Division B

Challenge1 (Lydian) defeated Barrold713 (Boiotian League) 62-40

The 2 hoplite armies in the division drew up against each other and a predictably hard slog was played out on a mostly featureless plain. It was very close and ebbed and flowed constantly but it was probably the superior Lydian cavalry that eventually got behind the Boiotian battle line to clinch the day.

Very good game, thanks Barry.

Division D

MikeMarchant (Ghaznavid 962-1187 CE - Allies: Turkish) defeated KiFi (Sassanid Persian 591-628 AD) - 47/9

An entirely mounted army was fielded by the Ghaznavids, while the Sassanids fielded an evenly balanced army of mounted and foot. The field was clear and open, which suited the mounted well, but to the right of the Ghaznavid centre, ahead of the deployments area, was a pond. The Sassanid infantry were arrayed to the left of this pond, from the Ghaznavid point of view, while the Sassandid cavalry was deployed on the shorter, right side.

Originally eployed dead centre, the Ghazanvids moved switly to right to engage the Sassanid cavalry, sending a very small force of Turkish cavalry wide to the left flank as a small irritation. As fast as the Sassanid infantry tried to shift to their left, my mounted struck fast, Ghilman and elephants and light horse went in without fear, causing chaos. Cataphracts were taken easily by a combination of elephants and flank attacks, the rest of the Sassanoid cavarly was overwhelmed, encirceld and destroyed. Even the Turks on the other side of the field made mincemeat of the archers sent to face them.

The battle was over before the infantry arrived.

This was one of those strange battles where, despite having a large army, perfectly intact and unscathed, Kifi had lost enough troops to lose the game. If the battle had been able to continue for a few more turns I have no doubt the scores would have looked very different.

Bad luck, Kifi, and thanks for a great game.


Best Wishes

Mike
Thanks. It was enjoyable. It would have been a different battle If I had concentrated the Sassinids on one side of the pond.

Regards.
