Bots and Blasts

Postby baconquistador » Fri Nov 02, 2018 7:14 pm

Intro:
Image
It was a brisk, sunny Spooktober day like any other in the small Peach town of Nowhere.

Image
The townsfolk went about their daily business in tranquility.

Image
Kabobs were being sold. Everything was right in the world...
"Hold on a moment."

Image
It's the Lord Of Halloween!
"Did you say tranquility and Spooktober in the same sentence there? Peaches, no less!"

Image
"Let's do something about that, shall we?

Image
*POOF*

Image
*POOF*

Image
*POOF*
A Dr0id army just exploded into existence! Complete with a Windup-class juggernaut, the mobile fortress begins to unload its troops under the command of The Elite, an assassin of whom little is known on account of the few survivors of its attacks.

Image
Additionally, the back of the mobile fortress opens, and out comes General Cheesus and his cheesy mercenaries! [I swear I don't use this guy in every battle I do, just the two recorded thus far :mrgreen: ]

Image
The Elite: *BEEP* "Target acquired."

Image
:byzero:
Image

Image
General Cheesus: "Slaughter them all! Spare not a-"
"Not so fast, tin can. HERE COMES THE BOOM!"

Image
With impeccable timing, the Boomin' Battalion comes rolling into the town led by Tommy Thunder!
Tommy Thunder: "Let's get to it, boys! Arm the cockroaches!"
Soldier: "Peaches, sir."
Tommy Thunder: "That's what I meant!"

Image
The citizens of the town grab weapons from the back of the half-track, ready to finally do something exciting.

Image
What's this? A mysterious stranger appears in the distance...

Image
It's Marius Silverson! The legendary Peach archer has come to protect the village under his charge from the Dr0ids' machinations.

Image

Stay tuned for the battle! (This would've been posted on Halloween but technical difficulties arose. :x The battle itself was completeted last Sunday, I'll try to post the rest of the pics as quickly as possible.)

Battalion:
Image
Kabob man wolfs down a snack to get the party started.

Image
Marius uses a grapple hook arrow to zip to the top of the tower. [FEAT SUCCESSFUL]

Image
He then takes a shot at the Windup, but fails to penetrate its armor.

Image
The soldiers all move up into defensive positions, and the short Peach loads the cannon.
Image
These guys climb through a hole in the fence.

Dr0ids:
Image
The jetpack mercenaries short work of the junkyard chains.

Image
General Cheesus destroys a TV. Yeah... not sure why.

Image
Shots are taken at Marius, but the most they get done is the Windup blowing the roof off of the tiny house.

Image
These droids spread out and set up response fire.

Battalion:
Image
Kabob Guy: "Hey, are you gonna drink that?"
Soldier: "Uhh, no, knock yourself out."
Then more sprint rolls.

Image
Short peach fires the cannon...

Image
And DECIMATES some bots! FIRST BLOOD

Image
This Peach officer searches a house and finds grenades! Oh yeah, and a fortune in gold, but more importantly, grenades!

Image
This soldier just finds a bass guitar. He jams out some smooth riffs for a turn.

Image
This gunner and sniper take up positions. Only the sniper has the range to make an attack, but he misses.

Image
Meanwhile, these bloodthirsty Peaches unlock the gates and prepare to charge. (That guard is way too dead for the medic to revive.)

Dr0ids:
Image
More shots taken, more shots missed. These super battal dr0ids aren't feeling so super.

Image
The sniper snipes the sniping sniper. :trollception:
[These are the only photos I took of this round, it was just a lot of re-positioning on the Dr0ids' part. I should take a moment to explain how my 11-yr-old brother was playing them, and while he isn't the best at the game yet, I hope you'll join me in giving him some grace as he learns to be the future to a glorious tradition of gratuitous violence.]

Battalion:
Image
A revive is attempted by the medic. However, as if millions of butts cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced, the hands of fate butt-capitated the poor sniper.

Image
Marius does a running leap into the hole in the top of the tiny house, holding a response feat. What could he be planning?  :mystery:

Image
These soldiers, joined by a Peach cop, run up to the tower and open the door for cover.

Image
The Peaches at the gate rush forward and try to gun down two mercenaries, but only one of them dies on account of General Cheesus diving forward and knocking down his sniper. Inverse red-shirt???  :?:  [General Cheesus: 2/3 HP]

Image
Tommy Thunder: "Eat lead, assholes!"
He begins to spray and pray, until his next turn he will fire a constant stream of bullets in a 1" arc, anyone who moves or starts their turn there will take fire. [FEAT SUCCESSFUL]

Image
This officer really leans into the Spooktober spirit by giving a soldier and a Peach his grenades, a trick and a treat! The peach dashes forward, chucks it...

Image
And nails the throw!

Image
The General is blasted back, and the sniper he saved is reduced to a smear of gore. [General Cheesus: 1/3 HP]

Dr0ids:
Image
General Cheesus: "Enough!!"
He takes up the rifle dropped by the sniper and takes three shots at once! [FEAT SUCCESSFUL] Two Peaches get blasted, one jetpack boi drops his gun.

Image
This guy shoots real high into the air.

Image
When a cocky super battal dr0id tries to peek in the tiny house, Marius uses his response to explode out of the roof and shoot a hail of arrows at anyone nearby! [FEAT SUCCESSFUL] [Windup: 1/2 SP] [The Elite: 2/3 HP]

Image
Pretty much everybody retaliates with much combined fire, knocking the archer down. [Marius Silverson: 1/3 HP (idk the first time he got hit  :oops: )

Battalion:
Image
Very cannon, much explosion.

Image
Tommy Thunder gives his best shot at an inspiring battle cry, but he can't think of an appropriate action movie line to shout. This upsets him, and he gets -1 to skill rolls and his move speed until his next turn. [FEAT KRITIKAL FAIL]

Image
This guy dives through the window.

Image
His buddies take a more tactical approach.

Image
Remember that soldier that spent some time jamming out? Well, to make up for lost time he finds extra move speed in the form of a buckin' bronco! YEEHAW BOIS

Image
Two MGs jam, one sniper whiffs a shot, zero casualties. Waste of time.

Image
Getting shakily to his feet, Marius shoots an explosive arrow at the Windup,which critfails its armor rolls but not as badly as the archer's damage.

Dr0ids:
Image
The General makes a long shot, three points! Another peach bites the dust.

Image
He then climbs swiftly up the junkyard wall with his clawed feet.
General Cheesus: "You there!"
Image
"Here, trade."

Image
More concentrated fire, and some gross overkill later, a legend fades from the history books.
[Marius Silverson: ELIMINATED]

Battalion:
Image
All that Kabob meat and "water" and sprinting around has created something... Something deadly, from the depths of the Kabob Peach's bowels... however disgusting the impromptu blast attack was, the Dr0ids are unaffected.

Image
The professionals step up and show 'em how it's done!
[The Elite: ELIMINATED]

Image
This gunner was tired of all the shit.  :wink: MUSTACHE INTENSIFIES

Image
He blows the head off the Windup!

Image
The medic tries again for a revive...

Image
And succeeds! Yeah, the cop lost a leg, but who cares? Take that, med school!

Image
Cow rider urges his steed forward and unloads on a jetpack troop.

Image
Bullseye! (I'd say sorry for all the puns, but I'm really not)

Image
Tommy Thunder takes out the other one, leaving Cheesus all by his lonesome. (The gunner just moved forward and jammed his gun again, so I didn't bother taking a pic of him.)

Image
With really nothing left to lose, General Cheesus dashes up to the gunner and shows him what a jam really is.

Image
Yeah, so the grenade the cow rider was carrying? Didn't go too far.

Image
Two soldiers, a short Peach, two Dr0ids, and a cow died.  :studgod:

Image
Kabob Peach uses his shotgun to mop up the last Dr0id. All eyes turn to the final combat...

Image
Tommy Thunder: "Peaches are one thing, but you wanna dice up my boys? That's it..." *slap*

Image
"You've--" *kick*

Image
"Been--" *slam*

Image
"THUNDERSTRUCK!!!" BLAM
[General Cheesus: ELIMINATED]

The Boomin' Battalion Wins!

Image
After the bloodbath, the remaining soldiers gather around their intrepid leader.
Tommy Thunder: "Well men, we lost some good soldiers today. But you know what, we had a damn good time and shredded some metal freaks doin' it! Overall, I think we can put this one down as a success."

Image
Final Overwatch

Hope you enjoyed, apologies for all the delays. *cough* school sucks *cough* Let me know what y'all think!
(Also, seeing as the judging hasn't started yet, would it be too much to ask to put this battle back in the hellhunt? If not, I completely understand.)
