Nothing but movement

1b)Next the remaining 2 AE tossed their grenades at Valguard and managed one wound but no dammage to the surrounding models.
2a-b)The Deathstalkers missed their chance to finish off the AE allowing them to take aim at Raelin and cause one wound.
3a-b)from atop the ramparts Syvarris took aim and knocked off another of the AE all the while DW9K moved closer to the east gate.
1a-b)Initiative to the attackers, but the AE failed to cause any further dammage to Raelin before Syvarris took the last man down.
2a-3b)DW9K, the Gladiadatrons, and Blastatrons moved further into position as Syvarris waited for any to come within range.

1a-3b)Init Attackers. Crixus bangs on the door with his new found strength, misses repeatedly, but so do the Agents in trying to stop him. The lone Roman Archer leaves his post to activate the Glyph of Astrio (+1A), giving new hope.
1a-3b) Init Defenders. Crixus continues to hit the door with everything he has, but the 300 year old oak is proving his match. The Agents rain fire down on Crixus causing 4 then 1 more wound finishing the tenacious warrior off.
1a-3b)Init Defenders. NE-GOK-SA is the lone attacker remaining and takes all the fire from the Agents in the tower, taking 3 wounds in the process.
1a-3b) Init attackers. NE-GOK-SA makes a desparate move from the main gate and runs for the East Gate, but is easily taken down by the Agents in the Tower... falling next to his comrad Crixus.
It was a bloody battle. Both sides took immense losses, and after the dust settled only 4 remained.
VICTORY TO THE DEFENDERS... but was it truly?
