Graveyard Ambush

Postby MasterEcabob » Sat Jan 24, 2009 9:08 pm

The Knights of Lareut and a young maiden travel to a graveyard to mourn and show respect to the brave soldiers who guarded the Kingdom of Lareut in the past.

Image

But suddenly, the dead knights come to life!

Image

Lord Ka, who was killed by one a traitor, sees the current Knights of Lareut as responsible for his death.

Image

In a fit of rage he starts the battle.

Image

On Lord Ka's orders, the other skeletons attack.

Image

Luckily this knight is able to raise her shield in time to block the Skeleton's deadly blow.

Image

Quick on her toes, the knight counters with her ax.

Image

Skeletons bleed black.

Image

A Skeleton readies his javelin.

Image

"Aw man, not again!"

Image

The Skeletons form up on Lord Ka's tomb.

Image

While the Skeleton Assassin sneaks into enemy territory.

Image

Fully recovered from her first encounter, this knight pulls out her crossbow and decides to shoot first and ask questions later.

Image

Including questions like "am I supposed to aim at the Skeleton?"

Image

On the other side of the battle, a knight notices the Skeleton Assassin and decides to do something about it.

Image

"And stay down!"

Image

On the other other side of the battle, a knight lunges at Lord Ka.

Image

"Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!"

Image

Finally finished laughing at the stupidity of the knight's attack, Lord Ka takes a swing at the knight with his mighty black flagpole o' doom.

Image

But his laughing spell has allowed the knight enough time to dodge the blow!

Image

Taking advantage of Lord Ka's exposed side, the knight lunges.

Image

"Who's laughing now?"

Image

Finally coming to his senses, Lord Timothy charges the Skeleton line.

Image

SPLAT!

Image

Lord Timothy tramples his foe and continues his charge.

Image

But his charge is soon brought to a stop.

Image

"Take that!"

Image

Unnoticed in all the commotion, a Skeleton sneaks up on a knight.

Image

And looses the element of surprise.

Image

Meanwhile, a knight chases the recovered Assassin.

Image

While this knight moves slowly toward the battlefield.

Image

Finally at the battlefield, the knight readies her crossbow.

Image

Headshot!

Image

Not wanting to be one up'd by her partner, this knight readies her crossbow.

Image

Groundshot!

Image

With the knights celebrate their victory against Lord Ka, the Assassin sneaks up to Lord Timothy's body.

Image

And deals a killing blow!

Image

Seeing this, a knight shoots at the Assassin with all her might.

Image

"What do you mean there was something in the way?"

Image

With the tombstone in pieces, the pursuing knight continues to chase after the Assassin.

Image

And continues to chase him.

Image

And continues to chase him.

Image

And finally gets fed up running and decides to settle things the old fashioned way.

Image

Realizing he is the last man standing, this Skeleton decides to flee.

Image

Surrounded, the skeleton approaches a statue.

Image

"Did it just-"

Image

"Ahh! It's alive, it's alive!"

Image

Thinking quickly, the knight tries to destroy the statue.

Image

With try being the key word.

Image

In a last ditch effort, a knight hurls her ax at the statue.

Image

But it appears that this knight is just as inaccurate with axes as she is with crossbows.

Image

"Hang on, I'll save you!"

Image

"... -_-"

Image

Impale'd

Image

With the archers dead and the lone knight off who-knows-where, the Skeleton prepares his mace to finish off the knight who killed Lord Ka.

Image

Apparently he hadn't put much thought into anything past that.

Image

And the victory goes to the Knights of Lareut!

An overall shot of the battle.

Image

Thanks for looking!

Very entertaining, especially the bit with the flail. Was it a solo battle?

I'm glad you guys liked it!

It was a solo battle (the closest thing to a LEGO fan I know is my little brother, who refuses to play because I always "cheat").

As for the mace/flail/whatever, I thought it made it a bit anticlimactic, but when the alternative was another dozen or so pictures as the Skeleton and the knight battled it out, I'm very glad the guy got a critical failure.

Small story-driven battles are my favorites. Well done, but you could have included a pic that showed the knights' faces!

Nice flail. Entertaining battle.

Well, since Pesgores just swarmed the forum by bumping all the forum battles, I am forced to do the same!

BUMP!

I asked him to do that because I wanted to move them and was too lazy to track them all down myself. Sorry about that.

I dunno, Pesgores tends to get a little overzealous about forum battles

You are correct.

I have that urge to organise tournaments if the response of other people is positive (and you never saw my "LEGOlympics"...I made 3 "Olympic games" with LEGO®, with quite a few sports and stats for each individual player. Another tournament I made was a football one, with stats for each minifig of the 62 total, with teams of 8 players each, except one of them).

So I am just organising a little something, and showing to everyone what is happening (Forum Battles tend to be cooler because it involves people we know in the forum).

I understand the need to organize, but you should have been fine just bumping the Top threads since those would lead directly to each individual turn of battle.

Oh everybody quit whining so much. You're just disoriented because you don't have silvadream's posts to complain about and you're not sure what to do.

It seems like that would be true, but you completely underestimate my laziness when it comes to forum moderation. Pegosaurus's bumping technique was the correct one.
