Robot Monkey vs. Redshirt: The RT incident

So, redshirt came over today, and we had a battle.

Image
An asteroid filled with RT ore crashed onto an unpopulated planet...
Soon, the evil scientist Brikhed showed up to steal it for himself. The RIN, believing that all RT in this sector belonged to them, came for it too. A vicious battle ensued...


Image
A wild cult beast watches on, pleased...

Image
Beginning Overwatch.

Image
Brikhed's lineup.

Image
The RIN's lineup.

Image
obligatory pic of dice.

Image
The RIN landraider moved up, but critfailed on it's skill roll with the assault cannon.

Image
RIN turn one.

Image
Brikhed, in his new hovercraft, opens fire on the RIN dreadnought, but fails to pierce it's armor.

Image
A rogue DSM working for Brikhed opens fire on The Man In The Top Hat, but fails.

Image
This one needs some explanation:
Qui-gon Jinn's decapitated head in a floating jar, equipped with a tommy gun, decided it was a good idea to shove the barrel of the tommy gun into the Landraider's lascannon, which resulted in an explosion, killing Qui-gon.

Image
Spongebob, master of fear, causes the RIN juggernaut to collapse.

Image
Brikhed, turn 1.

Image
The RIN dread fires a missile at Brikhed's hovercraft, which fails, but thanks to a what I say goes roll, it get's lodged in the hovercraft's laser gun. Next time he fires it, it may explode, it may not.  :twisted:

Image
Some RIN infantry then disembark from the landraider.

Image
TMITTH fails a heroic feat, and trips.

Image
The juggernaut then gets up, and goes to defend him.

Image
The brikmech then kills the flammenwerfer truppen.

Image
Spongebob's cheesemobile then rams the juggernaut, defeating him.

Image
The deathcart then shoots at the disrupted TMITTH,

Image
And thanks to a shit armor roll,

Image
TMITTH is KO'd!

Image
However, Brikhed, after attempting to fire the laser gun, has it explode in his face due to the missile lodged in the barrel. His body, and the gun, explode.

Image
The RIN troops, seeing this as a bad tactical position, re-enter the landraider.

Image
The landraider then tears off, running over Thog the Ork,

Image
As well as destroying the cheesemobile, sending OT cheese everywhere.

Image
The engineer then tries to repair the juggernaut, but fails.

Image
*FREEM*
The landraider shoots down the brikmech with a lascannon.

Image
The deathcart then shoots the plasma cannon operator.

Image
The dread then tries to kill the disrupted Spongebob, but makes a crap damage roll.

Image
The sniper then kills the downed brikmech's pilot.

Image
Spongebob gets up, and attempts to instill fear in the Dreadnought. He fails miserably.

Image
A quick missile from the landraider then destroys the deathcart's turret.

Image
Brikhed's two remaining troops die from shock that they lost.

Image
Final Overwatch.

Image
Brikhed: *in a thick Austrian accent* "I'll be back...."

VICTORY FOR THE REPUBLIC OF INDEPENDENT NATIONS

BONUS:

Where's Mr. Astley? We have hidden Mr. Astley the creeper in one of the above photos. Find him and get an internet cookie!

After this, we tried to play portal 2, but rolled a one on our find remote roll, and ended up playing with some random stuff on the internet.

69. Thanks!
7. It's a mech. Not a van.
8. *hand you interwebz cookie*
9. Unfair? How? Redshirt was pretty much owning me for the first part of the battle, until my Landraider turned the tide...

that was my point. The landraider had no equal on the opposing force, so it kind of owned (huge cubes of armor with guns on them tend to do that)

*takes cookie and hides it in --------*

He had a goddamn hovercraft. I had no equal for that in my lineup. And besides, the Landraider was designed to own.  :wink:  8)

There were some awesome units in that battle, on both sides.  It sucks that the Guitar Trooper never got to do anything, 'cause he looked awesome.  

The Giant cult Beasts are a strangely common sight in the Brikverse, it seems.  Somebody should do a wiki page on them.

I bet it was Mr.Astley that blew up behind Redshirts mech. Dirty creepers...

Again, you lost dude! Although I think to that Brikhead was in disadvantage when comparing forces with the RIN...

ALSO, aren't those dudes supposed to be fighting a forum battle? HUM?

Can't the RIN infantry have some fun? Besides, school is eating my life.

Aside from that, this battle was the first 'real' brikwar I've ever fought that I thought I was gonna lose. Thank goodness for Landraiders!

Pic 29 where the sniper kills the downed biomech pilot. In retrospect, I should have scrolled the comments rather than actually looking. After all, when Piltogg (comment above mine for anyone who was confused by this)  says something and it doesn't end up killing you, it's a good thing.
