This is my entry for the halloween hellhunt. My older brother was visiting us on the weekend (he is 20 year old) and I persuaded him to play brikwars with me. Good thing he is an older brother, as he had the patience to play with me a rather big game with gore effects. Warning though! The report is quite long, so to keep you interested to keep on reading I'll show you a little taste of the report:
The report starts!
Usually Brikpass is a boring place where brikwussies hide from normal minifigs. But this day is different...
The leaders of two armies have decided to go through the pass on the same day!
Count Shinypants: "Who are you, and why are you standing on the way of my army? We have important business to do on the other side!
The Dark Lord Krag Hag: "Me and my army are doing the same! Let us go first or die!
Count Shinypants: "Now now! We can pay for passage! No need for violence. How does 200 silver sound like?"
Necromancer: "I could get a new style for my beard with that sum!"
Vampire lord: "And I could rebuild my mansion!"
Players are not amused!
Count Shinypants: "Alright! Men, we are far better than those guys! We shall go first!"
Krag Hag: "We shall crush them like bugs! Get ready men!"
A little note: Every turn there are going to be reinforcements for both armies, until the we run out of them.
The armies line up against each other!
The count's right flank is protected by the harsh bull mercenaries and the Royal standard bearer. The banner grants +1 to skill to all friendly troops withing 4 inches.
The center is made of The count himself and four pikemen. The left flank consists of Buffly Puff the wizard, famous for his obsidian hand, his two adventurer bodyguards, a squad of spearmen and Sir Wolf, who can't be seen properly in this picture.
The Dark horde's left flank is manned by the Necromancer, a squad of the ferocious warriors of the north, and bolstered by a group of just raised skeletons.
The dark lord Krag Hag himself. He rides his fearsome wyrm.
A rather big force of orcs make up the right flank, led by a orc chieftain. The vampire lord is there too.
