Division E

snooky51 (Parthian 250 BC-225 AD w/ Arab 312 BC-299 AD allies) defeats morat (Lombard 568-569 AD) -- 66-56

Tight game throughout. Parthians were able to curl around the Lombard right flank and use the high ground the Lombards originally occupied, against them. Lombard left flank wasn't able to clear the Parthian right in time to sway the battle.

(3-1)

Division C

oscarius - Jewish Revolt 66-135 AD beats MorkinTheFree - Romano-British 407-599 AD: 47 - 6

A large steep mountain on the right hand side of the map expanded into an epic battle that Morkin's low grade heavy foot was terribly suited for. More difficult terrain across the map limited my foe's capacity to make use of his superior frontage (though both armies were damn huge truth be told).

Division F

TomoeGozen (Soissons) defeats PepeSlithereine (Sarmation) 65 - 46.

Not fancying my fairly average sub-roman foot going head to head with a load of crazy charging Sarmation lancers (The entire army was lancers!) I beat a hasty retreat to a defensive line between a nice big forest and a nice hill. My warbands filled the flat open space between the two whilst my sub-roman foot cowered on the hill top and tried to avoid eye contact with the lancers...
On my left , in the forest, both sides tried to secretly sneak cavalry through the dense undergrowth to appear behind the enemy . Fortunately for me I had sent more cavalry than the enemy when they blundered in to each other. On the right the Sarmations started to work around my flank amonst the rocks and trees in the hilly ground.
The lancers began charging in , falling back each time after having caused some damage they began to wear me down. Fortunately my cavalry success , and some hidden mediums , in the forest on my left allowed me to flank the Sarmation lancers that were hitting my warbands. This really kicked things off , with lancers starting to fly in from all angles in order to do more damage to me than I was doing to them. In the end I had to abandon my position and go after the horsemen , trying to trap them with flank attacks. The battle now broke up in to lots of little combats all over the battlefield where simple attrition rates allowed my much larger foot units to wear the smaller cavalry units down. It was this difference in unit sizes that made the difference in the end , the Sarmations were simply worn out.

Thanks to PepeSlitherine for a great fight , it was a fascinating battle that could easily have gone the other way.

Division D

Aetius39 (Bosporan) defeats Doyley50 (Roman) 60-38

This was TOUGH. The Romans are superior and resilient. The Bosporan infantry stayed back and awaited the Roman onslaught, while the cavalry ventured out and met theirs. Bosporan cavalry was better and it showed; they routed most of the enemy cavalry and later turned around and helped flank and fight the remaining Roman infantry. The Roman infantry was better and it showed; they pushed back and started decimating the Bosporan line. Luckily the Bosporans hid one irregular in the small forest and it managed to flank one of the Roman infantry. This and having the more numerous Bosporan line spread out helped thin the ranks a bit in the Romans. Nevertheless, my opponent's capable playing and the constant regaining of cohesion made this a very hard match, and although the Bosporans won in the end, they were battered and worn out. Thanks a lot to my opponent for playing, GG!

Division C

kraff (Kushan 130 BC-476 AD) beats Challenge1 (Germanic Foot Tribes 260-599 AD with Roman 379-424 AD allies): 63-49

Tough challenge. Only arrow shower and careful maneuvering followed by flank attacks allowed me to win this one against superior numbers and armour. 1 point more for my opponent and this would be just a minor win. If not for elephants this would probably be my defeat or at most a draw. Thank you for the battle, Challenge1.

Conteshard Byzantine 493-550 AD beats TomoeGozen Kingdom of Soissons 461-486 AD with Germanic Foot Tribe 260-599 AD allies 57-28

a great and tense battle: byzantine infantry succedded in containing the warbands impetus long enough for the cavalry to get in the game, but it was touch and go till the end.

Division D

Aetius39 (Bosporan) defeats Warg1 (Scots/Irish) 41-14

The Bosporans were outnumbered but lucky enough to be near a long hill, otherwise they would have positioned themselves against a side to protect their flank against the more numerous Scots/Irish. In the opinion of the Bosporan commander, the fact they had more lights helped early on, as they kept the Scots/Irish ones at bay and inflicted heavy casualties on the lighter armed enemy. The way the Bosporans were positioned, the Scots/Irish could not outflank, and so going head to head with a stronger line eventually started breaking the less well-equipped enemy, although there was always a danger of getting ganged up on early on and overwhelmed. A harder game to play then the score suggests, thanks Warg for the game!
