Division B

Nijis (Fatimid Egyptian) defeats GDod (Normans) 60-40.

A river and two clumps of woods squeeze the two forces together into a jumbled confrontation. At first the Fatimid archers take a heavy toll but the indomitable Norman dismounted knights surge back. Scores remain only a few points apart until the final turns, when Fatimid cavalry are able to isolate and defeat enough Normans for victory.

Division B

ConstantinIX - Arab Conquest 638-684 AD beat paulmcneil - Polish 966-1057 AD with Viking 900-1049 AD allies 42 : 14

A very good start from my opponent as he secured the mountain in the middle and all my left flank has to run like rabbit under a rain of arrows of his numerous MI archers. But I succeeded in avoiding too much disruption and the match switched when my veteran spearmen made contact whis his "normal" counterpart
Thanks for the game.

Division A

harveylh – Arab, North Africa 789-999 AD with Andalusian 756-1049 AD allies defeats Snugglebunnies – Vikings, Ireland 900-1049 AD with Irish 900-1049 AD allies, 40-9

A waiting game as the Arabs stayed in their deployment area for the Vikings to advance far enough. The Viking masterfully using their cavalry kept the Muslim cavalry flanking force from being a factor till the very end of the game. However, on the other flank, seven or eight squares away was a large force of mainly medium bow hiding in a large forest. Finally, the Vikings advanced far enough and the medium bow advanced to the flank. Fortunately, no armored huscarls were on that flank and the medium bow shot up the shieldwall and Irish kern units which allowed the main Arab battle line to successfully advance. GG

Division A

Schweetness101 - Andalusian 756-1049 AD defeats dkalenda - Byzantine 988-1041 AD 48-23

the map was heavily in my favor, where my side had a large open plain, flanked by dense forests that were in turn protected by mountains, and all of that behind a severely disordering stream. With superior firepower from massed archers + rough equality in lights I was able to motivate dkalenda to advance. Here we are right before our forces met:

and after a few turns of fighting i had sprung my obvious but unavoidable flank units from the woods to surround the byzantines:

and the final scene here

the klibanophoroi and varangians ran rampant, routing quite a few of my units and going the whole game without so much as a disruption between them, but that wasn't enough to carry the day when all their supporting skutatoi, offensive spears and cheaper thematic lancers had melted around them.

In all fairness this game was probably decided at deployment and map roll with such nice terrain advantages for me.

gg to dkalenda.

Division B

Macedonczyk (Byzantine with Arab, North Africa) beats Schmolywar (Arab, Conquest 629-637 AD) 43:11

As a veteran of Arab Conquest use, I knew there would be a tough fight. Additionally, I was surprised when I saw the opponent's position (25 veteran spearman, skirmishes, no horses, no medium foot).

The map made it a little difficult to set up the units but a rough terrain on the right wing helped in the fight:

This forced a tactic that made the game not thrilling: The Lancers blocked the VS, the other horses circled to pull as much VS as possible off the main line. Everything else was shooting at them. To attack VS only when disrupted or close to autobrakes.

Division C

sunnyboy - Scots 851-1051 AD with Viking 790-899 AD allies beat MikeMarchant - Ghaznavid 962-1187 AD with Turkish 600-1036 AD allies, 50-23

The Ghaznavid mobile horse archery backed by the shock power of their Muslim war elephants caused the plodding Scottish foot more than a few head aches. However in a mad, scrambled fight the the Scots foot managed to come to grips with enough of their foes to force the win.
Thanks for the game!

Division F

Blagrot - Andalusian 756-1049 AD beat Nikobeg - Viking, Ireland 900-1049 AD 65%-31%

I sort of feel I should apologise for this game's start, I marched into range of the viking shieldwall and then realised pretty much none of my troops could actually attack it safely. After I shot them a bit the Vikings made the charges instead (or possibly they just got bored) but opened themselves to several flank charges in the process. Once the lancers had gaps to charge through the Viking's fell apart in a seccussion of flank and rear charges, thanks for the game and sorry for the rather passive play.
