In ProgressCrash after early game siege

Build: 1.4.1

Detailed description: On turn 11 as the dark elves I'm defending against a siege from rebels on Naggarond. They have a full stack army and I have a smaller reinforcing army. I've fought the battle multiple times and each time I win. It starts to load for a second and then it crashes. It crashes straight to the desktop without warning, stuttering, or stopping. I've never had any mods installed. I have TW:WH installed and I have played a ME campaign as Lizardmen, but it went fine. Before this campaign, I played a dark elves campaign for ~20 turns before restarting so I can change the unit sizes. That campaign didn't have any problems

Reproduction Steps:
- Defend a siege against rebels in Naggarond as dark elves
- Fight through entire battle normally
- Win
- End battle by clicking the button or letting the troops run off the map
- It loads for a short time
- Crash

Details of any solutions that have already been attempted: I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game. I've uninstalled and reinstalled steam, but I removed the SteamApps folder before uninstalling and then replaced it upon reinstalling. I've played the battle multiple times and it crashes in the same way every time.

I've attached all the logs that I'm supposed to. The autosave is right before I click end turn, at which point the rebels go after everyone else and the immediately begin the siege battle.

    That sounds like the same crash I have. Mine is right after a battle straight to desk top. Multiplayer in ME using the Orks.

    This is the issue I have, after a second after loading the post-battle results from a siege. Frustrating.

    No idea why I posted here. The games been out for a year and still riddled with bugs (even game breaking ones like this), imbalance, and completely broken mechanics. There isn't a single part of this game that isn't filled with some level of broken trash. Creative Assembly would rather nickle and dime customers with 20 different DLCs that take minimum effort to produce and should absolutely have just been in the base game. And then they don't even decrease the price from $60 on either tile over a year later. Absolutely absurd.
