Fleet Forum Battle

Postby ninja_bait » Fri Mar 02, 2018 9:14 am

It's a forum battle!  I've never run one before and never seen one run with fig-scale fleets so this should be fun.  I'm going to update weekly and run two rounds of combat per week whenever I feel like it.  We're rolling with the 2018 rules as of 3/2/18.  Orders can be DMed to me.

Image
While transporting a critical intelligence datacube, the Artemis has been caught out of position by a Counciliar patrol!  The Council has instructed the patrol to board the Artemis and capture the datacube.  Out of range of reinforcements, the Artemis will have to destroy the enemy patrol themselves.  Also there's a secret faction, to appear around week 3.

Signups:
The red ones: motorhead fan
The blue ones: bann154
The secret ones: ReconMiner

Overwatch:

Stat cards (linked to higher res):

Freighter is carrying 4 commandos, 4 standard infantry, and 1 jetpack specialist (deploys from rear door)

Sky Shark bridge crew: 1 pilot, 1 tek
Image

Secondary crew: 1 leader, 2 gunners, 1 mechanix

Sky Shark is carrying 4 ninja troopers and 5 space marines, including 1 explosives specialist (deploys from front door)
Image

Image

The Artemis has got 2 pilots on standby, 2 gunners, 2 security officers, 2 deck technicians (who can each deploy 1 deck turret once fighters scramble), 2 engineers
Image
Image
Image
Image

Bridge crew: 1 pilot, 1 tek, 1 leader.  Note that they have two guns in storage to defend the bridge.
Image

The battle is not balanced in terms of U" but I think the difficulty of the objectives should balance that out.

Round 1

THE RED ONES


Counciliar Fleet moves up and fires on the Artemis in a single combined attack.
Image

The M ako and Frigate make successful attacks, the larger two vessels are still out of range and do not land their shots.

PEW PEW PEW
Image

The Frigate also fires its torpedo.
Image

Total damage is 183, knocking the Artemis down 9 pegs to size 38 as explosions burst against its armored hull
Image

THE BLUE ONES
Artemis responds by targeting the frigate with its forward batteries.
Image

"Crumbs."
Image

PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW
Image

The 14 guns deal a total of 143 and take 10 points of size off the frigate (now at size 3).  The Artemis is unable to target the smaller vessel with its torpedoes.
Image

The fighters deploy.
Image

The Valkyrie II fires its lasers at the frigate, dealing 58 damage.  The frigate valiantly tanks 48 and succumbs to the remaining damage.

PEW PEW
Image

"Only one week until retirement"
Image

The Artemis deploys its interceptors, which fire on the M ako along with the rear Valkyrie.  The combined fire is 17, reducing the M ako by 1 point to size 4.

Deckhands move to pick up deck guns.

"Look at all that destruction down there.  Sure would be a shame if they just blew up all those shiny ships.  Someone who can really appreciate inches like that should be in command of those vessels.  Someone like me... REXX COLTORAN, SPACE PIRATE!"
Image
"Just have to wait for the right opportunity... When they're too distracted by each other to stop me and my mateys!"

P.S: Natalya, if you're reading this thread: can you turn off the M ako to Shinji f ilter please?  I don't care about your Initial D opinions, I just want to name things after sharks.

Snow day today in NY, might as well update this battle.

Round 2

The Red Ones

The Sky Shark moves up and deploys some marines who begin to float over to the wreck.
ImageImage

The fleet moves up.  The Sky Shark's Engineer redirects energy from their deflectors to boost speed.  The freighter's Engineer blows a gasket in the starboard engines trying to do the same.
Image

The M ako fires at one of the Chickadees and tries to draw them away, but does no damage.
Image

The freighter fires on the nearest Valkyrie, dealing a crippling 5 inches of damage.
Image

Gunner 1 on the Sky Shark fires at one of the Chickadees, and takes it WAY OVER THE TOP with a torpedo.
Image

BOOM one Chickadee is blown up.
Image

BOOM the shockwave takes out the other one.
Image

Gunner 2 tries to do the same to the heavy fighter, but whiffs the shot.
Image

The Sky Shark begins to deploy its boarding party, which efficiently cuts down the deckhands.
Image

The Blue Ones

Fighters deploy.  The Seagull attempts a high-G maneuver that overheats Engine 1.
Image

"Charging up the SHIP Buster!  Blast Shields deployed!"
ImageImage

"Abort!  Abort!  System failure, attempting to reboot!"
Image

The Artemis targets the M ako with its rear cannons, and the wounded Valkyrie contributes with its smaller lasers.  The M ako holds on desperately to its last inch, though.
Image

The Artemis also fires its forward batteries at the Sky Shark at point blank range, as well as a torpedo.  The lead Valkyrie also fires everything it's got.  Together they deal a devastating 16" of damage (312 points).
Image

Security on the Artemis establishes a defensive line.
Image

Image

Thanks!  That's a huge compliment.  It is my personal goal to bring back the goodness from my lurking days in 2009.

Ignore tanks!  Post spaceships!
