Backwater Skirmish

Postby smaket » Wed Sep 19, 2018 11:00 pm

This Battle report is from a modified brikwars game I played with my friends back in 2016(or 2017?), I've just been too lazy to upload it until now.

*disclaimer: The battle report skips around a bit which happens when you're playing a live game.

**disclaimer: Yes I used space ninjas, space mafia, space conquistadors and loosely Akkadia
I had just read Quest of Piltogg which is dope and I've always loved Natalya's stuff like Death War and Jungle Rampage
Also a big fan of scratch


Introduction:

In the far reaches of the outer rim of the Nehellenium galaxy
various forces battle for relevancy.



Image

*Akkadia (Whoops)

A loved one is taken

Image

Drill bot and the other militia members


Image

Akkadian Ally Overwatch:


Image

Space Don Farro with his mob hitmen backing him up


Image

El Cid looking menacing with his Conquistadors posted up behind him


Image

Papa Shinobi and his space ninja entourage


Image

Akkadian Ally's stat card, objectives were written on the back


Image

CLAN MACDOOGAL Overwatch SHEEPRIDERS are next to CHIEF HAGIS while grandma is behind the hut and the beserkers are flexing their shirtless bearded bodies in front.


Image

CHIEF HAGIS wears a sick gold viking helmet with platinum plated horns and has a bitchin double edged battleaxe


Image

The Moonmen of Jupiter 6 Overwatch:
Moonman COMMANDER is flanked by his soldiers to the left and his assault troopers to the right


Image

Closer up, you can see he wields a sweet beam saber and sports a rockin' fully grown mustache


Image

The Knights of Cydonia Overwatch:
the two Squires/repairmen are up front, with the 3 Cydonian Knights at their rear, and their hero Sir John Hulking over all of them

Image

The USTR Overwatch:
The Teddys are all over the ridge, Murder Monkey that dastardly mechanation of swinging mercenary scum is near the bottom of the picture. The Teddy clone in charge of this regiment is Teddy 28 he rides a black horse and wields a saber.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                Game Start

Image

Backside view of The Akkadians Allies, the Space Slavs move up only to do almost nothing the entire game


Image

USTR moves up


Image

USTR starts a defensive horsewall


Image

Grandma moves up and pulverizes a Cydonian squire's noggin (They will remember this)


Image

Moon man soldiers and Moonman COMMANDER move up and over the wall to hack the crashed Akkadian UFO device (to hack the device a unit must stand a whole turn adjacent to the crashed device without being interrupted)


Image

That decrepit horror: Murder monkey moves onto the stone fence and surveys the battlefield with his hideous eyes


Image

The Cydonian Knights seek revenge for their fallen countryman (they fail to do any damage to grandma)


Image

CHIEF HAGGIS OF CLAN MACDOOGAL throws his battleaxe like a boomerang and beheads a moonman soldier, but not before Drill bot emerges right underneath the Akkadian Device (much to the dismay of the moonmen soldiers trying to hack it)


Image

Sir John's attack of righteous vengeance is not enough to penetrate grandma's thick crusty skin


Image

The Moonman COMMANDER attempts to CONVERT drill bot to the blinding bliss of mother Moon but  instead triggered his robo sleeper agent protocol (Heroic feat Crit fail +1  unit for RLA)

Image

a lone moon man soldier stares down two sheepriders


Image

CHIEF HAGIS decapitates the moonman soldier after he succeeded in shooting off one of CHIEF HAGIS'S SHEAPS legs

Image

Sir John swings his mighty polearm once more to avenge his fallen attendant


Image

He succeeds to cleave off one of poor Grandma's arms


Image

(Not pictured:The Moonmen manage to hack the device and retrieve the disc)

Teddy Roosevelt 28 murders the Moonman carrying the disc and takes it for "The United States of Me!" all while remaining seated on his trusty stead


Image

The USTR rough riders use their advanced Teddy Tactics™  to create a Wall of Horses


Image

they then show the commies what for!


Image

the RLA sleeper agent (formerly MoonMan Commander) attempts to kill teddy 28 and fails


Image

the slavs move up... once again


Image

CHIEF HAGIS Seeking to send more trespassers to hell for the death of his sheep throws his mighty axe and kills two of the space slavs


Image]

one of the Cydonian Knights manages to cut off teddy 28's hand that was carrying the disc


Image

teddy and his horse kick the shit out of him though


Image

The rough riders climb onto the ridge and open fire, mercilessly slaughtering the poor Moonman Assault Trooper's 2 compadres


Image

The sole survivor is in anguish


Image

Don Farro uses his valentines day special but its as if he was using rubber bullets! (The Viking's skin is too thick)


Image

The slavs fearing they wont be able to get any sort of action start to advance towards the RLA


Image

Grandma uses one of the Cydonian Knights as a human projectile


Image

To great effect KaPOW!!


Image

The Cydonian make-shift Projectile kills everything in it's path (Teddy 28, Teddy's horse, the RLA sleeper agent, and two Cydonian Knights)


Image

(he's leaping into the air)
Sir John is quite dis-pleased with Grandma and does what any Cydonian Mega Knight worth their salt would do..


Image

Pelver-ize!!!

( heroic feat to crush Grandma with his very strong Pelvis  succeeds)


Image

After recovering from the shock of losing his whole squad the lone Moonman Assault Trooper proceeds
lay into the teddy firing line

Image

his first shot hits


Image

and he keeps firing until only one of the roughriders remain...


Image

(Not pictured: after delivering an *EPIC* monologue he shoots the last roughrider on the ridge in the head)

overlooking the carnage his vengeance had wrought, the lone Assault Trooper takes off his helmet and just stands for a little while. He says a silent prayer for his fallen brethren and curses "why couldn't it have been me".

Image

The Trooper sheds a single tear
wow how sad


Image

After killing the vile and horrendous Murder Monkey  Sir John of The Cydonian Knights retrieves the disc


Image

(Not pictured: Sir John then fires up his boosters and gets the hell out by "ironman-ing" out )
Winning the game for the Knights of Cydonia!


--------------------------------------END OVERVIEW-----------------------------------------------------------

Image

There's some stuff that happened that wasn't pictured like the RLA and Stalin MKII killing the mob hitmen and I think somebody looked in the Viking shed (Didn't find anything)


-------------------------------------------EXTRA-----------------------------------------------------------

Nathan made a n-a-z-i blood ritual how ORIGINAL

There were a bunch of different character sheets I made but I can't find them right now 8)

Really fun battle, Don Farro's branch of the space mafia is now Double Kanon(tm) and the Mobfather expects great things from him.
