The Battle for Rectangularland

Postby 09123456a » Tue Jun 21, 2011 1:11 pm

Hi. This is my first actual complete Brikwars battle, due to delays, laziness, lack of fire/blood/dice, ridiculously long travel times and people having to go to important events before game completion. Thus, this time I played with someone who was able to stay for the whole game; me. Anyways, it’s fairly simple in terms of teams, objective and terrain. Albeit, it’s a little small, but baseplates are hard to come by here. There are/were two teams they both have equal numbers, but not CP.(WARNING *picture heavy*) And sorry about the pictures. Some were taken without proper lighting.

Image

Team 1’s objective is to defend the treasure from Team 2. Team 1 is defeated if:
Team 2 obtains the treasure
Everyone is dead except one or more people on Team 2.(unless, of course that those one or more people on Team 2 can’t move, in which case they cannot get the treasure.)
The treasure is destroyed.(Which means mutual defeat.)


Team 2’s objectives are as following:
Get the treasure, at which point Team 2 can use whatever mysterious things are in the treasure chest at the back.
Kill Team 1
Carry the two treasure chests back onto their side of the field.

Team 2 is defeated if the following occur:
They all die.Horribly.

Image

Image

Teams 1 and 2, respectively.


Start Team 2 Turn

Image

Soon after deployment, it was realized that Team 2’s major spellcasting force was hopelessly trapped on top of a tower, with no hope of descent (minus falling, which would have killed them).

Image

The Team 2 hero, riding his Stavoöse, (part reanimated statue, part man, and part moose) leads the advance along with a column of greenskins.

Image

The undead part of the army advances as well, with the oh-so-dreaded UNDEAD LAWYER bringing up the rear.

Image

Meanwhile, the Wicked Witch of the North-West brings her group of Vermin up the far front.

Image

The Ork Banner Troll advances towards Team 1. It’s mighty morale-boosting banner was supposed to give +1 to all allied rolls within 5’’, but that was promptly forgotten after setup.

Image

Team 1’s equivalent +1 banner booster guy. Again, completely forgotten about after setup.

Image

Finally, first contact. The archers open fire on the charging skeletal riders as a response action (despite they have not actually had a turn yet), yet one is somehow able to hopelessly fail in firing his bow, and the other’s arrow plinks uselessly off one of the undead beasts. The nearby spearmen brace for impact from the charging horsemen.

Image

A troll gets within smiting range of a non-heroic king.

Image

The king tries to block, without success. He is smitten.

Image

Jayko the Swift is beset upon by the Banner Ork. He parries and attempts a Heroic riposte.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Success! The Banner Ork falls. This is also the reason why the +1 banner was forgotten.

Image

Intent on their target and mad with bloodlust, the greenskin party enters into a sprint, along with the wizard, still on his Stavoöse.

Image

The Orks split up to attack Jayko and the two other knights at the same time.

Image

The crossbow ork takes aim and misses quite badly. In fact, it’s crossbow bolt hits the back of the Stavoöse, (several inches to the left) but fails to do any damage whatsoever, with the Stavoöse being made of stone and all that.


End Team 2 Turn

Overview

Image

Start Team 1 Turn

Image

Rather annoyed with the fact that their king just got mashed by a mere cave troll, the armored axemen hack down that mere cave troll in vengeance.

Image

Nearby, the two knights engage the orks in close combat. They are not that successful in accomplishing anything.

Image

Meanwhile, a nearby pike decides to investigate just what makes up an ork head.

Image

Its comrade sees its efforts for science, and discovers what a ork digestive tract looks like from the inside.

Image

One archer manages somehow to defy the laws of physics and probability to disarm and kill a big ork using only one arrow.

Image

The other archer snipes a horseman off his horse, so that he goes from being a horseman to being a dead man.

End Team 1 Turn

Overview

Image

Start Team 2 Turn

Image

This Ork’s turn involved him flying through the air, to land not-so-softly on the not-so-soft ground. In two pieces.

Image

Concentrated undead crossbow fire overcomes the horseman’s armor and knocks him off his horse. He loses his head. Literally.

Image

The Wizard commences a fire spell.

Image

And incinerates a axeman.

Image

The Ork Chieftain releases a innocent red snake from a knight by chopping him in half.

Image

The remaining knight parries a orkish attack.

Image

And decapitates the instigator of the attack.

Image

Continuing the blow, his blade enters into the shoulder of the next ork.

Image

Elsewhere, spearman #11 deflects the charging horseman.

Image

Off the seemingly misplaced cliff.

Image

General shot of the chaos.

Image

Jayko declares a Heroic Feat to decapitate the three ork solders closest to him.

Image

He is blessed by the dice.(Green die being his roll)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

He alights on a flower, which is somehow able to support his weight.

Image

The horseman, who had apparently survived being shot, gets up, and is promptly shot again by the same archer.

Image

Some halberd-wielding townsfolk manage to hack down the Stavoöse, with the Wizard Bailing in the other direction.

Image

The resulting explosion flings everything in a 10” radius up into the air.

Image

And what goes up, must come down.

Image

One Manta Man, due to a incredibly lucky Physical Resistance Roll, stands unharmed.

Image

Unfortunately for him, he fails his “not getting hit by a falling Stavoöse corpse” roll.

Image

And gets hit by a falling Stavoöse. No idea why.

Image

The witch and her Vermin finally get to the spearmen and attack the nearest one.

Image

The four supposedly useless wizards call upon the power of a d20, and prepare to unleash it upon the battlefield below.

Image

Their target? A completely unsuspecting dwarven defensive phalanx.

Image

Direct hit, but no damage yet.

Image

And there’s the damage. All of the dwarves were blown away in pieces, except for one lone dwarf healer.

Image

As well, the Heroic King got knocked off his horse.

Image

The Vermin fell one spearman, and head towards the next.

Image

The spearmen simply run over the Vermin and stab the Witch to death, causing all the magically summoned Vermin to become useless statues once more.

Image

Jayko throws himself on the other Manta Man, (the one that was not crushed by the Stavoöse),

Image

and fails to do anything noteworthy.

Image

The Wizard gets up and starts to gather all his undead minions to him.

Image

And sacrifices everything on his team.

Image

He summons an undead legion, to aid him in his quest of total annihilation.

Image

It doesn't look like Team 1 will be able to offer up much resistance.

Image

The King issues a Call To Arms, which bring all allied units into one big squad.

Image

The intimidating Undead Legion.

Image

The Defenders of The Royal Treasure.

Image

The Wizard’s Resurrection Spell continues its work, running through the corpses and grabbing the closest limbs and weapons possible and jamming them unto any body.

Image

As it continues its work, the somewhat now sentient spell realized it does not have enough energy to support all these undead. It attaches their energy needs to a counterpart on the opposing side. This pretty much insures that the numbers are equal.

Image

Consequently, several undead keel over in the rear.

Image

The two armies engage. From here on it’s just vicious close combat using rapidly made up rules. The first to fall is the Wizard under many blows, but his body disappears instantaneously.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Chaos ensues.

Image

Meanwhile, far behind the battle, the Resurrection Spell gathers spare mass.

Image

It slowly compresses this matter, to make a new body for its master.

Image

The now somewhat worried Team 1 army wonders why the zombies they chop down are flowing away, instead of lying on the ground like normal corpses.

Image

The spell readies the final compression.

Image

The Wizard’s new body appears, wreathed in flame. His consciousness rapidly ensnares it once more.

Image

He quickly covers the distance between his rebirth point and the battle.

Image

The undead start breaking through the line of valiant defenders, en route to the treasure. The defenders do a mass Shove and send every single undead over the edge of the cliff. They then reform into a defensive formation.

Image

The Wizard stands to face Team 1. Even he cannot defeat them all.

Image

So he Bails on a d20 and gets a 14. He flies right over the entire army.

Image

And alights at the door of the the keep.
And commences hacking through the door.

Image

He then jumps through the door after activating a noclip “spell” and decapitates one of the treasure guards. He then commences dueling the other one.

Image

Meanwhile, the rest of Team 1 attempts to break down their front door.

Image

The Wizard, realizing that his time is running out, blasts the guard across the room.

Image

He rushes across the keep to a mysterious box, behind the treasure, whilst stepping on said treasure.

Image

He opens it to find a assortment of items that no medieval man should recognize, but he does, however.

Image

He grabs two boomsticks, and a explosive and heads for the door.

Image

Image

He readies the dynamite, and throws it toward the door.

Image

Only three soldiers remain standing. As does the door, for no apparent reason.

Image

Scratch that, the door falls down.

Image

The wizard marches out of the wreckage, guns blazing.

Image

The opposing resistance do the most sensible thing. They bail out.

Image

The radio in the mystery box commences sending a signal.

Image

Directly to the abandoned building across the battlefield.

Image

A MkII Devastator drone emerges, a last remnant of the the wars that devastated this planet.

Image

It readies its on-board antimatter missile launcher, and targets the only living thing within range, which is the unaware wizard, who at this point is feeling quite invincible.

Image

The Devastator Drone fires on a nice long ballistic arc of destruction.

Image

Then, in the rising sun, the wizard wonders who is throwing pieces of metal at him.



BOOM.

Lots of pictures, good story-telling, crazy magic, bloody fights; you've got this game figured out.

An Excellent report, great pictures and action.
In order to properly welcome you to the forums allow me to showcase this battle for a bit.
Edit: That was a good two weeks for this topic.
