Cutting to the chase Turn 1

Post by motorhead fan » Sat Oct 12, 2019 10:40 am

Hello Everyone,

welcome to my next forum battle, let's hope I actually finish this one!

This battle will be slightly different, it is inspired by an old battle with cars, in the battle, all the vehicles stayed in the same area and various obstacles would move along the battlefield, making it seem like they were on an endless road. The vehicles could move around to some extent, I will be attempting to recreate such a battle here.

Image
The APC rumbled along, the infantry had to balance on top given that it was carrying A BOMB RUMOURED TO BE SO POWERFUL THAT IT COULD BLOW UP AN ENTIRE PLANET!

Image
It was accompanied by an escort of a flying machine gun car, a normal machine gun car and 2 flying Dual-shotgun-Phaleks

Image
Such a weapon is highly valuable and a gang of maniacs gave chase. They brought along 3 Bike teams with various weapons and a machine gun lorry with some other guys on it too.

Image
Some local peaches also fancied blowing up a planet and began to pursue. The had a helicopter, a tank covered in stormtroopers and 2 Car teams with various weapons.

Image
Some pirates and friends spotted the speeding booty followed too, they have 4 boat teams with various weapons and a tank.

Image
And last but not least, a nearby dwarf gathered his friends and they embarked on a quest to blow up everyone they know. They have 5 knights, a sort of machine gun car and another machine gun vehicle covered in swordsmen.

SCORING
Each minifig kill is 1 POINT
Each small vehicle kill is 2 POINTS
Each big vehicle kill is 3 POINTS
Capturing the APC is 20 POINTS
Destroying the APC ends the game.

TEAMS
Phalek empire:
Gang of Maniacs:Ninja_bait
Peach scum: Hacos
Pirates: Space Bunny
Knights: Lordintype

Image
Various obstacles will spawn from here throughout the game. They will move to the back of the table 15 inches at a time.
Small vehicles can move 4 inches in any direction.
Big vehicles can move 3 inches in any direction.
Flying vehicles can move 5 inches in any direction.

This looks so fun, could I have the knights?

Side note: is this based on Mr Skeltals skeleton war?
The real Piltogg was the friends we made along the way.

The battle in question was way way older, before my time on the forums but it is similar in style to Mr Skeltals war.

Okay so the shotgun phaleks will take up position right behind the APC facing the oncoming cars and attack the purple car. All of the men on the APC and the Machingune car will attack the motercyle drivers. trying to cause a crash and create debry that the others have to dodge. the normal machine gun car is going to slam on the brakes and try to get someone to ram into th back of it and casue a wreck. The Flying machine gun car is going to try and take out the other flying vehicle with it s guns and men with guns.

The knights will all charge up the line and attack anyone they can. The larger vehicles will drive up and unload their passengers onto the pirate boats, in a boarding action

Orders for the peaches:
The guys on the tank will try to shoot the left maniac bike. The helicopter, the tank and the right cart will shoot the purple maniac cart and/or the guys riding on it.
the left cart tries to get close to the left manic bike and start a boarding action.
all figs without direct orders or who can't see their target just shoot somebody. All othe vehicles hold course.

Turn 1

Hello everyone, sorry for the long wait, I just had to get my shit together; now it's together in a great big stinking brown lump of shit, let's go.

play order was decided by Random number generator.
Spoiler
Show
Image
Shit's about to get real!

Image
The knights all run forward.

Image
Two pirates get chopped by the horsemen.

Image

The other knights jump down and murder the last guy.

Image
Here however, they only kill one guy.

Image
The horsemen whack their weapons uselessly against assorted things.

Image
All of the pirate infantry gather into one boat. There is also a Dwarf under there somewhere.

Image
These 2 get shot.

Image
The 2 Phaleks fire their shotguns at the purple van, dealing a bit of damage.

Image
One of the Space troopers fires his assault rifle at the bike, killing both riders and blowing it up.

Image
One of the guys over here gets shot by the other guy.

Image
The machine gun here blows up the trike, killing both on board.

Image
The flying car and the grenadiers fire at the helicopter.

Image
Damaging it but not killing it.

Image
The storm troopers shoot at various targets around them, they successfully fail to kill anyone.

Image
The tank and the helicopter shoot at the purple van, damaging it a lot and killing the driver, one of the guys riding it gets shot by a peach behind him.

Image
this guy gets a direct hit on the air next to the knight.

Image
The surviving maniacs on the purple van gun down all the space troopers.

DEBRIS
Image
The peaches manage to avoid all the broken bits and pieces, the others will have to deal with that next turn.

Image
The Phalek machine gun car hits the breaks and the peach car slams into the back at top speed. The car and both occupants die instantly, the larger car also sustains a fair amount of damage.
