[RK17]On The Storms Tail

Postby TastySkippy123 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 8:15 pm

Warning!: This battle uses slightly different rules to Brikwars, so there may be some implements that may confuse some of you.


Bandit Outpost, Northen Argonian Border.

Image

A pair of rangers and a Domran War Cheif tell tales around a campfire.

Image

On the other side of the camp, more bandits are standing guard.

Image

Bandit:"Who goes there!?"

Image

An army of Argonians merge out from the forest.

Image

The War chief meets with the Argonian Captain.

Image

War Chief:"Ah, Lord Starkrowe! What a pleasure to meet you in person, what brings you to my outpost?"

Lord Starkrowe:"We are on the tail of a fleeing dark elf army, who we recently defeated in battle."

Image

Bandit:"Chief, I see dwarves heading this way!"

Image

A group of Dwarves arrive ready for battle

Image

KABOOM!

Image

War Chief:"What the dice!? Men, to arms!"

Lord Starkrowe:"The dwarves are servants to the elves, the elves must be close!"

Image

Elven swordsman rush out from behind the hill, blades at the ready.

Image

Starkrowe rallies his men

Image

The bandit and Argonian forces ready themselves. Let the carnage begin!

Image

Turn order will be decided by a d6 every turn.

Turn 1 order is:

Bandit

Dark Elves

Dwarves

Argonians

TURN 1

Bandit

The ranger and two bandits fire at the charging elves.

Image

The crossbows miss, but the Ranger's musket is deadly accurate, pulverizing the head of the Dark Elf officer.

Image

The war chief throws his axe...

Image

The axe slices through the head of one elf than severs the leg off of another. The one legged elf will only move half from now on. (decapitation not captured in the image sorry  :( )

[FEAT CRITICCALY SUCCESFUL]

Image

The pirates move to some cover and fire on the elves, but to no avail.

Image

Dark Elves

The swordsman leap into the bandit lines, with one decapitation. The other two swordsman are locked in combat. Hoppy couldn't reach the bandits.

Image

The rest of the army advances, the elven rangers release a volley on the pirates.

Image

One of the pirates takes an arrow to the gut.

Image

The Elvish mage rushes forward with a potion...

Image

...throwing it at the pirates, disrupting one of them. That pirates skills will be -1 for the rest of the game.

Image

Dark Elf General:"Archers, fire another volley! Lets turn their butts into pin cushions!"

Image

The elves just stare at their general, wondering if he is alright. They have never heard him use the word "Butt" in combat before.

[FEAT FAILED]

Image

Two redcoats rush up the hill, firing their muskets. They accomplish nothing.

Image

Dwarves

The dwarves sprint over to help the elves. They have no actions left. The dwarf hero attempt to make his men move forward, but he fails. [FEAT FAILED]

Image

Argonians.

Lord Starkrowe leaps towards his foes.

Image

Impaling a Dark Elf with his blade.

Image

The entire Argonian infantry charge forward, followed by the Battle Cleric.

Image

The cleric slams his battle axe into the ground, BT sparks flying from his axe.

Image

Summoning a Benifate Warrior!

Image

Before the Dark Elf mage can react, the Benifate slices his hand off.

Image

The Argonian archers move up, raining arrows down on the Dwarves.

Image

The arrows find a weakness in the dwarves shield wall, killing one of the dwarves.

Image

The High elven musketeers sprint towards the battle.

Image

TURN 2

Bandit

The war chief grabs the elvish assassin by the foot...

Image

Body slamming him into the ground, killing him.

[FEAT SUCCESFUL]

Image

The bandits group together and charge the dark elves, letting out a battle cry.

Image

The Dark Elf footmen flee, much to the Generals amazement.

General:"What the dice are you doing, get back here! Dark Elves never flee from battle!"

Swordsman:"We...it was a tactical retreat sir!"

Image

The last pirate runs at the archers, driven insane by seeing his son killed in front of him. He swings his staff, wounding one elf, and slitting the throat of another.

Image

The other pirate fires his flintlock pistol, but it just explodes in his hands.

Image

Dark Elves

The Cavalry charge, ripping a bandit in half and killing a knight.

Image

The cannon is reloaded, and fires again.

Image

The cannon ball rips through the knights, killing three. The Battle Cleric is extremely lucky.

Image

They may be archers, but the elven rangers are also deadly with a blade, utilising their bows as melee weapons.

Image

Well, at least most Dark elf rangers are. This one is an exception, he just trips over the old mans foot.

Image

The second gets the better of the old man, finishing him.

Image

The third ranger slices the back of the benifate, BT liquid going everywhere.

Image

The rangers then make a tactical retreat.

Image

The mage sees his chance and tries to stab the benifate in the back, but his jab is parried.

Image

The general pulls his men together and leads a charge against the remaining bandits.

Image

The two Rangers run in fear.

[FEAT SUCCESFUL]

Image

Dwarves

The dwarves easily dispatch the cowardly rangers, making easy prey. The dwarf hero swings his axes at the war cheif, attempting to give him a hemicorporectomy, but instead just slices of the chiefs right arm and disrupting him.

[FEAT SOME-WHAT SUCCESFUL]

Image

Argonians

The Argonians gather all their footmen and charge the dark elves horses.(Charging is a big thing in the version of BrikWars I play.)

Image

The horses are spooked witless, the riders having no control whatsoever.

Image

The High Elves line up and fire their flintlocks at the Elven Rangers.

Image

However, the High Elven army seems to have been equipped with very dodgy flintlock pistols, all of them but the officer crit fail!

Image

The benifate channels his power...

Image

Vaporizing the mage!
Image

Starkrowe leaps at the dwarf hero, attempting to knock him into to the other dwarves, but loses balance on the jump.

[FEAT FAILED]

Image

The archers fire another volley on the dwarves, one dwarf taking an arrow to the knee.

Dwarves aren't Whiterun guard's though, and he has many adventuring days left in him.

Image

The battle cleric leaps into the air...

Image

Bringing his mighty axe down on the dark elves, making a shockwave that disrupts two of the rangers.

Image

TURN 3

Darl Elves

The general fires his flintlock point blank in the face of a knight...

Image

The bullet ripping through his brain and finding a nice resting place in the shoulder of another knight.

[FEAT SUCCESFUL]

Image

He then brutally dispatches the wounding knight...

Image

...then using his free melee action, smack a captain in the face with the handle of his flintlock, disrupting him!

What a kickass general!

Image

The same can't be said for his army though. All critical failures, quite literally.

These two drop their arrows.

Image

Hoppy and his counterpart arm themselves but fail to do any harm.

Image

These two morons just fire into the air, again.

Image

The cannon makes a big boom, but misses by a mile.

Image

The cavalry on the other hand, are not complete failures. They make quick work of the High elves, wounding two and killing one.

Image

Bandits

The last pirate rushes the two rangers.

Image

Punching one in the gut...

Image

And kicking the other one of the hill.
Both out cold!

Image

The war chief gets up, still a little dazed.

Image

He picks up the dwarf hero, much to the dwarves frustration.

Image

The war chief tries to throw him at the Dark Elf General, crushing him, but the dwarf just lands at the generals feet uncomfortably.

Image

Dwarves

The little man picks himself back up and attacks the nearest target: The pirate.

Image

He just misses and falls off the hill.

Image

The dwarves regroup and attack the War Cheif, but he blocks all the hits with his one arm.

Image

They then use their bonus action to run away!

Image

Argonians

A captain jabs his spear into the generals neck...

Image

and like a bottle opener prizing off a lid from a beer bottle removes the generals head!

Image

Two Argonians kill Hoppy and the other Dark elf swordsman,while a third just stands there, looking dumb.

Image

The high elves fire their flintlocks point blank at the horse riders.

Image

They all miss, and one crit fails, blowing her other arm off. She is now dead. They really need to spend more money on weapons, but fancy uniforms.

The two remaining elves attempt to hack the riders off their mounts, but the couldnt get close enough with their tiny swords.

Image

The battle cleric charges the startled ranger.

Image

He just falls on his face. The ranger erupts with laughter.

Image

Which is cut short as the benifate decapitates him.

Image

The archers fire on the dwarves again, and again they fail miserably. The decide to do the logical thing and run away!

Image

LS leaps in front of the dwarves, yelling a battle cry.

Lord Starkrowe:"I will cut your little heads from your little shoulders very slowly so that you will feel it! Give up now while you have the chance!"

Image

The dwarves are truly petrified: One runs off the battlefield, one surrenders and the other runs towards the Dark Elves.

[FEAT SUCCESFUL]

Image

---FINAL TURN!---

Dwarves

The last dwarf slams the blunt end of his war pick into the side of the war chiefs face, knocking his helmet off, and felling the chief.

Image

The dwarf hero swings his axe at the pirate...

Image

Cutting him into little itty bitty pieces.

BANDITS ELIMINATED

Image

Argonians

The High elves combine fire on the nearest dark elf.

Image

*sighs*

:crushed:

Image

The knights finish off their remaining foes, the two captains both ending a useless redcoat. The berzerkers fail to overcome the Dwarf hero's armour though,

Image

Out of nowhere comes the Elf officer, deciding to do something useful, killing the dwarf for good.

Image

Starkrowe unleashes his fury upon the last dwarf, completely over killing him.

DWARVES ELIMINATED!

Image

The archers re-group, and take aim at the Dark Elvish cavalry, the only real threat left.

Image

The succeed in finally stopping the cavalry, killing a rider horse, as well as disrupting the other rider.

Image

The cleric and the benifate stare down the dark elf, who abandons his post and flees for his life.

Image

Dark Elves

The last survivors flee into the wilderness, leaving the last rider behind. He looks on in disgust, as his kin run away like little girls.

Image

He decides to die fighting...

Image

And slays a berzerker.

Image

Overwatch...

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

The battle was a ARGONIAN VICTORY!

I am aware of the dirt on these lego boards. I am also aware of how many pictures there are, and apologize. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the report, and if you bothered to read through this, thank you!

Until next time!

Epilogue

Starkrowe leans over the dying body of the War Cheif.

War Cheif:"It...was an honour, fighting beside you for so many years, Starkrowe... the only thing I ask of you, is.... kick those Elvish scum out of our kingdom!"

Image

The chief dies then and there. Starkrowe stares off into the distance, an anger slowly brewing inside of him.

Image

A soldier pulls Starkrowe out of his glare.

Soldier:"M'lord, come quickly!"

Image

The surviving Argonians struggle to hold a Dark Elf down.

Image

High Elf:'Lord Starkrowe, this is the only remaining Dark elf. The only other survivors ran off into the wilderness."

Image

*Thump!*

Starkrowe knocks the elf out with the pommel of his sword.

LS:"We head for the nearest city at once. These dark elves with suffer for the pain they have caused us! We will march on their lands now!"

Image

"We will chase the Storm"

lots of running away in this battle, which is always a bummer, but it made me doubly proud of that last dark elf on the field, i hope he breaks out and wreaks some sort of havoc soon

Thanks! The rules are still a bit blurry, but once the author has finished the rulebook, I will share them with the forum.

Thanks! The gameplay is quite different, but it has its similarities. He used to be on the forums but does not come on anymore.

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.
