You charge forth, using your spined carapace to lead the way and tearing apart squid left and right. Your army follows close behind as you regroup with the strike teams. The ever-eager Crackler, a young veteran mantis-shrimp, beams at this opportunity to fight alongside you.
The two of you lead the charge, him gripping your spines as you charge forward into the fray. In a moment, he leaps down and clamps onto the eye of a squid, ripping it out and punching a hole in the squealing beast's head. Likewise, you blow four nearby creatures away with your cannons, grappling another and bisecting it. Crackler runs forth and intercepts a blow meant for you, rebounding with fury and tearing limbs from soft bodies. All around you, your soldiers inflict massive casualties while losing relatively few of your own. Unfortunately, most of the protocrabs lay slain on the sand, now red with blood.
The squids' attention is all on your forces now!
You turn and rend some more squid, taking a flurry of blows from the sheer volume of attackers. You lose sight of Crackler at one point, but you're sure he can handle himself. Your reinforcements regroup with you, and your still thousands-strong army is with you in the center of a ring of squid. In the distance, Whitenose has become bogged down alongside his brothers!
