Fight for the crystals (my first 'real' Brikwar!)

I went to my sister's. We visited a Lego shop and bought the flyer from Pharaoh Quest and the Escape From The Dungeon from Kingdoms as well as some of the custom figs. I then got the idea to do a Brikwar with what we had. Pictures were taken with my mac.

Image

My sister controlled the medievals: 3 troopers, a dwarf (officer) and a mounted knight (hero) as well as a piece of artillery.

Image

My team was Cleopatra and her minions: a Redcoat (officer), 2 pharaohs (troopers) and Adventurous Mark Antony with his flyer (artillery).

Image

Both sides had a crystal which the other wanted to get their hands on.

Image

I opened the fight, with my redcoat blasting my sister's crossbow trooper.

Image

The rest advanced, Cleopatra casting a wind shield to increase her pharaoh's armour by 1. Adventurous Mark Antony opened fire, but missed.

Image

My sister advanced her artillery and fired on the obelisk to make the crystal fall down, but missed.

Image

Her hero charged the obelisk to crush it, but the heroic feat failed and the horses' horn broke. In the meantime one of her troopers had also shot down the redcoat.

Image

My pharaohs ganged on the hero, killing him.

Image

Cleopatra picked up the redcoat's rifle and blasted another trooper while Adventurous Mark Antony sped up towards the enemy artillery.

Image

My sister's artillery and dwarf combined fire on Cleopatra. Both missed. By this time we had established that I had insane luck.

Image

Cleopatra tried to feat throwing a snake at the dwarf, at the danger of getting bit by it and dying (it happened to her before).

Image

Guess what? I got a sixty-nine. The opposing roll was a five.

Image

Adventurous Mark Antony continued his charge towards the final trooper.

Image

Guess what happens next?

Image

My Pharaoh charged and knocked him back into the path of Adventurous Mark Antony's flyer, but failed to kill him. My sister showed great Brikwars spirit and agreed the trooper should just die.

Image

Victory for Cleopatra's minions! We both had good fun and agreed my luck was without bounds.

Airplane propellers always make for good kills, but there were no gratuitous blood splatters! :son:

Hehe, what you see is what we had, there was a lack of spare bricks for effects. Next time Pwn ;)

Welcome to the world of real brikwars, Brag!

Also, loved how the Egyptian army was tied together: "Adventurous Marc Antony" LOL!

But I have as of yet been unsuccessful in getting my brother to play brikwars with me...tips or tricks?

If he wins, you pay him a drink? If he loses, he has to play another game.

Bribary works well. Maybe do his chores for him.
