About this creation




Firstly: the Invader scout mecha fires its laser at its assailant, but due to various stresses (ohfrakohfrakthisisn'tgood, etc.) the pilot misses. His opponent, however, is more than willing to show him how to shoot, peppering him with weapon fire.
Dominick takes severe damage to his leg, part of which melts through a leg actuator. However, he manages to stay upright. It will slow him down, though.

The Invader fire support vehicle, an Archer by class, lets loose a volley. One tube strikes true, ripping numerous small holes in the metallic shell of an enemy Banshee. The other does a bang up job on a farmer's Marijuana field a few hundred metres beyond the field of combat.

And over in the middle, well, let's just say neither of 'em's paying much attention to ammo conservation. Several of House Hood's finest fun-size agony dispensers go flying off into the wild blue yonder, but the rest of them spatter more fire and shrapnel over their target. The damage is significant, but heavily dispersed- none of the missiles delivers heavy damage. But then, that's the idea, isn't it? You punch a hole in the enemy's armour with a single shot weapon, then you exploit the damage spreading abilities of the Emperor's Fist launchers to follow up and really ravage his internals.

Speaking of ravaging, the interesting thing about close quarters combat is that no matter who has the upper hand at any given moment, he's generally taking as good as he gives. Nobody really wins a stabbing contest, except for House Hood, who can find a way to sneakily win no matter what happens. So: the target decides to take a less passive role in things, and shoots back. Some of his missiles go flying off and ripping up a nearby hillside (but not the goats, who did a runner) but the rest spread more damage across the Chimera's chest and head. And a tiny bit to the leg, but it's so small as to barely count.
Yes, head. Either Deus is exceptionally skilled or he's ridiculously lucky. Probably the latter, since he's eating while he fights.

Oh, and the laser. Smack dab in the left torso, which leaves it in decidedly shabby condition.



Finn tries to get up.

The armoured might of Moffat's Marauders decides it's a nice day for a quiet hillside drive.

The Invader Chimera takes a swing with its signature sword, but misses.

The two scout mechae begin to travel down the hill, taking different paths.



Finn can't seem to manage it. Crunch, he goes. No doubt he shouts some choice expletives on the way back down. He doesn't get hurt, though, which is fortunate for him.

Lovely day for a drive, eh?

Deus retaliates with another kick, shouting "Za Celovec! Za Trst! Za SpaceSlovenijo!". This one gets our valiant sword wielding missile slinging Portlander in the arm.

More downhill traveling.

In the back you can see one of the Banshees acting like a rugby player.
A lot of hooliganism going on here, ey?



But oh! This time, the sneaky scion of House Hood can't stay upright. He teeters for a bit, and then smashes into the dirt. He lands on his back, popping off a number of armour plates. Fortunately for him, he manages to avoid getting any of his meaty parts damaged in the impact.

He's barely hit the ground before he's being swarmed by a bunch of meaty mudsuckers.
One of said mudsuckers seems to be munching on a potato croissant. Goodness only knows where he got it from, mecha cockpits are airtight.

The charge and downhill rush continue.



And continue.



The Wraith takes a kick, and misses. The Banshee also misses, and ends up to the right of his would be target. Missing: the image where Gondabuggan's faceplanted and Bob's stuck on his side. I forgot to take the picture. So yeah; smash, crunch, etc. But both of them managed to avoid getting injured in the impacts, which I suppose is good. Not as good as not falling at all, though.

Map of starting positions:


Map of ending positions:


------------------------------------------------------------------
Who has line of sight to whom:

Invaders:

Dominick: it'd take a 4 to hit Bob with your laser, or a 6 to hit Gondabuggan with it.
A kick would need a 3.

Unoccupied mecha: it'd take a 6 to hit Gondabuggan with your lasers.
A kick would require a 5.

Tyler: hitting Spaz would take a 9. Hitting M.C. would take a 6. Hitting Deus would take a 6. You can choose to fire at two targets in one turn, but it makes it slightly harder to hit the second one.

Marauders:

Egghead, you have full line of sight to Awe (naturally). If you fire, it's an automatic hit. You can also jump off him, but I can't see why you'd do that.

Spaz: you have full LOS to Awe. It'd take an 11 to hit him with your cannon.

M.C.: hitting Tyler would take an 8.

Deus: hitting Awe with your laser armament would take a 2. Hitting him with your missiles would take a 5. Hitting Tyler with any weapon would take a 6.


Everyone else: you're either out of range or you can't see anyone.



------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the main group:


Private subgroups:

Moffat's Marauders



The 217th Varion Invaders


And it'd be preferable if you wouldn't neglect to post your order form in your respective subgroups.

Okay, you've got most of the week. Next phototaking will be on Friday or Saturday, depending on events.

By the way: the statuelike machine that just managed to avoid getting smashed into by the simple virtue of being stupidly lucky? Yeah, that's available, if any of you want it.

Quoting Finn C-Q I'm guessing I am standing on ice or... Oh well
You've got some damage to your gyro. Think of it like being really drunk, but for a giant building sized war machine.
Quoting Sgt. Will Smith HEY! can I have that caracal but say what I want to do through the comments? If I can I choose to try to smack gondabuggan with my lasers then kick him.
Done.

Yes! The battle continues with much more up close combat going to happening! I wonder how that "charge" will end up...

Quoting Sebeus I wow, is this some kind of board game ? looks cool but also complicated :P
Battletech with lego. Each turn takes about 4 hours, but that's mainly because I have a very haphazard way of handling order forms. And because I decided it'd be an absolutely topping idea to have 14 players rather than a more reasonable number. Like 8. At least it's not Aerotech, then I'd be wrestling with trying to map gravity rules to squares. This is actually a SIMPLIFICATION, believe it or not; there's none of the advanced rules, like TAG, offmap artillery and advanced munitions. Well, there's Inferno missiles, but those just set people on fire. It just wouldn't be manly to leave out those.

Wow. This was REALLY suspenseful! I am lucky, aren't I? This will end badly for someone.
