Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) (5% routed) draws with Cunningcairn (Antigonid) (2% routed)

The Carthaginians occupied some good rough ground. They attempted to gain skirmish superiority but were badly thrashed. The Antigonids stayed deployed in open ground with their phalanxes covered by Heavy Artillery, limiting the ability of the Carthaginian elephants to advance. With neither side willing to attack, both armies called it a day.
Geffalrus :wink:

And yes, neither side was overly interested in venturing into the other's prepared ground. Plus, we spent so long skirmishing that there's not enough time left to really make a fancy plan to change the situation.

Division A

sunnyboy (Lydian) beat youngr (Median) 60-40

A tough opponent with difficult army to come to grips with. The Lydian hoplites plodded across the map after swarms of horse archers, somehow managing to catch up with enough of them to hit the 60% mark.

Thanks for the game Richard, those cohesion tests didn't do you any favours.
Well played. 'Twas a fun game

Division D

Schweetness101- Carthaginian (Hannibal in Africa) 202 BC defeated SLancaster - Indo-Greek 175 BC-10 AD with Indian 500 BC- 319 AD allies: 61-37

Was a close game, closer than the score betrays due a number of late game rallies for me. The battlefield was split by a forest in the middle that SLancaster deployed behind with his massed archers inside of it, and chariots and elephants on his right. I moved forward with a light foot screen to protect my infantry from massed archer fire, and attacked and routed the massed archers in the forest with phoenician foot and scutarii, but suffered some chain routing of my left wing from a chariot flank and elephant attack. My light foot also suffered from elephant pursuits, being regularly chased down and caught, leaving me down by quite a few points early in the match. However, the Indian close fighter and bowmen line in their middle and left eventually succumbed to the superior numbers and quality of Carthaginian foot, and a few cavalry flanks, while the veteran african spears held off a pike unit until I could get two flanks in on it.

gg to SLancaster

Division B

rbodleyscott (Arab Conquest) drew vs youngr (Anglo-Danish + Welsh) 52-55

Arabs got to an early apparently commanding lead, then gradually lost the lead, and in the end were very relieved when night fell.

Division D

rs2excelsior (Byzantine) beat Ulysisgrunt (Kingdom of Soissons) 64-47

The two armies meet on a fairly open map with a few patches of rough ground, very good ground for the Byzantine lancers. A small force of Byzantine infantry and archers held the left flank, intending to pin that wing in place long enough for the lancers to do their work, while a large force of lancers supported by horse archers swung around the right flank. The Soissons troops deployed in two ranks--their higher quality infantry (Legio Comitatensis, Auxilia Palatina, and warbands) in the front, backed by another line of Limitanei in support. A small handful of cavalry was in reserve in the rear. The Soissons left flank held back, delaying the impact of the Byzantine lancers, but were eventually outflanked perpendicular to the original line and routed. The Byzantine infantry held up better than I expected, honestly, and even managed to rout a handful of enemy units, but they failed to hold their ground long enough for the lancers to catch up. The remaining Soissons forces redeployed and did a remarkably good job of denying the Byzantine cavalry flanking charges and the battle was relatively close, within about 5%, but the cohort of armored horse archers under General Philippus Anatoluicus found an opening to flank charge a fragmented warband--and then pursued into another flank charge on another fragmented warband, and then a flank charge on a good order auxilia palatina. That pushed the Soissons army over the 60% mark and ended the battle.

A screenshot of the end of the battle. The byzantine cavalry was between the Soissons army and their original deployment area. You can see the aftermath of the early stages of the battle near where the mouse cursor is.

Good game to Ulysisgrunt, it was close right up to the end. A couple of chain routs/cavalry pursuits into flank charges really did a number on the Soissons infantry. Well played!
