A region on the outskirts of the fallen city of Vostok

League survivors are fleeing in whatever way they can, with the Black Legion hot on their tail
20201109_215755 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
And massive streams of refugees are still coming from the city
20201109_215833 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The League leaves a token force remains behind to safeguard the path for retreating forces and fleeing refugees

Three SLB soldiers travel through the woods, passing scattered debris left by others ahead of them.
20201109_220735 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Suddenly, a sound from the trees!
20201109_220830 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr*snap*
Another group of League soldiers accidentally crosses paths with them and in their startled confusion they almost shoot each other
20201109_220900 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: GGaaaah!!
20201109_220958 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia 1: S*** We almost shot you! We were waiting to ambush any Legion freaks that came this way, covering the flank for the blockade on the road!
SLB Militia 2: Well lucky for us that you messed up then!, and lucky for you that it wasn't them! cause you'd be dead after that screw up!
Mid conversation, heavy fire starts flying at them with trees getting smoked by large caliber weapons and things start to blow up and catch flame

The Legion's forces have crossed into the Shus region, everything behind them is now surely captured or killed
20201109_221252 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Quickly suffering loses, the League troops fight back with what weapons and cover they can
20201109_221337 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The guy with the machinegun tries to flank the attackers and cover their retreat
20201109_221541 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The situation is quickly getting out of control, more and more Legion troops are crossing into the region.
20201109_221623 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Enemies run into each other
20201109_221801 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
And the League troops are quicker on the trigger
20201109_222030 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Unfazed by their losses, Legion troops keep pushing
20201109_222057 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
As more troops cross over, specialists carrying bigger and meaner weapons arrive behind the cannon fodder.
20201109_222334 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
This particular unit of League troops is eviscerated by heavy weapons fire
20201109_222423 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
And it doesn't take long before there's Black Mages on the field shooting fireballs and magik missiles, In the middle of automatic weapons fire there's suddenley a loud pulse that lights up from the Legion positions
20201109_222613 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
And a sizable explosion erupts in the woods. No doubt magik.

Back at the barricade, the small security group can see a flood of refugees coming, and they can also hear the battle not far off
20201109_224230 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
20201109_224330 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: Sir! That's legion gunfire coming from the woods!
SLB Captain: We have to cover those refugees!
20201109_224928 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Captain: Deploy the mortars!
A few League troops nearby try to help hold the attack back, but it's of little use. they're simply outgunned by the advancing Legion that pay no attention or care to their own casualties.
20201109_225052 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Artillery starts to fall on the woods and some of the Legion are blown away by it, bodies fly into the trees
20201109_225225 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Legion troops rush forward to get ahead of the artillery, exchanging gunfire with the SLB all the way
20201109_225244 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Sorcerer gets ready to yeet the League troops again
20201109_225335 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
And telegraphs his attack so profusely that he promptly catches a bolt to the face
20201109_225507 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The last of the troops in the woods tries to flee
20201109_225753 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
20201109_225907 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: WTF? The artillery stopped?!
They run back towards their own defense line, frantically yelling at their allies
20201109_225935 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: don't STOP THE MORTARS! THAT FOREST IS FLOODED WITH THEM! KEEP SHOOTING!! HELP!
The message gets passed down the trench
20201109_230008 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: More mortars! keep firing!
20201109_230058 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: We're hitting them! keep firing!
Atop one of the hills, a cloaked figure stands and observes the League defenders from afar, presumably an officer of the Legion. Yells across the field, taunting his enemies
20201109_230153 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrMinos: Watch and weep!
His troops crest the hill and move towards the road
20201109_230237 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
20201109_230624 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrMinos: Rip them apart!
All at once, the fleeing refugees become stuck in a shooting gallery as Legion Marauders and Cyborgs mercilessly fire into the crowd
20201109_230632 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
A League Drone Tank escorting the crowd attempts to intervene..
20201109_231004 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
But gets hit and blown up by something immediately
20201109_230933 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Terrified refugees clamber over the sandbags and fortifications, and the League troops can do nothing but watch for a moment as the stream of fleeing civilians blocks any shot they have on the hillside
20201109_230941 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
20201109_231315 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: Captain! they're slaughtering civilians! we have to do something!
SLB Captain: I know!.. but hold this position! We can't do anything for those out there!
The troops from the flank go rogue, ignoring the Captains orders
20201109_231437 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
20201109_231442 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSLB Militia: Hurry!
SLB Captain: No! Get back here! that's an order!
