Kicking off my BrikWars career with 5-way crazy battle.

So I fought my first BrikWars battle at a friends house last week. There ended up being a lot of players, and plenty of carnage. Rather than try to upload all the pictures and then posting them here, I'm posting a link to my album on Facebook. Then I don't gave to worry about them being too big or whatever. I set it to viewable by everyone, so it should work. Let me know if it doesn't. I'm still a photo noob, and am expecting much criticism for my photography.

No, I can't see it and I have facebook. You have to add him/her, so I suspect  :trap: . A grooming trap.

Well, I set it to viewable by everyone, but I guess Facebook sucks. I am currently out-of-town, so I won't be able to fix this until I get home. Sorry, guys.

There was a 5-way battle, with 2 teams of 2 and one solo team. The terrain featured mountainous and urban areas. Each team got 15 troopers, and whatever vehicles were brought. The solo team had a lot of vehicles, and gave some of his men special abilities based on the characters from Team Fortress 2, so we decided it was roughly even. There were heroic feats involving hijacking vehicles, crushing the Batmobile with a rock, destroying an AT-ST with a Rock-Raiders-drill-lance, getting rid off said lance, and killing someone with a winch. The solo army ended the battle with only 4 men, and mine with 69, so we considered ourselves to be the winners. The battle ended due to time limits, but the street was so clogged with dead bodies and destroyed vehicles that it would have been hard to fight much longer.

Alright, here's the photos. Keep your fingers crossed.

Image
Bryce's Star Wars troopers set up in the Northern Mountains, my spacemen in the fire station, Thad's forces in the buildings to the south, Derek's men in the southwestern skate park, and Wes's army in the temple to the northwest.

Image
Bryce briefly considered putting his railroad workers in the pizzeria, but later moved them. Civilian vehicles, spare weapons, trash cans, trees, and other accessories were scattered about.

Image
Bryce's kingdom, and wandering capturable horses. Bryce and Derek were on a team, and Wes and I were teamed up. Thad was on his own, but had many vehicles, and some of his troopers had special abilities based on the characters from Team Fortress 2. To speed things up, you could only use 5 minifigs a turn, and each player had 15 'figs.

Image
Wes's vehicle slices up a neutral robo-gator with the mounted buzzsaws.

Image
I chose the fire station so I could commandeer the fire trucks, since the only vehicles I brought were horses and my hero's rocket bike.

Image
Most of the pictures involve my forces, since I took most of the photos.

Image

Image
I mounted up and drove into town, only to be ambushed by Thad's forces as they came out of his off-map area. The lead fire truck is t-boned by the Batmobile, but survives.

Image
Some of Derek's forces, including Jamie Hyneman of MythBusters riding on a Mega-Bloks Aslan.

Image
Thad's sniper took out 2 of my troopers, and then his mech jumped in and decapitated a third with it's blade.

Image
Thad's proud mech.

Image
My hero (on the rocket bike) decided to use a heroic feat to fly into the cab and kick out the driver. He was successful.

Image
Wes's exceptionally well-armed hero takes out Derek's AT-ST with a heroic feat so quickly that all I was able to catch was a blur. Or maybe we just don't have steady hands. Due to high die rolls, the power cell overloads and it was vaporized.

Image
Bryce car-bombs Wes's massive Rock Raider tank, taking out the cab. Although immobilized, the mining lasers are still armed and fully operational.

Image
Using the manual fire function, Thad's Batmobile simply shoots the fire truck. Also, two of my space troopers dismount. My Hero was also sniped out of the mech's cockpit. The mech's driver had somehow survived the fall from the cockpit and getting run over by the second fire truck.

Image
Wes's buzzsaw vehicle moves south to engage Bryce. Bryce's soldiers manage to gun down some of Wes's.

Image
Thad backs up the Batmobile, and deploys the Medic.

Image
Thad's off-map area with undeployed units and his custom stat cards. Note the fire ring.

Image
Derek's Spider-Man jumps into the crane, picks up a terrain feature, and prepares to attack the Batmobile with it!

Image
CRUNCH! Batman is squished and his vehicle is disabled.

Image
Derek's racecar knocks over the medic, but doesn't kill him. The Pyro's counterattack turns the popcorn stand into burning oil, but the racecar survives.

Image
Derek's units are assaulted by Wes's bazooka-girl and witch to great success.

Image
Robin's next!

Image
Meanwhile, Thad deploys his Soldier and Derek sends in Jamie.

Image
Things become cluttered as more of my troopers fall, and Thad's Engineer deploys a sentry gun and a stealthed Spy. Another one of my units jumped in the mech and killed the Sniper.

Image
With Robin dispatched, Wes's hero continues his advance . . .

Image
. . . and attacks The Penguin, but fails.

Image
In hopes of crushing the Spy, the mech and fire truck move foward, but miss. The sentry gun is destroyed, however.

Image
As if things weren't crowded enough, Thad's snowmobile zooms in, and Derek's elephant.

Image
Followed by an armored truck.

Image
The Batmobile's gas tank had been ignited by the Heavy, blowing it up and freeing up some vital space.

Image
As a heroic feat, Spider-Man webs away Wes's infamous Rock-Raider-drill lance.

Image
Unfazed, he uses his heroic feat to choke The Penguin with the winch on the back of his trike.

Image
My soldiers unsuccessfully assaulted the armored truck. The Medic bit it at some point. And the Pyro, but I forget how.

Image
I shot at Jamie, too, but missed. Jamie killed the snowmobile's pilot.

Image
The Spy threw his knife at one of my best (coolest-looking) men, and then got on the snowmobile.

Image
Then the Soldier blew the leg off the mech with his rocket launcher.

Image
Picking up a discarded weapon, Wes's hero knocked down the crane. Spider-Man avoids death by Red-Shirting, his own shirt color aside.

Image
Oh, the plasticity! We had to stop here, but sufficient damage was done. Thad ended the battle with 4 men alive (and one of his best vehicles still off the map), myself with 69, and Bryce with 12. Derek and Wes fell in-between. Thad and I both dished out and received the most damage, so we considered ourselves the victors.

Image
My hero and his vehicle.

Well, what do you guys think?

Very well done, lots of death with good pictures, the drill lance was a cool weapon.
