Lock Your Shields

Anyone here been in the army?
I served with you at Vindobona.
You can help me.
Whatever comes out of these gates, we’ve got a better chance of survival if we work together.
Do you understand?
If we stay together, we survive.
I’m pleased to bring you the legionnaires of Scipio Africanus!
To the death!
Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!
Stay close!
Come together!
Staggered columns!
Staggered columns!
Soon all your men will be slain.
You don’t have a chance!
Lock your shields! Stay as one!
As one! As one!
As one!
As one!
Well done!
Hyah! Hyah!
