Ling Fei scans the battlefield looking for the two Ghosts. She has plenty of opportunities to waste several scum ILID but remains calm, trusting her team to do the job.
She sees another wave inbound approaching slowly along the tree line from the West.
The enemy platoon stays hidden within the tree line. She watches, but something seems different. Their movement, their tactical drills, and weapons handling are superior regarding the regular ILI army.
Suddenly they burst out firing, though Ling Fei's team do not open fire. The approx twenty-five men fire upon the attacking traitorous ILID, in a surprise flank attack, killing many.
Its Oscar Company lead by Wolf Skin. He puts down enemy after enemy.
He gets up close and personal, stabbing his marine dagger into several throats, and faces. The ILID may outnumber the marines, but the marines are Special Forces commandos.
Their surprise attack on the flank and the heavy fire from the walls put an end to the traitorous ILID.
The Corps make their approach upon the base. Echo team stand down but remain vigilant. They scan for more ILID and are aware that the Ghosts and Death Guard are still around somewhere.
The village bridge drops over the moat, and the marines enter. As the marines run over the bridge, one shot is fired killing two marines. The walls open fire again, spraying bullets into the trees.
The loyalist Invictus guard the wall, laying low so that their heads are not blown off by enemy snipers.
Echo and Oscar regroup and discuss the situation. The Doctor immediately sees to the Colonel and Laurels.
Before getting any rest, the marines clear the buildings, kicking down doors, and tossing grenades inside. The remaining villagers are accounted for, and patrol the village, and man the walls.
Suddenly other explosions go off within the village; several marines run to respond but are stabbed by Death Guard commandos who lay in the grass.
Julius radios it's a diversion. One Death Guard sneaks up on Wolf Skin with his Death Guard dagger milliseconds away from killing Wolf Skin.
Wolf suddenly turns, spinning around, and slashes the Death Guard's wrist, releasing his Death dagger, then grabs the Death Guards hand, pulling in forward, then sticks his marine dagger into the traitor's throat.
Another Death Guard runs at Wolf Skin but is hosed down by several marines laying in wait, counter-ambushing the enemy.
After clearing the village, they still know several Death Guard are unaccounted for.
Sit-Rep requests Ling Fei.
Two Ghosts still out there plus five Death Guard with Brutius, and Dead Shot leading command.
Ammo count good, forty villagers alive, ten are wounded. Six injured Laurels including the Colonel, four Rifles, four Stormtroopers including myself, and twenty-three marines replies Julius.
OK, the villagers will remain in the village square, covering all corners. Corporal Chib's, Rifles, two Stormtroopers accompany them.
Captain Julius, Primachus Tomb Stone, and two Stormtroopers, you hunt down the Death Guard hidden amongst us.
I'll deal with Dead Shot, and his boyfriend. Sergeant Wolf Skin, break your unit into two sections and search the forest orders Ling Fei.
I'm in the pink, ready to fight states Colonel O'Bloodern, as he attempt's to look unfucked, walking over.
Ok Colonel, stay with a squad of villagers, protect the main entrance replies Ling Fei.
The various teams move out and search the ground, but the enemy remains hidden.
Suddenly a loud crack is heard from a distance. The sound echoes throughout the area, a deafening scream.
Ling Fei sees the red sky opening up just past the forest. The sky looks like a whirling black hole, hundreds of yards wide.
Seconds later, dozens of blasts emanate from the center of the hole. The streaks of lights zoom to earth behind the forest.
Avalanche, avalanche, Oscar team, Fog inbound, Troop strength.
Get back to the village ASAP orders Ling Fei over the radio.
Gunfire rings from the forest. Muzzle flash lights up the darkness, and seconds later, Oscar Company bolt from the forest.
The two sections make a tactical withdrawal, as they fire towards the trees. As soon as they are two hundred yards clear of the forest, Echo opens up, giving fire support.
The Stormtroopers placed on the wall, fire two 68 rockets. The rockets speed toward the forest, and kaboom, explode, lighting up several trees.
The marines speed towards the village, just six hundred yards to go, but then suddenly, Demon Hounds burst out of the trees. The seven-foot, gigantic dogs sprint towards Oscar. Oscar hit several of them, but it does little to slow the massive, red-colored, soldier eating Demon dogs.
Steam foams from their mouth, as they gain on the marines. Aarrgghh, one Marine is run down, and bitten in half, another sprays his mag into one, only to be mauled.
The marine's head is pulled off. Several more marines are chased down by the pack of twelve giant monsters.
Tomb Stone decides to open up, bam bam his Trident hits one, cutting straight through the Demon Hound's thick skin. The Demon slides across the grass and dies.
Bam another hit, taking its leg clean off, then another two shots to the body, killing it.
Reloading shouts Tomb Stone but smack, he's hit, and knocked backward off the wall. Tomb Stone smashes to the ground after the hit from a Ghost's high powered rifle.
He groans for a second then shakes it off.
Alive and bollocks, that hurt says Tomb Stone.
Ling Fei takes aim at the shoots origin, and splat, liquids spray from nowhere. The Ghost is hit in the neck.
The havoc continues, as the marines are chased down by the killer dogs. The marines make a quick sweep while two Demons jump and miss, instead, they fall into a death pit.
With one hundred yards to go, the draw bridge opens.
More incoming radios Julius. This time massive flying creatures appear over the trees. Ten gigantic flying Demon Vultures, sweep. The walled guards open fire, hitting two through their wings.
The marines sprint over the bridge. One Hound jumps into the village, only to be greeted by a dozen spears held by locals. The mortified villagers stab violently at it over and over again.
The Vultures are fast, sweeping at rapid speed, crushing their massive claws into villagers.
Julius fires, blowing off one's wing, spinning it as it smashes to Earth. One Vulture flies towards Tomb Stone but receives a chop to its neck by his Templar sword, cutting its ugly head off.
A third biker suddenly appears and fires both his Delta bike mini rockets, which blasts a few villagers on the wall.
The villager's body parts burst apart, covering other men in blood and guts. Body parts smack off nearby walls, and bits of head bounce along the ground.
The biker now storms over some broken terrain, ramping straight over the wall. He lands, reeves, and blasts his Uzi rounds into a few villagers who try to fire back.
The biker turns, seeing Colonel O'Bloodern standing one hundred yards away. Reeving and reeving, he hits the throttle while blasting his Uzi, click out of ammo.
He throws his Uzi aside and pulls out a large machete. O'Bloodern stands ready and slowly reveals his four-foot-long battle hammer.
Standing still, the biker zooms towards him when suddenly O'Bloodern side steps swinging and smashing his hammer into the front wheel.
The bike comes to a sudden halt, its rear end swings up from behind, and the ILID biker is thrown thirty feet through the air. The biker lands hard into a makeshift barricade.
O'Bloodern casually walks over towards the stuck biker, steps over him, unzips his trouser zip, and pisses all over the traitor while laughing.
Ling Fei clocks this, and sniggers. Happy Chappy saying to herself.
While the Hounds, and Vultures are running riot, the Death Guard make their strike. They appear from the shadows, and grass, firing their silenced pistols, and ramming their Death Guard daggers into villagers, killing five.
Ten villagers throw spears but miss. The Death Guard kill the distance and stick their knives through the local's faces. One local throws at Brutius, but he catches the spear and throws it back. The spear pins the local to a wooden wall.
Julius clocks Brutuis and opens fire, hitting one Death Guard, then charges, and the two unarmed combat Masters get into a deadly scrap.
Special Forces vs Special Forces, both beat the absolute shite out of each other, receiving many chops, and boots. The other three Death Guard are preoccupied in a gun battle with two Stormtroopers, and several villagers.
Julius gets kicked into a pile of wood. As he gets back up, a Vulture grabs him and flies away. The Vulture's thick claws crush into Julius' Dragon Armor.
His rifle is ripped off and falls. He manages to grab his pistol, and batter round after round into the Vulture's wings, body, and head, then he falls into the river.
During the firefight, the Death Guard managed to disappear back into the shadows.
Ling Fei heads to the small village church, but she is followed by the Death Guard. Upon entering the church, she searches for reflective surfaces. Quietly, the Death Guard enter behind her.
