First Strike on Tikrit

Post by Ben-Jammin » Thu Mar 05, 2015 2:28 pm

Image

The planet of Tikrit is known as being one of the most corrupt, poverty-stricken hellholes anywhere along the edge of Galaxia Nehellenium. Unsurprisingly, it is also now firmly in the hands of OASIS, numbering as one of a several dozen individual planets that have fallen to their relentless advance. However, all of that is about to change very soon. A new coalition has been raised among the powers of the Brikverse in order to bring an end to the lawlessness of OASIS, and today will mark their first strike.

Image

Due to heavier fighting on other worlds, the OASIS forces here have also allied themselves with a number of other heretic groups who share similar goals and ideals. Their leader is an individual by the name of Rayyan Aahil, one of Aboo Baka al-Baghdaddy's lieutenants. Rayyan has been busy rallying peaches to his cause, as well as almost anyone who is willing to support the goals of OASIS, including the slave traders of Tikrit. Among them are the infamous man known simply as "Razor" and his sidekick Jeb, who - apart from his adoration of blades and twinkies - is known for speaking exclusively in Internet memes.

Rayyan: "I'll definitely take the girl on the left, but I'm torn between the useful idiot and the dumb brute."

Jeb: "whynotboth.jpg?"

Image

Rayyan: "Ah, hell with it. We'll take all of them."

Image

In the meanwhile, citizens from Tikrit who defied the will of Rayyan are now on their way to their execution. Sadly this appears to be the last stop along their line.

Heretic soldier: "Get out here you old bastard!"

Old Man: "No please, I'm just an old man!"

Image

Little do the heretics realize however, that their merriment is about to come to a swift end.

General Schmidt: "Well, miss Reynolds? What can you observe about our adversary from the heights of this unnaturally-colored plateau?"

Agent Reynolds: "It seems our intelligence was correct. There are some OASIS members down there, and plenty of peaches. But why are there so many yellows with them? Surely they haven't converted that many?"

General Schmidt: "It makes no difference! If they wish to join OASIS in heresy, then they can die accordingly!"

Agent Reynolds: "They also seem to be armed with a great amount of Brisovet wargear. That's strange; there's no Brisovet positions anywhere near Tikrit."

General Schmidt: "Those damn commies will sell to anyone if it causes trouble for us. Don't worry - they'll get theirs soon enough! For now however, we must liberate this world."

Agent Reynolds: "There certainly are a lot of the heretics down there, sir; and they also seem to have quite a few hostages."

Image

General Schmidt: "Then its a good thing we brought the BIG GUNS! Gunner crews, report!"

Image

Gunner 1: "Yo mama's so ugly, she went into a draugr crypt and came out with a job application!"

Gunner 2: "Yeah, and yo mama's so damn poor, children from space Africa send her 25 coins a month!"

Gunner 1: "Well - "

Image

General Schmidt: "You two! Shut the hell up and load that cannon! We have work to do!"

Gunners: "Yessir!"

Image

Below the General's position, the heretics have no idea of the storm that is soon to overtake them.

Rayyan: "Well, the base seems secure for now. Everyone remain on standby; I'm going to try my new bitch out!"

Image

With a deafening roar, the first artillery shells fall directly on the heretic tank near the entryway, annihilating it instantly. Rayyan and his allies are thrown to the ground, as the heretics scramble to their defenses in preparation for an attack.

Rayyan: "Dammit! Everyone to your stations, NOW!"

Jeb: " :-o , :fu: "

Image

The slaves move to cover, while Rayyan and the heretics charge towards the front line. Behind them, more heretics cross the street from the workshop.

Image

The heretic sniper is quickly neutralized.

Image

Taking advantage of the situation, the civilians move quickly in an effort to free themselves. The old man and his grandson hobble away to safety, while the others tackle the heretics in an effort to steal their weapons, with varying degrees of success.

Image

It isn't long before a Calvarian mechanized division appears on the horizon. Things are not looking good for the supporters of OASIS...

Image

The heretics crossing the street stop suddenly, as they notice a colossal shadow appear over their position.

Heretic soldier: "Oh shit what is that!?!"

Image

A Calvarian War Titan appears.

Image

Two of the civilians are killed for their act of defiance by the heretics, while one successfully takes a carbine from the unconscious heretic, using it to kill a second enemy. Unfortunately for this citizen, he is hopelessly outmatched.

Image

With the civilians killed, the heretics near the truck move towards the front lines, but are cut off as the Titan opens fire with its massive rotary autocannon. Their comrades in the street are shredded like hamburger.

Image

Infantry have little hope against a machine designed to slay super-heavy units.

Image

The Titan turns its attention to the lone heretic survivor, but is unable to fire before the soldier retreats to the relative safety of the workshop.

Image

The Titan then turns its attention to Rayyan, who becomes paralyzed with fear.

Rayyan: "Great Builder, save me..."

Image

Not noticing the mammoth war machine behind them, the slavers and heretics arrive at the front line and fire with all their might.

Image

Yet the hide of the Calvarian tanks prove impervious to their pitiful attacks.

Image

Jeb, Razor, and the heretics are easily slain by the lethal blast, while the cultists manage to evade the attack.

Image

The Stormwind also advances, using its autocannon to clear a path through the minefield.

Image

Heretic soldier: "Keep firing! Don't let up; their soldiers will appear soon enough!"

Image

Gunner 1: "Target sighted...firing now!"

Image

The heretics behind the sandbags are instantly obliterated by the artillery strike.

Image

A cultist is killed as the Stormwind deploys its contingent of soldiers.

Rayyan: "To the right! Kill them!"

Image

More heretics die as the Calvarians advance towards the computer lab.

Image

A second group of Calvarians arrives, leaping over the barricades and aiming straight at Rayyan.

Image

Firing wildly, Rayyan slays a Calvarian soldier as the second cultist goes down.

Rayyan: "Come on then, you Imperial bastards! I've got a bullet for each of you!"

Image

Rayyan hastily attempts to reload his weapon, but it ultimately proves futile.

Image

Calvarian soldier: "Drop it, now! Surrender!"

Rayyan's anger soon turns to sorrow, as he realizes he forgot his suicide vest back home.

Image

Rayyan: "No matter; I will fight another day."

Image

The Calvarians advance towards the computer lab, with one of their soldiers taking a bullet to the chest.

Image

The heretic behind the desk is quickly dispatched by the other Calvarians.

Image

Moving quickly, his comrade attempts to escape by running through the office towards the garage.

Image

But he is not fast enough.

Image

More Calvarians arrive, as they advance towards the Garage in an effort to locate the heretics.

Image

The pinned-down heretics spot their advance however, and quickly open fire, killing two Calvarian soldiers.

Heretic: "Over there! Stop them!"

Image

Another heretic appears from behind the tank's turret, and throws a bundle of dynamite at the Calvarians, killing two more.

Calvarian soldier: "We need support, now!"

Image

Just then, a Calvarian Great Wyrm dropship lands behind the heretic positions, ready to deploy more soldiers to counter the heretics, who are now surrounded.

Image

Two heretics are slain, as the dreaded Stormtroopers emerge onto the battlefield.

Image

The remaining heretics don't last much longer.

Image

The last band of heretics hold out in the garage, waiting for the Calvarians to arrive.

Heretic: They'll be here any second now; don't take your eyes off that door!"

Image

Heretic: " :byzero: "

Image

The results are predictable.

Image

Behind the workshop, the last surviving heretic manages to slip away unseen. Only time will tell as to what might become of him...

Image

With the town secured, the Empire has won their first battle against OASIS. In time, more Calvarians will arrive to take the fight to the heretic forces, and bolster their allies in the region. With Rayyan taken into custody, the coalition has taken a great first step in the fight against OASIS.

General Schmidt: "Ah, Rayyan Aahil. How does it feel to be the one in chains for once?"

Rayyan: "Shut up you fascist bastard! I'll kill you all for this!"

General Schmidt: "That will depend entirely upon us now I think. The only question now is what to do with you. Miss Reynolds and the CSIB would certainly love to question you. I also know that the Inquisition is very skilled when it comes to handling your kind, and I could only imagine what the Knights of Aldasveign would do to get their hands on you. Perhaps I could work something out so that all of them could handle you?"

Rayyan: "Fuck you! I'll never talk!"

Reynolds: "Don't worry, we have ways of making you do that."

Image

And so, the War against OASIS has begun.

Cool battle, but I couldn't help but feel like OASIS was at a complete disadvantage.

It was a surprise attack. Ambushes usually don't go well for the people getting ambushed.

If OASIS was going to launch an attack on these guys they would come with explosives and heavy weapons.

Correct. Calvaria sought to establish a beachhead by overtaking the town with overwhelming force. I'd say they did just that.

Sadly, despite them being one of my major factions, I have little equipment for the Brisovets at this time. The soldiers that you saw here were the bulk of their forces, and the WIP tank in the workshop is meant to be their main battle tank once its done. I have to give credit to Kaplan though; I loved his Invicta tank and the main chassis has a number of similarities to his.
motorhead fan wrote:That was really good! what are the stats for the stormtroopers?
They're meant to be elite units; their armor can slow them down, so they're usually attached to a mechanized column or airborne unit. I would have given them armored stats, but I wanted them to retain some degree of mobility, and they can already mop the floor with most infantry they come across that aren't Knights or armored soldiers.

Skill: 1d8
Move: 4", can sprint at a slight cost to speed (1d6-1 extra inches)
Armor: 6

Stormtrooper armor: A fully sealed suit that makes the wearer immune to most environmental hazards (airborne toxins, etc.) and resistant to small-arms fire with a minimal loss of movement. Servomotors can be attached at additional cost to boost movement speed, though the normal armor allows for sprinting.

Agreed. It was a bit unbrikwarsy imo. I hate to say it because I like the looks of everything and the action is cool and all, but I like it more when both sides take heavy casualties.

Well, I decided to not do that, because Phaleks are already massivly tough as it is, and explosives don't always work.
