Section 8 - Into the Shrieking Gloom by SquiddyTreat Section 8 - Into the Shrieking Gloom by SquiddyTreat
As the Nightmare endured, so too did the people of Earth -- the greater the assault, the stronger grew their will to resist.
The advance soldiers of Section 8 began to encounter remnants of the Earth's military and civilian populations, bringing some of them to the rare safe sites to await evacuation to orbit.
Those who remained had the fury of war behind their eyes, and fought alongside Section 8 to retake what was lost, to destroy what the Nightmares brought.


Two Steps From Hell - To Glory

The remains of the species are finally attempting to fight back, staggered after the terrifying storm brought by the invasion's start, but unwavering.

Since it's been asked several times already, yes -- that is a Spartan III, and yes that is a marine being attacked by the vampire. In this universe, Earth and the colonies from which Section 8 hails have developed almost totally independent of each other for a century or more, and their technology differs significantly.
This particular shot was very much inspired by my time in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Fun game, recommend it!), and I'm damn happy with how the entire scene turned out.
Except the crawler in the shadow on the left. I hate him, because he just didn't want to cooperate when it came time to edit.

Thanks ~Ihavenoname323 for the title idea.
