Division A

SnuggleBunnies (Abbasids) defeats pantherboy (Indians) 63-41

These Abbasids were a much better lot to fight the Indians with than the Kingdom of Soissons. Cheap Spearmen could beat the elephants in melee if they survived Impact, and masses of skirmishers could absorb much of the arrow storm to protect the rest of the army. Still a close run thing, ultimately secured by a combination of the improbable stand of one of my units of Veteran Dailami Foot against a generalled up elephant in the open until flankers could arrive, and an all along the line charge of Raw Muslim Spearmen against the archer hordes.

Division B

Geffalrus (Palmyra) defeats XLegione (Huns) 45-5 on the worst map for the Huns imaginable. Good game to my valiant opponent who got hosed by the map script.

No joke - the map was close to 50% mountain and forest. Why the Huns and Palmyrans decided to fight it out in the Swiss Alps is a complete mystery. The Huns had no room to maneuver, leaving them with few options to combat the armored Palmyran steamroller backed up by a dense phalanx of massed archers. Three warbands made a valiant stand against the Legions and Cataphracts, but were ultimately ground down while the trapped horse archers were smothered by arrows.

Trapped between a rock and a hard place.

Thanks for the game. Nice not to face armoured foes or clouds of skirmishers who can run away.

Div C

Karvon - Arab (Bedouin) 300-636 AD (Sassanid Persian 350-476 AD allies) defeated Ulysisgrunt - Khazar 738-969 AD 48-20 for a score of 4-0

Battle was joined on the steppe with a few scattered patches of boggy ground.

We deployed our heavy horse archers on the left as a delaying force. Further over to the right we deployed our lancers in a single line. Behind the lancers was our reserve of elephants flanking our cataphracts and some camels. Our light lancers were deployed on the far edges of both wings.

The Khazars deployed four groups of a pair of lancers supported by 3 horse archers in a line across the center of the field a single light horse archer unit was posted at the end of each flank.

We immediately sent our large groups of light lancers to drive off their opposing light horse and envelope the enemy line on both flanks. our heavy horse archers shifted towards the center and our lancers and reserves shifted right to mass on and envelope the enemy in support of the leading light horse.

As the lines closed, the elephants came forward and each charged into different enemy lancers to disrupt and break up their formation. The light lancers came in from the flanks and rear, further disrupting and driving enemy horse archers out of position. The lancers and cataphracts charged in or moved to take engaged enemies in the flank. Our heavy horse archers got chased back a bit, drawing some groups away from the main flanking attack.

In the ensuing melees, we lost some of our troops in pinning attacks or during pursuit, but overall, our plan pretty much unfolded as envisioned and the enemy right and center were broken.

Just to let you all know that I am experiencing serious laptop problems at the moment. I have a new one ordered, which should arrive early next week. I hope to be able to do the Sunday round-up as normal provided my current lap tap is able to cope with it all.

Division D

lydianed (Gepid) defeats bomber23 (Ostrogoths) 54-25.

Good game. Ostrogoths got off to a roaring start, wiping out the Gepid lights in next to no time. Tough Gepid foot and overlapping lancers brought it back in a hard fought melee.

Division B

devoncop (Jewish Revolt) beat SpeedyCM (Sassanid 350BC) 62% to 56%

In a game I thought I had won by about turn 10 thanks to the fragility of the Sassanid Infantry, Speedy having conserved his armoured horse archers and elephants well from the skirmish assault counter attacked hard and had I not won on the turn I did the result would have been reversed. Tough match.

Thanks to my opponent.

(3-1)

Post by pantherboy » Thu Jun 27, 2019 2:04 pm

What I used to do back in the LOEG days was:

For the period based leagues (e.g. Classical, Dark Ages etc.) each player is required to select a specific army list (e.g. Early Armenian – Tigran the Great) from the appropriate DAG (ROR, SOA, IF & SAS) and post it to the appropriate thread for their League (e.g. Season 6 Recruitment - Classical). In each group no two players are permitted to field an identical list though each variant may be fielded by a different player. For example one player may select Bosporan (early) while another takes Bosporan (mid) and finally a third player opts for Bosporan (late). Each season players are not allowed to reselect an army list they have chosen in a previous season until they have played 5 different lists with each list originating from a different nation. I wish to encourage variety within the league and broaden players play styles.

Division A

harveylh - Ptolemaic 166-56 BC defeats youngr - Roman 219-200 BC, 57-31.

With a water feature on one flank and mountains on the other flank, a frontal battle with minimal maneuver ensued. Tough fight as the pikes barely outlasted the veteran Roman legions.

Division C

Geffalrus (Antigonids) defeats paulmcneill (Thracians-Gallic) 48-4. Good game to my opponent who got extremely unlucky with the cohesion rolls.

Antigonid spirits were not initially very high as they faced a Thracian army with excellent medium foot guarding a large stream with a massive hill to fall back on (all things that Pikes and Lancers are allergic to). To compensate, the Antigonids brought extra cavalry and skirmishers to utilize mobility to find a crossing spot. The Thracians pulled back under threat of missile fire, and the Rhomphaia forces were viciously harassed by Cretans and horse archers. The Thracian light troops occupied a marsh and managed to surprise and rout a unit of Thureos. Covered by the marsh, the Chosen Warriors of the Thracians forded the river, nearly swapping places with the Antigonid army. The pikes turned around and marched to meet them, while the cavalry and light troops distracted the rest of the Thracian host. Temporarily outnumbered, the Thracian chosen warbands attempted to fall back, but were hit with some extremely unlucky cohesion rolls. Promptly pursued by pikes and elephants, the warbands were quickly broken and the day won.

The main clash of the two armies. Cavalry and skirms on one side of the river, pikes and elephants on the other.
