[RK20] The Ikan Archives Incident

Read the introduction here


Image
Overwatch - the plains of the Ikan Archives

Image
Faction: MagnaCorp. - 6 Regulars, 2 Light Attack Vehicles - Objectives: Defeat other factions; Secure MagTape boxes

Image
Faction: EnviroCorp. - 8 Regulars, 1 Battle Tank - Objectives: Defeat other factions; Secure MagTape boxes


Image
Faction: StarCorps - 4 Troopers, 1 Trooper Officer, 1 Titan Mech - Objectives: Defeat other factions; Secure MagTape boxes


The Battle Begins!


Turn 1


Image
MagnaCorp. starts with the nearest LAV shooting at the Titan Mech, but it doesn`t even scratch the armor. The other troops move up.

Image
The Titan returns the favor with a single missile. The LAV Pilot tries to bail out, but due to a rolled 1 he obviously forgot to unfasten the seatbelt...

Image
BLAM! The LAV explodes, the pilot, too. First Blood for StarCorps!

Image
The Battle Tank shoots a full salvo at the Titan, overcoming the armor slightly but doing only 1 point of damage.

Image
The closest soldiers shoot at the Troopers, not combining their fire and therefore unable to overcome the heavy armor.

Image
Overwatch - Not much happened, but the MagnaCorp. troops are a little bit cut off of the rest, due to the burning wreckage of the LAV. They´ll need to move around it, or will they just grab all the Magtape Boxes and run off?


Turn 2


Image
At the beginning of the turn, all the troops hear a thundering motor sound...

Image
A Brootal Kustom Kroozer speeds in!
"Oi, ya Panzees! Want all da Fun fer Yerselves? Alwayz appresheatin` a good fite! C´mon ladz!"

Image
Faction: Da Brootalz - 4 Boiz, 1 Ammerzon, 1 Kommanda, 1 Kustom Kroozer - Objectives: Defeat other factions; Secure MagTape Box"Oi, wat shall we do with sum werthlezz Kassett Taips? BLAARGH!"
okay, just Defeat other factions.
"Dat´z rite. BROOOTALZ!"

Image
The Brootalz start to scatter around their quarter of the battlefield, the Kroozer still at full throttle...

Image
MagnaCorp. troops barricade themselves behind the boxes, shooting at the - slightly out of range - newcomers, failing to do any damage.

Image
The others move up, holding back their actions, preparing for brootal attacks.

Image
Meanwhile, StarCorps gives the EnviroCorp. faction a whole Broadside of grenades and gunfire.

Image
The grenades of the Troopers send the well-arranged squads of regulars flying, while the Titan deals proper damage to the Tank...

Image
...creating 5 casualties within the troops, 3 points of damage on the tank and 2 holes in the ground.


Image
An onrushing brootal gets a lucky critical hit with some extra damage dice on another EnviroCorp. troop.

Image
His colleague is not so lucky, missing his direct shot on a MagnaCorp. troop. The Kroozer keeps driving straight across the field, as the Amerzon and one Boi jump off...

Image
The Boi just rolls to the ground, becoming disrupted, the Amerzon yet has a nice skill roll, keeping her flying in mid-air...

Image
Overwatch - End of turn 2 - that escalated quickly!


Turn 3


Image
The disrupted Boi is an easy target for MagnaCorp. Two others take care of the other brootal behind the boxes. "Brootaldammit!"

Image
Two EnviroCorp. guys get rid of another Boi...

Image
...while the Tank, although only able to fire just one barrel, vaporizes the last Boi.

Image
"Brootalfriggindammi-*SPLURCH*

Image
The Titan maximizes his remaining power output by firing one Gun and two rockets at the Tank...

Image
...successfully blowing it up! The two remaining regulars of EnviroCorp. abandon all hope of success and go on a run!
EnviroCorp. defeated!

Image
The Amerzon returns from an anime-worthy flight stunt and also has an outstanding attack roll! She lops off the head of a MagnaCorp. trooper with a smooth movement...

Image
...and makes a stunning superhero landing. Unfortunately, right in front of some shotgun barrels. Not pictured is how the MagnaCorp. troops make quick work of her with their hold-back actions.

Image
The Troopers moved up. They want to get beside the Kroozer to hit it broadsides.

Image
Yet the Kommanda has other plans...

Image
"Keep up kourze and direkshun! Full ahead!"

Image
*Ker-BOOM!* - the Titan can´t withstand the full built-up Momentum of the Kroozer crashing in it at full speed.

Image
The Kroozer Pilot and the Kommanda learn to fly. They both die from the following impacts.

Image
The Mech Pilot dies in the flames of the related explosions. The brootalz leave the battle with a blow.
Brootalz defeated!



Turn 4


Image
The remaining MagnaCorp. troops take advantage of the reigning chaos. the LAV pilot puts the pedal to the metal, not caring about what or who he runs over. He has a plan. The rest moves up.

Image
The Troopers have to move up, too, not having any line of sight between the wrecked vehicles that surround them. Only one comes into weapon range for the LAV. He critfails with his head held high.

Image
"Darn."

Image
*PRÖKK* (yes, this is exactly the sound of a LAV running over a Trooper in heavy armor!)



Turn 5



Image
The pilot uses his action to deploy the gunmount drone.

Image
He then goes into reverse and comes to halt besides one of the MagTape Boxes. Most of the other troops close the gap to the drone.

Image
They fire at the StarCorps Troopers, but due to bad use rolls they don`t get a combined attack to penetrate the armor.

Image
Revenge comes instantly, with some well placed shotgun loads the drone is taken down...

Image
...as well as another regular. *Kaboom*



Turn 6



Image
Things happen quickly now. Several shots go in the Troopers´ directions, as two combined attacks they take out their targets effectively.


Image
Also very effective are the last two grenades from the Troopers´ launchers, killing three of the remaining MagnaCorp. soldiers and knocking back the last one. Meanwhile the LAV pilot has grabbed one of the boxes and stowed it in the back of the vehicle.



Turn 7



Image
The pilot jumps back into the cockpit and gets ready to leave the place as fast as possible, while the last troop sits up to aim at the remaining troopers...

Image
...but they send her to oblivion. With overly effective damage rolls (2 extra dice!) her head turns to drizzle. Yet in the meantime the LAV manages to leave the battlefield unharmed but with one box of MagDisks.

Image

MagnaCorp completed 1 objective partially, StarCorps wins the battle!



Image
Captain Arnold Willis: "Phew, that was a close one. Looks like we have to rally troops and take those MagTapes back from MagnaCorp. soon! And those Brootalz guys? What the flark? Where are they coming from all of a sudden? Not as if we had enough enemies at the moment! Well, we´ll see where that all leads. Anyway, we will have to increase our military presence in the galaxy considerably! I will recommend to increase the budget for StarCorps extensively on all accounts!"


The End?

Fun - 15 There was nothing too amazing but some actions were pretty fun
Violence - 7 A lot of explosions from the Titan mech, and a lot of minifies exploding
Photography - 7 Photography was fine, but a bit shaky in a few photos
Writing - 8 Clear and makes sense


Story - 9 The lead up to this makes it all the more better

Huh, weird. I thought I had posted my judging, but it vanished...

Let's try this again.
Fun: 19 I loved this report. Lots of action, lots of explosions, lots of fun character interaction!
Violence: 10 Things went boom. Minifigs died. You made CRATERS for the explosions. CRATERS.
Photos: 10 You did some interesting photo angles. They were clear, easy to see, well-lit, and did a good job of highlighting the action.
Writing: 9 Action was easy to follow, and the writing did a good job of describing what happened.
Story: 9 While I enjoyed the battle, the rationale for why they were fighting was a little odd. Then the Brootalz showed up, which was hilarious. Seemed a little forced getting all four factions onto the board. Wrap-up at the end was a nice touch.

:troll: :troll: :troll: :troll:



Fun: 20! Fookin BROOTALZZZ!!! EPIC EFFECTS, Wth are those green things you used for the missiles?? I've never seen them before but I loved them! Explozives!! Snakes for guts!! Yes yes yes!


Violence: 10 See above^^ So much chaos here!
Photography: 9 Great angles and clear pics, captured the BROOTALZZZ well!
Writing: 7 Honestly, I was engorged in the pics too much to read carefully, but what stuck with me was good!
Story: 7 Again, pics captured my attention too much, but with the exception of adding the brootalz, which was ossum btw, the story made sense with the battle.
