Division C

oscarius (Rus) beat markwatson360 (Frankish) 62-46

Advantageous terrain and narrow frontage helped me to hold my left flank long enough for the rest of my forces to defeat their foes and come to their aid. Even so it was a gruelling drawn-out bloodbath between two similarly compiled forces. Amusingly a 15 point rabble that was able to single-handedly pin down Mark's own flanking force for about four turns (and inflict a surprising amount of casualties too) might have won me the watch. Great match thanks

Division A

Geffalrus (Antigonid) defeated harveylh (Syracuse with Carthaginian Allies) 43 to 12

Taking a page from the Morkin of Epirus strategy book, the Antigonids opted to bring maximum medium and light infantry to support their pike phalanx. Expecting the Syracusans to occupy the strong defensive terrain in their zone, the Antigonids were duly surprised when the large mass of Syracusan hoplites rolled forward on the attack with elephants and cavalry in support. Redeployed Thureos arrived just in time to prevent a massive outflanking of the pike phalanx as it engaged the hoplites frontally. While the Carthaginian cavalry did eventually make it to the open space behind the Antigonid formation, the hoplite holding force was undone by a series of poor cohesion rolls before any rear charges could be organized.

Good game to my opponent.

Division C

oscarius (Romans) beats DzonVejn (Sassanid Persians) 56 - 16

Right from the get-go things went poorly for the Persians who gambled upon an all cavalry and elephant force. The Roman massed bow (a mixture of imperial and Armenian found some nice rough ground to occupy) and alongside the artillery drowned the Persian cataphracts in fire. Their lighter cousins also managed to outshoot the Persian horse who either dispersed across the map and played little role or unwisely pursued the foot into the entrenched bowmen (and when then swiftly hacked down by supporting Roman infantry). By far the most serious threat proved to be the six units of Persian elephants who even the legionaries had a tough time dealing with and managed to score a few routs. However Roman numerical superiority meant that inevitably these elephants, lacking any support, ended up flanked

Thanks for the game, it was a short and sharp one where both terrain and army composition worked in my favour.

In Division D

SawyerK (Roman/Spanish) defeated bomber23 (Syracuse/Greek) by 65-37.

The Syracuse army was within a hair of turning the Romans left flank but a hastate troop somehow held off three cavalry units for several turns, allowing reinforcements to stem the tide. Legionnaire cohesiveness was key to this victory.

Division B

lydianed (Samnites and Gauls) defeated IMC (Macedonians and Greeks) 47-21.

The Macedonians lost their left wing of cavalry early on leaving Sam Knight and his Gauls the freedom to manouevre and pick off stragglers. The two main infantry lines stared at each other across a valley for the whole battle. Good tactical game.
