Attack on Banshee Mansion (Turn 2 up)

Post by sahasrahla » Thu Apr 01, 2021 11:34 am

In the cold and forbidding land of Batsylvania....

Image

Heavy Metal Scout: Commander Alice! We've located the enemy base.
Alice: Finally, the time for vengeance has come.

ImageIMG_20210331_163456964

Alice: You will pay for Hetta's death, Bubblegum Banshees...!

ImageIMG_20210331_164903133

Bubblegum Banshee Sorceress: Whoa, intruders approaching!

ImageIMG_20210331_165858834

Banshee sorceress: Hey ladies, get ready for a tussel!
Banshee knight: um, rude??? not done with my makeup for my latest tiktok vid yet!

ImageIMG_20210331_170218272

Banshee sorceress: Hey, Queenie! Knock Knock! A bunch of whiney douche-canoes are here to fuck up our shit!
Banshee Queen Maeve: It is as I foresaw... The Day of Destiny has come at last...

ImageIMG_20210331_170746810

Banshee sorceress: Oh for the love of bubblegum.... Look, there's a lot of them out there so whenever you're done digging in pig entrails or whatever we could use a hand.

Meanwhile, in the swampy caverns beneath the Banshee Mansion...

bloop

ImageIMG_20210401_100242739

Swamp thing: Coast is clear boyz! C'mon up!

ImageIMG_20210401_100659703

Swamp Boyz: YEEEAAAAHHHHRRRRBLUBLUBLUB

ImageIMG_20210401_101838197

Swamp Daddy Bubba: Well damn howdy if this ain't the stinkiest, slimiest, most doggone beautiful place I done seen in ages!

ImageIMG_20210401_101526560

Swamp Daddy Bubba: Plant the flag Cletus, this is Swamp Boyz territory now!

Welcome to ATTACK ON BANSHEE MANSION! This is a sequel to my last forum battle, The Krumbly Kastle. Alice, the last survivor of the Heavy Metal Harriers, has taken command of the mercenary group and leads an attack on the home base of their arch-rival, the Bubblegum Banshees! Meanwhile some swamp boyz emerge from subterranean depths to cause mischief of their own.

This is a cramped and chaotic build which of course makes photography difficult... so hopefully that gives an idea of what we're working with.

There are five factions available:

ImageIMG_20210401_120743392

The Heavy Metal Harriers.
Four knights, two Heavy Gold Lions, three Harrier Scouts, three Heavy Metal Magicians, and hero Alice with the fiery fantasy babe cliche. Objective: Eliminate the Banshee Queen! -Admiral Poshlily

ImageIMG_20210401_121408104

The Bubblegum Banshees. Five bubblegum knights, four bubblegum sorceresses, two elite Banshee Blade Babes, one Banshee Berserker, and hero Queen Maeve (not pictured), with the mystical seer cliche. Objective: fight off the Harrier assault! Special rule: Queen Maeve is currently locked away in her seeing tower, reading the future. The player controlling her can elect to continue her vision for as many turns as desired, and at the end of each turn she will gain a buff or bonus for herself or her team. The longer she searches the future, the stronger she'll be, but the rest of the Banshees will be fighting without their hero! -Zupponn

ImageIMG_20210401_121908583

The Swamp Boyz. Six swamp bros and hero Swamp Daddy Bubba, with the redneck fishman cliche (whatever that means). Objective: make a big ruckus! -Ninja_Bait

Secret Faction 1. Arrives on turn 3. -BoultonPaulDefiant

Secret Faction 2. Arrives on turn 4. -RedRover

Claim your spot in this epic battle!!!

Swamp daddy bubba orders his boyz to start bringing the house down, literally! attack floorboards and load-bearing columns! Preferably ones under other people's feet! Bubba uses his heroic feat to start filling the basement with noxious (to drylanders) swamp gas

TURN ONE

SWAMP BOYZ (Ninja_bait)

ImageIMG_20210407_120411610

Swamp Daddy Bubba: Let's bring the house down boyz! Get to werk on that ceiling!
Swamp boyz: YAAAA
The swamp boyz start going ham on the cave walls!

ImageIMG_20210407_121658815

Swamp boy: hey boss, it's not givin' an inch! But we might be able to tunnel up over there in front of the house!
It turns out that the Banshees wisely invested in top-grade materials and the entire floor of the mansion is built from a single 32x16 brick. Certainly nothing to do with me not wanting to bother to take apart and restructure the entire section to make it collapsable, no sir.

ImageIMG_20210407_121756585

Swamp Daddy: Ooh, get ready boyz, I can feel a biggun comin on...

ImageIMG_20210407_121834290

Swamp Daddy: PBBPHBPBHPHBT
Bubba lets rip the biggest, nastiest fart ever to be released within a hundred square miles (at 102 miles his record would be smashed by the late Farmer Hubbard's old donkey, whose BM obliterated Hubbar'd house, his wife and children, and himself, and earned the donkey the official title of The Ass, on account of its terrifying butt power). [Feat Successful!]

ImageIMG_20210407_122042734

Bubblegum Knight: Um, what the flower is that smell?
Bubblegum Blade Babe: I don't know, but it's awful!
The noxious fumes waft through the floorboards. Girls don't fart, obviously, so the olfactory experience is wholly novel to them.

BUBBLEGUM BANSHEES
(Zupponn)

ImageIMG_20210407_122752936

Bubblegum Sorceress: I think that's my ex coming out of our beautiful swamp! Girls, activate the flower defense!

ImageIMG_20210407_123051656

The Bubblegum witches gather together to join their sparkly magical power.

ImageIMG_20210407_130909519

Below, the skull flowers come to life and attack! (ignore the knocked over swamp boi back there, my fat fingers kept causing trouble posing this shot)

ImageIMG_20210407_131655081

Bubblegum Knights rush to defend the front entrance.

ImageIMG_20210407_132116685

Blade Babe 1: Girl your hair is fire today!
Blade Babe 2: Thanks babe! Your gold chain bikini armor is so exploitative and nonfunctional, I'm super jealous!

ImageIMG_20210407_132227315

Banshee Berserker: Stinky intruders... I just want...

ImageIMG_20210407_132348472

Banshee Berserker: TO FINISH MY FLOWER PRINTS!!!! RRRRAAAAAAGEEEEEEE!!!!!

ImageIMG_20210407_132427503

Banshee Queen Maeve: Yes... I see.... colors! Beautiful colors! How incredible!
Queen Maeve searches the future and sees... well, something, anyway. She gains one automatic success on a future heroic feat, which Zupponn can declare on any turn when he sends in orders. Pick a good one dude

HEAVY METAL HARRIERS (Admiral Poshlily)

ImageIMG_20210407_132942583

The entire force rushes the front door.

ImageIMG_20210407_133050434

The scouts get there first. They attack the door but crossbows don't do much to break it down.

ImageIMG_20210407_133450862

The heavier troops lumber along behind. They'll get there... eventually.

A bloodless turn one, but full of excellent orders! Excited for turn two!! Send in orders!!!

Big Bubba says, "lemme show you how's it's done, boyz," and with an "OH YEAH," kool-aid mans his way through a wall. The boyz follow towards the main melee, killing skull flowers if they need to but hopefully the swamp gas gets them.

I love how these factions have so many unique characters, with stuff that ties them together. I need to do that more with my factions.

TURN 2

SWAMP BOYZ (Ninja_bait)

ImageIMG_20210416_105802661

Swamp Daddy: Lemme show you how it's done, boyz!

ImageIMG_20210416_105921311

Swamp Daddy: OOHHH YEAAAHHHHH

ImageIMG_20210416_110240917

Bubba bursts out into the open, and finds himself face-to-face with a heavily-armored warband! Fearless, he skewers a Heavy Metal Magician on his trident. Others in the vicinity reel back, horrified by the stench wafting from him.

ImageIMG_20210416_110433328

The swamp boyz rush out behind him, ignoring the haunted flowers completely. Some start scaling the cliffside.

BUBBLEGUM BANSHEES (Zupponn)

ImageIMG_20210416_110951601

The haunted plants shamble out after the swamp boyz.

ImageIMG_20210416_111112293

They manage to grab one. His muffled screams fill the air for only a moment before they devour him.

ImageIMG_20210416_113506586

One of the haunted plants withers and curls into itself, poisoned by swamp daddy's noxious farts.

ImageIMG_20210416_113921849

The banshee berserker, now lathered into a nice rage, charges the front doors.
Banshee knights: Wait, wtf you doing Betty?

ImageIMG_20210416_114334712

Banshee berserker: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HARD IT IS TO FIND NICE FLOWERS IN THIS DAMN SWAMP???
The front door shatters beneath her mace, crushing one Harrier Scout and disrupting another.

ImageIMG_20210416_151310578

Banshee knights: ok fuck it, banzai time.

ImageIMG_20210419_124651405

Screaming their patented war cry, "Fuck you, basic bitches!" they charge into battle. They slay two more Harrier Scouts. Attacks against Alice and one of the knights fall short of killing, though.

ImageIMG_20210419_125210100

The banshee sorceresses gather their power once more for a second spell. "Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble...!"

ImageIMG_20210419_142945059

Bubblegum rains over the battlefield, slowing everyone who walks in it to half speed.

ImageIMG_20210419_145358578

Meanwhile upstairs, the elite Blade Babes start to get catty.
Blade Babe 1: ummm scuse me??? Exploitative and nonfunctional? I'll have you know my boyfriend made this armor special for me.
Blade babe 2: Right, the boyfriend who left your sorry ass for Betty the Berserker down there. His taste remains questionable.

ImageIMG_20210419_151059146

Banshee Queen Maeve: *snort* Ooooohhh! I can taste the color of sound! All of reality lies naked before me! Who knew the cosmos had such funky-looking nipples...
Queen Maeve continues gazing into the future and gains FORESIGHT PROTECTION! Zupponn, when you next send in orders indicate one unit (it can be Maeve if you want) to receive the protection of the Banshee Queen's foresight. That minifig will automatically survive the next attack that would otherwise kill her.

HEAVY METAL HARRIERS
(NPC'd)

ImageIMG_20210419_151233824

Bubblegum knight: like omg, those sorceresses are such bitches. I'll never get this stuff out of my hair!!

ImageIMG_20210419_151442014

Alice: I think I've got just the tool for you.
Alice decapitates the knight.

ImageIMG_20210420_114052661

Two Harrier Knights gang up on the bubblegum knight and slay her. Other knights advance but are slowed by the bubblegumsplosion, preventing them from engaging.

ImageIMG_20210420_114247589

The Heavy Lion Knights move up and attack Swamp Daddy. He double-critfails his armor roll but a redshirt saves him.

ImageIMG_20210420_114544085

A commotion arises from the south. A new army has arrived, led by none other than...!

ImageIMG_20210420_114740020

Hot Knight: Yes, hahaha! 'Tis I, Geoffrey the Hot Knight! I cometh in this time of dire need to defend the noble lady Alice of the Red Hair and the Mighty Axe, for on mine honor I do owe her my life, on account of her timely intervention during a period of the greatest distress and abuse which was inflicted upon my virile person by a beast most hideous.

ImageIMG_20210420_114811102

Hot knight: Fear not, fair damsels! We shall ensure that no harm falls upon you! Forward, my White Knights!

BoultonPaulDefiant's secret faction has arrived! After escaping the Krubly Kastle, Hot Knight has been promoted to Hot Hero, and now leads a squad of White Knights in defense of his fair maiden! He commands three spearmen, two archers, and three elite Damsel Defenders. Objective: Keep Commander Alice safe at all costs!

OVERWATCH

Swamp boyz rush out and start a melee with as many factions as they can

Big Bubba (feat) appears in the witches' circle. "Bubba, bubba, toil and trubba is right, bwitches!" He murders all of them.
