Operation Schadenfreude - TURN 3 & 4

Postby Kastrenzo » Tue Jul 18, 2017 6:56 pm

ImageIMG_20170718_194530 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The last fighter pilot, seeing several of his wingmates get shot down by ground fire,  and sensing that this raid could turn into an utter failure if something isn't done fast.. . makes a rash decision

Strilka Pilot: "FOR FREEDOM!"

ImageIMG_20170718_194733 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

.. .WHAT THE FUCK HAVE YOU D...

ImageIMG_20170718_194903 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

KAFUCKINGBOOM

ARHUS SUPERPORTAL POWER SOURCE DESTROYED
GAME WILL END AT THE END OF TURN 4.

Image2017-07-18_08-34-08 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The fighter is incinerated,  the reactor breaks down and the sky for miles around flashes purple.. . The fireball of the explosion is rather small,  Austrians nearby get flung and killed,  but the explosion seems to have been of a different kind

Image35842881032_62b9440558_o by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

.. .

What

the

fuck

Time itself seems to stop for a few seconds,  the very fabric of reality tears open,  when things return to normal .. .

Image20170718_195505 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Pulpy masses of blue substance bubble out of the ground all around .. . Did they just cause the planet's core to blow up or something? .. .

Image20170718_195640 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The blue gets bigger .. . Soldiers from all sides stare in awe a moment at the strange things

Image20170718_195758 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

!!!

Suddenley,  Weird blue figures start to flood out of the mass.

Image20170718_200106 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Image20170718_200116 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Oh god.. .


Now enters the Ayy'Lamao Combine,  a race of energy feeders from another dimension,  their Cannon fodder drones,  a species known as the "Jib" form the vanguard of the Combine's invasion.

Image20170718_200344 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Not privy to what's going on below him,  the bomber pilot gains alititute and makes a pass at the M-Thronian troops on the eastern flank and drops all of his smart-bombs

ImageIMG_20170718_200615 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

.. .

ImageIMG_20170718_200910 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Critical hit,  5 get blown up and 1 escapes the blast

Image2017-07-18_08-46-50 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Having spent the entire engagement away from danger,  the Shocktrooper Elites and Agent "Bulldozer" see what's going on below them and decide to take action,  the Elites fire Shuka plasma machineguns into the hordes massing below

ImageIMG_20170718_201400 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

4 of them are killed in the closest group.. .

ImageIMG_20170718_201514 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Bulldozer: "See how you like this!"

He jumps off the building .. .

ImageIMG_20170718_201634 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

.. . Slamming into the ground with the force of a small meteorite into the ground on top of two Jib, they get launched.. .

ImageIMG_20170718_201826 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

.. . they hit the ground and splatter... These things aren't very tough it seems.

INTEL GAINED - Jib drones possess only 3 points of armor as opposed to minifig 4.  

ImageIMG_20170718_201902 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Guardians in the same alleyway, fire their pistols,  one misses but the other gets a kill, blue "blood" splatters everywhere and the Jib falls to the ground without making a sound, dead.

ImageIMG_20170718_202849 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Even more of these interdimensional beasts flood out of their "portals".  *5 Jib appear in each of the groups*

END OF TURN.


OBJECTIVES FOR GR HAVE BEEN COMPLETED

OBJECTIVE FOR AYY'LAMAO COMBINE - KILL


Turn order is as follows Until game end

Ossum content. Really approve of getting all those V-Wing pilot heads together and making a uniform with them.

I didnt recieve any orders from anyone by the time I was ready to act them out *Archduke gave me an order that was invalid,  so it was ignored*

ImageIMG_20170724_232941 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The Austro sergeant recovers from his burning

ImageIMG_20170724_233227 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

He grabs a Jib and holds him for his partner to shoot

ImageIMG_20170724_233340 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Critical Fail.. need I say any more?

Image20170724_233818 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Critical Success + Overkill.  In their last stand the IM troops mow down 69 Jib.

Image20170724_234030 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The Chimera Tank then slams into the crowd and flattens another 3

Image20170724_234118 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Mthrone

Image20170724_234246 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Image20170724_234727 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Bulldozer gets up..

Image20170724_234819 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

He orders the troops in the rear to retreat to the shuttle,  and to bring it to pick him up *for exit next turn*

Image20170724_234849 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The bomber leaves the battlefield

Image20170724_234919 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The troops retreat *same on the other flank but looksl ike I forgot to take a picture*

Image20170724_235129 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Bulldozer fires on the Magik Missile turret and destroys it

Image20170724_235203 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The explosion kills 3 jib too

Image20170724_235446 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The guardians advance to cover Bulldozer

Image20170724_235454 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

And the Elite keeps overwatch with a machinegun




THE LAST TURN IS UPON YOU

My schedule has changed,  the rules for orders are as follows

- Depending on how busy I am, I may enact the turn the next day,  or not.   everyone can send their orders at once,   and last minute changes have a 6pm (5 eastern) deadline.
I feel this is most respectful of the original rules I provided.

Please note that some units will have Plot armor,  they can still be taken out and counted as a kill,  but just a forewarning that a "kill" may just be a wound.

The teleporter will explode at the conclusion of the GR turn.  and the playing field has more or less been evened.  SURVIVE.

Im posting turn 4 in this thread


Image20170726_200648 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Dozer retreats.. .

Image20170726_200654 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Most of the troops make it to the transport

Image20170726_200826 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Guardians fire at the M-Throne troopers, missing one and killing one

Image20170726_201017 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The Elite on the roof goes into beast mode with the machinegun *I forget how manyn ow,  but I rolled like 5 69's in a row it was boneriffic.

Image20170726_201042 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

He fucks the crayon guys up the ass with plasma fire.. killing a bunch in a burst

Image20170726_201231 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Heroic Feat - Heroic escape
Dozer reaches the transport just in time,   and it leaves.

(All GR Units left on the field are now stranded, and will die)

Image20170726_201127 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Surrounded by death, the last Austrian creeps around hoping he's not spotter,  and a Jib pops out of the mess of blue and blows his head up with the disruptor

Image20170726_201213 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Commander Artimec speaks to the Magikstrate Remnants

Artimec: "Blast,  we're no good here!, we can either die here now for nothing or live to fight another day,  I choose the latter.. board the tank,  we're getting out of dodge before the reactor blows!"

Image20170726_201341 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The IM remnants board the Chimera and it putts away

(IM has retreated from the battle, Commander Artimec lives to fight another day)

Image20170726_201425 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Left alone in piles of dead bodies,  no transports and a few Galacian Guardians hunting them in the gore,  Bob the M-Thronian and his compatriot share a final moment before embracing destiny
Bob: "Well,  this is it,  everyone else has fled but the empire will not falter we will fight to the last, what do you say?!

Image20170726_201524 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

the two M-Throne troops left,  in one last attempt to spit in the face of fate,  lunge from cover and fire at the Guardians... their lasers uncerimoniously plink off the shields...  well shit.

Image20170726_201625 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Then,  what seems like a gust of wind pushes everything south with tremendous force,  The reactor goes into full meltdown and explodes,  sending everything flying hundreds of feet before being pulverized.  The entire eastern continent of Arhus is turned into a wasteland hellscape.

The battle is over,  but the campaign has just begun.

FIN

Got it all off bricklink and brickowl

they were kind of a waste of time,  

When I made them,  I was inspired by the weird blue aliens from xcom apocalypse.

I still have most of them intact,  but I've started using the blue bodies as prisoner uniforms since they're bland and lots in stock
