Division C

General Shapur - Spanish 300-10 BC defeats MikeMarchant - Seleucid 124-63 BC with Jewish ally 61:54

Something that didn't look like it was going anywhere turned into a massive brawl.

The Spanish fearing the Seleucid pikes set up in rough ground split about 50/50 on both sides of the field. The enemy were not going to fall for so obvious a ruse, however, and bypassed the Spanish for some nearby high ground. Seeing this happening the Spanish rushed in from safety while the pike squares were scattered across the hills managing to single out a few that broke easily when flanked and then attacking themselves from the high ground. Well, you had to be there. Great game.

(3-1)
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too. M.A.

Division D

Schweetness101 (Carthage, Hannibal in Africa 202 BC) beat cromlechi (Egyptian 405-343 BC): 53-27

Knowing that the Egyptians would vastly outnumber me with defensive spearmen, and have superior ranged capability with the massed archers, I determined to rush forward with my best infantry (veteran Italians, African spears, and heavy warband) behind a light infantry screen in order to engage as quickly as possible. I had a few cavalry for flanks, but no elephants because they would simply be too vulnerable, and not a good matchup against the Egyptian forces.

I formed up the infantry into a column all on my right flank, where the hill that dominated the map was closer to me, best troops in front, with LF screening from MA fire, with the hopes of routing the Egyptian left and center before their long right wing, and reserve of hoplites, could wheel around. I nearly succeeded in that, getting up to almost 30-0 percent rout wise at first. But, when the Egyptian right finally came around, they rapidly routed, through massed archer fire followed with charges and chain routing, my pinning force on the left consisting of scutarii and a veteran African spear unit. This almost closed the gap in a single turn, leaving us at ~39-29.

The battle then became a bit of a slog fest, but a few more flanks on isolated remnants of the Egyptian left, routs of Egyptian early cavalry surrounded by my light foot, rallies of a few scutarrii of mine, and the sheer tenacity of veteran African spears, even when surrounded, finally got me to that >25% gap.

In the picture below:

the top right was the Egyptian starting position, and the bottom left the Carthaginian starting position. The Egyptian left is gone, and their center is engaged all along the ridgeline, both armies having pivoted 90 degrees. The Egyptian right is still intact, has wheeled around, and begun to seize the territory the Carthaginian left and center started on, but too late.

gg to cromlechi

and that's all for me this tournament, good luck everyone! :)

Division A

harveylh – Syracusan 280-211 BC with Carthaginian 235-146 BC ally defeats XLegione - Samnite 355-272 BC with Gallic 300-101 BC ally, 58-20

On a battlefield with rough terrain, woods, and a large steep hill, nearly all the terrain was on the Greek side forcing most of the Samnites to fight in the open where the hoplites and Carthaginian cavalry had the advantage.

Division C

edb1815 (Thracian w Antigonid ally) defeated Bluefin (Kappadokian) 43% -13%

Bluefin was unlucky on this one. The Kappadokian right flank of mainly Irregular infantry was routed by a mixed force of massed peltasts, cavalry and hoplites supported by skirmishers coming down off a hill. A number of chain routs and breakthrough charges made it a quick affair. The Kappadokian infantry wing was in disarray before his superior Iranian cavalry could get into action. A final bit of bad luck was the fragmented Thracian Elephant holding! Thanks for the game.

oscarius (Thracian) beats IMC (Macedonian) 77 - 52

Successful positioning of elephants proved highly advantageous to my cavalry over his, they then returned to the fray quick enough to allow me to envelop the foe. A good tough game
