Schweetness101 - Andalusian 756-1049AD defeats Nijis - Spanish 900-1049AD 61 - 51
This one started very badly for me. Masses of light Spanish troops disrupted most of the Andalusian right wing of irregulars and massed archers before contact had even been made, and that whole flank collapsed quite early, leaving me down by I think about 15 points early on. However, the Spanish cavalry right wing of heavy lancers was subjected to a barrage of fire from a mixed Andalusian left wing massed archers and light archers, who were in turn ZoC protected by a few cheap spears. Those Spanish Lancers were also tied up by, and intermingled with Andalusian cheap lightspear cav and light horse, and after suffering disruptions from shooting and flanks all broke. Meanwhile, after some bad luck initially, the superior quality muslim veterans started to gain the advantage over the average quality Spanish shieldwalls. It remained very close the whole game and could have gone either way.
and here's a picture from the final scene:
GG to Nijis
