The Transformers-- Chapter one-- Fight for the Energon

Postby Robot Monkey » Tue May 24, 2011 9:01 pm

So RedShirt came over today, and we had a Brikwar with Transformers. I played as the Autobots, and he Played as the Decepticons.

First, some story:

Megatron was awaiting a shipment of energon cubes to come to his secret base, when he recieved a message telling him the Space Bridge went awry-- and dumped his energon cubes at the gate of an abandoned military facility! He mobilized the Decepticons, and just as they arrived, they saw the Autobots had come there to take the energon cubes! Let the battle begin!

Image
The beginning, with the Autobots on the close end of the field, and the decepticons on the other side of the field.

Image
Autobots, turn 1. No combat yet, just movement.

Image
As the Decepticons moved up, Blurr used his response action to snipe Megatron, but failed to pierce his armor.

Image
Decepticons, turn 1-The rest of the Decepticons move up, all out of range of the Autobots response fire.

Image
Optimus Prime then shoots Scourge out of the air like a clay pigeon. On his way down, Scourge destroyed a Tank Trap and barely missed a land mine. Also, Hubcap takes an Energon cube!

Image
Hot Rod then shoots down Dirge.

Image
Autobots, turn 2.

Image
Megatron does not approve of Hot Rod taking down Dirge, he shows his disapproval by blasting Hot Rod in the face!

Image
Soundwave then revives the downed Scourge using his Medic ability.

Image
Scourge then takes an energon cube and runs.

Image
Cyclonus takes an energon cube as well.

Image
Decepticons, turn 2.

Image
Overkill. There ain't no kill like it. Blurr shoots Brimstone, causing him to fall into a land mine.

Image
Optimus, pissed because scourge got back up, finishes the job.

Image
Bumblebee then lays into Cyclonus with both of his wristblades! Cyclonus naturally goes down.

Image
Bumblebee then take the energon cube Cyclonus was carrying.

Image
Autobots, turn 3.

Image
Megatron then demonstrates the destructive power of the fusion cannon by shooting Optimus, and using the overkill damage to down Perceptor as well.

Image
Decepticons, turn 3. Not much happened this turn, mainly movement and Megatron owning Optimus and Perceptor.

Image
Hubcap attempts to revive Perceptor with an energon cube...

Image
But fails, and then walks away as if nothing happened.

Image
I was going to see if a Decepticon was within range of one of my Autobot's weapons, so I asked RedShirt to pass me the ruler, and then he tossed it at me, but failed, hitting me in the eye! He was punished with an unmighty penny.

Image
Blurr, continuing on his streak of awesome, snipes Megatron and succeeds! Oh well, Megatron's never truly dead...

Image
Optimus then pulls an Ultra Magnus and gets revived five minutes after death!

Image
He then strikes a pose for the camera.

Image
He then goes and revives Perceptor with an energon cube.

Image
Perceptor then gets up.

Image
Anyway, here's where we lost track of turns. Soundwave proves himself to be an inferior medic, by failing to revive Cyclonus a second time! The rest of the Decepticon turn was movement.

Image
Autobots: turn 4 (I think...) Lots of movement.

Image
Kup then uses his shotgun to shoot Soundwave. Look at that corpse pile!

Image
Hubcap then reaches the Autobot side of the map...

Image
And deposits the energon cube.

Image
Optimus then picks up an energon cube.

Image
as does Bumblebee.

Image
Tracks then tries to shoot Skullgrin, but fails.

Image
:shock: What is this? A cult beast!

Image
What type of experiments were they doing at this military facility before they abandoned it? That cult is HUGE!

Image
Anyway, Optimus then drops an energon cube at the Autobots's end of the field.

Image
Kup tries to shotgun Skullgrin, but fails to pierce his armor.

Image
Tracks then shoots a missile at Skullgrin, but fails as well.

Image
Autobots, turn ???

Image
"may I axe you a question?" Unfortunately, Skullgrin fails.

Image
Bumblebee then deposits the cube he took.

Image
Kup then fails at shooting Skullgrin again.

Image
Skullgrin finally falls when Tracks shoots his last missile at Skullgrin.

Image
'Til All Are One! Autobot victory!

Image

Image
Final overviews.

So, any questions or comments?

Good idea well executed.
What I would like to see in the future is a bit more dynamic posing, they're not minifigs, they can sport some walking/fancy shooting/etc positions.

Yea, RedShirt and I wanted to go quick with this battle, since he wanted to play Portal 2. Next time there will definitely be some more posing.

Interesting battle. I never quite managed to understand what Transformers were about, but playing a wargame with them seems to work Ok.

Actually, that battle I was not just going fast to play portal 2, you just made that up. We played that as long as it took until one of us won. And you just won because Autobots always win!

And @White Nun: Steampunk Transformers?

Boy, Redshirt lost another battle... You gotta do something about dude, Robo keeps kicking your ass! :wink:

So, even not being a Transformers fan, I must admit that looked fun. Hurray for Brikwars and its universal gaming system!
