Brikwater Operation #1: The Oilhead Situation

Postby 09123456a » Tue Aug 09, 2011 10:39 pm

Situation: A oil cartel called Oilhead is pressuring a small town to give him all their monies or he will destroy it to make room for a oil refinery and processing plant. (He secretly plans to destroy their town whether or not they give him the monies). He has issued an ultimatum: Bring the monies to the desert oil rig building, or he will blow the town to kingdom come (his, hopefully). The villagers have hired Brikwater Inc. to save their town from absolute destruction. Brikwater responded quickly, and using a trick used by the ST:TOS producers to compensate for their odd lack of orbital descent vehicles. (yet)(obscure reference FTW)

Image

Safely transported to the surface, the select team readies to assault the oil rig.
And here’s the point when I realize the rest of the pictures are hopelessly mixed up. Thus, this may get a little non-linear.

Image

Meanwhile, the town guard, along with the town council, brings the monies to the rig.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The rig is fairly well defended, by guards, aliens, Oilhead’s whores and a robot.

Image

Without further ado, the riflemen kick out the door and start supplying suppression fire.

Image

Allowing the snipers to start picking targets.

Image

And the dudes with jetpacks to get ready to do something surprising.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The snipers, trained pros as they are, take their targets.

Image

While the scouts take aim at a far more metallic target.

Image

With a loud <insert> the main drill tower comes falling down.

Image

The scouts promptly jet pack over to it.

Image

And ready grappling hooks.

Image

A second grappling hook is fired, allowing men to traverse to the second level au lieu of the third. The riflemen somehow manage to get to the top of the tower and start climbing down.

Image

The guards continue to fire back, but to no avail.

Image

An alien starts climbing up a chain to murder the guys on the tower.

Image

The scouts get to the bottom of the tower, but miss their shots
A scout is thrown back from return fire, but is unhurt. The other slides down the tower.

Image

They then jump over to assist the riflemen.

Image

The junkbot attempts to fire a rocket at the group of men, but fails and falls apart.

Image

Critical Fail.

Image

The alien jumps down to skewer the soldiers. Guess what happens? I mean, you’ve see this all the time in the movies, the soldiers are doomed. Unless...

Image

Image

Yeah, the alien was outta Move, and four guys had a Response Action saved up.

Image

Oilhead heads for the door.

Image

<laser>

Image

OOOOFF!

Image

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-

Image

-AAAUUUUUGGGGHHHH!

Image

Thwump!

Image

Crunch!

Image

Meanwhile, Oilhead jumps down the ladder.

Image

And heads for a trike to make his escape.

Image

Another guard goes down with a splitting headache.

Image

Troops start jumping over barriers to take out Oilhead, who is rapidly
getting away.

Image

Last alien is eliminated by a sniper.

Image

Image

And the last guard gets a Asplodes Knife in the face.

Image

The Scout jetpacks towards Oilhead, but falls short.

Image

Two riflemen climb up a post, which topples, exactly according to plan.


Image

Falling near Oilhead, letting one soldier grapple with him, while the other shoots out one his wheels. The guy grappling with him whacks him in the head with the butt of his gun, Stunning him.

Image

A short time later, they have acquired the monies from the grateful villagers. Who may or may not be now dead.

Image

Oilhead comes to with a migraine, and three problems staring him in the face.

BANG.

I wanted to get excited over it, but only one team took any casualties. No tension. No drama. I lost interest.

Should have had a pic of the whole battlefield, too.

Photos weren't bad, though.

@Rev. Sylvanus

Thanks for bringing the one-sided casualties to my attention.
Looking back at the field, I recall that Brikwater lost a sniper, a scout, and a rifleman. I'll see if I can adjust the OP accordingly.

I was just curious :)

Was this you vs someone else? Or did you take both sides?

Collapsing buildings always make battles fun. I also like the guns you made for the Oilhead guards.
