I had a battle yesterday with my friend Thad. He brought along his troops that he modeled after the classes from Team Fortress 2, with their associated powers. He also suggested that we try capture the flag rather than bloody massacre. And so it began . . .
Due to bright fluorescent lights, my shaky hand, and a cheap camera, some of these didn't turn out well. My flag is on top of the fire station. Most of my men are inside vehicles, but it was easier to put them off to the side.
Tank, APC, IFV, Speeder. Mountains in the background.
Terrain, neutral animals, and the infamous crane.
Thad has a lava moat in front of his base.
Thad's large tracked platform.
Thad's base, with his flag.
Thad draws first blood, or rather oil, by blasting a hole in the wall and killing two of my robots. But they were peach-headed, so not a real loss.
The offending oversized weapon. Thad's snowmobile decides the best way to my flag is via an alley behind the buildings.
I sent in my Y-Wing to blast the gun off of Thad's platform. It fired three rockets, which all missed spectacularly, destroying the crane and a construction truck in the corner. I sent in my E-Wing next, which shot it right off with damage to spare.
