Division C

sunnyboy (Scots) defeated Oscarius (Rus) 63:40

Quite a slog, the Scots loaded their right with masses of Pict spear-men hoping to take advantage of rough terrain and woods to turn the Rus left flank. The trade off was an under strength left flank comprised of the Scottish horse supported a motley band of viking beserkers. Fortunately for the Scots as the centre collapsed the weight of Pictish numbers won the day on the right and with their left flank acquitting themselves better than expected a hard fought win was secured.

Thanks for the game!

Division A

harveylh – Roman 197-284 AD defeats hidde - Parthian 250 BC - 225 AD with Seleucid ally, 61-40

A map with abundant rough terrain made it difficult for either side’s heavy infantry to do well. However, the Romans had more and better medium infantry which proved to be the difference in the end.

Division B

Geffalrus (Poles) defeats Nijis (Byzantines) 43-10

In a battlefield somewhat constricted by mountain and forest, the Poles and Byzantines each arrived with a preference for infantry over cavalry. Normally enjoying a potential ranged advantage due to their large pool of massed archers and skirmishers, the Poles realized early on that the armored Byzantine infantry and the bows they carried would be more than a match. Instead, the Poles used a screen of skirmishers to get their more cost efficient heavy infantry into contact with the Byzantine infantry. Once again, the Polish dismounted nobles did excellent work dislodging the Byzantine infantry from their hill, while the archers and spears distracted most of the Byzantine cavalry on the flanks. The powerful Clibanarii were able to burst through the Polish center, Kool Aid Man style, but the Polish cavalry in reserve were able to minimize the damage (the Clibanarii, despite being dogpiled by the Poles, survived with barely a scratch). Polish victory was assured once they were able to sneak some cavalry through gaps in the line and start flanking the engaged Skutatoi.

Good game to Nijis.

The end result of spears vs. arrows.

GDod - (Jewish Revolt 66-135 AD) defeats Trogilus - (Dacian 50 BC-88 AD) 53-23

After the firefight was won the ability to move and turn quickly to threaten the unwieldy warband's flanks proved decisive. Thanks Trogilus a nice tussle after so many horse archers.

Division C

Karvon (Sarmatian) defeated Rob123 (Roman 105BC with Jewish ally) 47-16 for a 4-0 victory.

Forests secured the flanks of both armies. Some hills were mixed in on the enemy left. The Roman center was bisected by a fair sized patch of rough ground.

We deployed our massed irregulars in the woods on our right opposite the forest and hills on the enemy left. Half our light foot we deployed screening the medium foot. The other half of our light foot we deployed along the edges of the woods on our left. Three divisions of lancers deployed in line across the center between the woods. One division of lancers we hid behind the woods on our left. A pair of light horse we deployed on the far left beyond the forest.

The Romans deployed their legions in the center an elephant and some horse on their right Some light foot were on each flank and a few screening their center.

We sent our irregulars and light foot on a wide sweeping move across the hills and forests on our right targeting the enemy light foot. Our lancers we shifted to the left in the more open area between the forests on each flank targeting the enemy lights . A few lancers we pushed forward to fix the Roman center.

Our lancers swept the opposing lights away and got tangled up with some heavier infantry behind them. The troublesome elephant succeeded in stomping on several lancer squadrons but pursued beyond the safety of the Roman infantry and got shot down by our lights. The Romans wheeled their infantry to face the growing pressure and threats of our lancers fighting and massing on their right. Our medium foot and lights swept over the hills and thru the woods on our fight coming in on the rear of the Roman line. A few reserved lancers from our center charged in on exposed flanks adding to the growing carnage. More of the Roman infantry in the center broke and the battle was over.
