too many Federalists pour into the area.

Image

As the second Federalists' turn comes to a close, their flag stands majestically amidst the chaos. It remains to be seen whether it will be blown over by a crashing aircraft or stray explosive.

Image

End of turn Overwatch shot. In summary the BNP looks in trouble. The comboints haven't taken the fort down yet and their smaller attacks have all failed.

Don't worry, though; just as the Federalists have received reinforcements, so too will the BNP next turn...

Kwick kwestion, how/whut did you use to make your FSU flag?

I have a friend who's a digital artist. I passed him $20 to make the flag to my specifications. Then I experimented around with the family printer's settings until I got a high-quality print. Last step was to build that pole and tape the flag to it. Someday I might come up with a better pole design (like one that uses string) but for this it turned out better than I'd hoped.

They definitely do but I'm not sure what type.

Yeah, I had to search the forum for it, then it popped up.

Uh, it should be near the top of the Reports From the Field board because they're most recent (at time of writing anyway).

I'm honestly not sure why you guys'd be having issues seeing my threads. Maybe Stubby knows?

EDIT: My signature has a link to a page with all my battles and SOAPS, including all the turns as of now. If you can't find them for some reason, that should help.

Oh man, I was looking in the Forum Battles subforum like a dunce instead of Battle Reports. Guess I shouldn't be hitting the Four-Rums while half-asleep, although sometimes that's the best time to go.   :guinness:

Well I post most of this while half-asleep from having to work too, so...

Further proof that FourRum-ing while half-asleep is the best way to FourRum.  :studgod:
